good stuff 5/5
By Ravenclaw gitl
i really like being able to keep in touch with my friends. the games are fun as heck. i thought of something that might make it better: one bank for all the games? i have 50000 coins in endless lake but i've bought all the skins. i have 200 coins in templar 2048 and i want the witch version. this is a really petty concern but just a suggestion, a single bank would be rad
Delete, edit contact option 3/5
I like the app I've been using for a long time since we don't have other option to chat with friends or family using Facebook but I'd like the option to delete and edit contacts.
Please stop with snap chat rip offs!!!! 1/5
Seriously?! If anyone wants snap chat as a feature they will download Snapchat!! I disabled the camera for the app specifically because I don't want the Snapchat ripoff.
Why do I need reactions to messages? I would just send another message with the hundreds of other emotes available.... Does anyone think these updates through?
I don't like the new update as it doesn't allow you to delete conversations. When you swipe left now you are taken to the people tab instead of being able to delete. This is causing my app to be clogged with old conversations. Also help is not working, it says to try again later.
Painful to use! 1/5
Thanks to the 3/17/17 and 3/22/17 update, FB messenger app is a pain to use. While using FB, the Messenger icon constantly shows that I have unread messages, which I don't. And every swipe up or down reveals the stupid camera/video feature (which I never use anyway!) even when you're trying to search for these "unopened" messages. Currently, as of the 3/22/17 update, I have deleted the app and reinstalled, but cannot get into Messenger, because every time I try to sign in, it says I'm not connected to the internet. Which is incorrect. It didn't have any probs using the internet/cellular network to download the app, but won't let me enter the app using internet/cellular. So frustrating. And why do I have to enter my email/phone # and password to login to Messenger, when EVERY OTHER APP that uses FB to login, just logs me in? But when I try to login to an app that is affiliated with FB, you want to treat me like I'm a stranger! Smh!!! Please just put it back to the way it was, before adding all the video/calling features. Those aren't what we want. We just want a way to privately message strangers without giving out personal cell phone info!
Great app but... 2/5
I like this app, it's great and all but, my Display hasnt changed for about 2 years, the app is up to date but it doesn't look as new as everyone else's
GET RID OF STORIES 1/5
This is a shameless ripoff of Snapchat (as FB seems to be doing with all of their apps) and it's completely irrelevant to what I use messenger for! Get rid of it!!!!
Becoming bloat ware 1/5
No one wants a Snapchat clone, this update is more likely to convince people to leave messenger, keep it simple or at least give us an option to opt out
Doesn't Update Picture 3/5
The messenger app doesn't update profile picture when changed in the FB app. If there's a trick to it, I haven't figured it out. čśĹ
Barely works, exceedingly annoying 2/5
By Mark Sutton
So messenger used to be an aspect of the original Facebook app. It worked much better then, and didn't ask me to turn on notifications every single time I open the app. I don't want to turn on notifications, i get enough of them from every other app. Also, I've deleted FB from my phone, can't recommend it enough. Really takes a lot of stress out of your life.
New update 1/5
By Arely Quintanilla
I am not able to login ughh:-/
Battery draining 1/5
All the new updates for messenger and Facebook have made the app drain my battery
1.5 hours on messenger
35% of my battery gone
And 22% gone with 2 hours on Facebook.
My battery has never drained this fast
If this doesn't get fixed I'm deleting the app all together
I used to like this app just fine. Unfortunately the last 1-2 months worth of updates are just irritating. I hate the "my day" feature and how I'm constantly being prompted to take pictures. I like the feature when I want to but it shouldn't constantly be shoved in my face. It irritating. Under message requests there's a constantly long list of suggested contacts. I mean people I've never heard of and aren't even friends with my friends. Why would they be suggested? You also can't delete them. Some of the new features are cool but please get rid of the annoying stuff. Everyone I've talked to has said the same thing!
COMPLETELY TRASH APP NOW 1/5
Messenger use to be one of my favorite apps till the started the daily updates and trying way to hard to be like all the mainstream apps now let messenger be for messages not uploading stories like Snapchat and Instagram now!!!!
Don't work 1/5
By iPhone 7 plus bummed
I recently switched from an android to iPhone 7 plus and was a big time messenger user but now it doesn't work at all!!! I used messenger for basically every call!! I'm so frustrated!!!
By Hamada Samir
Thanks for the development
messenger day stories are ridiculous 1/5
stop trying to copy other social medias, it's annoying and it's very in your face, at least make it smaller. if i could give this app a zero, i would.
Messenger, now with 75% less messaging. 1/5
A few UI updates ago, Messenger was a fine app. You could message all of your Facebook friends and groups with ease. Then they decided to add some random clutter, adding useless buttons all over the messaging screen and then later by changing the homescreen by reducing the contact list to 3 friends you actually want to message and then 10 friends you don't care about.
After that point, I refused to update the app. And now they've forced this update that turns messenger into a middle school student's attempt of a Snapchat app, and they were so proud of that for some reason that they reserved a massive section for it at the top of your list... As well as the bottom of the screen, the top of your keyboard, the bottom of the chat screen and they've made it so when you scroll up it opens your camera to send a not-Snapchat to all your friends.
Very unprofessional, Facebook. Shame on you.
Again you remove the GIF keyboard? 1/5
By Madame Redz
Why with every update do you remove features that I heavily use? I work tech...I know you can track usage of features. Stop it.

