Reviews From google play store

This app is alright. Some ideas to make it better. Improve party chat. It would be cool if you can talk & video chat with your friends & family. Imagine having a Netflix movie night with friends & family from all over the world. Watching the same shows or movies. Imagine playing Monopoly online with family & friends & video chatting with them. This app is easy to use. There's a slight delay when recieving messages. Sony focus on improving party chat & watch your sales will double.

This is an awesome app to keep up with your friends on ps4, as a sort of way to 'text' them when you're away. My only complaint is that it stores way too much junk. I had to delete groups, uninstall, and redownload it, as it had racked up 4gb of info. Crazy... Other than that, very handy for chatting, or off-mic communication!

Unusable, but a necessity due to glitches on the console itself that cause you to be unable to access any messages at all, and somehow this mobile app is the only known way to fix it. Requires me to log in every time I open the app. Literally the single largest app on my phone at a whopping 1.7gb (rounded down). Eats up my storage space which in turn reduces overall performance on my phone. Should just be part of the PSN app itself instead of requiring a second app. - Still Vastly Disappointed

If you're inside the app, the app doesn't update messages in real time, like WhatsApp and Discord do, so it's impossible to coordinate a session with a lot of people when everyone has to be refreshing the message group all the time. In addition, the app loses connection to PS Network over 50% of the time. This never happens on Discord or WhatsApp. When you hold a message that has failed to be sent, you only get to copy it. There should be an option to try to send the message again.

It's a an extremly useful app for speaking with online friends when no other option is available. It would be a 5 star if a few things were optimized. Personally, I've had trouble with the notifications. It's way too common that I get a text from one of my friends and I don't get a notification for it. 100% something that should be looked into.

It's blooming annoying. I get notifies that I've got a message and what it says in the notification but soon as I've clicked on it to read it fully the message disappears and won't let me see it. No matter what I do, be it uninstall/reinstall, refresh or so forth it doesn't allow me to see messages. It's only a one specific person so far but it's constantly there. What the hell do I need to do to get this sorted out.

It is a very useful app! Simple design and has the features needed for a player! Although the app itself is indeed useful, I can only give it 4 stars because it does not update in real time, you need to open the app for the conversations to update and sometimes, you still need to wait for the message to arrive for a few minutes. Basically, you receive delayed message and you cannot reply immediately

Useless app since i can't sign into my account, doesn't have that lovely Facebook sign in, learn to make an app that can keep up to par with your console, if I can log in with my console and use that I should be able to do the same with the app, have some common sense

This app is very very good, infact it is one of my most favourite apps! ^_^ a must install on any phone, espwcially for any PlayStation user out there, even if someone no longer owns a PlayStation 4, I would still recommend it, My only issue with this app Sometimes, is that, this app seems to take up more and more space on this device the more it is used, not by much, maybe half a gig to a gig at most... ...Is this normal? Or am I just being ignorant of apps ? Kindest regards Noog πŸ™‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ΆπŸ”₯

All of a click of a button. No annoying keyboard on Playstation that takes hours to type you can make a full paragraph in less than a minute compared to 10 minutes with the Playstation keyboard... The only thing that sucks is it takes a lot of room but it's worth it.

Constantly saying Playstation Network is currently undergoing maintenance, but Playstation website says all services are up and running. App used to work great, but now only works 1% of the time. Cleared cache, uninstalled/reinstalled multiple times; still get the same result. Wi-Fi is not the issue as everything else I use works just fine. Maybe time for an update since the last 1 was back in April? I would give this app 0 stars if I could.

Never notifies me that I've received a message. Constantly says "cannot connect to network." Incorrect timestamps and occasionally even when I've seen messages go through via the playstation itself, it doesnt refresh on the phone. The app used to be amazing and precise, think it just needs an update to get back to business as its borderline unusable now.

Convenient, but unreliable. I love being able to use my PSN messages while away from my system, but I frequently get "Cannot Connect to Network" warnings, and subsequent failed message attempts. This often leads me to restart and try again, or just close it and wait until I get home.

It sometimes takes alot of time to just load up the messages. We don't even have the option to delete a message. If this option to delete a message is added it would be good and also a tick mark that tells that the other person has seen the message sent.

