Are you tired of those annoying text message bubbles popping up on your Android device? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of turning off text bubbles on Android. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

If you haven’t already, locate and open the default messaging app on your Android device. This app is usually denoted by an icon resembling a speech bubble.

Step 2: Access Settings

Once you have the messaging app open, look for the three vertical dots or three horizontal lines icon in the top right corner of the screen. Tap on it to access the settings menu.

Step 3: Navigate to Notifications

In the settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Notifications” option. Depending on your device and messaging app version, this option may be located under “Advanced” or “General” settings.

Step 4: Disable Text Bubbles

When you enter the notifications settings, look for an option related to text message notifications or chat heads. It may be labeled as “Bubbles,” “Chat Heads,” or something similar. Toggle off this option to disable text bubbles on your Android device.


  • If you can’t find a specific option related to text message bubbles in your messaging app settings, it’s possible that your device or messaging app does not support this feature.
  • In some cases, this feature might be located in a different section of your device’s settings menu rather than within the messaging app itself.

Step 5: Enjoy a Bubble-Free Experience!

Congratulations! You have successfully turned off text message bubbles on your Android device. You will no longer be bothered by those pesky pop-ups while using your messaging app.

Remember, if you ever want to re-enable text bubbles, simply follow the same steps and toggle the appropriate option back on.

We hope this tutorial has helped you customize your Android device to suit your preferences. Enjoy a distraction-free messaging experience!
