    In a very recent update, messenger has lost the ability to share audio files. Last week I could go into voice recorder, long press -> share -> messenger, and send any audio I had recorded to anyone—but not anymore. This is very obnoxious. As a musician, I appreciated the ability to send sketches and ideas to friends without having to boot my laptop. Please return this functionality! Full Review

    Can't open soundcloud link in messenger. App redirects automatically to google Play Store instead of soundcloud app. Been having this issue for at least 6 months or so. I personally use One Plus 3 phone but I know that the problem is not in my phone because my friends has the same issue on their IPhone or other android phones Full Review

    I am not a fan of Facebook in general, but since it happens to be the only way to contact my family (regrettably), it is even more frustrating to HAVE to download this laggy, awful app in order to even SEE my messages. Too many requirements for a base application to function properly, which it doesn't even do! Full Review

    Tries to be a relevant standalone messenger, but you can't even search through chats to find eg a required link from months ago. Must manually scroll to try and find it. Months since my last review and still the app updates multiple times every week with zero notable changes. Sad that we're forced to use it. Full Review

    Seems to be a major glitch with messenger getting confused with bluetooth audio devices (smartwatch). If i call from my phone via messenger audio or video instantly fail. Turn off bluetooth (after 3 months...) calls fine. Please fix! Full Review

    I have a message I sent in 2015, still have no notification of being delivered. Sent through facebook to a person still active on facebook. Also, it's you can only text people you have found through facebook and that is very difficult. I can't even text my sister because I enter her name and get seemingly everyone on earth except her... Freaking updates every damn day... Full Review

    Extremely bug-ridden, which is probably why they push an updated version almost every day. Latest iteration shows that I have a new message even though I don't. I only use this app because I'm forced to since Facebook makes you use a separate app to see your messages. Full Review

    I would recommend two things. 1) Add a 'find' function so you can find the specific message you are looking for, 2) an italics option, because to emphasise, I don't want to use caps. Full Review

    Since the new update came out, messenger drains my phone's battery more than anything else (including the screen). I constantly get warnings to close it (in which case I don't get notified if I get a message). Considering Facebook doesn't let you message friends in any other way, it would be ideal to have this problem fixed. Full Review

    I have android version 6.0.1 ( Marshmallow) smartphone.  Issue about Reduce Facebook Messenger app size - for this, It will install faster in device and take less storage space in your smartphone.This Facebook latest Version 131.0.0.17.89 app size is approximately 42 mb , but after installed this app in android devices,it have taken more than 200 mb space in the internal memory storage space,its too enough, so getting the device hang and it takes too long time for installing.So fix this as soon as possible.

    love all the goodies you've put in this Lately with each update! No issues with it. Just that 2 step verification and my phone number imput! Fix this please and Tysvm! Kind of fixed since recent update ~ HEY, WHAT'S UP WITH THIS "ABUSE" message I'm seeing IN the app? Seriously!? You created all those stickers, put the GIFS, and emojis For us to use. So I WANT TO KNOW why and how can this be considered ABUSE? THAT'S stupid. I don't like using that word (stupid) But it is! I will be sending you a email soon. Regarding many things I DON'T LIKE that You do, Do and Target me! Or and There are others I can contact about Your ridiculous rules and such... ~ Facebook isn't what it Was when you first started it, I'll have you know. Full Review

    I think The Kinks need to be worked out Once and for all!! The reason I say this is Every other day it seems I'm getting a notification either Messenger Or Facebook is updating... Just seems Like over kill to me especially when all it says Is for better reliability and speed ... Yet it's not faster & is pretty laggy & very Unreliable .... Speaking of just had to uninstall both apps! Cause I wasn't getting any messenger Notifications when I had a new message ... Checked my systems notification settings as well as Fb both were turned on and Volume as high as it will go yet nothing. So in turn Friends and family thought I was ignoring or just blowing them off when really just wasn't notified!!! I hope this reinstall today fixed the issue Or I will be changing my rating to 1 star.... Full Review
