The worst! (1/5)

Just stop with these annoying updates, they don’t work!! - Elizarent

Can’t share photos from Text. (1/5)

I have been having problems sharing photos sent to me via text on my phone and then sending them to messenger. I keep getting the following message “Can’t Send Message Check Your Connection and Try Again.” I am connected to WiFi at home and I have used my cellular data and I keep getting the same message. I used to be able to be able to send them Please Fix This Problem A.S.A.P. - Lilly2179

What I don’t like (2/5)

I don’t like how the new update doesn’t let you see what time the message was viewed. - deziray32904

New Update (1/5)

The app randomly updated and now you can no longer see when your message is delivered or read unless you open the conversation which I think is obnoxious. I don’t think it needed to be changed at all. - Sand pit turtle 2000

It always appears online (1/5)

This app needs to be fixed because I don’t like appearing online and there is no option to appear offline Actually there is but it doesn’t work!!! - Rikardoc03

Let's make... (1/5)

...the Facebook experience even worse by splitting it into multiple apps. - Mmmmhfddssd

Too Many Glitches (2/5)

Recently, when I try to send pics to my friends, they can’t see them, despite me being able to, but when I leave and return to the app, the pics are practically invisible. And what I mean by that is, you can see the outline of where the pics are supposed to be, but there’s no pic, just plain whiteness. And not only that, but every time I return to the app, the outlines of where the pics should be are moved around in random places, and one or two of the pics are still visible, but only to me. This didn’t happen until I had some Internet connection difficulties, so I don’t know if this has anything to do with that, like Messenger’s just not recuperating well after that, but all my other apps that weren’t working during that incident are working perfectly again. Please fix these glitches as soon as you can. - Rose Mairi

Why must we install messenger? (1/5)

Why must we install messenger to see our messages when back then we didn't need login into our Facebook account.I don't see what's the point of that. - Monkeypants87

The newest update (1/22/18) (1/5)

It was a unnecessary update. I hate the little pencil beside both my and my friends pictures. Then when you tap on the photos the pencil is again in the bottom right corner is annoying. Just put the Aa and the doodle option back in the corner. Plus I am not getting the recent messages. I am being given notifications for messages they sent 1-2 hours before. Please just put it back to the previous update. The most resent one doesn't work. I also Dislike that I can no longer see if my messages were sent or delivered on the right of my messages on the app. Please fix that. - Tennantfan20173

Messenger is awful (1/5)

I can never get it to load conversations no matter my signal. Complete failure. Would prefer just to work off of the Facebook app - Dogsportsgal

Switching accounts bugged (5/5)

Whenever i go to switch accounts it tells me to renew my login everytime i switch can you fix this bug please - Joseph rico king

Deleting Messages (3/5)

there needs to be a button where you can delete all of your messages from different people at the same time! it takes too much time to sit there and go through a million people! - caitwalsh17

Needs a logout option (4/5)

Love the app but it really needs an option to logout. - turtle~mom

Show last login up to 24 hours please! (3/5)

I use messenger to contact people I'm friends with on facebook when i don't have their phone number, so I do like the app. However, this latest update does not show the last login of people past 1 hour of their log in. This app use to show at least up to 24 hours of last login which was very nice, especially for family, friends, co-workers etc. We may not talk everyday but we can at least see that they are ok and active in a 24 hour period. And, If I can see someone has been active in the past 24 hours, then YES, I'm more likely to use Messenger!!!! I also have a son that lives many hours from me and he is very busy with family, job, etc., but if I can at least see where he has logged in within the last 24 hours, it gives me peace of mind that he is ok! Please give back to us and show the last login of people from at least 24 hours! Please!! Thank you!! - ShowMoreTimeFromLastLogin

Worse Ever (1/5)

I do not even use on my Phone a constantly Receiving spam messages even after changing passwords over and over! Lots of Issues FB needs to improve this ASAP! - Susu723

Mrs Patricia Tull Daniel (5/5)

Hello family and friends what are you doing today I am praying for my Family my Beautiful Son ho have gone to be with the lord Chris L Harrison RiP my Beautiful Son !! - PatsyTullDaniel

It’s pretty stupid when you think about it (1/5)

Why should you have to download an entire different app just for you messages? In the Facebook app if you click on your messages, which it has it’s own icon, makes you try to download the app. It’s dumb and I protest it. - AH_Muddbutt1996

Happy birthday (5/5)

ا هلا و سهلا - Manonah

Over it (1/5)

You shouldn’t be required to have messenger especially if you go through safari - Aaronsmommy

Problem logging in (1/5)

When I try to log into another account it’ll get to where I’m logged in and then it’ll say you have been kicked out please try again and won’t load any other messenger. - Loveluv13131212

Okay needs minor improvements (3/5)

I enjoy the app I wish it had better setting options though where I could block remove hide people things like that maybe switch my picture so it’s not the same as my FB pic. Also On skype when you delete something it deletes from the persons end as well not just I delete it and I can’t see it but it’s deleted and they can’t see it because sometimes you send a pic by mistake and you want to delete it and can’t should have that option in 2018 - YelloSparklez

😤😭 (2/5)

Why do not I have instant games on Messenger with the knowledge I'm updated Messenger and Alvis - Shoooopoo

Annoyance (1/5)

Sick and tired of the app always asking me to turn on notifications EVERY TIME I open it. Why cant it take “no” for an answer? Why do I have to have bright red circles everywhere reminding me to turn on notifications?? FIX THIS!! - Tensjiuckd

