Horrible update
Lilmint22 on 6/22/2018
I use fb messenger daily and I never had an issue with it until this last update. Now it’s sending stuff twice and glitching bad. This needs to be fixed.
disappointed peggle player ☹️ on 6/22/2018
I can’t even message anyone with out it backing out or closing completely, it’s very irritating especially because I use my messenger as a way for people to contact me. Now they can’t because my messenger is so crappy. Honestly If there isn’t a change I’m deleting the app. Completely useless why keep it?

Okay, you just updated it and I still can’t see gifs that my friends send me. I would like that to be fixed please and thank you
Hah! as if it wasn’t garbage already..
Taurus_G4 on 6/22/2018
They updated the App today and it won’t even open anymore.. kudos on great job.
LEIP817 on 6/22/2018
can't escape it, can we Facebook? Get them while scrolling and now we have to see them in our messages, too! WHEN WILL YOU STOP POUNDING OUR EYES AND BRAINS WITH BUY$BUY$BUY$?! Can we not even have an app to message and call people without being tormented with MORE ADS?!! DONT YOU MAKE ENOUGH MONEY, FACEBOOK!? An ad in my messenger list! Come on! 🤦🏻‍♀️
No reason this needs to be a separate app
M3mph1sKyle on 6/22/2018
They used to be one that worked well. Now it’s two apps, neither of which are well maintained.
They call me 21 on 6/22/2018
Ok so when I’m about to type it sent me back to home page to see all my messages!

sfvanwin on 6/22/2018
I love messenger because it always me to stay connected with my son and his family. He is stationed in Germany. I’m able to do a group message to him and my daughter in law. And I know if and when they have looked at it. We love this connection we have. If it weren’t for messenger, my life have so much more stress in it.
Please fix
Glitz78 on 6/22/2018
I think you’re app needs to go back like it used to be if people want privacy don’t get on social media and my light still takes forever to go off when I close out my app very ridiculous I have asked for this problem to be fix please I’m asking again if not deleting it

Poised to become a Legacy..
Snow Pan on 6/22/2018
First of all. I don’t want to have to use more of my storage to download something that used to just be part of Facebook. Second of all. It tells me THREE TIMES when I open it to receive push notifications. I don’t want notifications, and the need to keep declining those pop ups is SO OBNOXIOUS! I should only have to say that I don’t want notifications the first time it asks me when I download the app. Wish I didn’t have to rely on this just to see my one unread message....
Invite mess
ericamaeb06 on 6/22/2018
It keeps making me invite my friend to messenger. He doesn’t want it. It’s easy to accidentally click on, and it’s frustrating to most people.
It’s helpful
lovebrid40 on 6/22/2018
I don’t like how you can’t log out completely off somebody else’s phone app

