Customer Reviews


It's absolutely annoying that you are forced to download this app to view messenger & chat between friends. Especially switching between apps is annoying & time consuming as before you could just view the message while scrolling through the newsfeed & reply & carry on now you have to keep switching it's actually frustrating having to wait for apps to load when before all you needed was one.
When receiving a few photos the app times out, then malfunctions. Completely unsatisfied.


Performance is impressive, voice calling works well, but there is no way to change users meaning I'm constantly re-downloading the app (3-4 times daily) when my daughter uses my phone to chat to her friends.

Also, I can no longer download messenger for iOS 6, even though the App Store used to serve up an older version, so now my daughter can't use her 3GS with messenger even though we know it works perfectly, worsening the no-logout issue.

One star for having made stupid decisions that ruin this product.


App is very good, initiative and intuitive! Love how it's separate from facebook itself! Best feature yet! Not sure about the replacement of "seen" but can always tap to see if necessary keep the good updates coming
