I was wondering why when I see if someone is Active it won’t ultimately let me see that until I send them a message and then it says they were active 60min who!!! I give. This app five stars. BOOM!!!!!!
Stupid
by nursepeaches on 2019/02/17 15:32
It is extremely stupid to have install a totally separate app when messaging was working just fine before this. Just a pointless waste of space.

Worthless
by Spinster 9 on 2019/02/17 13:27
I get notices that I have a message, and there is no message. It’s hard to understand. I unintentionally sent a message because the app is difficult to use. I think Facebook messaging is a waste of time; quite annoying. I just deleted the app.

Active Status
by kukush17 on 2019/02/17 10:23
The Active status doesn’t show for some contacts. I text my boyfriend the most and his active status or how many minutes ago he was online does now show up but the friends that I rarely text theirs shows up. Not only him, some contact don’t have status showing how many minutes ago they were online.

I don’t like it it keeps changing back to the old version of it keep as the new update not the old it’s making me mad😡😡😡
No more messenger for me, I guess.
by 5719432 on 2019/02/17 03:18
Well, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it ! I HAD messenger. It worked perfect, easy to use. But apparently someone thought it needed changing, and its changed ! I will not read and sign a 16 page agreement, so I guess no more messenger for me. 🤔
Effects
by odo3068 on 2019/02/17 01:32
Why did you change the way the effects work? Literally that’s so stupid. Why would I take the picture AND THEN FIND AN EFFECT? And it doesn’t always work.. like I’ll take a picture and the effect button isn’t even an option. And there was no instruction or notif that this happened so I tried to find the effects for 10 minutes. It’s a stupid “update” and I would much rather have the old effects back.
Another Facebook manipulation
by DaveCPUA on 2019/02/17 01:29
There are fewer more annoying and criminal companies than Facebook. I’m forced to download this app in lieu of FB messenger on their main site. I’m not pleased about it, since FB will try sell my data to others but some people in other countries are hard to reach and my hand has been forced. I will be deleting this app ASAP!
I love this app
by LeaKitty1 on 2019/02/17 01:27

Memory hog/ updates do not allow ap to work
by Countrygal58 on 2019/02/17 00:04
Can not understand why we can't be informed of what the updates contain. The last 3 updates have been horrible! Memory hog!!! With this latest update, constant crashes and can not connect. What started out as a great ap has now just become frustrating.
can’t archive!No access to message requests

Annoying
by Ellen234 on 2019/02/16 18:56
What’s with when tapping to go into the app it immediately opens a message from someone? I should just be able to click on the app and it open to show all my messages. Not immediately open one of them for me to reply too. Pissing me off.
Update all the time
by Crackhead101 on 2019/02/16 17:50
I hate that you have to keep updating this app
Ruined
by ytu8754 on 2019/02/16 16:44
New app update forces you to stay on platform for everything. Want to share a video link outside of messenger? Can’t. Someone send you funny Facebook post you want to scroll through? Can’t. Great job pursing on platform $ lurking instead of focusing on customer experience!
New message requests not showing up
by ElisabettaAngelos on 2019/02/16 15:19
Ever since the update new message requests are not showing up in my folder. I’m very active in buy, sell, and trade groups and this poses a HUGE problem for everyone buying and selling. Please fix this ASAP!

Turn screen off on call
by sujaydutta on 2019/02/16 13:03
When we are talking using this, please turn the screen off like regular iPhone calls. Otherwise sometimes other people get added to the conversation or camera or speaker gets turned on when the ear touches some of the controls on the active screen.

Constant problems
by Beejebe on 2019/02/16 08:50
I have an iPhone 8. Ever since loading the newest version of Messenger have had one problem after another. It won’t work with YouTube when wanting to share a video or Etsy. It constantly gets the red explanation point when trying to send a file from Instagram. I have erased and reinstalled numerous times- no success. This is the same thing that happened at the last update. My friend is having similar issues. I hope you can fix this because I miss it.!
Bug-bug-buggy
by JaxxiePoo on 2019/02/16 08:37

Newest Update is Awful
by JGunter8912 on 2019/02/16 06:15
The newest update attempted to “simplify” the chat but it makes other features even more difficult to find. Forget seeing any message requests, they’re either gone or so deeply hidden you’re going to need a masters degree just to find it. The new colors cause some chats to glitch and disappear. You’re also getting adds direct to your inbox now. It feels like the “better” the developers try to make this app, the worse it gets and the less control you have over the features you may not like. Unfortunately, if you want to message someone on Facebook, you’re going to need this app. Since a majority of my friends and family are out of state and move frequently, I’m going to have to deal with this issue until they decide to get Instagram or Snapchat.

I want privacy to be online
by Math Chef on 2019/02/16 02:46
I want to be able to turn off the notifications showing if I’m online and how long since I’ve been online. This is a safety flaw. I also want to turn off voice and video chat. I am thinking of deleting fb entirely just to get rid of messenger.

You Should Not Force The Update!
by Titonitri on 2019/02/15 17:23
What if I didn't have memory space? Should I no longer use Messenger until I bought a new phone?
Thoroughly impressed.
by ReviewerNickname1 on 2019/02/15 16:42
I still won’t comment on the bloated size of the app. Or that you STILL can't access Photo Stream pictures from inside the app to send. But I’m actually impressed with how they have cleaned up the GUI in this latest update. It is not super cluttered and distracting anymore. Nicely laid out and spaced, pleasant to look at. I am using an iPad tho, so I can’t comment on the iPhone version. I won’t be installing it there, as I know it will not be optimized for smaller screens (and I have a 4” SE). Either way, you’re on the right track Facebook! Keep it lean, mean, and clean.
wasteful app just use text app

by angry customer paid on 2019/02/15 14:58
Screw all you people leaving good reviews, you are what is wrong in the world accepting a garbage product and letting them perpetuate their trash, why do we still need multiple apps to access different features of facebook? More data use on our part, more work on our part, but your company profits. When are the updates going to stop so i can save some space on my phone? Are we really that dumbed down of a society now that we just accept all his crap subpar work that is passed onto us as the finished polished product, already apple has screwed us with updates that take all our phone space, now what can we look forward too? The app to be buggy and crap constantly even with all the YEARS of updates. Wow idiocracy is truly becoming a reality
Missing masks
by Girlfriendal on 2019/02/15 14:49
With the latest update my ability to do those fun Snapchat style masks with photos has vanished. It only seems to remain for video calls. I tried to search for information on the App help and it didn't even recognize the word mask or photo filters. This was one of my favors features. I am extremely disappointed to see this is gone.

by Jusree on 2019/02/15 13:55
This app is CRAP!!! Let’s start off with why it’s separated from Facebook(bring this back)? The annoying messenger calls when my number isn’t listed on the app, i mean, if i wanted to get calls from people, i should have confirmed my number, so there really isn’t any privacy or discretion, like how do the developers of this app not follow up on the many complaints and do something to make us all feel good. I am complaining! I can’t delete my messages, it won’t let me, let’s see, then there is the annoying indicator on the app that shows i have messages, when i open the app up, ha, there’s no messages, come on guys, let’s do better!
Getting worse with every update
by Donnies Ipad on 2019/02/15 12:51
So now you cannot delete the zillion contacts this app bombards you with. It has every person of every person that has ever commented or looked at every persons on my friends list posts. I hate having all these unknown people in my contacts. Some of them their names are spelled with symbols.Ridiculous to constantly be bombarded with possible contacts, if I wanted them there I would ask for them. This messenger is just more spy ware and clock bait. Deleting it now.

Hate Forcing Use of App
by DeBiKin on 2019/02/15 07:23
The app is adequate but was happy accessing it through FB. Since forced to use install Messenger app just to clear the FB red notification I now have to leave FB and then have the additional battery sucking app running. To make matters even worse, the app brags about constantly updating as if that's a good (time consuming, memory sucking) thing. I hate constantly updating! I might as well delete the app and reinstall it every time I get a message. When I want to message people, texting is my preferred form of messaging. To make this app even worse, now it puts the damned red button by games that will never clear because I will never click on the stupid things. Hate hate hate!!!

Still unable to install on my 4th Generation iPad. Very disappointed!
New update lost a feature
by j_tuck on 2019/02/15 04:09
It makes me mad that the new update didn't carry over the support for 3D touch. A way that I daily used to quickly look at messages and mark them as read at the same time is now no longer. I'm not sure if this was on purpose or just forgotten, but I really hope that it gets corrected in the future.

Version 202.0 crashes every time I message through it. This is an unfortunate time in my life to be unable to access the secret messages. I can’t give less than three stars because the messenger app is usually awesome. This is just a very bad time to be cut off from encryption. For my safety, I wish I could uninstall to last week’s version.

