Reviews on Messenger – Text and Video Chat for Free
I really like using this App, But unfortunately it keeps taking forever to log in and log out. Please update, I really don't mind the new features. Another Thing: Whenever you want to Video Call someone and you push the end button it wouldn't disappear like it should and it gets stuck. Please fix this. The other issue is can you guys please fix the lag? It's really driving me crazy.
why even I alredy adjust in messingers options to be inactive or invisible , i'm still visible and wrote when I was active (like : active 2 min. ago ) ? this is not good option if you want to be invisible from people who dont want to know if you here or not . so , fix that please . And now , after last update, if I watch tube or else messenger is just quiat , no sound notification . why ?
I hate how everytime this app updates it changes my notification tone to some random sound ive never heard before. the tone it sets it to is completely different every time and i cant even find the tone in other places on my phone. its always a random string of numbers. its really annoying that every few days i have to go back into my settings and change the tone back to my prefered sound. from what i can tell, other people have been having this problem for about 4 years and its never been fixed
This is and will be my official first review for messenger over 6 years of use Facebook has had extreme modifications and I absolutely love the way this project that links millions of people. Amazing progress and Samsung user interface I have never had any security issues what so ever. Keep up the great efforts.
good lord this thing is so loud. every other app works well with volume control but this doesnt even bother to tone it down to acceptable levels. UPDATE: It's even louder now with no noise cancellation whereas every other app i use has one. good grief if only the people i knew used another app.
There is nothing but the passing of chain-type messages and quotes and information that isn't true. I haven't received any real, true, good messages from any of my friends so I deleted the app. My account was hacked through Messenger..someone set me up, pretended to be my friend then captured all of my contacts. I DO NOT recommend this app to anyone! I just read that soon, Messenger will be our only way to send videos, & chat with our Facebook friends!Does this mean no more private messaging?
The messenger funtion of this app works pretty flawlessly. I like that I can have my SMS messages on here so that they pop up on the side of my phone for easy access. realistically, that would give it five stars. Why are two missing? The Facebook Story or Day half of the app. I hate it. If I wanted Snapchat, I'd install Snapchat (which I don't and I didn't). If the Story/Day part is taken off, or at least given the option to disable, then I will update this review.
Used to be 5 stars. So sad that the feature "make a shortcut" was removed. It was so convenient to simply click on a user or group's link on my home screen. Opening the entire app and scrolling to find who I'd like to talk to opens a portion of the latest message send for every recent convo. I know it's a novel idea, Facebook, but every once in a while, privacy is good thing.
Ok, so i have some complaints and stuff i want added with editing pictures. First: The undo button is WAY too small. Can you make it bigger? Second: The hud gets in the way most of the time, why not make you able to move it to the top of the screen? Third: Can you add some more colors and sizes? And finally, fourth: Can you make a button so that you can draw on a blank canvas at any time, like you're editing a completely blank image? If this is a lot, I'm sorry. (i also lost my stylus btw)
I don't know what's wrong with messenger since the update, but people are messaging me and I reply back but they can't receive it. It stays looking like it's going to send but isn't received. And not just one person has tried to contact me via messenger, but 2 or 3 about merchandise I put on marketplace and I cant reply. I see that I sent a reply but it's not sending. FB works fine. everything else with my cell phone service is fine. my data, Wifi etc is fine. This app changed things.
It's been very glitchy since the last update. - When receiving a message and clicking on it through the notifications tab, it takes forever for the bubble to appear (at times). - Some messages don't update. So, what I read on my laptop does not show up on my phone. So, at times, I miss messages. - Sometimes when I send messages the whole chat scrolls up a bit.
Ads in a messaging app? Are you desperate with your earnings? Truly, you don't use Facebook, Facebook uses you, especially when it comes to ads based on "private" conversations. Thanks, (((Facebook))).
when I use my device maintenance continually says that I have unnecessary files. The only thing it's two leading when I do that are files from messenger. There doesn't seem to be a place where I can go check the settings?
What's with the ugly whiteness on my contact list? It's too white and boring. At least give it a border, better yet, give us full control over our own colors for everything, especially colors of our text boxes. I don't want to fight with friends over a color I or they pick. Why can't I change it on ONLY MY side? They can pick a color for their side. This isn't rocket science. Survey question: Do I think messenger is secure for sending private messages? Seriously??? Bahahaha !!!! NO !
