    I enjoyed the app,but a little dissappointed because even though I could send messages,it will still be showing sending and I will not know if the message has been delivered until I turn on my data.Also,I don't receive messages when offline

    Although this is a good app it does have an issue. Whenever I want to call a group chat the call button doesn't show up, but I can call people individually. Please fix this!

    Lightweight and compact, but mediocre. Developer need to start writing changelog and also stop add/remove features without informing users. It looks like FB policy to handle information sharing in a bad way. FB-task: prove me wrong😁

    Best app for everything. Sending, receiving money, selling on marketplace, best live chat, and great security. All my photos are retrievable quickly and clearly without taking up space on my phone.

    I agree with all the previous reviews before me. I'll add one more glitch I'm not thrilled about. It will show a message I send as delivered but that's it. Not like on the other, regular version of the app that would show if the recipient had opened and read it or not.

  • New Update is Trash, Useless (iOS) Apr 4, 2020

    By Lady Ash A.
    The new update is absolutely disgusting. It makes this app not only visibly unappealing, but the new UI is hard to use, foolhardy, and removes many useful features. I also keep having problems with crashing. The new online/offline status is buggy and gets stuck. Phone calls are buggy too and stopped displaying properly. Messages can no longer be easily copied, deleted or forwarded. The old menu was easier. I preferred the swipe reply feature. Messages are no longer easy to reply to in notifications either. Pictures are not easy to send. I used to like this app because of the little unique things like the old cute reactions, chat colors, and balloons and hearts that you could catch. Now, they are all gone. I used to love using stickers, but the system is all messed up now as your most recent stickers and the packs are harder to find. I do not like the excess spacing between packs either. I am not exaggerating to say that I hate this new update. I have recommended that people do not update if they still have an older version. Many of my friends have agreed with me and say that this new version glitchy, problematic, and ugly. I have stopped using it as much because it is useless now. What did you do to this app?

  • Glitchy to the point of unusable. Jul 21, 2020

    By what do you mean name taken
    For the longest time, Facebook messenger with my go to for communication. I didn’t have everyone’s phone number and not many of my contacts used something like WhatsApp, but everyone has a Facebook account. This app is so glitchy that it’s finally broken me of Facebook period. I never really used the service as a social media platform to begin with, but it was a decent communication service. Or would have been. For the majority of this year, the software has been unreliable, glitchy, and riddled with bugs. It consistently fails to give notifications, occasionally forgets that I had sent a message, and by far the worst glitch: it will randomly kick me out of conversations while I’m reading them or typing in them and put me back at the contacts screen. And of course, it doesn’t save what I had been typing. This means that something as simple as sending a message can require you to start typing it two or five times before you can actually send one. There is no excuse for a company that big to deliver software this crappy, especially given how much shady crap they are otherwise up to involving user data. Check please, I am done.

    Very Annoying!!! Please fix the picture sending bug....everytime I try to send a picture the app closes and takes me back to the chat room without sending the picture AT ALL. Everything else is fine but it's a deal breaker for this.

  • Staple features removed and NOW breaking bugs Apr 9, 2020

    By AlexN.64-Bit
    Honestly a lot of the features being removed I get. Especially with the app being rebuilt from the ground up. Within the last day or so going into any conversation *instead of just one from a recent bug report* I will be kicked out back to the conversation selection screen with the animation like I swiped to go back there myself but I didn’t. And even if I’m in the middle of typing it can happen to. On top of whatever was being typed being gone when *trying* to go back to the conversation. Also when it force backs you out some reason all the conversations flash out of existence for a few seconds. I was going to say maybe it was just my phone. I restarted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled and even cleared app data to no avail. But it also happens on my IPhone SE which is on the latest 13.4.1 update like my 11 Pro max right now. So I pretty much can’t reliably use messenger now on any of my phones and have to go to a laptop. I’m also very confused as to the fact this just started happening today. And not the day of the update 🤔

