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.

Customer Reviews

Great app

I use this app a lot, but there's only one problem, the newest update, which was around October 20th, which adds an emoji feature, kicks me out almost instantly be hen I click on the new feature! I just want to text friends and family and see what this new feature is, but it kicks me out every time I click the little button with the four emojis on it. I love this app, and I hope this problem is fixed soon.

One thing preventing a 5 star!

I love the app and it works great. It's smooth and never crashes and looks great. The only thing that is preventing me from giving it 5 stars is the fact that I can't change the sound of the notifications coming, instead only the option to turn the sound off all together. If you update it and allow us to change what sound is associated with an incoming g message then I will re-rate my review at a 5 star. Until then it's stuck at 4!


Freezes up almost every time I open the app.

The app shows that I have (1) new message notification, when in actuality it's a notification trying to force me to add my contacts.

I dislike the fact that we can no longer see the time when a person has read our message. There was no reason to drop that feature. It came in extremely handy.

I dislike that I can no longer see if a person sent their message from "mobile" or the web. Again, more features removed by Facebook for no reason.

This entire app is senseless and unnecessary. Messages should be sent and read through the main Facebook app. I extremely dislike being forced to download this additional app just to use the messenger feature.

Describe the Facebook Messenger updates in the App Store like everyone else. Users want to know WHAT is being updated.

Listen to your users for a change, Facebook. Fix these issues, so I can give the Facebook Messenger app a better rating.
