    When you type the phrase "red fox" into the gif search, it populates a pornographic scene. I have my child sitting beside and even if she was not THAT IS HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE. Im not happy about this. Work on some type of filter for adult content on here. Full Review

    I've got a Droid Maxx 2. In my opinion with what I've experienced is the message request. My calls never go any further then being able to answer before the call is dropped. No matter if I'm connected to WiFi or running off data. To top it off now I see my text messages with my Facebook messages. Its also has to many permission. I'm really concerning deleting this app and will when I find a better one that will work correctly all the time no matter if on data or WiFi. Full Review

    Good, but the thing that needs to be fixed is: someone sends me a message when my tablet is off. When I turn it back on, I'll check messages and there will be no new messages. Then, several hours later the message the person sent me will suddenly pop up. Eg: Want to go to the beach this morning? No, because now its 10pm and I only just got the message. Full Review

    It keeps on getting lag or bugg. Can you please give as option if we want to use an old version of messenger? And can you please have an option as well if we want to install the old version of FB!? You dont have any option as well if we want to recover spam mesaages like what happened to our conversation of my friend. I have accidentally clicked the spam message and i want to save our conversation. Please help. Full Review

    It is Excellent but one thing must be created. If somebody mistakely sends a message to someone else but later he knows that it was wrong receiver. Then he ir she wants to correct, modify or delete it. At that time he should have rights to delete, modify or correct the message from the message box. Please submit the option as soon as fast. Thank you! Full Review

    So I used to love this app. Recently though, it's been freezing and not able to send texts. Takes multiple rests for it to work only to send one text and it freezes up again. It doesn't happen all the time but maybe 2-3 times a day. It also has an issue with group texts. It shows that the individual sent a mms text and needs to download. Takes multiple times to download before finally working. Annoying. Full Review

    You forced me to update and now if I don't allow messenger to have access to my camera I cannot talk/text into it. And not to mention I can only see about 3 lines of a message while I'm typing, I have to click the back button and then click on the message in order to see what I've typed. These updates are getting worse, stop messing what was NOT broken, please! Its terrible!! Full Review

    I love a lot about facebook messenger, such as the ease of use and the overlay with chat making it easy to chat and continue with your work. Im rating 1 star because every time anyone I know with an android phone uploads a video to chat, it sounds distorted and underwater. Seems to have no issue on apple phones. This issue has been ongoing for at least 6 months and its honestly just lazy that no fix has been done yet. Please resolve this asap! Full Review

    I like this app alot but recently it started to lag, the calls have weird sound, also another problem is that when I am using this app I cannot tap on a sent message and see "seen at so and so" or the time it was sent. I tried reinstalling but i still have this prob and its not on my phone only.

    Worked fine until a couple of months ago. Now every time i send a video to family there are issues with audio and it sounds like I'm underwater. Have reported to Facebook with no response so am now using a different app to communicate with family overseas and intestate. Messaging and calls are fine, the only issue occurs trying to send my videos. Shame. Full Review

    I'm not having any message delivery problems or delayed receipts like other users. However, the "typing" bubble appears even when the other person is not actually typing causing lag and confusion in the conversation. Also, the feature to see the time stamps of when messages were sent (moreso than read) is important and should be added back. Full Review

    I don't know why this app annoys me so much. Maybe because of the annoying "Waves". Maybe because someone's face will pop up while I am trying to do something on my phone. Maybe because its attached to Facebook and you are forced to have both apps to use it. Maybe because it does EXACTLY what other apps do but not as well. Full Review

    Can no longer see individual message timestamps, so can't see when a message was sent/read. And the copy/paste/select all dialog box in chats when using Chat Heads is a pain. What's wrong with the stock functionality? Same on Samsung tablet. Full Review

    1. Link from Facebook profile doesn't open new message. 2. When sharing videos from within Facebook, the original source is not linked. 3. Non customizable and non removable 'add to your day' view, it clutters the app. 4.Please enable a search within the history of a conversation, like you have in Whatsapp. 5. Notification when new friend added is cluttering the app, blocking the view of real messages. 6. User is forced to use the Messenger app to read messages instead of from within the Facebook app. In short - the settings are extremely non customizable. Full Review

    Makes the whole phone slow. Recently it's not opening only. Crashes so much. It's slow and laggy. You keep on adding functionality of call and message but atleast fix the app! Also, can't I see what's new every time the app updates? Full Review

    It works well and it's nice how I can use it without needing to exit the app, but the 'my day' section drives me insane! I don't use that feature and I want to be able to disable it, but there's no option to do so! Please add the option to disable it or something! Full Review

    The app is pretty good. It's well organized and works pretty smoothly. I'm glad you can put it in your SD card, if you don't have it pre-installed in your phone. Customizable, too. Only apparent flaw is the poor camera quality. It doesn't receive light as well as the phone's camera. Full Review

    Been using this since forever. Some glitches though: sometimes my chats will automatically scroll back to the bottom when I stop scrolling. Sometimes, the text box won't be selected when I wake my phone up from sleep. Sometimes, when press send, the message won't show up (but shows up as normal to recipients and my other devices).

    For as much features as they keep trying to bundle in, seems pretty backwards that I can't long press a message anymore to find out its time stamp. I can react to a message w/ emoji but not know the time I got the message. How useless and stupid Full Review

    1. Add a search button like WhatsApp in the chat 2. Time stamp for every text was present before the update and now I cannot see when the messages were arrived. 3. Which I click on the ACTIVE tab to turn the chat off it says loading contacts forever and I am not able to turn the chat off. Very frustrating Full Review

And that person replies on my message but I can't see it because it doesn't appear. The chat head section became lag. Fix it please. Full Review

    It takes a really arrogant company to have people install two applications for a single service. I suppose it's the same arrogance that wants permisson to aspect every aspect of my phone.

    The main feature I'm now missing is a solid way of knowing when your friends are online. Friends accounts are shown as active even when I'm sitting next to them and they haven't touched their phone in ages. Also timestamps on read receipts don't show up anymore, and you can't see details of timestamps on specific messages either. This bugs me so much and I think it should be fixed Full Review

    Keeps getting lousy. Originally when touch the message the time the msg was sent/seen shows up. But now its the reactions that is showing up. We dont even need those reactions for msgs. We want to see the time the msg was sent or read. Pls return this feature back. We want the TIME STAMP!!! 😑 Full Review
