Hi @ireneseattle,


I am afraid currently this is not achieveable through the Facebook cocnnection in PowerApps.

Under PowerApps, the Facebook conneciton only have the function related with My Timeline or posts:


For Microsoft Flow, also the Facebook conneciton is not available.

But you may take a look at the HTTP webhooks, which we could take use to get the messages:

Using webhooks with Microsoft Flow

For facebook webhook, see:

Sorry to say that currently I am not familiar with that part, the proper idea I could think out is the following:

Use webhooks to check message received, then add condition to verify the special restriction, then take use of send notification.

Besides, would it be more convenient to install a Messenger Mobile App?

Hi Michael,

Many thanks for getting back! Unfortunately the FB messenger app is no longer supported by my windows 8.1 phone, and I have to use web browser on my phone to access my FB messages. It's a hassle and that's why I was hoping for a miracle app somewhere...The penalty I have to pay for clinging on to my obslete windows phone 😞
