    Char Bishop Published date: September 19, 2017

    I've got a Droid Maxx 2. In my opinion with what I've experienced is the message request. My calls never go any further then being able to answer before the call is dropped. No matter if I'm connected to WiFi or running off data. To top it off now I see my text messages with my Facebook messages. Its also has to many permission. I'm really concerning deleting this app and will when I find a better one that will work correctly all the time no matter if on data or WiFi. Full Review

    When are you ever going to add SINGLE parent emojis with 1 and 2 children huh? It's sad to say but there is prob more single parents then cpls. Come on now do NOT discriminate! Also, add the capability to access the flash on our phone when taking a pic and you'll get 5 stars from me! Full Review

    Worked fine until a couple of months ago. Now every time i send a video to family there are issues with audio and it sounds like I'm underwater. Have reported to Facebook with no response so am now using a different app to communicate with family overseas and intestate. Messaging and calls are fine, the only issue occurs trying to send my videos. Shame. Full Review

    Been using this since forever. Some glitches though: sometimes my chats will automatically scroll back to the bottom when I stop scrolling. Sometimes, the text box won't be selected when I wake my phone up from sleep. Sometimes, when press send, the message won't show up (but shows up as normal to recipients and my other devices).

    It's really glitchy sometimes. The "active" tab is inoperable, and it always says I'm online. I powered my Lg V20 off, and was not logged in on any other devices, but when my friend showed me, it says I was "active" for about another hour until it eventually said "active X minutes ago". I don't like the inaccuracy, especially on my end. Full Review

    I think it has potential. But just recently, videos have became difficult to send, and ones sent to me sound like they're underwater. I've updated the app, and I'm about to clear the data, but so far nothing has worked or fixed the issue. Full Review

    Notifications only work if they notify you of something. For instance, a NEW message. Not NO messages. Utterly ridiculous how many times a day I have to check this app to see if I really have a message or not. Full Review

    Every since the last update I've had nothing but problems. It doesn't want to load over half the time. It shows I have a message, but won't allow me to view it. I keep uninstalling the update and then re-installing it just for it to work for a few before it starts doing the same thing. Full Review

    Worked fine until a week or so ago constantly says "waiting for network" no matter if I'm on WiFi or 4g. Trying uninstall and reinstall to see if it fixes it. Could be the latest update on my phone, as Motorola Droid seems to have problems with almost every app around now days Full Review

    Since two updates ago I can't see the time of all the messages at all. You need to add the feature of clicking on them to show the time back... And a additional option to search would be very nice Full Review

    Only installed it because it's required to receive FB messages. Tells me I have a new message all the time when I don't. Is an accurate "new message" count really too much to ask? Full Review

    I like most features but I am not happy about the "Active" feature especially since I have it turned off yet when I checked my status from another FB account it showed me active. Also it was saying I was "active now" once when I hadn't been on FB all day. What's that about??? Full Review

    Update: still broken and cannot see read receipts. Chatheads are completely broken on Oreo for Pixel. There is a constant notification that wasn't there before or would be hidden unless you opened the notification area. Because of this it is difficult to differentiate between the chatheads being open and new notifications. Full Review

    The games are a great new addition to the Messenger Application especially Galatron which I love, but the problem is that only 10 percent of the game loads, it freezes up and the game hasn't updated lately which is frustrating. If the games on Messenger could be offered in a separate application it'll be fantastic. Messenger is getting as bad as the Facebook Application with malfunctions, it'll stop working or freeze up it is slow to install during updates and it shows a number icon on the widget informing of a message unread but when opened no message or message request is there and I have to reboot my device to clear the number from the widget. Whoever designed and maintains the Messenger and Facebook Applications appearently doesn't care to fix the issues with both Apps and should be fired and replaced with someone who knows how to design and maintain Apps.
