[Solved]Messenger chat color gradients do not seem to work (properly)

  • Hey everyone.

    I was trying to get the Messenger chat color gradients to work on Opera, but sadly no luck so far.

    To clarify, it's about these chat color options:

    Even when the color gradient option is selected, the chat color will remain 'solid.' I do believe the color is being picked up from the option you have selected, but the gradient effect will not follow. Thus resulting in the chat to be colored in a solid/static manner.



    I have tested this (and encountered the 'issue') in:

    • Messenger pop-up tab while using Facebook
    • Dedicated Messenger / Facebook messages page (
    • Facebook Messenger 'app' from the Opera Sidebar

    Example from different browser (this case: Mozilla Firefox):


    I am using Opera for Windows (version 62.0.3331.99)

  • I wanted to follow up that as of version 66.0.3515.27, this is fixed! Color gradients in the chat will now display correctly!
