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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Messenger uses location data to make features work, help people connect and more.

Why on earth would you remove the ability to archive or delete messages? Please put it back. That's ridiculous.

Delete  Opa724  1 star

Can't delete anything your update stinks - dumb !


Almost perfect  HAY HAY GURRL  4 star

This app is basically everything I need to talk to my friends. Some complaints though. -Every time I send a heart, little hearts hog the screen and I have to wait for the hearts to leave before typing anymore. There should be an option to turn it off. -When I send pictures, they don't send in order and it gets very inconvenient. That's all. Thank you for reading.


Fb has nerve  Kmbr93  1 star

FB has some nerve forcing you to download this app. I took the fb app off because of how much space it was taking. I go on under safari and they try and force this on you too. Its getting ridiculous

What a waste.  Koala Dude Person  1 star

I'm not gonna lie, I wanted to delete my Facebook account just so I could get rid of this app. Don't force people to download an app, that's how you lose users. If I wanted messenger I would've downloaded it myself without my phone telling me. Update: I've gotten used to it, still don't care for it. Another thing that frustrates me is that when the app CONSTANTLY updates, it doesn't even tell you what the updates even are so you have to play a guessing game to figure it out. It's ridiculous. Stop updating it! It's taking up all of my storage space! A free app means nothing if theirs no storage space for me to enjoy my phone


Epic failure  workingclassdog  1 star

this app is called Messenger, it's big and gets bigger every update, whatever is lurking within this app. The features are lacking for it's over 100 megs file size. There are app's Half the size and smaller with more features and faster.

I hate the latest update!  WildRoses09  2 star

Recently messenger added a feature where you swipe down to open up a video/picture feature. As someone who almost never wants to add videos/pics to my messages, I HATE THIS FEATURE. I scroll up to the top of my message lists only to switch over to a useless section that only serves to irritate me. There should be an option to block it/turn it off.

Opening Camera From Every Side. Disturbing  Kak_vhai  3 star

Scrolling contacts. Suddenly camera came up. Too much pain. Sliding side can also open cam. Too much camera opening is really disgusting. Previous Msg deleting option was good. Now it's boring and time expensive.


Bad app  Wishicouldfindanicknamenotused  1 star

Slows down my iPhone data. I delete it and it is back to normal


Bloatware and unnecessary  Pilotboy172  1 star

Why do we need a separate 160mb app to send messages? Why am I not able to use the mobile web platform as you force me to download this app?
