    It's a great app that lets you talk to friends on PSN and is much easier than going and turning on your PlayStation just to chat. Though I would ask that you guys please add a couple features like PSN chat rooms and video/voice chat other than just messages. Also with messages where it shows the time sent and received, it's very buggy, I'll send a message and it'll say a random completely different time. For example I'll send a message at 10:00 pm and it'll say 9:43 am or something like that.

  2. guest-avatar

    دانلود This app is great for talking to friends and seeing your messages on the go, and I love the range that it allows you to message, however I have one suggestion, a dream feature if you will. And that is an app to join PlayStation parties from a mobile device, in my opinion that will complete this app.

  3. guest-avatar

    دانلود برنامه It's a great app. Use it all the time when I don't feel like turning my PS4 on. I would suggest it if you have a newer phone. I have a LG Stylo 5, and it works perfectly. I had a LG Stylo 4+,( Just like a year difference between manufacturing ) and I would open the app, and it would cause my phone to shut down, turn on, freeze, and restart. So, if you plan on getting this app, get a newer phone. But in all, a very great app.

  4. guest-avatar

    apk Goodapp.There are some glitches sometimes like when you message but it is way way faster to message than on your PS4. It's helpful when you don't want to message from your PS4 like if your in the middle of a game you don't have to leave or suspend the game when you message and you won't get kicked for not being active. In all there are some drawbacks but the speed and the easily use of it more than makes up for the drawbacks. I hope this helps if your looking for an easier way to message on PS4.

  5. guest-avatar

    This apps works great for me and is easier to use instead of having to text with a controller. Although, sometimes I won't receive messages until 2-5 minutes after they were already sent. That's the only issue that I've had, otherwise very useful!

  6. guest-avatar

    Is not a bad app for the ps3/4 I do enjoy using it. You can keep track of the conversation that you are having through out the day with your friends or even groups. Only saw a couple of problems, small delays on msgs and one other is if I created a group I have no control over it everyone can add whoever they want ,it would be great if you guy put an option to not let other add without consent or to take the off the group.

    this app is okay, I cant connect to the PS net some times and I can't use the Playstation Party Chat within the groups, A major Disapointment once that gets implemtented I'll give a star and when those bugs in the PS net are patched I'll give the other Can't send gifs and any attempt turns them into Jpegs or Pngs Can not delete messages sad that that hasnt been corrected in the playstation 4's life span

    This app is a miracle as it can solve muptiple communication problems. For example the app can help people who dont have a mic communicate through the Playstation.It can also leave messages for friends like warnings,messages for when their online,and more. Basically this app has more than messages to it despite its title. (Just need to fix a message delay.)

  9. guest-avatar

    Lady Bunnerkins


    - Cannot add/remove members from group chat - Cannot send gifs - Cannot mute chat threads - Notification on app/ps is inconsistent - Sending links is hit or miss - Messaging can be delayed by a few minutes, out substantially by a few hours - No indication that messages have been recieved or viewed This is a bare bones perfunctory app.

  10. guest-avatar

    It's a decent messaging app. You can see who's online, what they're playing etc. Idk why there are 3 separate apps but w/e. And due to how Playstation has decided to do their messaging system on PS4 (after a past update) u can't actually delete any of your messages. The app caches ALL of your messages & pictures for EVERY message thread u have. There is no delete. Which makes the app eat up a TON of space because it saves screenshots & picture indefinitely which starts to accumulate over time.

  11. guest-avatar

    This app is very useful, but when it comes to performance, it sucks. there is a bug where you don't get messages or send messages. this happens to me at least once a day and it's very annoying cuz I have to restart my phone to fix it. so I'm saying it's a solid 5 star of they fix that bugs or other small ones.

  12. guest-avatar

    Works as intended for me, even if there is some delay to get notifications sometimes, its probably more due to the network and not the app. Thank you for this great communication tool.

  13. guest-avatar



    It's a pretty normal app, you can use it to message friends and whatnot but the question I have with it is why is there a seperates app to message people in the first place? I use the Xbox app and that has it all rolled into one. Why can't Sony do the same thing?

