Messenger Comments & Reviews 2022

- Issues

Soo I’m having crashing due to the update software on the IPhone. The ios15.2 version has not been well wit this messenger. Soo for days now I have been un installing /installing the app more than 7-8 times due to it locking up My phone. Just as of today (CHRISTMAS DAY) I am thinking that I might be banned or blocked from downloading the messenger due to many un-installs and re install attempts. Every time I click on the download button , it prompts me to a verification page. I had put in my password and it takes me to the “INFO /encryption “ page. Now I thought messenger is free Soo why am I being asked for credit card info and ran back to a circle of having to keep entering my password just to try to get through? Anyways, I still can’t download Messenger and the Verification page pops up every time I try, so how can I resolve this and did this restriction happen due to me UN-installing/Re installing too many times!???

- Video length is too short

I have friends that talk through videos when I’m not available, instead of audio only or typing. And I will get 10-20+ videos at a time from one person. Please upgrade the app to make videos 3 minutes max, instead of 20 seconds. It would make things so much better. I know I’m just one person. But maybe look at your data to see how many people use the video message function and if they are sending multiple at a time as well. Please and thank you. Edit. Also, maybe add a highlight to videos already viewed by me on my side. If I start watching them and that friend texts or sends a new video, the entire conversation jumps to the bottom and I lose my place. And trying to figure out where I left off in 20+ 20 second videos is a hassle; 40+ today(all at once). Like a yellow outline around the seen videos and blue around the ones I haven’t viewed yet. Something like that, that’s colorblind friendly lol. No purples and blues or greens and reds together, cuz they will blend and I and others like me wont be able to tell which is which 😂. Thank you

- Completely Unnecessary and terrible

So to begin. The existence of Facebook messenger is absolutely unnecessary. There is already the Facebook app and I don’t see what the point is in having to switch to a different app just to see your messages. But also if you’re going to force me to use this app to see my messages from another app might as well make it work. For about a month now I’ve been stuck signed in to one of my pages. I can’t read any messages on my personal or any of my other business pages. So I deleted it and re-downloaded it. And now, it won’t let me sign in. I have tried signing in all day today and yesterday and it constantly gives me “ error your request cannot be completed at this time please try again later.” This is absolutely terrible. Get this thing fixed. I wish I could have the option to just use Messenger in the Facebook app. But since Zuck doesn’t want that I guess I don’t get it. If my businesses didn’t rely on it I would leave Facebook all together because of this. In summation, the app is terrible doesn’t work and I shouldn’t even need it in the first place.

- Staple features removed and NOW breaking bugs

Honestly a lot of the features being removed I get. Especially with the app being rebuilt from the ground up. Within the last day or so going into any conversation *instead of just one from a recent bug report* I will be kicked out back to the conversation selection screen with the animation like I swiped to go back there myself but I didn’t. And even if I’m in the middle of typing it can happen to. On top of whatever was being typed being gone when *trying* to go back to the conversation. Also when it force backs you out some reason all the conversations flash out of existence for a few seconds. I was going to say maybe it was just my phone. I restarted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled and even cleared app data to no avail. But it also happens on my IPhone SE which is on the latest 13.4.1 update like my 11 Pro max right now. So I pretty much can’t reliably use messenger now on any of my phones and have to go to a laptop. I’m also very confused as to the fact this just started happening today. And not the day of the update 🤔

- New update is total garbage

They have changed a few things on this latest update and it feels like a step backwards in my opinion. First off... when my friends and I share location you can no longer see the their location without having to click on the map, then zooming in a lot farther than you ever should have to. And most of the time that location is not even correct. Secondly you can no longer see if the other person has seen your message without opening conversation (which was very useful). Also the new emojis for reacting to pictures are not good and they need to be changed back to the ones prior to the update. In the previous version you could click on stickers that were sent to you and the pack that it came from would show up and you could use them if you wanted to... now you can still click on them but all it does is show you the pack and you cannot use them. You have to go back to stickers and find that pack to use them. This new update is not at all user friendly and Facebook needs to go back to previous version.

- Can’t Login

For the past month, I haven’t been able to log into my account on Messenger. I’ve reported the problem twice through Facebook with no feedback. When I try to login, it says, “Unable to login. Please try again later.” I’ve tried using “Forgot Password,” but it glitches and won’t let me continue. I have tried every login and password combination I have had in the past as well as what the current login should be and can’t get in! When I use Facebook through my Chromebook I can view messages that way, but it’s very inconvenient since my laptop is outdated and barely functions. Nothing looks suspicious, so I don’t believe my account has been compromised. I also can’t view messages through a mobile browser as it just directs me back to the login screen for the app. I need to be able to get in through my phone, but no word back from the Facebook team. I’ve updated regularly, and checked the FAQs which don’t provide any useful info. I hope the Facebook team will look into this, otherwise I’ll have to drop Messenger, which I really don’t want to do.

- I can no longer log in!

Recently(yesterday) I was logged out of my messenger since the update happened. I was unable to log into my facebook account nor was I able to “forget password” and change my password to see if that was the issue. I uninstalled and reinstalled the application and it still gives me the same issue. I’ve have messenger for years now but I’ve never experienced any issues up until this point. I’ve tried logging on with wifi and data separately but the issue stays the same; It will not allow me to log into my facebook messenger account. NOTE: I’m able to use my facebook account on the facebook application just fine, so its not my account that is the issue but the log in screen or app itself. Please respond to my issue ASAP as I get important messages from family members such as emergencies or events taking place via messenger.

- Why update it to make it worse?

Why did you have to update messenger, remove cool feature like popping emojis in chat, add a really cool feature imo: the ability to spam emojis in chat, and then remove the spamming again? Why are you adding features to then later remove them and why did you remove old features? Please bring back the ability to check if someone has seen your message without having to enter in the chat and #bringbackoldmessenger ;( Update: Now, after a few more updates, it got a lot worse. If I try to send more than 10 pictures at a time, it doesn’t work. Like it straight up doesn’t send the pictures. If I want to look at pictures within a chat, they don’t load unless I wait for like an hour. You still can’t fast forward within a voice recording and to select a different album than just “recents” when sending photos and videos is a pain and it’s better to do it off of the gallery app. Also none of these problems are because my phone is slow or because of bad internet, I have an iPhone X with 100mb/s down/up wi-fi.

- This app is an absolute joke

What a dumpster fire of an app. I’ve always had problems with messenger, but they’ve often been minor and have sometimes been resolved. It’s ridiculous how long it took to get more (but still not all) emojis available as emoji buttons for chats, but they eventually added this inconsequential feature. It would be nice if they expanded the color/theme options, but I can live without that. Recently, though, things have just gotten worse. The removal of polls in group chats is ridiculous. There’s no reason for such a feature to be taken away. Facebook has been “working to add them back” for months now. Additionally, my main issue with the app is that I’m now completely unable to make new group messages. This has happened once before, and I had to delete and reinstall the app to fix the problem. I should never have to do that, but at least it worked. The problem has resurfaced now, though, and even deleting and reinstalling hasn’t solved the problem. I guess the app is just permanently broken for me? Good on you, Facebook. What a waste.

- Absolute garbage

Politicized and only supports their own benefits by stealing our info for free and selling it for millions. They restrict you for speaking what you believe and force you to see what you don’t believe and what you’re not interested in. Their what’s so called community guidelines are generic, and kindergarten level. You won’t be able to say a swear word even in a closed group as a fricking joke. So be formal cuz that’s what the alien wants you to be. If you wanna restrict specific people from accessing certain content, why don’t you add a pop-up consent for 18+ content, sensitive imagery/ text, etc? Last but not least, the most recent ban for Palestine supporters and the obvious support to the Zionist occupation is just so full of it! We know that the alien is a huge supporter of these oppressors but these are own personal accounts and you make money from our use of it, you don’t get to dictate to us what we should say or believe! I really hate that many things are now attached to this app but sooner or later, with the technological growth, there will be a better and more convenient fair options!

- Please Do This !!!!!

I’m not trying to write a bad review or anything but... Can y’all update this app by telling us our emails in the settings. Because had an Messenger account and then I had forgot the password word. Then, I had to make a new one but I couldn’t use my regular phone email so I had to come up with another one because it was an account (my old account) that was already use. But now I had my Phone number changed and now I can’t log into my account. Because my account is not set up on this phone number but on my old one. SO CAN Y’ALL ALSO let us have an option to change our phone number on there ??? And I don’t have Facebook account I only have an Messenger so I can’t log in with the Facebook login. Thank you for reading. 🙏🏾 || MINUTES LATER: just found out u can’t have Messenger with an Facebook account so bye Messenger had a good time with u but bye.

- Facebook needs to redesign all of its messaging apps

I honestly can’t understand how they allow so many bugs and glitches in this app to go on and on forever. For starters, if you accidentally add a theme and emoji to a group chat, everyone gets notified. But then you can’t remove themes. You can only CHANGE to another theme. Who programmed this app? Seriously? Why can’t you remove themes completely? Please explain the reasoning. And hyperlink previews often don’t work. Sometimes they do. But not always, and it seems to be tied to themes. Group chats with themes tend to have this bug. And when you UNSEND a message, they feel the need to alert everyone about it. Why?? So annoying. Sometimes you message the wrong person/group. It happens. It should allow a clean unsend like Instagram messanger. With no trace or alerts. Facebook needs to sit down with Instagram and WhatsApp and go over the BEST and WORST features of each app and make ONE that works across ALL platforms. For example, allow LIKES in WhatsApp. Allow unsend without alerting everyone. Allow hyperlink previews. Alow GIFS to play (Gifs do not play in Instagram, but they do in WhatsApp & FB). This is a typical problem in the modern era. No broad level quality control. It’s whack-a-mole programming and new platform aquisition by everyone. And the unbelievable ad targeting you get due to bots constantly reading your messages. Wow. No privacy whatsoever. We need a change. Otherwise, the app works nicely.

