  • How is it an update

    By Spiff1969
    Every time I update the app, it still doesn’t have the features in the description for the update. It’s sad. Took the better part of a year to get themes working. The same thing will probably happen with the sound emojis for me. Waiting patiently for the right Android phone to switch back.
  • I keep having issues

    By piinkheartz
    1. App refuses to update. 2. Bring back chat heads for iOS.
  • Love the latest update

    By MindxFlayer
    The latest update is great, really enjoying the interactive responses and text emojis!
  • I feel unsafe using this app

    By Kalinabozhkova
    It used to be my favorite way to communicate with people online, but recently it has come out that the owners of this app spy on the users. I don’t want my PRIVATE conversations used against me so I will be moving away from this app all together and hopefully taking my friends and family with me
  • Soundmoji - no Sound option

    By MRBARRY222
    Myself and a couple friends do not see the Sound option for the new update with Soundmoji. 😕
  • Copl

  • I cant make an account

    By el jr cuhcuh
    Dis app doesn’t work at all
  • Worst app ever.

    By Salsawood
    This Messenger app from Facebook and the Facebook app are the WORST apps. They crash, click on button and get blank screen. Cannot copy text in messages easily, or not at all. Facebook Marketplace is terrible. It crashes my iPad after a few minutes. Everything Facebook does is horrible. FB itself is a horrendous failure. Few people post much anymore. FB created Messenger to move into the messaging business and the design and functionality are terrible.
  • Fascists

    By Barefoot on the beach
    Now this company wants to “partner” with churches. We’ve heard that before, ca. 1940s Germany. They covered up pdeophiles, hosted something like 60-70% of all human trafficking, and censored therapeutics that would have saved people dying from C19. Zuck’s net worth doubled last year while many people’s businesses failed and still are. Their reasons for banning and shadow-banning are arbitrary and frivolous. If you haven’t left all things Fecebook, do it now.
  • I hate to see these apps crashing on a iPhone

    By kingonyx592
    Please stop updating apps an it’s having the same problem over n over Fix please Facebook Instagram WhatsApp same f—ing thing
  • No more polls?

    By thebigsad56
    Recently I’m not able to create polls? I have the latest update in messenger so that’s not the problem unless the update removed them.
  • It's nearly perfect

    By Ngu Thuong Long
    Like ever since I updated the newest version my Messenger keep crashing and doesn't work as good as before

    By gghosier
    Can’t stay open for longer then the a sec all ways force closes on me
  • Highly invasive tracking.

    By Blargies
    Im not sure how but Facebook has found a way to track what you send on apple messenger. Sent an ip tracker to my friend so he could catch a scammer and after i pasted the link but didn’t send it i got a hit from a Facebook bot. Tested a few times and it only stopped when I deleted this app.
  • Very useless and annoying

    By Ynnf
    Useless: I can’t send or receive full size pictures. Annoying: asking me to rate call quality after each call, even when I’m driving. Now it seems this can be a safety issue. Please get your sht together :)
  • Make another suitable version please

    By kokyy1
    Why am I not allowed to check my story from messenger? I can only check it from Facebook, please change it so we can check our stories even on messenger.
  • Wants me to pay

    By Savonnasmomy
    It’s charging me $10 to download
  • Trash

    By Jackee88
    Videos won't connect and I'm connected to my WiFi so it's useful to use
  • Wack

    By bedrocker3000

  • Give us our own options to!!!

    By Daniel171717171717
    Literally I send a wrong photo by accident I can’t delete it cause it says delete for me or my old photos show up on Facebook when I clearly deleted them and it still shows so this app is not good at all with privacy
  • Bad

    By juve_queen
    Its only getting worse! Notifications not always working and whenever i try to search back in conversation it stops working. It never loads. This app is only getting worse and annoyng

  • Unread massages

    I don’t have any unread massages but it still shows that I have unread massages on ma Facebook pages I think it should be some button like read all massages in one click
  • No changing Profile Picture option

    By eric38:95
    Messenger please make an option that I can change my profile picture in the app thank you
  • My account hacked

    By wingitmac
    Messenger gets hacked a lot. Mine was hacked today by someone sending messages to all my friends and family. So I deleted it. And posted a message on Facebook to not accept any friend request or respond to any messages on messenger from me.
  • Can’t even log in.

    By 21 Nopes
    Nothing like having to tell people repeatedly not to try to contact you with this garbage. I can’t even log in no matter what I try.
  • Allow us to disable the in app browser!

    By rootbeerdan
    Clicking YouTube videos is a nightmare because you have to open it up in the in app browser, and then click “open in YouTube”. If it would allow us to use Safari it would automatically open in YouTube. Update: I came to write a review about how we should be able to disable the in app browser, and my original review from a while ago is still here. The in app browser makes life so miserable, please allow us to disable it! Update 2: a year later, came to write a review about how we can’t disable the in app browser, but i already did. Twice. Update 3: back to 1 star, unable to upload videos if they were shot in 4K HDR on iPhone 12 Pro Max, hands down one of the worst chat apps on the market right now
  • Doesn’t have the sounds like other users have

    By GRETWOLF2011
    The sounds with emojis aren’t available to me when I should have them
  • Awful

    By saliznut
    I can never load the messages I receive from Facebook. I get sent to Messenger which will not open. I deleted Messenger but this still happens. Do not get Messenger.
  • Bogus app

    By Rob rob.69
    Since I could remember the calling connection has always been terrible, the messages don’t send though they say they’re delivered, and recently messages I send show as sent not delivered and won’t deliver for hours even with really good service or WiFi.
  • Problem

    By kris ❣️
    It always SAYS I HAVE 1 unread message. I DONT.
  • Can’t log in my account

    By Anonymous meagre

  • Facebook forced use

    By Inahaz
    If Facebook has a notification icon telling you you have messages, and Facebook users can message you from Facebook.... this should be built into Facebook and not a separate app. It is annoying.
  • Very Dangerous

    By ccins11
    A former Facebook friend was automatically being logged in to my messenger. We have never shared a device. Facebook customer service refused to help. This app is not secure.
  • Very much interested thank you

    By Belljr8860
    Please add me
  • Monopoly needs to be broken up

    By PaulWolf1
    This company won't stop until it controls all human communication. Look at Microsoft- does anyone actually want their products? There is no alternative since everyone else uses them and you have to use the same program. It should be illegal.
  • Garbage

    By eeee bebe
    This app is trash, my photos won’t send
  • Stolen/ hacked accounts

    By hatebadguys
    My accounts were hacked by multiple techs and Facebook whelp center won’t help. This techs also went and created more fake accounts. I have also found women impersonating me and this is identity theft.

  • Spam & telemarketing calls

    By Wild Bill 45C
    There should be a filter that blocks spam and telemarketing calls. It is so irritating the number of spam and telemarketing calls received each day. I am a do not call list but it does not seem to work. Messenger could solve my problem by identifying these calls and shutting them down. Please do it.
  • This app is going downhill fast

    By Turtl3z
    I have deleted and reinstalled this app four times and it still shows a banner that I have 3 unread messages. Even on the third time of reinstalling the app before I even signed in again, it showed a banner that said I had three messages. It says I’m not connected to the internet even though I got to messenger through Facebook. I’m done with your stupid app. Fix this, or loose more people.
  • Windmill dental

    By your favorite pt
    Best experience I ever had with dentist, almost went to sleep in his chair as he softly cradled me in his arms, to replace my crown. Go see Dr. Winton, he is a Great dentist
