I only use it cause I have too Nobody text anymore, and messenger has a high level of convenience. The chat heads, free voice/video calls, the stickers and GIF support. No obtrusive ads (looking at you request an Uber). But the CPU usage, and RAM usage are insane. I'm not a fan of how heavy the app is, a lighter version with restricted features would be nice.
Almost gave 2★'s It works for the most part but because of the quality when using the video call option 'FaceTime' I almost gave it 2 Stars. It lags real bad most of the time when doing calls -both in audio and the video it lags. The rest of the app is pretty neat for messaging a FB friend. Allot of ways to express yourself in message
Running slow and keeps saying Waiting for Connection I have a good network connection- data on my phone with full signal. But lately, messenger keeps saying that it can't connect to the network. Now I can't receive new messages anymore and I need to sign in to my phone browser to be able to send and receive messenges on Facebook which is working, meaning that it is not the network connection that is causing the problem!
1 Star New message notifications are still on my notification bar even if I open the message, and read it and reply. What the heck? Fix ASAP. Can't delete a freaking unfriended contact. Are you serious Facebook? Delete contact button doesn't work. I can still see the contact right after doing that and even after many days.
Messenger games I have a Galaxy S4 and recently updated messenger but when I try and play a game it says the feature isn't available to everyone yet. Does this mean it'll be available soon or not at all because if it won't work for me I'd rather not have it there.
Notifications need some attention. I haven't been getting any in my notification bar since the April update and it's really quite annoying because I end up accidentally ignoring some relatively important things. Please fix it 😭😭
Now you can see your call history and missed calls—all in one place.
