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.
Chat heads: Keep the conversation going while you use other apps.
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 gallery photos and videos without leaving the conversation–then choose the perfect ones to send.
Record voice messages when you have more to say.
- 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.
- Create shortcuts to get to any conversation right from your home screen.
- Turn off notifications when you’re working, sleeping or just need a break.
Stay logged in so you never miss a message
Now you can see your call history and missed calls—all in one place.
It works great in every way, except that you can’t send files to other people through messenger. I often use my phone and tablet to work on my papers, and most of the time, I need these to be sent to other people who are easily reached through messenger only. It takes a long time to open facebook mobile in a separate browser just to have that feature on an android device. Please add that feature to the messenger, it would REALLY help and save a lot of time.

I love this app for facebook.I know most of my relatives have facebook, so when my prepaid phone card is up... I can still call them on my facebook messenger using wifi. Its GREAT!! You can leave voice mails or you can send voice recordings instead of texting the out your message!!....feels like a walkie talkie. I LOVE IT! Also its very helpful because you can send gifs and pictures without data charges if your service requires extra charges for picture messages. Facebook also has allot of online sales and instead of giving your phone number out...you can contact strangers on facebook messenger and you can see if they have recieved your messages. There is also this cool thing where if your in the same area as your friends, messenger sends you a notification letting you know your friend is close by so you dont miss them if they are in town. Allot of great features with this. Love it
Messenger is very Good 4 messages that are private. Plenty of Stickers. I Love that Messenger has added more floating flowers plus many other stickers, TY. (I Do Enjoy Using these often. So much so, that One emoji in Particular noted on Swiftkey, has That Emoji stated as my "Signature" emoji! I Love "💝" daardie!) Please Fix the on and off button as It's Way to close to send! Overall I like your New changes, features and GIF/Emoji, ens. Bar! Would you consider to Please move Send buttons and Camera. Fix please this AND SEND Verification CODES PLEASE...(as I'm Not getting them and Idky) Tips on this I could use help with, or email me back on this, with the fix or what you're doing to correct this. Thank you!
Giving a review because I want to give feedback to FB on something that annoys me about the app. I really hate how it always has faulty notification badges. I think it's for their Snapchatesque story feature. I coonstantly have to manually remove those badges. Really wish they'd either get rid of that or give users a way to select what is registered there in those notifications
The app is good for chatting and calling. It lets me know when I have a message. When im logged in everything is great...yet it logs me out about ten times a day. Yes I get that may need to do it from time to time due to security checks etc but constantly throughout the day is becoming annoying to the point where I looked to see if there is an alternative app to be used. If could explain why it does this or even better be resolved, my review would be a 5 as do love it when logged in.
