Instantly reach the people in your life—for free. Messenger is just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan). Not just for Facebook friends: Message people in your phone book and just enter a phone number to add a new contact. Group chats: Create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place. Photos and videos: Shoot videos and snap selfies or other photos right from the app and send them with one tap. Free calls: Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries. (Calls are free over Wi-Fi. Otherwise, standard data charges apply.) Even more ways to message: Bring your conversations to life with stickers. Preview your camera roll photos and videos without leaving the conversation--then choose the perfect ones to send. Record voice messages when you have more to say. Extra features: Know when people have seen your messages. Forward messages or photos to people who weren't in the conversation. Search for people and groups to quickly get back to them. Turn on location to let people know when you're nearby. See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook. Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break. Stay logged in so you never miss a message. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Messenger uses location data to make features work, help people connect and more.

  • Updates are getting worse :(

    By Bishop1234567890
    Guys, you’ve messed the pictures up. They take too long to download now. If I’ve been sent 6 pictures I’m on the phone ages!! Also, in group chat you used to be able to see the NAMES of the people who have viewed the comment. I can only see their icons now, which is no good if you don’t know who’s icon is who’s... please fix it..
  • New Update Freezes Writing

    By JonesFam07
    This latest update makes the app impossible to use. After typing 3-5 words, the typing function freezes and you have to leave the app and come back to get a few extra characters in each time, if it will allow. At times, it is frozen and will not allow. Please fix.
  • Keyboard bug

    By marnrw
    Every time I type the keyboard will randomly become unresponsive - the only thing I can do is send the message which results in twenty messages trying to get one sentence across. Have had to switch to whatsapp. Please can this be fixed 😭
  • Stop Tracking our Privacy

    By Yeasin babu
    We love Facebook every sort of way but you guys can’t make us bound to let you use our privacy for your business. We don’t want Facebook messenger mandatory to use with Facebook. Let us trust you.
  • Not able to type message

    By mgela80
    Hi, I’m not able to type messages continuously. I have to close the app after 2 words and then I can do it but some friends have the same problem. Tried to restart my phone too but it didn’t help.
  • Update flaws

    By MikeysaysYes
    Since doing the new update, suddenly messenger is only capable of typing 4 words before randomly stopping me from typing any more, then I need to click off the chat, go back on..right another 4 words click off and on and keep repeating this till I’ve finished the message....worked fine before I updated it....tip: don’t make an update to fix a bug to then bring a new one with it👎👎👎
