    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.

  2. Jessica Netzel-avatar

    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

  4. Ana Merkurieff-avatar

    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?

  5. Cloyd Vieja-avatar

    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.

    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.

  11. Cyndi Salmon-avatar

    Suddenly Disappointed in this Messenger app. I've never had any issues with it until today when I tried to update. I got a message that told me the Beta Program is full. Frustrating! I use this app all the time. I'm at a complete stop from being able to use it now. I guess this Covid 19 virus has made everyone want to connect using the Messenger app for now. Funny how people never were interested until now. The app can't handle the overload of users. Now I'm kicked off! Ugh!

    Bug report. When I try to share an image from another app to messenger, it had been failing the past 24 hours. Eg. Say I have a photo or link in any app. Then I press share, share to Bob. That makes it open messenger. But instead of previewing to send to Bob, it jsut shows a list of my recent conversations. If I pick the recipient I want, it just opens their contact. The image or link doesn't appear though

    I absolutely love this app however yesterday it stopped allowing me to share photos from my gallery. I have a Samsung galaxy 10. This is the 2nd time in 6 months that I've had issues with sending pictures. Please fix this bug. Additional info. Looks to be an issue sharing with messenger in general. I couldn't share a website today either.

  14. darlene o.-avatar

    Ever since I got this phone, nothing but issues. It doesn't type what I put in without fixing constantly, making up it's own words. When I talk text alot of times I have to try 5 or 6 times before it'll type out my words. VERY annoying!! I've never had issues like this with any of my phones. Not happy at all with it.

  15. Google User-avatar

    in the last month or two, messenger has been severely glitching. I'll get the vibrate about a new message, but the chat heads wont show that I need to check them. Or I'll be typing a message to someone, and messenger will re open on top of itself, and I'll have to start in the new messenger window, with the old one still under it with my unfinished message. or I'll be scrolling down my newsfeed, or reddit, or whatever, and all the sudden the chat heads will randomly start opening.

  16. Turnt SNACO-avatar

    Share feature in other apps no longer works with Messenger. It just loads the normal friends list and doesn't give any further prompts to share anything. Also, the "send a local image" gallery in Messenger (below the chat) used to have a button to look at all of your files by folder, but no longer does, only showing your photos in order starting with the most recent. This is especially inconvenient since the Share feature in apps like Gallery no longer work, as mentioned above.

  17. David Webber-avatar

    I'm using an Samsung A70, and until a couple of days ago you use to be able to share files or website addresses or pictures direct from you gallery but now you can't, if you try and share it takes you to messenger but doesn't give you the option to share it with anyone, I thought it was just me but I've checked with other people and they are experiencing the same issues.

  18. juiceSZN-avatar

    Why can't I share links in Messenger now? I've always been able to. Now for 3 days, I go to share something, click to share via Messenger, Messenger opens then immediately closes. Doesn't matter how many times I try. Opens...immediately closes. Then I tried sharing the same link to the same person, but via text message and it works fine like it always does. Even uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger. Still whack. Never changed anything in my settings either. What's wrong?! Help meeee!!!

  19. Josue Pacheco-avatar

    My favorite and main messaging app! I love to share practically anything I get my hands on, pictures, videos, screenshots, songs, etc... But as of recent can't share anything! Please fix! Other notorious messaging app with the green icon doesnt give me this prob. If this is not fixed, gonna have to change my main messaging app from the blue icon to the green one...

    This is an amazing app and a very helpful system. This app messenger has proved me and my colleagues right over the past years, and even when we thought it had peaked it rose even higher. I love how you can personalize each contacts messages with a certain color, and the different notification sound are a great addition. The video and normal calls work perfectly and have never failed. I couldn't possibly recommend this app more.👍👍👍

  21. Rachel Holl-avatar

    I used to be able to select pictures or video from my gallery and share them to messenger but after the update I can no longer do that or share links from web pages. Basically I can only share something if I open the app and select it from there. Very disappointing and takes longer to share things. Please fix this so I can give 5 stars!

  22. Emma T-avatar

    Some times when your on a video call the other caller gets really low so you can't hear them and then you have to hang up and call back to hear them. Pictures and messages work great it's just video calling that doesn't always work the greatest. And sometimes you don't know someone has sent you a message because it doesn't notify you.

