Use your device’s screenshot feature

We all love taking screenshots nowadays! Whether it is a meme we see or a dress we like, our gallery is rich with screenshots.

We probably won’t have to explain how you take screenshots on your device! However, we will still go ahead with the general guidelines for you to understand.

Please remember we will go ahead with this approach only if you have short conversations to screenshot. The method will fail to work if you want to screenshot the entire conversation in one frame.

But, if you have longer conversations, you can still slide up and begin taking screenshots from above. Let’s see the entire process to take screenshots below.

Step 1: Navigate to the Messenger app on your device.

Step 2: You will be directed to the app’s chat interface. Locate the person whose entire conversation you want to screenshot.

Step 3: Open the chat once you find it. Scroll up from where you need the pictures and take a photo of them. You should hold your volume down and power button together if you are an android user.

The iPhone users can press the side and volume up buttons to do the same.

Request for data download on Messenger

You cannot screenshot the entire conversation if you have exchanged messages for a long time because it won’t fit in one screenshot.

However, there is a way, and it is via the messenger app.

We are asking you to go for the data download option on the app! We know you are aware of it, but if you aren’t, we will let you know.

To begin, we must clarify that you need the official Messenger mobile app to follow this approach. The approach doesn’t work for people who use the app on their computers or laptops. We say this because you can only request your messages on your mobile app.

Messenger gives you access to get a copy of your information at any time. Remember that you can download a complete copy of the information or select only certain data to download.

The app sends a notification when the copy is complete and ready for download so you can download it. Note that the data can be downloaded on any device of your choice.

Speaking of which, do you know how to request data download on the Messenger application? There are no worries if you don’t because we are willing to help you.
