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...

The messenger app works great.. I just don't like how Facebook is practically forcing everyone to get it if they want to see their messages.

This app works fine, but I don't see a reason for having separate apps for facebook and its messenger. It takes up space that I barely have.

I don't understand why messenger has to have a separate app. I like Messenger itself, especially the stickers, but I hate that it's separate.

I don' t think they should have made an app for this. I don't dislike the app but I think they should have kept it within the facebook app.

I like Facebook messenger and I haven't had any problems using g it. Although, I wish it didn't take you off of the Facebook page to use it.

I don't like that when I'm on my phone I can't see my messages because I have to download this app! Who has the memory for that nowadays?!

It's handy, but I don't like the way that when I try to access my fb messenger messages within the fb iPhone app, it takes me out of fb.

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