Great but few cinks I love the app and it's a great way to stay in contact with friends and family but it's pretty dumb that I have to download another app... Why can't you put it on facebook? Why did you make another app that is as space hungry as facebook is? At times it doesn't want to send simple stuff like GIFF's and short video's. Be great if y'all fixed that kinda stuff... Just sayin Full Review

Update: its now over 6 months since fb msnger fails for voice and video calls if a bluetooth audio device (i. E. smartwatch) is connected. If i call from my phone via messenger audio or video it instantly fails. Turn off bluetooth and all works. Fb msngr needs to ignore (or use) connected devices. Please fix! Full Review

Would like to be able to easily see what time a message was sent/received/read from both/all people in the chat. Also says the other person is typing when they really aren't, even if they aren't active. Won't deliver my messages quickly, even when we're both on Wi-Fi. Seems to do that in the early morning after hours of inactivity. Even after hours of it sending, it won't deliver. Won't show last time someone was active if it's over 2 hours, or whenever it wants.

Honestly sick of the constant updates and pointless additions. What is the point of the new "friend is active" notification while IM ALREADY ON MESSENGER? It looks messy and tacked on. If I want to see who is online I will look at the Active Now section. I only have this app because I HAVE to. Full Review

The app asks for too many permissions. I can turn them off manually in settings on my Samsung Galaxy S8. That's too much trouble though. What guarantee do I have that Messenger won't turn permissions back on? So, I use Chrome Browser & go to my FB profile page. Request the desktop site through Chrome settings. Then I'm able to view my messages. Full Review

Annoying sounds I hate the sound I get anytime someone sends me a message. Most times i have to put my phone on silent before chatting with friend to avoid the annoying sound and notification. I wish there will be a way to turn off the sound of the messenger completely for all chat. Full Review

Ever since the update, all that's happened is that it says people are active when they're really not and now the app crashes every time I tried to call. It's pissing me off because I can't even call my bf who's two hours away anymore! Plus, you have way too many app permissions. Full Review

No matter what I do to my settings, it will always show me as active anytime I use my phone. I want to have the option to reply to messages on my own time, but instead I get messages from people who can see me online and expect an immediate answer. Why are they seeing me online when I've switched the active button off? Full Review

Ok I use the app no problem. Minus the cluttered things but I'm used to it. Besides that though I wanted to talk to you about me getting sent random videos in zip files. Is this a problem, a virus or just a small bug? I have screenshots if you need them Full Review

this app has been acting very whacky all of a sudden. yesterday while responding to a message the app closes out of nowhere. today it sends me a message to log back in because my "session has expired". this has never happened before and when i log in it stays like that and never logs out on its own. please fix this x Full Review

Okay, for some reason, I am not getting any push notifications even though they are on according to what the app tells me and my phone. Please fix this. This is annoying because I would have to open the app to manually check for messages. No chat heads and no sound. Full Review

Links don't open externally. I can't even see an option to open links externally. In app browser should be flat out banned by Google app design guidelines. It's such a horrible dirty concept. Let me use my browser of choice, not your horrible version of one. Full Review

I don't like it at all because it won't allow other people to see "my day". I mean it's nice and all but it needs SERIOUS improvements and fixes!! I really do not recommend this app at all. Do snapchat or tango, tango is the same thing with a super duper amazing twist. I'm sorry it was just a horrible experience. Full Review

Good way to stay in touch with people. Also face time with others to be able to see someone you miss and just want to see there face. Last but not least a good way to meet new people and make a connection with the one person you been looking for your whole life and possibly fall in love Full Review

For whatever reason, clicking the "see details" button, when inquiring about a product from Facebook, does nothing. Literally... button will flash, but won't take me to the seller's post. I have to go back into Facebook, go to my saved list list, and hunt for the product I messaged about.....fix this and MAYBE receive 5 stars... Full Review

I use this app more than actually calling or texting people, there are a few kinks though. First, why isn't there an option to show yourself not active? I don't always necessarily want people to know if I'm on, it just forces me to talk to people I'm trying to avoid. Second, what is the deal with automatically answering and hanging up calls when I'm connected to my Bluetooth? Third, my gif's malfunction all the time. It will tell me that someone sent one, then all I see is the share triangle, not the gif at all. After I close the app and go back it pops up, but this is just annoying Full Review

As of current, attempting to use Bluetooth whilst in a call through the app will disable the wireless connection if you have one set up in your area. And if you disable bluetooth, the Wi-Fi will work again.. this is not good for those that lime to set down their phones in their house and speak via speaker or headset. Please fix this ASAP.

The like button is very near to chat box (the box where you input text). Almost too near the emoji / sticker button. So many times a like gets sent accidentally while trying to access emoji. Secondly, a sticker gets sent directly as soon as you touch it. It should first arrive in chat box then should go after hitting the send key. If these two features are taken care of then definitely 4 stars. Full Review

After the recent update, it's very difficult to navigate through the app. I'm having a difficult time locating certain categories. Also, I don't like ads appearing on the homepage. Contacting relatives, and friends has become a problem. When I'm communicating with someone, the call will disconnect. This app has been going downhill for quite some time. I hope the developers repair issues, but I won't hold my breath. Full Review

