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...

I like having messenger cause its a lot faster to get msgs from people but I do hate having 2 apps for the same thing. It shows you can make calls but you may get charged. Its faster and easier to send videos then texting also.

I enjoy the app itself, but I'm disappointed that Facebook would only let you message friends on your phone if you had this app. It's annoying to keep switching apps. I do like that this app keeps group messages organized.

A lot of people don't like this app and I'm not sure why. Yes, it can be slightly annoying to go from one app to the other (FB to Messanger), but it's really useful to keep track on conversations and it's an alternative to texting. Very useful when reaching out to FB friends and you don't have their number.

I don't like having a separate app for my messages. i also don't like the lack of privacy through the user agreement. It's sketchy but since I have to to have app to view the messages on my phone and ipad i have no choice.

The best way to communicate with people over Facebook. The only thing I don't like is that to use all of facebook's capabilities, you have to switch between two apps.

I was pleasantly surprised with this app. At first I was not looking forward to having a separate app for messaging on Facebook, but it comes in handy when you need to use an app and have a chat head open for convenience.

I don't really understand this. I feel like if you already have the Facebook app why do you need another one just for messaging? Its kind of pointless to me and I prefer just looking at the Facebook app to read my messages.

I wish there was an easier way to delete a whole bunch of conversations at once, rather than one conversation at a time. Other than that, the app isn't terrible. I just with it was combined with Facebook to make one app.

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