Facebook Messenger picks up a small patch for bug fixes


Facebook Messenger is poised to give WhatsApp a run for best messenger service, even if they're both technically owned by the same company. Although WhatsApp had an update tonight (two, if you really want to count), Facebook Messenger has also been bumped to version to 5.0.1. If you know build numbers for software that 0.0.1 update should tell you this is a minor bug fix, with no new features.

Facebook Messenger hit 5.0 last Thursday, gaining Groups support and more in a fairly significant update. Much like WhatsApp though, after a major release comes the cleanup, patching little quirks and improving performance.

If you use Facebook Messenger, head to the Store now to grab 5.0.1, and maybe it'll address some issues you've been experiencing.

Thanks, everyone, for the tips!

Facebook Messenger picks up a small patch for bug fixes


Yaa they confirmed but its September ....news is available in windows power user.....

I spoke to the developer of vlc for windows 8 and wp8.1. His name,is Thomas Nigro. He's working on the app. He showed a screenshot of the app and the interface is fucking awesome

Molliplayer is not free. Regardless of what employed people say, free apps mean a lot for the platform.

Log out is much awaited option till then not downloading but updates are always welcome....sorry for little offtopic any news for wp 8.1 Daniel:worried:

Sign out option is not available on iOS and android either.. Deactivate and then reactivate your account in any browser to sign out from fb messenger

Really? I'm impressed then that I realized until now, either way facebook messenger is way better app than facebook itself, they need to catch up

The Facebook app was slower after the last updated for my phone L810 & 925. I hope this update will fix that. is useless, still not getting notifications on 1520. Still using what's app. What's app works flawlessly.

but until u can integrate facebook into whatsapp ,i need to use that software ,and yes notification ,still not working properly :(


My big gripe with this app is when you tap a toast notification it STILL doesn't bring you to the chat thread, instead displaying a "start the conversation" message.

Faster after this update. For anyone having notification issues, uninstall and reinstall the app, it fixed them for me.

Next update should include clearing the tile notification of you cleared it in the notification centre.

Still not getting notifications on 1520. Please put the different versions in the store. I want to download the version prior to 5.0.0.

notification still not working :( is kik messenger any better ?

edit i think its not facebook ,account ,am i right



Still no notifications on 1520. 5.0.0,, 5.0.3 and still no notifications on 1520. What's going on? I want the messenger version prior to 5.0.0. Fix it!!!!!!!

Lumia 1020 WP8.1 FB messenger hit 7.0.0 and I don't see message count in neither livetile nor lockscreen notifications (even though messenger is added to lockscreen notification bar slot). Facebook app shows new message counter in its navigation bar + action center shows new messages, how stupid...
