Instantly reach the people you care about.
Messenger is a fast, free and reliable way to stay in touch. It's just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).
Get to your messages without opening Facebook.
Bring your conversations to life with stickers.
Send photos privately.
Have group conversations and make plans on the go.
Text your phone contacts, even if you're not Facebook friends.
Share your location so people know when you're nearby.
Record voice messages.
Make free calls, even to friends in other countries.
Know when people have seen your messages.
See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook.
Stay logged in so you never miss a message.
Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Messenger uses location data to make features work, help people connect and more.
We have a handful of new features we're planning to introduce in the near future, such as colour gradients and a re-skinned interface. We will be rolling this version out gradually over the next few weeks – stay tuned, we'll be back with more soon! This version includes several bug fixes and performance improvements. Thanks for using Messenger!
Coming soon: Remove a message from a chat thread after it's been sent. If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message within ten minutes of sending it.
