    It happens a while ago after i updated this app, when i'm trying to forward a picture to some of my friends but it seems that the picture did not pop up on our conversation and i try so many times just to send the picture to my friends. Please make a way to resolve this issue. Afterall this app is very quiet useful and effective when making a conversation to the people you want to talk to even though he's far from you. Full Review

    App is currently having problems on my phone. It will close after I click a chat bubble. I have updated it, uninstalled it, reinstalled it and still does it.. please fix this issue. I have to reopen the chat bubbles at least 5 times before I can even send a message back to the person messaging me. I would give a better review if it wasn't for this problem with the app.... It only started after it updated and now continues to do it .... Full Review

    I love messenger. It's almost my only form of communication. But WHY can't I view people's "days" anymore? Or have the fun filters? I have updated my apps. And my phone is an LG Stylo 3. Completely up to date. (Had the same issue with my Samsung Galaxy S4, so I don't believe it's a phone issue). Please fix these bugs. Thank you. Full Review

    1.Please let us send pdf files in the chats. This will be very helpful. 2. Also there is no way to mark a msg or an image in the chat ,as an important one. Some time we need perticular msg to see it again. But due to lot of new msgs it is hard to find. Please update this. Please .. I am waiting for this for a long time Full Review

    UPDATE: Not sure what's going on but it constantly glitches and forces close. 3/23/2017: This new update is the worst yet! Way too many things that are not needed and the constant notifications that I have something unread or new when it's my own message or something that was read by me hours ago is frustrating. I don't use Facebook and just messenger so all this other stuff is useless to me at least. Full Review

    Brent I Published date: October 11, 2017

    This app absolutely stinks. Many times, I don't receive messages or notifications when someone sends me a message or picture. It is useless. When I send someone a message, they sometimes don't get it or even see that I sent it. It won't even show received or delivered to them on my end. This app needs a lot of work and updates with reliability, notifications, and messaging. Update 10/17-I hear the notification ding and messages aren't appearing. It still does not work right. Fix it!Not user friendly at all and doesn't work right. Time to uninstall this garbage. Just like facebook-never works right. Full Review

    Honestly the app is good for keeping in contact. But the issue is it keeps shutting down at random. I cant do anything like i like to play the games with friends and those glitch out and cant be used its irritating i just wanna talk to people and play games without it shutting down all the damn time -_- Full Review

    So I continuously have to uninstall this app every week because it crashes. Most people use their messenger app so I always talk on there. But it just keeps messing up. I'll click on the app, the screen goes white and the app will get stuck. I exit out the app and then try again. The app just sits there like I never pushed it. I don't understand what's going on. None of my other apps do this. Not even the facebook app. Please fix this, I actually do love messenger. I just hate having to constantly uninstall to use. Full Review

    This app does not work, I've had it on LG and Samsung and all it does is show that it is loading and loading. Messages do not show up or notify me, updates do not change anything. The only way I can access the messages is to go to chrome, desktop version, and see the messages before the notice will go away on the Facebook app itself, the bubble feature does not work and I can not see all my messages, even recent ones do not come up it just gives me an error message Full Review

    1) Provide a decent changelog. 2) Add option to hide "My day". 3) Add option to opt out from various gifs etc, many of us find them irritating and unnecessary! 4) Add option to send file. We can only do that through desktop. Thank you! Update: I rated up 1 star cause finally you fixed the video player! Full Review

    I've had to uninstall and reinstall this app twice in the past week. It won't connect to my wifi half the time and it won't show messages when they come in till like a day later. Not sure on why I'm having problems with this app and my Facebook app. But it's getting annoying. Can you please fix this issue? Full Review

    The new update ruined it for us. Everytime I open the app, it wants to go the camera. Not everyone wants to share what they are doing at every minute of the day, we already have the fb app for that!!! Today section is annoying and irritating! The old version where we get to choose when to send pics is better. Full Review

    Audio messages stop when changing active app even though messenger is still open and the other app isn't using audio. Been an issue forever. Other than that it's a Facebook app so I naturally distrust it and expect it's being used to sell my personal information for a profit. Also the stickers and other add ons are more or less useless.