  14. guest-avatar

    The only thing you can do in this app is send messages. I really don't understand why the chat feature wasn't implemented in the PlayStation app. This way you need to install both the messages app and the PlayStation app because you can't do basic stuff like sending or accepting friend requests or viewing other peoples profiles in this app since the app forces you to install the PlayStation app to do those things.

  15. guest-avatar

    Often getting issues saying it can't connect to the network, messages didn't go through, app is slow to keep up with new messages. It's okay when it works.

  16. guest-avatar

    Vincent Sengthavorn


    2 stars because the app does work but for a while now my messages would disappear and not how on here or console anymore. when I would delete the app my messages still don't appear. Edit: after getting in contact with the playstation support staff everything does seem to be working properly now.

  17. guest-avatar

    Justin Dragneel


    it works great but i cant view all the images my friend send me,its only showing 19 and we sent more than 50 to each other, please fix and update this so i can see all the images, it's not showing all my online friends it's only showing my friends that are offline and that are using phones,it needs to be fixed

  18. guest-avatar

    The app itself is overall useful. But there are glaringly upsetting points about the messenger app for playstation. Why does it need 3.3GB of space when Discord and other messengers are only 150MB? That is way more than necessary. There is nothing in this app that is different to make it better over others, you can't even have a party chat through it with your message group. Yet Facebook Messenger and Discord (with the exception of needing approvals) can have voice proper voice chats.

  19. guest-avatar

    Love using the app while im gaming but most times when i send a message from my notification bar it fails to send. Ill have to go on to the app, press on the red exclamation point and resend it. I am using an lg g7 with android 8.0 if you need that info.

  20. guest-avatar

    This app is completely unreliable you dont get anything on time and takes way too long to load anything the amount of times i had to close and open the app due to the app giving up to load anything is infuriating.. honestly come on. It has been happening for months and it still hasnt been fixed.

  21. guest-avatar

    it works pretty good it's nice it sucks when you set up a phone number for it and you change your phone number you have to redo everything so I would say 2-step verification with an email

  22. guest-avatar

    Very wicked app but despite being able to see who's in a party you cannot join in the app which is very disappointing when my roommate playing on my PS4 and I want to be in the chat with him and our friends

  23. guest-avatar

    This SO much faster than typing out messages with a controller. I've been able to make several friends, because we can essentially text eachother back and forth. Excellent time saver!

  24. guest-avatar

    Elihazar Salahthiel


    Trouble signing in and auto signs out sometimes. I can not sign in into my account anymore due to "connection error establishing during communication with a server.". This issue has been going on for a long while. Alright app. Good for sending images to your friends on psn.

  25. guest-avatar

    Paris McClelland


    Its okay but sometimes more times than most you have to resend your message because it does not go through. My internet is 4g and my wifi is legit. So PSN look into this issue please

  26. guest-avatar

    Absolute garbage application. the only reason why I'm downloading this junk is because I'm forced to---> because some over compensated idiot decided to separate messaging from the social PlayStation App. There is no logical sense as to why this even exist. Yay for mind numbing corporate thinking.

  27. guest-avatar

    Sometimes there is no warning that a messaging group already exists with the player I am trying to message, I open the conversation, they are already messaged about an event, now I have to leave the conversation again. 4.5/5 , great app.

  28. guest-avatar

    Sometimes has slight connection issues but other than that app works fine not had any problems. Only reason for the 4 stars is obviously seems to be no attempt to sort out the connection issues.

  29. guest-avatar

    I like how if u r playing and then u can grab ur phone and then text them espeshily if u have no mike to use and if ur friend does not have soical media like my friend. I also choose five stats because of this and it somtimes is slow but thats ok woth me i can still talk to my friends

  30. guest-avatar

    No matter where i am or with 4g or wifi this thing usually gives me a "cannot connect to network" error. Trash application. And the fact that we need this separate app for messaging is also ridiculous especially when it's broken as hell.