  • Facebook messenger need to pickup the pace Aug 20, 2018

    By DIGBYS XPAND
    Facebook messenger is seriously lacking behind with simple and small functions that can make it great. Facebook has friends that we do not want to share our phone numbers with to be able to communicate on other great and easy to converse instant messaging apps. One of those function is to be able to reply directly to a particular message. So difficult to handle conversation on Facebook as it doesn’t allow for different topics to be discussed concurrently just with a reply functionality. Most times when you go back to an old discussion during a new one the whole thing becomes confusing and then takes longer to type and clarify things with who you are chatting with. I can have a discussion in 3 mins on other apps and that same conversation would take me 10 mins on Facebook messenger. This is because you talk about one topic finish it up properly and start the next one again. When you can talk about both same time just directly replying to the exact thing you getting back at. Please fix this because it’s getting boring chatting on Facebook messenger. If you can smile to a message thumb up and other things why can’t we reply? Thank you.

  • What if... Jun 16, 2020

    By HEYYYYY YAAAAA
    What if the facebook account gets hack and then you can’t also return or log in to the messenger which the account from facebook? Still not secured here. I hope that problem fix, waiting for the day it changes. My relatives just get hack a week ago, they thought it’s fine because they don’t addicted to facebook much. Then they realized that there are dozen of images they took before for memories, thousands of messages who encourage them come through the dark storm had been deleted because of the hackers with no conscience. Anyways, I’m concerned for these related app. I’m giving 4 stars because I loved this app before, now it updated and somehow it disappointed me. And with the hope of bringing a better security for both apps, I remove 1 star. Please fix

  • Explain please Feb 21, 2020

    By Sinnamyn
    I used to be able to get to the “other” folder but now that is gone. Please redo this and fix because many messages get filtered and now I can’t get those. Long time user. **EDIT** I found this setting finally. One last thing that would be a great addition is to give us the option to remain hidden. I don’t want everyone knowing I’m online. I have active turned off and I can’t see who is active but the ones who have active on can still see me. Also it would be nice to have an option that doesn’t show its read. Sometimes I can’t reply in a timely fashion and it leaves the person thinking I don’t care enough to respond. Yes I can mark it as unread but they can see it’s been read. My main suggestions. Thank you so much

    It would be nice if the notification drop-down for messages had the option to "Mark as Read" in addition to the "Like" and "Reply" options. Also, there was no notification or indication for a non-friend message-request on at least one occasion. I wish you guys would put a little more effort into and pay a little more attention TO this version of Messenger. Also, a dark-mode would be appreciated. 🤷‍♂️👍✌

  • Notification alarm Mar 30, 2020

    By Babystego
    Good app, let’s me keep in contact with others. Initially I deactivated Facebook when I was in school, but was allowed to use messenger still. After a while for some reason that stopped being the case and it deactivated messenger too. Well, that wasn’t an option because I have a family chat on there and otherwise I would have been out of the loop. Minor issue, done with school now so not as big of a problem, until I return for degree number two. Video quality could be a bit better too. Also, my dog absolutely HATES the message notification. He will run away when he hears it. I would prefer a list of audible options for the sake of my dogs ears, and me being upset when he leaves due to a message coming through. Minor detail, but it makes me want to get rid of the app all together.

  • Very good but.... Feb 24, 2020

    By woof user
    Messenger is a good app and I like to talk and connect with people on the app. And the sticker feature I really like since you can pick from a wide variety of different things. But the thing I recently hated about messenger is that I can no longer save gifs that I send to my friends or anyone, and I used to be able to do that and I would give a five star rating then, but now only four because I really need moving memes in my life and in my photo album, please consider letting us save gifs again. I know I may sound silly but I’m really upset that I can’t save them anymore and I found my favorite meme on gif recently and I can’t save it no more so I beg you, please let us save gifs again, but if theirs a new feature we’re you can save it but just have to click something different then please tell me :(

