More than a billion people trust Messenger to connect and share in the moment. Messenger is both a communication service that enables people to message on Facebook and Instagram, and a standalone app for people who want quick access to meaningful conversations with their friends, family, communities or creators they want to be closer to.
On Messenger, anyone can customize their chat with themes and emojis, show their reactions, share photos and videos, make audio and video calls and much more. Beyond connecting with friends, it has also become a thriving place for businesses, creators and communities to connect with each other and the things they love. We work hard to make Messenger a trusted and fun messaging experience regardless of which device, platform or Meta experience you choose to use.
Messenger Kids is a free video calling and messaging app designed for kids to connect with close friends and family from their tablet or smartphone. Group or one-on-one video calls with loved ones are more fun with interactive masks, reactions and sound effects. Parents manage the contact list and decide who can connect with their children. Messages don’t disappear and can’t be hidden in case parents would like to check in. Messenger Kids allows kids to message and video call using Wi-Fi so they don’t need a phone number.
