    the calling feature sucks! most of the time I can't hear and it drops the connection very easily... Plus my phone crahes now that i have the app. I really dont like it but cant message otherwise. Other than that its ok. Lots of room for improvements especially now that its required for fb app users. Now it keeps freezing Full Review

    This is dumb. Why take away a feature the browser was perfecetly capable.of doing on its own. And replace it with software that not only takes up space but also updates constantly thus taking up even more space. What are they even updating? Just adding more spyware more likely. Fedbook.

    Stop changing what already works. I don't need messenger to tell me who my favorites are. I don't need a special section with who is active right now. I don't need 100000 notifications for birthdays. And the most annoying part - I cannot permanently hide those sections. "section might reappear when there's something new" What is that? And now Messenger Day? This is not Snapchat. Full Review

    It's annoying that we have to have this separate app for messaging now but it's not too bad. My biggest complaint is that the app doesn't alert you when you have a new message request until you open it. If they will fix that I'll toss 5 stars out there for it. Full Review

    Crashing Often: Most of the times I'm trying to open this app, it crashes and says "Unfortunately, messenger has stopped".Many times I'm trying to open it from Facebook App it doesn't open. This is very annoying cause I can't use it as often as I need it. I'm expecting a positive response and please solve this issue ASAP. Full Review

    Works nicely, clear sound quality, does a nice job. Only con is it eats the battery like crazy. I love the chat heads feature, but had to turn it off. (Brand new phone, lasts a day and a half, and with chat heads almost dead in about 6 hours) Full Review

    Honestly speaking, I love this app because my closest loved ones are on it. My only issue is that the "typing" three dots are gone and now when I type the other person sends the messages as I do and it's very frustrating PLEASE bring back the 3 dots typing notification please and this app is easily a 5 star app 😃 Full Review

    First they had the stupid prompt every time you end a call asking for it to be related, now they ask if you want to call another person, you wasted money to program that? If I'm driving it's not legal for me to answer your stupid prompts but it pops up on top of my GPS every time! Full Review

    Very bad. Striker shows in my gallery in different folder. That's why it becomes a huge problem to find normal photos & videos saved in my phone. Please hide the stickers from gallery. App size 48 MB...! Plz reduce it. Add some Bengali sticker also. Full Review

    Avery Fang Published date: October 18, 2017

    Only reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is the video quality is always low or choppy, and the frequent needed updates stop people from receiving my messeges. Have to text friends a pic of what I tried to send on messenger, and it leaves us all confused until I find out it's a random update. Thank you for updating, but keep it working even if it's a day behind in the new uldates. Or at least give us a heads up via messenge or notification that we need to update. I'm getting tired of this back and forth messeges not making it to the people I'm talking to. Full Review

    Renders phone unusable during (very frequent) updates. App crashes after typing more than ~140 characters in a single message, which means you have to retype your entire message. Better switch to signal or telegram. Full Review

    Loved this app all this while, until I came across two faults which is really a big turn off. First, my camera cannot be accessed from the app. There's a error display. Secondly, I cannot have secret conversations with anyone. There's a error when I send in a message. Please do sort these out. It's really been bothering me for sometime now. Full Review

    Messenger has outdone itself, it can work withput facebook and thsts something we can all get behind. I use metal instead of facebook and messenger seems to flawlessly blend in. Only one drawback is the icon or logo which lacks any imagination and ruins the amazing themes people are using, who wants demon skulls and blood with a big blue speech bubble icon? Could be a tiny skull that starts in the center of the screen and zooms in tp be the whole screen and with animated mouth could say"your soul has been summond " or something better but you get the idea Full Review

    The Messenger App is getting as bad as the Facebook App with malfunctions, it'll stop working or freeze up and it is slow to install during updates which takes ten to fifteen minutes on average. Whoever designed and maintains the Messenger and Facebook Applications appearently doesn't care to fix the issues with both Apps or doesn't know how and should be fired and replaced with someone who's older than a toddler and knows how to design and maintain Apps and I'm at the point of uninstalling both applications. More people use Messenger than texting these days so you'd think they'd keep the App functioning properly. The Messenger and Facebook Apps are a waste of space in any device and aren't worth one star but I'll give it the following icons it deserves. 😞😞😞, 👎👎👎,💩💩💩. Full Review

    This app is literally so buggy, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't...I tried sending a message ten hours ago that didn't send for some stupid reason, and when it didn't send, the stupid app didn't even give me a notification to let me know! There's probably a thousand apps out there that do the same thing as this and work better, come on step up your game. Full Review

    Use messenger for pretty much texting everyone and usually don't have any issues. But now the messages don't pop up till hours later or lag showing up on an active conversation. Reinstalling to see if it solves it, fed up of constantly having to check the app Full Review

    I use this as my default sms app for the ability to run it over other apps, but God is it buggy. Freezes VERY often, and even fully closing the app multiple times won't work. Messages frequently say "failed to send" when they didn't, which can be very confusing because sometimes they actually don't send. Other features like automatically adding a name to a number if the person's number on face book and the video chat are great, but the bugs can actually be awful Full Review

    It says I can continue to use Messenger after I've deactivated my Facebook account, but my friends can't respond to my messages. They can see my messages but that's it. I have no use for an account but I want to be able to stay in touch with a few people. But this app is completely useless without a Facebook account. So it lies when it says you can use it when your account is deactivated. Full Review

    The app itself isn't bad. It's a great app. HOWEVER every single update screws up my phone. It never updates and when it finally does, to get this app on my SD card since it's so big, I have to uninstall it and re-download it every time! Fix the issue or stop with the continuing updates!
