    Oh Facebook, what an abomination you have become.

    For a lil while now when I get off a call that lasted say 18 minutes it only says that it was a 44 second call? Random Bug

    This new messenger app is not the best it needs to get back to original app
  • Beyond Unhappy

    By Farmgal4
    I’ve had nothing but problems since the new update/version. Today’s problem is that it’ll only let me share with 8 people. There’s no search bar or anything that will allow me to to share with anyone but those 8. It’s a new problem everyday. I wonder what tomorrow’s problem will be, because I know it’s coming. Please put it back the way it used to be or I’m done. It’s not worth the hassle!

    I just wish theres a light pastel purple in the chatbox . I feel sad it was gone
  • Doesn’t work half the time

    By aujwelch
    I constantly have to refresh and close the app and reopen it just to see messages. It will give me a notification and I will click on it then it will not show the message in the app. Constantly says reconnecting and waiting to reconnect. Happens even when my connection is strong and using my data. This just started happening after the latest update. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times. The app Used to be ok but now it’s just garbage. Going to use a different one now.
  • Me da la gana de poner 5 estrellas

    Más comunicación con putas

    By archive button presser
    Messenger basically harassed me into updating the app because the older version is no longer supported. I can no longer archive my messages, can’t have a clear preview of my messages without opening it, and can’t navigate through my group chats anymore. I was so used to simply swiping left to see the friends who are Active Now, but now I have to press a button on the bottom for that. It is confusing to determine which messages I have or have not yet viewed because all the names are in bold. The only indicator is the blue dot on the right side of the chat. It is also less appealing to watch stories now because of all the added buttons I need to press. BRING BACK THE ARCHIVE BUTTON PLEASE!
  • Latest update

    By ig : alishaaaaaaaa__
    There's a glitch in the app with the latest version.. I'm not sure what happened but sometimes when I open the app, the font i'm tiny and it won't load pictures or open my keyboard. I have to close the app and open it again for it to go back normal. Pls fix!
  • Online Status is Inaccurate

    By Anonymous 2/26
    Web version is more accurate while the app keeps displaying people as online with the green circle.
  • Um

    By Adamah Mashiach
    Why is it when there’s 1 unread message, messenger will automatically open that message thread when you open messenger? That’s very annoying
  • Hello

    By being honest please help
    My day don’t show up on my messenger
  • Horrible update

    By mayalie
    You have ruined a good simple app. I’m not interested in all the add on crap.
  • Martie Smith

    By HappyHabibi
    Message anyone without number. NO! Communication with friends is essential, but strangers with whom I have not shared my number, robo calls, scam promoters, hang ups.... no thank you. I want more security, not more entertainment toys. 12+ world geography, science and math games please. Promote curiosity, meet challenges, learn to lose and improve skills, equip the next generation to lead. How you can persuade 12+ that vigorous physical exercise and face-to-face interactions positively impact all aspects of our lives, beats me. Parents aren’t the answer. They give kids the phones...much younger than 12. Thank you for considering my comments.
  • Suspicious messages

    This app needs an option so we can delete and/or report a message that we believe is a trap or scam or sent from a hacked account. I had no problems with messenger before it was separated from Facebook and still don’t know what could possibly be the advantage of the separation.
  • Cannot mute sound

    By Mei Tal
    Even when the app is in the background it still makes noise when someone views a message. Super annoying
  • Red Dot of Death

    By Jaime D
    Once again, here I am writing you all (in a different manner this time) seems like you all are having several issues with the new updates. You would think Facebook would do extensive testing before rolling out a new version. Obviously not enough testing. WHY IN THE WORLD DOES MESSENGER KEEP SAYING I HAVE 4 UNREAD MESSAGES! I don’t. It is the most annoying thing to have the red notification dot on my phone. I use my phone for business and when I see a red dot, that says “hey, look st me” only to find out, it’s not real. Please make it go away! I have deleted and reinstalled this app at least 10 times!!! I’m over it!! BEYOND ANNOYING!
  • Stupid

    By Itzcaramel
    So on Instagram there was this thing and They said to go onto messenger and since I don’t have an account I had to create one. But on messenger it won’t let me use my name. I tried everything from creating a Facebook account to trying different name, but Facebook just would allow me to use anything for the name so then I could sign into it

  • New ui is awful

    By keoneal5
    The new three-tab UI is clunky and awful!! It’s huge and nothing is separated, and it looks way too busy. I hate this app.
  • Opening automatically...