I would love to see Messenger become more like AIM
by archerbortion on 2018/04/01 13:54
In many ways Messenger is just like AIM, however I think there are a few features that could be added that would be beneficial for non-Facebook users as well. 1. Away Messages - Being able to let your friends and family know that you’re away / busy / can’t talk until a certain time is an amazing tool that I think a lot of is millennials miss. 2. Online / Away / Idle / Invisible options - What I loved about AIM was that I could set my status to one of the four but at the same time I was able to continue instant messaging my friends. Sometimes you don’t want to talk to a bunch of people, and maybe you’d like to stay online but hidden. Perhaps you only want to message one person, and you don’t want the rest of your friends to see you’re online. By adding an invisible feature, this allows you to chat but remain hidden to others. 3. About Me section - One of my favorite customization options with AIM was being able to write a little bit about myself so that other users could get an idea of who I am. I think for people, who like myself no longer have a Facebook, might find this fun and helpful. 4. Text Options - Another favorite customization option with AIM was being able to change the font, text size, and colors. While there are options to change the chat bubble colors, it’s incredibly limited. This applies to the selection of emojis as well.
Unhappy
by Brulygirlnow on 2019/02/02 16:06
I loved messenger when I could choose who and when I wanted to message someone. I’m a singer, so lots of people want to friend me on Facebook so they can follow my posts. Now when I accept a friend request, I’m bombarded with notifications to wave or say hi to my new friend. Also, Facebook is not a dating or hook up site for me. When I accept a friend, I control what they can see for a reason... I don’t want to get personal with them. Now my notification icon blows up with stuff I would get on a dating site.. hey beautiful, you’re so sexy, etc. I hate it!! One night I was cooking dinner for my family and my phone started going off with a weird notification ring I never heard before. My husband picked it up and it was another man calling my phone through messenger! These people don’t have my phone number for a reason. I only give it out to those who need it. Now any random person can call me through the app without having my phone number. Facebook is constantly changing things so I can’t keep up with this type of new feature so I was very surprised This is a great app for cheating on your spouse, if you’re into that. I don’t have time to accept a friend request, then go block every one of them on messenger, especially if I just accepted a bunch of new friends. Now I have hundreds of friend request sitting in notifications all because I don’t have time to follow through blocking them on messenger. Messenger is a Super invasion on my personal life... it was deleted!
Best messaging app
by tjsargent on 2019/01/05 20:09
This is the best and easiest way I can message anyone! I can message, call, FaceTime, see when people are active, etc.! I’ve never had any problems whatsoever. I was just curious about one thing. Sometimes, I’ll be sending a message to someone, even though they’re not active. Here’s what I’m curious about. There’s that little green circle, showing that someone’s active or was active a certain amount of time ago. All the time...when someone was active a certain amount of time ago, it won’t show it until later. For example...I’ve messaged someone around 12:30 P.M. one time. It didn’t have the green circle, saying they were active or active a certain amount of time ago. Then, 20 minutes later (12:50), a green circle popped up on them, saying they were active 50 minutes ago (12:00, which is 30 minutes before I sent them a message). Also, another thing I’m curious about is still with the green light. It won’t show that they’re active when they actually are active. I was just was curious about that. I’m not complaining about this, at least I’m not trying to. I apologize if I am. But, I was curious about it. It’s been happening for a few years. This app definitely deserves 5 stars and above.
This App is horrible.
by gameviewerrazi on 2018/01/05 09:42
As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device. All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.
Stop with the notification setting
by AlyTriolo on 2018/06/14 02:03
Look, the app does what it’s supposed to do. It’s a platform for contacting my FB friends and it does that just fine. Hence the two stars. However, with every single other app I own, you can opt out of notifications just once and never get asked again. I don’t like unnecessary notifications clogging up my phone all day long. I don’t want messenger notifications. EVERY TIME I log into the app, a pop up reminder comes up reminding me that my notifications are off and prompting me to turn them on. Even when I dismiss this alert, there’s a notification (little red circle with a number one in it) next to my photo on the app that is also a reminder to turn on my notifications. The red circle never goes away. And now just this week I’ve started getting an alert in red at the top of my messenger inbox letting me know that my notifications are not on. I find all of this very annoying and over the top. This issue in and of itself makes me want to delete the app. If I don’t want notifications then leave me alone! Why is it so important to this app that it’s forcing me to get notifications? Someone turn this off for goodness sakes.
Messenger is crap
by nizdawiz on 2018/06/15 12:15
I’m giving it a one star because I can’t get rid of zero stars. This messenger app is very faulty all it does is crash and go out when you try to touch screen the app you have to hit it about five or six times and then it will finally Connect but even when it does connect before you can even look at the messages you have it will just go out again no warning just goes out I have tried all types of troubleshooting including deleting the app and then download it again deleting and downloading again over and over Facebook makes it so you have to use messenger otherwise you can’t get any messages or send any messages to anybody you would think the least they can do is make sure that this app does I have all these glitches in them. I’m really disgusted with it I hope they fix the darn thing otherwise a lot of people are going to be just dropping off of Facebook like flies because this really does bite the big one. It is very very frustrating hopefully other people are having the problem will write a review as well then maybe will get something done I’ve already been on several forums and they all are complaining about the same thing
NO STARS (I had to rate it to post it but I would have given it no stars!)
by Zander_Wolf3 on 2018/06/17 14:59
THIS APP IS TERRIBLE...THERE IS A HUGE VOLUME PROBLEM - Like when one of my friends is too loud I try to turn it down but it won’t let me...it says its at its “max” lowest volume - or when I can’t hear one! It says it’s at its “max” highest volume - also WHATS UP WITH ONLY BEING ABLE TO SEE HE TEXTS FROM 2016 - When I was scrolling up and looking for a fight me and my friend got into to re-read it so I could understand why we even got into it I ran into a problem - the dumb thing wouldn’t let me see the fight because it was “too long ago,” and then I had to get on my desktop (WHICH RUNS SO SLOW A SLOTH COULD BEAT IT IN A RACE) and I had to google what to do and ran into something that I didn’t understand while reading what to do so I had to google that too! FIX IT - and another thing! When I was chatting with my friends on the face thing (4 friends who hate me now! Thanks a lot!) the thing just hung up! And wouldn’t let me call them back! And now they think I HUNG UP ON PURPOSE!! And they still AREN'T TALKING TO ME AFTER 3 MONTHS OF MY STUPID THING HANGING UP ON THEM! FIX IT NOW - PLEASE PEOPLE I ADVISE YOU NEVER GET THIS APP And also...one last thing to say to the creators - FIX IT NOW
Can’t even send a message on the main app
by Astraeus99 on 2018/06/25 06:12
Ok so I have good WiFi at my home, right? Plus I have Data so it shouldn’t be a problem, but whenever I use the app, it disconnects and reconnects LITERALLY EVERY SECOND. This prevents me from sending messages or anything! Also there has to be at least 4 people for a group chat including yourself or else it isn’t allowed? What kind of rule is that! So it works perfectly when I use the website, but I can’t join group calls or anything. It’s like a mix of Facebook and Messenger but it shouldn’t be because it’s a site for messenger! So the only thing that that is useful for is texting people. Also, when I use messenger it makes me use another account for some reason which is REALLY annoying, and I can’t log that account out. Oh and that brings me to another problem. I can’t log out of messenger!!!! There is no option to delete your account from messenger or anything like that! I was trying to today, and it said that that isn’t an option! Well anyway, this app has just been a pain for me and I plan on deleting it. Aside from all that, Thank you for taking the time to read my review, and have a good day!!!
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.
Issues...
by Ikisu on 2018/06/15 13:45
So normally I enjoy using messenger to chat with friends and family members. But mainly friends. It’s free and I can’t complain like most people. But since your company released the latest update now anytime I go to click on messenger to read my messages or reply it blacks out and kicks me out. It does this either once or sometimes twice making me retry a third time just to read a simple message or reply... As you can imagine this is truly upsetting. Apparently my friends who also own iPhone 8 also have this issue... I am wondering is there a number or email we can get ahold of to report this bug or issue...? This way your company can fix the issue.. Unless your company is well aware of the issue then can you kindly fix it? Otherwise we won’t be using messenger anymore. It will not just be one customer you are losing here. It would be a lot of users from what I am seeing... Thanks...
Seriously bad
by WyatCharles on 2018/07/22 01:44
This is the first review I’ve ever written, and I have only taken the 15 minutes out of my day to do this because of how much I absolutely despise this app. The overfilled, disorganized structure of Messenger makes it feel more like a carnival game where someone is trying to steal my social security information than an actual talk/text app. Messenger is just a filthy excuse for DM’s that no one wanted and frankly could have been done well if it wasn’t born as a grotesque second head of the beast that is Facebook. Instagram alone blows Messenger out of the swamp water it floats in, and Instagram’s Direct Messages are INCLUDED IN THE APP ITSELF. Not only is this the worst app visually and mechanically speaking, Messenger is also so littered with bugs it could feed a family of raccoons for weeks on end. That’s why, after explaining to all 127 of my Facebook friends that Messenger decided to send a broken spammy link to without my consent and IN MY NAME, I deleted my Facebook and Messenger accounts. I don’t even care if no one reads this review. I just needed to vent my frustrations with this god forsaken, useless trash fire of an app. If you read all of this, please, do not use Messenger.
Mmmhhm.
by Burnalotttt on 2018/12/03 03:15
Messenger has been nice.. I have been wondering about having selectable skins for a while now! I'm Hoping there is a selection 15 or more!?!?!?? I feel there should be strong thought into the variety too... Child friendly of course but it would be nice to see Messenger have something for us ✌🏼Trouble Maker✌🏼type.. 🤔 I have just constantly seen girly -ishhh stuff & would like to see one along the lines of troublesome acts😆😆 Cars/ATV don't always have to be the answer & I hope these aren't going to be an option.... Last thing....,,,, I think you should be able to use the messenger on the browser . I've had the problem with needing to send a urgent message but couldn't because the device owner wouldn't allow signing out. If people use the browser for FB, at least ask if they're the device owner or not or be accessible for the simple fact of a unsuccessful server !
Just one thing...
by iam_tlo on 2018/05/02 09:33
Make it so we decide whether someone can see if we are active or not. Maybe even how you block specific people, make it so we can select who can see if we are active or not...like a select audience. I have a stalker ex who I have a restraining order on who has made fake accounts as well as gone on mutual friends Facebooks and can see I’m active which is not comforting. This should be a part of privacy settings. I have messaged you guys about this and still have not gotten a response. I have searched thru different internet sites and they all state there is no way to completely turn off the active now option with the green dot. I know you can turn off where it says show active but it literally doesn’t do anything. My friend and I tested it and she sat right next to me when I turned it off and could still see that I was active with a green dot. If my suggestion is the intention and purpose of the current option then you need to fix it because it doesn’t work!
Needs work
by ebassily on 2019/01/18 05:16
Arabic messages should be right-justified like all other good apps that support Arabic. Messenger used to be like that but a long while ago, with a nasty update, the right-justification of Arabic text in messages was lost and never came back. This is really annoying for all Arabic-speaking users. Imagine you have to read English messages that are always right-justified and not left. Also, we’d love to see the ability to reply to a certain message like WhatsApp instead of just reacting to a message by an emoji. This should come as a very welcome feature by many users. I personally like Messenger better than WhatsApp because I don’t have to worry about backing it up. Plus, it’s not tied to a specific phone number of mine, so I can access it from any device connected to the Internet. This is very very handy, unlike WhatsApp. That’s why, if the above feature (replying to previous messages aka WhatsApp) was introduced in Messenger, it will easily become my chat app of choice.
Make it go back
by Ifesbob on 2017/12/19 23:00
This new update isn’t just not as aesthetically nice as the previous one, it’s not functionally as good. For one, going back through pictures takes a century whereas it used to be a lot faster. Secondly, the transition between functionalities such as adding a picture and typing is not as smooth as it used to be. You used to be able to just tap on the text box to start typing after sending a picture, now you have to manually switch back, which is annoying as hell. Also, for bigger devices such as iPads, you used to be able to expand the current conversation, and you still can, but the functionality of that feature as been hurt. The text box used to go all the way across the screen so you could see more of what you were typing at once, but it now doesn’t do that anymore. The only update the old version needed in terms of that menu was making the process of adding a gif smoother, none of the rest of this was necessary. I also don’t appreciate the unsolicited notification I got about syncing my contacts. Thanks, but I hate this update.

