Message Restrictions
by Jöösh on 2019/04/18 23:07
I want to delete specific messages from a conversation that has been blocked by another person. However, the fact that they have blocked my messages stops me from clearing their nickname, resetting the conversation emoji back to its default setting and deleting messages. What the heck?

211 versions later and STILL CRAP!
by SEAWISE SEAWISE on 2019/04/18 09:59
NOW THIS APP WAITS TO LOAD ALL ADS BEFORE YOUR MESSAGES PHOTOS TAKEN IN THIS APP ARE VERY DARK AND BLURRY FOR NO REASON! STARTS RANDOMLY SENDING STICKERS AND OPENING OTHER CRAP BLOAT FEATURES IN THE MIDDLE OF TYPING! SOMETIMES APP WONT EVEN OPEN! VERY VERY LAGGY ON IPHONE 8 PLUS! Messaging is now the LEAST ACCESSIBLE FEATURE, and this app is called MESSENGER! Starts randomly sending stickers IN THE MIDDLE OF TYPING A MESSAGE! Want to save a photo? If you do, you have to watch the keyboard pop up and down 5 times FOR EVERY PHOTO YOU SAVE!!!!! what used to take 5 seconds now takes a minute per photo because the keyboard has to pop up and go away 100 times before you can even press save!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STICKERS ARE NOW VERY SLOW TO SEND AND VERY DELAYED AFTER TAPPIG THEM! Now photos taken with the camera are VERY DARK even in bright light and so dark the screen is black in camera mode so you can't even see if you getting your picture right!!!!!!! NOW THERES EVEN MORE CRAP BLOCKING ACCESS TO CONVERSATIONS! AND THE SCREENSHOTS OF COURSE ARENT UPDATED TO SHOW THIS CRAP AND ITS NEVER MENTIONED IN THE CHANGE LOG!!!!!!!!! SCREENSHOTS STILL NOT UPDATED TO SHOW HOW HORRIBLE THE LAYOUT IS!!!!!! CLEARLY THEY ARE HIDING IT UNTIL YOU DOWNLOAD IT AND SEE HOW MUCH OF A CONFUSING MESS IT REALLY IS! Anyone notice the screenshots for this app are STILL not updated to show the horrible crap new layout? And the change log is NEVER UPDATED! This should NOT BE ALLOWED BY APPLE! NO MORE EASY QUICK WAY TO SEND PHOTOS WHILE IN A CONVERSATION! now you have to press the camera button on the main screen, then chose who to send the photo to, then go back, then open your conversation to resume talking. NO MORE CAMERA BUTTON WHILE IN CONVERSATION! Adds too many unnecessary steps and interface is very clunky and hard to navigate, and sections you hide will pop back up after 5 minutes, allowing you to have only 2 conversations in the app Version is now all the way up to 98 and STILL CANT TAKE PHOTOS! Still has the same problem when trying to take photos. Pressing the button to take a photo just makes the "TINK!" Sound but never actually focuses or takes a photo. Also you can only see 2 conversations because they still show lots of extra things in the middle of your conversation list and force you to scroll through 2 pages of junk to see your conversations. "Hide" feature for the useless junk sections only stays for 5 minutes before it all reappears again! Update for 10/12/2016 update: CANT TAKE PHOTOS! messenger makes the "tink" sound when pressing the button to take a photo but it never ends up taking the photo or even trying to focus. To send a photo you must use the camera app then go back to messenger find the photo and send it. Also you can no longer scroll up and respond to messages farther up in your chat history. Touching the keyboard causes it to scroll all the way back to the bottom again Anyone else find it quite funny how the screenshots don't show the messed up new layout even after 30 updates? 5 more updates in a week and STILL stuck with the messed up layout that puts conversations at the very bottom of the main screen. ANOTHER update (11 in the past 5 days) and the layout is STILL all cluttered with the stupid new layout and you can only have 3 conversations within the app, if you have more you have to find them on your computer! Conversations are now all scrambled with no logical order. Very hard to find conversations now without the "recent" tab. Also the change log hasn't been updated since version 1.0. Why do you not show your sloppy layout in the app photos? The photos still show the neatly arranged "recents" tab which is replaced by the "home tab" that lists the same person 3 times

ALLOW USERS TO EASILY SEE ALL SHARED FILES IN A CHAT
by C'est la vie mon cheri on 2019/04/18 03:17
Why is this simple productivity feature not available? I want to be able to click on a chat, and above "shared photos", see a "shared attachments" library where I can easily find and download files that were previously sent in the chat. iMessage has this feature. It is a huge waste of my time to scroll back through chat history and find exactly when the file was sent, or spend time guessing the title of the file to search for. Another idea, allow us to see shared links too (hipchat has this feature) I don't care about seeing my friend's messenger stories / the other random social updates your app has been focused on. Please give us a chat feature that is actually USEFUL.

