On Facebook Messenger, on my Android phone, I want to permanently mute audio notifications for new text messages, but I would still like to receive a chat bubble.

Is this possible?

The trick is to look in the Android settings for this, rather than in the Facebook messenger.

In Settings -> Notifications it will list all of your applications, and the notifications settings they have.

Some applications will have several notifications tfor the given app.

In the 'chat and calls' notifications - you can disallow sound. The downside here is that this will also prevent Messenger calls from making a sound.
