Secret messages
by Concerened Spouse on 2020/07/14 12:34
I don’t understand why Facebook messenger allows secret messages that’s just ridiculous! It allows many people to hide things from their spouses. I think that that should not be allowed. There’s no reason to hide things, if you don’t want people to see something then don’t send it. Please End this feature! Thank you!
great but glitchy
by x.piercethealex on 2020/07/14 12:24
lots of force closing, won't let me use the camera sometimes, a lot of the time it won't even let me open a conversation. i am pretty much forced to delete and reinstall the app every couple days because of the force closing.
Featured Pictures Under Friends
by ElEfBea on 2020/07/14 11:22
How do you select the six featured friends? In my case, they’re not even real close friends but acquaintances, but I can’t delete them to select my real close friends. We/I should be able to choose the featured friends like the featured pictures. Please consider my remarks because I’m very unhappy about the so-called friends you chose for me. Thank you.

HACKERS ALL OVER
by Forrizzleandshuzzle on 2020/07/14 03:01
It’s insane to think this app has good reviews. So many of my friends have been hacked just from using this app. Random people will message you and if you tap on their name to see who they are BAM your hacked. They threatened my brother trying to blackmail him. And I’ve heard so many stories of people getting hacked on this messaging app it’s not worth the risk just text people or literally anything else. Don’t take the risk

I have never had trouble with messenger until now it keeps closing app while I’m trying to message someone I tried deleting the app and re downloading it and I tried restarting my phone nothing works it keeps doing it so I have to keep retyping what I’m trying to say to someone if you could fix this issue would be much appreciated!
Settings default to show on line status as active

I am getting sick of some of these updates defaulting my on-line status to “active.” I do not need folks to see when I am active. If I want to reach out to them, I will. No need for you to. Very disheartening. Quit messing with it, please
Messenger isn’t working!!!

As of 7/13/2020, my iPhone Messenger app isn’t loading ANY of my data! I can access Facebook and Messenger through the Safari browser just fine, and nothing’s missing. However, I have no data in the app. It’s the same thing with Facebook!
I had a virus sent to me through messenger link.

Tired of it crashing
by D14m0nd qu33n on 2020/07/13 19:29
I'm really tired of messenger crashing while I'm writing when I get another message in, or crashing just because I opened it. It's really pissing me off. Crashing on my iPhone 7 AND on my new iPad. Anybody have a fix?????? Don't tell me to uninstall and reinstall. That helps for a day. I don't want a bandaid; I expect the company to fix the issue.

Update prevents messenger from opening
by Ninni Angela sue on 2020/07/13 18:50
Ever since I updated this last update I can not open any games or messages in messenger, I never had problems till that update, I can’t read my messages or respond, this is so aggravating and now it’s useless to me, I have group messages blowing up my phone and I can not even get in to leave the groups, I read so many bad reviews about update and it forcing the update and I didn’t want to do update and it forced the update and exactly what they were saying is what happened now to me, I also found out my account has been hacked and face book has done nothing, they didn’t ever advise me, a family friend had too and now my private and personal info has been compromise, this is unbelievable I tell you
Dissapointed!
by tiaigt on 2020/07/13 18:20

Keeps crashing
by zon00b on 2020/07/13 18:00
I don’t know if this had anything to do with the update, but it keeps crashing. Like, if I click on the app it shows me my messages and the screen goes black and brings me to the home screen. It’s really annoying. Also, when I’m calling someone, it will sometimes crash and it ends the call and doesn’t let me back in to Messenger. I’ve tried restarting my phone, but it won’t work. I think it might just be my device, because I don’t think anyone else is experiencing this. Will change my review if this gets fixed.
NFL Redskin name change
by Lillygirl1960 on 2020/07/13 17:05
To whom it may concern, I have been watching your station for years and today on your noon show 7/13/20 your anchor Marty Bass made a insulting statement about the name change of my team Washington Redskins. He said that the team name should be changed to the Washington possums cause they stink and they get killed on the road. I know this station is a Ravens station but there are a lot of Redskin fans that ARE sensitive to this subject. Hope you don’t get a flashback from this ststement.

by Romani1977 on 2020/07/13 12:06
With the amount of money you people put into your tech you’d think at some point in the history of Facebook and now Instagram you’d have a handle on the notifications. Once messages are checked those little red dots and check marks should disappear.

Suggestion
by Nicola_Peltz on 2020/07/13 03:39
I wish there will be an update where you can get notified when someone is online. Like a bestfriend for example, name is online. Something like that
People who are not friends are seen online
by Boom2018 on 2020/07/13 00:27
That’s annoying and they should fix this in the app. The problem that you can see people online you ever exchanged messages with and who are NOT on your friends list, have existed for a long time at least on iPhones. It’s impossible to mute them.
Word Suggestions
by PercyDovetonsils on 2020/07/12 23:49
The new version auto-installed yesterday, and now the app no longer offers word suggestions when typing. This is a large step backward, especially when texting in foreign languages. This is one of the primary reasons I use this app, and I hope there’s an update to correct this in the near future.

ATTENTION IMPROVEMENT NEEDED DESPERATELY!!
by LindaLou505 on 2020/07/12 17:47
I would give this app 5 stars but there is A few things preventing me from doing that and that is that you can’t delete several conversations at one time, you have to delete each one individually. I was recently hacked and over 200 of my friends were sent horrible disgusting videos of pornography and my inbox is full of these messages. I have to delete each and everyone of them one at a time when I should have an option to click on all of them and delete at one time. It is gonna take me a while to delete each and everyone of them and this is extremely frustrating. It surprises me that y’all don’t have that option available as this kind of option is available on most all kinds of messaging apps, and in the meantime I have to scroll forever to get to conversations with my friends that I talk to on a regular basis. Another thing I am so sick of messages that say forward this to so many people even me! The majority of these messages are made from hackers and it’s how they are able to hack your account. Why does Facebook allow this???? It has happened to me 3 times and it’s extremely hard to recover your account. Facebook makes it hard. You shouldn’t allow those kinds of messages at all especially when you know what happens. If I wanna forward a message I will on my own. So annoyed with Facebook and messenger. I am also SICK AND TIRED OF THINGS I SEND TO FRIENDS OR THEY SEND TO ME ALL OF A SUDDEN BEING REMOVED BECAUSE YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT AND DONT LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY OR BECAUSE YOU DONT WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON LIKE WITH THIS COVID-19. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO MONITOR MY CONVERSATIONS WHENEVER YOU WANT TO. YOU WILL TAKE THESE KINDS OF THINGS DOWN BUT WILL ALLOW HACKERS TO SEND OUT THOSE DISGUSTING PORN VIDEOS OUT TO EVERYONE BUT WONT TAKE THEM DOWN. FACEBOOK YOU ARE DISGUSTING. THAT IS AN INVASION OF MY PRIVACY AND THATS AGAINST THE LAW SO YOU IN MY OPINION AND A FACT YOU ARE A CRIMINAL. I ALSO SHOULDN’T HAVE TO HAVE YOUR MESSENGER APP IN ORDER TO TALK TO FRIENDS ON FB. PUT THE MESSAGES BACK TO FACEBOOK FOR THOSE OF US THAT DO NOT WANT TO USE YOUR APP ANYMORE BECAUSE OF YOUR HORRIBLE SECURITY. I AM SURE YOU WONT DO ANYTHING BECAUSE YOU NEVER DO AND FROM READING ALL THESE HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS FROM OTHERS JUST PROVES THIS. Why have feedback if your not gonna listen to the public’s complaints against you. If you think people won’t find other social networks where they are more respected and leave Facebook and messenger then you are really dumb and stupid. There are way to many out there available. FACEBOOK HAS GOTTEN WAY TO HIGH AND MIGHTY AND YOU GIYS NEED TO REMEMBER HOW YOU GOT SO SUCCESSFUL..... BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE US WHO ARE LODGING COMPLAINTS AGAINST YOU NOW!!! If they all start leaving...... YOU WILL BE NOTHING AGAIN. As for myself, I will be leaving messenger and finding a new messenger app and most likely a new social network if things do not change NOW!!!! TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED IN FACEBOOK AND ITS CREATORS!!!!
🤨
by Nayla :) on 2020/07/12 17:27
Please go back to being able to use this app without a Facebook account. I don’t want one but I want messenger. It’s really stupid that we can’t use it without a Facebook account

