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!

  • 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.
  • Sick, Sick, Sick

    By philmfan
    Once again I’m being forced to reinstall messenger??!! And you’ve added more surveillance features?! Someone else has already noted your B.S. notification policy (aka consumer manipulation and dominance strategy). Far as sending messages to people, yeah the app does that but so do the simplest message apps, and that’s your ONLY ONLY ONLY reason to exist as an app in the first place. Offer a simplified version, messages only, simple one time only turn off notifications option, and no video. That’s what a stand up company would do; but no, you’re NOT stand-up, are you? That’s not your way - you’re just sneaky, devious, and manipulative. There is no “convenience” to any of this, no “we’re just doing it to give you more options” about it. Ha ha ha, but the sick joke is on ME isn’t it? Eventually I’ll probably just reinstall the stupid thing and you know it. Your entire philosophy is about dominance if your consumers, isn’t it? What an ugly way to gain business, what a perverted way to treat your consumers. Eventually this is going to come back to bite you in the rear. Let’s see just how long it takes. I pity anyone who glurps and slurps down anything FB feeds them without complaint. The self-hatred you engender within me will one day soon drive me away.
  • Can’t even send a message on the main app

    By Astraeus99
    Ok so I have good WiFi at my home, right? Plus I have Data so it shouldn’t be a problem, but whenever I use the app, it disconnects and reconnects LITERALLY EVERY SECOND. This prevents me from sending messages or anything! Also there has to be at least 4 people for a group chat including yourself or else it isn’t allowed? What kind of rule is that! So it works perfectly when I use the website, but I can’t join group calls or anything. It’s like a mix of Facebook and Messenger but it shouldn’t be because it’s a site for messenger! So the only thing that that is useful for is texting people. Also, when I use messenger it makes me use another account for some reason which is REALLY annoying, and I can’t log that account out. Oh and that brings me to another problem. I can’t log out of messenger!!!! There is no option to delete your account from messenger or anything like that! I was trying to today, and it said that that isn’t an option! Well anyway, this app has just been a pain for me and I plan on deleting it. Aside from all that, Thank you for taking the time to read my review, and have a good day!!!
  • App Continues to Not Open Due to “[Having] Any Privacy Restrictions” a Few Updates Ago

    By PadLly
    As happened with the latest Facebook update now, even though I still receive texts from it (for now), am asked to continually update everytime, and have used the app on my devices for years, I’m now told in the App Store that I have to “turn off privacy restrictions” in order to open either app. Messenger disappeared a while ago and now, even the icons for both have disappeared on both of my non-laptop or computer but widely used types of smart devices. My privacy restrictions are universal for all apps as well as long-standing. Also, while when I click the text message update links and am diverted to the less user-friendly device version on the internet, it continues to ask me to open my Messenger app when I try to see my messages. I used to be a very frequent user of both apps randomly throughout the day, and the site in general for even more years, but it’s been getting a bit cumbersome. It also feels a bit strange that one would have to turn off their privacy restrictions in order to access a certain app, in general.

  • Issues

    By mahmoud s6
    It was working fine untill it decided not to work no matter what i do. It keeps blacking out and crashing when i try to open the app. Restarted the phone and reinstalled the app many times and the problem wont go away.
  • App crashes everytime i open it!

    By nerdyprincelover
    Facebook messenger usually is a great app for me in terms of contacting friends and family. However, it now keeps crashing every-time i try to open it to read my messages and reply. Its caused me to reinstall the app about 100 times. I also keeping opening the app just to get a glimpse of the messages my friends and family have sent me before it blacks out. It has become really annoying and inconvenient. I hope you guys are aware of this problem and can resolve it as soon as possible. Would really appreciate it!
