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 56.0
We update the app regularly so we can make it better for you. Get the latest version for all of the available features and improvements. Thanks for using Messenger!
**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.
New updates keep coming out yet there are no noticeable improvements to the app, which never needed to be separated from the main Facebook app.
When I try to reply to a message from my lock screen with a passcode, the keyboard will freeze on my lock screen & the message will disappear. I can type on the keyboard but it is frozen on my lock screen and I can't use my finger print to unlock my phone. This is a major glitch that needs to be patched. Another glitch/bug I have found, is when I use my quick reply from a app and send a message to someone, it will say that they sent me that message when I am the one that sent the message. So pretty much the bugs are coming from the new quick reply feature.
Fix this please
I installed this app back on my phone but I don't won't my phone number listed even to friends list cos most are not really known friends I would like the option to choose none in adding phone#
I agree with everyone that this app should be incorporated with FB app it's a pain to leave FB app to text with someone and it takes more room on phone
After high school reunion I will delete if this is not back into FB it's to much trouble going back and forth
Also it would be great if you could see or be notified when someone unfriend 's you like tweeter give us the option to do the same