Update iPhone memory killer
Ruffneck702 on 6/22/2018
This app will update every day and will kill your iPhone to death!! Get your stuff together
Ads are a pain
Miss Sue 1360 on 6/22/2018
I loved using messenger until the ads appeared. I think I’ll go back to texting. Thank you, Facebook, for one more disappointment
It’s fine I guess
AnyForLife_ on 6/22/2018
It’s fine I guess
Can’t wait for Apple to fix your updates.
HickNolman on 6/22/2018
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app. But it’s so annoying that every time there’s an update the update notes are THE EXACT SAME... it’s always just “we updated the app” okay... updated WHAT? Luckily Apple will not allow you to do this anymore in iOS 12. Can’t wait for that.
Messenger app NEEDS!!!!
Sparkkle on 6/22/2018
Keeps crashing win opening or switching from Facebook to messenger in the tab.
50Jeff on 6/22/2018
Nothing more to say
Keeps exiting conversations
Braywoods on 6/22/2018
I have always loved and used messenger, but recently the app has been exiting conversations every time you open them... I don’t know why, but I do know that other iPhone users have been having the same problem.
I like Messenger, I Hate the Online status feature
violinguyz on 6/22/2018
Messenger is great except for how they tell all your Facebook friends any time you’re using Messenger (I don’t think there’s any way to turn it off). Does Facebook even have a clue how annoying it is and how many inconveniently timed conversations it creates?
IAmMe999 on 6/22/2018
The call quality is decent, video and audio. The only problem I have is I could be beginning to type a message to someone and it will back out into the main menu, automatically, AS I AM TYPING.......... The message is still there but the point is, why does it back itself out while I am typing a message?? Error? Glitch? Bug?
No work
Lolipop____ on 6/22/2018
Que le pasa a la aplicación??! Cada ves que entro a escribir se sale de la conversación no funciona
Can’t see GIFs I’m receiving
JustBubby on 6/22/2018
GIFs from the “+” icon (on Messenger) Tenor Gif Keyboard isn’t working.. you can see the ones you send but not the ones you’re receiving. Maybe fix that bug? I checked with other friends and they have the same problem.
Not bad
Werdtothebird on 6/22/2018
It reminds me a lot like texting because it can send notifications and lets you know when someone messages you, not experiencing lags or problems at all!
Positive Review of Messenger
Art Garden on 6/22/2018
Messenger is very helpful in all communication from one person to another registered persons
App Doesn't Work
Tmoneymf on 6/22/2018
my messenger opens & stays stuck on the loading circle .. before that it would ex me out of a conversation I was typing in & bring me to another
Milly1923 on 6/22/2018
I am very pleased using Facebook messenger because it is private, quick and excellent quality and the best part of it it’s free 😃
Can’t We Get Along?
Shaboobooisme on 6/22/2018
Messenger is Great, but I also like using Messaging too. Why do We have to choose as default or else either becomes non-usable until it is chosen as default first?
Worst update ever!
kjcoff on 6/22/2018
I keep in touch with friends all over the globe, well, until this latest update. Messenger won't even open now. Starts up and shuts down immediately. This update is a real bust!
S_P_15 on 6/22/2018
Would make more sense to just have the Facebook app and messenger app in one
Bakery Joe isn't happy on 6/22/2018
DO NOT FORCE ME TO UPDATE. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT NEW FEATURES WHICH ONLY MAKE THE APP BLOATWARE AND DRAINS THE BATTERY. IT IS A CHATTING APP AND DOES NOT NEED MANY FEATURES. App developers don’t care or read these reviews. Don’t spam my list of messages with stupid ads and now you want to spam me with automatically playing ads. Nope!

Can't delete old messages. What can I do to get rid of them?
Apple Watch App Spins
Pittpanthersfan on 6/22/2018
The Apple Watch app never loads. Spin city. This seems to be a known issue that persists.
Hate this app
AlbaRoswell on 6/22/2018
The one thing that eats at me about this app is the ability to go back and edit or make corrections in your message. You cant see where the cursor is when going back earlier in your text to edit. When you scroll to find it, and start typing, your line of sight is taken all the way to the bottom of your message while your cursor stays while you type. Its awful. I hope they fix that problem.
Annoyed Also
Moving Away on 6/22/2018
Unwieldy. Inelegant. Irrelevant. Unchanged. Unresponsive. Discontinued ability to select multiple msgs. W/o erasing ALL. .
Ads incoming
cwetjen on 6/22/2018
DONT update. New update brings ads..
It's Good application
Pino1231 on 6/22/2018
I like to use very good I like
Sugar bear211 on 6/22/2018
Works great on the phone but still have issues with it on my Apple Watch
redice2000 on 6/22/2018
I am a regular user of Facebook, and the messenger app. But I have been having problems with the messenger app because it is glitchy. It kicks me out of my messages and doesn’t reply to my contacts when I am texting them. I have tried it on multiple devices and it does the same thing on all devices. This has been a recent problem and it is seriously annoying. I have deleted and downloaded the app again and again and it is still doing it. This is a problem that needs to be fixed. Thank you!

wbenuebfayvno on 6/22/2018
Honestly it is the dumbest thing that you have to download two apps just to message someone on facebook bro
sharda sharda on 6/22/2018
Great service
pmichelsen on 6/22/2018
The app may update every two weeks but it is not so users have the best experience. This app is cluttered and far from what users want. Updates bring advertisements and more junk.