    Junk App gets WORSE every single time its "Improved" by updating. Removing it from my phone now. The last update was the final straw for me. I can no longer select a pic or video from my phones gallery and send it through Messenger to someone. Now I have to use messenger to find it, and if it isn't a recently created file I have to go through every single pic and video to get to it. No matter what I click to share, messenger simply loads itself. ZERO option to send ANYTHING. TOTAL GARBAGE!

  24. Mimi Colin-avatar

    I manage two profiles and it's really hard to switch back and forth. I keep getting a message " Something went wrong. Try again later." No matter what I do, close app,clear cache, restart device, it will not work until it feels like it. One is a personal and the other is business. Please fix this issue!!!

  25. Alec-avatar

    I've never reviewed messenger before, but generally I like it. They change their emojis and stuff a lot, sometimes that doesn't look too good. Recently I haven't been able to share any pictures over messenger. Whenever I try, the app starts and then immediately fails before opening completely. My shares work with every other app. I updated but no help. Otherwise works as intended. Send messages to people, emojis, gifs, need wifi.

  26. Yay Tayag-avatar

    The app was very useful but sometimes, its notification sound is not working. I've already got messages without knowing because I didnt hear its notification sound. I have to constantly look at my phone to check if I have received a new message.

  27. Adam Kulcsar-avatar

    Since I've done a factory reset on my phone (Nokia 6.1, Android 10), I cannot set the notifications of the Messenger just to vibrating. I've tried to set to no sound or to the default notification sound (and the default notification sound is set to nothing), but after a few minutes the application overwrites the setting, and sets back to app provided sound. This is working very well with other messaging applications, so I don't know why is Messenger so agressive to overwrite this setting.

  28. Ness Haven-avatar

    Usually a great app, I use it all the time, but after the last update I can no longer share anything by messenger anymore. Photos from my gallery won't send, if I see something on Facebook that I want to share with one person it won't send. It's not that I get a notification of message not sent, it just won't connect.

  29. Bianca White-avatar

    I have contacted Messenger numerous times and they don't get back with me OR fix my problem! When I try to share anything from any other app through messenger, it does NOT attach it. It only takes me to the conversation but the attachment is not there. I have tried everything possible. And yes, I can share whatever through other apps!

  30. :Þ-avatar

    Was working fine on my Galaxy s8, works terribly on my s10. Everytime I try to video chat with my bf (he has iPhone, I have Samsung), my messenger freezes and it would ask me to either wait or force close the app. It also freezes when choosing a picture from within the app to send to someone. Everything was working fine before the update. Please fix it to where my s10 is compatible with messenger or I'll be uninstalling very soon.

  31. xp miata-avatar

    I had been using this app as my primary message app. Cant anymore. I am in three or four group chats and we share stuff from fb and the web in general constantly . After the last update I can no longer "share" links etc through the app. When you hit share , then select messenger , it opens your list of contacts and prevents but offers No share icons anymore . Basically is now worthless for me .

    I use messenger instead of dialing, it is super easy and I don't have any missed calls from my friends and family. Easy to do multiple things and I have been able to spend more time on the phone while doing multiple things. Thank you for your time and help, I love messenger!!

  33. Melissa-avatar

    Can't share anything anymore from the internet or other apps. When you go to share it just pulls it up and nothing is there. Another issue when you click to share a picture during a conversation any photos that you deleted in your gallery still shows up with an error thumbnail. Lately it also has been sluggish and freezes and causes other apps to freeze if the thing pops up for a conversation.

  34. MCEd the thing-avatar

    It's pretty good and all, but here are some suggestions. First and foremost, AN OPTION TO DISABLE CALLS. I can not stress this enough. People spam call me pretty often, and no blocking them isn't a solution, they're my family. Please let this happen, like at least minimize the call or just get a notif, not fill the whole screen. Another one, better photo navigation. I have thousands of pictures, if I wanted to send a specific pic, then I'd have to scroll for a while. Please address these.

    The recent update made my Share to messenger not working. When I choose a photo, video or recording from my phone's gallery or file manager and click "Share to messenger", The app just opens and it doesn't let me choose who to share my file with. When I asked my friend, he also experiences the same problem. Please fix it. I can't send anything in messenger.