Awesome Messaging App (but one problem)
by A.F.C The Great on 2018/11/27 22:06
This is app is one of my favorite on the App Store & I use it frequently & more than any other messaging app. I’ve been using this app since it came out on the Google Play Store & Apple Store, which is quite a while. I like all the new features that have been added ever since, but now in the last update, there’s a bug that I would appreciate if you fixed it, which is receiving GIFs. Every time I send one the person who receives it isn’t able to open at first & the same thing happens to me when I receive them from other people. I’ve noticed that many of my friends are facing the same issue. Can you please fix this issue? But other than that this app is awesome. I will never stop using Facebook Messenger, cause unlike other messaging apps this one in particular, could do way many other things.
Love that I have an alternative
by KBailster on 2018/10/09 15:42
When owning a business sometimes he would like to keep your personal business separate from your Facebook or your phone number personal or business which ever you choose to use Facebook messenger for. (I’m going to assume that you’re using it for your business but if you’re not it still fits your secret love affairs hidden ? Ha IDFK and gives you the option to have privacy you can play games with you’re friends not on an iPhone , they’re starting to somewhat get some similarities and filters like other picture or “picture chatting” so yet again. Way to go Facebook for making “Facebook Messenger” and yet another loop hole to sell and make a profit off us dummies that should just make our own personal app. Society is way too lazy to do anything of the sort. I’ll end here, Cheers ! For another successful job well done.
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.
I didn't get what I wanted
by calvinrocks on 2018/08/09 04:02
So I talked to my grandma in the kitchen and she told me that we were going to cook dinner but dinner wasn't served. Basically I was sitting there wondering why the hell that happened. Yesterday when I spoke to her father explained that they were having some difficult times and that they needed to work together to fix them. After a long amount of time we talked about messenger and how stupid the app is. I called the cops and they came over to my house and arrested my grandma for using Messenger. I want to talk about steak 'n Shake. Very good place to be. You get good milkshakes and stuff like that. I got arrested for pulling up the drive-through. A song came on the radio. A good song. Did you know that if you play a song on the radio, you can hear it? I have people didn't know that. Oh wait, it's big it's because you're deaf. Today at school I had an assignment. It was called how bad is messenger. My grandma got out of jail for using Messenger because it wasn't actually a crime. I'm basically lying to you. The point of my review is, messenger is retarded. Worst app on the planet.
Invasive tactics much?
by Digital.Velocity on 2018/04/10 15:41
I have been using Facebook for several years. It’s a lovely way of wasting time and staying up to date on which celebrities have died recently and the scandals I should be angry about. Facebook messenger would be ten times better if the developers made it to stay out of my business. 1. Every time it suggests that I connect it with my contacts so that it can suggest people from their phone numbers, I tell it no, I don’t want to do that. And yet, somehow I’m still getting suggested messenger contacts from phone numbers in my address book. 2. M suggestions. Glad I figured out how to make it stop suggesting passive aggressive “you’re welcome” stickers when I’m in the middle of a fight. It doesn’t help me any. 3. It was only a matter of time until it started giving us ads on messenger, and I know that ads don’t go away once they are there, but I might as well say it. Hate being advertised to when I’m talking to my friends.
Quit reminding me to turn on notifications
by Annavon on 2018/09/21 20:40
Ok, I’m giving you one more star. The notification is no longer appearing in messenger, unless I look at my profile. There is still an alert to “turn on notifications”. My notifications ARE ON. I have the notifications on that I prefer. I discovered that the only way the reminder goes away is to turn on banners. I don’t WANT banners because they are annoying and pop up at inconvenient times. Stop micro managing your users! There should be a way to acknowledge the reminder that turns it off. Also, I noticed that there is a setting to turn off active status which will allow people to have more privacy. However, you have to change the setting in multiple places. It is not easy to find the setting either, especially in Facebook. With all of the updates, one would think you could correct some of the more pressing issues. Instead, you changed the font color on the predictive text. Really?
Show last login up to 24 hours please!
by musicspecialist71 on 2018/01/22 16:23
I use messenger to contact people I'm friends with on facebook when i don't have their phone number, so I do like the app. However, this latest update does not show the last login of people past 1 hour of their log in. This app use to show at least up to 24 hours of last login which was very nice, especially for family, friends, co-workers etc. We may not talk everyday but we can at least see that they are ok and active in a 24 hour period. And, If I can see someone has been active in the past 24 hours, then YES, I'm more likely to use Messenger!!!! I also have a son that lives many hours from me and he is very busy with family, job, etc., but if I can at least see where he has logged in within the last 24 hours, it gives me peace of mind that he is ok! Please give back to us and show the last login of people from at least 24 hours! Please!! Thank you!!
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
Logout is too difficult and interoperability with facebook has major setbacks
by Ezvq0930 on 2017/12/07 22:12
This is my first review ever in my lifetime, and will likely be my last. Facebook&Messenger is that horrible for non-frequent users. I only use the messenger when I need to contact someone not saved on my phone. So a few times a year maybe. For that reason I want the log out process to be easy so I won’t fail in the 10-step process, and continue to appear “active” to others every time I use the connected facebook app, which is the case that deserves another review of its own as one of their many horrible set backs despite being the biggest SNS service. Each time I use facebook messenger they have updated the app so the logout process I used before has a high chance of not being applicable anymore, which leaves me to scavenge for the latest method. Any app/service that relies on its annoying opt-out processes instead of improving their service in order to increase their user pool deserves to be ridiculed.
New update looks like it’s meant for a 4” screen
by timmc94 on 2019/01/18 05:47
To fix Facebook’s update notes for this release: “The brand new, redesigned Messenger app is now more annoying to use, harder to navigate and much less fun.” Great work guys. (That was sarcasm, which I’m pointing out because that’ll likely fly right over the heads of those who thought this redesign was a good idea) The new update for Messenger is beyond stupid. The text is HUGE — on my 6.5” screen it looks like it’s meant for a 4” or less screen. WHY MUST YOU KEEP RUINING THIS APP MORE AND MORE WITH EVERY UPDATE? Do you WANT users to leave? It’s not just looks, either: functionality is also being removed, which includes 3D Touch on the conversation list view which I used a ton to archive those “new friends” auto-conversations and various group chats without deleting them. Messenger is now, in one update, a shell of its former self. The worst it’s ever been. If it wasn’t such a convenient way to contact people I would have deleted it within 24 hours after I updated the app! Get your act together, Facebook.
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.
I really despise this app
by neosaganist on 2017/11/22 09:31
I have been trying to set up a digital environment that limits addictive phone use. I only put this app on my phone to check my messages when I absolutely cannot get to a desktop. I delete it immediately after. The whole notification to let you know that you don’t have notifications enabled is the nail in the coffin for me. I get that nothing is free. This app doesn’t provide any additional value that isn’t already supplied by the message app that came with my phone. It’s convenient to type my messages on a full size keyboard but google voice, hangouts, plus etc all allow for this while integrating with a dozen other useful apps. The only reason I use it is because Facebook forces me to on my mobile device (I’ve figured out how to send messages to one person without it but not receive). Stop ambushing me with notifications and give the illusion of choice and you might not have to force your app on us.
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.
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.
Slow sending & deletion option
by WeezerBeast on 2018/07/27 15:42
I mean it works fine most of the time but obviously as some people has already said it struggles to send messages to others. Honestly still waiting it to send a message to my cousin it’s been two days? Even if my internet is slow it still sends to everyone else so that makes no sense. Only other issue you guys need to add a delete button; again my internet is slow so I have to wait forever just to log into Facebook on my computer to go into messenger to delete things but I shouldn’t need to go on there to do this id appreciate it if someone could consider this idea to add this ability on the app especially when you log onto Facebook through the phone it doesn’t give you the same option and just sends you back to the app?
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
My messages don’t show as delivered
by Shelby&Ruby on 2018/07/18 04:39
My problem is that for the past month, I will send a message to someone and whether we are Facebook friends or not, my messages do not show as delivered. My Facebook Messenger app has the latest update, I just recently updated my iOS software and I’m still having this problem. I’ve tried googling it and haven’t found any solutions. Can you help me please? Also, I was wondering if you could make an option for us to be able to only accept messages from friends or friends of friends only in addition to the current one accepting messages from everyone? The messages I get from people I’m not connected with don’t always appear in the message requests folder first and instead show up on my home page in bold letters.
Totally ruined
by Olgasmother76 on 2018/05/20 13:50
Without a doubt this has become a controlling unnecessary app for me. The camera button for all the selfies I am not going to take. The pointless “who is active” and the other piece of clutter in the middle of what used to be my conversation list. SnapChat wannabe. And now it is a red notification dot saying my notifications aren’t turned on. They are. And yesterday this was joined by a banner that pops up constantly saying yet again that my notifications aren’t turned on. They are. Apparently they aren’t turned on enough for Facebook. Messenger has become a cluttered piece of garbage. I did send some screenshots to app support but I am sure they are too busy thinking up new clutter to add to this app. Wouldn’t want to actually fix anything. Thank goodness for iMessage bc I don't really need you. Actually I don't really need Facebook either. I would give you no stars bc you are that bad and I am that irritated but it seems I have to give something. So one star and I don't really mean it.