Yes! please keep ripping features out of the main playstation app and turning them into seperate apps to make things more complicated than necessary! i love having to get a whole new app every 6 months to do something i was previously able to do just fine all on one singular app. oh, and having to update like 4 to 6 seperate apps to all keep compatible with each other isnt at all a bit of a developer nightmare, or annoying on the user end whatsoever.

cannot connect to network. Every time I want to read or send a message it can't connect to network and then I have to force close it resend all my messages. This app is a huge pain in the ass, why does there even need to be a separate messenger app Why isn't this just included in the PlayStation app. You would think a company like Sony could make an app that actually worked but this stinks.

It's convenient to be able to check messages without going out of the game or while you're not on the console. The promptness of notifications is fickle though.

I get can't connect to network constantly and have to force close. The timing stamps are never correct it will show I sent a message 12 hours prior to one I responded to. New messages do not come thru if the app is open so I have to remember to force close when I back out. UPDATE NOW my messages aren't showing in the app or console for hours. It's a common complaint and there's no excuse that Sony can't create a proper message app.

although i do experience som lag or it doesnt load that fast when sypu first open the app its good cause you can see which of your friends are online or who has the app as well you can also plan when your group of friends should come online to play its a good way to communicate with friends without having to give out your phone number although i wish that when someone invites a group to a party that those on mobile can also join. voice calling would be a good add on

Its... Ok. Look my main problem with this is because it uses a lot of storage. Why cant i use it in my sd card? It doesn't allow me to transfer it to my SD card assuming that you didn't allow this option so can u just allow it on sd card? I dont see why not. And why does it have to be a separate app than not merging it with the already PlayStation app

I love this app, it's extremely helpful. Although, it's very buggy and it freezes quite often. Half of the time my messages never get sent. Please fix it..

I can never use this app to honestly answer any messages or send any cause the app never seems to work any time I try to send a message it just thinks about sending it for a minute or two then says can't send message.

I am CONTSTANTLY hit with "Cannot Connect to Network." My WiFi and my connection are not to blame. Everything else on my phone has no problem. This app only works half the time. I can't send messages whenever I want to. I always have to wait until the network can connect again. FIX THIS

Recieving messages don't even show up. When I send messages, my friends can see them just fine. When my friends send them to me, i dont recieve any. Fix this please.

It's a dream come true for an online gamer. I play fortnite and now i could check all my friends through my phone whats better than that. I am using this app for about 2 years and till now i have not experienced any difficulties or glitches.

I used to really enjoy the app because, and this is obvious, it made it easy to communicate with those who didn't use mics and you could message while offline on console. however, now I'm noticing the app consistently disconnecting from the network. I have a strong Wi-Fi connection in my home and it still disconnects or cannot connect to the network so I'm constantly force closing and reopening the app to send messages. it's gotten extremely annoying. two stars.

When it works, it's great. But it hasn't worked for days now, just saying "can't connect to network." Not the first time this has happened, and it seems to be happening more frequently.

It's good when it works but keeps saying "no network connection" and failing to send messages and then sending the multiple times.

Doesn't like sending pictures. Doesn't notify the sender that the message failed. A few times recipients received error messages about the image not sending on the rare occasion it decides to even give notice.

Terrible the simple fact that I cant refresh my messages or the connection gets lost ALL THE DAMN TIME this has been a problem for a while and still hasnt been fixed. Also the messages arent loaded in the app in real time as they are on playstation which is also dumb. Uninstalling for sure and would not recommend to ANYONE.

Can No Longer Send Or Recieve Messages Through The App, PS4, Or Website, Can Only Recieve Through PS3, But Not Send, I Can Also See The Notifications Through The App And The PS4 But Messages Shows Nothing, Creating A New Message To A Player Shows It Sends, They Say Don't Recieve It, Then Again No Messages, Even Though I Did Not Leave, No One Can Recieve Messages I Send On Any Platform, It Only Occurs With The Account Associated With The PlayStation App, No Other Accounts On My Consoles Affected

great app but it would be great if you could decrease the time it takes to recieve a message from another persons ps4 and increase the refresh time since i have to keep closing the app and reopening it to refresh the messenger to recieve messages. but otherwise great app!