  36. Dan Fong-avatar

    Since the latest update I can no longer share pictures / music from any location / source other than from Camera! You click on the picture, click messenger icon as share option, click recipient and then it just takes you into that conversation thread - no attachment!!! What's going on??? Tried resetting preferences, clearing cache - nothing works.

  37. Ellie Johnson-avatar

    The glitch causing the chat bubbles to close and force me to bring up the whole chat system and stop what I am doing to respond is still happening. I never had to leave what I was doing before recent updates. As of 3/19 I cant forward photos in messanger it wont work. It just opens the chat to the person and doesnt let me send the photo. The above issue still happening. Wth happened?

  38. Dana McMahan-avatar

    Ever since my last update, both facebook and messenger are messing up and not letting me share pictures externally from fb on messenger. I uninstalled them both to try to reinstall. Now, neither of them will allow me to log back in at all, saying I have attempted too many logins (I tried a whopping total of 3 times with the correct login info, 2 on fb and 1 on messenger).

  39. Toni Estorga-avatar

    It seems everyone is having some sort of problems with this app. I've e-mail the FB Messenger app developers several times but have not received a response at all in a lil over a weeks time. I've uninstalled the app n reinstalled the app but still having trouble with the messenger app, it actually made the app & my phone slower as well. So it did get worse. Please, please fix the messenger app.

  40. Marc Gobeil-avatar

    Sharing a photo from another app to Messenger has stopped working entirely. Before that, the photo sharing experience was already buggy ever since they introduced the share with multiple people UI ages ago; offering no way to proceed after sharing something except closing the app and coming back to it. Clearly this app (at least the android version of it) is not a priority for Facebook, if such a critical user journey is left to rot like this.

  41. Noushin Laila-avatar

    Cannot share picture or any thing else using the share button. Cannot copy parts of messages which is very annoying! Messages keep popping up from the chat head even after seeing and replying to those said messages. Shows online when I am not. Messages are not showing chronologically! Earlier messages are at the end and later messages go towards the top! Uninstalled and installed again. Issues remain!

    It is great for communication but this past few months i encounter that im always offline to others when i close my apps. Unlike before even if i close my apps i can still receive messages from my contacts. Now i can only receive their messages when i open my app. Why is this so???

  43. Raghad Idilibi-avatar

    Great! Amazing for messaging. There is one bug I have been experiencing. When I to share something from outside of messenger (e.g. Youtube), I am not able to, I press on the messenger logo and it just brings me back to the page I was on. It be greatly appreciated if you fix this. Thank you!

    This is used to be a good ap. But the newest update is terrible. Im not receiving all of my messages only certain ones. And also I have an unlimited phone plan, and I usually have a great connection but for some reason the call cuts off. There are also times where I to send vids but nope. And not only that but I've even tried to send links from YouTube or Instagram and for some damn reason it won't let me. The app used to be good until all of these issues happened. This really needs to be fixed.

    Use to be able to send a message to as many of my contacts as I wanted. But now, can only send to say 10, the rest of my contacts dont come up! I use to be able to just go down my list and press send! That facility has now gone! Dont know why or what has changed?? Was brilliant!!!!!

    I can't share pics from my gallery anymore, nor can I share videos from YouTube, or even from my bitmoji... it's like I can't share anything JUST TO messenger since updates. AND it keeps telling me that I need wifi to install, but its installed, and I have my settings set to update and download over my network, not wifi. So.... I'm confused as to what's going on. It's quite frustrating, and a pain in the butt to have to scroll all the way down through my photos to share a picture.

  48. Anna Crawford-avatar

    Everytime I go to "externally share" or even go to a photo in my phone and click share through messenger it doesn't let me send. It goes to the app, then the screen of what it would be to choose to send a message to QUICKLY goes away and then it's just the regular message screen of my conversations. Very annoying. There's no updates for the app either, at the moment.

  49. Kate B-avatar

    Can no longer share audio clips from the Samsung Voice recorder. You can click share, select the app, but it no longer takes you to the share screen, just the generic chat window. Chat heads have been buggy lately. App has been running slow. Not loving it. Now have to use other apps to send recordings to friends.