NOT HAPPY
by Deborahspet on 2019/02/08 08:59
Just sent this to all my friends on Facebook... Just a quick note, I’m no longer using Facebook Messenger!! Received a message from a friend, this message had his photograph attached, the body of the message advised that this persons “information” had been updated and there was a box to “Accept.” I clicked on it, trusting that it was my friend. The next screen showed his picture.....however, just underneath his photo and name was a message...”Using Messenger without Facebook...Logged in using a phone number from Nigeria, Account was recently created.” It gave a day and time created....and below to the left was a picture of him with a bubble that read, “Hello.” And attached to this was another “shadow bubble” with an emoji of a happy face and a + sign!!! I didn’t click on this, didn’t send a message, immediately blocked and deleted his account attachment and deleted the Messenger Application. I’ve had problems in the past with this platform and this was the last straw!!!! Please be careful!!!
BUGS: Lost audio in group talk!!
by GoldenVong1 on 2018/09/10 00:29
Thanks Messengers for the service. However, I am so sad to see the two following bugs: 1) I created a group chat of 6 people. Recently, the group will get no audio from either one person (if 5 people attend), or no audio of two people (if 6 people attend the call). We can still see video of each other, but each one can’t hear 1 or 2 people at the same time. Please fix this! Note: This bug happens recently, not before! Is there any restrictions to the number of people attending the group? 2) We attended a group talk of 5. We got audio lost of 1 person (different pairs couldn’t hear either one of us randomly). One person in our group slept or knocked out during the talk. We decided to kick her out and restarted the conversation so that 4 of us could hear each other. Unfortunately, when we all hung up (in hope that the call would be disconnected if there is only one person is still in the group call), the call is still there for us to join with the sleeping person presented!!! There is no way we could restart a new call without the sleeping person! To solve the problem, we had to hang up, created a new group of 4 and started a new call! Please think of this bug. Maybe if Messengers fixes the audio lost bug, then the second bug is fine to users. Thanks for reading.
The worst!!!
by icantstandthisterribleapp on 2018/05/30 02:02
I wish I could give this app less than one star!!! If you have more than one Facebook account, get ready to wish you could punch someone! In order to switch accounts it asked you if you know what you are doing about three times before you can switch. When you have finally clicked ok a million times and you are on your dog or baby’s account it tells you that you have a new message on your other account, you click ok a million times again only to find that the new message is “you are now friends with Johnny and you can message them.” Yeah!!! I freakin’ know how your terrible app works!!! That’s not a message!! I know I’m now friends with them! I just approved it!!! And I know I can message them!!! Thanks for wasting my time constantly! The fact that I’ve updated it over and over and they never fix it makes me want to strangle someone! I have never hated an app more, but I have a lot of friends who use it so I’m stuck with it. It’s the worst!
wow!
by zzaakkaattaakk on 2018/03/25 08:08
facebook is really run by evil Trolls to make you use this in place of the easy jabber compatible chats they had for a bit. facebook and google BOTH said making us stick to larger, purposely buggier, proprietary apps seems to keep more users on one site. you can only make a lotta money on ads and selling user data if you have a lot more than a lot. government funding is even better because backdoors on one side get you frontdoors into law. they either have to make your life harder or they have to wait longer to bank on a future web that is FOR communication that can support other world advantages, rather than baiting people into another parasitic money mine. the money is supposed to support the venture for the goal of the venture. you should not get into anything important to living with the end goal of money. would you be a doctor or teacher that holds lives for Ransom? or rather the point of bothering is to fix people so they can get onto the real useful ways to profit
The Good, The Bad, and The Annoying
by Nom@d on 2018/01/13 01:03
The Good: • Just about everyone I know has FB and therefore some form of Messenger. Super handy! • We are a military family who has lived abroad for several years. I love that I can call friends and family through the app • I love that I can share and receive pictures, videos, and even some documents so easily through the app The Bad (and kind of infuriating): • For all the talk of how we have choice with privacy, I do NOT understand why I can’t turn off the little green dot when I’m active (even if I toggle off the “chat” - my son and I tested it)! • To go along with my complaint above, WHY is it anyone’s business how long ago I was active? This should be a choice. Apps like WhatsApp give users this freedom to choose. The Annoying: • Dear Facebook Messenger, you are NOT Snapchat. Please stop trying to be Snapchat. If I wanted to have filters and things in my way every time I want to take a picture. Then I’d use Snapchat. You’re trying to be like them isn’t competition - it’s annoying. The people who want Messenger stay with Messenger. Please stop. • I am confused about why the feature to pay/send/receive money is available in some accounts and devices and not all. You might be a pretty good competitor to PayPal of the feature were available to all. So...there you have it: The Good, The Bad, and the Annoying
What’s the point?
by MasonBalison on 2018/02/02 10:26
My account keeps getting locked out for “suspicious activity”. I end up having to send facebook a picture to prove I am who I say I am. When I get my account back after a few days it never tells me what the suspicious activity was. This happens around once a month. Now I’m locked out due to “suspicious activity” once again. But everytime I try to send the image the page refreshes and says that my network isn’t stable and to connect to a better network. And it also gets rid of the file I selected. I’ve tried changing the file type of the picture. From JPG to PNG I’ve tried uploading different pictures all of me. And of different file types all with no luck. Im not making another Facebook account. I’ve already had to do that once due to losing my phone. It’s way to much work to re-add all of my friends and family. Plus I’ll probably still have to deal with getting locked out all the time. So I guess I’m done using Facebook.
Destin Florida
by B Emmons on 2018/07/10 18:21
I live near the beach 12 years and we left there three years ago to move to South Carolina. I do not like South Carolina my white sandy beaches gave me peace. At my age and I love standing on the edge of the water I just thanking God for the beauty of Destin beach it is just so gorgeous ,and I love the harbor walk and I miss all of that so much. it’s very difficult to be happy here when you’ve had the beach life. I am Bonnie Emmons I really would like to win a vacation because I’ve never wished so much to get back to Destin .i probably have a few years left but you can bet that if I don’t win eventually I get back down there. I love all the people there ,they were wonderful people and somebody’s going to be very happy with his prize thank you for the opportunity.
Facebook names
by Asap_jay on 2018/12/08 21:29
I am highly irritated because everyone one else has gang names and cussing in their name on Facebook, but I have just a name that I am called and they won’t accept it. I honestly don’t think it’s fair because in people bio it has a lot of negative things in it about black people and how other people are not welcomed. I don’t think that’s fair. I mean you want me to send something to show you what I’m called in my everyday life that’s not cool, maybe I don’t want to be called that maybe I was to be called something different. I mean if your going to come after me than we are going to change everyone who has a bad name. If I have to report them myself I will do so because that’s unfair that I can’t keep my name but other people can. I don’t think I’m going to keep this app. I am things about deleting it and that’s just what it’s going to have to be. So because my name is a problem, it won’t let me log in to my messenger which is stupid but whatever
It was fine 2 days ago! 😡
by psalm91bagsolutionista on 2018/10/05 04:19
While messaging on Facebook on a laptop is okay, I use this app for personal and business while on the go. However, the recent update 2 days ago has caused me so much frustration that I can’t even connect to my own profile without getting an error message that says I’ve been sent too may confirmations! Well, if I’ve actually GOTTEN ONE, then I would have confirmed it and wouldn’t have to write this bad review!! But I’ve gotten NOTHING back and like I said, it’s been 2 days!! What gives!?! I’m not even able to verify my own phone number because it keeps telling me I have no connection when clearly, I’m always in a WiFi zone, even in my car OR I’ve tried too many times!?! Send me confirmation FROM THE FIRST TIME I’VE TRIED IT TWO DAY AGO!!! Geez!! And stop saying “we’re making it better for you” with your standard automated message on the Update History when all you’ve done is prevented me from even logging in! 😡 Fix it AGAIN!!
Random Update on 1/8/19 I didn’t approve/Lots of old features moved / Missing
by KbishH3rr3ra on 2019/01/09 11:06
I’m disappointed at the fact FB didn’t give us a heads up or even send a notification of some sort letting us know it was going to update messenger! Please, at least, address the issues and explain the purpose/reasons for this update. It looks like the new update is zoomed in, everything is bigger and there’s lots of unnecessary white blank spaces all throughout each page. Not to mention the GAMES page! It’s Gone. I had to manually type the game I wanted to play in the search bar, and when I did about 5 other different things/pages popped up along with the game. And I don’t see why we need two different pages to view peoples story’s on. Just pick one, THE HOME PAGE! Honestly, the home page was fine. Aside from everything I dislike on the H.P., one thing I do like is swiping left on each message to see my opinions. (but please bring back the archive option) Some feedback: HP: Change it back to the original -Call it either Chats or Messages, not both. (“New chat requests or new message requests”) ACTIVE:Instead of the lime color to show who’s active change it back to green and add our calls on the same page GAMES: bring back and leave it ALL on one page GROUPS/DISCOVER: Go ahead and put the groups/discover options together, at least let us still be able to find them.