Although you can text your friends through the app, it doesn't show most your friends on the online tab. However, it does save the messages, but I'd want to see my friends online as well.

Why?? Why do I need to download 3 separate apps, just to control my ps4 from my phone? Google has at least this figured out, and they're not even the first ones. How many people could you afford to employ to figure these scenarios out? My guess is that a lot could be employed, considering how much you're worth. So, FIGURE IT OUT.

Why everytime i dont get on for like 3 days i get signed out and when i enter my password and hit log in. The password box go blank and load aka making so i cant log in. I have to uninstall the app and log back in. And can we talk about how i can text my friend a minute ago but it can say 12 hours ago or i basically texted them yesterday.

a life saver for anybody planning to play a game that doeant have a social media to text to, and it is free for anybody to message away to friends and family, and also it keeps track of everything so you cant get lost in it.

This app is the best for when you are not playing on your Playstation. It's like texting but with your Playstation friends, 5 stars, highly recommend it.

Messages won't send. When you hit send, the send button can no longer be used. You have to constantly close the application in order for anything to work. This application needs a touch up, after closing the application and re-open, you're left in an infinite loading screen that makes you have to close it again. It's good to read messages, but the reply system is Level A Tier garbage.

Update: the update for this app seems to have fixed the problems I was having. Thanks. Keeps crashing (along with other issues) since name change. Ever since I changed my name I'm not getting all the messages coming through the app just some (about half). Every time I open the app it crashes right away only sometimes staying on for a couple minutes but will ALWAYS crash. In addition to that whenever I get sent pictures or links they don't show or work. Please fix this ASAP! 1 star until fixed.

Great app, my only issue with it is that 9 times out of 10 i don't get notified of my messages even though they're all switched on in the settings. Please fix this annoying issue!!!

It's like a true ps4 player dream come true you can just play for example fortnite, and you can text, and even better you can text faster!!

Delayed messages, network claiming not to be connected despite my phone using every other app and internet site with no issues at the same time. Messages that won't send, black screen when trying to share links and images sometimes, the list goes on and on. When the app works it's nice, but it rarely works consistently.

Over the past couple of days this has been very buggy, it won't show me who's online and who I can message and it keeps saying that PlayStation network is undergoing maintenance, please Sony fix the problem and I might rate it to five star

The fact that this app exists instead of merging it with the playstation app is why I'm giving it 1 star. Also it seems like every time I want to use this app I have to log in even if I select the "remember me" option.

Its great and its very convenient to be able to receive and send messages when you are not on your ps4. The reason im giving this app 3 stars is because this problem started where it won't send messages after i use it and have it downloaded for a while so i find myself having to delete and redownload it all the time.

If anyone is having issues with it not loading here's a fix that only takes 10 mins go into your playstation and delete all of your messages with people you dont talk to because if you have like more than 100 messages it will lag this app very badly, whenever you do that the app will work great! hopefully I could help!

the record message needs to be length and at least 2 a 2 minute 15 seconds is not long enough you need to extend it and have the option to change colour of the background for the app otherwise the app is great

Its pretty good, but I wish there was a way to vote kick or kick someone, Because someone who we don't want in the chat won't leave and we have no way to get rid of them. Please add a feature to kick people.

It's fine but I can't adjust the settings within the app anymore. It just says my connection has been lost whenever I try to go into the settings. The messages still work so I know I'm still connected.

App constantly loses connection and frequently needs to be closed out and reset. Occasionally I will have to re log into my psn account mid conversation.

Worked fine on the phone, and had recieved everything fine until I had trued sending stuff on the PS4 to people, like screenshots and such. All of my conversations were gone, and I didn't have the ability to even open my messages icon on my PS4. No coue if it is something with this or my PS4, but seems to only happen when I use this app, so I really don't know what to think.