    By xoxtaryn
    It’d be great if when I went into messenger it wouldn’t open up into a new message I have from someone.

  • What happen???

    By Ivory_C
    This app was working fine on my device. Once I installed the lastest update now I can't open/play EverWing. Not sure if it's iOS device or what.
  • The Share extension needs to be fixed

    By jasperum
    The iOS “Extensibility” for Messenger needs to be fixed. I can’t search for people who I wanna send my message to. Instead, the app extension only displays a list of my recently contacted people!
  • Worst messaging

    By Tobin46
    Why is the messenger app separate from Facebook.. Dumbest idea ever
  • All of us can’t be wrong......

    By Chillmagnet
    As of version 175, the feature to log out is still unavailable...... why should I have to go through the Facebook app convoluted way of logging out??? I have to login to use the app, it I can’t log out. I’ll revisit on version 200. Update... as of version 202, I still cannot log out of messenger. Even if I log out of messenger though Facebook, then log out of Facebook, I can still get back into messenger with a click of a button, which means I was never logged out. You can delete the app and reinstall it and still get back in with a click of a button.
  • Freezes

    By foot5841
    App CONSTANTLY FREEZES on my IPad. Have to either delete and reload or power off and on. If certain friends had other messenger software I would delete this and NEVER use it again.

    You let me get into it
  • Good

    By Uilven
    Will give higher stars if the app allowed me to have full screen message view. Not this crap half only in use. Edit. I’m am idiot and found how. Upped rating
  • It’s ok

    By FireMadMan151
    The only thing that I HATE is that you have to have a gimail account or a phone number

  • Not Good Anymore

    By Waste Money For Them
    It seems like going down every update: too slow, the stickers load extremely slow, auto scrolling up while using on web-browser... Too many update for their experiment to get money from ads, not for customer
  • Background colour

    By noorlb
    Dear messenger please change your background colour white to black. Use any drak background please
  • Very laggy.

    By sassyrebel36
    It keeps crashing, connecting and disconnecting, going back to the old messenger and I have to close out the app to get messages when it does this. I don’t know what’s going on with the app. It’s been doing this since the new update. Please fix it.
  • Can only send a message to recents!??? Not good!

    By Intelliaudio
    Needs testing before release!
  • Messenger

    By audikah:);)😝😝😝
    I like messenger but I would’ve gave it a five stars only if it didn’t glitch and that’s the only reason I don’t use it all of the time
  • Terrible apps

    By bea lopez pino
    No privacy ay all.
  • Says that I have a message when I don't

    By SabSch16
    Whenever I open the Facebook app, it says that I have a message on messenger and I don't or Ill have the red notification bubble with a 1 at the corner of the app but there isn't actually anything in the app. It's so annoying.
  • Why am I seeing people I don’t know

    By :Darrow
    Please for the love of all things good get the people who aren’t on my friends list out of the “people” tab I don’t want to see them that’s why they’re not on my friends list.
  • shouldn't be a separate app

    By 1DArigrande
    ridiculous..just make it a part of the facebook app, makes no sense
  • Buggy

    By Hridoy35
    The new messenger app doesn’t let me send the picture directly from The screenshot. It suggests only recent people. But there is no search option like before to actually search and find and then send. Video Call needs to be developed, also audio.
  • No costumer help what so ever

    By muna tina
    I love this app, it’s the app I use to contact Moat of my friends, but when my friends send me photos or voice massages they never load. I’ve sent dozens of reports back to Facebook for about 2 months now with no response, and have updated the app every time they have an update. It still doesn’t help.
  • Bad update