Stupid
by nursepeaches on 2019/02/17 15:32
It is extremely stupid to have install a totally separate app when messaging was working just fine before this. Just a pointless waste of space.

Worthless
by Spinster 9 on 2019/02/17 13:27
I get notices that I have a message, and there is no message. It’s hard to understand. I unintentionally sent a message because the app is difficult to use. I think Facebook messaging is a waste of time; quite annoying. I just deleted the app.

Active Status

The Active status doesn’t show for some contacts. I text my boyfriend the most and his active status or how many minutes ago he was online does now show up but the friends that I rarely text theirs shows up. Not only him, some contact don’t have status showing how many minutes ago they were online.

No more messenger for me, I guess.
by 5719432 on 2019/02/17 03:18
Well, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it ! I HAD messenger. It worked perfect, easy to use. But apparently someone thought it needed changing, and its changed ! I will not read and sign a 16 page agreement, so I guess no more messenger for me. 🤔
Effects
by odo3068 on 2019/02/17 01:32
Why did you change the way the effects work? Literally that’s so stupid. Why would I take the picture AND THEN FIND AN EFFECT? And it doesn’t always work.. like I’ll take a picture and the effect button isn’t even an option. And there was no instruction or notif that this happened so I tried to find the effects for 10 minutes. It’s a stupid “update” and I would much rather have the old effects back.
Another Facebook manipulation
by DaveCPUA on 2019/02/17 01:29
There are fewer more annoying and criminal companies than Facebook. I’m forced to download this app in lieu of FB messenger on their main site. I’m not pleased about it, since FB will try sell my data to others but some people in other countries are hard to reach and my hand has been forced. I will be deleting this app ASAP!
I love this app
by LeaKitty1 on 2019/02/17 01:27

Memory hog/ updates do not allow ap to work
by Countrygal58 on 2019/02/17 00:04
Can not understand why we can't be informed of what the updates contain. The last 3 updates have been horrible! Memory hog!!! With this latest update, constant crashes and can not connect. What started out as a great ap has now just become frustrating.
can’t archive!No access to message requests

Annoying
by Ellen234 on 2019/02/16 18:56
What’s with when tapping to go into the app it immediately opens a message from someone? I should just be able to click on the app and it open to show all my messages. Not immediately open one of them for me to reply too. Pissing me off.
Update all the time
by Crackhead101 on 2019/02/16 17:50
I hate that you have to keep updating this app
Ruined
by ytu8754 on 2019/02/16 16:44
New app update forces you to stay on platform for everything. Want to share a video link outside of messenger? Can’t. Someone send you funny Facebook post you want to scroll through? Can’t. Great job pursing on platform $ lurking instead of focusing on customer experience!
New message requests not showing up
by ElisabettaAngelos on 2019/02/16 15:19
Ever since the update new message requests are not showing up in my folder. I’m very active in buy, sell, and trade groups and this poses a HUGE problem for everyone buying and selling. Please fix this ASAP!
Still freezing up when I’m trying to message people.
by Jennie the Jesus-lover on 2019/02/16 15:12

Turn screen off on call
by sujaydutta on 2019/02/16 13:03
When we are talking using this, please turn the screen off like regular iPhone calls. Otherwise sometimes other people get added to the conversation or camera or speaker gets turned on when the ear touches some of the controls on the active screen.

by Beejebe on 2019/02/16 08:50
I have an iPhone 8. Ever since loading the newest version of Messenger have had one problem after another. It won’t work with YouTube when wanting to share a video or Etsy. It constantly gets the red explanation point when trying to send a file from Instagram. I have erased and reinstalled numerous times- no success. This is the same thing that happened at the last update. My friend is having similar issues. I hope you can fix this because I miss it.!
Bug-bug-buggy
by JaxxiePoo on 2019/02/16 08:37
Getting really tired of trying to send a screen cap, webpage, etc. from a non-messenger source and being told to make sure I have the latest version of Messenger. I do. Probably getting this message even more than I was before after updating.

I deactivated my Facebook account thinking I could still use the Messenger app for the story feature and it doesn’t seem to be working. It’s the only think I like about Facebook.

Newest Update is Awful
by JGunter8912 on 2019/02/16 06:15
The newest update attempted to “simplify” the chat but it makes other features even more difficult to find. Forget seeing any message requests, they’re either gone or so deeply hidden you’re going to need a masters degree just to find it. The new colors cause some chats to glitch and disappear. You’re also getting adds direct to your inbox now. It feels like the “better” the developers try to make this app, the worse it gets and the less control you have over the features you may not like. Unfortunately, if you want to message someone on Facebook, you’re going to need this app. Since a majority of my friends and family are out of state and move frequently, I’m going to have to deal with this issue until they decide to get Instagram or Snapchat.

I want privacy to be online
by Math Chef on 2019/02/16 02:46
I want to be able to turn off the notifications showing if I’m online and how long since I’ve been online. This is a safety flaw. I also want to turn off voice and video chat. I am thinking of deleting fb entirely just to get rid of messenger.

You Should Not Force The Update!

What if I didn't have memory space? Should I no longer use Messenger until I bought a new phone?
Thoroughly impressed.
by ReviewerNickname1 on 2019/02/15 16:42
I still won’t comment on the bloated size of the app. Or that you STILL can't access Photo Stream pictures from inside the app to send. But I’m actually impressed with how they have cleaned up the GUI in this latest update. It is not super cluttered and distracting anymore. Nicely laid out and spaced, pleasant to look at. I am using an iPad tho, so I can’t comment on the iPhone version. I won’t be installing it there, as I know it will not be optimized for smaller screens (and I have a 4” SE). Either way, you’re on the right track Facebook! Keep it lean, mean, and clean.

Screw all you people leaving good reviews, you are what is wrong in the world accepting a garbage product and letting them perpetuate their trash, why do we still need multiple apps to access different features of facebook? More data use on our part, more work on our part, but your company profits. When are the updates going to stop so i can save some space on my phone? Are we really that dumbed down of a society now that we just accept all his crap subpar work that is passed onto us as the finished polished product, already apple has screwed us with updates that take all our phone space, now what can we look forward too? The app to be buggy and crap constantly even with all the YEARS of updates. Wow idiocracy is truly becoming a reality

With the latest update my ability to do those fun Snapchat style masks with photos has vanished. It only seems to remain for video calls. I tried to search for information on the App help and it didn't even recognize the word mask or photo filters. This was one of my favors features. I am extremely disappointed to see this is gone.

This app is CRAP!!! Let’s start off with why it’s separated from Facebook(bring this back)? The annoying messenger calls when my number isn’t listed on the app, i mean, if i wanted to get calls from people, i should have confirmed my number, so there really isn’t any privacy or discretion, like how do the developers of this app not follow up on the many complaints and do something to make us all feel good. I am complaining! I can’t delete my messages, it won’t let me, let’s see, then there is the annoying indicator on the app that shows i have messages, when i open the app up, ha, there’s no messages, come on guys, let’s do better!

So now you cannot delete the zillion contacts this app bombards you with. It has every person of every person that has ever commented or looked at every persons on my friends list posts. I hate having all these unknown people in my contacts. Some of them their names are spelled with symbols.Ridiculous to constantly be bombarded with possible contacts, if I wanted them there I would ask for them. This messenger is just more spy ware and clock bait. Deleting it now.

Hate Forcing Use of App
by DeBiKin on 2019/02/15 07:23
The app is adequate but was happy accessing it through FB. Since forced to use install Messenger app just to clear the FB red notification I now have to leave FB and then have the additional battery sucking app running. To make matters even worse, the app brags about constantly updating as if that's a good (time consuming, memory sucking) thing. I hate constantly updating! I might as well delete the app and reinstall it every time I get a message. When I want to message people, texting is my preferred form of messaging. To make this app even worse, now it puts the damned red button by games that will never clear because I will never click on the stupid things. Hate hate hate!!!

It makes me mad that the new update didn't carry over the support for 3D touch. A way that I daily used to quickly look at messages and mark them as read at the same time is now no longer. I'm not sure if this was on purpose or just forgotten, but I really hope that it gets corrected in the future.

For my safety, I wish I could uninstall to last week’s version.

