Messenger for iOS is a powerful internet software that allows you to stay connected with your friends and family in a seamless way. With this app, you can send messages, share photos and videos, make voice and video calls, send money securely, share your location, and even chat with businesses.

One of the standout features of Messenger for iOS is its ability to allow you to skip exchanging phone numbers. Instead of having to exchange phone numbers with your contacts, all you need is their Messenger username or Facebook account. This makes it easy to stay connected with people without having to worry about sharing personal information.

Another great feature of Messenger for iOS is its dark mode. This sleek look helps cut down on glare and makes it easier on the eyes by switching the background from white to black. This feature is especially useful if you're using the app in low-light conditions.

If you want to express yourself better when messaging your friends and family, Messenger for iOS has got you covered. You can add silly stickers or use emojis to convey how you're feeling at any given moment. You can even send dancing GIFs if that's more your style!

When it comes time to share photos or videos with others, Messenger for iOS has an intuitive camera feature built right into the app. You can capture the moment using the Messenger Camera and then add filters or doodles before sending them off to friends or sharing them on Stories.

If voice or video calls are more your thing, then Messenger for iOS has got that covered too! You can hop on a call or group video chat anytime from anywhere – as long as there's Wi-Fi available! And if filters are your thing (who doesn't love a good filter?), then feel free to use them during your call!

Sometimes text just won't cut it when trying to convey how we feel about something – that's where voice messages come in handy! With Messenger for iOS, all you have do is hit record and say, sing or shout it out loud. Your friends and family will appreciate hearing your voice!

If you need to send money securely within the US, Messenger for iOS has got you covered there too! You can easily send and receive money from friends in the app by adding your debit card or PayPal account.

Lastly, if you need to share your location with someone (maybe to suggest a meeting spot), then Messenger for iOS makes it easy to do so with just a few taps. And if you need customer support from a business or want to make reservations, then Messenger for iOS allows you to chat with businesses directly.

In conclusion, Messenger for iOS is an excellent internet software that offers a wide range of features designed to keep you connected with your loved ones. Whether it's sending messages, sharing photos and videos, making voice or video calls, sending money securely within the US only or chatting with businesses – this app has got everything covered!


Facebook Messenger for iOS offers just about everything you'd want in a messaging app, with hooks into your Facebook contacts to help you connect with friends.


Multiple ways to add contacts: Messenger automatically connects you to your Facebook friends, and you can add non-Facebook contacts via their mobile phone numbers. When prompted by the app, you have the option of uploading your phone contacts to Facebook or using your phone number to connect with those who are not Facebook friends. You also have the choice of using Messenger as your default SMS app.

Optional encryption: Messenger's Secret Conversations is available on Android and iOS devices to send and receive end-to-end encrypted messages. Group messages and video and voice calls aren't supported. By default, Secret Conversations are not turned on in Messenger; you need to enable the feature to encrypt messages.

Chat with friends: In addition to handling text chats, Messenger is loaded with goodies to make your messages more entertaining, including adding stickers and GIFs to chats.

Voice and video: Messengers lets you make free worldwide voice and video calls. After a group chat, Messenger remembers the participants if you want to chat up the same group later.

Play games: Challenge friends to nearly three dozen games, including Space Invaders and Galaga. In a conversation, tap the Game Controller icon, select a game, and tap Play Now to challenge a friend.

More than just chat: Snap photos, capture videos (including ones with Snapchat-like filters and stickers), and record voice messages to share. Tap the dollar sign icon to send and receive money with friends. You can also add chatbots that will help you make travel plans, for example, or see the latest news.


A tight fit: Though Facebook had the good sense to make Messenger its own mobile app instead of yoking it to the Facebook app, Messenger still packs a lot into one app. Remembering where to find some features can be challenging.

Bottom Line

Facebook's Messenger packs a lot of goodness into one app, from text, voice, and video chat to classic arcade games. With seemingly everyone on Facebook, Messenger might be the only messaging app you need to keep in touch with family and friends.
