Q: Why am I directly brought to the first unread message after entering a chat? How to modify such settings?
A: In Messenger, you will be directly brought to the first unread message by default after you open a chat in case you miss any information. You can also modify such settings by taking the following steps:
Desktop app: Click Settings on the right side of a group chat and set When I view this chat, start from as the last unread message.
Mobile: Click the + icon in the upper right corner of a group chat, select Settings and set When I view this chat, start from as the last unread message.
