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.

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.

Good but needs a proper update

I like this app as it helps to keep in contact with friends and family, it's quick, easy to use and can easily be switched between this and Facebook! Although, with this recent update it has started to have my previous message still in the typing box, which is very annoying as it has to be deleted every time before being able to write a new message! This has happened previously a few times! I think a new update to completely stop this happening would be a very good idea, never mind just updates to make it run faster, it needs this fixing! Proper update please!

This is great !!!

I know the app can be better and there are a few things that could be done. Firstly I want to say that the app is great and the creators care about us because they always add updates which is a good thing to see. I would like the app to offer the chance to make video calls that would be fantastic but overall great app with little if not any glitches. Well Done founders you nailed it it does exactly what is says on the tin

Good but one major bug

Would be 5* if you didn't have to delete your sent message from your text box every time you go into a different chat or open the app again. Really annoying especially if you write a long message. I don't understand how you can release an update that does nothing but add more problems, I mean, come on you are worth billions. May be harsh but from a company the size of Facebook I expect a messaging app that works. Otherwise a 5* app but the problem is a major one :/
