    When you type the phrase "red fox" into the gif search, it populates a pornographic scene. I have my child sitting beside and even if she was not THAT IS HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE. Im not happy about this. Work on some type of filter for adult content on here. Full Review

    As of 24 Sep '17 they've introduced ads directly in my inbox. I'll be reporting ALL ads indiscriminately, AND switching to Signal, AND getting as many of my friends to switch to Signal as I can. Great job, Facebook. Can no longer tap and hold down on pictures or stickers to select Details and see when they were sent. Timestamps are an extremely basic feature of any messaging platform. Also, I use Messenger for MESSAGING. Sharing snapshots of my "Day" is what Instagram and Snapchat are for, and since Facebook owns Instagram how about you focus on keeping Messenger Messenger and Instagram Instagram. Full Review

    I've got a Droid Maxx 2. In my opinion with what I've experienced is the message request. My calls never go any further then being able to answer before the call is dropped. No matter if I'm connected to WiFi or running off data. To top it off now I see my text messages with my Facebook messages. Its also has to many permission. I'm really concerning deleting this app and will when I find a better one that will work correctly all the time no matter if on data or WiFi. Full Review

    Good, but the thing that needs to be fixed is: someone sends me a message when my tablet is off. When I turn it back on, I'll check messages and there will be no new messages. Then, several hours later the message the person sent me will suddenly pop up. Eg: Want to go to the beach this morning? No, because now its 10pm and I only just got the message. Full Review

    I love a lot about facebook messenger, such as the ease of use and the overlay with chat making it easy to chat and continue with your work. Im rating 1 star because every time anyone I know with an android phone uploads a video to chat, it sounds distorted and underwater. Seems to have no issue on apple phones. This issue has been ongoing for at least 6 months and its honestly just lazy that no fix has been done yet. Please resolve this asap! Full Review

    It keeps on getting lag or bugg. Can you please give as option if we want to use an old version of messenger? And can you please have an option as well if we want to install the old version of FB!? You dont have any option as well if we want to recover spam mesaages like what happened to our conversation of my friend. I have accidentally clicked the spam message and i want to save our conversation. Please help. Full Review

    It is Excellent but one thing must be created. If somebody mistakely sends a message to someone else but later he knows that it was wrong receiver. Then he ir she wants to correct, modify or delete it. At that time he should have rights to delete, modify or correct the message from the message box. Please submit the option as soon as fast. Thank you! Full Review

    After latest Android update on LG V20, this app keeps "minimizing" in the middle of me reading and/or typing messages. With the chat head open, I go into a message to read/reply and it will randomly close that window. I have to hit the chat head again to open and continue where I left off. Very annoying and considering uninstalling if this continues. Full Review

    So I used to love this app. Recently though, it's been freezing and not able to send texts. Takes multiple rests for it to work only to send one text and it freezes up again. It doesn't happen all the time but maybe 2-3 times a day. It also has an issue with group texts. It shows that the individual sent a mms text and needs to download. Takes multiple times to download before finally working. Annoying. Full Review

    If a person uses both mesenger and mms they don't become 1. They should it's confusing for some and its a pain in the rumpkis . 2 reasons. ... 1- messages keep being sent to both and as a result messages are over looked , unknown or lost. 2- it's time consuming and confusing to make either or #1 choice of messaging. Other than that I LOVE IT! MY STICKERS MY GIFS MY FRIENDS MY PLEASURE Full Review

    You forced me to update and now if I don't allow messenger to have access to my camera I cannot talk/text into it. And not to mention I can only see about 3 lines of a message while I'm typing, I have to click the back button and then click on the message in order to see what I've typed. These updates are getting worse, stop messing what was NOT broken, please! Its terrible!! Full Review

    Hate it! Wants too many permissions for too many things. To use this you pretty much have to sign over all your privacy to them. I thought FB was bad, but this is out of hand. Recording phone calls, turning on camera and microphone plus trying to access every file on my phone. I don't think so. Uninstalling today! They act like the government with the information they want. GARBAGE! Full Review

