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.

Saved Pictures and Sent Messages....

I like using this app as a way to message people compared to other and it usually work smoothly most of the time. However, there is the ongoing problem on how most often my messages are being sent yet not delivered despite having a pretty good connection on the other side. Moreover when viewing saved photos the app freezes and shuts down which is kinda a bummer as I like viewing the photos I've sent to others from time to time. Hopefully something could be done about this soon.

iPhone 6S

Honestly, I don't get why people have a problem with switching to the app. I don't mind it. It's fast, and reliable.

I only have one complaint... With the new iPhone 6S; When on a call in messenger, if loud speaker is activated, the other person's voice sounds robotic.

I'm guessing it's a problem with the app, as a friend with the same phone is having the same problem.

Scrolling is broken

Whenever I want to scroll up to read the chat and make the keyboard disappear, it doesn't move and it keeps glitching, and it's so annoying. I thought in the update it would change it but it hasn't done anything. Please sort this out ASAP. The amount of problems in what could be a simple app is ridiculous.

The whole app in general is getting ridiculous, and the fact that you now HAVE to have a separate app for facebook now is even more of an inconvenience as I have multiple accounts; for work and personal.
