  1. Jotham Gathoni-avatar

    I don't understand why messages have delay. On Facebook app, it says that I've got unread messages but once I open messenger lite to read them, I have to wait for more that two minutes. Sometimes it doesn't at all show the received messages until I open it. I mean, why should it even be there if notifying me on time that there's a message is hard thing!?

  2. Brandon Poirier-avatar

    My experience has been great. I've tried all the motorbike racing games so far and this one definitely stands alone. Thier could be some improvments obviously, as any game has, but the possitives out wiegh the negatives. For instance its the only game that all the crauch rockets are bang on in regards to looks if u are familier with the different makes and u can just recognize in all things like the realistic cat walks, engin sound . just well made game.

  3. Viea Lucille-avatar

    its awesome and great . its very fast to send messages but when you cant updated your messages within our the past messages you have you need to wait in the latest messages its ok that there small amount of messages what if a more messages ghaaad its waste of time youuu. plss kindly fix this thing but all in all it truly fast!

  4. Sonny Sase-avatar

    i like it. but i'm looking for the latest clip video or pictures in this Messenger lite. There you have it too. i have fb lite but only ordinaryMessenger i own. i hope this lite mEss have latest recent in recently seen pictures and clip video. Tnx

  5. Allan Metiam-avatar

    I like this its like messenger but doesnt give too much space same as facebook lite I love them both but I give it only 4 stars because I cant video call on Group Chats thats my only problem

  6. Maegan Fletcher-avatar

    Maegan Fletcher


    Less congestion with ads and less space taken up in storage. I recommend and prefer this over the original app

  7. Heinz J. Hemlocked-avatar

    Heinz J. Hemlocked


    Didn't like how they changed the way on how you send pictures, like you can't send multiple photos at once and when sending it changes tabs automatically to my Gallery.... and still no reactions to chat bubbles.

  8. Bhalesh Patel-avatar

    Year old flaw. Selective replies are shown as individual message. This basic feature exists in main messenger app and should have been available to this lite version.

  9. VM Ronquillo-avatar

    I gave three because at first when I used this app its very interesting how ever this afternoon when I open the app to check if there's a message but the app didnt work it always says unfortunately, messenger lite has stopped so I hope this issue will be fixed ASAP

    This app before now, has been my easiest means of sening and receiving messages from my friends not until recently when I do not know what had come of it. It no longer serve me its purpose.

  11. Dave Cayetano Cartajenas-avatar

    Dave Cayetano Cartajenas


    Currently using it, so far the app was so good. I do appreciate if you add a feature where you can be able to put emoji reaction on the message or picture. Just like on messenger with the big size. I am not using this app for socializing but for training purposes as well. Looking forward to see that features. Thanks!

  12. Yaniv Knobel-avatar

    I can't even search for new people to talk to, and Facebook site won't acknowledge this app as Messenger - only the heavy one. Why don't you put in the same amount of effort into the heavy and the light app?

  13. SHAWN KERSEY-avatar

    Fast as a person is done with their thought, I am just ss satisfied with the app, technicians, with access to friends and family with ease.

    When I use earphone for video calls,sound comes from the speaker at first.When I again plug it in,then I can hear sounds from earphone.All over one of the best app for messaging.

    If youre going to click go profile on messenger lite it will open chrome instead of fb lite. Before it was ok but this update is not.

    Hey admin I have a issue with this app! So can you please make sure that u sort it out. I am unable to tag and react on the messages. It's still in the old version even thought the app is updated till date. Please do the needful immediately

  18. James Kinder-avatar

    Love this version. The regular Facebook Messenger is difficult to navigate and doesnt have the "last logged on" feature...or at least I never found it.

  19. Rin Abelgas-avatar

    Kinda confused since you see reactions to your messages but you can't make a reaction yourself. But when using the built in messenger in Facebook Lite, you can make and see reactions to your messages.

  20. Raheel afridi-avatar

    It was an awesome i love it but now it has some issues ..i cant get notifiaction on tyme.. I get notification after 30 or more time.. It sucks

  21. Fun Zone-avatar

    It's not working truely. During the chat it stops quickly and then start quickly. All the written text will be lost. Please fix this bug quickly

  22. Korey Moffett-avatar

    I would much rather use the normal Messenger app but for some reason it refuses to work on my galaxy s8, I'm not sure if it's a problem on Facebook's end or mine but this app works fine.

  23. Raymond De Asis-avatar

    Raymond De Asis


    Hello, updating this review from last year for lack of action. Clicking Message Now on Facebook Pages leads to Play Store page of the Messenger app. You need to enable the Lite app to respond to the same action.