Fixed now! Thx ___________________________________________ I'm not a fan of apps using white background, mostly because it hurts my eyes to look at the bright screen for long, and I've been hearing rumors that FB started releasing a messenger dark mode version. Finally, it's about time now, but I can't seem to find it, how can the dark version be used instead?
I love this app. 👌 It has fast & great improvements and awesome & friendly features. It's very useful and helpful for my everyday life, studies and other matters. Best messaging app ever. What I can only recommend is the developers must design the app where we can separate the group chats from private chats, so we can easily notice the private messages, especially if we are in many group chats. It will be a big help. Thanks!
Would prefer the privacy of contacting one friend at a time. This app,as with Google, is definitely not a private or secure app. Bad enough that the government can see everything one puts out there. But given that both Google and Messenger are supposed to be private and secure, they are not. So anyone thinking things they put out to their friends on these apps are private should rethink using anything on any app. We just don't have control over any of it.
This is the third time i have had to uninstall and reinstall this app. It locks up when switching accounts back and forth. Now it just refuses to switch at all. It tells me to log out and log back in. With preivous versions that would have been fine but in a recent update they have taken away the logout feature. Its not where it is normally located. We are all stuck using this app! Everyone uses this app! It makes me sad that they are constantly messing with its guts! So frustrating!
Works good for most things Facebook related. But if you recieve a message from someone you don't know it might show you, it might not. The only conversations you see are the ones for people you are facebook friends with. If you are not fb friends with someone and they send you a message, sometimes it shows up as a message request. If you open it you will see a list of people that have message requested you. but after you leave that page there is no way to get back to it! 1/5 until fixed
All the updates recently had sucked. It was fine at first but now i cant even send a video or photo to a friend without the whole thing crashing and/or not loading. It very frustrating and annoying... Edit: Even worse now, if I listen to music and try to send a picture or video my entire phone freezes. And its not just this phone, it happens to my other phone as well. Kik can send pics just fine. Same goes with texting normally, and DMs. It's only just this app. And idek why it does that.
great app! You can chat, send videos and even video chat... but the problem is it sometimes doesn't send messages to some friends and I hate it especially when your talking to one of your friends. And they think we are ignoring them whilst this app doesn't what to send the message...and it does this even though I have 4G LTE rage!!! WhatsApp never did this!
The app is wonderful !!! I just wish there were some way to TURN OFF the "active" notice, when i'm on Messenger. There've been times, when i'm in a discussion with someone.....and everyone decides to start 50 conversations...it's really annoying. If there is a way to hide the fact that i'm on line...please, please let me know (in plain, simple English 😏😊) Thank you !!
I'm so satisfied with this feature. I use it to video chat with my grandsons. I recently lost my only child to this opioid epidemic here in Hagerstown MD and I'm still and forever will be mourning the death of my son but I'm thankful that he left me 2 boys that reminds me of him every time I'm around them. I know God has truly got my 6 because my strength is out regous. I don't care what anyone says, God is real! Hallelujah holla back!
ever since your last update this app won't open you mess up a good thing... how is one supposed to respond to messages when you can't access the app!!! if I could I'd give it minus 5*****
I will like to enjoy this app but unfortuanlty I can't get pass the "sending access code to phone number." I have been waiting to receive the code, so I have uninstall this app numerous of times to where it's states "I'm abusing the system" and I even press "send access code again", to where now that option has been abusive. I can't contact anyone to get this resolved so I'm writing it on here. And yes, to answer your question, I have been entering the correct phone number as well
absolutely hate the new update. . . I shouldn't have even updated my app. I hate using it now. you can't find your message requests, it brings you back halfway up the conversation page when you click on the chat heads, and I can't find my way around most the app. also, something I've been DYING to ask. CAN YOU PLEASE ALLOW US TO TURN OFF "MY STORY"??? I never use it and the extra bubble gets in my way. I have hated having it since it started. I just want to turn it off. . please fix your app. .
I don't know why admin is a feature added on messenger for group chats, but it's a god awful mess. Random people get assigned as an admin, people who aren't even that active in the group and we're even the ones to add new people, then because of that no one else has a say in who can be in the group or even remove that person if you aren't an admin too. This feature is horrible and needs to be removed or let people choose their own admins if they even want one.
