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 really do not understand they separate the two apps... it makes no sense at all.... but, on the other hand, it works pretty good and I like the ability to be able to video call people :)

It's okay, I really only use messenger so I can video chat with my boyfriend. Other than that I guess it's an cool app. I wish you didn't have to have this app to see your messages though.

I hate having another app on my phone just to message someone on facebook. I use it constantly and when I have to exit one app to go to another just to message someone it really a downer.

Why was this made a thing? Just let me message people on the facebook app! If you want to facebook message people though you NEED to download it on your phone unless you are on a computer

Great way to message people through Facebook without having to go to Facebook. I personally hate Facebook other than the messaging capabilities to connect with people I can't really text.

It's easy to use but the only thing I hate about this app is that fact that I need it to message my friends . I wish I could do that threw the fb app instead. it would save me time and space.

I liked fbook messenger better how it use to be. I dislike that I have to have to apps for Facebook. I don't get the point... Why not just text then.. Put it back to how it use to be!!

This is an okay app. All of the group replies drove me crazy until I figured out how to turn it off. It's really just one more distraction on my phone that I'd rather not deal with!

I know a lot of people hate on this app, but I was an early adopter and I've come to really love it. In fact, I use this app more often than I do texting when messaging my BFF. And since I have it connected to my contact list in my phone, if I'm having trouble reaching someone, I can always go and see if they're online and message them that way, especially in case of emergencies

I'm a huge fan of the stickers and GIF buttons that I can insert, although I do wish that both displayed much smaller like in normal texting and didn't take up the entire screen.

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