Instantly reach the people in your life—for free. Messenger is just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).

Not just for Facebook friends: Message people in your phone book and just enter a phone number to add a new contact.

Group chats: Create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place.

Photos and videos: Shoot videos and snap selfies or other photos right from the app and send them with one tap.

Free calls: Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries. (Calls are free over Wi-Fi. Otherwise, standard data charges apply.)

Even more ways to message:
Bring your conversations to life with stickers.
Preview your camera roll photos and videos without leaving the conversation--then choose the perfect ones to send.
Record voice messages when you have more to say.

Extra features:
Know when people have seen your messages.
Forward messages or photos to people who weren't in the conversation.
Search for people and groups to quickly get back to them.
Turn on location to let people know when you're nearby.
See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook.
Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break.
Stay logged in so you never miss a message.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Messenger uses location data to make features work, help people connect and more.

Customer Reviews

Secret Messenger Needs To Be More Secret

This review is about the "secret message" feature of the app.

1. If you're using "secret" messages, you probably have a reason to keep your conversation private. The notification message that comes on the screen "someone sent you a message" looks very suspicious to anyone who happens to see the notification. I don't just want my conversation to be encrypted, I also want it to be private and not arouse suspicion.

2. It would be helpful if you could control notifications for "secret messages" independently from the notifications for regular messages. The app currently lets you "mute" notifications for secret messages, but it would be great if you could turn the notifications off entirely without having to turn off ALL messenger notifications. Again, this goes to the desire for privacy.

Pure Garbage an Waste of space

Facebook has become the Bloatware winner in 2017. Why in the hell does this app need to be dam near 200 megs ? I use a clone app to do the same thing an it's 31 megs an does the same thing as this garbage. Also why the hell does the cache on this bloatware app never clear out? Before I uninstalled this garbage the cache was up to 3.7 gigs an no way to clear it without uninstalling the app. Lazy programmers it seems to me. Let's just update this garbage every two weeks an hide what's changed. Lazy, Lazy, Lazy... Goodbye to your bloatware app. Use a clone app smaller an doesn't need all your contacts an such... -100 stars!!!

Update: I filed a complaint with Apple for FB violation of terms. All apps are suppose to have info when updated not a BS msg like they keep posting. Also screenshots are fake an misleading another violation of apples terms for App makers..

Love Facebook but

Iv gotten used to the fact we are forced to have Facebook and messenger separate. But lately there's been some bugs. Failed calls or the call ends and it says it's still going or the chats won't load and you have to constantly restart the app. There's also the fact I have the latest update but don't have shared days or the little photo button on the screen where it shows all the chats but if someone puts their account on my app real quick to login they have all the features just my account seemingly does not and it has been like that for a month or so now and it's highly annoying when my friends want me to see their days but I can't so I miss out.