Frequently Breaks
by claidheamdanns on 2020/07/12 13:14
This app frequently breaks. It will show unread messages in Facebook, but when I click on the link it opens Messenger and there are no unread messages. The only way to fix it is to delete the app and reinstall it. Then it shows an unread message, and when it goes to Messenger it’s a message which I had already read.
Can’t finish typing😫

Fail update
by Loudiloo on 2020/07/12 00:13
I don't know why they removed the sharing screen option in the last update. On Android it's a spec that never changed. Such a stupid decision. Who needs a room where he can't share a screen. Long live Zoom.
Suggestions!
by AmansCraftYT on 2020/07/11 22:32
This app is absolutely amazing when it comes to messaging! But it lacks some features, such as text customization (bold, italic), maybe pinned messages in chats? These are only two suggestions, but I think they’ll fit great into the app.

For some reason, whenever I get a message, I'll open the app, click on the friend that sent it, them start to respond, and I get booted to my friends list. Then I'll try again, and it'll work until I either finish, or they respond before I finish, or get another message. Then I lose everything I typed, and get forced back to my friends list. What is going on???

Would you please stop updating every 2 days interval

It almost same so our app doesn’t work properly if you bring for us updated version regularly! Otherwise the app is good! We are happy with this!
I have a suggestion
by Gshot2002 on 2020/05/08 06:55
This is a pretty good app in my opinion! I use it 24/7 to talk to my friends. I use it more than my phone’s built in texting app. I love that you’re able to video chat with people, see if they’re active, and you can personalize the chat a little bit. The biggest complaint I have though is that you can’t delete images from the photos and videos section of the chat’s settings. You can only delete those things from the actual conversation. This is bothersome to me because I talk a lot to my friends and if I want to go back and delete some old images, I’m unable to because they’re too far up in older conversations. I also can’t search my conversations anymore because it always bugs out. It won’t load the conversations and then after that, the app won’t work at all. If you could take these things into consideration, especially the deleting suggestion, then I would very much appreciate it! Otherwise though, this is my #1 messaging app!
Voice recording
by MihaiLH on 2020/05/07 18:41
Regarding the voice recording option...I have noticed for a while, specifically after an update I was forced to make, that I cannot scroll the window while recording, otherwise all that I've recorded dissapears, and I have to start over again. My question is...why can't you follow the same pattern whatsApp has and actually keep the recording option visible and available while scrolling up and down, without any issues? And also, when and if I lock the screen, the recording should be paused and not lost, again, something that on whatsApp you've managed to make it work, but not for Facebook Messenger. It's very frustrating and primitive, as I'm wasting a lot of time trying to deliver a vocal message. Another important lack of utility is the absence of a cursor while listening to a voice recording, as I'm not able to move back or forward the message, so If I need to listen again a certain part of it, I can't, but instead I have to start from the beginning and wait until I get to that part again. And why am I not notified when the recording is over? I could keep talking and have no ideea it's not recording anymore. So, my review for your latest updates would be ZERO, if I could select this kind of rate. You are not improving the application, you are making it worse!
Glitches
by Hg52 on 2020/06/02 19:56
#1: when I’m typing a reply to one of my friends and someone messages me simultaneously, it closes me out of the conversation and erases all of what I had written and just brings me back to my inbox and it’s really frustrating because it happens every single time and always seems to happen when I’m typing long messages and then I have to start all over. PLEASE FIX ASAP!! Cause I just wanna use a different app to talk to my friends now but would prefer not to! This has been a thing for 2-3 weeks now and hasn’t changed even though I update it every time I get the chance to. Just downloaded the update for today so I’ll see if that makes any difference, but I highly doubt it because the update didn’t list anything about bug fixes. #2: this glitch just stared happening yesterday (June 1st, 2020) where I haven’t been getting notifications for new messages. I made sure to check my notifications were on in my settings, which they were, but my friend sent me a message at 9am and didn’t get it until 2:50pm. So please fix, again, this is very frustrating and I don’t want people to get mad at me and think that I’m ignoring them when I’m not. I hope you read this and can do something about it, please and thank you.
New Update is Trash, Useless (iOS)
by Lady Ash A. on 2020/04/04 12:57
The new update is absolutely disgusting. It makes this app not only visibly unappealing, but the new UI is hard to use, foolhardy, and removes many useful features. I also keep having problems with crashing. The new online/offline status is buggy and gets stuck. Phone calls are buggy too and stopped displaying properly. Messages can no longer be easily copied, deleted or forwarded. The old menu was easier. I preferred the swipe reply feature. Messages are no longer easy to reply to in notifications either. Pictures are not easy to send. I used to like this app because of the little unique things like the old cute reactions, chat colors, and balloons and hearts that you could catch. Now, they are all gone. I used to love using stickers, but the system is all messed up now as your most recent stickers and the packs are harder to find. I do not like the excess spacing between packs either. I am not exaggerating to say that I hate this new update. I have recommended that people do not update if they still have an older version. Many of my friends have agreed with me and say that this new version glitchy, problematic, and ugly. I have stopped using it as much because it is useless now. What did you do to this app?
The Fall of Facebook Messenger
by Game Center!!!! on 2020/06/01 03:18
When I was younger, I was introduced to Facebook Messenger by a friend. I am still rather young, and Facebook isn’t a commonly used social media amongst people of my age. Facebook Messenger, however, rapidly proved itself to be the greatest messaging app I had ever used. Everything from the themes, to polls, to games, to the overall feel of the app made it the go-to choice for both private messaging and group chats. Every update seemed to make it better. That is, until a few months ago, when a big update hit Messenger. Games were removed, along with polls, the ability to inflate the chat emoji, and the usability of the app. This app has become unusable. After only minutes of use, sending and receiving messages slows to a crawl. It is near impossible to have a proper conversation as messages take multiple minutes to send. Facebook doesn’t seem to care. With each update, I pray that Messenger returns back to its original state, its former glory. Until that day comes, I have no choice but to use other, inferior messaging services when I do not have access to a computer. I’m sad. I’m sad that the once great Messenger has fallen so far from what it used to be. Please, Zucky, please tell the Messenger team that they must fix their app. I beg of you.
New update is horrible
by RbkhWllc on 2020/06/17 02:05
Facebook and messenger are always changing. The new messenger updates are less than desirable. For some unknown reason when I have a message from marketplace and delete it, it still keeps the marketplace folder in my chats, even though there are no messages in it. Before, when you’d delete all the marketplace messages, the folder would also disappear from your chat list. I had to uninstall and reinstall the app to make it go away. Then it happened again today, except now it not only is keeping the folder in my chats, it’s saying there’s still an unread message in it when there are zero messages in the folder. Seems minor, but I like my chats cleaned up, so the fact that it no longer goes away is rather annoying. Also, could we stop constantly changing where “spam/other/message requests” go? Why can’t you just make it a more accessible option and leave it? We shouldn’t have to go hunt for the folder and this last update completely moved where they are found, to the point that initially I thought message requests were just going to be a thing of the past. Rarely are the updates good, and it’s clear others agree. Unfortunate!
Please Do This !!!!!
by Lori_Green on 2020/03/28 09:32
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.
New Update is Absolutely Horrible
by bfstkkbbdsrhkmnbbf on 2020/02/24 02:42
The title seems harsh, but you need to know how bad this update is. It’s annoying that the texting screen has to be full screen the whole time, and I also hate that you stopped including the cool things with emojis. My friend and I liked sending the balloon emoji, and it would send balloons all over the screen. With my mom, I’d send a heart and make it really big. Both of those features are removed now, because you want the app to be easier for “business purposes?” Seriously? It was never meant for that, and, let’s be honest, most people would use Messages anyway. The majority of people on the app just want to enjoy the app by texting their friends and family, and now you got rid of things that made the app unique. I really liked Messenger, but you had to waste it by updating like this. Please, please just leave it how it was. I would talk about some other more “important” issues, but there are other reviews too, like how you have to have a phone number now to text. I don’t know how this update can help. I sound rude here, but I want you to take the time to read my review and consider what I said. Thanks for reading.
Stop making unnecessary changes
by yasmine725 on 2020/03/01 02:28
Cmon people. Seriously stop with the completely unnecessary changes. You did not have to change the bubble where you could see if the person viewed your message or not without opening the chat. Also I want to see if the message has sent or not without opening the chat also. I don’t want to have to open the chat and check every individual person to see these things. Not to mention the way you send photos is so annoying now, before it was much easier. Also, it’s annoying how to press copy and remove message. You guys did not make any changes that helped me in any way and it’s frustrating and longer especially the way the stickers are set up. Whoever designs these things, should be fired. I prefer the version from many months ago, where I could find the games and so forth. You all need to stop making stupid updates when there is literally no need to make anyone’s life more complicated. No one likes it, especially all the people I talk to. Messenger keeps getting worse and worse every single update. I wish I could go back to a year ago, because that was the best version.
Fair review.
by Kacey2017 on 2020/04/09 23:35
I feel as if that app deserved 3 stars from using it a few days. I’ve had it on other phone but I just recently started using it again on this one. I gave it a 3 because there is no option to voice chat with more than 1 person. I feel as if the time is getting near that this app should have that feature to out do competitors. Discord has a voice chat that allows more than 1 person to join and I think that they are below this app. Please add that feature. If you do, I will be willing to give it a 5 star rating. I like that you can have a group text chat but voice allowing multiple people is better for those who want to have prayer with more than one person. If you are a developer reading this, please respond to me to let me know you were interested in my feedback and please recommend to your higher up. Please reassure him I am willing to give this app a 5 star rating if they add a voice chat that allows multiple people to join. Bless all who read these words.
Staple features removed and NOW breaking bugs