- Harassing Phone Calls Through Messanger App

This app is very intrusive! There is no way to disable the constant phone calls you guys allow anyone on your friends list to send. I went online to find a way to disable the phone calls coming directly from Messanger and found out you can only disable if you deny access to camera, microphone and phone. This makes no logical sense. In real life people need your permission to call you. You actually have to give someone your number to call you. There are a lot of weirdos using this app. There are many scam artists using this app. Nobody should be receiving calls through this app all day and night. Why isn’t there an option to disable the phone calls?! It makes you want to uninstall this entire app because it’s too intrusive. I have done everything I can do and yet these people keep calling my phone through this app. It’s irritating and shouldn’t be allowed as it’s harassing when someone doesn’t desire people to keep calling them. Fix this expeditiously please and thank you. It’s too much

- Some of the latest features missing

Did the developers just give up on this app for iPad or something? I see that the latest update was two weeks ago, and usually Facebook likes to update all of their apps every two days 🤨 While the app *is* functional, it lacks some of the updated features that are all available on the iPhone app and mostly available via the direct website — such as FB avatars stickers and the like (i do appreciate the extra choices for emoji reacts, tho’; i just wish there were more heart options with that). My iPad is on the latest OS (iPadOS 14) and is an iPad Air 2...this latest update of Facebook Messenger is an incomplete version of the latest update for its version on iPhone 😐 would be nice to access ALL of the latest features on this app for iPad, since there’s more space on my iPad than on on my iPhone to support it. Hopefully, y’all will come back with a new update of ALL the latest features soon...

- You missed it up again, way to go

I am becoming more and more disappointed with messenger, not only did you do away with the sticker blow ups, you also did away with the icons on the the picture edit. I used to be able to use the kiss lips to kiss my wife and my daughter goodnight as we a far apart and I like for them to know I am kissing goodnight, yes corny I know but it is something we found that helps us. But now in order for me to even do that once I have to use the text and use only one and it takes time to do that so all I can get is one because she is wanting to sleep. Also the lack in the chat itself has got slower and slower. Not to mention the video chat is really bad. And can not hold a connection. It seems that all you are doing is trying to cater to the adware and businesses and not to the actual people that really use it to stay in touch with there loved ones. Bring back the features please and stop with all the adware and sponsors. I am sure most are like me if they want to find a product then they go to the website itself. I don’t need to use you for that. Very very disappointed Facebook and Messenger August 12, 2020 Once again when you are going good you start to tinker with the app and screw things up, You have got it now to where it slow again and not respond. Just a month ago it was actually work fairly good but not now. Please address the lack time and loading issues. Thank you..

- what happened???

I use messenger all the time, daily, multiple times a day, never really had problems with it that I’d noticed. when I went to sleep last night everything was fine... when I woke up this morning and clicked on my messages through the facebook app, it took me to the messenger log in screen. weird. I didnt log out. so it asked me if I wanted to ‘continue as _________(my name)” I clicked on it and it said “we could not log you in at this time” took me to a login screen to put in my email and password, did that, and got the same message.. “we could not log you in, please try again later.” well I need this app to work. the way it is supposed to. this is installed on my iPad no part of the app will work. I have tried uninstalling, turning my device off and on, with it installed and without it. nothing will work. I want to continue to talk to my friends during this quarantine time and you just cut off my way of communicating with people... please fix immediately

- Worst Service I Have Ever Seen

I have never been more disappointed. I am a big Facebook Marketplace person and sell things all the time but I have had ONE CONSISTENT UNRESOLVED PROBLEM. Messenger will NOT send me notifications when someone messages me through marketplace! If a friend messages me it comes through just fine but if it comes through marketplace there is no notification whatsoever. I have done my own trouble shooting, being a very tech literate person, and have tried multiple devices including my new iPhone Xs. I have checked settings, redownloaded the app, reset my phone, AND REPORTED the PROBLEM to Facebook 3-4 times now with NO RESPONSE whatsoever. I have missed important messages and sales because of this. I have done my own research to find that others ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM with also no response from facebook. I’m a patient person and don’t like leaving bad reviews but I have been dealing with this problem for a LONG time now. At least other places respond to you problems even if they can’t fix them. I am severely disappointed Facebook.

- Bugs in the system

Right now I am currently not thrilled with the messenger application I use in order to be able to communicate with family and friends due to the fact that I have family all over the entire world and friends as well. The same day that I sent messages out to several my friends and they replied back to me was when I noticed that there was an issue. I tried to send a message back to my friends and family and I could not do so. I got this little red circle on the right side of the message that says couldn’t send. Then I also was able to figure out I was not receiving messages anymore however I could make and receive video calls. Currently at this moment I am able to receive messages but I am still unable to send written messages or emoji‘s and I cannot do a verbal message either. Facebook has been notified two times and I’m still not getting anything done regarding my issue. Dear Facebook I hope you see my comment and get on the ball and do something to fix my account. Have a good day.

- What happened?

I no longer receive Messenger alerts or messages from FB marketplace replies; that used to automatically go to the Messenger chat for privacy, vs through FB. There have been no settings changes, as all my apps are automatically updated however I have gone into all relevant Apps, made sure all is as should be. Nothing had been altered. A reply now shows up in my emails, naming the person replying that I’m supposed to be in conversation with via Marketplace. It takes me to “open in Messenger”, then “Would you like to open in Messenger”, then to the Messenger App Store, which then when opened, takes me back into Messenger that again shows no Marketplace message. A total futile cycle. All messages through my contacts are fine, and as I’ve said, all my Messenger settings are in tact, as I went through everything in detail. There are no issues at all with FB or my emails. I have no idea what has changed, but it is very frustrating, as I use FB Marketplace frequently. Whether I’m the seller or the buyer, it is not a good reflection on me.

- Worked well until a few weeks ago…

UPDATE: Found out through digging online that an app called “Lockdown” was blocking me from being able to log in. Turned it off for a moment and it let me log in. Leaving this here in case someone is having the same issue. This app worked well for the several years that I’ve had it and used it. A few weeks ago I got a flood of notifications for one message my friend sent, so I deleted and reinstalled the app to try again. Now it won’t even let me log in and has an error message that pops up. I saw several other people had this issue, so I thought it would be fixed fairly quickly. I used the web version to access messenger… well now they’re phasing that out and it’s no longer possible to look at messenger without the app… that I can’t log into.

- Very poor job with this one.

Just the fact that you force me to download a separate app, in order to message people on Facebook, is ridiculous. There is no reason for you to have taken away our ability to message people in the regular Facebook app. This is just a pathetic ploy to gain more downloads of Facebook branded apps, and make your numbers look better. But to add to it, the app hardly works half the time. Messages always "send" but rarely "deliver". What is even the point in having it be two steps. No other message app has send and deliver as two separate functions. It should be sent and delivered at the same time. Tell me how instant messaging worked fine in the 90's, but you can't get it to work now. And what exactly are you "updating" every week. Constantly getting updates yet nothing ever seems to be actually fixed. *new complaint* STOP ASKING FOR MY PHONE NUMBER!!!! Every time I sign in, it asks for my phone number. I’ve put it in at least 25 times, and it still just keeps asking for it. This has to STOP!

- New update looks really bad

Most of the people I’ve seen have just been complaining so I’m going to try and make this review at least a little helpful. This new update has so much wasted space. Just yesterday the formatting was pretty much perfect from a design standpoint, but now there is so much unused white space at the top of the screen. Even just the word “Chats” takes up so much unnecessary space which previously encompassed everything that wasn’t actual chats (like stories and your profile info. The previous design was perfectly fine and there was no need to change it, and changing your design completely won’t make a significant number of people suddenly decide to download the app. If nothing else, give everyone the option to go back to the previous version. As a lover of web design, I know white space can be useful, but it can be extremely harmful if there is too much unused space, and that is exactly what happened. You messed up with this one, but there’s still an opportunity to fix it, or at least canter to those who know this is bad design.

- New updates seem like downgrades

I’m not sure if these are happening while Messenger is between updates, but I prefer the “heart eyes” react to the new “heart symbol” react. Also, chat emojis can no longer be held down to get their two larger sizes? I hope this is something that returns soon, because all my friends and I have been really disappointed to lose this. I also noticed that now when I click on someone in a group chat, I don’t have the option to send them a direct message. I can go to their profile and message them or I can just go search their name and message them, but I liked the see less transition from before. I still prefer FB messenger to some other meds engine apps, though. Please always keep the fun char colors, chat emojis, and multiple react options. It’s fun and adds visual variety to chats with different people/different groups, and it’s a cool way to personalize different relationships.

- Update please fix!

I love messenger and how you can connect with your friends and family etc. However I’m not too fond with this new update because it’s easier to tell if someone has read your message by seeing their bubble next to your message, unfortunately that feature is removed :(. I also miss whenever I would go to look at pictures it was easier just to scroll down and see the pictures exchanged instead of going through the option “View Photos & Videos” it just looks kinda bland. Last but not least please change it back or at least improve it 😁 including the “search messages option” like make it to where we can the dates these messages were sent so there would be no confusion. Thanks! Update: Please bring back the old features such as reminders and pills and the fun blow up emojis, the games and things that would make it look fun not bland!

- Pointless

Facebooks messenger app is a pointless application—everyone already has free text messaging and pays for cell phone service, so why create a new application (for things like virtual yard sale) and ask for permissions to text and call? I find it absolutely absurd that I have to download an app to view messages from a web based platform. (No I DO NOT have the FB app, thank you.). Not only that but the two rarely communicate efficiently. After you check messages in the app, FB profile will still show a messages notification. On top of that every time you use it asks for notifications to be turned on (why? When FB should be notifying you?) and asking for permission for microphone and camera. The app drains battery power when you do have notifications turned on especially in group chats—pinging every time there is a new comment. I’m not sure what a good use for this app is—it should be reintegrated back into Facebook and allow users to check messages from the web based platform.