  24. badhon shuvo-avatar

    Hey it's a great app for those who wants to keep messenger in less mb and save storage... I would love it if you guys add a message replay option and and a message react option👋👋 please✍ i hope you guys would bring this update soon

  25. Eli King-avatar

    Easy to use And so much less storage then the much bulkier version was!!

  26. VOODUU PRIEST-avatar

    SO SICK of ads for your messenger "stalker" app in my youtube reccomendations...EVEN WHEN I ALREADY HAVE THE APP!!! Ive hit "stop seeing this ad" 15-20 times a day or more! IT WONT GO AWAY...IT WONT STOP!! I will be uninstalling messenger for ANY other messaging app very soon because of that! Youre an annoyance and this borders on harrassment. Idiots. Way to ruin a decent product due to your stupidity.

    Oh how I can explain you that this is the awesome application for chat and also chat your gf also.... When I uses this app so i am getting excited for chat to my friends and that's time i am dieing to see my best frnd,,,,, that's why I gave this application 5 star ⭐ilove this app

  28. MADHURI MONDAL-avatar

    It repeatedly logged me out..... Slower than the previous version. It cannot remember my choice for chat visibility.

  29. Titus Leech-avatar

    It's slow... I wanna have a refresh button or scroll up and just refresh in order to get new massages fast. I wanna look up someone's profile without opening Facebook lite. In addition, I struggle to get my voice notes sent so I'm not sure if that's a glitch witg my network provider or with the app. That's why the four stars...

  30. Monica Petty-avatar

    Fast, convient, and user friendly way to keep in touch with friends and family.

  31. Okot Patrick-avatar

    I rate it to five stars 🌟 . Facebook lite it's still the best ever. Less data consumption, too first in browsing, take low space.

  32. Jackie Dooms-avatar

    I get its supposed to be lite but no color or anything. Its so dull it makes me want to go back to regular messenger.

  33. Sezal Agrawal-avatar

    We are unable to see the stories of our friends and we cannot add our reactions or reply on a particular comment..... We cannot add new emojies..... 😅 Otherwise it is a good nd useful app...... 😊😊😀😀

  34. Oscar van 't Hek-avatar

    Oscar van 't Hek


    No "Dark Mode" like the full version, really? Since Facebook seemingly can't be trusted, maybe you want to let us know what kind of improvements and changes are being made with updates?

  35. Alvin Thu-avatar

    Some messages can only be viewed on the full Messenger app, please fix. And the app has no dark mode

  36. Alazane Padayachee-avatar

    Alazane Padayachee


    Great app, would give 5 stars if I could receive notifications, messages and phone calls without opening the app.

  37. Gul Rana-avatar

    Please add a way for recording voice messages instead of having to hold and the finger slipping and having to record again and please increase the 59sec limit because its not sufficient

  38. Nancy Naomi-avatar

    It was easy to use and the messages are sent fast but the stickers takes to long to load.

  39. Eij King-avatar

    Can't upload/send .zip file Never ending uploading sequences, can't finish uploading the zip file even in fast internet connection

  40. Owen-avatar

    Recently updated and my notifications stopped working even tho the sound is turned on. Video calls are terrible quality, they lag and disconnect constantly.

  41. Julie Sharp-avatar

    Works a treat and uses far less power and data than the full version A++++

  42. Christopher Douglas Henderson-avatar

    Christopher Douglas Henderson


    Excellent redux of the original app, in a neat and tidy smaller package, great for 16meg operating systems

  43. Panton Cancit-avatar

    I love it! But it I think it would be better if they added some features like dark mode and react to messages. 😀

  44. Geobear Nine-avatar

    Still needs the ability to change the notification tone!!! Otherwise it uses a nice small footprint to do everything I need it to do: send & receive basic Facebook messages. Several reviewers have complained that the Facebook app doesn't recognize it as a Messenger app. I haven't tested that (but assuming it's true, FB should definitely fix that!), but I can say that it IS recognized by the Facebook Lite app. The 2 Lites go back and forth quite nicely.

  45. Danial Azman-avatar

    Non-functional, my list of messages don't appear. Uninstalled it and now just using the regular Messenger app. Currently on Android 9.