by AlexN.64-Bit on 2020/04/09 02:15
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 🤔
Nice update the app is cleaner and faster
by A_M_J_95 on 2020/03/03 07:41
I can’t believe you finally removed all the trash that was bloating this app ,now finally the app looks like a messaging app which how it should’ve looked since the beginning, unfortunately as cool as the app looks right now I think this change has came in too late ,well for me at least because I don’t recall the last time I actually used messenger to message someone and every person I know has move away to using other apps that provided a better and cleaner experience that what messenger used to offer for the past years ,now I’m not hating here no in fact i hope people get back to using it because it’s just more convenient than other apps especially now that it’s simple and clean but I’m just saying it’s kinda late and I’m afraid people have gotten used to the other apps but we’ll see about that...
New update is total garbage
by cat1122334321 on 2020/02/29 04:51
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
by licialowoke :) on 2020/03/29 21:30
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.
Why update it to make it worse?
by igrimReaper on 2020/05/08 19:09
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
by Grobo555 on 2020/03/15 03:55
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.
Why not Apple CarPlay like messages has
by Jeff horn on 2020/01/22 21:50
Hello how is everyone doing? I’m wondering why messenger isn’t up to date with everyone else. I’m sure others have the same thoughts, A lot of individuals use this service to call and message others along with maps people send others when they are trying to meet and for products and merchandise just for an example. Why can we not have this app sync with our vehicles like the phone and messages app that Apple have in place. This would be a very nice update to an increasingly popular app. Not only that, but it would make us, yes even yourselves safer on the road. After all isn’t that what we all strive for, I know your users strive for this on a daily basis. Please if you would, look into this. I for one drive a very huge truck 2016 F350 dually FX 4 lifted & oversized tires for work purposes. I am a safety officer so I especially know safety is of the utmost concern no matter what we do as a society. I for one love my Sync3 system and would love to be able to use it to keep us all a little safer.
New update looks really bad
by smarchetti on 2019/01/30 10:51
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.
Pointless
by Silverramette on 2018/01/16 04:29
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.
what happened???
by NiaNicole1992 on 2020/05/28 13:52
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
by dashcraft11 on 2020/05/21 20:44
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.
Not Horrible but Has Issues
by Tambri62 on 2019/02/12 15:12
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.
Somewhat an annoyance
by Wolf of Flame on 2019/12/11 14:53
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.
Great but definitely could be better!
by Obsessed w/ makeup on 2017/12/17 08:05
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. :)
Newest Update
by J.Angeles on 2018/11/19 13:19
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
by unicornnnk on 2018/06/15 05:38
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.
Post iOS 11.0.3 issues
by eva_joes on 2017/11/03 03:10
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.
What happened?
by LSCKBS on 2020/04/29 05:38
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.
Notification alarm
by Babystego on 2020/03/30 05:46
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.
Very poor job with this one.
by Shackelton326 on 2020/06/05 00:40
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 updates seem like downgrades
by jec00k on 2020/03/03 18:38
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.
I’m really upset
by victoriannaxo on 2020/03/06 07:20
All of my messages from the past hour have been deleted. The chat color changes sporadically. One day it’s blue. The next day it’s back to the gradient hue. And then back again. Nicknames get deleted, mixed up from other groups I’m in, and then goes back to the persons regular name. I can’t see if my friends have read my messages, I can’t see whose online, and I can’t send new messages to people. Sometimes this works?? And then disappears again. The cute chat feature that I use with my boyfriend where the emoji blows up to a bigger size, no longer works. I can’t send stickers, and I can’t use any other apps while in a call or the call drops. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship and it’s our primary source of texting, calling, video chat, and now it barely works. What happened?? The app goes from functional for a few hours, I close it out, then everything is gone. I’ve turned off my phone, closed out the app, and even deleted it and reinstalled and nothing has changed. I’m so sad.
Update please fix!
by AlexisPR87 on 2020/02/25 21:40
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!
Disable messenger so we don’t have to use it with Facebook
by grandmas home on 2019/07/28 14:10
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!!!!!!
Bad new update
by Takastrapi on 2020/03/07 06:55
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.
Facebook messenger need to pickup the pace
by DIGBYS XPAND on 2018/08/20 20:02
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.
Message Requests
by P'od user on 2018/05/07 05:47
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.
Very good but....
by woof user on 2020/02/24 01:31
Messenger is a good app and I like to talk and connect with people on the app. And the sticker feature I really like since you can pick from a wide variety of different things. But the thing I recently hated about messenger is that I can no longer save gifs that I send to my friends or anyone, and I used to be able to do that and I would give a five star rating then, but now only four because I really need moving memes in my life and in my photo album, please consider letting us save gifs again. I know I may sound silly but I’m really upset that I can’t save them anymore and I found my favorite meme on gif recently and I can’t save it no more so I beg you, please let us save gifs again, but if theirs a new feature we’re you can save it but just have to click something different then please tell me :(
Very Irritating – No need for update at all
by Kkgdsaqyibcrewqashlu on 2020/07/09 17:00
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.
Normally I adore this app
by Snuffalugfagous on 2017/12/22 02:07
However, it's super irritating with this current version, that I can't play messenger games with people without it looking like I have an unread message from each individual because either them or I have made a move in the game. App badges would be enough for me, within the application. Separate the games notifications from the messenge notifications please! Badges on the game tab and that's it would be super nice. If I want to play games I'll go over there. But I'm actually losing messages in all these integrated game notifications... Also still having an issue with messenger not allowing me to continue typing a message when the phone is rotated. The whole app freezes and I am forced to close or send a half typed message. Many times this happens and it was not intentional at all. A fix would be fantastic. Currently functioning off iOS 11.2.1 on the 7plus.
Update is absolutely terrible
by Kerri_B_ on 2020/05/15 17:34
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!!
New update very upsetting
by not-a-mouse on 2020/03/01 04:31
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.
Bugs in New Update
by DECEM13ER on 2020/04/16 15:50
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?
I hate messenger now
by Grumpy gypsy on 2020/02/08 15:45
I used to love using messenger because it kept me connected to my family but not now. Since FB changed it’s requirement to use Messenger I no longer am able to connect with the most important person in my life. There are extremely important reasons they don’t have FB. Safety being the most important one. FB only cares about it’s bottom line. Did not think about the ones who use messenger only because of the type of job they have. Those in law enforcement, military members and others who work for our country. I am ashamed I will still need to use messenger to stay connected to the rest of my family. But I will not encourage anyone to join FB. Now I am researching other messaging apps. By the way, my most important person had messenger before you made the change and getting any help with this issue is non existent. FB does not care about the people that use it. Thanks for screwing up my communication with someone I love very much FB. That’s sarcasm in case you don’t recognize it.
Messaging is Good, Calling Isn’t
by lilmarbles on 2018/03/21 05:31
The messaging with FB friends is pretty good. I like that you can customize individual chats and I enjoy the sound effects in the app. It’s a really good way to stay in touch with far away friends & family. I don’t always get notifications when I receive a new message though. I’m not a fan of the call/video chat feature. Calls are often dropped, the sound/call quality is awful. Video chat is really choppy. A lot of the video calls are spent “connecting” so all you see is a black screen , but at least you can still talk to the other person while this is going on. This app isn’t too bad , it works better than the Facebook app itself in my opinion. It’s a good way to stay connected and talking to old friends. I recommend using it if you got Facebook.
Explain please
by Sinnamyn on 2020/02/21 02:48
I used to be able to get to the “other” folder but now that is gone. Please redo this and fix because many messages get filtered and now I can’t get those. Long time user. **EDIT** I found this setting finally. One last thing that would be a great addition is to give us the option to remain hidden. I don’t want everyone knowing I’m online. I have active turned off and I can’t see who is active but the ones who have active on can still see me. Also it would be nice to have an option that doesn’t show its read. Sometimes I can’t reply in a timely fashion and it leaves the person thinking I don’t care enough to respond. Yes I can mark it as unread but they can see it’s been read. My main suggestions. Thank you so much
Why! Why!! Why!!!
by Metal Vault Manga on 2018/09/09 00:21
Only three stars and here is why. First the good. Messaging and sending photos is it’s strong points. I have had zero problems with doing either and if I were to rate solely based on the two it would receive five stars. However, the actual calling is for me what hurts the app the most. Annoying doesn’t even begin to explain my feelings towards that particular feature. I have yet to get or to make an actual call, as to where, the call doesn’t take it upon itself to just end. I don’t know if it’s just on my end but I suspect not. It doesn’t seem to make a difference from where it ordinates the result is the same. Call abruptly ends for no reason and then you are asked to rate the call. HAHAHAHA!! What a joke. Instant one star and not even deserving of the one. So again the messaging and photo sending are excellent, the calling function not so much.
Fixed: A annoying glitch
by ToasterWife on 2018/02/01 05:36
Edit: hey you fixed it, nice. Typing on iPad is pain still layout wise but it works. Messenger usually works well on my iPhone no issues what so ever, in this case for an odd reason it doesn’t want to type I’ll begin typing “Hey I’m” and it doesn’t let me type afterwards. I have no idea why this occurring but I hope I’m not alone, I use this app to talk to friends and talk about homework and junk— this is a real pain and honestly a bad move on the team’s part for not checking before sending this update out. This could’ve honestly been fixed or avoided if they checked this before releasing it, I trust on the team a lot and will always update on day one. You’re making me regret this honestly, y’all just giving me trust issues
Doesn’t work at ALL on the Apple Watch
by Mr. Thoughtful on 2020/06/09 21:14
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.

