Lumia 640 does not support the minimum requirements for Continuum. The processor of Lumia 640 is an old chipshet. It does not require a phone that came preinstalled with the Windows 10 Mobile as said by @kelvinelove. Continuum was even demonstrated in a low end phone by a hacker. I don't have that link now. However the performance was terible. There is a ...

The Facebook Messenger app on the phone is very unstable, sad to say. I've had the behavior you describe a few times before on my Lumia 950 XL, and it sucks. It seems to take longer to happen if I always close the app (press-and-hold on Back and then swipe the app to the bottom of the screen to shut it down) than if you just leave it suspended in the ...

Toggle the repeat icon to your desired preference. If you want it to repeat a playlist or all songs, touch it once and it should highlight that its active.
