    It's ok. However, it would be nice to have the option to select how things are sorted when going through the phone for the desired image/gif. I'd much rather it be sorted via alphabetical order, rather than of recent use. Just to be clear. The only area that need to be in alphabetical order is when going through the phone files, before that when showing all the images and so on, that should be of most recently used. Please implement this system, as it is more logical and help with finding files in various folders. As I have many and makes it hard to find them being all jumbled. Thank you, should you do this.

    I hope that with every update you add new features and functionality without distributing the workflow or usage of your core users Facebook. Messanger has had many updates and the description of the updates has changed ever since you added call history... This is unacceptable when it comes from a company like yours. Please keep working hard to make this platform the best that it can be. Android needs love too. Full Review

    Messages should be part of the main Facebook app or able to be used in Facebook in a mobile web browser like it used to be. It is confusing for someone older like me to use. This is a step backwards all in the name of infultrating everyone's daily lives with as many apps as possible in an effort to avoid becoming obsolete. Full Review

    Wow. Just wow. I don't have any problem downloading this app because it is somehow convenient. However, after what I had experienced just now was a complete disaster! -.- I lose all the messages I have with my girlfriend. Very nice facebook. That is a very nice thing to do. If there was a zero rating, I would give that to you. A very nice gift for christmas. 👏 edit: Fixed. And I'm loving the app now. There's still few bugs like sometimes the list of active friends wont load Edit: I just recently experienced being disconnected both in wifi and 4g. This only happens on messenger. Pls fix.

    Not working properly. I no longer get a bubble that pops up on my screen when someone messages me. I can't exit the app and still be seen on camera or see the person I'm video chatting with. These new updates only make the app worse. Please fix or I'll have to find a new app to use. Full Review

    I honestly regret updating this app... I had broken my vow to never update this again, because it just keeps getting worse and worse. My closest friends use this app and it's our main way of communicating, so the ease and feel of being able to easily respond to and see their messages while not getting distracted by a new layout is rather important. And from reading some other reviews, I know I'm definitely not alone. My friends like to bring up how much better the "Old Messenger" was each time an update occurs. I think you guys should stop for a moment, and maybe take the app back a few updates and start over. Full Review

    I really dislike this app there's no privacy, even if i turn the chat off your friends still can see you if you're there knowing exactly how long ago you were active. I don't understand why there's an option to turn on or off because doesn't work. Very annoying that I don't have privacy really hate it!! Full Review

    I really like messenger but there is one thing that keeps me from using it, whenever I send someone a picture through SMS, the picture quality is poorer than the original. The receiving party tells me it's distorted. I've tried everything possible to fix it, but this is out of my hands. Please fix this so I can use this messenger again. Full Review

    Yet Another LARGE update for a huge app I don't even want but Facebook insists I MUST use! Each update says the same thing in the 'what's new' section each time. I haven't noticed anything new to warrant these updates. I think from now on, unless I'm told exactly what the update is providing I will skip it. If it ain't broke, why update? Full Review

    The new version sucks. When you switched to an acct it will display that you have no messages. You need to restart it. Waste of time. Edit: Updated to new version cuz i thought that bug will be gone. But it just got worse! I literally have to log in 5 times becomes it always days log in session expired. If only i could give this 0 stars Full Review

    Why is there no option to mute notifications altogether??? Too many permissions and I don't want all of my messages in one place, it's confusing. I had filtered messages that I didn't even know existed and now I can't find them. There was nothing wrong w/the way FB messages functioned before the app! Full Review

    I was sending a sentimental full of love voice note to a friend and when I finished the message Facebook realised it exceeded the limit so it conveniently deleted my entire message instead of dividing it in parts. Even snapchat realised people sendong messages, when will you ? I want my long full of emotions message back Full Review

    Since the most recent updates the open chat bubbles keep disappearing, sometimes after only a few seconds, even if I'm in the middle of typing. Also (even prior to these recent updates), a bubble would only pop up when I got a new message from a new person - if I'm in the middle of a conversation it won't notify me (and since the bubbles keep disappearing now, I have to actively open the Messenger app for it to connect and receive messages). Very frustrating, defeats the purpose of having the chat heads. Have been using BBM instead. Full Review

    Just because Facebook finally istalls in the last two years, Messenger decides to act like it doesn't have to install. Tired of these software updates messing up. I suppose it's going to take two years to correct this as it has done with Facebook. Full Review

    This app is screwing with my phone. I cannot make calls, cannot use my microphone, headphones, speakdrs or anything else. The day I uninstalled it, everything started working miraculously. If you cannot make a stable app, please don't make any. Moreover, I HAVE to install it in order to access my fb messages. Why are you enforcing it on everyone?? I really really hate this app. Please do not install, EVER. Full Review

    I have the ZTE Blade, my latest messenger update likes to close the app out on my phone while I'm in the app. The apps interface with it her apps makes the app close out. Chatheads work but once I click to open my message the app closes itself. This is very irritating, plz fix it. Full Review

    It's good, I don't use all the features of the app such as stories and my day stuff. It just seems they've started to load the app with so much stuff. I'd like something similar to the messenger lite but with chat heads, as that's by far the most useful thing. Full Review

    Amanda Bennett Published date: November 17, 2017

    Why keep forcing people to waste so much space for an app that needs too many updates which doesn't seem to make it any better?! All you seem to do is add silly emoji extra's but it struggles to even load properly after an update and messages can take hours or days to even send properly! The whole point of your stupid app is to make it "the fastest way to stay in touch with friends and family" I don't see how that's right when messages would be delivered quicker by carrier pigeon! Most frustrating app I've ever tried to use! 😠 Full Review

    Must fix for those who own the ZTE Blade X Max, when a message comes in, the chat head appears (like it should) and then a few seconds later (with out flicking the chat down to remove it from the screen or without even touching the chat head) it will disappear. If you were typing while it disappeared then you have to open the app and retype everything you typed while the chat head disappeared because it didn't save. It needs fixing as soon as possible Full Review
