    "share your day" feature is ruining this previously wonderful app. Now its too busy, cluttered, and I'm accidentally hitting the camera button which has no business being on the main screen. Messenger is great for messaging and for sharing images, etc. If I wanted snapchat functionality, I would install snapchat. If you want to create a snapchat competitor, feel free to do so in another app, and don't force it on us inside messenger. Now we have to see ads in messenger as well as facebook? Great...

    Please add a setting where users can choose whether to show or not my day from other people in the app. Seriously, not all people likes to see the my day in the top part of the app, and I'm one of them. Please add such setting. Please (04/29/2017) Okay i think the idea of having my day its own bubble is good. But please have a setting where we can choose either to show or not the bubble for my day. Pleaseeeee Full Review

    Where in this app can I make myself appear offline? No one needs to know that I was "active 5 minutes ago". The app also tells people I was active when I WAS NOT. So when I don't feel like replying to someone, I can't even touch my phone or Messenger will assume I'm active and tell the dang whole world. Serioulsy considering uninstalling. Then everyone can piss off with their Messenger-aided stalking. Full Review

    Can't make or receive calls on Android with Bluetooth enabled. I like this app for messaging. However I've been very frustrated lately because I have an Android and I don't like to turn my Bluetooth feature off. I used to have no problem but recent updates no longer allow you to make or receive voice or video calls on Android if you have Bluetooth enabled. Fix this issue and make it good again. Full Review

    Need to have word search in the chats and the other chat box shown all the time. Need to make video stays on when not in the vid call screen or using other apps. Pic is flipped. Keeps logging me out. Can't see when the other users read the msg. Sometimes the msg or the person doesn't show in the app. The msg is late to receive. Need to slow emoji in reply in notification tab Full Review

    Video quality is ok.... I don't have FaceTime anymore so I tried Facebook messager to video chat with my husband. I think we're going to try Skype or something because Messager has sound issues. I can barely hear him and he can barely hear me when we're screaming at each other over the phone. Full Review

    I hate it. I use Chrome on my Samsung tablet because of Safe Mode and whenever I click the icon message, it always tells me to go to messenger. Hey, Safe Mode doesn't let you use third party apps. Thanks. Also, the new update sucks- it's laggy as hell and doesn't give me notifications even if they are turned off. I doubt you'd even reply to me or fix. I don't know. :-) Full Review

    Over all the app is great but nowadays after the latest update I am facing a problem and the problem is if I open my Facebook in some explorer then after going to message section it automatically pops up this messenger app either to install or use the app. Kindly fix this issue. Full Review

    Get rid of chat heads by default. No way anyone actually likes them. Secrete conversations hides who sent it in notifications. People are just interested in end to end encryption. Have a setting to make secrete convo notifications normal. Ads in messenger make people more likely to use a different messenger app. Too much competition to have ads. Phone call quality is very good. Full Review

    Wth is up with the cookie crush screwing up all the time???? Constantly says something went wrong when trying to watch a vid for more turns or whatever reason. Please fix this. When are you ever going to add SINGLE parent emojis with 1 and 2 children huh? It's sad to say but there is prob more single parents then cpls. Come on now do NOT discriminate! Also, add the capability to access the flash on our phone when taking a pic and you'll get 5 stars from me! Full Review

    Getting better, but not great. Still is confusing in certain aspects, like which people/contacts in your phone will appear in your buddy list, but that's my main complaint. Otherwise, has pretty good video calling and filters/overlays (the tie-dye one is awesome, along with a few others). The last thing I don't like is that it doesn't make it easy to send files other than video and pictures, but maybe this is for security reasons (still, hurts productivity). Full Review

    I hate it so much! Especially the "my day notification" it's pointless and I'm irritated. It's like instagram. Please bring back the much simpler version. Even the birthday notification is in the messenger, who does that? Messenger is for messages, better change the name if you're planning on putting something else in there. In my opinion "my day notification" and "birthday notification" is no good for me. Full Review

    Sometimes I am unable to see the message replys at all. I see in the fb app a message and click on the icon. But no messages show up. Super annoying. I uninstalled and reinstalled. This has become stupid. Why do I need a seperate app anyways to message!? Theres no option anymore to not have the messenger app. Full Review

    It is absolute bull that we are required to install this to see our messages. By simply spoofing desktop browser on mobile we can see that there is no problem that needs removing messaging support for mobile other than that they want you to install their BS app. Idiotic business strategy, and I'd love to see them hang for their crimes.

    So the proplem i had.. that i have written underneath.. has happened again since this new update 2/3 days ago.. not sure why, but for god sake please fix it again.. it was great having the app work properly for the month it actually worked!! Please please fix this.. it's a great app when you tech guys don't do stupid updates. Please for gods sake can someone help me out.. this app has always been great for me, so easy with the chat heads, i can open conversations at any time, but as of late it hasn't been notifying me when people are massaging me, when i open the chat head or the main page of messenger.. 9 out 10 times it says "Waiting for connection" and then says.. "Connected" ..so can someone either tell me what else i can do, or can you please fix it!! I've done everything i can think of doing to try and fix it. It's such a shame that this is happening now for the last 2 month!! Full Review

    Using this app on the note 8, it doesn't notify you that you received a message and doesn't open the Chat head automatically. To have to manually go in for every conversation defeats the purpose of using it. Full Review

    Inge Published date: February 16, 2018

    Newest update with an added bubble for active friends is stupid and takes up yet another space. The video bubble already took up a space that's now useless, but now with the additional active friends bubble and no way to turn it off, you can only have 2 chat bubbles. When you want to go back to a third person, you have to go back to the chat list. The useability off this app has definitely declined. Not to mention, the widget often crashes now. Full Review

    I used to feel fine about the app but after the update there's an additional tab/bubble for a list of active friends, which I can already find on the home tab. Why croud the screen even more than it already is with the stories tab? Now my screen can only show 2 chat bubbles which is super frustrating! Full Review

    Hey well let me just say that I've used this app for quite sometime now. And it's awesome. But now when I open the app not even a good 20 minutes pass it goes back to 'home'. I'm not sure if it's just my phone or the app itself. If it is the app then I hope you'll be able to fix it. Thank you 😊 Full Review

    The app is great for certain things but when it comes to the floating chat head available on Android it constantly bugs out and freezes. Many of the previous updates have the same problem and it ruines the app itself. Of these bugs were to be ironed out if be much happier using the app Full Review