🙄 (1/5)

I’ve been having trouble with this app for a while now it’s getting very annoying! I reinstalled it and it keeps popping up really old conversations and it’s not showing my new ones please fix !! - 😻💕💦

Switching accounts (3/5)

I have deleted this app 4 times because of not having the switch accounts option. I am installing again. This is bs - Cnikkic1010

Crashes my phone! (1/5)

Ever since the new update I can't use messenger for more than twenty minutes without it freezing up and restarting my entire phone! I use messenger for all my contacts. Please fix! - StrangeWonders

When it works (2/5)

Most of the time audio is choppy and video is laggy and drops the chat. Not my connection, because I have good internet. - Jnelso3377

It’s ok (3/5)

I hate it that it doesn’t work on I watch at all. - Kieta0913

Change it back (1/5)

There’s always an update and most of the time nothing even noticeably changes. This time I can no longer switch between accounts quickly. It says session expired and I have to completely input in all the information again. Very annoying. - Jbcsouth

Terrible app (1/5)

Stupid that it's mandatory just to talk to someone - nikesblover123

Only if you have to use it (1/5)

This is seriously a bad app. And not surpassingly Facebook made it worse. It now will not shut up about notification. I need it because it’s the only way to stay in contact with some people other wise it’s horrible. Does anyone at Facebook actually use their apps? - calibrettokid

Update has major bugs! 🐞 (2/5)

Ever since the update a few days ago there have been a few different bugs ive noticed. For instance dont try to have multiple or even 2 different accounts, because when you try to login to the others it says “log in session expired” and take you to a page that is the same as if you were logging in for the very first time. And after it does that the app will unexpectedly close out! 😩😡 VERY frustrating! - Chey🤓

Calling options (1/5)

I like the call feature, have used it several times, however; We should be able to control who can call me. - Erikda

Terrible app (1/5)

I could never hear the person in the other end except for very rarely because of this app like on a phone call with the same device it works but on messenger I can’t hear them - Noahnator360

need to think.... (5/5)

If they added the way to select messages to erase them, it would be a big change. since many people are unsatisfied with messenguer for the reason of being deleted one by one - Rajaton2. :/

Bug (5/5)

Great app... Love it. Experiencing a bug tho. I've been chatting with a few of my friends and when I change conversation (after few times) the app lags and sends me to apple screen and my phone restarts... This is 3rd time I'm experiencing it. Could be because of my keyboard (I'm using ReBound) and I'm playing music in the background - King.8h

Frequent crashes, unusable. (1/5)

I’ll be using the app for about five minutes or less and suddenly my screen will go black. I have to hit the home button and if I don’t swipe-close messenger first, when I click the Icon again it flashes and immediately turns black again, and sends me home. - DoHerHarder

kurdistan (5/5)

problem loading and no worked - dhdndjebdknx

Stupid notification (1/5)

QUIT ASKING ME TO SYNC MY PHONE LIST CONTACTS!!! I’ve said no once that should be enough!!! I constantly will have a notification that again I say NO to. Obviously I don’t want to SYNC MY PHONE CONTACTS. ASKING ONCE SHOULD BE ENOUGH!!! Not a bazillion!!! - kelsonlges

Messenger (1/5)

I don’t like it. Now when I’m on Facebook and want to share a post,it wants me to send it through Messenger. I have to select “write post” and leave it blank. You young developers have no clue what you’re in for in 15-20 years when carpal tunnel, bersitus and rotator cuff hits you. Every click is painful - N@stl

Obnoxious “Turn on Notifications” popup (1/5)

It’s every time you log on 3-4 step “not now” no thank you over and over. Obnoxious is the best way I can describe it. I can turn on notifications myself in my settings. If I wanted them on....they’d be on. - The Krazy Horse

Asking me to allow notifications (1/5)

If it doesn’t stop asking me since I have already denied 6 times when I installed the app I will delete my Facebook and messenger I’m sick of it popping up when I open the app it’s ridiculous - Logeymokin

Why.... (1/5)

I don't see why we need this app. Maybe it's a system issue or something, but messaging was better when we only needed our FB app. On top of that this app practically begs you to turn on notifications. You almost want to so it will leave you alone - Dmurf28

ارجوا منكم حل مشكلتي انا اواجه مشكله في ارسال رساله صوتيه حيث يبطأ الجهاز عندما ارسل رساله صوتي فيتوقف عن الارسال ارجوا حل المشكله - عباس الشمري

Very problematic (1/5)

Since the last 2 updates this app has gotten progressively worse, I haven’t used FB in a couple months because it’s so bugged with problems. Please fix and optimize before adding new features. - PresidentCRAFT

New update (1/5)

The new update has erased all my messages that are over a week old. Thank god I still have access to them on my laptop but I cannot access them from the app. Not happy with this change at all!!!!! - Kristyrc35

The new update (1/5)

It keeps making me log back in to my account... I think it has a bug, hope they fix it soon!! - SkilletBabe

Bad (1/5)

Every time my account disabled for just adding my friends!!!!! - Al0Saimi

Unable to Sign In (1/5)

I tried signing in via code generators and passwords, but nothing worked. Even signing in with the official Facebook app failed. Facebook needs to fix this issue ASAP because this affects everyone that uses it. - HelpPlease247

Won’t work since update (1/5)

Won’t work at all since the new update. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and now it won’t even re install. - mark cuckerburg