Review
by Sinan Otto on 2019/04/18 01:33
I really don’t want to update the new Messenger. I like it the way it is. I’m not interested seeing my “friends” stories when I’m “talking “ to someone else. And vice versa. I’m sure everyone would like to have some privacy and don’t want to see the conversations of friends or friends. At least I don’t. So please release me from this update. I know you mean well and did a lot of research and stuff. For me, I don’t want it. I keep getting update messages when I log in. Is there an option to decline? I like Messenger, just don’t want to be forced into something. Thank you so much for your understanding. I appreciate your hard work.👏

I hate that I have to use this app. I have no interest in having a second Facebook app on my phone and very rarely check or respond to my messages. Pulling this functionality out of the main app makes this feature useless to me.

I don’t know what happened with the update, but I am not able to use the app anymore. It kept asking to put in my phone number every time I opened it, and when I tried, it said it failed and couldn’t be done. Then I tried deleting the app to reinstall, but now it won’t even install. I communicate with people all the time through this app, so this is really stressful. Please fix this ASAP

Don’t do this AWFUL update. You’ll be sorryyy
by BreeInGilbertAZ on 2019/04/17 09:15
So, Facebook says “Your messenger is out of date” on the top of your screen. IGNORE IT! It’s merely a scare tactic to get you pummeled with ads in the new update that’s a clustercopulation. Putting it nicely, they’re trying to intimidate you into eating SH!T. Don’t buy into their scare tactic. You’re not a prisoner of The Human Caterpillar (worst film ever) or caught in the Matrix one of the best. THINK for YOURSELF. You CAN rebel and hold out against these God-awful excremental updates. Just KEEP USING YOUR EXISTING APP. It still works - for now. Ignore their prompt to update, no matter how great the temptation. You’ll be sorry if you conform. #REBEL against authoritarianism.✅

I love Messenger, it’s how I keep In touch with my besties. I just really wish there was an option button record and save our video chat, now for someone like me this would be something I can keep forever after video chatting with all my BFFs. We don’t live close by so their memories are so precious to me, if I can just have this it would mean the world to me. It could probably mean the world someone else as well who would want to replay back their video chat with someone so close and so dear in their hearts

Stop already

DON'T FORCE ME TO UPDATE.
by Bakery Joe isn't happy on 2019/04/16 18:19
DO NOT FORCE ME TO UPDATE. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT NEW FEATURES WHICH ONLY MAKE THE APP BLOATWARE AND DRAINS THE BATTERY. IT IS A CHATTING APP AND DOES NOT NEED MANY FEATURES. App developers don’t care or read these reviews. If I want to go see their stories I will but don’t plague my message chat with it. Don’t spam my list of messages with stupid ads and now you want to spam me with automatically playing ads. Nope!

Constant Updates
by AidanBoBaidan on 2019/04/16 15:47
I rarely write reviews. And to be honest I rarely hop on Facebook, but my friends send me post all the time though messenger and I check them frequently. It’s really annoying that I can be on messenger and then when I click on the post I’ve been sent it says there is an update, have that be a notification when I open the app. I get a new update every week and it is fairly frustrating. Other than that it works perfectly, I don’t know why they made a separate app but I guess its for more control