  • Some of the latest features missing Jan 1, 2021

    By Bgzorro
    Did the developers just give up on this app for iPad or something? I see that the latest update was two weeks ago, and usually Facebook likes to update all of their apps every two days 🤨 While the app *is* functional, it lacks some of the updated features that are all available on the iPhone app and mostly available via the direct website — such as FB avatars stickers and the like (i do appreciate the extra choices for emoji reacts, tho’; i just wish there were more heart options with that). My iPad is on the latest OS (iPadOS 14) and is an iPad Air 2...this latest update of Facebook Messenger is an incomplete version of the latest update for its version on iPhone 😐 would be nice to access ALL of the latest features on this app for iPad, since there’s more space on my iPad than on on my iPhone to support it. Hopefully, y’all will come back with a new update of ALL the latest features soon...

  • Not Horrible but Has Issues Feb 12, 2019

    By Tambri62
    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.

  • Great but definitely could be better! Dec 17, 2017

    By Obsessed w/ makeup
    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. :)

  • Pointless Jan 16, 2018

    By Silverramette
    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.

  • You missed it up again, way to go Aug 12, 2020

    By Not good for me
    I am becoming more and more disappointed with messenger, not only did you do away with the sticker blow ups, you also did away with the icons on the the picture edit. I used to be able to use the kiss lips to kiss my wife and my daughter goodnight as we a far apart and I like for them to know I am kissing goodnight, yes corny I know but it is something we found that helps us. But now in order for me to even do that once I have to use the text and use only one and it takes time to do that so all I can get is one because she is wanting to sleep. Also the lack in the chat itself has got slower and slower. Not to mention the video chat is really bad. And can not hold a connection. It seems that all you are doing is trying to cater to the adware and businesses and not to the actual people that really use it to stay in touch with there loved ones. Bring back the features please and stop with all the adware and sponsors. I am sure most are like me if they want to find a product then they go to the website itself. I don’t need to use you for that. Very very disappointed Facebook and Messenger August 12, 2020 Once again when you are going good you start to tinker with the app and screw things up, You have got it now to where it slow again and not respond. Just a month ago it was actually work fairly good but not now. Please address the lack time and loading issues. Thank you..

  • what happened??? May 28, 2020

    By NiaNicole1992
    I use messenger all the time, daily, multiple times a day, never really had problems with it that I’d noticed. when I went to sleep last night everything was fine... when I woke up this morning and clicked on my messages through the facebook app, it took me to the messenger log in screen. weird. I didnt log out. so it asked me if I wanted to ‘continue as _________(my name)” I clicked on it and it said “we could not log you in at this time” took me to a login screen to put in my email and password, did that, and got the same message.. “we could not log you in, please try again later.” well I need this app to work. the way it is supposed to. this is installed on my iPad no part of the app will work. I have tried uninstalling, turning my device off and on, with it installed and without it. nothing will work. I want to continue to talk to my friends during this quarantine time and you just cut off my way of communicating with people... please fix immediately

    To be honest, it would be customer-friendly(-ish) if you bother yourselves (dev team) and state the changes you made to the app. This isn't a game that we'll be able to discern the changes that easily (except for the icon). Also, there are more bugs than the previous vers. Sorry for stating my rating in a blunt way. For a total contradiction to my previous statement, I could see the effort made by the team and I appreciate it.

  • New update is total garbage Feb 29, 2020

    By cat1122334321
    They have changed a few things on this latest update and it feels like a step backwards in my opinion. First off... when my friends and I share location you can no longer see the their location without having to click on the map, then zooming in a lot farther than you ever should have to. And most of the time that location is not even correct. Secondly you can no longer see if the other person has seen your message without opening conversation (which was very useful). Also the new emojis for reacting to pictures are not good and they need to be changed back to the ones prior to the update. In the previous version you could click on stickers that were sent to you and the pack that it came from would show up and you could use them if you wanted to... now you can still click on them but all it does is show you the pack and you cannot use them. You have to go back to stickers and find that pack to use them. This new update is not at all user friendly and Facebook needs to go back to previous version.