Secret messages
by Concerened Spouse on 2020/07/14 12:34
I don’t understand why Facebook messenger allows secret messages that’s just ridiculous! It allows many people to hide things from their spouses. I think that that should not be allowed. There’s no reason to hide things, if you don’t want people to see something then don’t send it. Please End this feature! Thank you!

We/I should be able to choose the featured friends like the featured pictures. Please consider my remarks because I’m very unhappy about the so-called friends you chose for me. Thank you.

HACKERS ALL OVER
by Forrizzleandshuzzle on 2020/07/14 03:01
It’s insane to think this app has good reviews. So many of my friends have been hacked just from using this app. Random people will message you and if you tap on their name to see who they are BAM your hacked. They threatened my brother trying to blackmail him. And I’ve heard so many stories of people getting hacked on this messaging app it’s not worth the risk just text people or literally anything else. Don’t take the risk

by WM vendor on 2020/07/13 21:21
I am getting sick of some of these updates defaulting my on-line status to “active.” I do not need folks to see when I am active. If I want to reach out to them, I will. No need for you to. Very disheartening. Quit messing with it, please
Messenger isn’t working!!!
by WildKnitter on 2020/07/13 21:11
As of 7/13/2020, my iPhone Messenger app isn’t loading ANY of my data! I can access Facebook and Messenger through the Safari browser just fine, and nothing’s missing. However, I have no data in the app. It’s the same thing with Facebook!
I had a virus sent to me through messenger link.
by Vampireprince161718 on 2020/07/13 20:33
Is there a way to scan the app to make sure the virus is gone because it took over my phone and I had to change all my information. It was originally sent through Facebook messenger.

Tired of it crashing
by D14m0nd qu33n on 2020/07/13 19:29
I'm really tired of messenger crashing while I'm writing when I get another message in, or crashing just because I opened it. It's really pissing me off. Crashing on my iPhone 7 AND on my new iPad. Anybody have a fix?????? Don't tell me to uninstall and reinstall. That helps for a day. I don't want a bandaid; I expect the company to fix the issue.

Why I love this
by smallhands1 on 2020/07/13 19:12
Ok so when I got a iPod I was like I can every thing with this like text and I got messenger it is so good to text but I can not make my icon anything anymore after a update but it is one of the best apps I have ever got and the calls are ok I call my dad a lot and sometimes it is good and sometime it is bad it goes like that but over all it is a really good app 👌🏻
Update prevents messenger from opening
by Ninni Angela sue on 2020/07/13 18:50
Ever since I updated this last update I can not open any games or messages in messenger, I never had problems till that update, I can’t read my messages or respond, this is so aggravating and now it’s useless to me, I have group messages blowing up my phone and I can not even get in to leave the groups, I read so many bad reviews about update and it forcing the update and I didn’t want to do update and it forced the update and exactly what they were saying is what happened now to me, I also found out my account has been hacked and face book has done nothing, they didn’t ever advise me, a family friend had too and now my private and personal info has been compromise, this is unbelievable I tell you
Dissapointed!
by tiaigt on 2020/07/13 18:20

Keeps crashing
by zon00b on 2020/07/13 18:00
I don’t know if this had anything to do with the update, but it keeps crashing. Like, if I click on the app it shows me my messages and the screen goes black and brings me to the home screen. It’s really annoying. Also, when I’m calling someone, it will sometimes crash and it ends the call and doesn’t let me back in to Messenger. I’ve tried restarting my phone, but it won’t work. I think it might just be my device, because I don’t think anyone else is experiencing this. Will change my review if this gets fixed.
NFL Redskin name change
by Lillygirl1960 on 2020/07/13 17:05
To whom it may concern, I have been watching your station for years and today on your noon show 7/13/20 your anchor Marty Bass made a insulting statement about the name change of my team Washington Redskins. He said that the team name should be changed to the Washington possums cause they stink and they get killed on the road. I know this station is a Ravens station but there are a lot of Redskin fans that ARE sensitive to this subject. Hope you don’t get a flashback from this ststement.

by Romani1977 on 2020/07/13 12:06
With the amount of money you people put into your tech you’d think at some point in the history of Facebook and now Instagram you’d have a handle on the notifications. Once messages are checked those little red dots and check marks should disappear.

Make “Message Requests” visible.
by theJericho on 2020/07/13 10:43
A lot of people don’t know that “Message Requests” feature exists. Accidentally discovered it while using FB on desktop and I had a lot of legitimate messages waiting for replies. Could you please add this as a tab in FB Messenger?

I wish there will be an update where you can get notified when someone is online. Like a bestfriend for example, name is online. Something like that
People who are not friends are seen online
by Boom2018 on 2020/07/13 00:27
That’s annoying and they should fix this in the app. The problem that you can see people online you ever exchanged messages with and who are NOT on your friends list, have existed for a long time at least on iPhones. It’s impossible to mute them.
Word Suggestions
by PercyDovetonsils on 2020/07/12 23:49
The new version auto-installed yesterday, and now the app no longer offers word suggestions when typing. This is a large step backward, especially when texting in foreign languages. This is one of the primary reasons I use this app, and I hope there’s an update to correct this in the near future.

