    The most important and useful thing of It's that by this i could send any file but others app like via facebook lite,messenger i could not send any file. Others can send own app record clip and video. That is the most positive sign of this lite messenger,that is why i like it most. It will be better if it has chat head option which floating on the display

    login For years and years... Still no way to see the time when an audio message was received. Users who are mostly using another messenger apps still sending messages like a "I'll be there in 25 minutes. Please don't be late!". The problem is not with users, dear developers.

    apk Should've atleast enable DARKMODE (needed it since I've light sentivity problem). Enable CHAT HEADS 'coz pop up notif won't be enough. Enable REPLY function just like on the messenger. I understand this is just a "Lite" version but how come twitter lite have all features orig twitter has? I.K diff app./dev etc. BUT... hopefully you make this things possible too. Thanks

    dark mode Dear Facebook, this is a very good app. It really needs the capability though to be able to delete a comment, or a pic, or anything else for both parties. And, it would be extra nice if we were able to move our viewing window around the screen rather than have it stationary in the top right corner. Thank you.

  5. Mark Anthony Enano-avatar

    download I really like it, ‘cause it's getting more and more like the original messenger app... However, in my preference, it will be much more preferable if it has the “reply” button when you touch and hold the message that you want to reply to , OR slide right on the said message that you wish to reply to similar to that of the messenger app... Just suggesting. Kindly consider. Thank you.

    online I actually love it!!! Its so convenient for rural places to chat with people on low internet services. Although it still lacks some good useful features in the original. This includes dark mode, or chat heads, and pop up emojis. Hope you keep improving this app!

    old version I rated this lite version of messenger 4 stars before because it's been great when it comes to performance (less data and battery usage). However, after several days of using it, it just came to me that it lacks of important features. One thing that is very inconvenient about this app is it doesn't notify you every time you got a message even though all notifications are turned on. You'll be surprised when you open the app and you see bunch of messages sent to you several hours ago.

  8. Iris-avatar



    vs messenger 1) Often it doesn't get recognised when I click "send a message" from the browser (I don't want facebook as an app so I use it with browser). This is a hassle because messenger does not work from mobile browser. It only brings me to the Store that tells me to install the full Messenger app. 2) I would appreciate an easy way to see all the media that one has exchanged with the contact. But maybe that's not for a "lite" version.

    install This app is not showing upto date active status of friends. I guess it take more time to update their status in this other apps of Facebook and website it show me correct status. its show me my friend was active 30 min ago but he was online at that time. Its started to happen just few days ago.please rectify this problem. My active status is turned on too.

    ios light on resources. but what i dearly miss here is the ""reply"" and ""react"" to messages features that are found in the messenger app. also, earlier there used to be a feature to send photos in full resolution on messenger lite that was missing on the messenger app. but now i can't send photos in full resolution from either of the apps. i have to resort to WeChat just to send photos in full resolution.

    Calling others via messenger is not something I would recommend. It freezes, hard to maintain a good connection & continuously drops calls. However, I love the ability to take photos/ videos & send them without a hassle, & to maintain connections with friends/ family so easily. I have not attempted the video chat options via messenger but I recommend messenger over any other social networking app. It is free to use, maintains connection to wifi & data, & has parental control options for teen use

  12. Marion Wingfield-avatar

    Marion Wingfield


    There is no way on my phone to delete any messages. Articles I read say to extended press on the message I want to delete and options will appear to allow me to delete it. But that never happens. I send messages from my phone but then have to wait till I am back at my desktop to be able to delete anything. Really stinks.

    I love the amount of memory space that this app frees up on my phone, compared to the regular messenger app has! I however hate how much on this lite version is missin compared to the original version. Lite app dosen't have the filters on the camera, you can't revisit a marketplace add from the sellers and ur convo./litemsgApp You cant go from the lite msger app to someone's profile

    I love this form of Facebook better than the other one. And I'm glad to be back, for a long while I thought that I would never be on facebook lite ever again. I posted a couple of cons and all of their information on them. In return they logged me out of both of my facebook accounts. It took a while to get back.

