  • what’s going on?

    By emmyyyhanna
    Every time I open the app it saves my last message in the typing box and I need to delete it every time
  • Not solved: Last message sent loads back in text box

    By westcststruttin
    Well... it worked for a few messages and now it’s doing it again. I’m so sick of anything to do with Facebook. For those who have the last message sent loaded back in the text box the next time you open the app and you have to delete it before sending another message, here’s the solution that worked for me. I deleted the app, shut my phone off, then reinstalled the app after turning my phone back on. So far it’s worked and the last sent message is no longer in the text box.
  • Totally screwed up

    By appalcarp
    On ipad Pro 13.1.3 the messages do not show at the top so you cannot open new ones. How stupid.
  • I am having problems

    By TheBigFrog07
    The app is good but to play the 8 pool app it says I need to update but it will not let me
  • Why are you forcing me to update my app..

  • Need help? Tough Luck

    By AngrySoft
    No method exists to contact a real person about a support issue by phone, email, or otherwise. The tech support bot cannot understand human input. I can’t believe they're harvesting my data in exchange for this broken app.
  • Comes halfway

    By msgrpdw
    Why does the app, when opened, only shows half the page? Something is wrong and has been this way since the upgrade. (Facebook also) Getting tired of deleting app and downloading.
  • Glitch Issues

    By qveen_a1q
    Every time I exit off the app my old messages that I’ve already sent is still being typed when I’m not even typing anymore. I’ve tried reinstalling this app but it just keeps doing the same thing.
  • Please fix- the update is failing

    By lcoNONO
    New update continues to bug out by not loading view completely- I continue to delete the app and download again to fix. Please correct the issue.

  • Each update resets preferences

    By Ex BH boy
    Each time a new update comes out it resets my preferences. I don’t want my active status to show but this f*%c#|}g app changes this preference with each update. It’s very Facebook-like to imagine they should decide what’s best for the user. Lee Iacocca did this with GM in the ‘80s. Look where it got them...
  • Criminal Enterprise

    By Old Nix Cambridge
    This app, in conjunction with it’s parent Facebook, will steal and sell your private information for profit, to those who will undermine your personal welfare and the welfare of your and other countries. DO NOT USE IT!
  • Recent calls

    By msleelee69
    Although the update is amazing but there is one thing I can’t seem to figure out. Before the update I could view all the calls that were made in messenger but now, I can no longer view them. Or I just can’t figure it out. Please fix this. I like being able to see the call history.
  • Another bug

    By Stephlikesmusic
    Squashed some bugs, maybe, but it also separated several of my contact names from their numbers and other info, so that it’s listing messages under the number, but not the name. Took all the hyphens out of the numbers, too, which is really weird.
  • Hacked.

  • Very angry

    By fedupwithmessenger
    Your app doesn’t work at all either fix it or remove the active now feature and put notifications on so that you know when someone is on so that you don’t have to watch every minute I watch every minute and still miss my friends on Facebook if you don’t want to fix the active now feature just get rid of it already no you don’t want to you enjoy upsetting people if I could give this app a 0 I would and stop stalking me this app doesn’t even deserve a 0 it deserves less then a 0

    No longer seeing dark mode as an option
  • Crashing!!!

    By ksopb
    Why does this app continue to crash?? It’s been a problem since the iOS 13 update and none of the 3 following updates have helped. Just about every time I try to use it, I have to reboot my IPad first. Why can’t we’ll enough, be left alone?
  • No longer works!

    By Me's Doodle Designs
    I can no longer access messenger on my ipad pro. Works on my iphone, but ipad is half black and shows nothing else. Bummed. I use this every day. Not sure how else to ask for help.
  • Saving pre typed messages

    By Drunk Ideas Gone Bad
    It’s saving the messages like it never sent them and then they send again. Some are garbled and unreadable.
  • Crashed 6 times

    By Marshalls Shopper - Afsana
    App crashed 6 times this morning ! What the heck, can’t you guys monitor / check stability before any new update or release ??? Fix the crash ASAP!
  • Very bad

  • I hope Facebook allows users to be able to download audio file on Facebook messenger

    By TeCoPaN
    I hope Facebook allows users to be able to download audio file on Facebook messenger such as voice mail and other audio
  • Needs and seen/unseen feature

    By cents66
    I agree with a previous reviewer. I would like more control over when others can see when I’m active or not so I can jump in and out quickly without being bombarded with messages. Also, I like the call audio for out of country calls but the audio can get intermittent, delays, echoes or weird radio-like frequencies coming in a little more often which makes communication impossible at times. And finally, just a suggestion, but it would be nice to be able to group my contacts without making a group msg. This way I can target various people from my friends to those that are in actual groups without having to scroll and scroll to find them.
  • A block feature should be available on this site.

    By Lillian Waite
    I do not have this feature and have annoying notifications from people I don’t know that keep coming and I can not block. There should be a block feature.
  • nice one

  • Crashing

    By tj hdhdhehe
    App crashes for no reason. It has done this during several operations. So I am not sure what is triggering the crash. I have most recent update. I am running iOS 13.1.3 on the iPhone 8
  • Useless since update

    By RunCRun
    Since latest update, this app is useless. It says it has to send me a code to verify my number before I can use. Then I never get a code. So messenger is useless to me.
  • Can’t get messenger on iPhone

    By Whitedoves1
    People are sending me messages I cannot get them the Facebook messenger is not working
  • I don’t understand

    By Wontevenletmeputanickname
    How to reinstall the icon. When I go to App Store it only allows me to open. Nothing to reinstall icon. And it won’t let me cancel out ignore a message when I want to put it back to normal
  • Privacy concerns

    By Don'tWantToType
    It’s a very useful app but I wouldn’t trust conversations and calls to be fully encrypted and would stay private. Also, annoying that after every update my Active Status turns back On. I know that I can manually turn it off but before this feature is turned on there should be a pop up asking for your permission. Otherwise, it’s obvious how little the maker cares about your privacy and wants you to be exposed just so that their app gets used more. Also what should go is automatic messages starting when you friend a new person. Okay you can suggest to connect but don’t actually start a convo and do that Waving nonsense.

    By hoLITty
    The latest update (oct 16ish) created a glitch so everything I type in messenger is placed back in my text box the next time I go chat. So I have to delete text from my chat each time I want to type something new. A real pain In the butt. Please fix!

  • Partial messages

    By PuertoRockDR
    So I like the app but every time I post a message in a chat and then close the app and reopen it there is always a partial message already typed in. Why? It is extremely annoying

  • App force me to synchronize with my contacts.

    App force me to synchronize with my contacts. So, now you need to synchronize before you will be able to use this app!!!😡
  • Update??

    By Granny22 kids
    Well now my entire screen is skewed in this app since the latest update. What’s that old adage? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Worked before the latest update......back to the drawing board programmers!!
