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 30.0

Any worth nullified by annoying pop up

Update: 2-3 updates later and still has the nagging dialog insisting that I give the app notification privileges. The red dot on the icon is fine for everyone else. Why are you so special? Uninstalled yet again.

This may be the greatest messaging app ever written. Unfortunately, you'll never know because if you don't give the app full notifications privileges, you'll be met with a pop up nagging you to give it full permissions every time you bring up FB messenger. Not every time you open the app, but even when you bring it up from the background. Whoever decided that was a good or helpful dialog should be driven from the building via stoning.


Just wondering when this app is gonna get an update that fixes the problem where you turn your chat off but on friends accounts it says so and so was online 1min ago when you bring the app up on your phone cause it's kinda annoying when you don't want certain people knowing when your online or just was online even though you have chat turned off and your logged out of Facebook app. sincerely all-day-facebooker.

Love it!

I love this app! Living overseas FB messenger makes my life much easier! Almost everyone has FB and it has become one of my main modes of communication. Even the phone calls can be pretty decent! And much better than having multiple free texting/calling apps as each country seems to have a different favorite, yet they all have FB.
