    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. Too easy to accidentally react to a message, a feature I never use and have to undo. Full Review

    I really do love talking with my friends on this. But perhaps, could there be any way you guys could create a voice modulator "mini-app" for during calls or those voice recordings?! That would be amazing. My friends and I often host several hour-long storytelling sessions, and these would be made even better, more hilarious, more intense or even dramatic/sad with some voice modulators! Nothing extremely fancy.. just something over could access and control during the call to spruce things up a bit. That would Rule! Otherwise, we love it, and will continue to use messenger for our long long long story sessions! Full Review

    The hell, why do yoy make new updates so that nothing works anymore? There are messages that I have seen, marked as unseen, people that do not write anything, but shows they do. Not sending me messages right away! Come on, make another update with fingers crossed that this time not everything will mess up. Huawei p9 lite, android 6 Full Review

    Update boosted rating: it's been working great for awhile now! Dropped rating, keeps shutting down and won't stay open longer than it takes to connect! Please fix! I like it but many times the stickers are coming up blank on my side and can't view things people send, images, videos or links. Samsung S6 Edge Plus, Nougat 7.0 OS. Full Review

    All of the features work and it is perfect except for the fact that it literally will never notify me when I have a message. I have it setup so that notifications are on and that I have a notification tones set and it's set to vibrate and everything else, but it will never notify me of a new message. If I don't have the chat head on the screen, it won't pop up to tell me that I have any kind of message at all. If the notification feature doesn't work, the app is useless. So this app is useless.

    This app shows a lot of promise, and I know Facebook has the recourses to make a good app. So many issues with this current version. My girlfriend (using and iphone) sees that all of her messages to me are marked as read instantly. We have video proof of this and it seems odd. I looked into who had logged into my facebook and it was only me. A huge gripe is with the calling feature. It was awesome to be able talk on EITHER speaker phone or use it as an actual call. With it forcing me to stay in speaker phone, it gets rid of my favorite feature and a part of phone tech that has been established and praised for over a decade. I used to love this app, and I hope changes csn be made, but the choices being made seem to be very odd. Full Review

    Despite multiple attempts at uninstalling and reinstalling, changing settings, etc the app shows my status as active when I tell it to show no status and even then when I am not active. I fought it for weeks. Uninstalled it from my phone but left it on my tablet and like magic I disappear. As soon as I reinstall on my S7 edge... I reappear regardless of the settings. I do not care for people knowing whether I am active or not. What I am doing at any time is my business. Not to mention the people who have become upset with me thinking I am ignoring them when in reality I was never active at all when they call or message me. Full Review

    The app is never up to date. I have to get in to actually if anyone is contacting me. Then the FB changes such as profile pics etc a rent even loaded after 24h!!

    This is a horrible app because I have been contacted by people that I have not wanted to be contacted with because there is no privacy on who can call you, who can message you, and who can see pictures you are tagged in on this app. Now these people could even know my location all because facebook messenger let them know. Not happy in the slightest about this and look to call corporate about the matter. Full Review

    Has to be the worst messenger app on the market. I never get notifications when i have a message, i always have to open the app and then they appear. Also know a few other of people this happens to. Facebook workers themselves are awful, i have reported the problem twice and not heard a peep. Obviously dont care Full Review

    Why is it that they're continuously making this great app worse? The daily bubble is annoying and uninteresting. Now they've added a group bubble that I will rarely use. Both bubbles are stuck and can't be removed like chat bubbles can be. This just makes it in the way of talking privately with more than 2 people at a time. Full Review

    Don't like how you can't tell if someone has seen your message until you go into the conversation. It was great how it was before, I don't know why you would change that. I turned auto-updates off to avoid things like this but somehow it updated anyway. Full Review

    On the latest version you've got rid of the small icon that signifies whether a message has been delivered/read on the chat menu. You now have to go in to each individual chat to check the message status. If this is deliberate and not a bug, i can't work out why you thought that would be a good thing thing to do. Full Review

    The app is good but I've a privacy concern. You can't log out. Anyone who has access to your phone can read your messages. Went u talk all u get is an echo. Only for that the app is good. Give people the choice to log out and login. Security reasons. 👍 Full Review

    2 stars now i can send my pictures in HD to someone, still if i film and send a video to someone 90% of the time they only can play it for 1 sec or not at all..... i only use this app for being able to chat with my friends just everyone uses this so i have no other option otherwise i would use an other app. If i could send my video's and they could actuelly see it in HD or rather 4K but FHD would be a good start, then u would give 5 stars. It also flips not and then where it say's what the other person said for a few times and i cant replay for some reason. Maby a glitch in my app i have installed it again and didnt had it so far.