- Notification alarm

Good app, let’s me keep in contact with others. Initially I deactivated Facebook when I was in school, but was allowed to use messenger still. After a while for some reason that stopped being the case and it deactivated messenger too. Well, that wasn’t an option because I have a family chat on there and otherwise I would have been out of the loop. Minor issue, done with school now so not as big of a problem, until I return for degree number two. Video quality could be a bit better too. Also, my dog absolutely HATES the message notification. He will run away when he hears it. I would prefer a list of audible options for the sake of my dogs ears, and me being upset when he leaves due to a message coming through. Minor detail, but it makes me want to get rid of the app all together.

- Bad new update

This new update changes how video calls look when you don't have them fullscreen. This just used to be a smaller version of the fullscreen view, but now it gives equal size to you and the person you're calling. This also makes it so that you can only see a square of what you are showing your friend, and you can only see a square of what your friend is showing you, which is very annoying. You can't see as much as you can in fullscreen (the old non-fullscreen version still allowed you to see everything). Also, when you send hearts in Messenger, you used to be able to grab and pull the little hearts that float up, but now you can't do that. This is a small thing, but it was something that my boyfriend and I really enjoyed about the app, and I am very sad that this feature is gone. Also, a long time ago on the iOS version, most of the Emojis had a messenger version (which I much prefer to Apple's styles). I don't know why these designs went away on iOS, but I want them back.

- What if...

What if the facebook account gets hack and then you can’t also return or log in to the messenger which the account from facebook? Still not secured here. I hope that problem fix, waiting for the day it changes. My relatives just get hack a week ago, they thought it’s fine because they don’t addicted to facebook much. Then they realized that there are dozen of images they took before for memories, thousands of messages who encourage them come through the dark storm had been deleted because of the hackers with no conscience. Anyways, I’m concerned for these related app. I’m giving 4 stars because I loved this app before, now it updated and somehow it disappointed me. And with the hope of bringing a better security for both apps, I remove 1 star. Please fix

- Not Horrible but Has Issues

Although I have connected with some amazing people through this app and love the fact that I can connect with people all over the world this app is not a dating app and people need to be respectful of that. I’m not on messenger to hook up with people and receive numerous messages and random calls from people during all times of the day and night. I do understand I can shut my phone off or use my sleep setting on my phone but have had a parent experiencing some health issues and don’t want to shut my phone down as I may need to take a call or message at anytime. The other thing I don’t like is that people know the second I connect to Facebook or messenger and become active on the sight. Sometimes I just jump on to check something out for business purposes and get bombarded with messages. It would be nice to have the ability to get online without the world knowing I’m there.

- Update is absolutely terrible

BRING BACK THE HEART EYES (😍) REACT. Will rate 5 stars if this change is made. Useful and fun features were unnecessarily removed for this new update. Reading other reviews, clearly nobody is happy with this change. This isn’t a matter of not wanting to see the app change and grow.. features I used every day are now gone for no reason. App features that need to come back immediately: -Timestamped read receipts (seems to be an inconsistent glitch) -The profile picture bubble indicating that your message was read without having to open the chat (also seems to be inconsistently not working) -Emoji reacts (the heart can stay, but the heart eyes need to come back) -Filters, stickers, and emojis on photos you edit within the app. And preferably ADD more stickers that can be placed on photos. The hats and mustaches and goofy eyes are fun! -Speaking of editing photos, options for editing text onto a photo were removed. Sometimes I want a background behind the text or to choose a different font, where did that go? I’m sure there’s more that I can’t think of at the moment as well. Read other reviews; there are many other complaints. I’m sure there was a reason for updating the app, but with so many people unhappy with useful features removed, there’s now more of a reason to bring those features back. Otherwise, many people will stop using the app. We want it to be fun, most people don’t use it for business!!

- Facebook messenger need to pickup the pace

Facebook messenger is seriously lacking behind with simple and small functions that can make it great. Facebook has friends that we do not want to share our phone numbers with to be able to communicate on other great and easy to converse instant messaging apps. One of those function is to be able to reply directly to a particular message. So difficult to handle conversation on Facebook as it doesn’t allow for different topics to be discussed concurrently just with a reply functionality. Most times when you go back to an old discussion during a new one the whole thing becomes confusing and then takes longer to type and clarify things with who you are chatting with. I can have a discussion in 3 mins on other apps and that same conversation would take me 10 mins on Facebook messenger. This is because you talk about one topic finish it up properly and start the next one again. When you can talk about both same time just directly replying to the exact thing you getting back at. Please fix this because it’s getting boring chatting on Facebook messenger. If you can smile to a message thumb up and other things why can’t we reply? Thank you.

- Great but definitely could be better!

Compared to previous versions of the app this is by far the best one but personally I think it would definitely be much better if a few things were changed on it. Even just the smallest changes could make it way better. Simplicity is key always. With this being said I think by making the main messenger screen less complex and having it to where you can go in the app and out quicker could have a great affect on everything including the ratings. Meaning having the Messenger App uncomplicated and more straight forward I know I would personally be happier with it and use it daily and as well as a good amount of individuals I know. For example if someone could get on message a friend & respond right back; almost compared to AIM or slightly like iMessage. It would change the game completely and have a higher rating guaranteed. Only asking to take it into consideration. :)

- Very Irritating – No need for update at all

Update: 7/9 – finally updated because it’s irritating for this app. Or to support last version. But why do I need an internet connection to login when I’m connected to my data? Still frustrated! Ok so usually I don’t do reviews. I might rate an app, sometimes I leave a review if it’s an especially exemplary app. But now, I’m going to leave a not-so-nice review: Please, PLEASE stop with the very frustrating update reminders. I looked at the update, and I have absolutely no need whatsoever for ANY of things that are “new and improved” for this app. People are complaining of it not working, of not needing “new and improved” versions, they are complaining about absolutely useless upgrades. I use this app to text three people. I use it to message them because we live so far apart and are friends through something that means we’ll never meet in real life. All I need out of this is app is 1, the ability to message them, and 2, the ability to receive alerts when they answer back. Nothing more, nothing less. I don’t need a new and improved video chat, or whatever these “room” things are, or new stickers, or anything else. Just plain ‘ole texting. That’s it. So please, because I am no longer able to use “this version” of FB Messenger, please make it to where the app does support older versions because I don’t need to upgrade.

- New update very upsetting

I am so disappointed with this new update. Here are just a few things I have encountered so far that is very disappointing and frustrating: 1.) can’t send balloon emojis anymore. This is a feature I used extremely regularly with friends. 2.) the notification sound has changed to a default iPhone sound and I have tried everything to change it back to the messenger notification sound. I miss the sound of the messenger notification but more importantly it’s caused confusion: every time I receive a messenger notification from a friend now I think I’m receiving a text from a client or important calendar notification. I am used to having separate sounds for separate notification, more specifically a separate sound for business/important (text/calendar) and social (messenger). With this update I no longer have that distinction on sound so I’m constantly picking up my phone when I don’t need to be. 3.) no sound sending message 4.) no bubbling hearts across screen when you send a heart emoji There’s other things I don’t care for esthetically but that based on person preference, I can get used to. The things I listed above are simply an inconvenience and frustrating to the functionality of messenger and I think you need to re-evaluate. I never really write reviews, but I am very upset about this update. I use messenger all day every day and this update is a big turn off to the application I once loved.

- Somewhat an annoyance

I don't normally leave reviews, but i feel that i have to in this case. I don't really have any problems with Messenger itself, being what it is; however, there are a few things that I need to gripe about: 1) foremost is the fact that it is a whole separate app from Facebook. You have to have both in almost every single case. I remember that you used to be able to utilize the Messenger function in the Facebook app without the need for the second application. 2) the most annoying thing about the Messenger app is the "friendversary." It's just an attempt to make the app seem relevant. I have pretty much every function of the Messenger app turned off aside from Notifications because I have a couple of people that only send things through Messenger. I seriously wish that the stupid "friendversary" crap could be turned off as it goes off randomly and the sound is quite loud and distracting.

- Post iOS 11.0.3 issues

Always been a big loyal fan of Facebook’s Messenger app and to this day it is still my go-to method of communication versus texting with my personal cell number. However, after the iOS 11.0.3 update messenger has a huge lag when it comes to sending pictures, and even messages at all for that matter. I thought it was the pictures themselves or the WiFi connection but it happens with any picture or video I try to send, no matter what size, and no matter the WiFi signal strength or network I’m connected to. At times the app will even crash right when opening it for the first time on any given day, no matter how often I clear background apps and history and data on my iTouch. Don’t know if it’s Apple’s or Facebook’s issue but the compatibility and functionality should be pristine and on point, considering how much we pay for our devices and how often software is updated.

- Newest Update

I recently updated my messenger and it’s weird because I have two Facebook accounts and I can only see the update on one account when I switch to the other account I can’t see the update, it’s in the older version. I don’t know if it makes a difference but the one account that does have the update is also open on another device I use (iphone6s) and it shows it’s updated and the one that isn’t updated I only have it in this iPhone XS device. I already reset all settings, deleted Facebook and Messenger Installed then back logged out of accounts and just finished Factory Data Reset. Nothing works I’m not sure what’s going on. It bother me because on the newer update seems to be more simple and basic than the older version. Same goes with instagram both accounts issue. I don’t auto update my apps on my iPhone XS but iPhone 6s I do . I’m not sure if that would be the issue however i still complete the updates ... hopefully I get answers from this.

- Latest update problem

I’ve just updated the apps in few minutes ago and I thought they’re going to improve the apps but no. Whenever a notification pops out and I clicked it to reply on the apps, it just forced to close. I can’t even click on the messenger icon on the right top of Facebook because it’ll force to close the apps. I like to use messenger because I don’t have to backup my messages as it’ll be stored online and even when my phone is charging, I can still chat with my friend by using laptop. However, I can’t type really fast and it’ll lag and I have to double check and correct my message sometimes. And, I hope that this apps can add a search history function in mobile phone version, because sometimes I want to check the first message that I chat with my friend and I couldn’t do this as I have to manually scroll back to the message which texted in few years ago. Imagine how long should I scroll back while me and my friend texting to each other almost everyday from day to night.

