Messenger Reviews


App crashing  JJ_USMC  1 star

Since the latest update every time I go to type in a message the app crashes and only can log 1 word at a time. Need to fix this bug soon


App shuts down  Lanbrae  1 star

Ever since this update I cannot type more than 3 words before the app just shuts down. Does it every single time I use it!


Notifications  Uccsop4god  1 star

Stop forcing notifications. I don’t want sound notifications and I am fed up with having to see that damned red exclamation point in my profile for notifications! Stop telling me what I want! I make those decisions. NOT YOU!!


Notification changed  Len719  3 star

I just noticed a few days ago that when I received a notification it showed the message. It used to show just the name of the person. I went into notifications and shut preview off and now it just says "messenger notification," put it back the way it was


Deleting the app  Dfdsakjhgf  1 star

Facebook let foreign agents harvest user data. Deleting the app. App notifications are also super aggressive


Too many updates!  Sjshsjabaiusjwbsj  1 star

I used to live messenger but recently there has been a lot of updates and the app lags so bad that now it won't even let me click on a name to text without either booting me out or taking 10 entire minutes to load


Hi  slaizpna  4 star

Messenger app  Snr18  3 star

Messenger helps us communicate with relatives living abroad.It helps us also stay in touch with them through video calls whereby we get to talk and see each other.We are grateful for the opportunity given to us to communicate with them through this means.But at times there is poor connection.


iOS  Jess☝☝  1 star

I have the first iPad, iOS 5!! though I don't really use it but have noticed most app's require later version of ios to download.can I update without plugging into iTunes ? Tia.


Photos crashing down  Jinchuurikki  3 star

Messenger freezes when trying to send multiple photos, but even more weird still my whole phone just crashed minutes ago the moment I even just opened images through messenger, that’s a pretty bad bug, it never happens when I do anything else so I conclude it’s the app, it was perfectly good before this problem started occurring

Why CAN’T YOU FIX THE APP  Awesomest 97  1 star

App not working on Apple Watch  Chev. P  1 star

Just got a new Apple Watch and everything seems to be working fine except Messenger which just continually shows the loading signal. Have tried a number of fixes including updating the app, deleting and re-downloading etc, hard re-set on Watch etc. Seems like an issue with the app itself.

Worst service  Mjduped  1 star

I can’t open the app , it was stopped working on this phone Iphone 7 plus What can i do !!!! App stoped suddenly!!


Fix this  Beckyw2002  1 star

Crashes within seconds of opening.


Shouldn’t be separate app  texjer  1 star

This is ridiculous. I hate how slow it takes to switch from one app to the other. And switching always causes me to lose my place in my feed, or worse, if I was writing a comment in Facebook and switch over to messenger, I lose the comment I was writing, and vice versa. I hate it. Why?


Asks you to turn on Push Notifications Every. Time. You Use it.  Dkenebrud747474  1 star

Messages and calls  MudLaw  4 star

Most times very good


It’s good enough  TaylorKaminska  3 star

Works good and everything, but you can’t see who has seen your message or anything unless you click in to the chat with that person. Also doesn’t let you see who has viewed your story, very annoying. But it works fast and everything.

Loading conversations  Megossy  1 star

Newest version 14th March 2018, will not open only iPad 4th generation. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, i have over 22gb available so not a memory problem . Feeling very angry disappointed and let down


Latest update  MOD.97  1 star

Since the latest update this app has been kicking my out. I’m trying to talk to people and then next thing I know I’m back at my home screen. The app is good overall but this is sure needs to be fixed. I find it annoying that I can’t talk to people on messenger because I’m being kicked out of the app.