ATTENTION IMPROVEMENT NEEDED DESPERATELY!!
by LindaLou505 on 2020/07/12 17:47
I would give this app 5 stars but there is A few things preventing me from doing that and that is that you can’t delete several conversations at one time, you have to delete each one individually. I was recently hacked and over 200 of my friends were sent horrible disgusting videos of pornography and my inbox is full of these messages. I have to delete each and everyone of them one at a time when I should have an option to click on all of them and delete at one time. It is gonna take me a while to delete each and everyone of them and this is extremely frustrating. It surprises me that y’all don’t have that option available as this kind of option is available on most all kinds of messaging apps, and in the meantime I have to scroll forever to get to conversations with my friends that I talk to on a regular basis. Another thing I am so sick of messages that say forward this to so many people even me! The majority of these messages are made from hackers and it’s how they are able to hack your account. Why does Facebook allow this???? It has happened to me 3 times and it’s extremely hard to recover your account. Facebook makes it hard. You shouldn’t allow those kinds of messages at all especially when you know what happens. If I wanna forward a message I will on my own. So annoyed with Facebook and messenger. I am also SICK AND TIRED OF THINGS I SEND TO FRIENDS OR THEY SEND TO ME ALL OF A SUDDEN BEING REMOVED BECAUSE YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT AND DONT LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY OR BECAUSE YOU DONT WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON LIKE WITH THIS COVID-19. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO MONITOR MY CONVERSATIONS WHENEVER YOU WANT TO. YOU WILL TAKE THESE KINDS OF THINGS DOWN BUT WILL ALLOW HACKERS TO SEND OUT THOSE DISGUSTING PORN VIDEOS OUT TO EVERYONE BUT WONT TAKE THEM DOWN. FACEBOOK YOU ARE DISGUSTING. THAT IS AN INVASION OF MY PRIVACY AND THATS AGAINST THE LAW SO YOU IN MY OPINION AND A FACT YOU ARE A CRIMINAL. I ALSO SHOULDN’T HAVE TO HAVE YOUR MESSENGER APP IN ORDER TO TALK TO FRIENDS ON FB. PUT THE MESSAGES BACK TO FACEBOOK FOR THOSE OF US THAT DO NOT WANT TO USE YOUR APP ANYMORE BECAUSE OF YOUR HORRIBLE SECURITY. I AM SURE YOU WONT DO ANYTHING BECAUSE YOU NEVER DO AND FROM READING ALL THESE HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS FROM OTHERS JUST PROVES THIS. Why have feedback if your not gonna listen to the public’s complaints against you. If you think people won’t find other social networks where they are more respected and leave Facebook and messenger then you are really dumb and stupid. There are way to many out there available. FACEBOOK HAS GOTTEN WAY TO HIGH AND MIGHTY AND YOU GIYS NEED TO REMEMBER HOW YOU GOT SO SUCCESSFUL..... BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE US WHO ARE LODGING COMPLAINTS AGAINST YOU NOW!!! If they all start leaving...... YOU WILL BE NOTHING AGAIN. As for myself, I will be leaving messenger and finding a new messenger app and most likely a new social network if things do not change NOW!!!! TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED IN FACEBOOK AND ITS CREATORS!!!!
🤨
by Nayla :) on 2020/07/12 17:27

Frequently Breaks
by claidheamdanns on 2020/07/12 13:14
This app frequently breaks. It will show unread messages in Facebook, but when I click on the link it opens Messenger and there are no unread messages. The only way to fix it is to delete the app and reinstall it. Then it shows an unread message, and when it goes to Messenger it’s a message which I had already read.

by Loudiloo on 2020/07/12 00:13
I don't know why they removed the sharing screen option in the last update. On Android it's a spec that never changed. Such a stupid decision. Who needs a room where he can't share a screen. Long live Zoom.
Suggestions!
by AmansCraftYT on 2020/07/11 22:32
This app is absolutely amazing when it comes to messaging! But it lacks some features, such as text customization (bold, italic), maybe pinned messages in chats? These are only two suggestions, but I think they’ll fit great into the app.

by vudu920 on 2020/07/11 13:19
For some reason, whenever I get a message, I'll open the app, click on the friend that sent it, them start to respond, and I get booted to my friends list. Then I'll try again, and it'll work until I either finish, or they respond before I finish, or get another message. Then I lose everything I typed, and get forced back to my friends list. What is going on???

