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.

What's New in Version 80.0

Customer Reviews

Complete waste of an app...

If I could give 0 stars I would. My only reason for writing a review is to give a warning to others.
I've never been happy with this app. The only reason I keep it is because it's my only communication with some very important people.
With the most recent update, I've had more problems then I have ever had. I would not have noticed had I not been in a large group chat, as I avoid using messenger. All of my chats are frozen, showing no messages since before the update. Sometimes I get notifications but when I go into the app to reply or see the whole message, it's as if it was never sent in the first place. Very rarely do messages actually come through. When they do, it is a completely random message out of many, and if I reply to the message, all messages received after the update disappear.
The few times I use messenger, it is with large groups. And it is important that I get these messages. Why would I want an app that doesn't do it's purpose? It's completely pointless. I will find a different way to communicate with my large groups.


*facebook keeps putting out fake updates to temporarily hide bad ratings, and I will check back, 'update' and refresh my 1 star as often as I have to*

I do NOT want notifications, especially since I already get them for the Facebook app!! I do NOT want people to be able to track my usage or see if I've read or received their messages!! I keep updating and deleting this stupid app in the hopes that you will make it less horrible, but it just keeps getting worse! I meant to say NO notifications the first time you asked. Do not ask me 4 more times in a row, and then force a red badge on the notifications icon!! This app would be SO handy if you guys weren't so aggressively trying to force me to use it! Deleted. Again. You should also probably stop trying to trick me into downloading the app again by sending bogus message notifications to the main Facebook app- it just reminds me to refresh my 1 star rating for the newest update.

Horrible update

5 more updates in a week and STILL stuck with the messed up layout that puts conversations at the very bottom of the main screen.

ANOTHER update (11 in the past 5 days) and the layout is STILL all cluttered with the stupid new layout and you can only have 3 conversations within the app, if you have more you have to find them on your computer!

Conversations are now all scrambled with no logical order. Very hard to find conversations now without the "recent" tab. Also the change log hasn't been updated since version 1.0. Why do you not show your sloppy layout in the app photos? The photos still show the neatly arranged "recents" tab which is replaced by the "home tab" that lists the same person 3 times
