Messages for Android
You will receive a notification on your VSCO Profile when someone has sent you a message.
You can find all of your messages in the Notifications center located in the top right corner of your VSCO Profile.
Leaving a message thread
If you’d like to stop the conversation in a message, you can leave it at any time.
To leave a message thread, you can swipe left on the message and tap on Leave. You can also tap on the message to see the message thread, tap on the Options icon in the upper right corner and tap on Leave.
This will temporarily hide the conversation from your Messages until that conversation is re-initiated by the sender.
If the conversation is re-initiated the entire message conversation will reappear in your Messages in the Notification center.
Muting a message thread
If you'd like to stop receiving push notifications for a message thread, you can mute the conversation.
To mute a message thread, you can swipe left on the message and tap on Mute. You can also tap on the message to see the message thread, tap on the Options icon in the upper right corner and tap on Mute.
If you’d like to stop the conversation, you can either block or unfollow the user.
The user will no longer be able to message you because you do not follow them.