I have this app for s long time and I loved it but lately I have been able to get messages from vegetarian people but my messages don't go through unless someone is texting me exactly at the same time!! Someone has to fix this!! Its horrible. My friends that lice close, the app works well, but not to people in other countries! That is the whole point to Facebook to have a meeting place around the world. Please someone fix this!! Im about to just delete the app all together. I even uninstalled the app and reinstalled the app and it was still messed up. Im getting really pissed!! This whole thing started yesterday!! Full Review

Note 3 and Note 8 Totally disappointed after the last update! So not good! Advertising are everywhere this days and are so annoying, so why we have see them in messenger too? Facebook and messenger are one! So I am ok to see them at Facebook, but why have to see them so much, when you see it everywhere! P. P. Otherwise the app itself is good! It's connect people together! But is better to have paid version both for FB and messenger, instead to see advertisements everywhere... :) I always rate 5 stars, but now I am little disappointed and will keep rating 1 star. Advertisement are annoying! Full Review

I hate this. No choice with this phone either. You can't see who,message is from, only the initial which ate in the same pink color. You can't have 5 conversations going, only 3. Why can't messenger just keep things simple lime they were and give options to,others rather than forcing us to choose to change app just to see a message? Full Review

Messenger app keeps misbehaving, idk why. And I was using the older version but it started to misbehave, i.e, it wasn't opening...when I tapped on it. It just showed a blank white screen. So i updated it a few days ago now it's doing the same thing again. I have to go to settings>app settings and wipe out it's data and login again to run the app. And yeah, this is the only app which is misbehaving and none of the other apps have misbehaved so far.

For over 2 years and two different phones, my app doesn't play videos received in messages. I had a Samsung Galaxy S7 and now have a Note 8 and the problem persists. They just won't load. I tried deleting cache, reinstalling the app, playing both on wifi and 3/4g... Full Review

After latest update my own profile is in the list of online contacts, why is this a thing, I am not going to message myself, and I know I am online as I am in the app. This definitely drains my phone battery very quickly, and causes my phone to freeze up constantly. And a lot of the added features like my day etc I do not use so would like the option to disable them. Also the updates are very large and frequent and the whole app is very large as well.

The app isn't giving me my messages. It doesn't even notify me. I thought my mom was ignoring me yesterday and she wasn't. Your app is supposed to notify people in the notification spot. Come on now. Doesn't even load a message until I tap on the Convo... I shouldn't have to do that. Plus chat heads aren't working properly. Full Review

when I have chat heads up on my screen and it's on the home screen, it won't let me see the little circles of whether or not my message was sent or read or not. I don't know if that's the new update or if my phone is messing up, but I don't like it like that. I'd rather it go back to normal and then I'll give this the five stars I think it deserves.

Search messages in chat would be great, or search by date, teleport to certain date to view certain messeges or conversation send that day.Now it's at good stage. Seems like it's not laggy. I don't encounter many bugs (but there are some in the text field in chatwindow). They stopped their propaganda about my day so that's awesome. No more add to your day in chat. Finally. Pretty good overall. Full Review

Since the new Update I get no notifications when someone messages me back. I have to go into the app and hit refresh in order to see that someone sent me a message back this is both annoying and Doesn't work well if you're trying to have a real time conversation. Please go back to how it used to be I am Extremely Frustrated Full Review

It keeps on logging me out whenever I switch from one account to another. Once I've entered in the account I'll use, a pop-up will say session expired. It's really inconvenient especially when facebook messenger is my way of communicating with my family who are abroad and far. Edit: Updated it today and it's just a white screen. Nothing else is showing and it's really annoying. Full Review

I cannot, for the life of me, get messenger to work in the background. I get no notification of messages (no bubble, no sound, no led, no vibrate) but then when I remember to open the app, it connects to the internet and all of a sudden I have multiple unread messages. I thought it was my fault so I gave this app every permission possible, it's able to draw over all other apps, and it's the only priority I have set in notification options. What do I do now? I submitted a ticket but Facebook hasn't answered yet. I have a Galaxy S8 running the latest update. I have to add that I was a beta tester for Messenger for a long time and I left the beta program because I thought my issue was the result of an unstable beta phase. I was wrong. Full Review

Thank you so much for the update! Now my phone says it's not installed AND it's too big to move to the SD card and is running constantly: running down my battery and using all my processor's resources! Thank you, thank you, thank you for destroying this app but making it so it wouldn't work UNLESS I updated. I didn't REALLY want to talk to my children at Christmastime! Why would I? Full Review

No privacy!! I hate the new green minutes active bubble feature. If I can't turn it off somehow I won't use messenger. I don't need the whole world seeing how often I use it. This opens the door to a world of problems. If I need a conversation with one person and I'm ignoring the rest I don't need them seeing I am active. Full Review

It would be nice if messages didn't take hours and sometimes days to go through. My mother and i both have this issue. Also shows active now when we are not. I was literally sitting in the room with the person it said was active now and the only device they are logged on to was powered off charging beside me. Full Review

Not only did my message somehow send to the wrong person, it sent to someone who's not even on my contact list, someone that I'm not even connected to on Facebook! That could have gone horribly wrong if it was a different message or different person, I have no idea how a glitch that big could happen, but please fix this now!! Full Review

It doesn't tell me I have a missed call and also it doesn't ring when someone is trying to call me. And that is the same with messages it doesn't tell me I have a missed call or message till like 10 mins after they tried to call/text and it bothers me. Please try to fix this. I know this is happening to other people and not just me because I know someone that had told me about their problem and it was the same as mine. Full Review
