Low quality

Don't rotate your phone as this app's landscape mode is so broken you have to quit and restart. App launch is very slow (10+ seconds). Notifications are not actionable

Interface bonita, fácil uso. Agora não fecha mais, só falta uma melhoria de desempenho

Very disappointing

Can't make the window smaller than a quarter of my screen, and messages don't scale with the window, so when you make it any smaller your messages run off the edge without any way to scroll over and view them. If you absolutely don't want to keep facebook open in a tab, then get this - otherwise you'll find it far just as intrusive as just using the facebook-locked messenger with FAR LESS functionality. User interface is NOTHING like what is advertised in the windows store. Very minimalistic, but not in the functional way like you may have come to expect from other messenger apps. Hopefully the app was simply launched incomplete and will improve with updates, because AOL messengers in the 90s were more intuitive than this. Also - I wish I would have been told this somewhere - you need to log out of facebook and restart your computer to get it to load the first use. I sat waiting for it to do anything for ages before I found this "fix" on a forum.

App Works Great! Needs Lock Screen Support

The new W10 version of this app is great. On my Lumia 950 it performs great and rarely stutters. However, it's missing some important features. The fact that there's no lock screen support or transparent tile option is kind of ridiculous, as both those features were in the old app for 8.1. Also you need to add proper W10 action center notifications. Ones that show you to send a response right from the notification. Add those features and calling, and it'll be perfect!

Desktop Messenger

I love it! I don't have to put up with pop ups and can play other games off FB or their great new arcade. This is so EASY to read now and much better than on a phone. I never use Sky*e anymore.

The new upgrade SUCKS

The recent version of messenger is ridicolous. The earlier version lacked in features and had its small issues, but this new one is something else... Try writing while someone else is posting or even seeing messages, it's just impossible. Massive lags when the app updates any info to view. Also, try taking a picture on your camera and posting it to a conversation - allow a nice ten minutes for the picture to appear in the gallery!!! Unreal. Need to consider iphone or an android if not fixed promptly. Yes, that's how important this app has become and that's how horrible this app is at the moment.

Problems with Windows 10

Using messenger on Windows 10 only allows for half of the conversation to be read. I am unable to view the entire screen or continue conversations with people. There are many more problems (like video calling, notifications, etc.) that do not work properly either. This app needs an update before any use on Windows 10.

Make the bubble available

Make the bubble version of the app available, it's soooo easy to use the app while doing something else with your phone ! I've been using the android app for quite some time and using the MS OS version still gives me a few struggles... Except for that, I have no other issues.

Update Too Slow 🐌

The app is slow connecting to my phone network. And the phone dictionary sometimes disappears or not even show at all because the app wont allow it. And moreover it still misses alot of features. I get miss calls from my friends but can't call back. Kindly reply with a date of when an update is scheduled. Many thanks to your continuous efforts supporting windows. luv u guys..

Update JUN/2016 it's incredible! But JUL/2016 not.

JULHO/2016 What... Happening, MS? ARE YOU SERIOUS? Where's my LOG OUT button?!? And now the annoying LOAD is back?!? For speeds sake, guys! What are you drinking?!? Last month June was perfect. Love your app Skype, but I need the Messenger fast too. -------------- JUNE/2016 FINALLY WE CAN LOG OUT!!! Forgetting compare with others systems, the Lumia version it's perfect. Never crash. Open really fast. Great recording audios and send messages instantly. And now we have GIFs. Uninstall the Telegram 'cause of this update. I really enjoy use GIFs in my conversations. And the layout, wow 😲 Like it a lot! So smooth like a Lumia deserves 😎 But, there's still a little problem. I want the transparent tile back! Please! And keep this hard work! I never abandon my Lumia 930! Better than iPhone 5! Thank you, guys 🙆🏻
