    I don't know when this became a thing, but I should've found it sooner. It literally fixes every problem I had with the original messenger app, which was mainly just being too slow. This one's definitely not as featured of course, but runs WAY better. I like it better than the original to be honest. Mostly the same functions except less than 1/10 the size and RAM it takes up. 5 stars all the way Full Review

    It would've been 5 stars if you fixed this bug. It keeps showing me that I have a message when I actually dont. After clicking it, it shows no new message. Not even in filtered message or message request. After few seconds or minutes, it will notify me again showing nothing Full Review

    The only Facebook app I will rate. Just because it doesn't have all the bullsh*t features. I just want an app that does messaging and no stickers, games, etc. At least Facebook got something kinda right here! Now just make the Facebook app no battery hog :) Full Review

    I like it... Really don't like all the bloated features that were added to Facebook over the years. I miss the days when messenger was packaged in with the Facebook app. Can we also get a slimmer version of the Facebook app? Wow, I just uninstalled the main version of Facebook messenger... Aannd all of the sudden my phone is running much faster.... Full Review

    Excellent idea and sorely needed; normal Messenger was always big, bloated with features and constantly slowing down my phone (I have a Pixel and even that was slowed down). It's a little ugly compared to some other messaging apps but if you don't use Messenger a lot it's fine. Full Review

    Craps all over regular messenger. Stripped back to the only thing I actually use messenger for - sending messages. Thanks for doing this for those of us who don't want all the other stuff! Full Review

    It's great how much smaller it is and with all the ram it saves but it's really bare bones. Lacking features. No gif support, no customization options, Seriously I think everyone in the world is sick of that shade of blue. Full Review

    I use this app only because it doesn't have all the annoying features that the main messenger app has. I don't like stories and all the other bad features that got added. Full Review

    Ever since the update my messages have been delayed or not received. I get them on the fb lite app but not on the mmsgr lite app. I have to keep clearing my apps to reset it to get it to work again. Full Review

    Great straight up messenger app. I hate the standard messenger app with a passion, it's sooooo bad. But this one strips all the dumb stuff nobody uses anyway and just makes it a great simple messenger. Really good! Full Review

    Does not drain battery as the much as the full version. But it is just a slimed app that always ask for you to install the full version. I just use this because I don't want the full version! Stop asking that stupid question. Full Review

    So glad I can do away with all the useless junk from the main Messenger app. Some features missing I'd like added is custom notification sound, showing that the other person in the conversation is typing, and the coloured ticks instead of the words sent/delivered/seen. Inserting emoji through Gboard results in a box on the receivers end. Sadly there's no "what's new" when there's an update. Full Review

    This is how the regular messenger should be, and everyone should switch over immediately. That said, this app doesn't use runtime permissions, which is not acceptable practices. It requests all the permissions, and requires none of them to function. Absolutely preposterous. Only saving grace is the permissions can be disabled manually. Full Review

    Obviously much better than the full app that is that bloated it kills ur phone...BUT...and it's a BIG BUT, why is it not compatible with older devices...you know, the ones that could really benefit from the slimmed down app. No, the brains at FB make the full blown version compatible while the lite only works on the majority of devices that don't need it! Do they have common sense in California? Full Review

    Absolutely brilliant. Just like messenger but with ought all the unnecessary stuff that gets annoying. The only thing I miss is having the bubble thing on screen to click on. But it doesn't take away from the app. It's brilliant. Full Review

    Stopped working entirely 9 days ago. No messages sent or received. Updated today, the new version gets stuck at "Loading messages". Edit: fixed it by deleting all app data and relogin. Now all my contacts are spammed with "just joined Messenger" messages. Full Review

    I can't believe how much faster it is than regular messenger. Battery life and phone performance has noticeably improved too. Had no idea the original was so bloated. Full Review

    I love this so much. I left a review on the original messenger a while ago after the updates adding unnecessary games and "my day" snapchat ripoff stuff saying that if Messenger was turning into a space hogging snapchat gaming app, I wanted a lite version, and I have it now and love it. I am missing the chat head that can open over other apps, and I wouldn't mind being able to set nicknames and chat colors, but being free of all the unnecessary buttons is much more pleasant than I even imagined...and I imagined it a lot. Thank you for making this app! Full Review

    Stars for the slimmed down app. Reduction of stars for lack of a dark theme. For a company which seems to know everything there is about everyone in the FB ecosystem, you seem clueless to understand how many of us want a darker theme so we don't burn out our retinas if we need to send a message at zero-dark-30. Get a clue! I think I'll Uninstaller and wait for an available dark theme. Full Review

    When I receive messages, I'm getting a notification in the Facebook app, but not in messenger lite. It's as if it doesn't recognize that I have the messenger app installed at all. Clicking the notification takes me to a browser page that asks me to install Messenger. I have notifications enabled in messenger lite, but still no luck. Full Review

    Should have the option to use messenger without having facebook just like the original messenger app has. Was a little upset I downloaded for nothing. I hate facebook but love messenger. Please fix. Full Review

    Kir Jenko Published date: October 16, 2017

    The idea is there, simple, fast, no nonsense, I love it. But personally I think they've removed too many features for a "good, reliable" app. You should add back the "archive message" option as it helps myself and many others quickly organise their messages. You should also add the option to switch your "active now" status. And also add a option for chat heads as that's one of the beat features of the original messenger app, and if people don't like it, then a option to turn it off/on too. Full Review

    I like how it doesn't drain the battery and it doesn't hog the memory. This is almost perfect for me: faster, no unnecessary stuff (games, etc.), no chat heads. BUT i really NEED the video chat feature. Until that feature is added, I'll give it a four star review and will stick to the full version :( Full Review

    Like the light weight elements. Primary reason I switched back to full messenger is the lack of video calls. One other annoyance that I would have lived with was the lack of emojis on individual comments. Full Review

    Sriju Guptha Published date: October 10, 2017

    I think in person it should show complete list of active users online... then if possible chat heads can be added. Also whenever yu get a incomming call, app doesnt show the name/photo of the caller. Full Review

    Much better then the full version. Love not having all that useless stuff sucking my phone's resources. I do wish that the lite version would support bitmoji and gifs though. Every basic messaging app does that. Just don't want all the non messengering stuff. Full Review

    I badly want to see stickers gets sync all across devices and apps (facebook and messenger) that have been logged in. Today each device needed to setup stickers separately which is uncomfortable to use. Full Review

    Without all the features that the real one has, it's so much smaller. Only 6 Mb, so I don't have to worry about space. Good idea! Full Review

    This has gotten a 1 star, for one, I installed this app to try it out, I attempted to login with my credentials and now it's has locked me out of my account and now once again due to unusual activity, I have to upload a photo once again to prove myself and have to wait till who knows when it will get unlocked. The your gonna want my photo ID and such. I've sent you my photo, I will change my review if my account can be unlocked less than 8 hours. Full Review

    So far so good and the ability to decouple from Facebook lite by deselecting in Facebooj Lite settings is great Gives the choice of what to use for messaging. As long as the app continues to work properly, use low resources and stays efficient and bloat free. Keep it simple. All the app needs is the ability to message, call and video call. No need for anything else. The main app can be used for those that are happy with the other bloat. Works well on Android 2.3.6. and lower spec phones, which is good for those who can't afford to upgrade and have to make do. Full Review