  15. 2starsinthemaking-avatar



    Rather annoyed with it atm. Prefered it to the full messenger before but now all the contacts are in the ABC order and it doesn't show how long ago they were on. I want to see the people I've recently interacted with first. Pls fix!

  16. Pacres, John Emmanuel-avatar

    Pacres, John Emmanuel


    It's ok but why there's no reply button? it so much more easier if there's reply button to avoid misunderstanding in conversations. It also takes too long to send a document file here like .rar or .pptx... I hope this will be fixed soon.

  17. Thea kyOot-avatar

    It's easy to use i like it but i want it to be more like the original one that has reply button , dark mode , GIF and more stickers , reaction button , i wish i can joined the group video chat and also to be more fast and updated thankyou for making this app i hope you'll update it to be more. Godbless.

    For an app that use less capabilities to its original counter part as it is very useful as it allows you to use the basics when it come to what is needed.

  19. VeesInStoneyCreek-avatar



    Notification icon won't stay off after I read messages. It'll go away for a hot minute, then pop back up. Super annoying.

  20. Kyle Sullivan-avatar

    Kyle Sullivan


    Definitely works just as well, doesn't take up as much space, drain my battery as hard, and i disable it normally when not in use. Definitely need more lite versions of popular apps that take up huge amounts of processing memory and internal space .

  21. Ikende Ya Motina-avatar

    Ikende Ya Motina


    It's really a great app, but I think some adjustments need to be made. The option to delete message for everyone should be introduced, and also select multiple messages to delete. With these two features, the app will be super fantastic.

  22. Will Dewar-avatar

    Will Dewar


    Not bad, one thing to add... When you press and hold a message now you can react, forward, copy, etc. Please make it so you can also reply to specific messages as well since its the one option not there. (For group chats, etc)

    This app is really amazing. with this, I get to use less data for video call and chatting with my friends, and loved ones. and luckily, this is the best app to use. better than the old one. i highly recommend this. 😊

    It's okay for me who rarely uses this app but I prefer if this has a dark mode. The white background is not good for my eyes. Hope you will take this into consideration. Might increase the stars.

    The app is much lighter than the Messenger app, but it still has almost all the functionality of the Messenger app. Useful for people who wanna save storage. Keep it up!

    Don't message copy & paste and share.Don't Groups audio & video call. Stickers options very bad quality because dont good stickers.Audio & Video call dont develop very bad quality audio & video calls.Dont send long videos. Dark mode add please. Please slove this problems.

    It's nice because it's light. The only thing I hate about the app is you can't reply to a specific message in a chat which is why I am still using the "not lite" version of it.

    I can't have a video call with my groupmates. I can have a video call when it comes to a private chat. I hate this app but I still rate this 5 because it's still use full to me.

    Its a good app but i hope it has a reply option whenever i long press the message just like the messenger app and i hope it got a group video chat or group video calls just like the original messenger,thats all but still its a nice app.

  35. Mua Unite-avatar

    Mua Unite


    So far it's good. I downloaded Facebook lite as well because I don't use it much... same with messenger. I also got Facebook lite because of the dark mode. Would give this a solid 5 stars if it had dark mode like the original messenger.

    bae taehyung


    It's a good app. The only thing that I want to complain is I don't receive any messages notifications. It really hinders me to reply sooner to some important matters cuz I dont use it every time. I hope you could fix this. EDIT: My message is seen in the wrong timestamp. Sent my message at 2:30 then it'll be placed in the chat box before 2:30. Now it's a mess because it's not placed in the right time stamp it's annoying.

    Audio cuts out frequently when person called is talking, even when no sound on my end. It's as if the App doesn't operate in full duplex audio. This means only one person can talk while the other must listen. If they both talk at the same time the audio is muted and nothing is communicated. Such a pain compared to Face Time. Video quality is sub par. Overall compared to Face Time on the same internet, very poor.

    It was a nice app but it doesn't have an options on the notification sound and it doesn't have a chatheads also, i can hardly recognizes whoever chatted me when i'm in another app.

    It's a nice app similar to messenger but there still a bit of improvements needed for instance can you add a feature where you can reply the chat the person sent to you just like in FB lite, can you add it pls it would be useful though...

