Dark mode  ErickKSlzr  4 star

I’ve been using the app for about a good 4-5 Years now. I must say the app itself has changed a lot with new features and new add-ons. However, what would make this app even better is if you guys integrated Dark mode into the app for night use. Especially people with visual impairment like Myself, I’ve been having eye-strains from the white light. I’ve been using the iOS warm light feature to compensate, but I think this would be a feature everybody would and will love mainly for healthier use for your eyes and because dark mode is becoming quiet popular among the tech community. Overall good app 👍🏼.


I love your app  Rulesa  5 star

I think for me this is the best app

Privacy  Econhyggg  1 star

Turn your microphone off and don’t allow anything for this app. Their is a reason why they make us download an app separately from Facebook. Read the agreement form and see what you’re agreeing to. Some of the things you’re agreeing to is them listening 24/7 to your convos, text messages, picture, messenger messages...etc for advertisement and what ever else they do with our info. Be smart. Read up.

Terrible experience  Rhzyak  1 star

The app is too big for people that exclusively use the app for text. For a 16GB iPhone, it's become more and more of a problem to keep the app for something I use so rarely.

This is revolutionary new technology!!! I love it!!! 0112358134


Call Quality  Kamnoeut  3 star

Well, the quality of the call in messenger is so poor. I’m moving to What’s Up. It’s much better that faster. Sound is best too. You have to fix it developer. Fix it.


No sirve  EduCubano  1 star

Esta actualización no sirve porque da acceso a agregar personas que quizá uno no conoce o que le escriban al privado sabe Dios que lo mismo puede ir desde amenazas hasta fotos y textos fuera de lugar preferiría que solo pudieran escribir mis amigos los cuales están en mi Facebook Muchas Gracias


Messaging  Viv95372  3 star

Randomly my messages won’t send to somebody but they will to other people. And when I use any other app, the messages go through perfectly fine so it’s not my service or theirs.


Whyyyyyyyy!!!  Semjase123  1 star

This is terrible! It did not need updating! Use your time on other things instead of messing around with an app that worked quite well until now!


It's only messenger if you can see messages..  EvaCorona  1 star

I'm going to be brief: as brief as the new update on this version of messenger. Can you see anything written in the space below the first sentence; and above this question? No? That's what I see when I open messenger. Not only do I *not* see anything, it consistently crashes (I could set my watch to it), and despite deleting and replacing the app numerous times- it STILL doesn't work. If Julius Sumner Miller was still alive, I believe you'd know what he'd be asking of you right now.

Update in reverse?  qwertykiara  2 star

Not responding  johnnyd2007  2 star

Please fix this, it takes ages to load and often does not work at all. Thanks


App frozen  jowahsen  1 star

I have a new iPhone X and for some unknown reason this app just does not work on this phone. I have rebooted it, selected it and re downloaded but still it remains frozen.


Keyboard on iPhone X buggy  JoseRamosramirez  1 star

When switching between normal keyboard and the emoji keyboard the app does strange things. And is not a smooth experience. Please fix.


Banner notifications  Stoph77  2 star

Is very annoying that it shows a notification because I have turned off banner notifications

Scotty Ze

Audio messages failing to send  Scotty Ze  1 star

How many times I’ve spent a whole minute recording an audio message and when I take my finger off it failed to send. If there was any competition to messenger I would absolutely be using it! This is the most annoying application I have on my entire phone


Stop changing the frckn UI.  noccer  2 star

How do I Live location share? Seems to be removed.


Extremely Laggy  MC9407  1 star

After the recent update, the app is extremely sluggish and laggy on my iPhone SE


Facebook  Darkchilli  5 star

That’s true my friend is having the same problem they ask him to submit a selfie, then wait, when he calls the Facebook hotline you always seem like your talking to someone overseas, first time they told him to send 199.98 said someone was using his account to try and get money from people next time he call, they told him to send 99dollar in a money order what a joke why would Facebook need a money order to turn his account on.


Idk  Ndkskans  1 star

Tried to download and didn’t let me


Um 😐 i like it  krichy10099  4 star

Dj Timmons

Voice messenger not working  Dj Timmons  1 star

My voice messenger isn’t really working every time I press and hold and release it doesn’t send I’m not sure if this happens with anyone else but yeah it’s starting to get aggravating


Myday  kkeengu  3 star

Guys I need help. Months ago I accidentally clicked myday's hide button so it doesn't works now. I want to unhide it so what can i do?

Hate  Susie G 1022  1 star

I hate hate hate hate hate this app. I get so mad when people message me with it. I have to download the +#+#£<£# app, read what they want, DELETE APP, text message them reminding them that I hate and do not use this app! I liked the old way. You could email people IN FB without having to use a separate app


I begrudgingly use this app  Gigligimli  1 star

Can you move the button for messenger away from the back button so I can stop accidentally hitting it? I still hate that it's two awful apps now instead of one. I switched to Paper after they broke the FB apps apart then they discontinued that app. I've found myself using FB way less since Paper is gone. I don't care for having two apps for something that used to be one and I don't care for any of the extra features. Did you stop Paper because it was too good?


Crashing...  Swagaliciousness12  2 star

At random moments the app will just exit out and end any calls I’m on within the app. This didn’t start happening until recently today.


Amazing  Crazymaniack958  5 star

It’s great for all ages cause you can if you are a kid and on vacation and you want to talk to relatives and you parents won’t let you talk to em just use this