I have been using messenger for two years now. Still it's great that you can text other people, play games, and also send stickers. You even get to FaceTime people with filters too! Though I have some problems with it recently. First of all, I really don't want to wave to other people. That really annoys me a lot. I mean, some people are busy doing stuff! I know, I know, that you want us to have a lovely chat and stuff. But can you PLEASE remove the waving thing?!? Second of all, the filters. I used to take pictures or do vines. But TODAY, That is April 14, I found out that the FILTERS WERE DELETED!!! Only the stickers were available! That made me really upset about it. Since I used it every time for my pictures and vines! I hope you can really BRING THEM BACK MESSENGER!!! It really was a bummer! Finally, when you play the games and you stop, there is a chat where you can talk to them! And this is ALSO BUGGING ME! No Offense, but can you make it stop! I know you worked hard on it, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DO THAT!!! Since then, I will be giving it a four star review since everything else is fine. I am also getting the urge to delete Messenger. So I hope you CAN FIX THIS!! Thank you. A User from Messenger.
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.
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.
Sick, Sick, Sick
by philmfan on 2019/03/31 18:37
Once again I’m being forced to reinstall messenger??!! And you’ve added more surveillance features?! Someone else has already noted your B.S. notification policy (aka consumer manipulation and dominance strategy). Far as sending messages to people, yeah the app does that but so do the simplest message apps, and that’s your ONLY ONLY ONLY reason to exist as an app in the first place. Offer a simplified version, messages only, simple one time only turn off notifications option, and no video. That’s what a stand up company would do; but no, you’re NOT stand-up, are you? That’s not your way - you’re just sneaky, devious, and manipulative. There is no “convenience” to any of this, no “we’re just doing it to give you more options” about it. Ha ha ha, but the sick joke is on ME isn’t it? Eventually I’ll probably just reinstall the stupid thing and you know it. Your entire philosophy is about dominance if your consumers, isn’t it? What an ugly way to gain business, what a perverted way to treat your consumers. Eventually this is going to come back to bite you in the rear. Let’s see just how long it takes. I pity anyone who glurps and slurps down anything FB feeds them without complaint. The self-hatred you engender within me will one day soon drive me away.
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!!!
App Continues to Not Open Due to “[Having] Any Privacy Restrictions” a Few Updates Ago
by PadLly on 2019/03/25 15:28
As happened with the latest Facebook update now, even though I still receive texts from it (for now), am asked to continually update everytime, and have used the app on my devices for years, I’m now told in the App Store that I have to “turn off privacy restrictions” in order to open either app. Messenger disappeared a while ago and now, even the icons for both have disappeared on both of my non-laptop or computer but widely used types of smart devices. My privacy restrictions are universal for all apps as well as long-standing. Also, while when I click the text message update links and am diverted to the less user-friendly device version on the internet, it continues to ask me to open my Messenger app when I try to see my messages. I used to be a very frequent user of both apps randomly throughout the day, and the site in general for even more years, but it’s been getting a bit cumbersome. It also feels a bit strange that one would have to turn off their privacy restrictions in order to access a certain app, in general.
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!
not that this review will ever get me anywhere but

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.
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.
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.
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.
NO MORE GOOD.

You used to be great but now awful. Have noticed how idiot that wave is??? It is ridiculous. All the time. Such such waved you! So what????rsrsdsr. I have to ignore on purpose for me considering it too stupid and unnecessary . Also I cannot answer to specific message. I cannot delete. It is very short recording time. Before I could send multiple messages at once for a friend or friends. The new messenger is useless. I have not checked messages there. Too much control. I cannot pause videos. Awful. So Stupid. Also too many stupid faces. Very idiotic. Who designed it that way had no good childhood. Rsrsrs Such person needs a psychiatric help. Messenger is what the name says: message. It is not for too many memes or faces. I would rather have fun with sex or hanging with friends than applying too much of those faces. Stop changing all the time. You removed a good feature that was to send multiple post at once. It sucking to add contacts. You complicated. The best way is not to use you. Stop too many stupid faces.
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
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!!!
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.
Problems
by Ropted on 2019/04/16 01:16
Can it be fixed so people have a reply for each topic of conversation? Gets confusing for people to stay on the subject. Also people tend to not look above to read previous comments. That’s aggravating. Why does it tell when people erase things. People get suspicious when the message comes up. They want to know what was erased. No need for that. Also I don’t understand when I want to delete something it shows Remove for you and Remove for everyone. If I’m talking to one person - why would I just want it removed for me? And who is everyone? If that comes up - I’m thinking - who did it go to. I don’t talk to groups of people. I also worry that certain people with knowledge know how to look at a person’s Messenger. How can I be assured that doesn’t happen?? I’ve got everything in messenger settings turned off that has an on/off button.
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.
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!!
Some bugs with the latest redesign and suggestions
by HawkEye1194 on 2019/02/01 20:00
There is a bug after the latest recent redesign of the app. Sometimes when I open the app it uses the old design but when I close and reopen the app from multitasking the app then correctly displays the new designed app. This happens on my iPhone XS Max with iOS 12.1.2 Suggestions: -Apple Watch app needs improvement although it has gotten a lot better recently in that it actually works correctly now. It is annoying how every time you open the app you have to let it sync the messages again. I feel like it should stay in sync in the background if that is possible with the latest watchOS. -We need an Apple Carplay app to read messages while in the car. This would be amazing to have in the car.
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.
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

I want to delete specific messages from a conversation that has been blocked by another person. However, the fact that they have blocked my messages stops me from clearing their nickname, resetting the conversation emoji back to its default setting and deleting messages. What the heck?

