Instantly reach the people you care about. Messenger is a fast, free and reliable way to stay in touch. It's just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan). Features: Get to your messages without opening Facebook. Bring your conversations to life with stickers. Send photos privately. Have group conversations and make plans on the go. Text your phone contacts, even if you're not Facebook friends. Share your location so people know when you're nearby. Record voice messages. Make free calls, even to friends in other countries. Know when people have seen your messages. See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook. Stay logged in so you never miss a message. Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break. see more...

It's an okay feature of Facebook. Not my favorite. I hate how Facebook forces you to have it in order to talk to your friends. It should be an option. Mine occasionally freezes up or closes out in the middle of a conversation. But I do enjoy the calling and video chat features very much.

I've never downloaded the app because I find it very inconvenient to have to download a separate Facebook App just to get my messages. I usually just check them from my mobile internet or from my laptop. Plus I don't trust all the negative feed back from the permissions from this app.

I love this app! It works really really well! Eveeyrhinf gets sent fast which is a very good improvement compared to the regular messenger on the Facebook app. I really enjoy using it! And it easy to find old convos

The Messenger app works fine and is a great way to keep in touch with friends using data or wifi, but I really don't understand why they needed to make an entirely new app separate from the Facebook app. It just seems extensive for one feature; they did the same thing with Facebook Pages.

I like how you can have a chat "pop out" of the app and notify you when someone talks to you. However, it sometimes doesn't and it's slow to deliver the messages. I also don't like that it installs a new app on top of the existing Facebook app that eats up even more of my memory.

This app is amazing for when I can't use my texting app when my data is out and it has so many cool settings and stuff like it has emojis images and you can reset colors and I just think it's really fun to play around with and the video chat and call are also amazing quality

I hate this. i do not understand why this is existing right now. i think its cool if you have an option to use it or not, but we are pretty much FORCED into having this app, and it kind of makes you question if facebook is based in america or not. lmao...yes , i did just say that.

I honestly didn't like the idea of having the messenger as a completely different app, but it's not the worst thing ever. One thing I love is being able to call with WiFi, so I'm able to connect with family in other countries. Very easy app to use, I've never had a problem.

Great app for keeping all your Facebook messages however I would give it more stars if Facebook just incorporated it into the Facebook app itself. Having a whole seprate app just for messages is a bit annoying and uses more space on my device that could be used for other apps.

Do you think Facebook will go back to just chat without messenger? Or Will they change it again somehow?
