Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
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.
What's New in Version 57.0
We update the app regularly so we can make it better for you. Get the latest version for all of the available features and improvements. Thanks for using Messenger!
App does NOT contain viruses
Whoever is blabbing about viruses doesn't understand how they got a "virus". For all they know they have "Hey Siri" enabled and it is picking up conversation due to them saying "seriously" because it sounds like "Hey Siri". My guess is that they also would potentially received a malicious payload from a "Friend". Do you have groups formed? Do you actually know these people? The fact that more than one iPhone has been affected means that you are either carrying the malware (doubtful) forward OR there is simple corruption. Don't restore from a backup and test it out. Just install the app and run it. I bet my life you don't have the same experience OR you are just a troll. The app screening process on the App Store is very thorough. I have been an enterprise developer for years. I have serious issues with a flippant complaint or claim such as "Facebook Messenger has viruses and ruined two phones!"
APP HAS VIRUS THAT EFFECTS ENTIRE PHONE!!!
So two phones now have been messed up after downloading Facebook messenger, I will have to go back to the Apple Store again to use AppleCare to replace my phone. It first starts with just messenger, I'll click on someone's name and it auto types random messages to at least ten people on my friends list, then I can't close the app, let alone write to the people who got the randomly chosen words typed in and sent to them. Then after a few days it does the same thing in my text messages, sending randomly chosen words such as mommy, forget, shopping, (my sons name). And then it freezes my phone and I cannot restart it, I have to wait until it dies to restart. It doesn't do this every time I send messages, it's completely at random and it is completely infuriating when it sends odd and confusing nonsense to my employer, or my in laws, etc... Don't waste your time with this app, it will ruin your iPhone.
Love Me a Message-February 10, 2016
I love sending and receiving message's from family & friends. I love the fact that I can send message's to a number of people at the same time! It also help's to have a closer relationship with my Facebook friends! I have many Facebook friends from different countries and Messenger has made it possible to talk one on one with my Facebook friends! Thank you for that. I'm getting to learn about different cultures, I don't think I would have learned so much if I didn't have this service. So, Thank you again for your service!
