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.

Customer Reviews


Any review with five stars saying this app is perfect is either a troll or placed by people who have been paid to make the review.

There is no point to this app existing. One of the 'benefits' listed is that you can check your messages without opening the Facebook app. This means Facebook has created an app designed to keep people of Facebook.

I for one do not believe the hype about the privacy violations, but this app does take up space that could otherwise be used for songs, movies, photos, good apps, etc.

People need to delete this app and demand it be put back in to the Facebook app. Do not download this app. Text your friends instead.

EDIT: It should be noted that it is soon going to be impossible to use FB Messages without this app. You can't even use Safari to use FB properly.

It's such a bad app they have to force people to use it; it's no different than Obamacare: use it or go to jail. Truly and utterly horrible.


Downloaded it once. It's completely pointless, it's waste of space on my phone. It was perfectly fine in the Facebook app. Instead of consolidating and being convenient for your users your breaking into separate places and trying to replace texting. Stop trying to force us to download this app. You're not going to replace my text messaging/iMessage, give up. You block us from being able to access messages from mobile view but we can still request the desktop site and message from there. I will never redownload.


Just needs chat heads to make it a bit more convenient to text multiple people at the same time without having to switch between different apps. Other than that it's perfect. Keep up the good work guys. I hope you read this. ;)
