    On Galaxy S8 and cant get any chat head to pop up when a message has been sent to me. But all are sitting there in bold when i open the app. I have look at all my settings and all are on and nothing is blocking it. Works fine on my old phone but upgraded to S8 and now theres an issue. Read that other S8 and S8+ users are having the same issue. Please fix or find a solution. Full Review

    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

    Wish I didn't HAVE to install. Free phone calls sound horrible. Can't even understand the other person. Takes up too much room on my phone. What a waste. If u get this prepare for the devil to take your already tainted soul from your lifeless body as you enter the pain of Facebooks Messenger. Full Review

    Another day in paradise. 112 spins @ 200K per spin. I had 5 small winners and in under 10 minutes I was able to have my 10 million coins removed from me. I didn't want them anyway, they were to heavy. BTW, 112 spins.....=......ZERO SCATTERS! I didn't want any, that's how people win! Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon! Full Review

    Why does your app ignore priority settings? Quiet time on Android?! Very annoying. I end up having to turn off notification sounds all together through the app since I don't want to deal with it every day. Why is this still a issue? Android is the most used mobile os in the world all the other apps follow priority mode settings. Full Review

    It does what its made to do. Most of the time I have to kill the app and turn it back on to get my 'who's online now' list to show up. The Highlight All Text, Copy, Cut, and paste functions don't work correctly most of the time. Pair those problems with the fact that I potentially have literally zero online privacy because of your permissions are the only reall issues I have. Even still, I try to avoid using FB Messenger as often as I can. 3 stars. Full Review

    I do not have the option to use the fun filters while video calling anyone. Would Rate higher when fixed Has been fixed and enjoying it now. Will give 5 stars when the needed permissions are lowered. Can't use messenger if you deny any of the permissions is kinda strong arming us no? Full Review

    Hate being required to have two apps for FB. They won't allow the messages part of the website to function when attempting to use it in a browser, even after switching to desktop site. I keep uninstalling this stupid app after reading messages. Please implement an option to opt out of messages all together. It's worse than voicemail. Full Review

    The app keeps trying to make itself my main texting app and i have to keep switching it back. Also, there are Too many notifications. Whenever anyone does a group chat whether you want to be included or not, it adds you and everytime someone responds you get notifications! Annoying Full Review

    Nice app but I do have a suggestion. I used to play media (songs, videos) while in a call and the other person on the line used to hear it. This appears to be a bug but I would certainly want that as a feature where I can turn it on or off. The recent update won't actually let the other person hear the media. Full Review

    Been almost 2 years since my post in 2016 and I STILL feel the same way today. I tell people not to PM me. I hate being forced to have this to get PM on FB. It is another way for FB and others to track people. It also uses my battery. I uninstall it as soon as I read my PMs. Full Review

    Horrible. Can't turn it off. Once it's on, that's it, it's on. Can't make yourself invisible, just a little "unavailable " that you have to keep resetting every 24 hours. For a night shifter like me, worst program...they should have thought it through a little more. It's coming off my phone. Full Review

    I honestly like to play the instant games on Messenger, but lately the games I play the most just don't load, they go about 75-97% loaded then they just stop. I've uninstalled and reinstalled so many times but it's still not working. Full Review

    I am already annoyed that I have to have a separate app to keep the messaging function for Facebook, but I suppose I could deal with it and it seems to serve the basic purposes. Sending photos can be convenient, but often I will have an issue viewing the photos and especially viewing any videos sent to me, even if they are merely 30 seconds long. This happens to many others I have asked as well, we will play the video, 2-5 seconds of the video will play, only for those same few seconds to loop and no more of the video shows. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no update has helped, and I've grown tired of trying. It works as a basic messaging app for me, so I guess it serves that basic purpose. Full Review

    I haven't had any real issues with this app. Only that I miss messages that are from people whom are not on my friends list. It's not very appealing visually, but that's not a reason to change apps. Quality video chats/calls for the most part. Full Review

    This app sucks. It constantly locks up your phone, doesn't load quickly if at all many times. You can't block the phone app. You guys suck at building apps. So many stupid people load spyware like this on there phone. Look at the permissions you have to give this app. Full Review

    Published date: January 11, 2018

    Too many updates. Really poor app. Freezes and crashes after updates. Pointless as Facebook should integrate it directly within its main app. They only have messenger seperate so your messages can be accessed by the NSA, FBI, CIA and GCHQ more easily. Facebook you need to put this in the main app and start listening to the publics views. Full Review

    Why? Why do I have to install this life draining, glitchy, crapp? Why can't I just use messenger on fb? It's horrible. It's irritating. It's invasive. It takes up 70% of your phone's memory. It's the new and improved, totally seperate app from Facebook for some reason, messenger ! Yay! Full Review

    The position of the "call" button is the WORST! It's nearly impossible to switch between conversations without accidentally calling people, since the buttons are right next to each other! Grrrrr!!! Why wouldn't the put them on opposite corners, or at least farther apart from each other?!!!a Full Review

    Not really sure why I'm not able to change settings on this app. I've clicked on everything I can think of and can't find a way to customize the app. My chat heads was working and then all of a sudden kept disappearing. Would be nice if there was a settings link so I can change this. Full Review

    Not sure what's going on but getting tired of not receiving notifications or even chat bubbles and missing out on important messages. I've checked the settings on my phone so it's your app that has issues. Also crashes often when in the middle of sending a message. Very very poorly made app. Full Review

    Michael Hanks Published date: January 12, 2018

    Good app, lots of great features and does everything you would want a messenger app to do well. The inability to stop the stupid drop down notification from the top of the screen that covers about 20% of the screen is a huge overnight. It even drops down over other apps and itself while the app is open. Please fix this Facebook-long time facebook fan who needs a solution! Full Review