  31. guest-avatar

    Adam Darbyshire


    Brilliant app, so much easier than messaging people on the ps4. It's easy to use and you can chat while you're playing! And you can send pictures and screenshots ect. 100 perfect recommend this app if you have a lot of online pals

  32. guest-avatar

    Good app but I found that it can be glitchy and buggy sometimes and I don't get the notification if I recieve a message which is annoying but it's worth downloading

  33. guest-avatar

    I wish i had a mute button for certain people, also it always cannot connect to servers 9/10 times when i have good signal after updating it hardly works and sends messages anymore

  34. guest-avatar

    Solid app for messaging, though notifications can be wonky. Turn them off, they turn back on by themselves. Turn them on, only get notified of every 3rd or so message.

  35. guest-avatar

    kye ninja partridge


    Great for talking about things to your friends tiny bit of lag and i love how you can write on photos it's been very useful to me and my friends.10/10 perfect app.

  36. guest-avatar

    Everytime i try to sign im it says "❗ Connection to the server could not be established" fix this issue i dont know why PSN server is very poor.

  37. guest-avatar

    Why the frig isn't this rolled into the PS app? It's such a small part. And for the verification code, make it a numpad to enter not the keyboard. Silly app devs don't even dev apps right

  38. guest-avatar

    Works great. Makes it easier to send people messages on Playstation.

  39. guest-avatar

    Just as described. Very practical while you play and exchange messages at the same time

  40. guest-avatar

    GhostlyPhantom 0


    I've never had any problems with the app until I switched to a new phone now the app will not load fix now

  41. guest-avatar

    App says cannot connect to network. None of my friends are on the list, nor can I search anyone. Tried to reinstall with no luck.

  42. guest-avatar

    Text from your phone to other players is a lot faster than navigating the in game menus.

  43. guest-avatar

    Reactivity is pretty poor. You have to pull to refresh just to see if there are messages

  44. guest-avatar

    Great for PS users. What's the chance one day maybe being able to message/friend cross platform?

  45. guest-avatar

    Laurens Beirlaen


    Ridiculous decision to make this a separate app. Way back, all of this was integrated into 1 Playstation app but then all of a sudden some idiots decided it would be so much better to split up Messages and Communities into separate apps.

  46. guest-avatar

    It's good as you can message your friends from your phone but very slow sometimes to send or register on PS4

  47. guest-avatar

    The Legends Collector


    Please add in app sound change or volume/mute options. The default sound is very loud and obnoxious.

  48. guest-avatar

    Why did you split the apps? It's tedious that I can't just send messages on the other one. Can't you just merge back the apps like do we really need this? Used to be good when you have the original PlayStation app

  49. guest-avatar

    Pretty damn mediocre, it has issues and it's pretty bad at times. (Could also use a dark mode.)

  50. guest-avatar

    Dominic Copeland


    Great way to interact with friends. Just hope they put a voice calling on there future updates.

  51. guest-avatar

    Great app real easy to use fun great hands up hands down keep in touch with the PlayStation family friends online on the go when you get a chance please them a 5 star rating every one peace

  52. guest-avatar

    It needs to be able to do voice chats, as Xbox app has this and this doesnt

  53. guest-avatar

    Pls split other things like PS Store, Trophies, PS App Settings, it'd be great. Don't forget to make them laggy af, just like u did with this one.

  54. guest-avatar

    Cannot log on, connection to server can't be established. Yet I'm online?

  55. guest-avatar

    A cool idea, but why do i have to install seperate apps for this? Make the PlayStation app be the only app, that can use messages friends and more.

  56. guest-avatar

    ShawnDre Maximus


    I don't like this app. I'm logged in to the ps app but also have to log in to the messaging app too. I don't need it then

  57. guest-avatar

    Richard Knoggin


    Love this app. Makes playing and txting so simple because you never have to close your game to message someone

  58. guest-avatar

    i mean its useful afk but even with an Ethernet cable messages take like 10 seconds to send. other than that 6/10.

  59. guest-avatar

    I love this app. Though I would like to see a continuous talk button instead of a 15 second message button.

  60. guest-avatar

    No reason for this not to be in base app, and as a little bonus it doesn't even send a message half the time

  61. guest-avatar

    Always able to get ahold of my friends which is been great this is definitely user-friendly very easy

  62. guest-avatar

    Felicia Milligan


    It's awesome and very helpful since on ps4 it takes a while to write a message, so now I can just text from my phone.

