A shame for Verizon 1/5
By Jay 4798
Please fix the synchronize problems it’s not that hard for a company like you
It’s OK 3/5
I like that I can receive my messages on my iPad or laptop however, there the app does not talk to each other...If I read a message on my phone, I do not like that it appears as unread on my iPad. I also do like that any responses that I send on my iPad do not appear on my phone.
Poor app 1/5
I got this app per the suggestion of a customer service rep because we moved to a place with no service and rely on Wi-Fi. It periodically won't let me send texts and I am only able to receive them. It also consistently tells me I have thousands of unopened messages when I don't. It hasn't really helped me in a situation where I need it to yet.
Random notifications 2/5
I mute a conversation but I still get everything they send, and it’s really annoying, but still a cool app
Great app 5/5
I love this app because I have an IPhone but some of my friends and family do not. I can actually send them a picture or video at the first try. Thank You Verizon!
Probably the best messaging application available with phone capabilities. 5/5
Greatly improved and getting better. Works pretty good on a 10 iPad. Needs improvement and updates for use on a 12 iPad, however still seems to be the best available messaging application with phone capabilities.
Auto reply 1/5
The auto reply doesn’t work.
Missing texts! 2/5
By This PersonAlso
I started using this on my iPad when I switched from an iPhone to an Android. I use the messaging app that came on the phone and I use this on my iPad. Most of the time (maybe all the time), the text from one doesn’t show up on the other. Most disconcerting of all, some texts never arrive. I just can’t operate like that.
It functions but not optimally 2/5
It’s certainly handy to manage texts from my iPad. I cannot find a way to receive notifications that I have a new message. If I’m without my phone and dependent upon my iPad, I need to open the app to check for messages, which is crazy.
Can’t “not” have it, so guess it will have to do 2/5
By MS AVGURU
I moved from AT&T to Verizon and was spoiled apparently as I could link my iPad Pro 10.5 to my phone (as I can with Verizon) but then I could sent text messages to green bubbles and blue bubbles (meaning apple and android) users. I had an AT&T cellular iPad Pro 10.5 as I do now with Verizon as using a Wi-Fi only iPad was too problematic for me with my business taking me out to job sites under construction with no Wi-Fi and needing to do quotes.
I couldn’t send chats with Verizon using my iPad Pro 10.5 (same exact model) and thought something wasn’t set right. That is what Apple support told me, too at first. Then I got an Apple support tech who volunteered to talk 3-way with a high end tech person with Verizon. Apparently Verizon “lacks the technical capacity” to allow chats with Android users using any iPads with or without cellular capability. Their answer is to use this chat app.
I have installed and used it the past week.
Clunky. Slow to respond. Often stays an hour behind what is sent out via my phone (they are all supposed to sync together, including the desk top app I am using on my Windows PC, no I haven’t switched that yet, but probably will as I have after decades switched my tablet to iPad then my phone...baby steps). Sometimes it stays a half day behind and I haven’t figured out a way to refresh it.
Most frustrating is that the app will show a red “2” or “4” or whatever to notify me that there are new messages as it should, but to clear them is not automatic or easy. I have to press the message multiple times as if it is frozen. Sometimes I have to just pick any one that will allow me to clear it. I wish if they could not make it work they could at least have an option to “mark all as read”.
I do like having the sync between the phone, iPad and PC. I will use the PC if sitting at my desk. I just wish they paid more attention to this app at verizon and realized the importance it has to us since we can’t chat with Android users without this. This is supposed to be a “Hangouts” type of thing for several people in a group and I have not used it that way, although it would be nice in that it has a lot of neat emojis for that. I would rather them spend their development time making this work more responsively and sync better and lose the clunkiness.
I “have to” use this or I can’t text my Android usersand clients from this iPad and I like to use the iPad because of the full sized BT keyboard. In fact she frustrated the keyboard allows connection to two devices so I find myself connecting it to my IPhone XR and texting with anyone I want, iOS or Android as they can make the APple phones work with chat, just not iPads, which to me makes no sense.
So 2 stars. barely as it is functional. I just wish there was a better option
Very good app 5/5
I’m very happy with this app. It is simple to use and is exactly what I needed for messaging.
Pop ups 1/5
By Kit Ricc
Every time I try to use this app I get a pop up that asks me if I want to review it. It would be a four or five star review but it gets one star because of the pop up.
Not needed 1/5
Don’t need it, except to see a video someone sends you that Verizon thinks is too big to go through the iPhone messenger.
Awesome app 5/5
All of you people rating this so low, are morons.
Verizon is the only company that has an app like that, and it actually works very fast. I can send text messages with my other phone number, on my iPhone. It works surprisingly well!
The UI is not perfect, and I really hope they will make it better. But awesome job, Verizon developers!
Good App 4/5
By Drew Donato II
I receive texts from this app earlier on this app than I do in iMessage (sometimes iMessage doesn't gets texts at all but this app does), a good app overall.
Very disappointed 1/5
My family has used this app for messaging while connected to WiFi, when we couldn’t get service through our provider for years. We live in the country where it’s hard to pick up cell service. I recently got a new phone and when I try to verify my number through the app, it sends me a QR code instead of texting me a numeric code. The QR code will not scan at all. I’ve tried for a week now. Tried in town and at home. Installed and uninstalled so many times. The app simply will not work on my iPhone 6.
