    Hello...

    Been looking in Google for this and nothing. I'm using a wireless keyboard with my ipad and can't find how to use the enter key to send messages in Facebook messenger app. Is there a way to hit send from the keyboard without touching the screen?...

    Have you tried TAB > RETURN or SHIFT + RETURN? Or multiple TAB presses to focus input on the send button.

    Keep in mind that if Facebook didn't add support for a physical keyboard, then very little will help you. iMessage has support for the return key, so it definitely does work its just app dependent.

    You can't. I'm on an android phone and I can't either.

    On the Facebook App, enter starts a new paragraph. On the website, enter sends the message (or you can change it)

    They figure it is a mobile app, so you will be typing on the screen. The App thinks you're typing on the screen. Doesn't matter that you are using a keyboard.
