It has a neat, simple design that I appreciate. It's also fast and functional enough. I just wish they included the ability to play videos directly in chat, to view gifs not as still images, and to send videos in chat as I'm unable to do so. Photo and video quality could also use some work despite compression. Links also don't open correctly and that's if they even open at all. I hope this gets rectified soon.
Sucks with links. Even Facebook links. And why does Messenger (and this lite version) often tell me I have a message (or two) waiting when clearly I have none?! This bug has been around forever and a day and still happening. At least Android 7.1 lets me clear the icon. But seriously annoying... fix it. No GIFs either. Ugh
Works well, I much prefer it to the regular messenger. However, on my SGS5, my screen flickers and has trouble turning on with this app installed. Sometimes it takes a minute of just tapping the power button to get the screen to turn on. The problem goes away after an uninstall and a restart.
Biggest gripe I have with app is it doesn't link from Facebook. I stopped using the apps along time ago and use a adblocker webpage instead which used to allow me to check messages directly. Now whenever the option to message someone is required it sends me to the messenger app within the playstore to download. Finding contacts within the app is fairly easy but a pain and the constant alert for you to check Facebook is annoying too. Overall
Crashed three or four times on first launch, then reactivated my Facebook account without notifying me (only knew it happened via automated email from Facebook). Deactivated my account again and opened the app, and now it's logged me out. You're able to use Messenger with a deactivated Facebook account, so why can't I use Messenger Lite in the same situation?
Fantastic app, low space required, none of the junk fb messenger has to distract from the intended purpose of text and calls. The only downfall unable to view videos. Other than that don't change anything. People if you want all the other rubbish like gifs, stories, chat heads, video calling blah blah blah download fb messenger again, leaving us to enjoy this basic app as it is.