- A lot of Issues

So I have some things to say about this app ... It’s good and all you would need WiFi to text or call . The video thing is only 20 seconds which would be better if maybe like 3 minutes maybe like 1 minute long . The voice clips are like 1 minute long which would be better if it was longer ... But I’ve been having issues with this app ... I get a notification when somebody texts me and I’ll click on it and it still says I haven’t seen their text until I message them back another thing is when I’m on a call with somebody I can’t see their face and I’ll click on the screen and it would have a loading sign up but they can see my face and it’s not my WiFi cause that is good ... extra thing tho please please PLEASE have better filters and more to choose from ... Thanks for reading Bunny 🐰

- Bugs in New Update

Firstly, I am not a fan of the update at all. I particularly liked the availability to see if someone had read the conversation without actually having to open it, but that has been taken away. The 'active now' status is totally inaccurate, it'll say someone i'm physically with is active when their phone is locked in an entirely different room. My biggest peeve, though, is the inaccuracy of the read tag. If an hour goes by since the message was delivered, it'll read delivered until it is opened, but as soon as it is opened, it'll say "read one hour ago". No matter how long it's sat on delivered and how much later it's read, it'll always read that it was read however long ago it was delivered, when, in fact, it could have been opened 13 hours afterward. You claim to be focusing your app around professionalism, but how professional does it make you when you're "leaving your boss on read" when you're just finally getting to open the message?

- Doesn’t work at ALL on the Apple Watch

It’s a decent messaging app, not really anything special. But it seemed appealing because of its compatibility with all Apple devices. If you thought so, you will be DISAPPOINTED. The app does not work with the Apple Watch. It simply doesn’t. You download it, and it tells you to “log in with the paired iPhone”. You do that, and open messenger up on your phone. It still doesn’t work. You try logging out and back in to your Facebook account, and it works for a little while, but then the next day when you try to check your messages again, it doesn’t work. It is very frustrating when you try to make it work, but it just doesn’t. Hopefully the developers can really work on the compatibility and syncing between the watch and phone app, so it will actually work. Great disappointment, so you might as well just use the default messages app, no need to download this one.

- Can my old Messenger be reinstalled?

About 5 weeks ago, a friend wanted to use our WiFi to check on his phone while I was busy in moving my husband into a Care Home at the moment. Then this friend pulled our beam box from under the computer table. After that day, I stopped receiving emails on our computer and my iPad’s Facebook and Messenger were affected. Then I found that two plugs were unplugged from the beam box. I replugged the wires and found my Facebook was different and my Messenger lost many contacts. I have tried to reclaim those lost contacts with some success, but not all. On my computer I received emails from Facebook to check my Messenger for notifications etc, yet I cannot go back to my old Messenger on my iPad. How can I solve this problem? Please advice. I have gone to Apple Store to seek help, but was told only Facebook can help me.

- New update is bad

I’m fine with this app, but I think the most recent update messed up my messaging capabilities. I had a weird experience where all of my messages randomly disappeared, so I thought maybe I had to download the update because it was glitching. Updating didn’t fix the issue. It eventually started working again, but ever since the update my texting has been weird. I’ll go to fix the middle part of a message and, mid-typing, the cursor will jump down to the end again. It’s messing with my text messaging as well as messages sent through the app. I also haven’t been able to swipe-down on photos in the message to minimize them once I’ve expanded them anymore. My main concern is the cursor randomly jumping to the end of the paragraph. I utilize this app to run my business, so this problem which would usually just be a slight annoyance is seriously cutting into my productivity. Please fix this!!

- Disable messenger so we don’t have to use it with Facebook

I got phished using this and went through hell to make sure everything in my life was safe. It should be an option to have messenger or to keep messages on your Facebook!!!!!!!! You are forcing ppl to use this app when anyone from anywhere can send you something and can hack right into your Facebook account get your information and use it to their benefit, Putting all of your friends at risk for going through the same thing. I have emailed you, went to the security only to be told we are working on it. Don’t lie. You are not ‘ working on it’ you have no desire to ‘ work on it’. These phished got my phone number, email, etc. now they’ve moved onto my friends. There is nothing safe with this app. You could have a separate password, or a number of other things to secure an account that is built on ruining your life of the ppl who get into your Facebook account and can use it against you. MAKE IT AN OPTION, NOT A ‘ YOU HAVETo HAVe THIS TO Communicate with YOUR FRIENDS!!!!!!

- Purple icon and theme needs is obnoxious!

I hate it! I mean I really, really, really don’t like looking it at. Why? Why couldn’t you just leave well enough alone. The app was working fine. But you all just have to keep messing with things that aren’t broken. I tried not to let it bother me too much when you starting trying to shove Instagram content in my face, but now you have to decide for me what colors I look at as well and not even give me the opportunity to choose. I have no loyalty or love for Facebook. I use Messenger because I like texting with my friends. Up until recently the app added value to my life by making that easy. If this doesn’t change I’m uninstalling it. Today is Oct 18th. If I open the app when I wake up on Oct 19th and the colors (including the icon) aren’t switched back or at the very least configurable, I’m uninstalling and finding a different way to message my friends. There’s nothing too special about Messenger any more. It very replaceable.

- Stop and fix real issues

Stop adding features nobody asked for and were already a part of the app.. Nobody needs the little “you guys are both active” icon when there’s always been a call/facetime button along with a blinking band near the facetime when you guys were both active in the chat. This update has ruined my notifications and I never get notified when someone texts me. I checked my settings on the app and on my phone while also checking the chat settings. It is an issue on the update and looking at recent reviews it’s not a personal issue either. Stop adding features that aren’t needed or are already a part of the app and fix real issues. The fact that facebook/messenger has no real human support with so many bugs and hackers makes me realize that i’ll soon stop using social media with you guys starting to manage other apps and growing. Terrible service and app.

- I’m really disappointed with messenger

I got messenger for my daughter to talk to me while i was out so I could talk to her without calling whoever was watching her and it was really cool for the both of us she loved the option to change your profile pic but now you have to have Facebook I don’t want my 8 year old to have Facebook I don’t even have Facebook and I’m 33 please change this she got so upset that she couldn’t change her profile pic cause she got her first pet and wanted to change her pic to her new pet and the option was gone it was gone on my phone too so please make a little girl and a single mother happy and make the edit button or three dots appear or click your picture and the option come up please I hate that you ruined the app for the both of us please fix this mistake I also saw that other people were complaining about it too then maybe you should make the people who use your app happy and fix everything that’s wrong? Not a bad idea huh?

- Message Requests

I have had no problem with messenger, until recently. Recently (the past few weeks) every time I log onto messenger I get a banner above my messages saying I have 100+ new message requests. I click on it. Go in. Nothing. No message requests. I hit edit. Delete all. 3 minutes later I go on and it says I have 100+ new message requests. This is getting entirely annoying and I would really like something to be done about this. I don’t know if anyone else is having this problem or if it’s a bug. If it could be addressed or I could be told where I could turn off being able to receive messages from people who aren’t my friend that would be great. I’ve also been linked into group messages with people I don’t know by someone I don’t know to be tried to be sold something. (Probably a phishing link to be honest.) I really don’t understand why it’s even an option to be messages by people you don’t know but that’s a separate issue. Please fix this problem as honestly it’s a nuisance.

- Doesn’t work

I haven’t been able to log into my messenger app in over a month. I’ve updated it, deleted and downloaded it again, restarted my iPhone, reset my password and even reset my settings as a last resort. None of these solutions worked. Every time I try to sign in it has a message that reads ‘Error; Unable to complete request. Please try again later.’ I can still access it on a computer but I can’t look at my Facebook messages on my phone at all since the website redirects me to the messenger app and well obviously that doesn’t work out. Not really sure what else to do, none of my friends have this problem and there are very few people who’ve mentioned it on google and even less solutions for it. I don’t know if it’s because I have an iPhone or if it’s just the app but I’m not a happy camper. I even used the Facebook help to see if they could give me an answer but I still haven’t heard anything from them. Please fix this.

- trash

You should do a news story about how often people are blocked and silenced from Facebook like me. Supporting all other lives, while these people that support trump and bash anybody who supports any other party, religion, race or anything can post and leave their comments on here. But yet anybody like me who just says anything that's truthful not even bad just get silenced. Although it's supposed to be freedom of speech and media yeah things like this app can get away with that. Especially how I'm selling my own items on Facebook marketplace and they say I've made over $599 but I have an I've only made 596 and I have screenshots and evidence and proof of that yet their account and taxes is taxable income even though taxes were added by the government and is not at all income that I've made. Not only that I'm selling my own items that I've collected over the years yet it's like I can't have a life in this country. More than likely they're just trying to silence me so they don't have to pay me

- Message requests

I can’t for the life of me find message requests since you have upgraded the app. I have my little message icon showing on Facebook and haven’t been able to clear it despite the fact that I have read all messages from my contacts. I can only assume this is then a message request from someone I’m not connected with on Facebook but can’t find in messenger (on my phone) where to find them. I haven’t tried on computer but have tried using the website instead of the app on my phone and can’t locate it this way either. If you could fix this it would put my little OCD brain to rest so I can clear the unread message.

