If they earned that amount of users is because they have to choose between installing messenger just to check your messages or uninstall the facebook app and access from your web browser.
As stated before the App is too heavy, it consumes a lot of RAM and it crashes once that you're phone is out of memory.
They did not earned the users because the app is amazing, it is just because they force everybody to use it.
why cant they create this app just like whatsapp??......ohh lord this app is too heavy....... way heavier than antivirus app that is running on background
Why there are people complaining about ram usage and battery life? Mining data from phones 24/7 takes a lot of ram and cpu cicles. You installed it knowing the messenger isn't just a common messenger app tied to Facebook.
Messenger is using just 43.27 MB on my Lumia.. We wp users just need a solid update
not because it is a great app but because w re pushed to use it
Memory Eater app..useless..great developer app eats much more memory than the small developers..
The only thing that I need with the name "Messenger" is from Google...which is the app that replaces Hangouts for SMS.
I'm Hangouts all the way.
Zuckerberg ain't forcing me download & use his garbage. I'm not being dragged in to the social media narcissistic epidemic.
No way Jose!
I'm not one of them and never hope to be either.
I haven't used FB in over 5 years, it's way too easy to get caught cheating on that thing... Someone tags you in the wrong picture, next thing you know, your girl is ready to cut your member off... but anyways this is still a great achievement. 1 billion is just around the corner.
It was shoved up my phone's arse by Facebook -__-
Nobody likes it.
This sucess may be the move needed by Google Plus to finally catch some users.
It's a Loss-Loss scenario
mir, 07 Jan 2016Their own fb app is already approaching the 300mb mark for used space on the phone. Absurd fil... moreActualy 519MB for FB app,and aditional 175MB fo mesinger (on iOS)!?!Crazy s**t,back in a day i used to play beautiful shooters with whole 3d world rendered,and all it takes was 1 CD on windows XP.
They force people to download it. It's so annoying.
Does it drain battery? Does it consume 150mb storage like its cousin?
Their own fb app is already approaching the 300mb mark for used space on the phone. Absurd file size for just a social app.
lol, 07 Jan 2016Does it have chat heads? No? Be quiet then please.does this messenger use just 3 mb? does it keep phone without battery drain? does it run minecraft? no? then be quite please
I was FORCED ! by FB to download it...
Its the most hateful thing. Well I think that can be explained by the fact that its a mandatory download but we stopped using it a long time ago
