So you were trying to communicate with someone via Facebook Messenger call, yet you found out that it ends immediately?
You might have encountered the issue by trying to call only one person.
Another situation may take a place when you’re calling multiple persons on messenger but still can’t, as the issue is still occurring.
The main reason why your Facebook Messenger call ends immediately is that your friend ignored you on Messenger, and this applies in case the call is ending only with that specific person; It could be that there is a technical issue on the app, very likely a bug.
As Messenger is still frequently getting new updates, the issue may happen on some devices but in very rare cases.
Today, I will explain to you why the Facebook Messenger call ends immediately, and how to fix it.
Why Does Facebook Messenger Call Ends Immediately?
A Facebook Messenger call ends immediately because your friend has ignored you, so you are still their friend but can’t call or message them, yet you won’t be able to call them.
However, this isn’t always the case.
There are other issues as well that leads the Facebook Messenger call to end immediately:
- Your friend has ignored you on Messenger;
- They have disabled their Facebook account temporarily;
- Messenger isn’t working correctly and there is a bug, probably.
These are the most common reasons, as most users who had those issues weren’t able to contact their friends via Messenger calls.
So keep reading to understand how to find out if you’ve been ignored or if this is only a technical issue.
How Do You Tell if You Are Blocked or Ignored on Messenger?
If you were either blocked or ignored you won’t be able to get in touch with the person who decided to make a distance from you.
When someone blocks your Facebook profile, it means that they don’t want to see your account anymore.
In this case, won’t be able to open the Messenger chat again or even call them unless they unblock you.
However, when you suspect that you’ve been ignored, you could find out in three ways:
- When you call them, the Facebook Messenger call ends immediately (This is the fastest and straight forward evidence);
- Sent messages will show an empty circle with the true checkmark in it;
- You won’t be able to see them when they’re online, yet, you can visit their profile.
Usually, when someone ignores you, they will only block you from messaging and calling them.
So you can still do so, but you won’t get any reaction from the other part.
What Does an Empty Circle Mean on Messenger?
An empty circle on Facebook Messenger has multiple meanings, and one of them is that you’ve been ignored.
The general meaning of an empty circle on Messenger is that the recipient hasn’t received your message on their end.
Keep in mind that you can’t always take into account that you have been ignored.
So consider the meaning below:
- The person you’re messaging is offline;
- You’ve been ignored on Messenger;
- You have an internet connection issue;
- The Messenger app is having a temporal outage.
The best thing you can to solve all the issues above in common is to first check your Internet connection, then try to call the person.
If the call on Facebook Messenger ends immediately, then consider you’re ignored.
Otherwise, you can check the Downdetector website for the Messenger server outage, and restart your phone if any additional issue occurred.