    Can't delete individual messages. Great that it doesn't use much space but because I can't delete individual messages it sort of negates that advantage!

    The only thing I love about this is the fact that you can upload files and documents while the original messenger can't. Useful enough for me.

    It's fast...and you know, light. It doesn't consume much RAM. But it's really lacking in terms of other messenger app functions. The most annoying is that you can't send videos. You can't reply to a particular message like the messenger app. And in group messages I don't get to participate in audio or video chat. Adding these functions would really help.

  50. Nafis Ul Abid-avatar

    Comes with tons of issues. For starters, I can't reply to an older message (even Facebook Lite has that feature, for god's sake!) Sometimes I can react to messages, sometimes I can't. And My active status always turns on despite the setting. If I have too many unread messages, they keep refreshing non-stop and I have to restart the app to stop that.

    This app is supposed to be smaller than the standard fb messenger. However when updates are needed and the update shows 11.5MB needed when u go to update, when in fact, u will need closer to 750MB in order for the update to occur. Makes this app total trash. Devs wont even bother to make the proper agustments because then they would actually have to do something other than sit there like etitled 'tards, silver linning their pockets.

    BEWARE uses HUGE amounts of data!!! Within days of installing it had used 1.25GB of my data, resulting in me running out of data on holiday, not impressed. Can't understand why because I didn't use it much, only for a handful of text messages. It may take up more space but the regular messenger uses way less whilst doing way more. Seems there must be a bug in this app that means it's eating up data in the background - you have been warned!

    It's pretty good,alright? As far as I know,it doesn't lag like the other messenger I downloaded.But still,it lacks some improvements,like I can't even reply to a message and you can't see whether a message is a reply or not,can't react on messages,I m fine with the stickers not moving.But it would be great if you can reply and react to messages😁 And last of all.....I have to freakin wait for the messages sent while I was freakin offline,for real man I waited one whole hour for it😑

    Works good for the most part but all I can say is that it does not give off a ringtone notification sound or jingle whenever I receive an inbox message I think this is absolutely ridiculous and I will be downloading the original messenger. Besides that video calls and regular phone calls come in clear and fine.

    I had to switch to Messenger Lite after the regular Messenger wouldn't let me log in with my Messenger account, and it worked okay for a while. But after the last update nothing loads. If I open the app, I can see all my conversations there, but if I try to open any of them, there's just a white screen. Even settings won't load.

    I've still got loads of people who aren't friends showing up on the contacts page. These are either totally random people I've never spoken to or people who have messaged me once and I blocked them and deleted their message (scammers). I even show up there myself as my own friend. The app is blocked from accessing my phone contacts (they aren't there anyway) so I can't think where these people are coming from. If I force stop the app, clear cache / storage and then restart it, the issue goes away for 5 minutes then returns again! This only seems to have returned with the latest 'update'.

    Like Facebook, it doesn't allow for background use or screen-timeout. For that reason alone, besides being HUMONGOUS bloatware (used primarily for surveillance vs benefitting customers), and not usually able to download or post content as a wall post, or the ability to forward to more than 15-25 people without being shut down.....THIS APP SUCKS as bad as full version It's really not even a necessary evil. EXPENDABLE. Mostly using other apps, and going back to just the browser again. Not worth it

    Nice alternative to Facebook Messenger, but I would like there to be a dark mode included in the app, if possible, I think also, both apps would benefit from more color themes. Also, I think a nice feature to add to this app, and if not this one, the full Messenger, is for you to be able to change the notification sound in the settings, and for the sound it makes when you see that person typing, for you to be able to choose different sounds, the sound that it is set to I would like to change.

    First thanks for the basically free service this app provides. Instant Message part is flawless. Video calls are subpar with terrible audio. Regular calls are worse. Even using headphones barely fixes what shouldn't be a problem. You know there is an issue when you need dead silence just to hear the person yelling across the line. Volume level in app needs to be recalibrated or something. My phone and headphones work as they should with other apps like Youtube. Once fixed it's Five Stars!

