How to Enable Chat Heads for WhatsApp like FB Messenger
There are many applications available for enabling Chat Heads in WhatsApp without rooting your device. But as of now, I hope Dashdow is the best one for trying this task on Android platform. So without dragging lets step into the tutorial part.
Let’s start with downloading and installing DashDow app in your Android mobile.
Once you installed it, open it. Make sure you check ‘Notification Access’. If it is unchecked by default, you might be on Android Marshmallow, and you need to turn on Notification Acess for this application manually by tapping it.
Then you will be taken straight to the Notification access activity and toggle the button of “Dashdow for WhatsApp” and click on “Allow”
You are done! Don’t change any other settings; these tweaks are enough to enable WhatsApp chat heads on Android devices.
This is the easiest method to enable chat heads in your WhatsApp Account in any Android mobile. If you are using Android mobile and WhatsApp, then you should try out this trick on your device too.

Thanks man. Keep Visiting
This guide was so helpful. Read all your post from top to bottom that’s a great way to do this but I have a question how can I do the same with iPhone ?
Amar Ilindra says
iOS architecture won’t allow screen overlays. So, it is not possible to show chat heads on iPhone unless you jailbroke it and try some Cydia tweaks.