I would love to see Messenger become more like AIM
by archerbortion on 2018/04/01 13:54
In many ways Messenger is just like AIM, however I think there are a few features that could be added that would be beneficial for non-Facebook users as well. 1. Away Messages - Being able to let your friends and family know that you’re away / busy / can’t talk until a certain time is an amazing tool that I think a lot of is millennials miss. 2. Online / Away / Idle / Invisible options - What I loved about AIM was that I could set my status to one of the four but at the same time I was able to continue instant messaging my friends. Sometimes you don’t want to talk to a bunch of people, and maybe you’d like to stay online but hidden. Perhaps you only want to message one person, and you don’t want the rest of your friends to see you’re online. By adding an invisible feature, this allows you to chat but remain hidden to others. 3. About Me section - One of my favorite customization options with AIM was being able to write a little bit about myself so that other users could get an idea of who I am. I think for people, who like myself no longer have a Facebook, might find this fun and helpful. 4. Text Options - Another favorite customization option with AIM was being able to change the font, text size, and colors. While there are options to change the chat bubble colors, it’s incredibly limited. This applies to the selection of emojis as well.
Unhappy
by Brulygirlnow on 2019/02/02 16:06
I loved messenger when I could choose who and when I wanted to message someone. I’m a singer, so lots of people want to friend me on Facebook so they can follow my posts. Now when I accept a friend request, I’m bombarded with notifications to wave or say hi to my new friend. Also, Facebook is not a dating or hook up site for me. When I accept a friend, I control what they can see for a reason... I don’t want to get personal with them. Now my notification icon blows up with stuff I would get on a dating site.. hey beautiful, you’re so sexy, etc. I hate it!! One night I was cooking dinner for my family and my phone started going off with a weird notification ring I never heard before. My husband picked it up and it was another man calling my phone through messenger! These people don’t have my phone number for a reason. I only give it out to those who need it. Now any random person can call me through the app without having my phone number. Facebook is constantly changing things so I can’t keep up with this type of new feature so I was very surprised This is a great app for cheating on your spouse, if you’re into that. I don’t have time to accept a friend request, then go block every one of them on messenger, especially if I just accepted a bunch of new friends. Now I have hundreds of friend request sitting in notifications all because I don’t have time to follow through blocking them on messenger. Messenger is a Super invasion on my personal life... it was deleted!
Best messaging app
by tjsargent on 2019/01/05 20:09
This is the best and easiest way I can message anyone! I can message, call, FaceTime, see when people are active, etc.! I’ve never had any problems whatsoever. I was just curious about one thing. Sometimes, I’ll be sending a message to someone, even though they’re not active. Here’s what I’m curious about. There’s that little green circle, showing that someone’s active or was active a certain amount of time ago. All the time...when someone was active a certain amount of time ago, it won’t show it until later. For example...I’ve messaged someone around 12:30 P.M. one time. It didn’t have the green circle, saying they were active or active a certain amount of time ago. Then, 20 minutes later (12:50), a green circle popped up on them, saying they were active 50 minutes ago (12:00, which is 30 minutes before I sent them a message). Also, another thing I’m curious about is still with the green light. It won’t show that they’re active when they actually are active. I was just was curious about that. I’m not complaining about this, at least I’m not trying to. I apologize if I am. But, I was curious about it. It’s been happening for a few years. This app definitely deserves 5 stars and above.
This App is horrible.
by gameviewerrazi on 2018/01/05 09:42
As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device. All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.
Stop with the notification setting
by AlyTriolo on 2018/06/14 02:03
Look, the app does what it’s supposed to do. It’s a platform for contacting my FB friends and it does that just fine. Hence the two stars. However, with every single other app I own, you can opt out of notifications just once and never get asked again. I don’t like unnecessary notifications clogging up my phone all day long. I don’t want messenger notifications. EVERY TIME I log into the app, a pop up reminder comes up reminding me that my notifications are off and prompting me to turn them on. Even when I dismiss this alert, there’s a notification (little red circle with a number one in it) next to my photo on the app that is also a reminder to turn on my notifications. The red circle never goes away. And now just this week I’ve started getting an alert in red at the top of my messenger inbox letting me know that my notifications are not on. I find all of this very annoying and over the top. This issue in and of itself makes me want to delete the app. If I don’t want notifications then leave me alone! Why is it so important to this app that it’s forcing me to get notifications? Someone turn this off for goodness sakes.
Messenger is crap
by nizdawiz on 2018/06/15 12:15
I’m giving it a one star because I can’t get rid of zero stars. This messenger app is very faulty all it does is crash and go out when you try to touch screen the app you have to hit it about five or six times and then it will finally Connect but even when it does connect before you can even look at the messages you have it will just go out again no warning just goes out I have tried all types of troubleshooting including deleting the app and then download it again deleting and downloading again over and over Facebook makes it so you have to use messenger otherwise you can’t get any messages or send any messages to anybody you would think the least they can do is make sure that this app does I have all these glitches in them. I’m really disgusted with it I hope they fix the darn thing otherwise a lot of people are going to be just dropping off of Facebook like flies because this really does bite the big one. It is very very frustrating hopefully other people are having the problem will write a review as well then maybe will get something done I’ve already been on several forums and they all are complaining about the same thing
NO STARS (I had to rate it to post it but I would have given it no stars!)
by Zander_Wolf3 on 2018/06/17 14:59
THIS APP IS TERRIBLE...THERE IS A HUGE VOLUME PROBLEM - Like when one of my friends is too loud I try to turn it down but it won’t let me...it says its at its “max” lowest volume - or when I can’t hear one! It says it’s at its “max” highest volume - also WHATS UP WITH ONLY BEING ABLE TO SEE HE TEXTS FROM 2016 - When I was scrolling up and looking for a fight me and my friend got into to re-read it so I could understand why we even got into it I ran into a problem - the dumb thing wouldn’t let me see the fight because it was “too long ago,” and then I had to get on my desktop (WHICH RUNS SO SLOW A SLOTH COULD BEAT IT IN A RACE) and I had to google what to do and ran into something that I didn’t understand while reading what to do so I had to google that too! FIX IT - and another thing! When I was chatting with my friends on the face thing (4 friends who hate me now! Thanks a lot!) the thing just hung up! And wouldn’t let me call them back! And now they think I HUNG UP ON PURPOSE!! And they still AREN'T TALKING TO ME AFTER 3 MONTHS OF MY STUPID THING HANGING UP ON THEM! FIX IT NOW - PLEASE PEOPLE I ADVISE YOU NEVER GET THIS APP And also...one last thing to say to the creators - FIX IT NOW
Can’t even send a message on the main app
by Astraeus99 on 2018/06/25 06:12
Ok so I have good WiFi at my home, right? Plus I have Data so it shouldn’t be a problem, but whenever I use the app, it disconnects and reconnects LITERALLY EVERY SECOND. This prevents me from sending messages or anything! Also there has to be at least 4 people for a group chat including yourself or else it isn’t allowed? What kind of rule is that! So it works perfectly when I use the website, but I can’t join group calls or anything. It’s like a mix of Facebook and Messenger but it shouldn’t be because it’s a site for messenger! So the only thing that that is useful for is texting people. Also, when I use messenger it makes me use another account for some reason which is REALLY annoying, and I can’t log that account out. Oh and that brings me to another problem. I can’t log out of messenger!!!! There is no option to delete your account from messenger or anything like that! I was trying to today, and it said that that isn’t an option! Well anyway, this app has just been a pain for me and I plan on deleting it. Aside from all that, Thank you for taking the time to read my review, and have a good day!!!
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.
Issues...
by Ikisu on 2018/06/15 13:45
So normally I enjoy using messenger to chat with friends and family members. But mainly friends. It’s free and I can’t complain like most people. But since your company released the latest update now anytime I go to click on messenger to read my messages or reply it blacks out and kicks me out. It does this either once or sometimes twice making me retry a third time just to read a simple message or reply... As you can imagine this is truly upsetting. Apparently my friends who also own iPhone 8 also have this issue... I am wondering is there a number or email we can get ahold of to report this bug or issue...? This way your company can fix the issue.. Unless your company is well aware of the issue then can you kindly fix it? Otherwise we won’t be using messenger anymore. It will not just be one customer you are losing here. It would be a lot of users from what I am seeing... Thanks...
Seriously bad
by WyatCharles on 2018/07/22 01:44
This is the first review I’ve ever written, and I have only taken the 15 minutes out of my day to do this because of how much I absolutely despise this app. The overfilled, disorganized structure of Messenger makes it feel more like a carnival game where someone is trying to steal my social security information than an actual talk/text app. Messenger is just a filthy excuse for DM’s that no one wanted and frankly could have been done well if it wasn’t born as a grotesque second head of the beast that is Facebook. Instagram alone blows Messenger out of the swamp water it floats in, and Instagram’s Direct Messages are INCLUDED IN THE APP ITSELF. Not only is this the worst app visually and mechanically speaking, Messenger is also so littered with bugs it could feed a family of raccoons for weeks on end. That’s why, after explaining to all 127 of my Facebook friends that Messenger decided to send a broken spammy link to without my consent and IN MY NAME, I deleted my Facebook and Messenger accounts. I don’t even care if no one reads this review. I just needed to vent my frustrations with this god forsaken, useless trash fire of an app. If you read all of this, please, do not use Messenger.
Mmmhhm.

Messenger has been nice.. I have been wondering about having selectable skins for a while now! I'm Hoping there is a selection 15 or more!?!?!?? I feel there should be strong thought into the variety too... Child friendly of course but it would be nice to see Messenger have something for us ✌🏼Trouble Maker✌🏼type.. 🤔 I have just constantly seen girly -ishhh stuff & would like to see one along the lines of troublesome acts😆😆 Cars/ATV don't always have to be the answer & I hope these aren't going to be an option.... Last thing....,,,, I think you should be able to use the messenger on the browser . I've had the problem with needing to send a urgent message but couldn't because the device owner wouldn't allow signing out. If people use the browser for FB, at least ask if they're the device owner or not or be accessible for the simple fact of a unsuccessful server !
Just one thing...