Messaging is now the LEAST ACCESSIBLE FEATURE, and this app is called MESSENGER! Starts randomly sending stickers IN THE MIDDLE OF TYPING A MESSAGE! Want to save a photo? If you do, you have to watch the keyboard pop up and down 5 times FOR EVERY PHOTO YOU SAVE!!!!! what used to take 5 seconds now takes a minute per photo because the keyboard has to pop up and go away 100 times before you can even press save!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STICKERS ARE NOW VERY SLOW TO SEND AND VERY DELAYED AFTER TAPPIG THEM! Now photos taken with the camera are VERY DARK even in bright light and so dark the screen is black in camera mode so you can't even see if you getting your picture right!!!!!!! NOW THERES EVEN MORE CRAP BLOCKING ACCESS TO CONVERSATIONS! AND THE SCREENSHOTS OF COURSE ARENT UPDATED TO SHOW THIS CRAP AND ITS NEVER MENTIONED IN THE CHANGE LOG!!!!!!!!! SCREENSHOTS STILL NOT UPDATED TO SHOW HOW HORRIBLE THE LAYOUT IS!!!!!! CLEARLY THEY ARE HIDING IT UNTIL YOU DOWNLOAD IT AND SEE HOW MUCH OF A CONFUSING MESS IT REALLY IS! Anyone notice the screenshots for this app are STILL not updated to show the horrible crap new layout? And the change log is NEVER UPDATED! This should NOT BE ALLOWED BY APPLE! NO MORE EASY QUICK WAY TO SEND PHOTOS WHILE IN A CONVERSATION! now you have to press the camera button on the main screen, then chose who to send the photo to, then go back, then open your conversation to resume talking. NO MORE CAMERA BUTTON WHILE IN CONVERSATION! Adds too many unnecessary steps and interface is very clunky and hard to navigate, and sections you hide will pop back up after 5 minutes, allowing you to have only 2 conversations in the app Version is now all the way up to 98 and STILL CANT TAKE PHOTOS! Still has the same problem when trying to take photos. Pressing the button to take a photo just makes the "TINK!" Sound but never actually focuses or takes a photo. Also you can only see 2 conversations because they still show lots of extra things in the middle of your conversation list and force you to scroll through 2 pages of junk to see your conversations. "Hide" feature for the useless junk sections only stays for 5 minutes before it all reappears again! Update for 10/12/2016 update: CANT TAKE PHOTOS! messenger makes the "tink" sound when pressing the button to take a photo but it never ends up taking the photo or even trying to focus. To send a photo you must use the camera app then go back to messenger find the photo and send it. Also you can no longer scroll up and respond to messages farther up in your chat history. Touching the keyboard causes it to scroll all the way back to the bottom again Anyone else find it quite funny how the screenshots don't show the messed up new layout even after 30 updates? 5 more updates in a week and STILL stuck with the messed up layout that puts conversations at the very bottom of the main screen. ANOTHER update (11 in the past 5 days) and the layout is STILL all cluttered with the stupid new layout and you can only have 3 conversations within the app, if you have more you have to find them on your computer! Conversations are now all scrambled with no logical order. Very hard to find conversations now without the "recent" tab. Also the change log hasn't been updated since version 1.0. Why do you not show your sloppy layout in the app photos? The photos still show the neatly arranged "recents" tab which is replaced by the "home tab" that lists the same person 3 times

ALLOW USERS TO EASILY SEE ALL SHARED FILES IN A CHAT
by C'est la vie mon cheri on 2019/04/18 03:17
Why is this simple productivity feature not available? I want to be able to click on a chat, and above "shared photos", see a "shared attachments" library where I can easily find and download files that were previously sent in the chat. iMessage has this feature. It is a huge waste of my time to scroll back through chat history and find exactly when the file was sent, or spend time guessing the title of the file to search for. Another idea, allow us to see shared links too (hipchat has this feature) I don't care about seeing my friend's messenger stories / the other random social updates your app has been focused on. Please give us a chat feature that is actually USEFUL.