  50. Sarah Prescott-avatar

    Everytime you 'update' you mess up the app by taking away things that were running smoothly before you 'fixed' the app or say you are making a 'better' experience for consumers. I can't send anything from other apps like YouTube, I can't even send a video it just shuts the app completely. Way to go on that job...

    I have never had a huge issue with this app until the last update. I have an android phone and now for some reason i cannot share to messenger from anything anymore. I have to either open messenger and acroll through my ENTIRE photo gallery or save the link and then paste it into the messenger text box. Please fix this as its so frustrating

  52. M Laker1-avatar

    I have an Android turbo and just started having an issue sending pictures from my gallery trying to use messenger. In the past I would select picture and select messenger thus being able to add a message to the picture then hit send beside contacts name. Now it won't even give option to send but takes me to my messenger inbox. I've used this process for several years and it is definitely messed up. Please repair it. Thanks

  53. Bryan Costan-avatar

    its okay. but the thing is, why can't we send files like doc. ppt. and more via phone messenger. the older version allowed the user to share or send files but now it is gone. In addition, the reminders and poll feature is missing. I think these are essentials especially when doing online group projects. Wishing that you will take consideration of my opinion.

  54. I Am JuSHiuS-avatar

    Well I've been using this app for years and suddenly this problem came a few weeks ago, The messenger feature called "Nicknames" Disappeared on my app and I don't see any solution in the internet, most likely a rare bug? I'm not comfortable not being able to see the nicknames of my friends or being able to edit them so pls hear me out and give me an idea how to solve this.

  55. AJ Zangaro-avatar

    I had an issue in which floating widgets would not pop up. I tried using the button to open a chat head but it would still not open. I tried force stopping the app and pressing the button again. It's still would not open. It kept telling me I had to allow it to do that by switching something on in my settings which I had done multiple times over. It would not open a chat head even with the setting on. So then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. So here I am now. It won't let me reinstall.

  56. david arreola-avatar

    Messenger has been the best way to communicate with each other without being superficial or skeptical simply put... this app is AMAZING!!! I recommend it to everyone who appreciates good quality and great response time. A game changer for sure.

  57. Dorian Wills-avatar

    Image sharing is broken. Up until today I could share images from the web or text messages. Now it just opens Messenger and does nothing. I have to save the file to my device then open Messenger to share. I cleared data, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, installed pending update for my Note 9, still broken. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SEND MEMES?!?

  58. Kri Ss-avatar

    Can you guys please stop updating this app... It was working perfectly fine 2 weeks ago, since that feature by feature stop working. Sharing photos to couple persons is not possible, opening notifications usually take around 30 seconds now, if you press bubble with person on side of screen it's not working but after 20-30sec it will open randomly, sometimes 3-4 times... Please give me back old messenger :) (updated messenger on Oneplus 6T)

  59. Solo Stud-avatar

    Since a few days (last update?) the "share with -> Messenger" function, while being one of the most important and used option, doesn't work at all. I find such a huge glitch unacceptable for a popular application made by such a huge and experienced company. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame.

  60. David Schutlz-avatar

    Up untill 3-19-20 you could go to your photo album, select the pics you wanted to share, click the share icon and choose tge Facebook Messenger icon. That would take you to the list of contacts on messenger. Then you chose send to who ever you want. No it just goes back to the photo you chose. Not just on my phone either.

    Gets stuck and doesn't connect plenty of times and today out of the blue when I selected a photo to share out of my gallery it didn't let me share it in the app, doesn't even let me select the app sometimes out of the other apps. I can share the same.photo with any other app like Viber or what's up. So it's messenger's problem and it's extremely irritating.

  62. Paweł Antonik-avatar

    Sadly sharing media files "sound clips" after last update is impossible. I'm selecting file clicking share in messenger the messenger pop's up but there is no longer option to send file to selected person. Also selecting file from the conversation level is impossible too. After clicking on file it's automatically openning photo gallery so no option to choose from sound file. The option was available yesterday before the recent update.

  63. Laura Baker-avatar

    Messenger very bad lately !!!! Won't let me put anything to my messenger lately !!!! Don't know why !!!!! Is there a limit as to how much one can keep in their messenger ??????

    So.....this has been a great app to send messages to at least 100 people Individually.....but after last update, I can only send to 43 people. I do inspirational messages every morning to at least 150 people but now can only do 43!!!!! Also when getting a video call, I have to wait until it stops ringing to see who it is!!!!