- Messenger app crashing

I thought updates fixes issues and improves overall performance? How come After I updated messenger on my iPad yesterday, it kept crashing? Everytime I try to open, everything goes black and freezes the whole screen. Please do something about it and make sure future updates don’t cause more problem. Another thing, the features in the old version like maybe until January were way better than the current version (eg. the video icon looks like it’s blinking when you are talking to someone and the person is on your chat/conversation at the same time, it tells you when the one you are calling is on another call, and it shows without having to open the conversation to check whether the last message has been read or not. The latest update is worse. Sometimes it doesn’t show someone is calling when I’m currently on another call. I just found out I got a missed call when I went to the conversations list and it shows I got one from a friend. What if it’s an important call that one of messenger users miss because it didn’t show there’s another one calling??? This is something that needs to be fixed the soonest

- New update March 2020

A perfect example of why new is not always better. Really not a fan of the new update. Used messenger for a while. Don’t like not being able to see whether someone has seen my messages and I don’t really know why they would get rid of that function. I also preferred the old way of viewing images in the app, it was much cleaner. The new way to view videos is also not as clean. Another thing is the replacement of the heart eyes to the heart. I’m not sure why they replaced that, the heart eyes was more useful for humour and other contexts. Please revert to the old update. Also, I don’t know why US companies use Australians as their guinea pigs for testing things like this. I’m looking at you Facebook and instgram, let me see how many likes or “reactions” posts have please. Why would you remove this feature. If it was in hope to reduce bullying or for self confidence reasons, then why did you still keep the ability for the person who posted it to see that number. :(

- Attention - Not happy with last update!

Just adding to my previous review, The app is now also running REALLY SLOW like when looking for a “gif” or sending pics it seems to take forever for them to show up being sent can you PLEASE look into this and fix asap!!! Hello there guys, Look I’m not here to give you a hard time I just wanted to bring your attention to something, You’ve just recently sent out a new app update & there’s one thing I’m not content about that I hope you’ll fix please?!? Basically you use to have it set that when you send someone a message that once you go back to the list of friends/family you’ve messaged that to the right of the persons name you could see if they have seen your message.... But now that’s not the case you have to click/select that person to view the last message you sent to even see if they have seen the message which is usually shown by that little blue tick to show the message has been delivered that then changes to the persons profile icon pic that you sent the message to indicating to you the person sending the message that your friend/family member has actually seen it, If that makes sense. So please rectify this & change that one aspect of your app back to how it was before this most recent update, Other than that the app works well & enjoy using it, Thank you for your time!

- Corruption and hacking BE CAREFUL PLEASE

I love messenger and there’s nothing wrong with the app, but I just want to let you all know that there is someone going around and sending people these “Is that you 😧” messages and then when you open the links it takes you to a page where you sign in (it does come up saying it’s a yt video). This has lead to my grandfathers accounts all being hacked and his computer being hacked as well. My Facebook account was hacked and I have changed my password. It had sent this link to all of my friends of Facebook and I had to message them all letting them know not to open it. The device signed into my account was a Samsung galaxy 3 or something along the lines of that. Just letting y’all know. (This is in Australia I’m un aware of it happening anywhere else) PLEASE BE CAREFUL.

- There’s a glitch and I’m not getting help

I have loved using messenger for ages now and sharing pictures and videos in our messenger groups, however now I cannot post quickly (takes ages or doesn’t at all) or see pictures or videos unless I physically log out of my Facebook app and close both apps manually. Once I do this the pics and videos appear and my posts post so others in the group can see my post. As soon as I log back into the Facebook app it happens all over again and I have to repeat the process. I have even noticed that not all pics and videos are saved in the threads from my view but are if I go through my husband’s messenger. I have deleted both apps and reinstalled them and I have not used my Facebook to log into messenger (so have logged in separately). It seems that the connection to the Facebook app is interfering with it working properly. Also wondering if other group threads I am on in messenger with picture and video content could be affecting this working? Please advise? Thanks.

- I don’t feel good with last update

I really don’t know where should I start but the only thing that I come to write this just because the last updated app is more and more wired to use and I don’t think that only me who feel this. First, start with the tiny blue circle that show us if our chat have been sent or seen by the other side but it doesn’t exist anymore now. Second, there a messy way to send my voice message that I have to click before I start and click again after finish. It’s not work as fast as the old once. Third, there are messy thing to send a photo that I can easily confuse or send the wrong photos to my partner cuz this feature is updated to the brand new thing but I don’t think it’s really helpful. There many things that I really don’t appreciate with this latest update but these three things is the most headache things ever after I got this update. I hope to hear and get the better version as before from you soon.

- Not happy with latest update!!

I have used this app for many years - found it easy and convenient. With this latest update however, it has changed some of the the simplest and easiest tasks and made them more difficult or removed the features altogether?? I liked the photo attached to the conversation; I liked how you could see if a sent message had been seen; I liked you could see if a friend was currently or recently active; I liked you could see all this with a quick glance!! I do not like this new version where I have to open each conversation to see if messages have been received; I do not like the tick for message received is removed from the home page; I do not like the impersonalization of a name with no photo for each friend; I do not like the update and would really appreciate the features I took for granted being reinstalled - I did not realise how simple and user friendly it was until you made all these changes??!

- Notification sound has changed

When a message comes through to my Lock Screen (iPhone XS) it is the normal ding sound. Every message from the same person or group that follows comes with the text-tone sound which I haven’t selected or know how this has happened all of the sudden. It’s super annoying as if it’s a group the messages come flooding in and they should just arrive silently and group as one message. But every follow up message sounds like I’m getting a million text messages. The notification settings on the iPhone app are super limited. I even reset my phone to factory settings to try and get rid of this issue but with no luck. Now I’ve seen in the reviews I’m not the only one with this issue. I’ve tried to flag this with the help section on the app but I’ve heard nothing back. If you have this issue too please give a review as well. Messenger, please fix this with an update, and do it now! Thank you.

- Not happy with new update...

One day, my cousins and I changed the theme to monochrome because we were messing around with the new themes. Then I realised I needed to update my messenger as my cousins had some effects on their messages that I couldn’t get. So I updated my messenger to get the effect. When I looked where the effect was supposed to be, and it wasn’t there. Even worst, when I tried to change the theme I couldn’t change it. We even did it to the family group chat, and when we tried to change it, it wouldn’t work and most of our family was annoyed by the depressing theme. I am so mad about this update, because the old version was so much better. Even the logo is ugly and looks like the instagram logo. I also heard that the new ugly logo is glitching onto the logo of the instagram app. I am so disappointed about this update. I even hope that i’d be able to give this 0 stars. (But the app store won’t allow it).

- Glitchy / Broken App ruined by 40+ pathetic updates in a row.....

Updates 252.1 onwards (roughly 40 updates in a row, so far...) Honestly do you guys even bother to check updates before releasing them? Over 40 updates in a row, and all you have done is introduce BUG, after BUG, after BUG.... On the iPad it constantly "glitches" or at least it did for the first 8-10 of those updates. Then basic functionality walked out of the room, and things like emoji's in the blue emoji at the end of the chat box vanished from the emoji / gif / sticker screen. So now it just has gif / stickers & a stupid poll option, and the only way to add emoji's is via the redundant Globe button. For the next 7 - 10 updates when you reinstall it, it's glitched from the outset. I have sent you multiple error reports verifying all of the above / below, and not once have you listened to me or any of the other thousands of complaints. Other issues: Active status is hit or miss Unable to create events Unable to tell if a message is delivered or not Notifications no longer being sent / received .....& many many more. Seriously, how you can screw up such a great app, with 40+ of the worst updates known to man is beyond me. What we would all love to know is if you plan on FIXING this abomination of an app and returning it to its former glory (ie prior to 252.1 onwards)!?

- Why?

Why would the people responsible for updating the messenger app make it so ugly and confusing to use with each newer update?? And what’s worse is when you don’t update it for a while after the new update is out, they have the audacity to keep reminding you of the update! And no matter how many times you click the “not now” button, they come back to ask the same thing an hour later. Enough! I didn’t want to update the app because I know every time I do update it, it gets progressively worse. My eyes hurt from looking at what has been done with the recent update. I want to undo the update but I don’t know how. No one should ever update the messenger app, no matter how much harassment you may receive from the app telling you to update it. Sometimes things are supposed to be left alone the way they are. Don’t mess them up like this. I hate this update. It’s worse than the previous update. I don’t like it at all. And neither should anyone else.

- Not happy with the latest update...

I am not at all happy with the latest update. It has gotten rid of recent stickers, which I use all the time and now I have to go through every individual pack to find the ones I want... It has also removed being able to hold down a sticker that has been sent and be able to select “show pack” or something similar. This would then take you to the pack of stickers if you have downloaded it, or it would take you to where you can download it. Another thing that has changed is that you can no longer send small, medium and large versions of your special emoji, on the right side of the keyboard, by holding it down for different lengths of time. It will now only send a small version 😔 As I said before, I do NOT like these new update and I hope you change these features back to what they were originally!!!

- deleted messages

i wish this app would completely delete people from messenger after questioning and replying to a for sale post on facebook .. as messenger is the service used for facebook and the sales sites set up on facebook . every time i go to a message from friends i continually see old messages contacts keep popping up after being deleted . if there not in our friends contacts they should be permanently deleted after you delete them from a conversation . fix this please is very frustrating and pisses me off . cos there is no other way of deleting them unless you block them on fb but then if they are regular sellers you cant see there other items at later date . needs to be fixed .and I have one person I have blocked on fb I do not know and they continue to stay on . How is that possible unless they are a hacker .

- Perfect but for one thing

I absolutely love this app but if there’s one thing I hate about it, it’s the limited options for muting conversations. I have a friend I enjoy conversing with, but she sends me several memes every day. I’m really not into the memes. I get my fill of them in FB. But she gets such pleasure from finding and sending them to me I don’t want to tell her to stop. So, I’d like the Messenger development team to provide an option where by I can mute photos/pictures being delivered. E.g. “Jane has sent a picture” to get no notification but typed conversation to come through as usual “Jane: Had an interesting experience today!”

- Why fix what wasn’t broken?

