“Facebook Messenger” is probably the most feature-rich messaging app along with Messages app for iOS 10. Features like animated GIF, secret conversation, funny emoji, video calling etc. make it great for users. Personally, I like using it to communicate with my Facebook friends.

There are times when I chat with my friends for hours using Messenger.
