How to Delete a Messenger Account on Android?

Facebook Messenger was a major Facebook initiative, to launch a brand-new application that is only used to share messages with friends on Facebook. However, it did not gain popularity, as the idea behind it did not make it attractive, because people have to download a different application to chat with their Facebook friends. As before, users scrolled through the feed and can chat along with it, but now they have to switch screens. Another factor is that every time a message arrives, a notification will appear on the screen of the phone which seems to be a distraction from work. As a result, many Facebook users wanted to know how to log out of Facebook on android or the process to delete a messenger account.
