Facebook's quest to get humanity to spend every waking moment in a Facebook-owned app has ruined Messeger lately. Right now, Messenger is far more about Stories and photos than it is about communicating with specific people, which is dumb.
Even worse is that Facebook does make a good Messegner app. It's called Facebook Lite, and it's a stripped-down, data-friendly version of Messenger aimed at users in developing countries, who have slower phones and limited data connections. Officially, it's not offered in North America, but The Verge has noticed that there's a workaround. The only catch is that it's Android-only.
