If you want to install and use the Messenger app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Messenger in the search bar and press Search. Click on Messenger application icon. A window of Messenger on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

    I loved messenger when I could choose who and when I wanted to message someone. I’m a singer, so lots of people want to friend me on Facebook so they can follow my posts. Now when I accept a friend request, I’m bombarded with notifications to wave or say hi to my new friend. Also, Facebook is not a dating or hook up site for me. When I accept a friend, I control what they can see for a reason... I don’t want to get personal with them. Now my notification icon blows up with stuff I would get on a dating site.. hey beautiful, you’re so sexy, etc. I hate it!! One night I was cooking dinner for my family and my phone started going off with a weird notification ring I never heard before. My husband picked it up and it was another man calling my phone through messenger! These people don’t have my phone number for a reason. I only give it out to those who need it. Now any random person can call me through the app without having my phone number. Facebook is constantly changing things so I can’t keep up with this type of new feature so I was very surprised This is a great app for cheating on your spouse, if you’re into that. I don’t have time to accept a friend request, then go block every one of them on messenger, especially if I just accepted a bunch of new friends. Now I have hundreds of friend request sitting in notifications all because I don’t have time to follow through blocking them on messenger. Messenger is a Super invasion on my personal life... it was deleted!
  • Best messaging app

    By tjsargent
    This is the best and easiest way I can message anyone! I can message, call, FaceTime, see when people are active, etc.! I’ve never had any problems whatsoever. I was just curious about one thing. Sometimes, I’ll be sending a message to someone, even though they’re not active. Here’s what I’m curious about. There’s that little green circle, showing that someone’s active or was active a certain amount of time ago. All the time...when someone was active a certain amount of time ago, it won’t show it until later. For example...I’ve messaged someone around 12:30 P.M. one time. It didn’t have the green circle, saying they were active or active a certain amount of time ago. Then, 20 minutes later (12:50), a green circle popped up on them, saying they were active 50 minutes ago (12:00, which is 30 minutes before I sent them a message). Also, another thing I’m curious about is still with the green light. It won’t show that they’re active when they actually are active. I was just was curious about that. I’m not complaining about this, at least I’m not trying to. I apologize if I am. But, I was curious about it. It’s been happening for a few years. This app definitely deserves 5 stars and above.
  • This App is horrible.

    By gameviewerrazi
    As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device. All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.
  • Stop with the notification setting

    By AlyTriolo
    Look, the app does what it’s supposed to do. It’s a platform for contacting my FB friends and it does that just fine. Hence the two stars. However, with every single other app I own, you can opt out of notifications just once and never get asked again. I don’t like unnecessary notifications clogging up my phone all day long. I don’t want messenger notifications. EVERY TIME I log into the app, a pop up reminder comes up reminding me that my notifications are off and prompting me to turn them on. Even when I dismiss this alert, there’s a notification (little red circle with a number one in it) next to my photo on the app that is also a reminder to turn on my notifications. The red circle never goes away. And now just this week I’ve started getting an alert in red at the top of my messenger inbox letting me know that my notifications are not on. I find all of this very annoying and over the top. This issue in and of itself makes me want to delete the app. If I don’t want notifications then leave me alone! Why is it so important to this app that it’s forcing me to get notifications? Someone turn this off for goodness sakes.

  • FaceBook is getting worse and worse

    By E.A90
    Can not use this app without adding your phone number. That’s ridiculous! You shouldn’t be required to provide your personal information. It’s already bad enough we have to download an entire app just to read our messages. They need to go back to the way it use to be.
  • Deletes my messages

    By Artpop420
    If i send a person to ignore messages for a while i don't receive all the stuff they've sent me. Either some or all the messages they've sent will be missing from my side.
