    Yesterday, the icon for Facebook messenger changed from the normal lightning bolt to a dog bone. I cannot figure out why, or how to change it back! I've even removed messenger from my phone and reinstalled it. I did all the usual - turned the phone off, took out the battery, etc. How do I change it back?

    Do you have a screenshot of what you're trying to describe? Did you receive any app update prior to the change?

    Press the volume + key and power button at the same time for screenshot

    I've tried that, more than once, and cannot seem to make it work. But it is literally the same white conversation bubble, but, instead of the normal lightening bolt icon, it's a dog bone.

    I have the same problem. Been this way for awhile, I saw in a comment thread awhile ago that someone else had it as well. It first showed up on my Icon, then on my 928, both times after a reboot. Not sure about my 520. Here is a picture.

    Also, I have no idea how to get rid of the infernal thing. I just make the tile the really small size. Which model phone do you have?

    Just talked to T-Mobile and they say it's coming from the manufacturer of the app. For them, it's listed as a permanent change (?) but I think that's crazy! No one changes their logo! Anyone know how to contact windows?

    Contact the developers of the app, via mail and FB

    "via FB" IT IS FACEBOOK ;)


    Facebook will get right on fixing this for the handful of people it seems to be happening to...

    I just checked, I had sent a tweet with the new tile on April 9, to Rubino, Thurrott, and Facebook, but no one commented on it. So it's been at least that long for me.

    I bet its something from development related to testing that somehow got displayed.

    See "dogfooding"
    Eating your own dog food - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Google's "Dogfood" YouTube app (basically builds for internal testing by actual usage) has a similar icon.

    I would presume its a cosmetic bug in this case though.

    If that was the icon I might consider using Facebook.

    OK not really, Facebook is anathema to me.

    They must have pushed a Dogfood build out to some of you by accident, I still have the lightening bolt on mine.

    This is probably the most bizarre thing i've seen happen on a Windows Phone.

    Maybe they're trying to send you a message. On the internet, no one knows you're a dog. But Microsoft knows... They know.
