Callkit Support is gone
roznalos on 11/19/2017
For some reason I don’t receive calls on messenger similar to normal phone calls anymore. Whenever I’m on messenger call, if someone calls me on my phone, it cuts my messenger call without notice. It’s definitely annoying. I hope this gets fixed.
The security is awful
polyhydra on 11/19/2017
Once you download the Facebook messenger app you better be ready to be hacked. It has horrible security on top of the horrible security Facebook already has People can access your entire phone the minute you download messenger no matter how many security features you have.

No I don’t want notifications. No I don’t want you to steal my address book. Stop asking repeatedly. Garbage app

I was prompted to turn on notifications literally three times before I was able to view a message. Extremely irritating.
Magician34 on 11/18/2017
Ever since I upgraded to IOS 11, I can no longer adjust the call volume in voice calls and video calls through messenger. I can press the volume button and the indicator will show up, but no actual volume change. This is extremely infuriating, as sometimes the initial volume would be REALLY LOUD, and other times REALLY LOW, and there is NO WAY WHATSOEVER for me to change the volume. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled messenger multiple times, always updated to the latest version but nothing helped. Can you PLEASE FIX THIS?? I am forced to use messenger as all of my friends use it, and none of their android phones have this problem. I never leave reviews but this problem has been going on ever since IOS 11 came out and there has been no fix about it. I hope you guys can fix it soon as this is extremely frustrating. Thanks in advance.
My days

I can't see any days neither post any my day please solve it
I can’t reconfirm my phone number!!!
Sassysilver7 on 11/18/2017
I recently logged into my messenger account on one of my old tablets about a week ago and now that I open the app on my IPhone it’s saying please reconfirm your phone number. I have the same phone number and I get a code in a text but when I type it in and I am typing the right exact code, it says invalid data! Please fix this for me!!!😠
BiGZ~Sanity on 11/18/2017
Have been tryen to install this app for a mo th and it will not install! Don’t like the new privacy act but whatever!

Issues with Day and People profile picture
misscutie342 on 11/18/2017
Anyone else having issues with their day not working, and people profile picture not changed, when someone changed it a long time ago
Annoying AF
USMC0351 on 11/18/2017
Why does this app essentially force you to enable push notifications and sync your contacts?? Why does it ask me multiple times each and every time I open the app if I want to sync my contacts?? NO! I DON’T want to sync my contacts so just stop asking for crying out loud. Zuckerberg should be ashamed of himself. The user experience is terrible.
Mostly good
oct_mama16 on 11/18/2017
I enjoy this app. And I like the new feature of being able to talk to "bots". The main thing that annoys me is that "active" shows people I'm not even friends with. I wish there was a way to select whether I only want to see active friends or everyone. I see names on there that I would rather not see again and that's why we aren't friends and yet I see every time they are active. Get my drift? Please add this option! Thanks.

Unable to change video chat volume
Kitiikawaii03 on 11/18/2017
I am suddenly unable to change the video chat volume with the new update and its very irritable because sometimes it's too quiet and sometimes its very very loud and I have no choice but to end the call. Please do something about this quick since I use the videochat daily. Thank you.
Buzz kill
LifeAquatic1969 on 11/18/2017
I switched to the iPhone X and messenger won't commute. TBH I'd rather smell a fart than use it, but so many people don't know how to do anything else. I'll let you know when I get it working and I'll message you so we can go watch Superman fights Wonderwoman.

Why did i rate it with 4 stars
Im_palestinian ❤️🖤💚 on 11/18/2017
I rated it 4 stars cause of the problems in the group call .
J-ATL on 11/18/2017
The new update has issues with notifications. Even when I don’t have a new message it says I do.
Stop Asking Me To Invite People
Neo-QueenSerenity on 11/18/2017
Move the invite button. It's making me irritated beyond belief that every time I go back to my messages I press the button. All of my friends use it, the invite is redundant and annoying. Edit: This has gone down to one star with the new added feature of ads. They are annoying.
Sarvmetal on 11/18/2017
The user interface it's is almost impossible to use with all that features that have been added, and crashes very often, I really don't like to use the messenger but it's necessary if you want to text with friends.
Keeps crashing
The 4 wolfpups on 11/18/2017
It was working just fine but now today it keeps crashing for no reason- every time I try to open messsinger
Boringjeremy on 11/18/2017
I do not use this often I do not want there to be a constant reminder to turn on notifications. Please fix this.
Frustrated & reluctant user on 11/18/2017
I NEVER feel safe on this app, but unfortunately it seems necessary for communication with others at times, so I continue forcing myself to use it!! RELUCTANTLY & constantly having to remove & reinstall your app. (Which I do because I’m concerned it’s malicious!) The newest problem is that my “session” keeps expiring every time I’ve left it to continue doing, well, my life. So, I have to re-enter to reopen constantly, which I feel this is where you are trying to trip me up, since I DO NOT share my phone number, nor sync my contacts, etc... I give the bare necessities to use your Messenger app! Please share with me the problem or reasons this is happening!! I also request that you make this app safer to use! You certainly seem to have enough followers, as well as staff members to make these changes, fix theses problems, and fill this request. Thank you. Sincerely, Frustrated & reluctant user 11/18/17
Message Requests won’t go away
Honey1303 on 11/18/2017
Please fix the bug where it tells that there are message requests. I added all the unknown people and it still won’t go away. In addition, none of those people on that list had actually sent me a message! Fix ASAP please
Constantly asks to turn notifications on
Snowblind5895 on 11/18/2017
Facebook, how about adding “no thanks” button to “please turn on notifications”. Does your mission say “connect the world” or “get users eyeballs”?
No bueno
P. Luckett on 11/18/2017
Don't do it to yourself. I'm only subjecting myself to it because my husband is deployed and google hangouts has a poor connection sometimes. And why do I feel like I'm forced to download this app?? Oh yeah, because trying to check my messages on the Facebook app yields me no results at all and I don't get notified otherwise.