    I don't like being forced to download a second app to message someone. I don't do it often and yet I am having to download messenger just to message someone. As you can obviously tell, this is the only time I have had to download it in the time it has been out so it is ridiculous that i have to waste the space on my phone to do so for a ten minute conversation. Thanks for wasting my space on my phone ! Full Review

    I like this app alot but recently it started to lag, the calls have weird sound, also another problem is that when I am using this app I cannot tap on a sent message and see "seen at so and so" or the time it was sent. I tried reinstalling but i still have this prob and its not on my phone only.

    When are you ever going to add SINGLE parent emojis with 1 and 2 children huh? It's sad to say but there is prob more single parents then cpls. Come on now do NOT discriminate! Also, add the capability to access the flash on our phone when taking a pic and you'll get 5 stars from me! Full Review

    Like others have said. Stop changing what doesn't need to be fixed. The amount of things you keep adding is getting ridiculous. Also that time stamp of when messages were sent become crucial in some circumstances and it's nice to be able to click on it and see the time the msg was actually sent vs seen. And not see emojis pop up! Bring it back please! Full Review

    Worked fine until a couple of months ago. Now every time i send a video to family there are issues with audio and it sounds like I'm underwater. Have reported to Facebook with no response so am now using a different app to communicate with family overseas and intestate. Messaging and calls are fine, the only issue occurs trying to send my videos. Shame. Full Review

    I'm not having any message delivery problems or delayed receipts like other users. However, the "typing" bubble appears even when the other person is not actually typing causing lag and confusion in the conversation. Also, the feature to see the time stamps of when messages were sent (moreso than read) is important and should be added back. Full Review

    Urban Aesthetics Published date: September 22, 2017

    I don't know why this app annoys me so much. Maybe because of the annoying "Waves". Maybe because someone's face will pop up while I am trying to do something on my phone. Maybe because its attached to Facebook and you are forced to have both apps to use it. Maybe because it does EXACTLY what other apps do but not as well. Full Review

    Continously tries to hijack all the other messaging on my phone. The way messages or organised is unnecessarily complicated. Will not allow you to send FB messages to people who do not have messenger. Doesn't want to install and can cause problems with anti-virus software/malware protection. Doesn't allow you to forward certain things on your timeline if they're forwarded via messenger. Full Review

    This used to be ok, yet more proof FB is up its own AR55. App too big and using way too much memory, and now with every update it gets worse. Cannot tap on users icons to see who the message has been read by. Only installed to stay in touch. WhatsApp is much, much better. Full Review

    1. Link from Facebook profile doesn't open new message. 2. When sharing videos from within Facebook, the original source is not linked. 3. Non customizable and non removable 'add to your day' view, it clutters the app. 4.Please enable a search within the history of a conversation, like you have in Whatsapp. 5. Notification when new friend added is cluttering the app, blocking the view of real messages. 6. User is forced to use the Messenger app to read messages instead of from within the Facebook app. In short - the settings are extremely non customizable. Full Review

    The app is pretty good. It's well organized and works pretty smoothly. I'm glad you can put it in your SD card, if you don't have it pre-installed in your phone. Customizable, too. Only apparent flaw is the poor camera quality. It doesn't receive light as well as the phone's camera. Full Review

    Been using this since forever. Some glitches though: sometimes my chats will automatically scroll back to the bottom when I stop scrolling. Sometimes, the text box won't be selected when I wake my phone up from sleep. Sometimes, when press send, the message won't show up (but shows up as normal to recipients and my other devices).

    1. Add a search button like WhatsApp in the chat 2. Time stamp for every text was present before the update and now I cannot see when the messages were arrived. 3. Which I click on the ACTIVE tab to turn the chat off it says loading contacts forever and I am not able to turn the chat off. Very frustrating Full Review