As a UX consultant, I have to say I am severely disappointed. The newest version of this app aimed to make its use more simple, but really it increased the complexity of conducting a basic conversation. As a homage to the stupidity of the industry, it seems a designer who can make pretty pictures has come in, without a thought for use cases. First of all, and most striking, is the removal of the emojis... this I don’t even understand. Now I have to download another app to add an emoji keyboard in my phone, which I have to switch to every single time? Yay. Also, now if I want to send a photo from another album in my phone (not the recent camera roll) I have to go through 3 other interactions to get there: and if it’s a gif it will paste as a flat image? Now I have to go into my photos app to access any of these photos. Yay. The fact that messages are automatically opened if you haven’t exited the conversation, without notification, is ridiculous. Missing messages ISN’T what I want out of a chat application. Not to mention that there is now an extra step to get to the shared media... Sometimes less isn’t more. Do us all a favour and give back what we had because it was working seamlessly and didn’t need “fixing”

- Almost my worst app ever

I really don't like this app. And seriously why can't you choose multiple messages to delete at once?? If it's going to be a messenger app make it more like text messages. This is annoying and painful Still no update on being able to delete multiple messages Mar 18- Another year - still can’t delete multiple messages Further to this, I hate that when you have the same people in a group chat, it starts new chat lines and doesn’t merge with existing chat group. I also hate that you can not delete people out of here if you have messaged with them for Facebook marketplace, they stay on your contacts. I don’t want complete strangers knowing whether I’m on here or not!!! And again, how can you mass delete messages or chats???? Seems like a stupid app to me but I have to use it as it’s the only one now

- Messenger annoying bug

Since I update yesterday I have constant trouble my messenger keep cutting off and keep taking me to the front page it’s very annoying and frustrating this update keep crushing you suppose to fix the bugs not creating them I update the app again today and sorry to say this app is still crushing also there is a time delay the app constantly get crushed approx every 2 minutes it is very frustrating I update the new version and the phone keep crushing not so often as it used to but it’s still very annoying as I be texting and all of a sudden the phone blinks and get me on the screen page it’s only start happening since the last 3 update ,I write this message and had no issue but if I was at messenger I probably wold have to get back on messenger 6 times I know I got old phone iPhone 5s 64gb memory, please try and fix the update

- A multi select delete button

Messenger is pretty annoying atm because I get thousands of unwanted messages from thousands of unwanted people since 2017 and because I literally just got the app and it’s taken me weeks to delete them and I still have thousands to delete it’s ridiculous that we can not delete them by multiple selections to make it easier and faster it’s actually making me want to not use messenger again because it’s taken that long and still going just delete unwanted messages I don’t know why you have removed that option you need to put that option back it is actually so annoying to go through thousands of them individually and delete it it’s literally taken me weeks and still have thousands to go put that option back pleaseeee

- Waste of space on iPhone Xs Max

The application is merely a scaled up version of the iPhone X interface and thus, does not take advantage of the larger iPhone Xs Max's screen. This results in blurry, oversized text, image and UI elements. What makes matters worse is that it has a very low information density. What this means is that when compared side by side with the iPhone 7+, the extra vertical screen space is not being used to show more text, images and threads, it is simply being wasted with even more white space. Furthermore. The application does not follow dynamic type settings in the iOS setting application. This means that despite setting the smallest font size. The font remains comically oversized that it looks as large as an advertising board and can be seen from across a standard living room with 20/20 vision. It's enormous and it is a disgusting oversight.

- Not great if you’re a private person who likes boundaries

Good for communication especially with people you might be trading with from a buy swap sell page. However, I often get put into groups I would rather not be a part of which means I’m having to leave them and look rude and this has made me less inclined to use it and to keep it off my phone. I think as far as being put into a messenger group without being asked/ invited and given the option of accepting or declining is an invasion of personal rights. Also when you choose to leave a group, is it really necessary for it be shown up in the whole message so everyone can see?

- No notifications plus more fails from this update

Liking the fact you can now automatically see when someone was online last which is great but it seems with that feature you have removed some valuable ones. The msg sent to the person and if they’ve seen it without going into that persons specific chat has now gone as has the notification that I’ve received a msg has now gone. New message only shows up in bold when I’m physically in msgr no notification despite all my settings saying notifications on. Come one fb I thought these updates were meant to improve a users experience not impede on it.... additionally the hide a conversation with this new update has removed as being an option. I don’t want to archive I want to hide the conversation

- New update Sept/ 2018

Messenger is such a nice app, we can chat to family, friends, have groups and be able to share and store pictures until this update. We used to be able to tap the name of te char or the name of the person we were chatting to and access all photos shared in the conversation now you can’t, which is a terrible thing when it comes to being able to find some important information or reference. Also it seems that we no longer can go back and read the conversation that happened over 5 months ago because the history of the chat ends there! I wanted to access some pictures and the dates I shared them with a friend and nothing, just until April, and I had shared the pictures back in February so I couldn’t find it.

- You messed up big time.

Why are there STREAKS in a messaging app. It makes SOME sense on snapchat but on a MESSAGING APP? How about instead of ripping off snapchat for their bright ideas, you just stick to what this app is supposed to be; a MESSAGING APP. Who do you think is going to send a message saying "streak" everyday to keep a streak on a conversation. It's actually infuriating that this idea was implemented. Im just imagining the MANY LEVELS OF MANAGEMENT this idea had to go through in order to be implemented and yet IT STILL WAS IMPLEMENTED. WHO THOUGHT "WELL WOW THE NEXT GENERATION WOULD REALLY LOVE THIS HIP FEATURE, AYE??". This is seriously the most annoying feature out and by far the lamest implementation along with Facebook stories which no one even uses. I beg you, for all young people out in this world, stop being so extra and just improve what you have. You're making snapchat look good.

- Overall

Overall messenger is a great app but there might just be some bugs they need to fix up such as it glitching not sending and the icon to show that people have seen the message u had sent them. Making groups is a great thing about it but as u know many people leave groups which means at last it will be only be left with u or only 2 people,messenger should improve and make it be if people leave 3 people have to be left in the group another good thing about it is that u can have how many people u like in a group. In my opinion messenger is a pretty fun and good app to use!

- Constant bugs

I constantly experience bugs while using messenger, usually minor ones that can be worked around, but this latest one is ridiculous. As of today, every time I receive a message about the world cup or even mentioning the word "Australia" the message flashes up for a split second before disappearing for myself as well as the sender. I think this has something to do with the stupid world cup themed plugins that allows you to take photos with a filter over your face, as it appears at the bottom of the screen shortly before the message disappears. If it weren't for the majority of my friends using messenger I would have stopped using it long ago. You would think a company with this much development budget could get it right. Disappointed

- Extremely unhappy with latest update

Where to even start there are so many problems and issues with this latest update it’s ridiculous One of my biggest issues With this update is the Avatar stickers you create yourself (which I loved and used every day) keep disappearing from messenger other sticker packs that I’ve downloaded are there but not the custom create avatar stickers if I uninstall the app and reinstall the app they then reappear but then after a few hours or no more than a day they’re gone again and I have to uninstall and reinstall to get them back and I’ve had to do that more than 8-10 times there’s so many other issues and problems I have as well but so many other different reviews have already mentioned and or covered those

- Messenger not openin

Recent update not so good. I cannot open messenger. It immediately crashes when I open it. I reinstalled it yesterday and it did work for one day. I have an iPhone 6 and it always work well before this. Please fix the bug as soon as possible. This is very annoying. It’s the 3rd consecutive day this week, every afternoon my messenger crashes every time I opened it. Turns into black screen. I uninstalled the app thought it will rectify the issue and few minutes later reinstalled again. Sure it works for a day then back to crashing again. What’s the reason of this problem. Please fix it outright ASAP. Thank you. Please fix this App. It constantly crashing. I always delete the app and reinstalled again but same thing happens. What’s wrong this App.

- Unable to login with phone number 😡

The creator’s of the app should inform people in the description of using the app that if you either buy a new phone or get a new mobile number that you need to log out of your account. I have two accounts that I have created with the app and I can’t access either of them. Now I need to create for the third time using my phone number because I don’t want or need to have a Facebook account and the app won’t even allow me to do that. People should be able to create a messenger account with their phone number without having a Facebook account. Also messenger should have Face ID available for when you want to sign in option. I would really appreciate if someone could get back to me regarding this issue.

- Store links in group chats...

Facebook messenger is pretty straight forward with what people need.. you have a place for photos in chats.. but something I think it needs.. is a place that stores all the links people share for re watchability and or re use ability.. and would be very great full because if you have 20 people in a chat and they hardly stop talking and sending links and instead of sitting through hours of chat to find links you could just click on the options for the group go to saved links and easily re use them..

- Too Easy to Accidentally Delete Messages

Have always enjoyed using the messenger app, however, I find it easy to accidentally delete messages when I meant to hide them. When you hide a message, a banner appears and asks you if you are sure you want to hide the message. Yet, when you delete a message, no banner appears to check you are sure you want to delete a message. This is really frustrating because you can easily delete something. The developers really need to take this into consideration as this must happen often. Thanks.

- Works well, but...

I use Messenger regularly. It is pretty good & convenient. BUT, I want to be able to delete selected conversations & single messages for everyone, especially admins. It is silly for a message to only be deleted from myself and not others, ESPECIALLY if you are an Administrator of a group conversation. Administrators are there for a reason, so why would an Administrator delete something from themselves only and not the whole group. Odd. Administrators should be able to moderate all conversations in a group and to delete something from everyone if it is necessary without everyone in the group being told what the Administrators are doing. So, to sum up, messages should be able to be deleted - not just from myself but also from the person I sent it to... like it used to be. If I want to delete something I want it really deleted. And to be able to edit mistakes etc Please include this in an update. Added to this, why fix something when it’s not broken. Updates are not always good.

