Reviews From google play store

Not sure what's happened but I can't share pics or links from a other app to someone on Messenger now?!? I have to save the photo to my phone, open Messenger and then attach the pic to share. I'm also having to copy a news article link to my clipboard and come back to paste it in a message. Something is broke! Please fix it... review might change if this is restored.


I use this app all the time and it is a great app but ever since the last update, which other people have been saying it was a problem for them too, I cant take pictures anymore or use the filters otherwise when I try my whole phone freezes and I have to wait a minute before I can use anything again... please get a new update that fixes this!!!! Otherwise the app is fantastic!


I'm having problems on this app, such as how I can't share photo/s from my gallery to send it to someone. Next is how if I am going to select a photo from the photo button and if I am trying to edit it, it caused my phone to freeze for 30 secs. Or until I have to close the app. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling the app for three times and yet it's still doing the same. Please fix the update. ☹️ Thank you for your understanding


Suddenly I can't share any content from YouTube, Google or any news app through Messenger. I am having the same problem with the messenger app in my Samsung tablet also. I never had this problem before! Very frustrating. All I can do is copy and paste, and copy the link of what I want to share in messenger. But I can't share, won't allow to share the news etc. with my contacts. I unistalled Facebook app from my android and from my tablet 2 weeks ago. Is there a problem with that?


This app is great. A great way to communicate. But how I wish that the developers could add a sign out feature. So that when I'm using other people's device to open my account. It would not be a hassle for persons like me to worry about our privacy because we know that we logged our account out of that device. Overall this app was great and I do hope the developer would listen to my suggestion. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT😊😊


Before, messenger works OK. Not until I updated it and everytime I try to edit a picture to add it to my story or to send it to my friends, it stops for 20 seconds and then exit itself. It is really annoying. Hope this will be fixed immediately. And plus, my emojis aren't updated. But in terms of reacts in message, reactions are working fine.


I already updated my device to Android 10 (Mi 9 Lite) and sharing button has an issue in every app. When i click on share video button in youtube or share link in chrome, it no longer pop up list of recent people to share in messenger. I've tried reinstalling messenger but issue still persists. //EDIT: After factory reset is everything fine.


I dont know what happened, it is always laggy when I'm using chat heads. It sucks when I'm in game mode, it doesnt notify and the chat heads does not pop up. And in this last update, I am hopinh that this issue might be fixed but does not. By the way, Im using samsung galaxy a50s. Thanks for the response


Why is there always a new problem every time you update the app?? This time: It no longer sends full quality photos through Messenger. If you send a full size 4000x6000 DSLR photo, it cuts it in half in dimentions and gives you a 100th of the quality when zoomed in. Disgusting low resolution jpeg artifacts EVERYWHERE. Messenger has ALWAYS been good to me. NoW this really sucks for me and my friends. Really upset about this. 😡 Please change it back!!!


It works just fine and I've gotten used to how this app works but I very much dislike the fact that I cant access my gallery and all the folders. You can only scroll through what is your most recent photos and even then to find the one ur looking for you might have to scroll for a while. And lately everytime I try to take a picture or edit in the app it crashes and freezes my whole phone.