I have a suggestion
by Gshot2002 on 2020/05/08 06:55
This is a pretty good app in my opinion! I use it 24/7 to talk to my friends. I use it more than my phone’s built in texting app. I love that you’re able to video chat with people, see if they’re active, and you can personalize the chat a little bit. The biggest complaint I have though is that you can’t delete images from the photos and videos section of the chat’s settings. You can only delete those things from the actual conversation. This is bothersome to me because I talk a lot to my friends and if I want to go back and delete some old images, I’m unable to because they’re too far up in older conversations. I also can’t search my conversations anymore because it always bugs out. It won’t load the conversations and then after that, the app won’t work at all. If you could take these things into consideration, especially the deleting suggestion, then I would very much appreciate it! Otherwise though, this is my #1 messaging app!
Voice recording
by MihaiLH on 2020/05/07 18:41
Regarding the voice recording option...I have noticed for a while, specifically after an update I was forced to make, that I cannot scroll the window while recording, otherwise all that I've recorded dissapears, and I have to start over again. My question is...why can't you follow the same pattern whatsApp has and actually keep the recording option visible and available while scrolling up and down, without any issues? And also, when and if I lock the screen, the recording should be paused and not lost, again, something that on whatsApp you've managed to make it work, but not for Facebook Messenger. It's very frustrating and primitive, as I'm wasting a lot of time trying to deliver a vocal message. Another important lack of utility is the absence of a cursor while listening to a voice recording, as I'm not able to move back or forward the message, so If I need to listen again a certain part of it, I can't, but instead I have to start from the beginning and wait until I get to that part again. And why am I not notified when the recording is over? I could keep talking and have no ideea it's not recording anymore. So, my review for your latest updates would be ZERO, if I could select this kind of rate. You are not improving the application, you are making it worse!
Glitches
by Hg52 on 2020/06/02 19:56
#1: when I’m typing a reply to one of my friends and someone messages me simultaneously, it closes me out of the conversation and erases all of what I had written and just brings me back to my inbox and it’s really frustrating because it happens every single time and always seems to happen when I’m typing long messages and then I have to start all over. PLEASE FIX ASAP!! Cause I just wanna use a different app to talk to my friends now but would prefer not to! This has been a thing for 2-3 weeks now and hasn’t changed even though I update it every time I get the chance to. Just downloaded the update for today so I’ll see if that makes any difference, but I highly doubt it because the update didn’t list anything about bug fixes. #2: this glitch just stared happening yesterday (June 1st, 2020) where I haven’t been getting notifications for new messages. I made sure to check my notifications were on in my settings, which they were, but my friend sent me a message at 9am and didn’t get it until 2:50pm. So please fix, again, this is very frustrating and I don’t want people to get mad at me and think that I’m ignoring them when I’m not. I hope you read this and can do something about it, please and thank you.
New Update is Trash, Useless (iOS)
by Lady Ash A. on 2020/04/04 12:57
The new update is absolutely disgusting. It makes this app not only visibly unappealing, but the new UI is hard to use, foolhardy, and removes many useful features. I also keep having problems with crashing. The new online/offline status is buggy and gets stuck. Phone calls are buggy too and stopped displaying properly. Messages can no longer be easily copied, deleted or forwarded. The old menu was easier. I preferred the swipe reply feature. Messages are no longer easy to reply to in notifications either. Pictures are not easy to send. I used to like this app because of the little unique things like the old cute reactions, chat colors, and balloons and hearts that you could catch. Now, they are all gone. I used to love using stickers, but the system is all messed up now as your most recent stickers and the packs are harder to find. I do not like the excess spacing between packs either. I am not exaggerating to say that I hate this new update. I have recommended that people do not update if they still have an older version. Many of my friends have agreed with me and say that this new version glitchy, problematic, and ugly. I have stopped using it as much because it is useless now. What did you do to this app?
The Fall of Facebook Messenger
by Game Center!!!! on 2020/06/01 03:18
When I was younger, I was introduced to Facebook Messenger by a friend. I am still rather young, and Facebook isn’t a commonly used social media amongst people of my age. Facebook Messenger, however, rapidly proved itself to be the greatest messaging app I had ever used. Everything from the themes, to polls, to games, to the overall feel of the app made it the go-to choice for both private messaging and group chats. Every update seemed to make it better. That is, until a few months ago, when a big update hit Messenger. Games were removed, along with polls, the ability to inflate the chat emoji, and the usability of the app. This app has become unusable. After only minutes of use, sending and receiving messages slows to a crawl. It is near impossible to have a proper conversation as messages take multiple minutes to send. Facebook doesn’t seem to care. With each update, I pray that Messenger returns back to its original state, its former glory. Until that day comes, I have no choice but to use other, inferior messaging services when I do not have access to a computer. I’m sad. I’m sad that the once great Messenger has fallen so far from what it used to be. Please, Zucky, please tell the Messenger team that they must fix their app. I beg of you.
New update is horrible
by RbkhWllc on 2020/06/17 02:05
Facebook and messenger are always changing. The new messenger updates are less than desirable. For some unknown reason when I have a message from marketplace and delete it, it still keeps the marketplace folder in my chats, even though there are no messages in it. Before, when you’d delete all the marketplace messages, the folder would also disappear from your chat list. I had to uninstall and reinstall the app to make it go away. Then it happened again today, except now it not only is keeping the folder in my chats, it’s saying there’s still an unread message in it when there are zero messages in the folder. Seems minor, but I like my chats cleaned up, so the fact that it no longer goes away is rather annoying. Also, could we stop constantly changing where “spam/other/message requests” go? Why can’t you just make it a more accessible option and leave it? We shouldn’t have to go hunt for the folder and this last update completely moved where they are found, to the point that initially I thought message requests were just going to be a thing of the past. Rarely are the updates good, and it’s clear others agree. Unfortunate!
Please Do This !!!!!
by Lori_Green on 2020/03/28 09:32
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.
New Update is Absolutely Horrible
by bfstkkbbdsrhkmnbbf on 2020/02/24 02:42
The title seems harsh, but you need to know how bad this update is. It’s annoying that the texting screen has to be full screen the whole time, and I also hate that you stopped including the cool things with emojis. My friend and I liked sending the balloon emoji, and it would send balloons all over the screen. With my mom, I’d send a heart and make it really big. Both of those features are removed now, because you want the app to be easier for “business purposes?” Seriously? It was never meant for that, and, let’s be honest, most people would use Messages anyway. The majority of people on the app just want to enjoy the app by texting their friends and family, and now you got rid of things that made the app unique. I really liked Messenger, but you had to waste it by updating like this. Please, please just leave it how it was. I would talk about some other more “important” issues, but there are other reviews too, like how you have to have a phone number now to text. I don’t know how this update can help. I sound rude here, but I want you to take the time to read my review and consider what I said. Thanks for reading.
Stop making unnecessary changes
by yasmine725 on 2020/03/01 02:28