  65. Paige Caplin-avatar

    When I receive a notification and I click the message it takes a good 10 seconds for the window to actually open and if you dont wait and go into the messenger app and click the message again you'll get double the conversation open so once you close one window you have to close another window. So you get double of that one conversation and then you get all the message notifications all at once popping up like a virus.

  66. T Moore-avatar

    I'm not sure what happened within the last few days, but I can NO LONGER share pictures from within my photo APP to Messenger! This is a huge inconvenience and feature takeaway. Huge! Please fix this!!! Update: I can no longer share ANYTHING to Messenger (it's not just photos). This is bad!

    have to quit the app and go to my gallery to attach a photo bc the option in app was only a jumbled mess of the most recent with no way to get albums... And even then it could get stuck on the last image if you don't back out instead of swipe closed... But the worst is Now I can't even do that... The images refuse to send.... Also copy paste constantly gets stuck on the last thing too... This app is garbage for images... Honestly I should convince everyone I know to use whatsapp

  68. seveik-avatar

    The app itself is absolutely great. The only thing I hate about it is one: emojis, that used to be reaaally great in 2017 or something like that, when emojis were just looking fresh, cute and nice. Not, not only they look much worse, but also reactions to messages are different. The reaction emojis are even uglier. Animations are so cliché, they look like there weren't any graphic designers in Facebook. I just hate them. Second: lack of cool filters for camera, but thats not that big problem.

  69. Audrey Bathory-avatar

    The latest version not allowed me to share pictures from Google and YouTube by clicking "share" button. Please fix this bug as it's very annoying. Update: I uninstalled and reinstalled again, and it became worse. I can't even use the apps, it pop out automatically after I clicked in. Please fix

  70. EmSprollie-avatar

    This app is good n easy enough to use but i hate the notifications. I use messenger on 3 devices, and I'll get a notification on all 3!! Even if i have the chat open on one... WHY? Its super annoying, especially if you switch off Internet to not get them on one device and turn it back on later you get bombarded with notifications of messages you've already seen... The styles thing needs to be fixed cause you just keep accidentally making it pop up while typing. Calling quality is a disaster too!

    I usually use messenger for most calls and messages and to send pictures and to share news articles and web pages. Lately, when you hit the share button from Google, chrome, a news site.. when you choose to use messenger to share it, it will not allow it.... it starts to and goes right back to what you want to share, even from pictures. I dont know if this is a messenger issue, a Samsung issue or a verizon issue!

  72. Petar Sremkin-avatar

    After the last update i have an issue where i cannot share things from other apps to the messenger. For example YouTube or Facebook. After i click share and select messenger it just opens it and does nothing, just opens the last thing you had there, like you minimized it and just maximized it. Please fix this as soon as possible please. Xiaomi mi 9t pro all software up to date.

Could you guys please add in a select feature when wanting to delete multiple chats in the next update if possible thank you.

  74. gho yap phang-avatar

    Not sure whether you guys will even bother to see this, but recently the apps occurs many bugs such as it won't pops out new messages immediately even we hear the sound. Also, Im unable to share photos or videos externally as it won't even direct to the app itself. I hope it will be fixed at the next few updates

  75. C Johnson-avatar

    Great app before recent updates, now it will not allow me to send photos directly on Messenger, I have to go to the app to send whereas in the past I was able to go to my gallery and send directly. I also can no longer send Inspirational quotes/meme to my story, I have to login to FB to send which is annoying. I uninstalled/reinstall the app and still having the same problems.

    Its always freezing, black screens with no video, always blurry, video freezes and voice does not sync with video and after it does connect, this appears: "Connecting video", after it was connected already....its a disaster of an app!!!!

    The swipe gesture that used to minimise chat-head windows now only works when the chat is open over another app. It's a small thing, but annoying in the context of a gesture-heavy OS. It also means that when in a chat over the home screen, gestures cannot be used at all to open other apps.

    horrific. If i try to send a video or photo is jsut tells me my message can't be sent, can't download either either. Videos go black after watching them and i have to restart the app to get back to the conversation. Edit: It's incredible that more time passes and they fix 1 bug, but make 7 more. Reacts to messages now are jittery, and they glitch out the entire message as if I pressed it a few times. Videos freeze, and pressing any link sends me to the play store messenger download.

