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.
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.
What's New in Version 99.0
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!
Serious privacy concerns, was much better when integrated with FB app
Requires Facebook have access to all of your contacts. It's invasive. It's cumbersome having to use two apps instead of what used to be one app. I resent Facebook forcing messenger on us.
ALSO If you are temporarily or permanently banned by Facebook, even if it was in error, you lose the ability to communicate with messenger. Keep that in mind if you want to keep Facebook from controlling if and when you communicate.
Games won't work
I want to play games with my friends, but everyone of them crashes except for Galaga. I mean, I love Galaga, but I want to play something else with them. Other than that, it's a pretty good messenger.
Functionality Removed, Awesome!
I truly don't appreciate having functionality removed from app and being forced to download another as a supplement. It was fine for years, leave it alone. A REAL change log would be nice...
(See 1Password for a great example).
Enjoy your one star!
