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 33.0
Thanks for using Messenger! We update the app around every two weeks so it continues to work great for you. We're also working on fun new features, and we're excited for you to try them out soon.
While it may work for some users to have the apps separated it has been annoying and frustrating for me as someone who uses Messenger as an integrated chat service in Facebook.
Which is to say nothing for Facebook's privacy policies and user data track record.
I also do not know what happens when Facebook 'sends out an invitation to use Messenger' on my behalf when I write to someone, but I despise being associated with a service endorsement against my will.
If you want to message in Facebook, just get this and hide it in a folder with Newsstand and Stocks. Then use the messages in the Facebook app. They want everyone's phone number awfully bad! ??
I would rate this app more. But it's becoming an issue. Being forced to download it to be able to talk to family? Logic right? Also it should include a log out feature. That would work beautifully.
