    Default Chat Heads not working for Go Launcher...

    So I have Go Launcher and I just installed FB Messenger just to get the Chat Heads, but when someone text or message me, the Chat Head won't show up. Though when I switch to TouchWiz, I can see the Chat Head.
    Does anyone know how I can enable the Chat Head feature when using Go Launcher..???

    Thanks!

    You'll probably have to wait for an update from the GO Launcher devs.

    I'm using Go Launcher too and thought that was my problem but I can't get Chat Heads to work even when using Touchwiz.

    Did you download the extra app from facebook? I believe you have to go within the facebook app settings. I believe its called facebook home. I tried the home launcher...its not for me. I guess you use facebook alot it would be awesome butnot for me.

    Yes, I updated Facebook and Messenger because supposedly you can use Chat Heads for SMS without installing Home. That didn't work so I uninstalled everything and then reinstalled FB, Messenger and also installed Home. Chat Heads are still not working. :-(

    This is all I have under SMS/MMS Settings. Can't find anything about using Chat Heads.

    I have Nova Launcher and its working. Don't remember turning it on or downloading it. But it's there.

    Chathead visibility on the nova launcher has the same visibility rules as the status bar. Not sure if it's the same with any other launcher...
    Try disable the 'hide the status bar' option in nova (or whatever launcher you have) and see that that works... HTH!