Cmon people. Seriously stop with the completely unnecessary changes. You did not have to change the bubble where you could see if the person viewed your message or not without opening the chat. Also I want to see if the message has sent or not without opening the chat also. I don’t want to have to open the chat and check every individual person to see these things. Not to mention the way you send photos is so annoying now, before it was much easier. Also, it’s annoying how to press copy and remove message. You guys did not make any changes that helped me in any way and it’s frustrating and longer especially the way the stickers are set up. Whoever designs these things, should be fired. I prefer the version from many months ago, where I could find the games and so forth. You all need to stop making stupid updates when there is literally no need to make anyone’s life more complicated. No one likes it, especially all the people I talk to. Messenger keeps getting worse and worse every single update. I wish I could go back to a year ago, because that was the best version.
Fair review.
by Kacey2017 on 2020/04/09 23:35
I feel as if that app deserved 3 stars from using it a few days. I’ve had it on other phone but I just recently started using it again on this one. I gave it a 3 because there is no option to voice chat with more than 1 person. I feel as if the time is getting near that this app should have that feature to out do competitors. Discord has a voice chat that allows more than 1 person to join and I think that they are below this app. Please add that feature. If you do, I will be willing to give it a 5 star rating. I like that you can have a group text chat but voice allowing multiple people is better for those who want to have prayer with more than one person. If you are a developer reading this, please respond to me to let me know you were interested in my feedback and please recommend to your higher up. Please reassure him I am willing to give this app a 5 star rating if they add a voice chat that allows multiple people to join. Bless all who read these words.
Staple features removed and NOW breaking bugs
by AlexN.64-Bit on 2020/04/09 02:15
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 🤔
Nice update the app is cleaner and faster
by A_M_J_95 on 2020/03/03 07:41
I can’t believe you finally removed all the trash that was bloating this app ,now finally the app looks like a messaging app which how it should’ve looked since the beginning, unfortunately as cool as the app looks right now I think this change has came in too late ,well for me at least because I don’t recall the last time I actually used messenger to message someone and every person I know has move away to using other apps that provided a better and cleaner experience that what messenger used to offer for the past years ,now I’m not hating here no in fact i hope people get back to using it because it’s just more convenient than other apps especially now that it’s simple and clean but I’m just saying it’s kinda late and I’m afraid people have gotten used to the other apps but we’ll see about that...
New update is total garbage
by cat1122334321 on 2020/02/29 04:51
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
by licialowoke :) on 2020/03/29 21:30
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.
Why update it to make it worse?
by igrimReaper on 2020/05/08 19:09
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
by Grobo555 on 2020/03/15 03:55
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.
Why not Apple CarPlay like messages has
by Jeff horn on 2020/01/22 21:50
Hello how is everyone doing? I’m wondering why messenger isn’t up to date with everyone else. I’m sure others have the same thoughts, A lot of individuals use this service to call and message others along with maps people send others when they are trying to meet and for products and merchandise just for an example. Why can we not have this app sync with our vehicles like the phone and messages app that Apple have in place. This would be a very nice update to an increasingly popular app. Not only that, but it would make us, yes even yourselves safer on the road. After all isn’t that what we all strive for, I know your users strive for this on a daily basis. Please if you would, look into this. I for one drive a very huge truck 2016 F350 dually FX 4 lifted & oversized tires for work purposes. I am a safety officer so I especially know safety is of the utmost concern no matter what we do as a society. I for one love my Sync3 system and would love to be able to use it to keep us all a little safer.
New update looks really bad
by smarchetti on 2019/01/30 10:51
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.
Pointless
by Silverramette on 2018/01/16 04:29
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.
what happened???
by NiaNicole1992 on 2020/05/28 13:52
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
by dashcraft11 on 2020/05/21 20:44
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.
Not Horrible but Has Issues
by Tambri62 on 2019/02/12 15:12
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.
Somewhat an annoyance
by Wolf of Flame on 2019/12/11 14:53
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.
Great but definitely could be better!
by Obsessed w/ makeup on 2017/12/17 08:05
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. :)
Newest Update
by J.Angeles on 2018/11/19 13:19
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
by unicornnnk on 2018/06/15 05:38
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.
Post iOS 11.0.3 issues
by eva_joes on 2017/11/03 03:10
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.
What happened?
by LSCKBS on 2020/04/29 05:38
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.
Notification alarm
by Babystego on 2020/03/30 05:46
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.
Very poor job with this one.
by Shackelton326 on 2020/06/05 00:40
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 updates seem like downgrades
by jec00k on 2020/03/03 18:38
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.
I’m really upset
by victoriannaxo on 2020/03/06 07:20
All of my messages from the past hour have been deleted. The chat color changes sporadically. One day it’s blue. The next day it’s back to the gradient hue. And then back again. Nicknames get deleted, mixed up from other groups I’m in, and then goes back to the persons regular name. I can’t see if my friends have read my messages, I can’t see whose online, and I can’t send new messages to people. Sometimes this works?? And then disappears again. The cute chat feature that I use with my boyfriend where the emoji blows up to a bigger size, no longer works. I can’t send stickers, and I can’t use any other apps while in a call or the call drops. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship and it’s our primary source of texting, calling, video chat, and now it barely works. What happened?? The app goes from functional for a few hours, I close it out, then everything is gone. I’ve turned off my phone, closed out the app, and even deleted it and reinstalled and nothing has changed. I’m so sad.
Update please fix!
by AlexisPR87 on 2020/02/25 21:40
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!
Disable messenger so we don’t have to use it with Facebook
by grandmas home on 2019/07/28 14:10
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!!!!!!
Bad new update
by Takastrapi on 2020/03/07 06:55
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.
Facebook messenger need to pickup the pace
by DIGBYS XPAND on 2018/08/20 20:02
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.
Message Requests
by P'od user on 2018/05/07 05:47
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.
Very good but....
by woof user on 2020/02/24 01:31
Messenger is a good app and I like to talk and connect with people on the app. And the sticker feature I really like since you can pick from a wide variety of different things. But the thing I recently hated about messenger is that I can no longer save gifs that I send to my friends or anyone, and I used to be able to do that and I would give a five star rating then, but now only four because I really need moving memes in my life and in my photo album, please consider letting us save gifs again. I know I may sound silly but I’m really upset that I can’t save them anymore and I found my favorite meme on gif recently and I can’t save it no more so I beg you, please let us save gifs again, but if theirs a new feature we’re you can save it but just have to click something different then please tell me :(
Very Irritating – No need for update at all
by Kkgdsaqyibcrewqashlu on 2020/07/09 17:00
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.
Normally I adore this app

