    "share your day" feature is ruining this previously wonderful app. Now its too busy, cluttered, and I'm accidentally hitting the camera button which has no business being on the main screen. Messenger is great for messaging and for sharing images, etc. If I wanted snapchat functionality, I would install snapchat. If you want to create a snapchat competitor, feel free to do so in another app, and don't force it on us inside messenger. Now we have to see ads in messenger as well as facebook? Great...

    Please add a setting where users can choose whether to show or not my day from other people in the app. Seriously, not all people likes to see the my day in the top part of the app, and I'm one of them. Please add such setting. Please (04/29/2017) Okay i think the idea of having my day its own bubble is good. But please have a setting where we can choose either to show or not the bubble for my day. Pleaseeeee Full Review

    Where in this app can I make myself appear offline? No one needs to know that I was "active 5 minutes ago". The app also tells people I was active when I WAS NOT. So when I don't feel like replying to someone, I can't even touch my phone or Messenger will assume I'm active and tell the dang whole world. Serioulsy considering uninstalling. Then everyone can piss off with their Messenger-aided stalking. Full Review

    Did not want to update because every time I update this or Facebook it just takes up more storage space in my phone and just makes the app worse. This time it said if I didn't update it would no longer work. Seriously developers? Don't shove updates that ruin the app down our throats. Would have given NO stars if it was possible. Also WAY too many permissions!! Full Review

    Awesome app without a doubt. Every time I delete it, I probably download it again the next day or so but could y'all please add a delete feature on the app it doesn't matter how long the delete period lasts. Y'all could even make it like WhatsApp, just saying. 😘 Full Review

    I don't like that now, with the new "who is active" option, I can't open more than 2 chat heads at the same time. It was bad enough that you added "My day" to the chat heads, but now with that it's even more annoying. I'm using messanger to CHAT with people not to SPY on them. Please make it possible for these futures to be removable from the chat heads. Full Review

    Honestly, I am sick and tired of apologising for accidentally pressing a totally inappropriate laughing or thumbs up emoji when I've been having a serious conversation about someone's failing health, for example. It's mortifying! Why is it so easy to press and send an emoji reaction? I'm literally now only using the app when I've no other way of contacting someone. Please fix this function, and then it'll be 5 stars all the way! Full Review

    Sometimes I am unable to see the message replys at all. I see in the fb app a message and click on the icon. But no messages show up. Super annoying. I uninstalled and reinstalled. This has become stupid. Why do I need a seperate app anyways to message!? Theres no option anymore to not have the messenger app. Full Review

    Chat bubbles will vanish if I don't interact with it for more than 30 seconds or even if I'm in the middle of typing. The chat bubble will also not show up if someone messages me 35% of the time as well as not give me any notification when that happens. It's getting annoying. Full Review

    Can't make or receive calls on Android with Bluetooth enabled. I like this app for messaging. However I've been very frustrated lately because I have an Android and I don't like to turn my Bluetooth feature off. I used to have no problem but recent updates no longer allow you to make or receive voice or video calls on Android if you have Bluetooth enabled. Fix this issue and make it good again. Full Review

    Get rid of chat heads by default. No way anyone actually likes them. Secrete conversations hides who sent it in notifications. People are just interested in end to end encryption. Have a setting to make secrete convo notifications normal. Ads in messenger make people more likely to use a different messenger app. Too much competition to have ads. Phone call quality is very good. Full Review

    The one star is for the simple reason that anytime one is on Facebook people on messenger know it. Even if one has disabled the active sign. There should be some way to unconnected two apps. I shouldn't be forced to be visible to people during times when I don't have to. Please change this. Full Review

    Need to have word search in the chats and the other chat box shown all the time. Need to make video stays on when not in the vid call screen or using other apps. Pic is flipped. Keeps logging me out. Can't see when the other users read the msg. Sometimes the msg or the person doesn't show in the app. The msg is late to receive. Need to slow emoji in reply in notification tab Full Review

