This app has always been buggy, but it's sooo much worse now. All the chats have disappeared. I can see them on my phone just fine, but on the computer? ahahahhaha NO. It's an empty box. But if I type in someone's name then I can see and reply to chats. But who has time to GUESS who messages them? Give me a break here. This is ridiculous.
No chats loading 1/5
By Jamming Ruri
The screen is all white and no chats load at all... it worked prior to the update.
All my messages are gone after updating 1/5
Updated to the latest vesion and all chat conversations, marketplace conversations and groups are gone.
No Chat List In Update 1/5
I updated to the most recent version and all of the "Chats" list has disappeared. If I start a chat with someone, their name briefly appears and then disappears, the recent chats list remains empty.
DOESN'T WORK!!! 1/5
Can't view any of my messages anymore. Apple has no fix for it yet
Update deleted all the chsts 1/5
Latest update hid or deleted all the ongoing chats. Still see the list on my phone but on computer they are gone and I can't find how to get back.
Recent update doesn't work 1/5
Updated and now cannot see my previous or current chats, or anything at all, really. Sent feedback via the app feedback feature but so far no updates to fix it. It is useless now.
Fails to Perform 1/5
This app continues to decline in performance everytime it upgrades. It's frustrating to not be able to use emjois or see previous messages. As soon as I start a chat with a differnt person, everything disappears with the previous chat unless I remember who I was talking with and re-enter their name. I've scoured preferences and settings to see if there is a new feature that was added - taking way too much of my time. Thinking about switching to an entirely different messaging platform.
It is FREE - Expect NOTHING 2/5
Frequent ' updated ' equals frequently useless APP
This week this works, that does not - the smarter than I developer tries to fix what does not and breaks another once functional feature . . .
Again, it is worth what you pay for it
Terrible executives 1/5
Anyone VP and above here needs a giant paycut for their bad decisions. Leave the engineers who work on app updates employed.
Not Loading Messeges on Mac 1/5
on 14 Mar 2023 messenger uodated. When it restarted none of my previous or new messesges will load. Multiple uninstall and reinstalls. Computer reboots. Still does not work. Looks like the new version does not work on Mac
It never works now.... 2/5
It just wont load new messages and its slow and it quits often, it was nice when it worked but not anymore
By Raj Habib
So annoying. Sometimes doesn't work properly
Right-Click menu missing and useless. 2/5
I've been using Messenger for many years and this latest update to version 175.0 is screwed! There is no right-click menu with which to delete or archive message streams. I have notified Meta twice but they haven't acknowledged my bug reports nor done a thing about the problem.
Typical Meta 2/5
Slow, visually heavy, doubtful usability
Buggy and Unreliable Spyware 1/5
Apple should not allow this sort of spyware on its Store. It constantly drops sign-ins and requires cumbersome authenticating. Go home, Messenger, you're drunk.
Can't delete chats, can't submit feedback 3/5
By Rolls Corey
The most recent version of Facebook Messenger has introduced two new bugs. (1) Right-clicking on a chat no longer brings up a menu including the ability to delete the chat. (2) Unable to submit feedback ... after completing the form and clicking "Submit", just get a spinning progress circle and nothing happens.
Never stops auto-launching 1/5
Apple should ban this from the store because you can't just "turn it off" -- it will continue to turn auto-launch back on over and over. Never mind that should be in Login Items, never mind I shouldn't have to go into UNIX commands to demolish every process until it behaves... This is incredibly creepy and sus activity from one of the most heinous companies on the planet and yet... here it is. The only reason I even installed it is because FB forces you to use it for video -- a completely unneccessary act if you obey basic web standards. But where's the profit in THAT?!
Window auto resizes every time I open app 2/5
By Mykey Massacre
Every time I start up my messenger app the window automatically sets itself to this small size and it's quite annoying.
Bring back the quick access when minimized 2/5
By Shibby_Dude :D
I liked when I minimized and all my chats were on my desktop screen. That was my preferred way of chatting. It seems like a recent update has taken away this feature. Please bring it back!
"Unable To Connect Your Call" 1/5
"Plase connect to a network and try again"
is the message I get every time i try to make a call. Unusable for calls which is very very annoying. I will update my review when the issue is fixed. This is a glaring issue that needs fixing. Please fix ASAP
Right click gone? 1/5
With the new update I can no longer right click and delete a message or ignore it. Please bring this back ASAP!!!
No Chat Bubble Settings 1/5
By Mohammed Nayeem Bhuiyan
When I updated the app, I am not finding the bubble settings and can not open chat heads anymore!
