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.

Ok app, but could use an update

Facebook, i honestly despise all your updates. They are too frequent, and take up too much of my phone memory. It used to be easy to use FB messenger, now there are too many features which I don't use. If you want to create an all-in-one app, come up with a new concept. But stop turning simple messenger into a whole new world of social media. I don't need to access camera or special filters in messenger. It's annoying!

Original post from 3 years ago: I dont have 2000 'friends' on facebook, so i'm not constantly showered by some odd and annoying messages. When i do want to text with friends, i find this messager quite convenient. I never log off, as with my close friends living all around the world and time zones i need to be available whenever, if possible. However, i wish i could change the notification sound from 'ding' to something less startling.
I wish facebook app kept its original look and messager that had those pop up bubbles, instead of having two separate facebook apps. It takes forever switching back and forth.


I've come to use this a lot. I liked the version where you could choose from four emojis that popped up beside the message box. Now it defaults to those hideous gray schmoo-like creatures. I'd like a customizable choice on this. Also the ability to change to the current Facebook profile picture.

And fix the automatic predictor. I don't like it when I type "love" and it comes out "like bed." It would also be nice to be able to edit a message already sent.

Also, how about a "Save" message being written? Sometimes I have to look something up and leave; when I come back my message is gone. H

I love the phone service!

I wish the messages were searchable. Also, I understand that they can be printed out, but I don't know how.

But overall, I like Messenger.

Not a fan if recent updates

I do not like the "Add to my day" option. I have sent some photos privately and almost "added it to my day". We should be able to remove that option. Also do not like the "call option" on the top right as I have accidentally touched it several times and called people. These options should be able to be turned off if you aren't interested in using them.
I would like the option of changing the notification tone. The default tone to messenger isn't loud enough.
