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.

The messaging interface is amazing
Just today they updated the format in the messaging section where when you type a message it is just like IMessage on iPhone which I find real cool and I love it. Makes it easier for me to reply and type a message. Selecting stickers got way easier and it got easier to send a payment or location or voice message. I love it! Thank you
I give it a 4 star review. I've had this app for a while and have seen many updates. I'm still hoping to have some form of chat heads in a future update. When there is one of those, I'll give it a five star. Other than that, app works well, doesn't take up too much battery to run it. And there have been no real issues. Message notifications are always on time and I never miss a message as of yet.
A couple of updates back this app starting freezing or locking up on iPhone7. And because it's Facebook they don't seem to ever reply to any customer service inquiries about issues with any of their apps, including this one. For me this is a larger issue because I've been delayed in responding to customers because of it being locked up. Re-downloading, cache clearing and restarting never resolve this issue. It's a shame that yet another large company seems too big to actually help their users.
