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...

Not a fan of messenger. Not sure why Facebook had to make the change. The circle that pops on your phone screen I find very annoying. Hard to use when you're writing a longer message

Not a fan of this app and the permissions you have to grant in order to download. Whether or not they actually take advantage of the permissions, I refuse to download out of principle.

Love this app! I have had no issues with privacy or hacking of my phone. I do not understand why people are so nervous about it. There are gaming apps that are more invasive.

I think it's nice to have your messages on an app and than Facebook. But I think it's kinda stupid as well because it makes you download the app or you can't message people.

I do not like that you have to download a separate app. Random people can message you. And you don't know them. Like a massive text that would not stop. So I uninstalled it.

The messenger is OK but i hate having to have a separate app to see my Facebook messages. Its a waste of space on my phone when it used to be all on the Facebook app.

I like the messenger app because it supports gifs, you can make calls,and it's have a huge inventory of fun stickers. You can even send money through the app now.

I do not really care for this app. It seems clunky and loads slowly on my devices. I would prefer not needing two applications to complete the functions of one.

Oh man this app. Some days I love it and other days I want to scream. Can't even count how many times I've had to uninstall and reinstall to deal with an issue.

Is anyone else upset about the picture setting that automatically sends your picture without giving you a chance to review it?

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