  • Getting worse with every update

    By Donnies Ipad
    So now you cannot delete the zillion contacts this app bombards you with. It has every person of every person that has ever commented or looked at every persons on my friends list posts. I hate having all these unknown people in my contacts. Some of them their names are spelled with symbols.Ridiculous to constantly be bombarded with possible contacts, if I wanted them there I would ask for them. This messenger is just more spy ware and click bait. Deleting it now. Also after you delete a message, it still constantly shows the blue dot “you have a message “ and will not go away. If I were Facebook, I would not claim this app and fire whomever is responsible for making it work.

    Is there a point? I encounter just a lot of childish emoticons, and they don’t really help with more mature thoughts.
  • Opening messages o don’t want to open

    By adrianh49ners

    By Not Happy 45
    With the new update, I lost the thread of my messages. It would have been nice to know this before, I updated the app.
  • Can’t even use the app anymore.

    By ffgdgkzhfzfhhct stu
    The app is constantly freezing up on my phone. It’s pointless to even use it now..... so frustrating!!!!!

  • Roll this into FB, duh!!!

    By wtiuvcbmutf
    Messenger you so lame!
  • No privacy

    By Blackchand
    It shouldn’t show you online to others. Some time I just open it to see if I have something important message and all my friends see I am online and they message me and then I have to message them back and I stay on the app for hours which is killing my time. I don’t wanna lose my friends but they see me online and I don’t reply them back of course they will not keep in touch. So please no body wants that notification just keep it a little secret.
  • Slow

    By jdhegekxudbejs
    Messenger has been taking a long time to send messages lately... sometimes hours. So disappointing
  • Confusing-I like simplicity

    By Ice Cream's girl
    Too much for WHAT?
  • Update needed after one day

    By KmbrHnry01
    I don’t understand how you can download and immediately need updating
  • No more funny voice-to-text??

    By SLiiPNSLiiDE
    A few friends and family and I all enjoyed the extra laugh that the voice-to-text predictions could make and now you get rid of that? For what? More dumb camera instagram-esque stuff??
  • Connection issues

    By Program reviewer
    Just did the messenger update released today for the iPhone and now I’m having connection issues. It keeps saying “waiting to reconnect”.
  • Update doesn’t work

  • Can’t even get back to my account

    By altopablo2000
    Idk why but if I delete my messenger or have another device and put it there when I try to log in it well get to a different account and every single time I try to do a new account it keeps on going to that account since it has the same phone number and I’m getting very annoyed of it

    By ganggana
    Can you please put the facebook stories. We're begging 😭 iPad users.
  • Facebook birthdays

    I am no longer able to view the Birthdays Today. It shows the primary name but when attempting to access all of them the screen is blurred out.
  • Hackers are taking over my messages and my friends

    By Kmpcm
    My messaging has been hacked by someone using my friends Facebook photo. I think Facebook should provide a wAy to delete messaging on the app. I am now Afraid to open any message as it might be the hacker. I told hacker I know you are not my friend and I will report them to Facebook and authorities and they messaged me to go ahead so they do they are not at all worried about being caught.
  • Terrible app, wish it would go away

  • Auto Dark Mode in Messenger

    By Novolto

  • Messenger

    By Boss148
    I know longer have messenger.. I guess you all knocked me out of that site. I have Facebook that will work.
  • Hate it

    By Taylor V M
    I hate the Messenger app. It’s pointless and draining. I should be able to view messages on the website and not be required to install a separate app. Or messages should not be allowed to those that don’t have the app. Regardless of not wanting it, it’s not easy to use. It could be simplified and more straightforward.

    This is definitely pointless from the last review I read you. can text and get a response
  • Worst messaging app ever made!

    By Liliana
    I can’t say, how many voice messages were never sent that I started to record and my phone went to sleep through. This is the worst app ever made for a messaging. The voice message feature is perhaps the worst of all, where if you don’t keep tapping on the screen your phone will go to sleep while you're talking and the message will NOT be there to send. I'm fed up... I can't wait for Facebook to ditch this app and integrate whatsapp to the Facebook experience instead of this. Searching old messages use to duck... Now it's even worse... You search but can only see a fraction of your conversations... Make it impossible to search for old messages... I could go on complaining but whatever! Terrible that's all I have to say.
  • Thanks thanks so soili

  • Videos are messed up, needs fixed

    By Dragon81heart
    Everytime I send a video to someone it gets sent sideways, and cuts off the top and bottom of the video Or it sends upside down Does that on Facebook itself as well... Thing used to work just fine but you gotta mess with it to make things “better” when 9/10 it makes things worse Ever hear the saying “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”? 🤦🏻‍♂️
  • Cool App

  • Forced updates worse than the holocaust. Unusable

    By Colstauff
  • Photo ID?

    By michaeljordantouchdownpass
    I’m already logged in to the regular FB app but for some reason I have to upload a photo ID to log in to messenger. Not only is the idea of giving FB my photo ID absurd given what we know about the company, but I don’t even want to use messenger. I’m basically forced to download this app because otherwise I could be ignoring people that message me on it. It shouldn’t even be an option to message people who don’t have messenger - make it optional.
  • What’s going on ?

    By Divamarp
    Every time I want to see aa message on messenger a screen up up prompting me to renew, I do, wait for it to upload, then I can open an see message. This is getting tedious. What to Don?

    By ElEquisBitch
    Facebook, we don’t need messenger, it’s pointless.
  • Messenger

    By gettdex
    Since I have used this app I have been hacked! So has many of my friends!
  • Bad updates

    By kd ointment
    I hate updates, never once in 40 years of using computers has an update improved my use. Several times it has crashed the system, once to the point of literally throwing it away. If you screwed up to where a change is needed, make the change ONLY to fix the error. Do not add fluff and “enhanced experiences”. If you want to offer those as additional optional items we can pass on fine. I compare most of the upgrades to a guy who has bought his dream sports car, powder blue with the optional handling tires. But then you have an upgrade to the brakes so I bring it in. Three days later it’s finally ready with the updated brakes. That’s good. But you also repainted it orange with red and green stripes, jacked it up 2 feet and put 44” off road mud tires on it.
  • Ditto

    By Resilient One
    I 100% agree with the previous review! Don’t need another web platform for messages, and all that is required from us ( and our data) to use it. “Let well enough alone.”
  • :(

    By mnjknfjnkm
    You have to update it all the time for no reason
  • Anyone else getting creepy messages?

    By Morethanfour
    I received a message supposedly from a trusted neighbor “is this really you in this video?” Neither of us knew anything about it. It was sent as of from her, to me. I could not access this video, but it’s just creepy all the way around. And I hear that FB and messenger has surveillance capabilities. I no longer am using this app. It’s unnecessary anyway as my “real” friends just text me.
  • Tired of it

    By laclassy
    Bad to have an app you can’t turn off and turn it back on when you want to . This app gives a time frame which is soo bad and drains battery life. NOT a good app.
  • Zuckerburg is always watching

    By Mmee4games
    He’s watching
  • Very serious matter....

    It’s very well possible that FB could be using this app to record audio conversations. I saw this on the news and this downright creeps me out after hearing crazy experiences a lot of my friends are having. I looked through this the moment I saw this problem on the news, it’s very serious because I don’t want Facebook recording my talks let alone listening to them. I have a right to my privacy. I’ll find another way possible to reach my folks rather than use messenger. I’m out.
  • photo error
