Facebook confirmed the bug in a statement to International Business Times. According to reports from The Verge and TechCrunch, the bug is frustrating many iOS users because it only allows them to type out a few words on the app's keyboard before freezing up.

The Facebook Messenger keyboard bug affects typing inside the app.

Facebook Messenger is one of the go-to chat platforms on mobile devices, with more than a billion people having it installed on their mobile devices.

While the Facebook Messenger keyboard bug isn't affecting all iOS users, it's enough of a problem that many people are taking to social media to express their frustration over the problem.

Update: Good news: The issue has been fixed. "We investigated and the problem is resolved". Some still saw the issue as of Thursday noon. Those tools have caused the app to become too bloated, he said.

Facebook told TechCrunch it was looking into the issue. The company says it will work on de-cluttering the Messenger app this year. A lot of them have found their product market fit; some haven't. In a post about Messenger changes in 2018, Marcus reminded users about the new features launched on the app.

Facebook plans to strip back its Messenger app to the bare bones after spending the last two years adding one new feature after another.
