Messenger app reviews

  • Please update 1/5

    By duc-u-zoom
    Forever getting started on my mac
  • it's not working from 2 days 1/5

    By Mubtasim Fuad
    i can't find any reason and .. previously it was bad now it's unuseable
  • Seems wanting to me...! 3/5

    By abq jim
    I just loaded this on my MacBook Air (late 2020 model), and have eto say that it seems like the UI is somewhat broken. There are simple functions on the UI that just don't seem to work as I would expect. For example: The Page Options icon (... in upper right of UI), when clicked nothing happens - UNTIL you click again just off the ... icon. Also If I click on my profile image (lower left of UI) NOTHING HAPPENS - until I click - once again - somewhere OFF that icon. Where selecting a particular conversation would seem to be the "meat and potatoes" of the App, even that doesn't work as it seems like it should. I click on the specific message in the list, and - you guessed it - NOTHING HAPPENS. If I then slide my mouse pointer off to the left margin, lo-and-behold, the message finally comes up. I just don't get this! It seems to be the LEAST INTUITIVE user interface (UI) I have ever seen. While the mobile App on my iPhone seems to behave ESACTLY as I would expect, this Mac Desktop incarnation is just the opposite. As a result, I will likely delete it and just use the iPhone (or iPad). Pretty sad!
  • Glitched my entire Macbook. 1/5

    By Seanboy56790
    The app literally glitched my entire laptop when someone tried to call me via Messenger. Had to force shut down my laptop because my laptop just completely stopped responding. Please update it asap because I can't keep restrating my laptop every time this happens,,,,
  • May work better on microsoft 2/5

    By reinhardtusa
    Slow/sluggish, and locks up my laptop. Works pretty good as an Android app (my FREQUENT go-to everytime it starts acting up).
  • Messenger Not Working - Shows Continuous "Getting Started" Loop 1/5

    By HC MacBook Air M2 2022
    I am uable to start the Facebook Messenger on my Macbook Air M2 after an installation. It keeps showing the "Getting Started" loop with no end, no login / password input fields. I have tried deleting the App, reinstalling it, restarting the Mac. Please fix this issue or advise if there is a troubleshoot to fix this error. Thank you!
  • glitchy on m1 1/5

    By user of apz
    weird stuff happens on my m1 with the new update.
  • Completely broken 😵 1/5

    By jingai
    I get 5 messages on my phone, but NONE show up in the Mac app. I reply on the Mac app, and it takes almost a minute for them to show up in the chat and phone and Mac app chats are toally out of sync. Fix now! Otherwise it's completely unusable.
  • Can't Log-In 1/5

    By CJC0201
    2-factor authentication doesn't work - code not received.
  • The worse app on my computer 1/5

    By frustratedvnuser
    This is a terrible app from one of the biggest companies in the world! After installing, I could not log into using all different ways. Using the browser with my logged in account, it showed an unexpected error while asking me to verify my account on browser. Using my correct username/password, it blocked my fb account. Ridiculous!
  • getting started loading but not open up 1/5

    By DeafDaddy

  • Losing interest 2/5

    By JSynn
    I use this for work a lot. My friends and I use to send audio clips, and we then download them. Now you can't even do that. We just stopped since it seems like there is no change in sight.
  • Can't Scroll 1/5

    By Charrliez
    There is no scroll whithin a chat so you can't find what was written before. This should be basic.
  • Buggy 1/5

    By mmoz45673
    app is buggy and commonly freezes
  • Please integrate with Apple Messages! 2/5

    By Fartgas
    Still not integrated or interoperable with Apple Messages! Still unable to switch accounts without logging out completely.
  • Finally its good 5/5

    By Hussein AlBehary
    I had original 2 stars for this app 2 years ago, but now the app is amazing, very smooth and sleek UI, I don't use the web version anymore from how good this app is, and I LOVE the Bubbles on Mac <3

    By Caruso 3
  • Chat head should be automatically hidden 3/5

    By anwarulislam
    Liked the new chat head feature on MacOS. But, unfortunately it doesn't hide automatically after expanding on hover. If any chat not opened it should automatically be hidden after 5 or 10 seconds.
  • Doesn't work for mac 1/5