As a student, it would be very helpful if there is a feature dedicated to file operations like file uploads. The desktop web app version has the drag-and-drop and attach files feature which seems to be omitted on the mobile version. Hoping you would address this sooner. Looking forward to new cool features. P.S. Love the 'dark mode'. 😍😍😍
Horrible update. We can no longer customize the colors so we're stuck with an ugly green & turquoise, when I spoke with someone on chat I got a snotty response telling me not to worry about the things that have been deleted and be glad for the security update to keep people from getting into my phone. I tried to ask if having colored bubbles, etc was a security risk & they disconnected the chat. So far we haven't found any positive changes.
I downloaded the update the other week. Because it keeps telling me if I will not update my messenger will not worl anymore. And my messenger started acting up. I haven't have this problem before. Every time I am forwarding a message to my family. It always says ur message was not sent. when you tap the details it says it looks like you can't sent a message to this person. What is this update? not to be able to send? I reported it nothing happened.
The application is great however, for people who receives a lot of message in a day, it would be better if we can have an option to pin our chat message on top for our selected person. Even if we receive tons of messages in a day, we wouldn't have to scroll down or search for their names every now and then just to get back or access our previous convo. We can easily access them from our pinned messages. I hope you will consider this. Thank you and more power.
Hi Sue I have always wanted to let you know that in 1984 my dad gave me money to buy myself something I chose a plant .. philodendron selloumoun from your mum. It is still going but a bit sad at the moment as it is hard to look after, it means the world to me so hopefully it will pick up. It only ever had 14 leaves but now down to one and a shoot . Thank you 😀😀😀Marilyn Greenwood
constant ads amongst my friends messages is doing my head in. I cant prevent them from popping up. I report them as spam, as they are spam to me. Apparently it's not spam according to Facebook as they say so. I thought any marketing which you didn't.want is spam, it seems you can tailor the 'spam' to your preference. you cant remove it from getting there in the first place. I'll keep reporting as spam though. keeps someone in a job at Facebook I guess.
Everything works fine , but not while I was video calling with some friends , I cant get to access the mask filter option as there's no button to actually access the filter while video call . I'm using Vivo v15 pro . I hope ur team can fix this problem as soon as possible , Cuz I want everything to work just fine while using this app . Thank you .
I think it's all good.I'm new at this smart phone stuff.Thing is, you got: Messages, Messaging,Messenger, etc. and it's a little confusing for an old bird like me, ok, but i'm getting there. But you guys are doing a wonderful job as far as i am concern.I do have a problem deleting things, guess that depends on which "M" I'm in right? ok...all is good.
it's really fun, it has never acted up and it's an extremely good way of Contacting my freinds, I love this app, it's incredible, and super easy to use. like you can text friends and video chat with friends and call them, I love how they made a call button and a video chat button and you can also play free games on it and you can even play games with friends on it and have competitions, it is really fun and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this, like its just the perfect app to play...
After months of this continuing to happen i have no choice but to change my review to a 1. The icon continues to say I have a new message but there are no messages. I have deleted cookies, cleared caches, and uninstalled/reinstalled multiple times now and it still persists. Would someone, anyone, in the dev department or app admins SOMEONE PLEASE FIX THIS.
Very useful app for communication though I personally don't need such mini games which makes the app eat lots of space in the storage, I hope Facebook will make an option to disable those mini games to lessen the storage space as of April 2019, the app is outdated hence it keeps on hanging. why does it need to be updated all the time, it takes too much space on the storage. not so cool.
I wish there was a way to take groups that I am removed from off my list of groups. If I'm no longer welcome in a group then I don't want that particular group saved on my list of groups. Other than that I love it! Rated it two stars because it really bugs me that I can't delete groups that I have been removed from from my list of groups. I'll rate higher once I have the option to remove groups that I was kicked out of from my list of groups. I apologize for being repetitive but this is really pissing me off.
what is going on with messenger?? it's been acting up so bad I'm losing my mind trying to deal with it.. constantly says waiting for network when I have unlimited data and then shuts me out completely.. freezes almost every 5 mins and I have to restart my phone to get it to work again and then I even have to uninstall it and reinstall it sometimes to get it to work.. its never done this before and its getting super annoying and frustrating trying to use it! please fix whatever is going on with it