Pretty Much Crap 1/5
Just use the browser app. there is so much wrong with this app
Marking Unread 1/5
They updated and removed the applity to right click and mark things as unread. I use this for customers and this is the WORST to have to go in and find each message on the Mac and then on the iPhone to be able to mark each thread as unread. PLEASE FIX ASAP!
Keeps being broken. 1/5
My favorite feature of Messenger for the slast few months has been the little series of bubbles it would disappear into when I closed the window. Now, that feature is gone.
Random crashes. Features appearing and disappearing. Freezing when uploading or downloadinfg images.
If 90% of peoople I talk to didn't insist on using it, I would stop using messenger and never look back.
Problem After recent update 2/5
After recen update, the desktop messenger bubble is not popping up in my macbook air
Doesn't work 1/5
I tried to download this about 6 months ago and it didnt work. I redownloaded it again today hoping that they had fixed whatever was wrong with it. Nope. It sticks at the point where it says "Getting Started" and doesn't go any further. Shocking for such a high profile app.
Won't open. Waste of time. Developer should be embarrased. 1/5
Like other users, I can't even get this app to open, let alone use. How can a company of Meta's size and resources develop an app for one of their core products )one that is has been around for years) and have it perform so poorly? How about you get some of the billions being spent on the metaverse and redirect it to something useful?
Doesn't even update or sync now 1/5
Things were better, but now when I open Messenger on my Mac, things doen't even sync at all. I don't know what you people did to your app but it is 100% broken. Guess it was eaten by the Metaverse. I can't have chats at all now, though Messenger on my iPhone is fine.
Broken - Please Fix! 1/5
The 1st day of use it was fine. Next time the "turn off chat bubbles" popup won't go away and most of all i can't send or recieve messages from my family that i just chatted with the day before. Seen others have this same problem. Uninstalled/reinstalled, etc. Still broken. What's up? Please Fix ASAP!!!
Doesn't work 1/5
Stuck in a Getting Started loop
Alert Stuck - Turn off Chat Bubbles 2/5
The "Turn off chat bubbles" prompt is stuck on the screen (pops out from lower left account icon). Tried Changing Settings, LoggingOut/In, Quiting/Restarting, Deleting/Reinstalling, Restarting Mac, No way to close the prompt. Clicking the X does nothing. Please fix this bug!! Make it stop!!
By SAIF FROM BD
it's can't open. MAC m1 AIR
Oops something went wrong 1/5
App doesn't allow you sign in through Facebook via the browser or by credentials - the login button is greyed out. Failure then displays the message, "Oops! Something went wrong signing in. Please try again." But you can't try again... not after what happened last time. I know it's not a credential issue, because I can login in other places.
Creates delay 3/5
It does not send all messages, and does not download all messages, crippling real-time conversation with somebody through this app. Otherwise it is a good app, just it does not work properly.
By moonstar wolf
Broken app 2/5
Using a MacBook 2020 Pro - and if it isn't text, then the app on the laptop doesn't want to send it or fails with sending the item. I don't have this issue on any other Apple products. I submitted a ticket a few months ago, and nothing seems to have happened.
Constantly freezes 2/5
By Inigo Montoya for office
App constantly freezes and does not react to anything. Happens every time few min after launch.
A resource consuming app that strips every processing ability from your machine for the sake of obtaining LITERALLY every category listed in the list of "Data Linked to You" (financial, location, search history, browsing history, sensitive info, helth and fitness, etc.).
If FB messenger isnt absolutey essential to you, pass on this app and find another way to communicate.
can not log into messenger 1/5
mac os ventura new update can not log into messenger and the loading will not stop
Does Not work! 1/5
Wont login on M1 macbook.
"Getting Started" 1/5
By Alphie G
The App Store needs to allow giving no stars!
I have tried several iterations of installing the app. It does not go past "Getting Started" and a spinning wheel. And the support pages are useless!
Messenger Not Working - Shows Continuous "Getting Started" Loop (Dec 12, 2022) 1/5
By HC MacBook Air M2 2022
URGENT FIX NEEDED. I am uable to start the Facebook Messenger on my Macbook Air M2 after 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!
Cannot login 1/5
By Hector Zhao
I can't login, always say my account is temporary unavailable and then I have to do security check on web browser.
Tried 10 times already.
app hangs as soon as it starts 1/5
I am using a macbook pro late 2020 model, and messenger worked until i installed the latest update to my mac. I have ventura 13.0.1 and the current app version for messenger is 169.0. I cant even report a problem with the app because in order to do that, I have to actually be able to get the app to work. ive tried removing and reinstalling several times to no avail.
Language font is not working 1/5
Still, it's been two year, my native font still not displaying correctly. only horizontal half is visible. too many bugs. Everytime update comes, more bugs in.
Please update 1/5
Forever getting started on my mac
