It is incredibly annoying to have this app separate from the actual Facebook app, especially since the Facebook app has notifications for messages that force open the messenger app. It is nice to have different stickers to send.

The app is functional, it just sucks to be forced into downloading something so unneccessary, but zuckerberg clearly doesn't care about our limited storage in smartphones.

This is very helpful for me especially if I have to leave the house in the middle of a facebook conversation. I like that I can continue chatting in a user friendly format and still have my messages saved on my facebook account.

It is useful to have access to your contacts inmedianto, I do not like that you look practically forced to download it to your phone. Could include them more emoticons.

The requirements & access allowances for this app are super invasive and seemingly unnecessary. I will not download it again, and almost feel like the short time I had it when it originally released gave my phone problems.

The app works great and doesn't lag for me but I think it was useless for it to be your only choice to check facebook messages. They should have left it the way it was.

I don't really understand the point of it when I can just use the facebook app. It is nice that you can see when the other person is typing, and how fast it works though. It works a lot faster than texting from my android.

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