- Emoji bugs since the newest update in March

I can no longer use emojis in chat, when holding down the little face icon in the text box, there are only “stickers” “gifs” as available buttons instead of “sticker” “gifs” “emoji”. I reinstalled the app and the emoji button was back, then a few hours later I opened messenger the emoji button was gone again. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the app again and the same thing happened, the emoji button would be back for a few hours after I reinstall the app before disappearing again. I don’t know what kind of bug this is, but it only started happening after the latest update. And now I have to manually switch keyboard if I want to use emoji in chat, no a big deal right, it only takes like 5mins to use one emoji, it’s great.

- Message bubble & other features

I’m a daily user of this app and would gladly appreciate if you could bring back the bubble chat head for iPhone users to make it more efficient to use instead of needing to constantly open the app just to message another person back. However other features are great but as some others have pointed out if it’s not broken please don’t attempt to fix it. More so I do like the fact that the design has changed and the little improvements made as it no longer drops out on me as it used to :)

- Works pretty well but constant updates are too vague

I rarely have any issues with using the app, it even has some advantages over a web browser; in particular, you can create plans in the app but not in browsers. My only issue is that there is almost always an update in the App Store for messenger and the description is always the same vague one. It doesn't matter if the specific bug fixes and changes are listed somewhere online, it should be in the update description and users shouldn't have to switch between apps to find out what they're downloading. Considering how many people must be working on these updates, it comes off as really lazy or really shady that the same description is being copy pasted every time.

- The latest update is terrible

I’m sure you’re going to receive a lot of feedback about the latest update, and I hope you listen to the feedback and revert back all the terrible changes you made. Firstly the option of hiding messages is gone, now they can only be deleted. The “see who’s online” feature constantly has to be turned on. It doesn’t stay on after the first time you turn it on. There’s no filter for message groups, the hidden message requests filter is gone, and the worst of all you’ve removed the message delivery/read icon from the chats list. To see if your message has been delivered or read you now have to go into each message individually. Why change something that isn’t broken??

- Forced me to update

I was perfectly happy with the old design. New design made to match the new iOS. Now feels very clunky. Would've been fine if they didn't force me to update - I wasn't having any issues. Poor UX. But worst of all performance issues. App is so laggy nobodies pictures loads and takes minutes opening conversations. If you're reading this please revert me to the old version my fb name is Amir Sirder Edit - performance issues have been solved (was probably first time indexing my chats) will bump it up to 3 stars. But the UX is still bad, I have an iPhone SE so my phone resolution is small. I want to see 6-7 chats on my screen not 4. Feels like they are treating my like a blind old person.

- Can’t view videos

We rely on messenger for videos and pics of our granddaughter who lives interstate and as of a couple of days ago we can no longer view them. The latest ones show as being there but they won’t actually play unless we go into edit mode. Also when scrolling back through older videos and pics they’re not downloading to be able to view them. This is happening on my husband’s phone as well so we assume it must be something to do with the latest update (either app update or ISO update). We love going back and rewatching favourite videos every day and we are so frustrated, annoyed and heartbroken that we can’t access them easily. Please provide us with a fix or advise us on what we can do to remedy this.

- Annoyed with update

Messenger is my first point of contact, I liked that it was simple, you could see with a quick open of the app if your messaged had been sent and received/opened, and at exactly what time, now it gives you a estimate of “an hour ago” which in itself is very glitchy, I can be told my a friend was online an hour ago and they’ve opened my message 23 minutes ago, it’s very annoying and to me this is really uneconomical. The features you’ve added have gone completely unnoticed, just the ones you’ve changed. I had read the other reviews since the change and no one is happy. I think it would be in your best interest to change these settings back. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

- YouGoneAndMessedUp

My messenger app has turned sensitive. I keep getting logged out, when try to log in it says “can’t connect to the server”. This is the only app on my phone glitching and being this slow. People’s names, conversations and pictures won’t load. I get the notification on my phone instantly, however, if I dare look or reply, messenger crashes. This is awful. My phones storage is fine and I’ve installed and uninstalled so many times. My messages are accessible on my laptop on Facebook search. So I’ve taken all the possible “but” and I’ll I’m left with is a glitchy app. Please fix this, I have university and work information being sent on this and I don’t wanna have to use my laptop to access. Really disappointed

- Keeps resetting and blocking people

So today I was Messaging my girlfriend and everything was fine but I sent a message and then I sent another message not even a minute later and it was failing to send saying she’s unavailable to chat so I messaged her on another source telling her what’s was happening and she was sending message that would send but not deliver so I reinstalled the app and went back in and it told me she was blocked on messenger and I had to unblock her then everything was fine, but then I noticed our emoji we had set in our chat which was the 💖 emoji was in fact a 💰 so I changed it back to the 💖 and exited the app and closed it and opened it again to check and it went straight back to a 💰 it’s very annoying that this stuff is happening please do something about it

- Again? Seriously?

It seems to me that every time this app updates its either fixing a problem it keeps causing or causing the problem it keeps fixing. After the most recent update my app has decided it doesn’t like being open for more than 30 seconds to a minute at a time and will simply close itself halfway through me typing a message. I’m having to reopen it multiple times in order to send or type a message and sometimes it doesn’t even give me a chance to do that. This is the third time this has happened and it’s always after an update. I’m generally fairly patient but honestly it’s getting tedious. If this problem could be solved it would be much appreciated.

- Disappearance of documents and saving issues

Unfortunate for me to write this review but very disappointed with how poor this app has become. Most of my documents that were saved onto this app on my iPad are no longer there. Majority of the times when I save a document with what I have typed up, the automatic save switch will be on which is convenient as I can add something later down the track and then return to it, seeing it still there. However recently with my some of my documents, I can only see what I have typed up prior to manually saving the document. Whatever I have typed afterwards are no longer there or saved. Really disappointed as this app was convenient at the beginning.

- I demand a “search by date” option!!!

Great app, used daily. But one MAJOR THING the developers forgot to add is THE ABILITY TO SEARCH MESSAGES BY DATE. It’s 2019 and yet I still find myself scrolling for hours through 10’s (sometimes hundreds) of thousands of messages just so that I can find a conversation from a particular date. People suggest “key word search”, but this is unhelpful when you don’t even know what you’re searching for! The whole reason I’m searching through my old messages is to backtrack and try to remember something about a particular day. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! I’m so sick of having to scroll for ages just to give up half way cause it was taking so long.

- A good tool but forces you to be on Facebook !!!

The idea of sharing your personal life for approval flummoxed me… knowing that Facebook is doing everything in their power to make you spend more time online for them to know more and advertise more and create free content .. also they tend to decide how to shape the perception of the young generation … they also push their own ideology in a covert subjective manner , like what they are doing painting a rosy picture of the oppressing Israelis despite the Terror crimes they do against the Palestinian people. In short I can’t see any good from Facebook … and any parent caring about their kids mental health should be actively involved in resisting signing for this platform given the very immature legislations in place to govern their transactions online

- Perfect except a small bug

I love this app so much!! It’s my main way of communication with pretty much everyone I know. However, I have been experiencing a small bug, involving the text box. Sometimes when I tap on the text box to start writing a text, it won’t allow me to write anything. My keyboard doesn’t pop up at all, and the line (that flashes whenever you are about to start typing something in the area), doesn’t appear at all. This happens only SOMETIMES but I it would be very nice if I don’t experience this at all. Thank you :)

- Notifications Problem

Great app, except for the second time in the past year, randomly it will stop sounding notifications. Last week it was working perfectly but without warning (or app/OS update) it has stopped pushing notifications to my phone for messages. It will, however notify when one of my messages receives a reaction which is strange. I’ve updated twice without remedy and reset notifications but it is quite annoying not knowing if someone has replied and having delayed conversations with large gaps.

- No repeat alert tone!

Overall I’m not upset with the newest updates. The one thing I am not happy with is that fact someone will send me a message and I’ll get the initial notification sound but the moment they send another (and I’m yet to open the first one) it won’t alert me with the tone anymore. So I am finding that I am missing a lot of messages now. Also if you play games through messenger and the person has taken their turn on a game there is NO alert tone at all! Then if they then message you, you don’t get notified because messenger is seeing this as the 2nd message and therefore no alert tone! Very frustrating because if you miss that first alert you don’t get alerted again! Terrible feature!!!

- Calling

I love messenger and I wouldn’t talk to a lot of people without it, but I call one person in particular quite often and in the latest update, when someone is calling a notification comes up and there is the iconic messenger ringtone, but I have to log into my phone and open messenger to answer the call, which can sometimes mess up my messenger and I miss the call. In a previous update messenger made the call like a normal Mobile call, where u can answer the call without logging into your phone, just simply pressing a button. I don’t know why this was changed but I would love for it to return. Please messenger...

- Not happy

Admittedly I don't use Facebook much, I only got the app in order to effectively communicate with my work and friends. It was glitchy from the start and would shut down randomly- annoying but I could deal with it. Then later it started not updating conversations and it was as if no one had posted anything (which they had) and only the next day did it load all the messages. Hoping for a fix or at least something a tad better I updated the app. Now, no messages will load at all and this is unaided by the continued "trying to connect" "connected" messages that change to the other every second. This app has gotten worse with the update and I hope these (at least some of them) will be fixed soon.

- Profile pic

Pretty great but since last year approximately i cannot change my profile pic(i dont' have facebook)

- Won’t show messages

App is constantly saying it’s reconnecting and won’t show any messages. Have went days without realizing someone has messaged me.

- Love Facebook messenger

I love Facebook Messenger it’s simple and I use it to text my family

- Group chats

Hi, Wondering why if FB owns WhatsApp why doesn’t the client behave the same in a group chat. If I am away from a group chat for a while in WhatsApp is picks up right where I left off when I comeback. Messenger just gives you this “20+ unread messages” thing and then takes you back sort of where you were but not quite as good as WhatsApp. Can you please fix Messenger to be gave like WhatsApp? It would be so much less annoying to use if if just behaved like WhatsApp. Thanks Marc

- Give my emoticons back!

