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.

It won't update profile pictures/it crashes/won't send messages

I mean, this isn't THAT big of a deal honestly, but yeah, it hasn't updated my friends profile pictures since about june-ish. Idk why, but that issue is tolerable.

But the app also crashes a lot, & i have a boyfriend in the military, so we heavily rely on social media, like skype, messenger, texting...etc. & a lot of the times the messages won't send & the app will crash. Or they'll disappear & i honestly didn't delete them

Ummm, where did the typing bubble go?

In the current conversation screen the typing bubble no longer pops up when the person I'm talking to is typing up a response. It's quite pointless to only let it show in the list of other conversations I have. After they've seen my response it looks like to me that they read it and ignored it even though they probably did not and that's the kind of stuff that REALLY irritates me personally. I'd at least like to know that they are in fact responding back to me after it shows they've seen it.
Please add that back!

Notification sounds broken...again

After last week's update, notification sounds were broken and were sounding like the default iPhone sounds. Then a couple days after that the usual Messenger sounds came back which was great but now after tonight's update the back to the default iPhone sounds. I love this app but please either fix the problem or give us the ability to choose our own sounds.

Please fix.
