Just turn on the toggle on the permissions screen and dole out the necessary permissions to hit the ground running. On the welcome screen, you can hit the ‘Test Chat Head’ option to see a message pop-up on your screen.Tap on the chat head to see a complete Messenger-like texting interface. You also find the ‘Apps’ option here, where you can see a list of apps compatible with Direct Chat and add new apps to the same.Lock Screen: The app makes it possible for you to continue conversations directly from the lock screen via chat heads, which can be really handy but does come with its privacy concerns.I won’t suggest you have chat heads enabled on the lock screen.You’ll also see an option to save custom themes you create as a profile, which is surely another plus.Colors: By default, the colors are selected from the app profile but you can change the color of almost everything including the title bar, background, incoming/ outgoing texts, and even the send button itself.
So, let’s get started with getting those chat heads flying across your screen. First, head to the Play Store and install the Direct Chat app (Free) on your Android smartphone. To get started with Direct Chat, you need to provide the app the permission to draw over other apps and access the notification content.If you have blocked chat heads for a specific contact, you can unblock it through Direct Chat’s settings.
