  • More money, no integrity

    By ZeJ0K3R
    one of the most weirdest reaction I had when this app came out; there is absolutely no reason to make 2 separate apps.... back when it used to be 1 it was more efficient but now you have to go to a different app each time you want to chat....
  • No “mark as read” button

    By AndoverCat
    Would be great if there’s a “marked as read” button. There are messages that I do not really care about reading and do not want to appear as I have “seen” the group messages in the group chat. Would also be nice if one is able to delete old messages especially from groups that you have left.
  • Recent update is the worst

    By Hemdjk
    Ran the most recent update only to have my app constantly tell me I have a message. If I open the app and close it the badge goes away for at least 2 minutes then comes back.

  • It’s okay

    By Dia95
    It needs an option to be invisible but still see when other people are online

    Only giving two stars because if works correctly more often than the Facebook app does. I only have messenger because it’s no longer optional. Taking away my freedom Mark.
  • Forceful update

    By Horororge