Make it so we decide whether someone can see if we are active or not. Maybe even how you block specific people, make it so we can select who can see if we are active or not...like a select audience. I have a stalker ex who I have a restraining order on who has made fake accounts as well as gone on mutual friends Facebooks and can see I’m active which is not comforting. This should be a part of privacy settings. I have messaged you guys about this and still have not gotten a response. I have searched thru different internet sites and they all state there is no way to completely turn off the active now option with the green dot. I know you can turn off where it says show active but it literally doesn’t do anything. My friend and I tested it and she sat right next to me when I turned it off and could still see that I was active with a green dot. If my suggestion is the intention and purpose of the current option then you need to fix it because it doesn’t work!
Needs work

Arabic messages should be right-justified like all other good apps that support Arabic. Messenger used to be like that but a long while ago, with a nasty update, the right-justification of Arabic text in messages was lost and never came back. This is really annoying for all Arabic-speaking users. Imagine you have to read English messages that are always right-justified and not left. Also, we’d love to see the ability to reply to a certain message like WhatsApp instead of just reacting to a message by an emoji. This should come as a very welcome feature by many users. I personally like Messenger better than WhatsApp because I don’t have to worry about backing it up. Plus, it’s not tied to a specific phone number of mine, so I can access it from any device connected to the Internet. This is very very handy, unlike WhatsApp. That’s why, if the above feature (replying to previous messages aka WhatsApp) was introduced in Messenger, it will easily become my chat app of choice.
Make it go back
by Ifesbob on 2017/12/19 23:00
This new update isn’t just not as aesthetically nice as the previous one, it’s not functionally as good. For one, going back through pictures takes a century whereas it used to be a lot faster. Secondly, the transition between functionalities such as adding a picture and typing is not as smooth as it used to be. You used to be able to just tap on the text box to start typing after sending a picture, now you have to manually switch back, which is annoying as hell. Also, for bigger devices such as iPads, you used to be able to expand the current conversation, and you still can, but the functionality of that feature as been hurt. The text box used to go all the way across the screen so you could see more of what you were typing at once, but it now doesn’t do that anymore. The only update the old version needed in terms of that menu was making the process of adding a gif smoother, none of the rest of this was necessary. I also don’t appreciate the unsolicited notification I got about syncing my contacts. Thanks, but I hate this update.

Awesome Messaging App (but one problem)
by A.F.C The Great on 2018/11/27 22:06
This is app is one of my favorite on the App Store & I use it frequently & more than any other messaging app. I’ve been using this app since it came out on the Google Play Store & Apple Store, which is quite a while. I like all the new features that have been added ever since, but now in the last update, there’s a bug that I would appreciate if you fixed it, which is receiving GIFs. Every time I send one the person who receives it isn’t able to open at first & the same thing happens to me when I receive them from other people. I’ve noticed that many of my friends are facing the same issue. Can you please fix this issue? But other than that this app is awesome. I will never stop using Facebook Messenger, cause unlike other messaging apps this one in particular, could do way many other things.
Love that I have an alternative

When owning a business sometimes he would like to keep your personal business separate from your Facebook or your phone number personal or business which ever you choose to use Facebook messenger for. (I’m going to assume that you’re using it for your business but if you’re not it still fits your secret love affairs hidden ? Ha IDFK and gives you the option to have privacy you can play games with you’re friends not on an iPhone , they’re starting to somewhat get some similarities and filters like other picture or “picture chatting” so yet again. Way to go Facebook for making “Facebook Messenger” and yet another loop hole to sell and make a profit off us dummies that should just make our own personal app. Society is way too lazy to do anything of the sort. I’ll end here, Cheers ! For another successful job well done.
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.
I didn't get what I wanted
by calvinrocks on 2018/08/09 04:02
So I talked to my grandma in the kitchen and she told me that we were going to cook dinner but dinner wasn't served. Basically I was sitting there wondering why the hell that happened. Yesterday when I spoke to her father explained that they were having some difficult times and that they needed to work together to fix them. After a long amount of time we talked about messenger and how stupid the app is. I called the cops and they came over to my house and arrested my grandma for using Messenger. I want to talk about steak 'n Shake. Very good place to be. You get good milkshakes and stuff like that. I got arrested for pulling up the drive-through. A song came on the radio. A good song. Did you know that if you play a song on the radio, you can hear it? I have people didn't know that. Oh wait, it's big it's because you're deaf. Today at school I had an assignment. It was called how bad is messenger. My grandma got out of jail for using Messenger because it wasn't actually a crime. I'm basically lying to you. The point of my review is, messenger is retarded. Worst app on the planet.
Invasive tactics much?
by Digital.Velocity on 2018/04/10 15:41
I have been using Facebook for several years. It’s a lovely way of wasting time and staying up to date on which celebrities have died recently and the scandals I should be angry about. Facebook messenger would be ten times better if the developers made it to stay out of my business. 1. Every time it suggests that I connect it with my contacts so that it can suggest people from their phone numbers, I tell it no, I don’t want to do that. And yet, somehow I’m still getting suggested messenger contacts from phone numbers in my address book. 2. M suggestions. Glad I figured out how to make it stop suggesting passive aggressive “you’re welcome” stickers when I’m in the middle of a fight. It doesn’t help me any. 3. It was only a matter of time until it started giving us ads on messenger, and I know that ads don’t go away once they are there, but I might as well say it. Hate being advertised to when I’m talking to my friends.
Quit reminding me to turn on notifications
by Annavon on 2018/09/21 20:40
Ok, I’m giving you one more star. The notification is no longer appearing in messenger, unless I look at my profile. There is still an alert to “turn on notifications”. My notifications ARE ON. I have the notifications on that I prefer. I discovered that the only way the reminder goes away is to turn on banners. I don’t WANT banners because they are annoying and pop up at inconvenient times. Stop micro managing your users! There should be a way to acknowledge the reminder that turns it off. Also, I noticed that there is a setting to turn off active status which will allow people to have more privacy. However, you have to change the setting in multiple places. It is not easy to find the setting either, especially in Facebook. With all of the updates, one would think you could correct some of the more pressing issues. Instead, you changed the font color on the predictive text. Really?
Show last login up to 24 hours please!
by musicspecialist71 on 2018/01/22 16:23
I use messenger to contact people I'm friends with on facebook when i don't have their phone number, so I do like the app. However, this latest update does not show the last login of people past 1 hour of their log in. This app use to show at least up to 24 hours of last login which was very nice, especially for family, friends, co-workers etc. We may not talk everyday but we can at least see that they are ok and active in a 24 hour period. And, If I can see someone has been active in the past 24 hours, then YES, I'm more likely to use Messenger!!!! I also have a son that lives many hours from me and he is very busy with family, job, etc., but if I can at least see where he has logged in within the last 24 hours, it gives me peace of mind that he is ok! Please give back to us and show the last login of people from at least 24 hours! Please!! Thank you!!
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
Logout is too difficult and interoperability with facebook has major setbacks
by Ezvq0930 on 2017/12/07 22:12
This is my first review ever in my lifetime, and will likely be my last. Facebook&Messenger is that horrible for non-frequent users. I only use the messenger when I need to contact someone not saved on my phone. So a few times a year maybe. For that reason I want the log out process to be easy so I won’t fail in the 10-step process, and continue to appear “active” to others every time I use the connected facebook app, which is the case that deserves another review of its own as one of their many horrible set backs despite being the biggest SNS service. Each time I use facebook messenger they have updated the app so the logout process I used before has a high chance of not being applicable anymore, which leaves me to scavenge for the latest method. Any app/service that relies on its annoying opt-out processes instead of improving their service in order to increase their user pool deserves to be ridiculed.
New update looks like it’s meant for a 4” screen
by timmc94 on 2019/01/18 05:47
To fix Facebook’s update notes for this release: “The brand new, redesigned Messenger app is now more annoying to use, harder to navigate and much less fun.” Great work guys. (That was sarcasm, which I’m pointing out because that’ll likely fly right over the heads of those who thought this redesign was a good idea) The new update for Messenger is beyond stupid. The text is HUGE — on my 6.5” screen it looks like it’s meant for a 4” or less screen. WHY MUST YOU KEEP RUINING THIS APP MORE AND MORE WITH EVERY UPDATE? Do you WANT users to leave? It’s not just looks, either: functionality is also being removed, which includes 3D Touch on the conversation list view which I used a ton to archive those “new friends” auto-conversations and various group chats without deleting them. Messenger is now, in one update, a shell of its former self. The worst it’s ever been. If it wasn’t such a convenient way to contact people I would have deleted it within 24 hours after I updated the app! Get your act together, Facebook.
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.
I really despise this app
by neosaganist on 2017/11/22 09:31
I have been trying to set up a digital environment that limits addictive phone use. I only put this app on my phone to check my messages when I absolutely cannot get to a desktop. I delete it immediately after. The whole notification to let you know that you don’t have notifications enabled is the nail in the coffin for me. I get that nothing is free. This app doesn’t provide any additional value that isn’t already supplied by the message app that came with my phone. It’s convenient to type my messages on a full size keyboard but google voice, hangouts, plus etc all allow for this while integrating with a dozen other useful apps. The only reason I use it is because Facebook forces me to on my mobile device (I’ve figured out how to send messages to one person without it but not receive). Stop ambushing me with notifications and give the illusion of choice and you might not have to force your app on us.
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.
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.
Slow sending & deletion option
by WeezerBeast on 2018/07/27 15:42
I mean it works fine most of the time but obviously as some people has already said it struggles to send messages to others. Honestly still waiting it to send a message to my cousin it’s been two days? Even if my internet is slow it still sends to everyone else so that makes no sense. Only other issue you guys need to add a delete button; again my internet is slow so I have to wait forever just to log into Facebook on my computer to go into messenger to delete things but I shouldn’t need to go on there to do this id appreciate it if someone could consider this idea to add this ability on the app especially when you log onto Facebook through the phone it doesn’t give you the same option and just sends you back to the app?
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
My messages don’t show as delivered
by Shelby&Ruby on 2018/07/18 04:39
My problem is that for the past month, I will send a message to someone and whether we are Facebook friends or not, my messages do not show as delivered. My Facebook Messenger app has the latest update, I just recently updated my iOS software and I’m still having this problem. I’ve tried googling it and haven’t found any solutions. Can you help me please? Also, I was wondering if you could make an option for us to be able to only accept messages from friends or friends of friends only in addition to the current one accepting messages from everyone? The messages I get from people I’m not connected with don’t always appear in the message requests folder first and instead show up on my home page in bold letters.
Totally ruined
by Olgasmother76 on 2018/05/20 13:50
Without a doubt this has become a controlling unnecessary app for me. The camera button for all the selfies I am not going to take. The pointless “who is active” and the other piece of clutter in the middle of what used to be my conversation list. SnapChat wannabe. And now it is a red notification dot saying my notifications aren’t turned on. They are. And yesterday this was joined by a banner that pops up constantly saying yet again that my notifications aren’t turned on. They are. Apparently they aren’t turned on enough for Facebook. Messenger has become a cluttered piece of garbage. I did send some screenshots to app support but I am sure they are too busy thinking up new clutter to add to this app. Wouldn’t want to actually fix anything. Thank goodness for iMessage bc I don't really need you. Actually I don't really need Facebook either. I would give you no stars bc you are that bad and I am that irritated but it seems I have to give something. So one star and I don't really mean it.
NOT HAPPY
by Deborahspet on 2019/02/08 08:59
Just sent this to all my friends on Facebook... Just a quick note, I’m no longer using Facebook Messenger!! Received a message from a friend, this message had his photograph attached, the body of the message advised that this persons “information” had been updated and there was a box to “Accept.” I clicked on it, trusting that it was my friend. The next screen showed his picture.....however, just underneath his photo and name was a message...”Using Messenger without Facebook...Logged in using a phone number from Nigeria, Account was recently created.” It gave a day and time created....and below to the left was a picture of him with a bubble that read, “Hello.” And attached to this was another “shadow bubble” with an emoji of a happy face and a + sign!!! I didn’t click on this, didn’t send a message, immediately blocked and deleted his account attachment and deleted the Messenger Application. I’ve had problems in the past with this platform and this was the last straw!!!! Please be careful!!!
BUGS: Lost audio in group talk!!
by GoldenVong1 on 2018/09/10 00:29
Thanks Messengers for the service. However, I am so sad to see the two following bugs: 1) I created a group chat of 6 people. Recently, the group will get no audio from either one person (if 5 people attend), or no audio of two people (if 6 people attend the call). We can still see video of each other, but each one can’t hear 1 or 2 people at the same time. Please fix this! Note: This bug happens recently, not before! Is there any restrictions to the number of people attending the group? 2) We attended a group talk of 5. We got audio lost of 1 person (different pairs couldn’t hear either one of us randomly). One person in our group slept or knocked out during the talk. We decided to kick her out and restarted the conversation so that 4 of us could hear each other. Unfortunately, when we all hung up (in hope that the call would be disconnected if there is only one person is still in the group call), the call is still there for us to join with the sleeping person presented!!! There is no way we could restart a new call without the sleeping person! To solve the problem, we had to hang up, created a new group of 4 and started a new call! Please think of this bug. Maybe if Messengers fixes the audio lost bug, then the second bug is fine to users. Thanks for reading.
The worst!!!
by icantstandthisterribleapp on 2018/05/30 02:02
I wish I could give this app less than one star!!! If you have more than one Facebook account, get ready to wish you could punch someone! In order to switch accounts it asked you if you know what you are doing about three times before you can switch. When you have finally clicked ok a million times and you are on your dog or baby’s account it tells you that you have a new message on your other account, you click ok a million times again only to find that the new message is “you are now friends with Johnny and you can message them.” Yeah!!! I freakin’ know how your terrible app works!!! That’s not a message!! I know I’m now friends with them! I just approved it!!! And I know I can message them!!! Thanks for wasting my time constantly! The fact that I’ve updated it over and over and they never fix it makes me want to strangle someone! I have never hated an app more, but I have a lot of friends who use it so I’m stuck with it. It’s the worst!
wow!
by zzaakkaattaakk on 2018/03/25 08:08
facebook is really run by evil Trolls to make you use this in place of the easy jabber compatible chats they had for a bit. facebook and google BOTH said making us stick to larger, purposely buggier, proprietary apps seems to keep more users on one site. you can only make a lotta money on ads and selling user data if you have a lot more than a lot. government funding is even better because backdoors on one side get you frontdoors into law. they either have to make your life harder or they have to wait longer to bank on a future web that is FOR communication that can support other world advantages, rather than baiting people into another parasitic money mine. the money is supposed to support the venture for the goal of the venture. you should not get into anything important to living with the end goal of money. would you be a doctor or teacher that holds lives for Ransom? or rather the point of bothering is to fix people so they can get onto the real useful ways to profit
The Good, The Bad, and The Annoying