Video calls
wilpit68 on 11/18/2017
Video and regular calls are dropping automatically. Won’t let me do any calls since the last update
Loading app
WilliamM11 on 11/18/2017
Ever since the update to IOS 11 the app takes forever to load.
Too Glitchy
Me to the Gaming Company49505 on 11/18/2017
Ever since the last update my phone has been glitchy. It won’t send messages sometimes even when I’m connected to WiFi. It’s annoying that we need a totally separate app for messenger when it doesn’t work sometimes. I’ve had to uninstall the app twice in one week to try and fix these issues. Edit: I will say I am an Apple user that has the most current updates for messenger and Apple. Seems to be a common problem with other IOS users.
CharliiC on 11/18/2017
Please stop forcing me to turn on my notifications by annoying the bejezus out of me about it every time I open the app.
Arelyjellyyy on 11/18/2017
it doesn’t let me send people messages , they don’t receive them
Stop begging for ratings you beggars
Manna1312 on 11/18/2017
Please stop begging for ratings after every call - go beg on in the streets and I will rate you 5 stars
I don’t want notifications
Amcterrible on 11/18/2017
Stop asking me to turn on notifications every time I open the app. I don’t want them turned on and never will for this stupid app.
Clbme86 on 11/18/2017
The biggest issue I have right now is my text box disappearing and not coming back until I back out of a conversation and come back in. Here’s how it goes: 1. I’m actively in a chat 2. I scroll up a bit to see a message that I missed. 3. The text box for typing a reply goes away as I scroll up 4. I scroll back down to reply to a text, but the text box doesn’t come back 5. I tap in the square...the cursor shows up, but still no text box (I.e. the keyboard never appears). 6. I back out of the conversation and select it again from the messenger home page. 7i now finally have a keyboard again. Please fix this.
If I delete OLD contacts on my phone, I DON'T WANT TO SEE THEM!
Lkennice on 11/18/2017
If I DELETE contacts on my phone AND in iCloud, I DON'T WANT TO SEE THEM ON MESSENGER ANYMORE!! As a matter of fact, how can it be that they're still there if you sync with the latest updates/changes?!?! Delete, delete, delete! ALSO, I can’t get to my connection requests. Every time I try, it spools around and around and then shuts down - FIX IT!!!!! 11/18/17
Secret messages
Sun DanceKid on 11/18/2017
Most of the time messages will sit in the sent status and not deliver sometimes for several hours. Please fix this!
Himself him on 11/18/2017
We need a messenger for free version of facebook
New feature please???
Annamoo2 on 11/17/2017
Have liked the older versions better. The thing I’m waiting for is a way to go to the beginning of a conversation. Have spent 6 1/2 hours scrolling all the way back through one before. Really want to read the messages from when I first started talking to my boyfriend but I don’t want to spend that much time scrolling
Selection of multiple texts for deleting..
Shilpa Jaiswal on 11/17/2017
I have to select one text at a time to delete it in a conversation.. there should be an option to select multiple texts for deletion.. it saves time and is convenient. Kindly consider this..
Set5v9 on 11/17/2017
I hate that I can’t use messenger in my browser. I do not have room in my phone for the app and The things on my phone are needed for my 2 small businesses.
Where is the Callkit update for iOS 11.1.1&2?
StormWitch on 11/17/2017
After running the updates for my iphone the callkit interface and lockscreen answer feature for incoming messenger calls is nowhere to be found. Apple says that it’s because the version written for iOS 10 isn’t compatible any longer. Please help your loyal subscribers that rely on this function to speak with loved ones out of the country and that rely on data calls to save minutes.
Where are my buttons
MsKrity74 on 11/17/2017
If phones locked Now when a call comes in my screen is grey with no options to end call turn on speaker nothing. I have to hard close app and voice call the person back.
Group Emojis
Adxflores0 on 11/17/2017
With emojis such as the heart, snowman, etc, we see other emojis falling down the chat. There’s a toilet emoji and it seems dry when I send it, so I would like for you guys to make it more interesting and funny. Make the 💩 fall down when someone sends the toilet emoji. Thank you.
