    I've got a Droid Maxx 2. In my opinion with what I've experienced is the message request. My calls never go any further then being able to answer before the call is dropped. No matter if I'm connected to WiFi or running off data. To top it off now I see my text messages with my Facebook messages. Its also has to many permission. I'm really concerning deleting this app and will when I find a better one that will work correctly all the time no matter if on data or WiFi. Full Review

    Good, but the thing that needs to be fixed is: someone sends me a message when my tablet is off. When I turn it back on, I'll check messages and there will be no new messages. Then, several hours later the message the person sent me will suddenly pop up. Eg: Want to go to the beach this morning? No, because now its 10pm and I only just got the message. Full Review

    It keeps on getting lag or bugg. Can you please give as option if we want to use an old version of messenger? And can you please have an option as well if we want to install the old version of FB!? You dont have any option as well if we want to recover spam mesaages like what happened to our conversation of my friend. I have accidentally clicked the spam message and i want to save our conversation. Please help. Full Review

    It is Excellent but one thing must be created. If somebody mistakely sends a message to someone else but later he knows that it was wrong receiver. Then he ir she wants to correct, modify or delete it. At that time he should have rights to delete, modify or correct the message from the message box. Please submit the option as soon as fast. Thank you! Full Review

    So I used to love this app. Recently though, it's been freezing and not able to send texts. Takes multiple rests for it to work only to send one text and it freezes up again. It doesn't happen all the time but maybe 2-3 times a day. It also has an issue with group texts. It shows that the individual sent a mms text and needs to download. Takes multiple times to download before finally working. Annoying. Full Review

    You forced me to update and now if I don't allow messenger to have access to my camera I cannot talk/text into it. And not to mention I can only see about 3 lines of a message while I'm typing, I have to click the back button and then click on the message in order to see what I've typed. These updates are getting worse, stop messing what was NOT broken, please! Its terrible!! Full Review

    I like this app alot but recently it started to lag, the calls have weird sound, also another problem is that when I am using this app I cannot tap on a sent message and see "seen at so and so" or the time it was sent. I tried reinstalling but i still have this prob and its not on my phone only.

    Worked fine until a couple of months ago. Now every time i send a video to family there are issues with audio and it sounds like I'm underwater. Have reported to Facebook with no response so am now using a different app to communicate with family overseas and intestate. Messaging and calls are fine, the only issue occurs trying to send my videos. Shame. Full Review

    Andreas Georgakis Published date: September 20, 2017

    I'm not having any message delivery problems or delayed receipts like other users. However, the "typing" bubble appears even when the other person is not actually typing causing lag and confusion in the conversation. Also, the feature to see the time stamps of when messages were sent (moreso than read) is important and should be added back. Full Review

    I don't know why this app annoys me so much. Maybe because of the annoying "Waves". Maybe because someone's face will pop up while I am trying to do something on my phone. Maybe because its attached to Facebook and you are forced to have both apps to use it. Maybe because it does EXACTLY what other apps do but not as well. Full Review

    Makes the whole phone slow. Recently it's not opening only. Crashes so much. It's slow and laggy. You keep on adding functionality of call and message but atleast fix the app! Also, can't I see what's new every time the app updates? Full Review

    The app is pretty good. It's well organized and works pretty smoothly. I'm glad you can put it in your SD card, if you don't have it pre-installed in your phone. Customizable, too. Only apparent flaw is the poor camera quality. It doesn't receive light as well as the phone's camera. Full Review

    Been using this since forever. Some glitches though: sometimes my chats will automatically scroll back to the bottom when I stop scrolling. Sometimes, the text box won't be selected when I wake my phone up from sleep. Sometimes, when press send, the message won't show up (but shows up as normal to recipients and my other devices).

    For as much features as they keep trying to bundle in, seems pretty backwards that I can't long press a message anymore to find out its time stamp. I can react to a message w/ emoji but not know the time I got the message. How useless and stupid Full Review

    1. Add a search button like WhatsApp in the chat 2. Time stamp for every text was present before the update and now I cannot see when the messages were arrived. 3. Which I click on the ACTIVE tab to turn the chat off it says loading contacts forever and I am not able to turn the chat off. Very frustrating Full Review

    It takes a really arrogant company to have people install two applications for a single service. I suppose it's the same arrogance that wants permisson to aspect every aspect of my phone.

    Can no longer see individual message timestamps, so can't see when a message was sent/read. And the copy/paste/select all dialog box in chats when using Chat Heads is a pain. What's wrong with the stock functionality? Same on Samsung tablet. Full Review

    Oscar Weidow Published date: September 21, 2017

    The main feature I'm now missing is a solid way of knowing when your friends are online. Friends accounts are shown as active even when I'm sitting next to them and they haven't touched their phone in ages. Also timestamps on read receipts don't show up anymore, and you can't see details of timestamps on specific messages either. This bugs me so much and I think it should be fixed Full Review

    Keeps getting lousy. Originally when touch the message the time the msg was sent/seen shows up. But now its the reactions that is showing up. We dont even need those reactions for msgs. We want to see the time the msg was sent or read. Pls return this feature back. We want the TIME STAMP!!! 😑 Full Review

    1 star for being required when it should still be a part of the Facebook app. 1 star for requiring a ridiculous amount of permissions. 1 star for immediately harassing me to let it do way more than it should. And 1 star for not doing the one thing I downloaded it for: Showing my damn messages. Full Review

    I love everything except.. the stickers. They're absolutely adorable and I use them constantly. But after having the app for 2 days or so the stickers just show as grey squares. I've sent numerous reports to fix the issue. I've gotten around it by uninstalling and reinstalling the app every few days but that has gotten frustrating as to settings reset each time. I really hope they fix this issue because I literally use the stickers more than I type. Full Review

    lovetoswim 95 Published date: September 21, 2017

    Why can't I no longer see when people have seen my messages now? All that shows up is the new emoji reactions 😒 I swear these updates for messenger just keep getting worse and worse. I hate how you can only see the first few lines that you're typing and then you have to go back and see the message. and the fact that you CAN NO LONGER see if someone has seen your message let alone the time they saw them is just TERRIBLE! Like now you can't know when the person saw your message, who knows if they saw it like five minutes after you sent it and and they never reply back, like no you can't see the time it was seen which is very very inconvenient because now you don't know if they are either ignoring you or saw your message four hours ago or just saw it a minute ago very dissatisfied with this new update😒 Full Review
