What is the best Facebook Messenger for macOS?

I want something which would handle notifications property. I don't want receive Facebook browser notification and app notification. Also notifications should be able to be received when app is closed.

    Messenger for WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook, Slack & Hipchat

    It's free and can use multiple account in tab not like the single account Chatty.

    I used to love Franz, but stopped using it these days. I hate their tabbed navigation at the top. Anyway, is a good choice for starters.

      This is just the best app for your desktop, you can check all you social networks and email apps at once in a very functional way. Meaning, you can check but also use each app (post, reply, emails etc.) I just love this.

      This is supposed to be a chat relay. Why do I have to have a Franz account in order to use this application? I have enough accounts already. I'd love to try your tool out, but not if it requires me creating another online profile.

    I have not found a reason to use anything else - but will follow this Ask to see what else is suggested.

    Agreed; messenger.com is fine, and I'm super glad it exists (half expect FB to remove it some day).

      I love Facebook Messenger and I love how it is doing everything to take on all other chat apps + is feature-packed like Telegram. Native apps for Facebook Messenger on computers is something that I wish to see soon.

    Caprine is my most favorite Facebook Messenger app on Mac currently. Solid performer and is fast.

      I wanted a small, thin, light application that wrapped the Facebook Messenger service so that I could have Messenger open in an app rather than a browser tab. Caprine does exactly that. It also runs super light (~50Mb of RAM) *and* it has built in privacy features that Facebook does not offer. This is exactly what I was after. Kudos to the App dev for this one.

    A beautiful Mac app for Facebook Messenger

    I like Chatty due to the fact it's really well-made and well-designed, it has a dark mode which means it fits right on my Mac, and it has some neat customisability options :)

    Better than Franz and other similar apps, simpler and and with way more service integrations. Plus, I feel it is a more cared for project, with good customer support and decent updates.

    Messenger for Mac

    Facebook Messenger wrapped up as a desktop app

    It doesn't try to upsell you for other products they've developed (or cheat you into downloading their bloatware) and best of all, the desktop app icon looks just like FB Messenger.
