Facebook Messenger

By Facebook, Inc.

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.

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.

I'm so confused .. Please explain to me the little circles that we see that say SENT .. DELIVERED .. SEEN !! I know that delivered means it got delivered to their inbox but they just haven't seen it yet or read it yet .. Seen means they read the message .. But what does SENT mean ??? I sent a message to a friend days ago and it still shows as SENT!! Not delivered .. Not seen or read .. But SENT !! Please explain what this means !!! No one seems to know .. They say it's because he don't have messenger but that's not true because it shows as he has messenger!! I don't get why we need a seperate app for messages!! It takes up time and space on out phone! Why couldn't the messages stay the way there were in the Facebook like normal ! And I don't like how just anyone can call me from my Facebook because of this and I can't find a way to turn off the call thing! That gives stalkers or creeps ways to call is on our phones!!


To log out, go to the app's settings>Privacy and Terms>tap the white arrow in top left on the blue>tap the "3 line icon in top left>scroll down the menu to "log out" and log out. It looks like the Facebook menu, which it is. But it will log you out of Messenger. It will not affect your Facebook app. Why so many worried about permissions? I have given 64 apps permission to access my photos. 14 to access my microphone. Etc etc. I'm not worried. This is a great app. I like the notification "ding" when someone messages me. What's to not like? You can always hide this app in a folder with Newsstand, then use it in the Facebook app.☮

There's no way to log out.

I hate how facebook has forced us to download a separate app just to message people. Like come on ugh but the thing that annoys me even more is there's no way to log out of messenger.

My sister borrowed my phone and she logged into her facebook but when she went to messenger it was still logged into me. So we had to delete the app and redownload so she could log in how annoying is that. And when I want to log back in I have to delete the app and redownload. Ugh why are you so inefficient facebook God.
