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  Los o fun  1 star

Don't force me to download an app when I don't have any storage on my phone.


Messages Won't Load  Mandy040712  1 star

This app used to work fine but lately every time I open it, it tells me it can't load the conversations. I have to delete and redownload the app (sometimes multiple times) before I can open a message. When I exit the app, it goes back to not working. I've seen other people post the same problem so fix it!


Worst messaging app !  simplepod  1 star

FB needs to trash this and get rid of intruders who spam and hack. FB security is getting much worse, and too many junk adverts. Only Google is worse!

Fix it!  Deans ice cream  1 star

I'm tired of having to reinstall it when I want to see who messages me!


STOP IT  MusicalEnder  5 star

Why are you making me take up space on my phone for a completely separate app? I can do it right on the Facebook app! You don't make me open a new tab on my computer to answer my messages, so why on my phone?? And make it stop constantly (practically begging) telling me to turn on my notifications for it. I don't want them, so stop asking.

Forced to Download  Covert to  1 star

I was forced to download this app, and after downloading the app it will constantly annoy me, pestering me to turn on notifications for it.


Suggestions  AzukarDR  3 star

The app is fine by itself the problem is that in some way we are force to have if we have fb. People that you not even know who are them can send you msg. Even If you don't have the app they can sent you msg. Should not be able to the people send u msg if you don't have the app or options for only your fb contacts

Crashes when I try to send pictures  Unhappy buyer-1  1 star

This app is terrible. Ever time I try to send more than one picture the app crashes. I can only send one at a time and I still have to deal with crashing in between each picture I send. Really needs some major improvements.

A Bees Knee

Manipulated  A Bees Knee  1 star

I'm forced to download messenger because I want to see a link my friend sent me in my messages. Why don't I just check on my safari? I'm prompted to download messenger with no option to check messages... in my web browser!!! It's suspicious that the only way to check messages is if you download this app, an app that requests a great deal of access to your phone including your text messages. I'm not happy with you facebook. That's right. Lower case f.


Confusing  FireON  2 star

I don't know who came up with all these ideas but Facebook messenger has become the most confusing app it's ever been. There's way too many different things happening all at once. Keep it simple. Keep it just an app for messages. Get rid of all Add to your day crap, Active people and Suggested people sections. So confusing.

The messenger app is horrible.  BiigMaama  1 star

The messenger app is horrible. I'm getting so many things I do not want to receive and messenger is constantly sending me information about boosting and pain for my posts.


Don't want Facebook talking liberties  NurseAnn55  1 star

The app is ok but what I don't like is Facebook assuming that I want everyone that I Facebook with on messenger, that should be my decision NOT Facebook books, because I don't want everyone to be able to inbox my phone. Let people decide for themselves not Facebook decide for us.


Please Update to fix the games!  Mr_Giggles  2 star

The games are really messed up right now! Ever since the update. Please fix them! Thanks!


Frustrating  K10Sose  2 star

2 very frustrating aspects of this app. 1. I don't like that I have to have it in order to see Facebook messages on my phone, then if it's from someone I don't know, it's hidden somewhere. I was trying to sell items through yard sale Facebook pages and didn't see messages for months. 2. Stop asking me to turn on notifications! If I say I don't want them on when you ask, which is EVERY TIME I USE THE APP, I promise, I do not want them on.
