    Update: its now over 6 months since fb msnger fails for voice and video calls if a bluetooth audio device (i. E. smartwatch) is connected. If i call from my phone via messenger audio or video it instantly fails. Turn off bluetooth and all works. Fb msngr needs to ignore (or use) connected devices. Please fix! Full Review

    Would like to be able to easily see what time a message was sent/received/read from both/all people in the chat. Also says the other person is typing when they really aren't, even if they aren't active. Won't deliver my messages quickly, even when we're both on Wi-Fi. Seems to do that in the early morning after hours of inactivity. Even after hours of it sending, it won't deliver. Won't show last time someone was active if it's over 2 hours, or whenever it wants.

    Annoying sounds I hate the sound I get anytime someone sends me a message. Most times i have to put my phone on silent before chatting with friend to avoid the annoying sound and notification. I wish there will be a way to turn off the sound of the messenger completely for all chat. Full Review

    Ever since the update, all that's happened is that it says people are active when they're really not and now the app crashes every time I tried to call. It's pissing me off because I can't even call my bf who's two hours away anymore! Plus, you have way too many app permissions. Full Review

    Links don't open externally. I can't even see an option to open links externally. In app browser should be flat out banned by Google app design guidelines. It's such a horrible dirty concept. Let me use my browser of choice, not your horrible version of one. Full Review

    No matter what I do to my settings, it will always show me as active anytime I use my phone. I want to have the option to reply to messages on my own time, but instead I get messages from people who can see me online and expect an immediate answer. Why are they seeing me online when I've switched the active button off? Full Review

    The like button is very near to chat box (the box where you input text). Almost too near the emoji / sticker button. So many times a like gets sent accidentally while trying to access emoji. Secondly, a sticker gets sent directly as soon as you touch it. It should first arrive in chat box then should go after hitting the send key. If these two features are taken care of then definitely 4 stars. Full Review

    Note 3 and Note 8 Totally disappointed after the last update! So not good! Advertising are everywhere this days and are so annoying, so why we have see them in messenger too? Facebook and messenger are one! So I am ok to see them at Facebook, but why have to see them so much, when you see it everywhere! P. P. Otherwise the app itself is good! It's connect people together! But is better to have paid version both for FB and messenger, instead to see advertisements everywhere... :) I always rate 5 stars, but now I am little disappointed and will keep rating 1 star. Advertisement are annoying! Full Review

    Since the new Update I get no notifications when someone messages me back. I have to go into the app and hit refresh in order to see that someone sent me a message back this is both annoying and Doesn't work well if you're trying to have a real time conversation. Please go back to how it used to be I am Extremely Frustrated Full Review

    Sick of Messenger app constantly showing Messages and when you go in to look at them, there isn't anywh. It's like the confirmation signal doesn't disappear when you've read the message. So damn annoying Full Review

    Although you can use this app initially without a Facebook account, switching phones (even with the same number) will make logging back in to your group chats/conversations impossible. Worse, all your contacts will be unable to contact you because you somehow have a different messenger account now. Then, you will be unable to use your phone number at all because you've created too many accounts during the uninstalling and reinstalling. Also, because support for this app and for Facebook in general is non-existent, you will have to resort to leaving agitated comments on the app page, and yelling into the void of the Google play store. Maybe some day enough people will be fed up enough with Facebook to use a half decent messenger app. Full Review

    There's a problem in your app again. Whenever I log-in on other accounts, after 10 seconds a pop-up will show saying that "Session is expired" then the account would instantly log-out. Please fix it, ASAP! Thank you. Full Review

    The app asks for too many permissions. I can turn them off manually in settings on my Samsung Galaxy S8. That's too much trouble though. What guarantee do I have that Messenger won't turn permissions back on? So, I use Chrome Browser & go to my FB profile page. Request the desktop site through Chrome settings. Then I'm able to view my messages. Full Review

    Constantly having problems. First problem is that the sorting of folders is abysmal. Just have an option for recently added or alphabetically sorted. This would be greatly appreciated, please implement this. The second problem is that I do not recieve any notification for messages received. I don't understand why this is. If you could please fix these two simple issues with you app, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, should you fix them. Full Review

    I like the fact that I can use gifs and stickers quite seamlessly. Really hate the fact that I don't get informed when new messages come in, or it won't deliver them to the other person for hours, or the fact that it force closes itself every 3 hours or so. But hey I'm glad I can see my call history... Full Review

    After the recent update, it's very difficult to navigate through the app. I'm having a difficult time locating certain categories. Also, I don't like ads appearing on the homepage. Contacting relatives, and friends has become a problem. When I'm communicating with someone, the call will disconnect. This app has been going downhill for quite some time. I hope the developers repair issues, but I won't hold my breath. Full Review

    Love the UI, and loads about the app. The only thing I want is support for edge lighting notifications on Samsung Galaxy devices, because it's sorely messed especially when it's so well integrated on other messaging apps like WhatsApp. Also I'd like more of a focus on secure messaging, encrypted chats instead of having to start a whole new chat for private messaging.

    I used to really like messenger but for the past 2 weeks, it's been an absolute pain in the butt. It doesn't alert me of new messages anymore when I'm only using data, Wi-Fi it does. Also, have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling to get my messages to actually send half the time or they take hours to, this happens when the recipient is active or away. My best friends app is doing the same thing. Driving us crazy Full Review

    It keeps on logging me out whenever I switch from one account to another. Once I've entered in the account I'll use, a pop-up will say session expired. It's really inconvenient especially when facebook messenger is my way of communicating with my family who are abroad and far. Edit: Updated it today and it's just a white screen. Nothing else is showing and it's really annoying. Full Review

    The app and what it's supposed to do functions just fine, and it does what it's meant to do. However, currently there seems to be a bug with sending messages. As soon as I open it in the mornings, my messages refuse to send for a while. I'm connected to Wifi and so is my recipient (I've even tried doing it in the same room as them), but thw messages will not send. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the app or my service, but it should be looked into. Full Review

    I hated having to install this a couple years ago when they stopped letting g users chat in the Facebook app, but got used to it. Now they've made pictures and emoji the default communication option and messages are no longer at the front (I have to click on a tiny button and then only get enough space for half a sentence). Not everyone chats in shorthand. Full Review