    Better before update. Since recent update, every app I click on, opens messenger. Every single one! Click app, confirm it's me on messenger, close messenger lite app, go back to intended app. I've reinstalled but ye same thing happens. The apps I'm opening aren't connected to Facebook in any way. Please fix this before I find a different messenger. Update - I cannot cloe the app. Every time i close it, it opens itself up again. Please fix that!

    i started using this instead of messenger because the latter is now full of bugs. even though this is a simpler version, i eventually liked using it so i gave 3 stars. buuuuuuuut i noticed that it takes a little while for the replies to appear. i actually have to on and off the wifi/data constantly just for the reply to appear. it's so inconvenient and irritating. pls fix this.

    Somewhat usable, better than full messenger. Still trash, using only out of necessity. Notifications are non-existant, message removing/reacting/quouting removed (i bet they needed a couple hundreds of megabytes to include these ultra complicated functions, wow). Overall, this is messenger, but it doesn't eat your battery in 2 mins like the original.

    I NEVER TAKE FB CALLS OR DO VIDEO CHATTING. SO NO NEED FOR THIS. Plus a lot of people are reporting problems with this update and I see no agent stepping on 2 reply. I have also reached my limit in as far as any updates saying, " Update info not provided by developer". The last update has so many problems. After last update, my posts pass fast as if a speil game. I can't get 2 certain posts 2 create edits, check on new comments. I have over 1,253 friends and they are all infuriated. WHY FB?

    1/It sucks; no screen options. Blindingly bright. 2/One has no choice but to use it as the original refuses to simply connect. 3/Your arrogance knows no bounds! What is the justification for such criticism? "...your name and photo on your Google Profile... past edits on your comments... unless they are deleted..." Way to intimidate those who would chance their privacy just to give you a justifiably negative critique! Makes those stats look great!

    Everything else is good (specially love that I cant receive calls) but my biggest complain is that I rarely get notification even when tagged. So I tend to missed some important messages on time. Also pls add on your update the ff: + the direct reply button on the certain chat balloon we want to reply to. + atleast let us know if someone is replying on our chat directly. Since msgr lite doesn't show the direct reply (that the original msgr has) sometimes it gets confusing on a group chat.

    Much better than the full version (package analyze = just spyware). Although Facebook-owned WhatsApp was AND IS still MUCH better, with MORE features working seamlessly. Make it one app, AND USE WhatsApp as the template, just a name change and maybe a theme change. NOTHING MORE. Duplicates is just stupid when WhatsApp is just as non-bloated and more feature-rich. And AFAIK worldwide more people use WhatsApp. For Facebook, the mobile website. Works better than both Lite and Full app, for 95%+

    (1) Photos get send directly. The app doesn't ask for send confirmation. When I select a photo it gets sent instantly. (2) When you tap the messenger icon on any Facebook page it doesn't open this app. Instead, it opens play store and suggests you to download the 37MB messenger app. (3) Self disappearing in-app pop-ups are not helpful.

    Before, my device has Messenger app. But I uninstalled it and download the lite version so that my storage will have space. Now I can't install messenger. I don't know why so I don't have choice but to download this lite version. My only problem with this why I gave it just 3 stars is because it doesn't have video calls for group chat. Please read this because I don't know how to fix my problem.

    What I can say about this app is that it is very good, it is beautiful and light on phone storage, there is only one thing missing here, the chat heads/bubble chat thing because when I am in another app, I have a hard time replying because I still have to go to the app itself unlike when there are chat heads bubble chat thing, the reply is faster and i dont have to go to app itself. So plss put chat heads on you next update hope you'll notice this review. :)

  84. Shobha-avatar



    (1) Sending images / video is not helpful. They are sent immediately if you select them from your phone storage. They should first appear in the messenger app and should get sent only after user taps the send button. (2) Pop-ups disappears automatically. Pop-ups should be manually dismissable.

    i had a good experience in this app.. especially in low storage for my phone..since I don't like having the options like my days.. this app is actually perfect for me... it really helped me to have a closure to my few friends in chat and also overcome my addiction of viewing the my days of others.. in the messenger app... it is also very fast and even more personal.. this app also helped me when it regards to my mental health... thank you so much for the developer of this app..

