    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. Full Review

    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. Full Review

    Appreciate that it's a small sized app. But it puts in fake messages from my friends, which they haven't actually sent (like a wave smiley). So technically this app is more of a bot and a spyware. I strictly discourage others from downloading it, because nobody wants to end up having a made-up conversation. Full Review

    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. Full Review

    It's much better than the default Messenger app, for sure, but it could still be better. I keep getting notifications that I have a new message, but when I click on the Lite app, there is no such message. I click to make the notification go away, and it comes right back. Rather annoying, because you don't know when their legitimately IS a new, unread message. Full Review

    Thank you! Messenger was my largest app at over 600 MB even though I talk to few on it and keep a clean inbox. But I would like the options like colors and nicknames and all dat jazz in settings here for fun and/or privacy reasons. I also was sad when the ability to save files sent to me such as videos was not present either. I understand many dislike the removal of chatheads, but i personally never use them because I always accidentally click a convo I didn't mean to open while playing a game or using other apps. I tend to get messaged the same moment I'm clicking where it will pop up lol Full Review

    Gif messages no longer work, continuously tells me to update to the latest version, but then says my Pixel phone is not supported. Great job making an app that doesn't work correctly. Full Review

    I downloaded the app, signed in, and tried launching 3 videos is already seen in the original Messenger app. I was redirected to an external browser... NONE of the videos played. Uninstalling Lite: I'll wait (i.e., stuggle) until FB fixes Messenger. Full Review

    Out with the old Messenger App! Lite does every single thing that the original Messenger app does. It does it faster and above all else it takes up substantially less space!! 😍 love it 👌 Full Review

    I had Facebook Messenger and Facebook. Which took up so much space and Facebook runs all the time. Something had to give. And FB Messenger was my Default. I actually dusted off my regular Message App. That came with the phone & still I saved so much space. And didn't lose all that much either. This App has everything I need. Full Review

    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 Full Review
