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...

This app is so spotty. It always will shut off randomly on my phone. It's not very reliable. I love using the stickers! I just wish this app didn't always crash.
Worst app ever! Seriously, this is the most useless app I have on my phone! It doesn't even let me send a message. It says "sorry your session has been expired"
I hate that you can't access Facebook messages on your phone without this app now. I have also heard of a lot of privacy issues with this app as well. HORRIBLE.
I like messanger, but texting is way better. If you cant get a hold of someone, the best way is to use the messanger in case you don't have them in your contacts.
I was fine with it when they separated messenger and facebook. I connect with people through facebook so messenger is a must for me. I love all the stickers, and the functionality of this app is great.
I can't stand the messenger app. I hardly message anybody on facebook anymore, since you HAVE to have the messenger app. It just takes up space and memory on my phone. It's so stupid.
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 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.
