Instantly reach the people in your lifefor free. Messenger is just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).

Not just for Facebook friends: Message people in your phone book and just enter a phone number to add a new contact.

Group chats: Create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place.

Photos and videos: Shoot videos and snap selfies or other photos right from the app and send them with one tap.

Free calls: Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries. (Calls are free over Wi-Fi. Otherwise, standard data charges apply.)

Even more ways to message:
Bring your conversations to life with stickers.
Preview your camera roll photos and videos without leaving the conversation--then choose the perfect ones to send.
Record voice messages when you have more to say.

Extra features:
Know when people have seen your messages.
Forward messages or photos to people who weren't in the conversation.
Search for people and groups to quickly get back to them.
Turn on location to let people know when you're nearby.
See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook.
Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break.
Stay logged in so you never miss a message.

I've been using Facebook messenger for about 3 years now I believe and it's worked better than before! You Guys should have seen back then the updates would only make things worse and this messenger from today is far from being as bad as back then.. The only thing I have a pr

Mandated app use, right? (1 star)
So this application has been mandated to use for messaging through Facebook. Facebook is supposedly "updated" every two weeks in the App Store. Maybe I'm confusing updating with upgrading, but in order for an update to be effective would the original software need to work or not work? I've had to use this app since it has come out, I've updated Facebook religiously like I hv a choice, messenger is updated when they are able to &quo

Don't need messenger to check FB messages (3 stars)
I thought about downloading this app and was reading through the comments. Several people seem to think you have to have this to read messages on your iPhone. You do not. All you do is go to Facebook through Safari, which I actually prefer in a lot of cases anyway. You can still read your private messages just like we used to be able to do with the app. It is just as easy as using the app. I stay signed in and it does some things better tha