  63. guest-avatar

    LOVE THIS APP! you can text your friends even when you and them are offline! And you can see which friends are online!

  64. guest-avatar

    Cant report spammers. Tells me to "go back to the page i was on and report it from there" thats where i originally hit the report buttin. Super dissappointed at this oversight, as the whole reason i downloaded was to be able to report spammers.

  65. guest-avatar

    Great PS app for communication via txt but I wish I could voice chat through the app like you would if you were on your ps4...

  66. guest-avatar

    At first I thought this was a good app until the second day of work keeps logging me out and I have to keep logging back in it is very frustrating so I think that you should not get this app.

  67. guest-avatar

    Amazing app making it way faster to message people, there are tiny glitches but the app is so useful that the glitches dont really matter.

  68. guest-avatar

    Morrison Birznieks


    Great for talking to my friends on PlayStation network without having to pause the game.

  69. guest-avatar

    I have messages pop up on the app before the ps so it definitely works.

  70. guest-avatar

    Unable to connect to network error code since last update. The only way I can connect is when I'm connected to wifi. So how am I supposed to use the app when I'm travelling?

  71. guest-avatar

    alexander williams


    It would be great if it didn't constantly log you out and refuse to connect when you try to sign back in

  72. guest-avatar

    Love it keeps me from having to leave my game to chat.Just pull it up on your phone. Super convenient for someone who chats alot on ps

  73. guest-avatar



    It's useful when ur PlayStation is being stupid so u can use ur messages instead of having to turn on ur PlayStation

  74. guest-avatar

    Pretty good app because I was in an emergency and I had to download this to warn 1 of my friends and also is really good in natural

  75. guest-avatar

    This is an absolute disappointment. I'm so mad that every time it does a weird update it logs me off and I have to login again. Just bad design.

  76. guest-avatar

    Its nices and helps out in may ways , but will need to add a mass delete message feature Also check out my youtube channel @Sainty The Gamer 3k subs , gta car meet host amd content creator😉

  77. guest-avatar

    You should add more! Its use is really situational, and kinda laggy

  78. guest-avatar

    Quick and easy to use awesome during online playing to send a quick text to other online friends

  79. guest-avatar

    Ganryu of Light


    Awful app. Messages take too long to load. Support is nonexistent over the weekend even with a company of Sony's reach, which is disgraceful.

  80. guest-avatar

    I'm use it for years, it's exactly the same like on PS4

  81. guest-avatar

    It's good. Can't complain much, it's just not as interactive

  82. guest-avatar

    hold my noodles


    It's bad. So many bugs cant send bounce message. Cant play voice message .etc.

  83. guest-avatar

    App needs a delete option for messages, not just a Leave option. 5 stars if there was a delete option

  84. guest-avatar

    Logs me off, messages fail to send, and the quick reply NEVER works

  85. guest-avatar

    Why isn't there a report feature for this message app? It has to be the only message app in the world where you can't report spam

  86. guest-avatar

    Having a major problem with it not showing up anyone that is online at all. Plz fix this.

  87. guest-avatar

    Markus Delonais


    Pretty good except it glithes out and crashes half the time

  88. guest-avatar

    It says cannot connect to network even i restart the internet 6 times

  89. guest-avatar

    Good for texting friends but it's completely slow and sometimes unreliable

  90. guest-avatar

    All u can do is message can't answer calls or anything no wonder Xbox is better. they care for other device users and not just people who bought their playstation

  91. guest-avatar

    Not getting any party invite sound notifications. Its been like this for years now

  92. guest-avatar

    This app keeps signing me out and I have to sign in everytime, even when I have the setting to keep me signed in. Major inconvenience. First world problems, I know.

  93. guest-avatar

    There is absolutely no reason for this app to be 3.8 Gb. It also fully logs me out regularly

  94. guest-avatar

    I love it reminds me of Facebook messenger, but this ones awesome for PSN I love it thanks

  95. guest-avatar



    Great app but it needs to be connected to groups though

  96. guest-avatar

    I love the app but i wish we could delete chats because im secretly dating somebody and it says things there so can we remove them plz and the app is really good and no ads

  97. guest-avatar

    Recent players doesn't work, Loses connection a lot.
