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.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Messenger uses location data to make features work, help people connect and more.

Customer Reviews

Less Than Zero Stars

look closely and notice that all the bad reviews list many specific reasons why this app is awful: it will not accept no for answer on push notifications or syncing contacts, it considers these requests new messages and will text you about it. it takes up an enormous amount of space, it is unwieldy and requires four steps to do things that normally take one.

but all the good reviews just state they love it and accuse those who don't of falling into group think. this is because all the good reviews are fake. no one, not even this application's mother, would take the time to praise this awful joke. even in it's description they can't name a single actual reason this would be an improvement. please don't download.

the messenger app is an awful monster that obsessively tries to control and trick its users into submission. there is no free will or choice. you will submit or leave. it will lie. manipulate and harass it's users like a rabid bully. it collects and steals data while providing no actual function. it is a never ending infomercial of pain and suffering. it is useless and evil. it serves no purpose. you took people's messages and hid them behind a wall of theft and deceit and you did it poorly. quit fb so you can avoid this predator disguised as an application.


Why do these new updates to EVERY social media app have to deal with looking and acting like instagram? I was using version 82.0 (or up...that's just the last version it said on there so yeah.) but I don't see anything wrong with messenger being messenger. The least they could do is let me arrange and lock things in place so I don't go completely mad!! I have some sort of OCD with change (if that's even a thing..if it's not, oh well.) Where i have to have it the way it was before i updated it..well..with the recent messages being on top, the active now bar being underneath that, and the older messages underneath the active now bar. That is the LEAST they could do...the MOST they could do is take away the snap chat filters..I do not need any little kids on my phone and taking ridiculous selfies as a dog or something...I honestly do not like snap chat..I'm sorry....hate on me all you want, but I'm me you're you. So..I do me, and you do you, and we won't do each

Excessive harassment

It never occurred to the programers that anyone would not turn on notifications in the iOS for the app. This it constantly harasses you to turn it on and leaves a permanent alert if it cannot access your personal contacts.

It is clear that this is not about contacting facebook folks but stealing your contact information and forcing their stream of Facebook communication down your throat. Nobody needs this program to chat with their friends. Thats why we have phones and a contact list full of names. Facebook wants to get you to move all your communications to them so they can use everything you say and do to monetize their ads.