    By Jaecock
    Won't work for mac at all. It keeps saying error logging in when I try to sign in through fb or put in my username and password manually
  • Access to stored Creditials on Load??? 1/5

    By DigitalPimple

  • doesnt work on my mac 1/5

    By Gshxysgzhayzis
    i have no idea how to give it the permissions it says it needs
  • CPU runs hot 🥵 1/5

    By 14kep
    Whenever i'm on video call within 5 to 10 minutes the cpu temperature rises to 5 to 7 degree sometimes even more. & the battery drains quickly.......
  • crashes!!! 1/5

    By Katsuni
    You guys need to fiv this ASAP, it keeps crashing ! Restarting wont help. Enginers know about the problem but still have not fixed it!
  • They made the contacts pane collapsable! 4/5

    By Adam JP
    I wrote a suggestion to make the contacts pane collapsable and they did it! Still not a lot of customization options but I really appreciate seeing my main request be answered!
  • it just goes away 1/5

    By Bamaboan
    it just goes away and then I try to start it again, then it tells me to use password from key, etc. STILL CAN NOT GET IT TO WORK
  • Latest Update Dumps Electron? 4/5

    By dstudnicky
    Latest updates make it feel like a first-class Mac app. If you regularly use Messenger, you'll definitely want to download the desktop app and use it instead of the website. Would love to see integrations with Focus Modes and Sharing extensions.
  • Does not allow user to log in 1/5

    By Scrumtrulescence
    Log in button is perpetually grayed out after "something went wrong" message. Deleting and redownloading/reinstalling the app does not change anything.
  • F- to the floating corner 1/5

    By astrostl
    The latest version floats a pile of conversation icons in the corner of my Mac. At best it seems this can be configured to auto-collapse to a single icon rather than disabling it. This is terribad and it functionally breaks everyday things like dragging files around your desktop.
  • Works great on my Apple silicon mac now 5/5

    By YesThatAllen
    it's nice to have Messenger as a standalone app
  • Decent App 3/5

    By Alex Celeste
    Facebook Messenger is a great to have on Mac. Since there are a few folks for whom it is the only way I stay in contact, I appreciate having a native app for it on my Mac.
  • Finally! M1, M2 support 5/5

    By anhminhrom
    Fast, fast and fast. It also has some great new features. Love the update. Thank you
  • Great Big Fail 1/5

    By Databanktwo
    I have tried to download and install this app three times for it to get stuck asking me to give it permission to access stored credentials on my iMac. I have no idea what or where to even begin with this, as Messenger isn't even showing up in the OS system preferences anywhere to grant the permissions it seeks. You would think, like most other applications, Messenger's installation process would bring up a window where I can just click on what it needs, or at the very least provide instructions as to where to go and how to do it. Bad programming, the kind you would expect from some single person out in the middle of no man's land who submits their stuff to the Apple App Store, but never updates, or touches it again. It just sits there traveling further and further back in the line of apps where no one would even dare go without a flash light, a bowy knife, and a last will and testament prepared before hand.
  • Still not m1 native 1/5

    By Reidsy

  • Unused features clogging up screen space 1/5

    By bkdsj

  • Muting 4/5

    By issacg9640
    I would like it if we could unmute other people and mute others on the desktop app also, not just mobile.
  • Peace of C... 1/5

    By Givaldo F.
    Everytime that I restart my computer, this app opens up. I changed the settings already but, It doesn't work.
  • Missing Notification Option 2/5

    By RickyMcRickFace
    I have an issue with finding the option to turn on notifications, under the Notification & Focus window. It does not show the Messanger app. Not sure if it's because I have a new M2 chip. Thanks. Great app, but can use a fix.
  • The bubbles feature... 3/5

    By outcoldman
    Why would Apple allow this feature on macOS. It is stupid. The app is ok, but wish would use less resources, and those thousands engineers learn how to make native apps.
  • Complete Trash 1/5

    By Slow03SVT
    I cannot get logged in with two factor authentication even though I am providing the correct code. I need this to work on all devices and I cannot get it to work on even one after I logged out from my last session.

  • Awesome to have, just needs work 3/5

    By Obiwantoby
    It works when it works. Perhaps rosetta is causing issues, I do not know what it is. The app will freeze and require a force quite on my M1 Macbook, or the notifications will stop.
