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.

Back to the top
UPDATE: You have finally changed the behavior of opening the camera when scrolling the chats. It was so annoying I am so happy, I give you ALL the stars.
Old 1 star review I had for several months:
Please remove the camera app opening when I scroll down conversations. It really makes the app awful to use.
I don't care about stories, I just hate to scroll and open the camera. I used to love this app, now I'm hating having to use it.
this app was always really good to me. I am currently have a problem with the nickname feature of messenger. I have a nickname set for one of my friends, but the notifications I get when I am not in the app aren't showing the nickname anymore. The notifications I get say their real name when previously they use to show the nickname. I really want this to be fixed because without it it kind of defeats the purpose of the nicknames.
Annoying and pointless
Now apparently Facebook thinks it's so important that it needs me to forcibly download an app to message people on my account. Text messaging exist for a reason and that reason is so I don't need messenger!! Also, this app crashes so much it should be a death scene in another final destination movie! If there weren't annoying people who only want to use messenger, I wouldn't have this app period. Pointless.