Dear Mark, I really love Facebook emoticons, why did you guys remove them? :(

- Request

Please update my messenger I loved the new update last couple weeks buts it’s gone to my messenger and it went back to the old one

- Seriously, ads within messages?

Whoever thought adding ads throughout Messenger was a good idea was WRONG.

- not liking it!

facebook! please give us an option if we want to upgrade or not! this new screen interface is so annoying! i want the old look, much simple

- Forced to use

I did not want to download messenger to be able to talk with people, I was forced to. I miss the old way of just being able to see your messages from within safari or in the app. Now to use Facebook I have to have two different apps! I'm currently looking for an alternative to Facebook, as with all the changes it has become quite a nuciense to use

- Are we stupid?

So, messenger wants to help us build more meaningful conversations with friends and family. I think most of us can handle that just fine ourselves. I do not want to have my inbox filled with stuff I did not ask for from people I barely know. If I want to be in touch with people I do so on my own, at my time. Can I just mark these unwanted mails as spam or block it otherwise?

- Facebook Messenger review

My app totally shut down because of this update, which now that I’ve updated it, is honestly not good. Wack.

- Can't open

Last version crashes while opening. Unusable!

- Change it back

How do I get the normal messenger back. Like it was before this update. I hate it. I didn’t even wanna update my messenger but I had no choice. Due to it updating on its own. I hate it. And keep logging me out. So no I don’t want this new update. At all

- Love Messenger/Great for old folks too

My mother has Alzheimer's and doesn't get much use out of her iPad except for messenger. Every morning I sent her videos of random things off the Internet and she can spend a 30 to 60 minutes watching them… It brings her a lot of laughs. It's also been a great way to keep connected with friends in other countries. I highly recommend it for anyone.

- My messenger doesn’t work good

I have iPhone 11 Pro and I’m trying to write a message but the conversation disappear and I can’t write nothing I delete the app and instal again I reset my phone I updated my phone And the messenger still doing the same thing What I can do more ... please help

- App crashes

Most recent update causes app to crash 50% of the time upon opening

- The App doesn’t even open

You can’t even report that the app doesn’t open.

- Crashes

Iphone 6 user here. Every time I open the app it works good but if I tab out to another app and come back. Messenger closes. Please fix or I’ll delete app.

- Messenger

App worked great until about a week ago, now Messenger won’t open on my iPhone. I have uninstalled & reinstalled it , works for a few times then quits again ? Please fix issue.

- Love the UI redesign

The new UI redesign is really great, so much clutter is now gone. Good enough to make me write a review. Seriously good work.

- Mise à jour

Depuis la mise à jour que j’ai fait ce matin, je ne suis plus capable d’ouvrir mon messenger.

- BLOCKED THE ACCOUNT

Just locked my account. I was changing my setting on my computer. Which is not a regular device I use thats what it says. And now asking me to confirm my identity. Can’t confirm it logged me out of all the devices.

- New version

The new version is terrible!!!!

- New update

I have the update but it didn’t change anything!!!

- Messenger does not work properly

I have to constantly delete and reinstall the app. It will work for one min then will stop sending and receiving messages. Anyone else with this problem?

- Plutôt déçue

Je trouve que la nouvelle mise à jour rend l’expérience moins agréable. Avant la mise à jour, lorsqu’on était sur l’accueil de toutes nos conversations on pouvait voir si quelqu’un avait lu notre message alors que maintenant on doit ouvrir la conversation chaque fois pour savoir. Aussi le processus pour envoyer des photos n’est pas très optimal, car il est difficile de faire la distinction entre chacune de nos photos, car il y a 6 petites photos collées les unes sur les autres. Est ce que dans la prochaine mise à jour il serait possible de régler ces problèmes?

- Usually great

Chat system is fine, but once in a while you don't get messages until a few days after they were sent... that's not fun...

- It shows i’m active when i’m not

It’s so so so annoying that messenger shows i’m active when i’m actually not. Every time just right after my friends send me a message i became active, so when i replied them back late, some of them thought i ignored their messages..it makes me stressed can you please fix this problem? I even deleted and redownloaded this app twice but same problem still occurs

- Arkk

la nouvelle mise à jour est dégoûtante pour faire un message vocal étais bien mieux avant et on voyait si quelqu’un avait vue notre message sans qu’on aille sur la convo (je préfère l’ancienne version)

- Disappointed

Not a big fan of the new design. Change it back!

- Fix it ASAP

The app after iOS 14 acting so weird when I type a message it goes back the main screen!!!

- Emojis are not right

Give back the large emojis to iPhone users please...

- RECENT UPDATE HUGE PROBLEM

My app updated in the last day or two and now an edit bar keeps staying over the text (typing) bubble. Please fix this!!!!

- I hate the new update!!

This new update ain’t it. Please switch back to the old one.

- WAY TOO INVASIVE & INTRUSIVE!!!

You think your stupid update is so fantastic bcuz you've now made your app so EVERYBODY can See EVERYBODY'S business!! Don't you think that totally Breaks all PRIVACY Laws! Why on earth would I want everyone to see that I'm using messenger and that they can see Everything about me within their Chat Threads and visa versa??? "More Meaningful" Who the heck cares about"More Meaningful?!?" I don't get WHY you would try to make messenger basically the same as facebook!? Facebook is already waaay too INVASIVE & INTRUSIVE, and now you're doing, and pulling off the same crap to us!! If messenger is going to continue making the app Extremely Invasive and Intrusive, then I'm just going to have to Delete it and stick with Text Messaging, where Nobody Knows or Sees what I'm up to until I actually text them and decide whether I wanna divulge any info!! Why do you think I haven't friended people on facebook? Bcuz I don't need my FB profile name, popping up on everyone's page basically saying: "Looky here, Kaycee just came on facebook!" "Oh goody, I'm going to message her and see what she's up to." It's NOBODY'S friggin business what I do!!!

- App now laggy and weird

Ever since “meta” was a thing, my Facebook aps have been awful. Particularly messenger. When i type out and send a message, the chat no longer moves with the conversation. I have to actually scroll down with it. I get a new message notification, and it will just do the pinwheel load icon for 3-5 minutes before i can actually see the message.

- Annoying

Something is wrong with the way my messages send. The chat doesn’t move up. The app is up to date. Not sure what’s going on

- Full of bugs

Since the new update the app has been full of bugs. Takes forever to send and receive messages. Everytime I receive a message the screen and keyboard do not adjust to show the new message on screen so I have to scroll down each time to show my new message. And the media quality is even worse than before

- Bugged message sending

Used to be pretty good, now pressing enter skips a line instead of sending the messenges. I don’t know if that was an intended change or not, but texting is now very much obnoxious.

- It’s functional.

Used to be good. They keep adding garbage and getting rid of good stuff. Lie getting rid of gifs. Just stupid.

- Garbage

This is a garbage data mining app that spy’s on you. I had my account suspended for sharing a meme with a friend who didn’t report it... GARBAGE platform and garbage app!

- bug report - wont show searched messages

the app is good, just reporting a somewhat frustrating bug: 1. in a chat, click on the person you’re chatting with at the top and then click “search in conversation” 2. type whatever you want to search and hit enter 3. click on one of the result messages 4. bug: the chat is blank when normally you would be able to look at the chat history at the point in time of the chosen message at (3)

- Problème

Depuis 2 jours, je n’arrive pas à répondre à aucun message via l’application à moins que je l’a supprimé et la réinstalle. Si je fais cela, j’arrive à répondre à environ 1-2 message(s). Ensuite, mes messages ne s’envoie plus... Pouvez-vous m’aider?

- Fix it

No notifications for marketplace messages. Fix it

- sucks right now

Usually I don’t hate messagener. But It’s crashing, unsending messages, deleting and backing out of conversations all of a sudden and being extremely frustrating trying to get anything done. Not to mention Message Requests barely notify and when you do open them they slow your phone down 1000%... Needs some bugs fixed for sure.

- I phone 11 incompatibility

Every time I receive a message in messenger, while I’m writing in a chat, the app kicks me out of the writing part. I have to start my message all over as it completely disappears.

- Won’t open when I turn my phone on

Recently, every time I turn my phone on the messenger app won’t open. I need to delete it and download it again for it to work! It’s the only app to do that.

- great app but 1 major flaw (for me)

It is 2020 now and still no option to be able to use my phone ringtone instead of the apps sound. At my work 90% of my college have an iphone and almost all of them use messenger and when 1 starts ringing almost everyone checks to see if its there phone that is ringing (including myself). I am very disappointed that the option to use my phone ringtone as not yet been implemented on the IOS version of the app, while it is doable (other apps can do it) and is been requested for years.

- Add new features please

Now messenger message became big mistake for some people’s because they can’t remove messages send both side it’s just allowed for 10mints.. please make new features that we can delete messages from both side even its has been a year . That’s could help some people.

- good

good

@mannedupurself @HagleyTom1234 @BBCNews in the link you provided, they literally call it a vaccine "Two COVID-19 vaccine trials, both of which use messenger RNA (or mRNA) technology to teach the body to fight the virus, have reported efficacy over 90 percent."

@chris_ashton1 @BBCNews See? I told you the "Insult the messenger" play is the next one down after all their actual arguments are extinguished. It's essentially a surrender. 🏳️🏳️🏳️

@billsfanmonica Hi Monica. Do you ever check your fb messenger?

@JohnMajinjon @StrayPolitical @BonVoyaged_ Don't shoot the messenger man. You should take a moment and maybe reflect on why learning about all of these ethical compromises from Ivanka and Kushner has you upset at the person mentioning it.

@sethweathers i.e. messenger kills important message

@willddawg @BenDuBose @AllbrightNFL Don’t shoot the messenger brutha that’s what someone in the know said the Texans asking price would be I could see where they take CMC they wouldn’t want Teddy back his number is too high CMC’s number is too that’s why Brian Burns would be more likely who they would covet
