    I hate snap chat, it's so so bad, and now messenger trying to be like that. Stop, also so annoying that u can't hide and keep hidden those things that appear in message list. GRRRRRRRRR.. Also voice message should be longer that 1 minute, and show you when you make it how long is left much more clearly.. Now also issues with voice messages, half the time they don't work! Grrrrrrr Full Review

    A visually busy looking app. To much going on in one screen. Many useless, limiting, unnecessary options, and features. No user theme change abilities. Calls Suck 65% of the time and video chat though it be hit or miss at least you can play with the stickers and different face mask and backgrounds while you can't see the person you "video" chatting with! But Pickens are slim round here! Full Review

    I don't want to have to download more aps! Specially bc FB already takes up a lot of space. Forcing me to download this.... Update: 2/22/18. Went from 1 star to 3. Deleted facebook and downloaded this insted. It's ok. I mostly like it because of the games and things to discover. I don't like how with every uodate, they take some things away. Full Review

    No need for this app. Is there ever going to be a time when you can actually make or receive a call without it cutting out, latest update turns my screen off and I can't cancel the call. Absolutely useless and memory hungry too. Full Review

    App was doing great. But now I updated and it no longer has the option to put a shortcut to someone's conversation on my home screen! And it stopped letting me send large videos. But I could RIGHT before the update. 😤😤 Full Review

    This is garbage. Logs out every few days, which means you'll miss messages and it'll be slow to startup when you want to share one. Super buggy when pasting things on Android and generally seems to keep getting more bloated and frustrating over time. Full Review

    Please move the "Thumbs Up" to another location, away from the exit app button. A lot of times I am trying to exit but end up sending multiple thumbs up. When a friend sends something I don't necessarily like or agree with, they are mislead to think I want to receive more of the same. Full Review

    I do not want to have a messaging app that accesses and shares my "stories", I simply want it for messaging privately! You are going way too far with this app and adding too much! This makes it unsecure. I do not in any way want anyone following anything on my messenger! Remove these stupid updates and go back to simple plain messaging. Full Review

    I think ads in messenger is stupid. Come on FB don't you make enough already from ads in FB it's self? Why put ads in messenger and run a good product. Now you only get 1 star because of annoying ads. Get rid of them. Full Review

    It's a pretty good messaging app nowadays, but I cannot accept the fact that I am not able to turn off "Stories". It's a completely useless feature to me, only appealing to Instagram. I do not want it enabled on Messenger, it ruins the whole experience for me. Also, the app in whole is VERY heavy and I cannot understand why... Full Review

    So I have messenger on my old phone and I just got this one. For some reason, it won't let me log in (because my password's not correct. When I try to change my password, it won't let me even enter the code without saying that it won't work. I use this app every minute of the day, please fix this so I can continue using like I do.

    [UPDATE February 2018] OVER A YEAR LATER AND STILL NO FIX! Get a grip on your implementation of notifications. When I'm offline for a couple hours and get back online I get a notification with sound and vibration for EVERY. SINGLE. MESSAGE. Whats the point of that? Why not just give me ONE notification saying for example: "You have X new messages in this conversation/group." Android has built in APIs for this, use them! (PS.: You bought Whatsapp so take a look at how their app handles notifications.) Full Review

    Stop forcing me to install this! I only get a message once a few months and I am not gonna install an app just for that. You cannot gain more app users by forcing them. The only way to gaining more users is to improve facebook experiences and make it more about real friendships, make the interactions more personal, like it used to be in 2010. Full Review

    Bubbles Published date: February 23, 2018

    It's so nice to have the chat heads. It makes the biggest difference. People complain about the sounds. I don't mind them. I wish I could change the sound it made when I got the message to make it more personalized. But over all a very nice all in one app. And pretty simple to use as well. Update. None if my messages are sending. At some points it takes hours for them to be delivered and I have tried everything. Please fix I'm very frustrated. Full Review

    Its clunky; it eats memory like cheesecake; it has way too many useless features (such as the endless customization options that only annoy most people); is severely lacking a night theme, because at night, in the dark, it will burn your retinas like the torch of Gondor; I guess having pretty emojis is a plus, but I *would not* be using it, if it weren't for a few of my friends who still haven't joined the Heaven of WhatsApp. Do not recommend unless you really like that one girl.

    I am tired of the constant crashes and closing of the app halfway through a message. It hung up a conference call on me that costed me stock and money, as well as my time. This app has only gotten shittier with updates. Please fix these issues. Update with not one fix to crash issues that only came after the last year's amount of updates..... Still no reply from the oh so great devs EDIT: 02/23/18 Physically have to uninstall and reinstall every update. Your gif support sucks, your calling quality is dropping terribly, and once again non responsive developers. Really getting annoyed Full Review

    I had no problem with the app, would even consider 5*, but now I get a full screen ad nearly every time I use the app or even just unlock my phone. Very near to uninstalling this and facebook altogether. I don't mind a banner or or something in app, but full screen when I'm using a different app? Ridiculous! Full Review

    I really dislike the new active chat head to be honest I find it to be useless and in the way of my actual chat heads. I can only have two chat heads up instead of three to four like I use to. Please remove this in the next update or make it an option to where we don't have to see or have it up. Full Review

    Tyler Tripp Published date: February 22, 2018

    This app used to be good. Too many features have been packed into it that it affects its usability on even a phone such as the Samsung Galaxy S8. The wave feature NEEDS to go. It pops up to harass you when you're aiming for the textbar, then you end up accidently sending someone a notification. AT LEAST ALLOW THE USER TO TURN OFF SOME OF THESE RIDICULOUS FEATURES! Unfortunately, because so many people rely on it, I am forced to either use this overbloated mess or the completely featureless Messenger Lite version (which is still a pretty good app). Full Review