    An "Active Now" chat head? Seriously? You've managed to take one of the features of this app I liked (chat heads) and twist and contort and add useless clutter to it to the point I'm turning them off. I never asked for Days to ever show up on my messenger app for crying out loud, I hide them every time I see them because I didn't want it taking up a chat head slot. Now you permanently take the slot with a useless "Active Now" head, I know who's active because I'm bloody talking to them! I long for the day I can drop this app in it's entirety in favor of chat services that empower how people actually communicate (e.g. Discord, Slack). Full Review

    I recently got the the new phone S8 Active. Every time I send out a GIF to a friend. It doesn't show on my end it just says 'share' . So I can't see what I was sending. What if I send the wrong one? That's not very convenient for ME or the other person. Please fix. My phone is way to new to not work properly Full Review

    I hate it so much! Especially the "my day notification" it's pointless and I'm irritated. It's like instagram. Please bring back the much simpler version. Even the birthday notification is in the messenger, who does that? Messenger is for messages, better change the name if you're planning on putting something else in there. In my opinion "my day notification" and "birthday notification" is no good for me. Full Review

    Video quality is ok.... I don't have FaceTime anymore so I tried Facebook messager to video chat with my husband. I think we're going to try Skype or something because Messager has sound issues. I can barely hear him and he can barely hear me when we're screaming at each other over the phone. Full Review

    Good at what the app actually does! BUT, I am very confused on the privacy issue. Why can't a person be on Facebook or messanger without being "active". Made it worse by notifying when a person appears online. Full Review

    Yumi Okado Published date: February 15, 2018

    I've used the app for a long time and I loved the way the chat heads work, how easy they had always been to arrange and view when the app was opened. Only in the past few months have I had any real problems with the app, when the chat head slots were mostly taken over by useless and unwanted features such as My Day. Accidentally clicking on these is almost as bad as the way they limit the number of people I can keep in the chat head queue. If I wanted a Snapchat copycat, I'd have gotten one, but I picked Facebook because it always worked for my communication style. Now, it's all a big chore and I leave frustrated half the time.

    My personal opinion is .. It is a terrible app, it just makes way too many annoying sounds plus lets not forget to add chat heads blocking everything, the unlimited amount of permissions you have to go through just awnser a message. Facebook, you've got to stop tryong to be money hungry hoes and just except the fact that facebook was MUUUCCHHH better the old way (: Full Review

    It was all fine and dandy until every twenty seconds it pops up with "messenger has unexpectedly shut down" and doesn't work at all. You done goofed, kids. FURTHERMORE, I want to turn off notifications for more than a day. Some people like peace and quiet from this incessant hell that is known as the internet. God speed. Full Review

    Joshua Sponenberg Published date: February 17, 2018

    Could be better. Easy to chat through messages but voice calls and video chat could use some work. Also the failing of notification sounds could really use some fixing because I keep losing my notification sound no matter what I do to fix the problem. Also, if chat heads would stay, I would have given at least a four star. Full Review

    So the proplem i had.. that i have written underneath.. has happened again since this new update 2/3 days ago.. not sure why, but for god sake please fix it again.. it was great having the app work properly for the month it actually worked!! Please please fix this.. it's a great app when you tech guys don't do stupid updates. Please for gods sake can someone help me out.. this app has always been great for me, so easy with the chat heads, i can open conversations at any time, but as of late it hasn't been notifying me when people are massaging me, when i open the chat head or the main page of messenger.. 9 out 10 times it says "Waiting for connection" and then says.. "Connected" ..so can someone either tell me what else i can do, or can you please fix it!! I've done everything i can think of doing to try and fix it. It's such a shame that this is happening now for the last 2 month!! Full Review

    Using this app on the note 8, it doesn't notify you that you received a message and doesn't open the Chat head automatically. To have to manually go in for every conversation defeats the purpose of using it. Full Review

    Does not support SMS on Lenovo TAB 3 10.1 despite having the option there and not being able to turn it off either. Will this ever work properly for the Lenovo TAB 3 10.1 ? I'd also like to see messenger Lite if possible too. Not sure how Lite is not compatible yet for Lenovo TAB 3 10.1. Cheers. Full Review