    Its much more better then the original messenger app which is full of glitches. The only thing I would say is there should be a sing out choice from the messenger as this allows for more privacy. There is nothing worse then having to uninstall and reinstall it every time you want to use it.

    This app is fine for me as I don't want full messenger, but you can't message people from facebook groups. You click the messenger icon and it directs you to the app store, where I open messenger lite but then the person (not a contact) is not there. I can't exactly search the thousands of facebook users trying to find the one person I am trying to contact about a garden shed...

    I like it better than the original messenger app. Aside from it is way too light in terms of occupying the storage, messages were sent faster than the normal messenger. I just missed the stickers and other effects when on a video call.

  95. Myra-avatar



    So far so good I like the fact it doesn't consume much battery. I hope you will add the features from messenger where you can delete the message for everyone and directly reply to a message in a group chat (since this feature is already in fb lite).

    Includes people in my chat list that I've blocked, even if I've never talked to them. Also messenger in general needs to create a way so I can get rid of the people I don't talk to anymore. Even once you delete them, their contact/ active status remains.

  98. STERBEN L. COFFIN-avatar



    Ok so yes more easy to use and more micro BUT the app is a little too bright adding andark mode wont really require much changes(probably) and also sent vids and pics cant be seen on any GCs or PMs, its really a hassle scrolling up and back reading just to check that certain vid or pic that has been sent so please add that feature cuz fb lite is pretty much the only thing poor people like me who has low end devices can use

    I like it better than the full messenger, but the notifications never work. No sound, ding, or vibration when I get a message, only a notification on the screen if I am using my phone at that time. Notifications are not blocked, and all are enabled in the settings.

    It's fast....and you know doesn't consume much RAM.But it's really lacking in terms of other messenger app functions .The most annoying is that you can't send videos.You can't reply to a particular message like the messenger app.And in group messages i don't get to participate in audeos or videos chat.Adding these function would really help.

If it is send and he is online then why my texts are taking so long time to deliver. This is pissing me off. Please tell me the solution otherwise improve the bugs.

    This used to be a better app, it was a slim version of full Messenger without bloated extras... Perfect... But recently FB removed the simple ability to copy message text. That's just needlessly dumb. So... Messenger Lite still works, but now it's needlessly HARDER to use. 😖

    other than having ads in Facebook show up for what we talked about on Messenger. (private stuff, like i told my friend about my diabetes test and ads for testing equipment for diabetes popped up in facebook... my test was negative but still they showed the ads, etc) so i use this app only for frivolous conversations now.

    Messenger lite is exactly what it is -- a lighter version of the original Messenger app. Many features that aren't often used are stripped and the bare bones is what you have. Meaning, less space for it to take on your phone.

    This app is great its fast and it hardly crash like the original messenger. I'm giving it a 4 star rating cause it doesn't have a dark mode, you cant reply texts by swiping on the message and sometimes the reaction feature doesn't work.

    Recently the app has stopped loading any pictures or media content. On top of that, the app upon opening now suggests to use FBlite, stating that you don't need both apps for it to work properly. I installed FBlite, and it tells me you need this app to access messages. How is this not False Advertising?

    Developers don't actually fix any bugs. I've reported the same issue multiple times w/no response nor action in return. I'm unable to open attachments/links sent to me through a DM, and if it does open anything it's just the page itself, not the direct post someone was trying to link me to.

    The app is good and helps to reduce my data usage but l don't like the way the stickers are can they more like the one on messenger and the the way l can't reply a particular message that needs to be changed. I don't understand how facebook lite has dark mode why can't this app also not have dark mode.

  126. Torgall-avatar



    Definitely much lighter when it comes to battery and resource use than full version. I needed only chat so other fluff was unnecessary. Messenger became go-to comunicator so I will use it until the next big thing will replace it.

    WHY CAN'T I REPLY LIKE FB LITE DO AND MESSENGER? I CAN'T EVEN REACT ON A CERTAIN MESSAGE AND WHY THERE'S NO GROUP VIDEO CHATS? HONESTLY, FB LITE DOES BETTER than this messenger lite. There's no emoji:( only stickers. It's actually nice a bit because it's not that lag but the features are less:(. Even dark mode:none. Hoping for new features though:)