This app, while still very useful, only gets 3 stars because it used to be part of the base PlayStation app, which has since been butchered down to over 3 different apps instead of having the single app that it used to be

Used to be great, but since after the last update just a fews ago... Players Met list isn't being updated since the 11/10/2019 Pls fix the bug Thanks

I have downloaded this app several different times thinking maybe it was my device but, Everytime I use this App I get my message notifications on PS4 but cannot open messages on PS4 & all of my messages disappear then they also dissapear from my app? then my friends don't even get my messages until several hours later and it's like what I did send before was lost in a black hole & they never got my message! Please Fix ASAP!

was working like perfect as if I was on a PS4 now when I send or receive messages I only see a blank white screen for only one friend. it needs to be fixed. unacceptable. UPDATE STILL NOT WORKING NOW IT DOESN'T SEND OR RECEIVE MESSAGES POST LAST UPDATE. UNACCEPTABLE why in the world is it working perfectly for years and then just stop? seriously who is doing the updates? fire them. hell fire them out a cannon into the sun!

The URL censoring ruined this service for me. I use it to communicate with clan members and now I can't send harmless links to them. I can't even communicate with them via other services because I can't send them a link to the other services. Over the top censoring.

Why do i need to download a different playstaion app to access a different feature? Just put all the features into one app and stop trying to squeeze every dime out of us

For once I like to NOT see the "Can't connect to network" error. This app is unintuitive and straight up garbage.

The apps work fine but why cant there just be one app that shows you all the mobile playstation features? Why do I have to switch applications when I want to message someone?

Was good but as of late some chats say i have message in them but when i go into them i cant see anything... white screen. Please tell me how to fix.

I love the app, I would enjoy it more if there was an option to see and join party chats. been away from a ps4 so long but I like communicating with my friends verbally. please find a way to integrate this into the apps program. I feel you'll get even more downloads and higher star ratings.

the app is ok. only issue i always have is, it loses connection randomly. I'm connected to WiFi and it will still lose its connection. fix it please.

You know, this app is okay. It'd be better if it didn't randomly log out of my psn and then refuse to let me type my password back in! But it's average.

I love this app it is really handy when messaging groups so I can play and also send a message on my phone instead of having to get out of the game and message someone. I love it, 5 stars

I like the fact ill be able to message my friends on psn but its hard to have the app on my phone when you first download it its quite resonable on space but it goes up way up where my phone bugs out cause i dont have any space on my phone i think having all the messages attached to the account on a cloud would be alot easier on the space and loading easier to get to and have instead of downloading all the messages to the phone

Your app keeps crashing for unknown reasons, I'll rate it one star until it gets fixed. It wasn't doing this before the updates.

Its pretty good because you could access your playstation way quicker but the layout is pretty bright and the regular playstation thing should allow you to join a party threw the phone.

PS Messages works fine when you stay on one account, but when i sign out and go to log back in/go onto another account, the email stays, but the password you entered just disappears, and it doesn't sign me in at all! Tried reinstalling, but that didn't do anything. Please fix!

i love this app, especially when I'm in a match and I can't check my messages i go straight to PlayStation message and reply to anyone, I don't know what would i do with out this app.

The App is good but sometimes you get some network error,need some stability on this,but its a nice app and easy to use,i recommended.

my messaging has been broken for over a month. I cant open messages it just deletes them and if I get group messages it kicks me out of group and I'm there in an empty group now. no fix found online. no answers from calling tech. hard to get into groups without messaging. doesnt work here nor on ps4. just broken. have done rebuild database. started after deleting old messages from box and hasn't worked since.

I'd rate it lower if I could. App lags. "Can not connect to network" constantly.

seems like I'm not the only one with this problem, i can't seem to send messages on my ps4 or on this app. it just glitches and put me in a chat room by myself(PS4) on the app it shows that i have send it but my friend does to recieve it. i hope sony patches this up soon. i wonder if it has to do with the name changw πŸ€”

I can't log in after I loged out. Every time I enter my password correctly go through the corresponding sign in process. Before it completes the sign-in process it delete my password and not signing in. The app is great until this happened. This is stupid that you need the PlayStation app and the messenger app. For the messeger app not have this problem. I find this extremely annoying, just make it one app if you're handing out these problems.

horrible performance. doesn't let me sign in, cannot connect to network, white screen and connection error time-out (although PSN services are supposedly up and running) and no, my internet connection is great. everything else works great except for the 21st century PS apps. thanks, Sony!

it used to work like a dream but recently I keep getting an error saying cannot connect to network and my messages wont send. fix it and I'll be straight up to 5 stars. also wouldn't hurt to be able to send videos through messages and be able to save them as well. just a thought

its ok doesnt always want to stay connected to the network when the app wont send i go through my ps4. other than the connection issues it works when it wants to.