  46. Judith Teque-avatar

    I like the old version because with the updated one I'm having lots of problems down loading my picture and sharing with friends and family

  47. Jamie Tabon-avatar

    I like this app. My phone doesn't have alot of storage so it lets me have messenger without a problem

  48. Adeama Walkowiak-avatar

    Adeama Walkowiak


    at the moment the app is not sending me notifications when i have new messages. It is freezing, not sending my messages to my contacts and I have to reboot my phone to receive and send msseges when it crashed like this. It's also frozen the notifications icon on Facebook so I constantly have a notification that I have 10 messages waiting. This has been going on for over 3 months now

  49. Richard Loder-avatar

    Please fix the recent update, which will now not install. All my other apps updated except this one. It was fine before I tried updating, for that reason my rating has gone down. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one on here, but what will happen if it won't update for a long time? Will my messenger stop working? Please please fix A.S.A.P :(

  50. Leila Haboc-avatar

    I really hope that in the next update, you can join to a video call with your group friends in you group chats. And also, we could react to the messages.

    I like some novel devices that aren't super fast and even though this is missing many features it's keeps slightly aged tablets snappy.

  52. J.D. Kaopuiki-avatar

    Recent version update screw this app. Can no longer upload photos to my friends it constantly buffers and never post the message with the picture.

  55. Md Arif-avatar

    this is very useful app, but need to add some more features dark mood is one of them.Is is very useful to save Battery.

  56. Zainab Waseem-avatar

    Your active status is not good.i turned off it many times on both fb and msngr but if i come online it still shows active status.Kindly fix this issue as soon as possible!

  57. MotherCat-avatar

    I love this messenger it's way better then the regular Facebook messenger and works better then the other one. The regular Facebook messenger I was haveing to many problems with it. It kept crashing it would work for a few hours or so then it would stop to where my boyfriend couldn't switch to his account to see his messages I had to always keep uninstalling it and re-install the app to get it to work and then a few hours later, it would do it again.

    Perfection of simplicity 😍 Its highly user-friendly 😊 works very well in the outskirts of South African cities 😏 I recommend it, and only it, not Facebook lite 😂💞💯

  59. Lisa Bartalos-avatar

    I have this on my phone, to save space, just decided to install on my tablet. Would be nice if we could have the dark mode. Make it easier on our eyes.

  60. John Blessed-avatar

    The app is pretty good but one complaint. When you go onto a Facebook page or profile and try to send a message it does not carry you to the Messenger Lite app, it redirects you to the app store for the normal Messenger app which is super stupid Facebook. So Messenger Lite app is not connected to Facebook? Smh. Please fix this problem it has been going on too long fb 🤔😐🤨

  61. Katsu Don-avatar

    As someone who just needs to chat, not play a game or post a picture, this app is pretty convenient. It's fast and it doesn't take up too much in my storage. However, I would love it more if I can use the reaction button on messages. It was my only saviour when I didn't want to reply. (◕‿◕✿)

  62. Chauhan Darshan-avatar

    Chauhan Darshan


    Its fantastic i think it is much better than other communication devices whenever you want to spend your time to ignoring borness you can use it by communicating with your friends so i think it is a wonderful app In order to make friend ,relationship and so on you should use it

  63. Vlad Nsjb-avatar

    I like this appearance but can you please upgrade more.... I Cant open the profile of my Facebook Friends....? Lot of thanks. Kindly Fix it. God Bless.

  64. A Google user-avatar

    Small in size, takes less resources, good but the update that comes lacks the proper release/change notes. For this app when each update arrives , I don't see any release notes/change logs something I see in other apps. So, my opinion is, if there is nothing to write about the change logs, then why just release some meaningless updates in every week's... !! Stack up the significant features update/addition, take some time, test it then release please without bothering.

  65. Angel Starwind-avatar

    I can log in but I want to know why I need a separate app to use a function that had always been part of the mobile site usage.

  66. Jerrie Lenore Mystic-avatar

    Jerrie Lenore Mystic


    I like Lite - great if you don't need or want fancy effects for video calls and games. Missing "reactions" to messages, like thumbs up, so you lose a big part of the messages conversation and no indication the other person reacted. Not okay, so we have to use the full messenger app for this one missing feature.

  67. Niken Supraba-avatar

    Tried to be blocked by someone and notification appears on my screen that I can no longer text that person. The notification makes people who are blocked to become aware that they are being blocked. I just hope that such feature/notification is removed from Lite for the sake of privacy. If I block someone in the future, I am pretty I sure not wanting that person to know I blocked him / her.

  68. lawlaw 91-avatar

    The app is ok to use and light enough but I don't understand why everytime I press messenger from Facebook it keeps going to Google Play and ask me to install....weird

  69. Michael Angelo Casabar-avatar

    Michael Angelo Casabar


    Almost perfect! I love how I can send files here. I only wish reacts and replying directly to a specific message would be available here, too. Not being able to do this can cause misunderstanding to the main messenger app users

  70. Muriel Meyers-avatar

    When it works I like it Most of the time it tries to make me Download the full messenger my phone cannot take it its to much for The phone I have

  71. Sherylyn-avatar

    Its ok to use but can you kindly fix the issue when you already open the message in your first device its considered seen, then you will open the same account in other device its message which is already seen is still on going update which is supposedly updated because you already seen it on your first account. Its so annoying to wait until its fully updated on this time.

