    Would like to be able to easily see what time a message was sent/received/read from both/all people in the chat. Also says the other person is typing when they really aren't, even if they aren't active. Won't deliver my messages quickly, even when we're both on Wi-Fi. Seems to do that in the early morning after hours of inactivity. Even after hours of it sending, it won't deliver. Won't show last time someone was active if it's over 2 hours, or whenever it wants. Too easy to accidentally react to a message, a feature I never use and have to undo. Full Review

    Update boosted rating: it's been working great for awhile now! Dropped rating, keeps shutting down and won't stay open longer than it takes to connect! Please fix! I like it but many times the stickers are coming up blank on my side and can't view things people send, images, videos or links. Samsung S6 Edge Plus, Nougat 7.0 OS. Full Review

    All of the features work and it is perfect except for the fact that it literally will never notify me when I have a message. I have it setup so that notifications are on and that I have a notification tones set and it's set to vibrate and everything else, but it will never notify me of a new message. If I don't have the chat head on the screen, it won't pop up to tell me that I have any kind of message at all. If the notification feature doesn't work, the app is useless. So this app is useless.

    Has to be the worst messenger app on the market. I never get notifications when i have a message, i always have to open the app and then they appear. Also know a few other of people this happens to. Facebook workers themselves are awful, i have reported the problem twice and not heard a peep. Obviously dont care Full Review

    UPDATE... So then I reinstalled it but now I can't even use the thing. It won't let me type in the information that this nosy POS app wants. News flash! This app is a nosy POS that just does not even work, not to mention it takes up entirely too much space on my phone. Wastes my data allowance with ads posing as "messages.." NOT recommended!

    It takes longer to update this rubbish app than it does to do a complete system update. What are you installing on my phone? It will no longer work properly on anything with less than 3GB of RAM and even that is a struggle. One contact left to persuade to install Telegram then it will be goodbye to this worthless junk.

    Too good that there is a wave function in group chats. Too bad messenger randomly logs out and then asks my number to send confirmation code but doesn't send it to my phone. When i tryed to send it again messenger blocked me for i don't know how long. It doesn't tell me how many minutes/hours/days i am blocked. Full Review

    App doesn't work as it should. I receive messages ONLY when I open the app and it says "connected". When app is closed - there is no notifications whatsoever. Settings are on default. No power saving, battery optimising is off for this app. It it useless. Full Review

    Gor Zhamharyan Published date: January 19, 2018

    Previously the app was better. The last few weeks I started to miss the messages, because it disconnects and reconnects all the time from the network. Doesn't matter if I use Wi-Fi or 4G, I still miss the messages due to the constant reconnection. Full Review

If i want to make a group i click on the option not some stupid bubble. Worst update ever. Will give 5 stars once fixed, if not ill delete this app. Please fix Full Review

    Messenger still crashes when using the app and when trying to open the app from time to time. Also notification previews/pop up over display notifications/peek notifications are not turning off without disabling notifications on the app itself. I still want to hear the sound/vibrate but I don't need it to constantly pop up on my screen and disturb what I'm doing on screen. Full Review

    When scrolling on mobile emoticons pop up and are a damn nuisance. It is easy to accidentally click on an emoji when scrolling which then can not be removed. Get rid if this pronto. There are plenty of pther messaging apps to use instead. Full Review

    Love that it's just like Skype. Quick and easy access. But also the only thing I don't like is it can be glitchy. I have top speed internet and so does my mom and it still glitches to the point we have to hang up and retry. Not all the time but occasionally Full Review

    You removed the loudspeak button for calls, like what the hell? The app continously crashes too since your most recent updates, why try to update something that didn't need an update, you've broken and ruined the app. Full Review

    First of all, the fact that this app is mandatory is ridiculous. Second of all, there's really too much unnecessary information bring used, like call history and text messages? I didn't all for any of that, nor do I use it. I just wanted to be able to connect with Facebook friends, not have a new default messaging app. Google messages works outstanding for that.

    Robert Costa Published date: January 19, 2018

    I'm extremely 😒 with the unnecessary removal of the 'active' tab under the 'people' section. This is infuriating as it was the only way to accurately see who was active; going to the 'active' tab under the '🏡' section is very inaccurate, it shows people being active but when I click on them it often shows that they are inactive. This never happened when going to see who's active by going to the 'people's' tab. Full Review

    Forced to download. regardless, this is the worst messaging app ever. You need to be a child to use this app in any way, just ridiculous. It's not instant messaging if you have to enter the app and refresh. Full Review

    Chase Shields Published date: January 18, 2018

    Why is it that they're continuously making this great app worse? The daily bubble is annoying and uninteresting. Now they've added a group bubble that I will rarely use. Both bubbles are stuck and can't be removed like chat bubbles can be. This just makes it in the way of talking privately with more than 2 people at a time. Full Review

    Good app, doesn't seem to be a big battery drain for me but it is a large app file. Can't seem to turn off message popups which are annoying, I'd prefer at least an option to just keep it to the symbol on status bar. Full Review

    Mátyás Sipos Published date: January 18, 2018

    For the latest version - 2018.01.17 The new (+) button on the right of chat heads. Perfectly useless, it does exatly the same as the messenger button left of the heads (well, it does less, actually). No need for it. Yet, it takes up one more place, now, I can only open 2 heads at a time, even 3 was too few, after the "my day" bubble became permanent. It could totally disappear after I watched all of them. Or at least give an option to hide it... Why? Why overcomplicate something, that was perfectly simple??? Full Review

    Michelle Johnston Published date: January 18, 2018

    A think it is shocking for an application as not all messages get through not only that cuts out on calls to and video calls when you are trying to get your messages through they never get through due to you have to wait for the tick to go dark blue and takes it time when it always goes straight through they need to sort it out as it is becoming a joke now Full Review

    I have to constantly keep deleting apps on my phone just to install this and other apps. I hate that everything has an app that you have to download and the phones don't have much memory. I also really hate that Facebook MAKES it so that you have to get this app or else you can't read your messages! Full Review
