flygirl2224 on 9/25/2017
Latest update 134.0 there is STILL no disconnect toggle...why? I don't want to be connected at all times to this app. Why can't I turn it off???!!! Please FIX this!!!!!
AdamBernard on 9/25/2017
Now instead of one app, you have two! Thanks for nothing Facebook. I wish they had a decent competitor because everyone would ditch this unfortunate company in a heartbeat.
Vinicius Brasil on 9/25/2017
We shouldint be forced to download this app to see our messages!!!!
PUERTORIQUENO 24 on 9/25/2017
I hate that now today (sep25,17) I can't use the same emojis as yesterday (sep24,17) on my iPhone 7 plus!!! After your worthless update, my messanger emojis are the same as my iPhone's emojis. How annoying😤😤😤😤
Refusing to use messenger!
Markmc22 on 9/25/2017
Just told all my FB friends that I will no longer use this app due to the fact that it needs an Internet connection to work and it is not integrated into FB! Good luck, you going to need it!
Recent Crashing
eMJayyyy on 9/25/2017
Recently, the app takes too long to open and frequently crashes.
Where did the messenger emojis go???
Maniac Magoo on 9/25/2017
I honestly liked them, especially 😒 bc it looked more judgmental and funny. BRING👏BACK👏THE👏MESSENGER👏EMOJIS.
There is a problem
kitten lover ❤️❤️ on 9/25/2017
Ok so I liked it at first but now every time I try to open the app it takes me back to home screen I don't know why this is happening now it never happened before and I don't know if it has to do with the app or my phone if can fix it please
Bleh 👎🏻
Kandi Cooper on 9/25/2017
I agree with other recent reviews, this app is very invasive and frustrating. Any time I have tried to open it recently, it's been crashing almost immediately. Even after deleting and re-downloading, restarting my phone, and even hard resetting it. I dislike that you're essentially forced to download a separate app just to view or respond to messages. And now I cannot do either. I'm also not a fan that they essentially copied Snapchat and created "stories". They regularly randomly open on my phone while I'm doing something else on the app. The new camera option on it is also very sensitive and regularly opens somehow and sometimes takes photos without me knowing/meaning to. I'm also bummed there's now ads in the message inbox... As if Facebook itself doesn't advertise enough as it is. At least we don't have to pay for it. But still; what a scam. 👎🏻
Stop forcing us to download
Milo add me on snap emilio_rj on 9/25/2017
Use the different emojis
Ymonnie on 9/25/2017
You had cute emojis, and like now they're the default ones, it kinda upsets me, change them back please. Besides that this is a great app.
The more you update the more you mess up.
Pu Pu Huang on 9/25/2017
The notification is pure crap, it sometimes just won't notify which is super annoying, you will never become the no.1 message app if you are not planning to perfect on simple but important basics. We don't need those pull-down camera that no one will ever use on a message app, please stop wasting your time on useless functions, take care of the basics. A message app that won't notify correctly is not a message app, it's just a replica of old school email.
Totally crap
NDE3 on 9/25/2017
Totally crap
Trash app that you have to use
Chastizle on 9/25/2017
FB is trying to control everything we do and have. Why do we need a separate app for chat when it can be part of FB. The main reason is that it isn't enough to know everything about you, they want all your friends so for the ones who are not on FB forces them to use FB so you can message them and then they will know everything about them. I guess you can say, well you are the one who downloaded it. Yes it is true I did. But at least I have a reason for speaking out about my opinion!!!!
Big al212121 on 9/25/2017
this is so stupid let me see my messages on the original facebook app i want to delete both just bc of the stupidity
Messenger emojis
Rebel Beats on 9/25/2017
As a frequent user of messenger I am very concerned and confused as to why I can no longer use messenger style emojis. As an iPhone user I have a lot of friends who use android and can't see most of my emojis. I used the messenger style emojis to check that I could indeed send a particular emoji to a friend, as when in the type bar the emoji would convert to messenger style if it was compatible with android and would remain iPhone style if it wasn't. The removal of this feature is already causing a lot of trouble for me and I request that you either fix this feature or implement a new one similar to it soon, ideally in your next update. Thank you.
No longer supporting VoiceOver in iOS?
zbuzz123 on 9/25/2017
The past few versions of Messenger do not have support for VoiceOver when reading messages. This is problematic for the visually impaired. Affixes strongly suggested. Thank you
Consistently Crashes
CatyKhris on 9/25/2017
I can't even get the application to open successfully. The screen goes black and the app shuts. True of both my iPhone and iPad.
ChibiKiwi on 9/25/2017
I don't like being forced to use messenger but the app's not too bad
Mauchese on 9/25/2017
Why the need to download the app?
Aylar(🎼🎧🎤🎷🎶♣♣♣🎬🎻🎹 on 9/25/2017
I can’t see my messages without messenger?
icorrectotherpeople on 9/25/2017
This isn’t cool, this doesn’t make sense and I feel like it’s an invasion of privacy.
Tripp26 on 9/25/2017
Nope. Don't like it
Do not want notifications on
Kitkat6124 on 9/25/2017
There is no setting to turn the rude reminder off for notifications. I DO NOT want them on and if I did, I would turn them on. Please fix this and make it ok for us to choose not to have notifications on.
Glitchy and doesn’t connect to WiFi
1Ninjanick on 9/25/2017

