How do I get the Facebook Messenger app on my Samsung Galaxy device?
Facebook Messenger connects to your Facebook account so that you can easily message all of your friends. Through the Messenger app you can send messages, start group conversations, share photos, videos and gifs and make voice and video calls.
Facebook Messenger is supported on devices that meet the following requirements:
- the smartphone is running Android 4.0 or later. Find out how to check what Android verision you are using
Additionally, you will need a mobile data plan in order to recieve and send messages when outside of a Wi-Fi network
Please note: Messenger is no longer supported on devices running Android 2.3 or older. If you are using a device on Android 2.3 you can download the Messenger Lite or Facebook Lite apps. You can also view your messages on the Facebook website.