    Messager used to work fine for me. A great way for my drug dealing homeless friends to communicate without a working phone. But in the last couple weeks all it does is crash! Legit it let's me send 1 message then freezes then crashes I have to force quit it and go back on to send something else and it crashes again. It's annoying af get back on your game Facebook your embarrassing yourself. Full Review

    Full of bloated features like my day. Forced to use it where I'd prefer to use the website. Why? Edit app getting bigger and bigger. Full of useless bloat. Is there any chance of a lite version with just the messenger part or have Facebook stopped listening to their users. What a pile!! Full Review

    They inserted in my contact list a banner for favorites now. It is interrupting my list and I cannot remove it. Update: I accidentally updated and now my 7" screen is full of gadgets I hardly will use. I'm thinking of changing to another, more simpler messenger. The message request is coming up although I set it to hide. Full Review

    Why won't it update??? I mean I always update it but it won't work. Why??? It has come to my attention that it is based on the account and the cause is that I didn't update it for a long time. I already uninstalling it then installing it again but it still didn't work! I already tried lots of time but I still failed! Please fix it! I can't see "My Day(s)" and Games unless it's in a group chat.. But please fix it! Full Review

    Constant updates that do nothing but use my memory. It's not even a great messenger app. Too big, too memory hungry and TOO MANY UPDATES! Strongly suspect this app mines more data than just your contacts 🤔 UNINSTALLED AND USING WHATSAPP. Sinister app Full Review

    I never liked the fact that it is now a completely separate app from Facebook. It requires too many permissions, and lately has been force closing. Very annoying. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and it still never actually closes. It's always running in the background. I will not use anymore if these issues are not fixed soon. Full Review

    I don't know what is going on with messenger lately, but it has stopped working correctly in any fashion. Messages won't pop up for me until I open the app manually, even if it's running in the background on my phone. It freaks out sometimes and freezes or doesn't send messages. It says I'm online when I'm not. The quality of messenger has gotten so much worse. Find another messaging app Full Review

    I deleted the facebook app and messenger app because I hated how much I was on it. I was only accessing facebook through the internet browser and all was well(besides the annoying pop up to install messenger whenever I looked at messages) but now it won't even let me access my facebook messages without this app. Sorry I don't want to be a facebook zombie. Livid. Full Review

    Edit: -2 stars for introducing extremely irritating, repetitive and annoying ads in the contact list. For a year or so my basic messaging app. I take one star back for constantly trying to steal contacts from the phone, force you to add your phone number and invite more people + accidental calls due to unfortunate call button location.

    I got the app as another way of communication from Facebook. It stopped working today and I have no clue why. I don't know if there's an issue with it or its acting up with my phone. It keeps cutting me off it. It started doing it around 4-5pm eastern time. Full Review

    It use to be a wonderful app. You had games that I could play by myself, like HEX FRVR and BINGO. There was no timer and didn't have to pick someone else to play. Now I can't enjoy them! Why did you have to mess up this app? I'm a senior citizen that struggles with technology anyway and you had to go and change the few things that I had figured out. Seriously considering deleting app. 1 UNHAPPY CUSTOMER Full Review

    First of all I am forced to use this to get messages. It has to be updated every week and I have to go through 3 steps from facebook. 1. Click on messenger icon, 2. click to use messenger 3. Open messenger. Also, people that don't have messenger are not getting my message. I have deleted it twice because it drives me and HAD to download again to get messages. I hate messenger. It's now August 11 and I have had to update messenger 3 times. How is this faster???!! A year later still using. I like messenger, but WHY do I have to update it every other day? Its very annoying and inconvenient. Full Review