The Good: • Just about everyone I know has FB and therefore some form of Messenger. Super handy! • We are a military family who has lived abroad for several years. I love that I can call friends and family through the app • I love that I can share and receive pictures, videos, and even some documents so easily through the app The Bad (and kind of infuriating): • For all the talk of how we have choice with privacy, I do NOT understand why I can’t turn off the little green dot when I’m active (even if I toggle off the “chat” - my son and I tested it)! • To go along with my complaint above, WHY is it anyone’s business how long ago I was active? This should be a choice. Apps like WhatsApp give users this freedom to choose. The Annoying: • Dear Facebook Messenger, you are NOT Snapchat. Please stop trying to be Snapchat. If I wanted to have filters and things in my way every time I want to take a picture. Then I’d use Snapchat. You’re trying to be like them isn’t competition - it’s annoying. The people who want Messenger stay with Messenger. Please stop. • I am confused about why the feature to pay/send/receive money is available in some accounts and devices and not all. You might be a pretty good competitor to PayPal of the feature were available to all. So...there you have it: The Good, The Bad, and the Annoying
What’s the point?

My account keeps getting locked out for “suspicious activity”. I end up having to send facebook a picture to prove I am who I say I am. When I get my account back after a few days it never tells me what the suspicious activity was. This happens around once a month. Now I’m locked out due to “suspicious activity” once again. But everytime I try to send the image the page refreshes and says that my network isn’t stable and to connect to a better network. And it also gets rid of the file I selected. I’ve tried changing the file type of the picture. From JPG to PNG I’ve tried uploading different pictures all of me. And of different file types all with no luck. Im not making another Facebook account. I’ve already had to do that once due to losing my phone. It’s way to much work to re-add all of my friends and family. Plus I’ll probably still have to deal with getting locked out all the time. So I guess I’m done using Facebook.
Destin Florida
by B Emmons on 2018/07/10 18:21
I live near the beach 12 years and we left there three years ago to move to South Carolina. I do not like South Carolina my white sandy beaches gave me peace. At my age and I love standing on the edge of the water I just thanking God for the beauty of Destin beach it is just so gorgeous ,and I love the harbor walk and I miss all of that so much. it’s very difficult to be happy here when you’ve had the beach life. I am Bonnie Emmons I really would like to win a vacation because I’ve never wished so much to get back to Destin .i probably have a few years left but you can bet that if I don’t win eventually I get back down there. I love all the people there ,they were wonderful people and somebody’s going to be very happy with his prize thank you for the opportunity.
Facebook names
by Asap_jay on 2018/12/08 21:29
I am highly irritated because everyone one else has gang names and cussing in their name on Facebook, but I have just a name that I am called and they won’t accept it. I honestly don’t think it’s fair because in people bio it has a lot of negative things in it about black people and how other people are not welcomed. I don’t think that’s fair. I mean you want me to send something to show you what I’m called in my everyday life that’s not cool, maybe I don’t want to be called that maybe I was to be called something different. I mean if your going to come after me than we are going to change everyone who has a bad name. If I have to report them myself I will do so because that’s unfair that I can’t keep my name but other people can. I don’t think I’m going to keep this app. I am things about deleting it and that’s just what it’s going to have to be. So because my name is a problem, it won’t let me log in to my messenger which is stupid but whatever
It was fine 2 days ago! 😡
by psalm91bagsolutionista on 2018/10/05 04:19
While messaging on Facebook on a laptop is okay, I use this app for personal and business while on the go. However, the recent update 2 days ago has caused me so much frustration that I can’t even connect to my own profile without getting an error message that says I’ve been sent too may confirmations! Well, if I’ve actually GOTTEN ONE, then I would have confirmed it and wouldn’t have to write this bad review!! But I’ve gotten NOTHING back and like I said, it’s been 2 days!! What gives!?! I’m not even able to verify my own phone number because it keeps telling me I have no connection when clearly, I’m always in a WiFi zone, even in my car OR I’ve tried too many times!?! Send me confirmation FROM THE FIRST TIME I’VE TRIED IT TWO DAY AGO!!! Geez!! And stop saying “we’re making it better for you” with your standard automated message on the Update History when all you’ve done is prevented me from even logging in! 😡 Fix it AGAIN!!
Random Update on 1/8/19 I didn’t approve/Lots of old features moved / Missing

I’m disappointed at the fact FB didn’t give us a heads up or even send a notification of some sort letting us know it was going to update messenger! Please, at least, address the issues and explain the purpose/reasons for this update. It looks like the new update is zoomed in, everything is bigger and there’s lots of unnecessary white blank spaces all throughout each page. Not to mention the GAMES page! It’s Gone. I had to manually type the game I wanted to play in the search bar, and when I did about 5 other different things/pages popped up along with the game. And I don’t see why we need two different pages to view peoples story’s on. Just pick one, THE HOME PAGE! Honestly, the home page was fine. Aside from everything I dislike on the H.P., one thing I do like is swiping left on each message to see my opinions. (but please bring back the archive option) Some feedback: HP: Change it back to the original -Call it either Chats or Messages, not both. (“New chat requests or new message requests”) ACTIVE:Instead of the lime color to show who’s active change it back to green and add our calls on the same page GAMES: bring back and leave it ALL on one page GROUPS/DISCOVER: Go ahead and put the groups/discover options together, at least let us still be able to find them.