However, it's super irritating with this current version, that I can't play messenger games with people without it looking like I have an unread message from each individual because either them or I have made a move in the game. App badges would be enough for me, within the application. Separate the games notifications from the messenge notifications please! Badges on the game tab and that's it would be super nice. If I want to play games I'll go over there. But I'm actually losing messages in all these integrated game notifications... Also still having an issue with messenger not allowing me to continue typing a message when the phone is rotated. The whole app freezes and I am forced to close or send a half typed message. Many times this happens and it was not intentional at all. A fix would be fantastic. Currently functioning off iOS 11.2.1 on the 7plus.
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!!
New update very upsetting
by not-a-mouse on 2020/03/01 04:31
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.
Bugs in New Update
by DECEM13ER on 2020/04/16 15:50
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?
I hate messenger now
by Grumpy gypsy on 2020/02/08 15:45
I used to love using messenger because it kept me connected to my family but not now. Since FB changed it’s requirement to use Messenger I no longer am able to connect with the most important person in my life. There are extremely important reasons they don’t have FB. Safety being the most important one. FB only cares about it’s bottom line. Did not think about the ones who use messenger only because of the type of job they have. Those in law enforcement, military members and others who work for our country. I am ashamed I will still need to use messenger to stay connected to the rest of my family. But I will not encourage anyone to join FB. Now I am researching other messaging apps. By the way, my most important person had messenger before you made the change and getting any help with this issue is non existent. FB does not care about the people that use it. Thanks for screwing up my communication with someone I love very much FB. That’s sarcasm in case you don’t recognize it.
Messaging is Good, Calling Isn’t
by lilmarbles on 2018/03/21 05:31
The messaging with FB friends is pretty good. I like that you can customize individual chats and I enjoy the sound effects in the app. It’s a really good way to stay in touch with far away friends & family. I don’t always get notifications when I receive a new message though. I’m not a fan of the call/video chat feature. Calls are often dropped, the sound/call quality is awful. Video chat is really choppy. A lot of the video calls are spent “connecting” so all you see is a black screen , but at least you can still talk to the other person while this is going on. This app isn’t too bad , it works better than the Facebook app itself in my opinion. It’s a good way to stay connected and talking to old friends. I recommend using it if you got Facebook.
Explain please

I used to be able to get to the “other” folder but now that is gone. Please redo this and fix because many messages get filtered and now I can’t get those. Long time user. **EDIT** I found this setting finally. One last thing that would be a great addition is to give us the option to remain hidden. I don’t want everyone knowing I’m online. I have active turned off and I can’t see who is active but the ones who have active on can still see me. Also it would be nice to have an option that doesn’t show its read. Sometimes I can’t reply in a timely fashion and it leaves the person thinking I don’t care enough to respond. Yes I can mark it as unread but they can see it’s been read. My main suggestions. Thank you so much
Why! Why!! Why!!!
by Metal Vault Manga on 2018/09/09 00:21
Only three stars and here is why. First the good. Messaging and sending photos is it’s strong points. I have had zero problems with doing either and if I were to rate solely based on the two it would receive five stars. However, the actual calling is for me what hurts the app the most. Annoying doesn’t even begin to explain my feelings towards that particular feature. I have yet to get or to make an actual call, as to where, the call doesn’t take it upon itself to just end. I don’t know if it’s just on my end but I suspect not. It doesn’t seem to make a difference from where it ordinates the result is the same. Call abruptly ends for no reason and then you are asked to rate the call. HAHAHAHA!! What a joke. Instant one star and not even deserving of the one. So again the messaging and photo sending are excellent, the calling function not so much.
Fixed: A annoying glitch
by ToasterWife on 2018/02/01 05:36
Edit: hey you fixed it, nice. Typing on iPad is pain still layout wise but it works. Messenger usually works well on my iPhone no issues what so ever, in this case for an odd reason it doesn’t want to type I’ll begin typing “Hey I’m” and it doesn’t let me type afterwards. I have no idea why this occurring but I hope I’m not alone, I use this app to talk to friends and talk about homework and junk— this is a real pain and honestly a bad move on the team’s part for not checking before sending this update out. This could’ve honestly been fixed or avoided if they checked this before releasing it, I trust on the team a lot and will always update on day one. You’re making me regret this honestly, y’all just giving me trust issues
Doesn’t work at ALL on the Apple Watch
by Mr. Thoughtful on 2020/06/09 21:14
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.