FaceTime/Video is bugged
Dayvonta on 9/25/2017
It's bugged to the point where if someone calls you or vice Versa your not showing on the screen but the other person is during the chat
iOS 11
anthonygomez00 on 9/25/2017
This has happened to many people with iOS11 where they can’t get on messenger or they get on it for 2 seconds and then it kicks them out. Now it looks like they’re leaving people on seen or something. It’s great for me but it’s still concerning what if it happens to me? Please try to get it fixed.
Force closing and super buggy
Jaycee1922 on 9/25/2017
Please push through another update because this is really awful!!!! 😝😒😞

Thecla37 on 9/25/2017

Capt. Rez1 on 9/25/2017
Crashes immediately after opening in ios 11
Absolute Trash
Gaaracarson on 9/25/2017
This app is the most pointless existing app. I do not, under any circumstance, need a separate app for messaging on Facebook. Messaging on Facebook was fine before and now they have nose-dived off a cliff.
katara11111 on 9/25/2017
It just crashes over and over
Shorty110372 on 9/25/2017
I have been trying to down load this for about 3 days. What’s up?
Why can I not see when my friends where online last
Tinka,Tinka on 9/25/2017
Why can I not see when my friends where online last??? It’s replaced by total number of messages exchanged please FIX that ASAP
Can't turn previews off now
Taralynnjane on 9/25/2017
I actually love this app and use it all the time but with the new update I can no longer turn off my previews. So all my personal messages just show up on my screen for anyone to see. I do have the option to turn off notifications but many of my friends and family have replaced regular texts with messenger and if I have to turn my notifications off then I may not receive important messages until a much later time. Please fix this.

The Messenger App
BudiGirl on 9/25/2017
I do not like Messenger. I used it for a short period and I choose not to use it as of today. I will continue to use the Messages App.
Stop deleting my review
thy_avatar on 9/25/2017
For some reason Facebook can now have reviews of their apps they don't like, which don't violate any App Store rules, removed. Stop It. Each new update to this app does not improve functionality or speed, they just hide the massive amount of low ratings until people update their reviews. In-app calling still doesn't work properly most of the time. Messages are still being filtered, even though they're not supposed to be anymore, and are not viewable unless you log in from a computer and fight through not installing Messenger on your computer. This app is garbage that never needed to be separated from the main Facebook app.
Hazel Kirsten on 9/25/2017
When people sent me lots of pictures I just can’t scroll it sidewards unlike the last time before this was updated. It’s hard to click pic back then click again! :/
New update is horrible
nin713 on 9/25/2017
Basically unusable. Immediately crashes at open. Reinstalled both this and the fb app 4 times. Still doesn't work. Craptastic work Facebook.
Helltrollin on 9/25/2017