Alphabetical order 3/5
I like the app but I am OCD I like things in order and 90 % of what I have to deal with is caos is there a way to put my messages in some kind of order so I don’t have to make mistakes when scrolling through to find something that would make your messaging easier to read and use
Nice app 5/5
App works really well with my i pad and now that it has the new call feature i can also receive calls and make calls thru it also
Worst app ever 1/5
By Sailor-Soldier Drew
I don’t get notifications then downloads don’t happen.
Love the app 5/5
By military cook
Love the app I was lost without it I am a new text person and a tablet user it has kept me in touch with people thank you
inconsistent quality 2/5
for a large cell phone company this app is a poor reflection of otherwise good service.many times text msgs never make it to this app. very frustrating
I enjoy it very much!!
Why am I not able to see videos and some regular texts through my regular messages on my iPhone. I don’t get why this had to be downloaded. It’s really annoying and confusing to me. How do I get back to the regular way of texting and viewing videos without this app??!
By WETSU 24
Why do I need this? I have text on my Verizon service. Needed to download this to see a friends video. Hate getting 2 texts on the same device.
I am not a Verizon customer but my friends are and it’s making me download this app to view videos and to set up the app you have to use a different device it’s complicated and confusing I do not recommend at all
Great idea, needs improvement 3/5
I like the idea of this app, but the calling feature struggles on the other devices. Also messages do not sync between devices.
Works for most intended purpose 4/5
By Dillon's mom
I have this app on my phone and tablet. The messages sync just fine. I can schedule a message for delivery later. It works as intended. I wish the emoji and gifs were better; but it serves it’s intended purpose. Nothing fancy.
Nothing but spam 1/5
By Shana Ward
Spam and when I used this app I get 10 calls per hour
Love It....... 5/5
Great to review your messages.......
This app crashes just randomly as I begin typing a message and have to start over but this is typical of verizon fix it
Good, but very glitchy 2/5
It's a good app, and I like using it. But that's on Android. On iPhone, that's a different story. It tends to crash a lot, fail to display contacts and just the phone numbers, etc. If the glitches were fixed, it would be a definite five stars.
Working messenger + ??? 1/5
Had it originally on my iPhone but then it only worked willynilly! Went to VERIZON store and they were surprised I even had it on my phone cause most of the time it doesn’t work!
Deleted it completely then found out I was missing messages...reinstalled it and it missed messages half the time!
I guess half of the messages are better than none!
Not recommended 2/5
It’s great that I can use this app to get my personal phone messages and calls on my work phone, but every time I get a new message, it marks every message I’ve ever gotten as unread. You can’t block spam call numbers through it, so I have to wait until I get to my other phone to do that— but you can bet the calls come through. It’s buggy. It doesn’t show my contacts when I get new messages in my notification screen. Lots of problems.
It is the best so far, add more, you can do it, 5/5
By G Malvar
This keeps me in y
Touch. You need to add anonymous ways where number is not visible, but a name we chose... names ... not just one! Do it, send me updates and tutorials urials
Will not open videos have to use other program
Terrible app 1/5
One of the most unreliable text messaging platforms I’ve ever used. Download if you love headaches and migraines and hate smoothly running apps.
This app has gotten so buggy and often stalls... super annoying.
No need for another app 1/5
I now get two messages from people who have android phones with this app. I almost feel like Verizon wants to control our text messaging. It’s useless!
Crashed few times today, Dec. 26! 2/5
Every time I typed few words then without warning it crashed! Pls fix it!
Android turned IOS -UGHHH 4/5
I crossed over to the Darkside from android about four months ago. I miss my galaxy but for convenience with the rest of the family. I loved the abilities of messages+ on my Android, it isn’t the same on the iPhone but it’s still better than it he stock messaging apps.
Group Messages 3/5
System has trouble with group messaging.
Always sending duplicate copies. Doesn’t work properly with IPhone vs Android.
Systems will not sync properly.
Shittiest app on the planet!!! Synchronization is mediocre at best. QoS of this is is also mediocre... I'm not wasting time writing feedback... Definitely falling way behind, just look at the rest of everyone's feedback...
Needs to be fixed 1/5
By Reed A.
Couldn’t make it past the phone number verification, a message shows that it’s unable to generate a pin.
This app does not work with Straight Talk 1/5
This app does not work with Straight Talk. In the pictures for this app it says for all carriers that is not true when you get the QR code and you scan it it will say UNKNOWN ERROR I have tried this 100 times. please tell me how to fix this.
Dose not work 1/5
I am sorry to say this but this does not work I’ve use the code 3 different times they are sent and it is not working it is just a waste of my time why don’t you actually invent something that works on this phone
Works good for the most part 4/5
The app lags or doesn’t update as well as my phone.
Dual Sim 1/5
Does not activate on a device with dual sim activated. Will not even send the activation text.
Horrible, AVOID THIS APP AT ALL COST. 1/5
Do not update or install the new Verizon Message Plus(+) app. It will kill your app on other devices like you iPads and it is filled with glitches.
2,000 messages 2/5
Even when you have one new message and I’ll markdown you have to 2,100+