Review
by Sinan Otto on 2019/04/18 01:33
I really don’t want to update the new Messenger. I like it the way it is. I’m not interested seeing my “friends” stories when I’m “talking “ to someone else. And vice versa. I’m sure everyone would like to have some privacy and don’t want to see the conversations of friends or friends. At least I don’t. So please release me from this update. I know you mean well and did a lot of research and stuff. For me, I don’t want it. I keep getting update messages when I log in. Is there an option to decline? I like Messenger, just don’t want to be forced into something. Thank you so much for your understanding. I appreciate your hard work.👏

I hate that I have to use this app. I have no interest in having a second Facebook app on my phone and very rarely check or respond to my messages. Pulling this functionality out of the main app makes this feature useless to me.

I don’t know what happened with the update, but I am not able to use the app anymore. It kept asking to put in my phone number every time I opened it, and when I tried, it said it failed and couldn’t be done. Then I tried deleting the app to reinstall, but now it won’t even install. I communicate with people all the time through this app, so this is really stressful. Please fix this ASAP

Don’t do this AWFUL update. You’ll be sorryyy
by BreeInGilbertAZ on 2019/04/17 09:15
So, Facebook says “Your messenger is out of date” on the top of your screen. IGNORE IT! It’s merely a scare tactic to get you pummeled with ads in the new update that’s a clustercopulation. Putting it nicely, they’re trying to intimidate you into eating SH!T. Don’t buy into their scare tactic. You’re not a prisoner of The Human Caterpillar (worst film ever) or caught in the Matrix one of the best. THINK for YOURSELF. You CAN rebel and hold out against these God-awful excremental updates. Just KEEP USING YOUR EXISTING APP. It still works - for now. Ignore their prompt to update, no matter how great the temptation. You’ll be sorry if you conform. #REBEL against authoritarianism.✅

I love Messenger, it’s how I keep In touch with my besties. I just really wish there was an option button record and save our video chat, now for someone like me this would be something I can keep forever after video chatting with all my BFFs. We don’t live close by so their memories are so precious to me, if I can just have this it would mean the world to me. It could probably mean the world someone else as well who would want to replay back their video chat with someone so close and so dear in their hearts

DO NOT FORCE ME TO UPDATE. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT NEW FEATURES WHICH ONLY MAKE THE APP BLOATWARE AND DRAINS THE BATTERY. IT IS A CHATTING APP AND DOES NOT NEED MANY FEATURES. App developers don’t care or read these reviews. If I want to go see their stories I will but don’t plague my message chat with it. Don’t spam my list of messages with stupid ads and now you want to spam me with automatically playing ads. Nope!

Constant Updates
by AidanBoBaidan on 2019/04/16 15:47
I rarely write reviews. And to be honest I rarely hop on Facebook, but my friends send me post all the time though messenger and I check them frequently. It’s really annoying that I can be on messenger and then when I click on the post I’ve been sent it says there is an update, have that be a notification when I open the app. I get a new update every week and it is fairly frustrating. Other than that it works perfectly, I don’t know why they made a separate app but I guess its for more control