I was cool with messenger! Up until they took my games away! Bring my games back pronto !
App keeps on crashing 1/5
I really don't know what to do. I have deleted and installed the app numerous times but it is not fixing the problem. My messenger app is not working. I need a solution
Too large to download 1/5
Can't turn off notifications and use the app. Disappointing.
What happened to the games??? čś×

This app is great!
HATE IT!!! 1/5
By Philippians 4:8
Since the new update I can no longer swipe left to delete a conversation and there's nowhere that tells me how. Even the help section doesn't tell me because it won't show me the answer to that question.
I just love the app
Profile Picture not Syncing 3/5
By Sterling Gilliam III
The new Messenger is pretty much the same, but it keeps my old Facebook profile picture and does not update with my new one. There is no way for me to change it; this should be fixed.
The worst, least user-friendly piece of software I've ever been forced to install 1/5
By Captain Rob
This app is entirely unnecessary and it is very annoying that we have to have a separate app from Facebook. It's infuriating that I can't copy URLs or open links outside of the app. If someone sends something to me that I want to open in an actual web browser, I have to remember the name and try to find it by googling it instead of being able to just open it normally. I'm very worried about my privacy with this app, and they continue to rip off Snapchat with "new features". This is the most backwards-thinking, difficult, unreliable app.
Ruined Facebook now it's ruining itself

By Track g
I'm Having problems with this app it seems it messages on its own I have 8 messages & i when I click on to read them it takes me back to this app in my opinion i don't really care for the new version
No information given 1/5
It is not user friendly at all. It is more about forcing versions down your throat without telling you what it is then being useful. Delete it, don't even download it. Find something else or just use your regular phone. It's useless. Too bad I can't give it zero stars.
By A fellow messenger
Where did all the games go?? How do I play games on messenger????
Lo mejor 5/5
manipulated into downloading an app i didnt need 1/5
Facebook Messenger is so unnecessary that Facebook uses coercion tactics to get its users to download the app. I only got it to avoid the sheer inconvenience of inexplicably NOT BEING ALLOWED TO CHECK MY MESSAGES FROM MY PHONE ANYMORE. Why?? Please, please let me check messages from my phone. Messenger app doesn't always load my messages, so I've missed everything from hanging out with friends to job opportunities. Why is it Facebook's decision to literally prevent people from checking their messages the old fashioned way? When you finally download this useless garbage, it insists that you turn on notifications, lighting up with a red number 1 as if you have an unread message. I'll save you the time checking: unless you turn on Messenger notifications, you will have that red number as long as you have the app. Soon, the sight of it will drive you insane, and you'll remove the app out of spite, smash your phone on the curb, get hundreds of tattoos, try hard drugs, try shepherding in a remote location, try rehab, then finally build yourself a one-person spacecraft capable of sustaining inter-orbital life for the next 80 years and leave this planet for good. Thanks for nothing facebook messenger.
Why can't you just dm through Facebook? What is the frickin point of constantly switching apps?
Bring it to us finally 1/5
Bring the bubble like android users have so don't have to keep closing out of apps just to open messenger
It's good 5/5
Walnuts are good but chinnuts are better.
Facebook messenger now makes it so easy for people to be unfaithful in relationships with their "secret conversations". Why would you create this option?
only play 5/5

Very Good 5/5
By MrPo Apple5s
I love to communicate with family friends and for my job (co-workers and clients) because I am hard of hearing and this is convenient for people who can't afford for text messages with their cell phone plans BUT I hate updates - it causes problems and sometimes I lose my messages. I am all for updates if it benefits for improvements.
Assistive touch not working in the app quite frequently 2/5
Refer to the title
Update Description 1/5
Please list what the new features are in an update.
This app is cool and I like it
Crashes every so often 4/5
Pretty good but sometimes it crashes.
Ooh! Another update! 1/5
Seriously? March 15, 17, and 22? I thought you updated every two weeks, not every two to three days. And this my day thing? What, is not being snapchat not good enough for you? Yeah. That's what I want to see. The daily pictures of someone I barely talk to, only now it's plastered at the top of my app for the whole day. What was the thought process behind this? Let's make our app like snapchat.. only more annoying!
Making it redundant 3/5
It's ok but adding one more bloat ware and starting to take up space in phone
