Descriptions


Instantly reach the people in your life—for free. Messenger is just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).

Not just for Facebook friends: Message people in your phone book and just enter a phone number to add a new contact.

Group chats: Create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place.

Photos and videos: Shoot videos and snap selfies or other photos right from the app and send them with one tap.

Chat heads: Keep the conversation going while you use other apps.

Free calls: Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries. (Calls are free over Wi-Fi. Otherwise, standard data charges apply.)

Even more ways to message:
Bring your conversations to life with stickers.
Preview your gallery photos and videos without leaving the conversation--then choose the perfect ones to send.
Record voice messages when you have more to say.

Extra features:
Know when people have seen your messages.
Forward messages or photos to people who weren't in the conversation.
Search for people and groups to quickly get back to them.
Turn on location to let people know when you're nearby.
See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook.
Create shortcuts to get to any conversation right from your home screen.
Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break.
Stay logged in so you never miss a message.

    I have had issues since the last update. Along with Facebook app it keeps logging me out making me verify who I am and stating "session expired" at 1st I just kept logging in. Then I couldn't get into either. So I uninstalled and re installed. Now... messenger does not work. Installs. Starts up.... and just sits there with the fairly blue circle. For hours. Then claims there is no network. Messenger is the only way I connect with some people so I kind of need this! What's the problem and how are u going to fix this? Full Review

    I absolutely love this app for voice calling my boyfriend over night. The connection is very reliable and we use it every night. The only thing I think that could make this app 100% perfect for me and my boyfriend would be the ability to set a time on how long calls can last as we use this mainly to be on the phone over night but have then found if neither of us have hung up by the morning, our crucial alarms are silenced and our early morning has been sacrificed and we are made late to college. Other than that, love it!! Full Review

    Why isn't there a feature to deactivate my day? It's annoying and keeps popping up. Why have you changed the layout of contacts when i want to share a link or picture? I don't want my top contacts list. Why can't I send pictures i snap? I have to download them and send them via tge album. This app is garbage. Full Review

    Sooo many bugs. When I take a picture from the in-app camera it won't send no matter how many times I press it, I have to save it then send it. The app lags and is almost unusable with a watch. I know it just isn't the app, it's Facebook in general. The site freezes on my PC when no other website does and I have to force close and reopen. You would think with how frequently FB updates their app and how much money they have that they wouldn't have so many issues with their site and app. Full Review

    There are some bugs. Recently the messages come after several hours, many functions, like viewing a photo sent or trying to report a problem get stuck on infinite loading. This started happening recently though, and the app before was working quite well. The message delay is a really severe issue though, so I hope it gets fixed soon. Otherwise I see no point in having the app. The extensions are great, but if the major functions stop working, it doesn't matter what embellishements there are. I hope Facebook realizes that peak performance in instant messaging is the purpose of the app, and bugs in that are not acceptable. Full Review

    I gave four stars due to the fact that I'm in Michigan and my Girlfriend is in Texas, and the texts are always glitching, because this app doesn't account for timezones. So she just went inactive, and seeing as how I'm an hour ahead of her, it says she was last active an hour ago. It's annoying as hell. Usually would've rated five though. Full Review

    Since messenger is such a necessary applicatio for facebook, you should make it use as less power as possible. It's not about battery but for the device being overheated after 10 minutes of use. Make it simpler. Place an option for people who wouldn't like to see the "My day" feauture. Full Review

    For the past couple days, the app has constantly crashed. Every time I attempt to open it, it says there is an error and forces me to reload it over again. It wouldn't be a big problem if it didn't happen at least 20 times a day (that's how often I use it). I have sent feedback already, but nothing has been fixed. Full Review

    Still the worst IM app between Signal, Allo, WhatsApp, and Voxer. I despise the screen real estate stealing Messenger Day. I don't need friend suggestions or to know if they're online. I don't need the log-in notification when wifi routers require a log-in. The OS already does this. I get new message notifications from active chats. This app is a mess. Full Review

    Muse Master Published date: June 26, 2017

    Decent app. My issues are with being unable to block someone across Facebook through the messenger, not receiving the "pending messages" from non-Friends, and the way I'm bullied into using the Messenger app anytime I want to send messages on the browser Facebook site. Said bullying and inconveniences and laggy video chats aside, this App does everything it says it does, and has served me well over the years. :) Full Review

    I'm a fan :-) but, I recently had to reinstall the app after reactivating my Facebook account (some options didn't return upon coming back to FB). I didn't mind having to do that...but now the ringtones/notifications I've downloaded aren't available for use. They are still stored in my phone but I'm unable to choose them in messenger. *If anyone else can help it would be much appreciated 😊 Full Review

    In my opinion this app is Facebook's worst move. I despise this app and miss the days when messaging was just a part of the Facebook app. I occasionally install this so I can clear the ridiculous notifications in the Facebook app and then uninstall as I get frustrated by the inability too completely disable so it won't bug me.

    Extremely glitchy. They keep trying to develope in flashy features and copy other successful apps, but basic functions are broken and have been for months. I've left feedback and reinstalled, this app just continues to suck. If all that's wrong were fixed this would be a five star app. Full Review

    Hello I really like this app but there is strange activities on my friends messages to me, they would ask me if I'm intrested in the federal grants? and when I call and ask my friends if they sent the message to me they have no idea how that happened and know nothing about a federal grant. Its not new friends, these hackers are really going into my friends account and sending people these "federal grant offer scams" through my friends old messages to me. Anwsers? Full Review

    I believe it is rather invasive that a separate app is required for a function that used to be browser friendly to require an additional installation to essentially get a text. Sad Facebook, just sad. Are all the background data files really worth it. No I AM SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN A NONGENERIC RESPONSE. That's all. Full Review

    In your latest update you removed the ability to send drop box files. Add it back in. I don't know why you would remove features from your app. I don't know how many people send money to each other but I feel like it's a lot less than the amount of people like me that send stuff over Dropbox Full Review
