Like any other mass communication tool over the Internet, Facebook Messenger has an immense storage capacity to save the conversations and multimedia files that its users share.
This storage space can be used to store our own content. That is, use it as a kind of hard drive in the cloud, and thus be able to have it at hand with the simple fact of opening the application on our cell phone or PC.
Trick for storing files in Messenger
The only thing you need to get this benefit is to resort to a simple trick: start a chat with yourself. In this way, all the texts, voice notes, photos, videos or PDF files that are shared in this chat will be available online from your Messenger account. The trick is the following.