  72. Ren Bing-avatar

    I installed this app because many friends contact me through messenger. I do not install Facebook app because I don't want to spend much time on it. Now this app shows a persistent notification icon, the same notification icon when there's an unread message, to "remind" me to install the Facebook app. I do not appreciate this trivial but annoying behaviour.

  73. ashley edge-avatar

    What's the point of having a lite version that doesn't work. When you click the icon to send a message via fb(on any platform) it takes your straight to the fb messenger app in the store. And when you search in the lite version you never find the right people always people you don't know. How is this not fixed a year on

  74. AKASH CREATION-avatar

    Good app, only 7.5 mb, it works great but some less features than messenger

  75. kamruzzaman lemon-avatar

    it's better than massanger classic. but we need dark mode and story sending option in massenger lite.

  76. Steven Dodd-avatar

    It works.i didn't have much of a choice . But it's always sent a message when I hit the send button.

  77. Praadai Maseed-avatar

    Best messenger lite. Never Hang no heavy load nothing. And working properly 👍

  78. Moj Nalog-avatar

    App work fine but missing option when click on someones profile in messenger lite to open profile via facebook lite,for now there is just option open with chrome...

  79. Jerry S-avatar

    Video stops working after 30 seconds. Does this happen to anyone else? I see my own camera fine but it always gets static-y for the person I'm calling and they can no longer see me. The only way to fix is to restart the call, but then it stops working again shortly.

  80. gandhar khare-avatar

    The app is really good.the app itself says lite as it takes minimum space in your phone.all features are really good but sometimes it doesn't allows you to access some features,may be because of technical issues.

  81. sopulu okoye-avatar

    It is really good but why will the two person have to have data before answering a call why can't the reciever answer for free

  82. Sakura X-avatar

    Voice record quality sucks, the normal non-lite have better voice quality but slower.

  83. Gregorius Yudhistira-avatar

    Gregorius Yudhistira


    So far so good, no trouble, but I hope this Messenger lite have "swipe to reply" feature, and dark mode

  84. Ivan Miranda-avatar

    It has the idea which the other messenger doesn't have. Can send files easily.

  85. susan still-avatar

    I really like messenger Lite I really like messenger Lite the share on pictures very easy to use and I absolutely love it I would love for it to become like regular messenger in some ways like regular messenger in some ways but I do love the app but I do love the app

  86. Nicholas-avatar

    You need to add these 2 important features in the next update: 1) delete message for everyone 2) Reply to a specific message...I really don't think adding these simple features would make messenger lite stop being lightweight

  87. Jess Dobbs-avatar

    Works well and no lag and it doesn't take up much room in your storage

  88. Bob Riechel-avatar

    Memory full again? Don't understand why it needs more memory than stated on App by 3 times more space?

  89. Sourav Nandy-avatar

    it's really good. But It will be better if the dark mode feature is turned on.

  90. Lee Beardall-avatar

    Unable to open links to audio and video, aside from that a good app

  91. Marino Shehu-avatar

    This app helps message my parents and it is really good . I expected less but it was better . And it's really good for doing video calls . Good job 👍👍👍

  92. Yash Jangir-avatar

    Very disappointing. When call comes only show on notification. But not receive call.

  93. John Taylor-avatar

    Great app, even allows multiple accounts so you can separate gaming and personal etc.

  94. Cassy Avery-avatar

    Calls were static full but if you can't fit messenger on your phone or your phone is an older model it works

  95. Almairah A-avatar

    nice but i hope in the next update will have a emoji react on messages and can swipe the message you want to reply on. waiting for it to happen thanks!

  96. Sammy Fun-avatar

    It was working perfectly at first now it doesn't seems to connect to my network. What am i gonna do about it??

  97. UL LEG-avatar

    the shortcut to go back in fb lite is missing. now we need to exit and go to facebook/fb lite app. hustle.

  98. Dani Varga-avatar

    Same as in the main app, unable to log out. One star is to much

  99. mithun ram-avatar

    Easy to talk with each other and easy to Express Feeling....

  100. kashif Mehmood-avatar

    I like this app but there are 2 drawbacks of this update version.. if you send text to someone then you have to check it manually that either its delivered or not .. you must open that particular inbox inside.. the icon is removed .. 2nd is that it doesn't synchronize phone contacts either... rest of the app is fantastic..