Problems about Messenger
by AngelLola820 on 2019/04/14 19:03
I have been using messenger for two years now. Still it's great that you can text other people, play games, and also send stickers. You even get to FaceTime people with filters too! Though I have some problems with it recently. First of all, I really don't want to wave to other people. That really annoys me a lot. I mean, some people are busy doing stuff! I know, I know, that you want us to have a lovely chat and stuff. But can you PLEASE remove the waving thing?!? Second of all, the filters. I used to take pictures or do vines. But TODAY, That is April 14, I found out that the FILTERS WERE DELETED!!! Only the stickers were available! That made me really upset about it. Since I used it every time for my pictures and vines! I hope you can really BRING THEM BACK MESSENGER!!! It really was a bummer! Finally, when you play the games and you stop, there is a chat where you can talk to them! And this is ALSO BUGGING ME! No Offense, but can you make it stop! I know you worked hard on it, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DO THAT!!! Since then, I will be giving it a four star review since everything else is fine. I am also getting the urge to delete Messenger. So I hope you CAN FIX THIS!! Thank you. A User from Messenger.
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.
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.
Sick, Sick, Sick
by philmfan on 2019/03/31 18:37
Once again I’m being forced to reinstall messenger??!! And you’ve added more surveillance features?! Someone else has already noted your B.S. notification policy (aka consumer manipulation and dominance strategy). Far as sending messages to people, yeah the app does that but so do the simplest message apps, and that’s your ONLY ONLY ONLY reason to exist as an app in the first place. Offer a simplified version, messages only, simple one time only turn off notifications option, and no video. That’s what a stand up company would do; but no, you’re NOT stand-up, are you? That’s not your way - you’re just sneaky, devious, and manipulative. There is no “convenience” to any of this, no “we’re just doing it to give you more options” about it. Ha ha ha, but the sick joke is on ME isn’t it? Eventually I’ll probably just reinstall the stupid thing and you know it. Your entire philosophy is about dominance if your consumers, isn’t it? What an ugly way to gain business, what a perverted way to treat your consumers. Eventually this is going to come back to bite you in the rear. Let’s see just how long it takes. I pity anyone who glurps and slurps down anything FB feeds them without complaint. The self-hatred you engender within me will one day soon drive me away.
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!!!
App Continues to Not Open Due to “[Having] Any Privacy Restrictions” a Few Updates Ago
by PadLly on 2019/03/25 15:28
As happened with the latest Facebook update now, even though I still receive texts from it (for now), am asked to continually update everytime, and have used the app on my devices for years, I’m now told in the App Store that I have to “turn off privacy restrictions” in order to open either app. Messenger disappeared a while ago and now, even the icons for both have disappeared on both of my non-laptop or computer but widely used types of smart devices. My privacy restrictions are universal for all apps as well as long-standing. Also, while when I click the text message update links and am diverted to the less user-friendly device version on the internet, it continues to ask me to open my Messenger app when I try to see my messages. I used to be a very frequent user of both apps randomly throughout the day, and the site in general for even more years, but it’s been getting a bit cumbersome. It also feels a bit strange that one would have to turn off their privacy restrictions in order to access a certain app, in general.
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

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.
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.
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.
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.
NO MORE GOOD.
by Christina Lax Rio on 2019/03/21 07:10
You used to be great but now awful. Have noticed how idiot that wave is??? It is ridiculous. All the time. Such such waved you! So what????rsrsdsr. I have to ignore on purpose for me considering it too stupid and unnecessary . Also I cannot answer to specific message. I cannot delete. It is very short recording time. Before I could send multiple messages at once for a friend or friends. The new messenger is useless. I have not checked messages there. Too much control. I cannot pause videos. Awful. So Stupid. Also too many stupid faces. Very idiotic. Who designed it that way had no good childhood. Rsrsrs Such person needs a psychiatric help. Messenger is what the name says: message. It is not for too many memes or faces. I would rather have fun with sex or hanging with friends than applying too much of those faces. Stop changing all the time. You removed a good feature that was to send multiple post at once. It sucking to add contacts. You complicated. The best way is not to use you. Stop too many stupid faces.
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
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!!!
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.
Problems
by Ropted on 2019/04/16 01:16
Can it be fixed so people have a reply for each topic of conversation? Gets confusing for people to stay on the subject. Also people tend to not look above to read previous comments. That’s aggravating. Why does it tell when people erase things. People get suspicious when the message comes up. They want to know what was erased. No need for that. Also I don’t understand when I want to delete something it shows Remove for you and Remove for everyone. If I’m talking to one person - why would I just want it removed for me? And who is everyone? If that comes up - I’m thinking - who did it go to. I don’t talk to groups of people. I also worry that certain people with knowledge know how to look at a person’s Messenger. How can I be assured that doesn’t happen?? I’ve got everything in messenger settings turned off that has an on/off button.
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.
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!!
Some bugs with the latest redesign and suggestions
by HawkEye1194 on 2019/02/01 20:00
There is a bug after the latest recent redesign of the app. Sometimes when I open the app it uses the old design but when I close and reopen the app from multitasking the app then correctly displays the new designed app. This happens on my iPhone XS Max with iOS 12.1.2 Suggestions: -Apple Watch app needs improvement although it has gotten a lot better recently in that it actually works correctly now. It is annoying how every time you open the app you have to let it sync the messages again. I feel like it should stay in sync in the background if that is possible with the latest watchOS. -We need an Apple Carplay app to read messages while in the car. This would be amazing to have in the car.
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.
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
