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 23.1
Fixed issues to make the app more reliable.
Where's the "Other" folder
This is now the only place to read messages; however I cannot read anything sent to my "other" folder on my phone. As a moderator of a group, I need to know when members send me messages about unacceptable behaviour without having to wait until I am at a PC. Also concerned about another reviewer who mentioned an exposè by a Danish programme as to the selling of information of users of this app to databrokers. Will be checking that out; and then probably deleting Messenger, and FB and moving everyone in the group over to another social media site.
I thing messenger is amazing, I have a iPhone and messenger is just so quick and amazing!!✌️ I like how you can download it, so then you can just click the app to message someone instead of clicking on Facebook😂 this spuds pathetic, but, it is actually quicker to just click the app😋
Much easier messaging
I can't see why there are so many negative reviews of this app. Just installed it and it works fine. Seems to me that this is far easier than having to mess around with messages on the main FB site.