9/16/19: Constantly can't connect to network. Has to keep closing and opening to send messages. Delayed messages and won't refresh friend list or messages. The app is broken.

I couldn't care less about how good this app is. I already have two PS4 apps now I need a 3rd why. I hate Facebook for pulling this poo. Now Sony thinks it can do it too. I'm almost done with Sony. I dont jump through hoops for nobody nevermind a super Corp that has everything but still wants my data and anything I do say online. I guess this way is easier to spy on people with it being only messages. Something the actual PS4 app should be doing. it told me I have messages but need to download.

While i like the idea of being able to chat with friends outside of using the console, my only complaint; the app cannot be moved to external storage

App crashes every few weeks and you cant send recieve or read messages on even your actual playstation for sometimes weeks until it temporarily fixes itelf. Horrible app

Its an amazing app ive used for about 2 years the only thing that bothers me is that you can't log out you have to delete the app and download it again i have 2 account its really annoying

A lot of the time nothing within the app will load until I close it and reopen, then nothing will load when I click a conversation, all I see is a white screen, often can't open images and my replies will disappear without sending or fail to send or send multiple times, so many issues with this app

its a dream come true for gamers on a playstation! when ur out and about u can see what ur friends have messaged. im on ps4 and people text me pretty often and on this app i can read the messages and text back!

Easy to use and quicker to type messages especially when your in a game like zombies and can't pause the game.

The app barley works with wait times of up to 5 minutes to send a message also it's very, VERY easy to get banned all u have to do is send a vulgar message like f***

this used to be a really great app, until it started glitching out by not letting me send any pictures, like the preview or send button will pop up for 2 seconds and then disappear. I have to trick the app into the making the option pop up again just to send a picture please fix this.

the app takes a lot of storage for no reason and it takes forever for a message to send. also half the messages you try and send dont send

Really bad, I thought it was my connection being bad but it turns out this messaging app has some issues meaning the messages come in slow :/ Don't reccommend. Just annoying

Sound is broken. Has been broken. Useless app unless you want to refresh every time to check for messages.

Amazing application, only issue is that whenever I try to block or report someone it says I'm signed out and doesn't complete my request.

when i try to send messages, my app freezes and crashes. I've tried updating everything, still sub par from playstation.

This stays at 1 star till you stop this app from logging me out. I got message in one of my chats in notifications and yet still ask me to log in? And fix PlayStation Store app on PS4. I'm tired of it crashing the PS4. Keeps telling me off for turning it off at the main when it's your app that keeps randomly crashing and I'm forced to hold the power button to be able to do anything at all.

It's a nice app to be able to tell when someone wants you to get on. However, it takes a long time to send messages or pictures through the app.

Continously lose connection and cant send messages. will have wifi or 4 bars of service still the same out come connection error I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times any help would be appreciated

Signed in to app, asked for verification code which I requested at least 3 times, nothing received by text or email. πŸ™

this app would be a million times better if it had more admin privileges for messaging. ie, removing or banning people from group chats, adding or removing privileges from members of said groupchat to ban or kick people from the groupchat, just privileges in general BECAUSE IM TIRED OF HAVING TO MAKE A NEW GROUP BECAUSE SOMEONE WONT LEAVE AND I CANT REMOVE THEM.

Writing messages on Playstation (especially PS3) is tough. With this app, you've got a keyboard and you know exactly what you are writing! Thanks for spending your time on the development of this app!

this app is so easy to use it helps me to know how many of my friends are online, when my playstation is glitching out, i love this app

Love it but its currently having issues on wifi. "Can't connect to internet" constantly comes up yet other apps & ps4 connected & working just fine. Very frustrating cuz messages keep failing on galaxy s9
