    Great! The whole country uses messenger actually, but I suggest an option to pin chats, or even pinning some messages. This is because everyone does use it here, so we even use it for work, and the number of chats can be overwhelming. The pinning option would help for prioritizing certain group chats and even certain important messages. Thanks! Really wish this could happen, cuz it would REALLY help 😁 Full Review

    Newest update wont let me send photo. Samsung j7 Update: 8/16/17 Still waiting for the latest version because I still can't send photos. I downloaded the lite version instead because I really need to send photos. That solved the problem for now but lite version doesn't have lots of features which sucks. I hope FB fix the bug soon. Update 8/17/17 The latest update fixed the problem! Thank you FB team! Full Review

    Always changing the menus, that's fine... But WHY THE HELL CAN'T YOU SET ANY EMOJI OR ANY COLOR FOR CHATS???!!! Also why are we being forced to use stickers????!!! Stop forcing the Facebook sticker cancer on us please!!!! Also why is the camera from chat (as upposed to from main screen) use different text and design? Why not just use the same camera design, the better one hopefully... Full Review

    The last version I updated it to doesn't let me see my messagees AT ALL! The chat heads don't even pop out, not even the notifications of me getting a message. I've tried turning on & off my phone several times. Also uninstalled it twice and reinstalled it and I keep getting the same problem. It's just on constant "refresh". . PLEASE FIX THIS! Full Review

    Unfortunately my family use messenger so I have to as well. The latest update has made messenger even more glitchy and regularly freezes. I'm seriously considering removing messenger altogether and contacting my family through he Facebook mobile website. Why do companies always have to break what's already working?? Full Review

    It's nice that I can stay connected in my conversations while I'm on the other apps using the chat heads. I just get irritated with the "my day feature" and also whenever I swipe the phone sometimes I accidentally swipe right then the camera feature goes on. I hope there would be an update that I could actually turn off some features that I dislike. I just wanted to use messenger for chat and calls, nothing else. UPDATE: I can't see the art and effects on the latest update. Full Review

    It's good app and can't contact people on Facebook without it. However, my phone made me uninstall it as it kept stopping and was making my phone stop. I always had pop up messages saying that messenger had stopped working. Why is this happening? I need the app otherwise the Facebook app is pointless when it comes to talking to people 😕😠 also it has been saying that I am active when I am not even on the app or on Facebook. Please fix this as it makes people think I am ignoring them when I am not. Full Review

    In a very recent update, messenger has lost the ability to share audio files. Last week I could go into voice recorder, long press -> share -> messenger, and send any audio I had recorded to anyone—but not anymore. This is very obnoxious. As a musician, I appreciated the ability to send sketches and ideas to friends without having to boot my laptop. Please return this functionality! Full Review

    Fails to open and asks you to wait or close and never opens. Multiple in/installs works once or twice then same again. Worst app along with Facebook for not working. No problems with any others on my phone. Same problems across multiple releases. Full Review

    New update has made it laggy and has made deleting messages and marking messages as read impossible. UPDATE: fixed prvious issue. Now new update means that theres a bar across my chats that says "add something to your day" which i hate! Its getting in the way of reading messages and i cant get rid of it, its very annoying! Im never going to use the my day feature so get rid of this bar please and keep that silly bubble/chat head that is just for the my day feature away too! Its so annoying and unneeded!!! Full Review

    This is just getting worse and worse. If you could just have options in sections, so messages stay as just a column of messages, active stay as a column of just that and so on. Completely pointless and infuriating having 3 different ways to see who's online. Absolutely stupid in my eyes and it just seems like another useless update, yet again. Full Review

    Can't open soundcloud link in messenger. App redirects automatically to google Play Store instead of soundcloud app. Been having this issue for at least 6 months or so. I personally use One Plus 3 phone but I know that the problem is not in my phone because my friends has the same issue on their IPhone or other android phones Full Review

    Originally Messenger was great for video and voice call. Recently it has been causing my Wi-Fi to go blank. I've tested it on other Wi-Fi networks and it's done the same, or slowed the connection. It wasn't just this device, but all that were connected. Please fix this. It's become HORRIBLE. Full Review

    I am not a fan of Facebook in general, but since it happens to be the only way to contact my family (regrettably), it is even more frustrating to HAVE to download this laggy, awful app in order to even SEE my messages. Too many requirements for a base application to function properly, which it doesn't even do! Full Review

    Hopefully soon there is log out on messenger and turn off the online status for the purpose that no one see that your online or can select a person to turn off the online status but still can receive message. Especially group vid call. Some times i dont want to be disturb from any calls when watching on my phone. I get disturb when someone call. I dont want to use the block option it might be miss understood by the person who is calling. Full Review

    I wish they would remove that useless circle at the bottom. Its a text app not a picture app. And on top of that when I want to really take a picture the app isnt even able to do it properly. So its irritating and useless remove it or move that circle elsewhere. I remember I was in the toilet when I clicked on that stupidly placed button. Full Review

    Tries to be a relevant standalone messenger, but you can't even search through chats to find eg a required link from months ago. Must manually scroll to try and find it. Months since my last review and still the app updates multiple times every week with zero notable changes. Sad that we're forced to use it. Full Review

    LG k20 plus. There's an issue when I open chat heads that the chat displays previous messages requiring me to scroll down to the current messages almost every time I open a chat head. If I minimize and re-open it, it opens to the current messages but I find that it regularly opens on the wrong spot frustrating. It would also be nice to be able to disable the "days" feature Full Review

    Takes up too much memory on your phone. Not a big fan. Plus i dont get you have to have This On your phone just to able to read your Facebook messages. I think you guys are in the wrong for making us download this just to be able to see our message. You guys need to come up with a new way to see our messages without having to use this. Thank you😊 Full Review

    The app is getting more bloated and laggy than ever. If only Facebook would make the Lite versions available for those of us that want to save battery life and remove the lag from our phones... or at least let us access messenger from Chrome on our phones. I'm about ready to ditch facebook so I can actually use my phone. Full Review
