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.

Customer Reviews

STILL having the same lag issue for MONTHS

With every new terrible update you make that doesn't solve the issue, I will write an equally terrible review of your terrible job. I have been having a lag issue for MONTHS. Each time someone is sending me a message back and forth I have this awful lag that takes forever and messes up words and autocorrects them to random other things. I started to wonder if it was just my phone, however NO other app does this only messenger. Since it is my primary method of communication, I tend to not use text messaging with friends just messenger, they have a monopoly over my communication right now. But believe me, if I had the choice to choose another method every one of my friends would switch to I would because it seems to me Facebook does not care about its customers one bit. I know I am not the only one who has left a low star review of the app for the past few months. I find it ridiculous no one is looking at these reviews and actually wanting to fix it, but creating a useless update to make our reviews go away for a little while. Guess what Facebook, I'm not going to stop updating my review of your terrible product until you actually do something useful with fixing the bugs!

Garbage app

**Please Note: Facebook is coming out with regular version 'updates' that don't have genuine fixes or improvements, but they do hide their bad ratings temporarily.**

This app has nagged me every day to rate the app, you want it so badly Facebook? Here it is: Sometimes the app will tell me I have a message, sometimes it will actually show me my new messages. More often it doesn't and I have to go into the website to get messages to actually load. The app performs at the same low level over various internet connections I've tried in different places. Where is the working Facebook calling feature that is being pushed as available, but doesn't actually work? If two people are online why won't it ever connect? This app needs lots of improvement of it's existing function before adding in new features. Make the app not perform so poorly. More updates and now we have 'stickers', which actually work, surprisingly. The notification and updating are still erratic at best. Message 'filtering' that was supposed to be fixed, was only fixed for a short time. Now you have to go to the website for all your messages again.

New updates keep coming out yet there are no noticeable or genuine improvements to the app, which never needed to be separated from the main Facebook app.

Serious fixes need to be made!!

I am not happy with messagers new update it was fine as it was before but now it's just irritating every single time I go to messager it does the whole beginning process when you first install the app itself. Saying welcome to messager is this your number we can use and people with blue bubbles are people you can message and all that. I already know that I've had messager for awhile. But what really annoys me is that it continues to do that each time I go back to the app. I shouldn't have to constantly rest everything and log in every single time I want to go back and use messager. You guys seriously should of tested this update before hand cause it's buggy and it needs to seriously be fixed. If I could go back and uninstall this update I would cause preferred how it was originally before this buggy update. I would of loved to give it 5/5 starts but after this update it deserves 2 stars or maybe I should give it 1 star instead. Please fix this issue. I'm being kindhearted so I'm giving it 2 stars at the most.