    Chat head notifications work sporadically at best, and half the time clicking on a chat head won't open the chat anymore. Regularly have to force stop app or uninstall to get a temporary fix. Received a call in app, no notification or anything, just phone ringing and buzzing with no way to tell what was going on - had to turn phone off cold to stop. This has happened twice since last update.

  84. Sarah Northrup-avatar

    Wont let me update. Wont let me bring up bubbles from my phone notification menu. Messages freeze on my screen. Cant share things to messenger. I have to actually open the app to get the chat bubbles to pop up and then I'm spammed with notifications from the bubbles. Everytime I try to take a photo from the app, it freezes. Please fix this.

  85. Talas Raven-avatar

    Messenger used to work fine up until about a month ago. Now when I try to make reminders the option is missing entirely and the only options I get are location (send to work okay) and poll that is saying that it's unsupported in this version of messenger. On top of that, when other users make reminders they're invisible to me. Please fix this or revert it to a previous version that worked properly.

  86. Dylan Snyder-avatar

    Performs its function but has too much going on. I want to message and video chat with people. All the other stuff just gets in the way. And ads in the messaging app? Come on. Ads in Facebook is one thing but in the messenger app is a bit too far I think.

  87. Angeline B-avatar

    When I download this app it comes off,like i have load it back on to my screen again and it happens every time I restart my phone. Like what's up with that. Plus I think that somebody broken my home that maybe lives around me and did something to my phone. Because I don't think that lucky phones are NOT with BELL_WIFI, this is what it says in my phone. One time I have to go out for a bit and when I came back home it said that in my phone under some numbers and that BELL_ WIFI. WHY AND WHO IS IT?

    First of all, everytime I or a friend send a voice message usually says "error" on it! I really hate that, because I like messenger and I use it all the time... Also the notifications are, like, awful because when I get a message it shows me the notification later like after a minute and even the sound of the notification! It's so annoying...And it's constantly showing that I have a notification and when I open the app I have no new messages...FIX THIS DEAR MESSENGER

    Generally been good but the lack of polls is annoying. Why remove them? The latest update has completely screwed up the app. I get the same notification about the same message several times, don't get notifications about other messages, chat heads vanish in the middle of typing a message. Get it fixed this is ridiculous.

    I have a Samsung galaxy 8 , when I use Facebook everything runs smoothly. But when I hop on messenger it displays " connecting " and does not let me send messages .I can only receive messages instantly but when I try to send a message it displays its " connecting " and it wont refresh my messages,the sent messages takes about 10 to 15 minutes to receive but i recieve incoming messages instantly, I thought it was my data carrier but its not I have an unlimited data and other social app work fine

  95. Risk Master-avatar

    I perpetually have one notification that, regardless of what I do to try to get rid of it, never goes away. There's always a notification on the "people" tab, and when I click on that, it shows a notification on the "add contacts" tab. When I click on that, there is no hint as to why there was a notification, so I have no means of getting rid of it.

I just want to see the pop up and the LED light without being bombarded by annoying notification audio.

  97. unicat *-avatar

    Video messaging features completely fizzled out for me after a while and would cause my phone to freeze for a good few minutes. When I decided to delete and redownload the app it wouldn't let me sign in or change my password, stating I was doing actions 'deemed abusive or disallowed' and then kicked me out for spamming it trying to get into my own account. Messenger is terrible, Facebook is terrible and I would not recommend this app even to my worst enemy.

    What is wrong with this app??? I just don't get it!!! I use this apo for a long time. It has been bothering me with many problems since a while. For example: Nicknames exchange, chat colours change, chat themes change, chat emojis change, message notifications don’t appear, messages disappear even though no one removes it etc. So I decided to uninstall it and then install it again. But after I did this, the problems seem to increase even more! So many emojis have disappeared! Plz do something!

    It has a few features that shows that it's not fully soul-less. However, it's bloated, it's heavy, some functions are hidden and, I'll repeat it for emphasis, IT'S EXTREMELY HEAVY, extremely slow in some basic phones. Not bad, it's genuinely not bad, but this ain't no breakthrough either.
