How to Add Messenger & Other Apps to Your Share Menus

  1. Open the app that you want to share from. In this case, I'm using the Photos app.
  2. Select any image or video.
  3. Tap the Share icon to open the Share menu.


     
  4. Scroll list of apps to the left.
  5. Tap the More icon.


     
  6. Tap Edit.


     
  7. Locate the app you want to add and tap the green circle on the left. In this case I'm enabling the Messenger app.
  8. Make sure the switch to the right is toggled on.


     
  9. Now the app is added to your Favorites list at the top. 
  10. Place your finger on the three bars to drag the app into your preferred position, then release.
  11. When you're finished, tap Done.

Now, whenever you open your Share menu, the app that you added will be right there for you to quickly share your important image, article, or adorable cat video.
