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.

Customer Reviews

Change the home layout back please

I've really loved using the messenger app to make plans and stay in touch with my friends.

The one thing I would ask be changed is to please get rid of the "active" list at the top of the screen - it isn't intuitive because those aren't the people I'm looking to talk to regularly! It makes much more sense to have the "recent" section at the top or even "favorites" - just NOT the "active" section. Please change it or at least give people the option to arrange their home screen how they wish.

Please release in future update.

I know you guys have worked hard on making the new emojis...But it would be really nice if you could give an option to turn the new emojis off. So many times I'm about to text an
Emoji but the new one doesn't work for the conversation anymore. Like when some one messed up you would be like 👌 but with the new ones I'm like nope. So please allow people to use both of the sets or choose which one they want as default in settings. Example: Settings, Options, More Options, Emojis, Messenger or Keyboard, Keyboards. Please add feature. 😬


Hi! I love this app so much, it is better then using regular Facebook messaging I would give this app 5 stars, but I'm not going to because I have a glitch. So I have a group chat with all my best friends (4 people not including me) and whenever we type the read icon in the corner is never anybody's face, it happens to all of us it makes it seem like none of us reads the message! It frustrates me so much! If you could fix it then I would give this app 5 stars... THANKS!
