Are you after an earlier version of Messenger or do you not have it?

I Googled 'Facebook messenger android apk old version'

The first result from uptodown.com was the one I used. Worked for me.

 

Edit: The version of Messenger that worked for me was 81.0.0.15.78 which I got from uptodown dot com.

Now it's saying the the app isn't compatible with the device! I don't know whats up with that. This phone isn't old at all and everything else works perfectly fine.

I didn't have this problem but if you go into settings/security and make sure the option to accept installations from unknown sources is active, that may help.

Try going into your settings/security and activate the option to install apps from unknown sources.

@bobbycellis There is no way to fix it safely until Facebook release a new update without the bug.

Hi. This allows the Facebook app to be installed from a source other than the play store, probably this is an older version.

Always be aware that installing apps from places other than the play store does have risks, malware etc.

This worked fine - I have since turned off the security setting allowing downloads from unknown sources. Thanks guys.

Unless you know and trust the source, you should not install apps or software from unknown sources. I'd strongly recommend that you turn the security setting back on and remove what you've installed. You have no guarantee that the app is legitimate or that it doesn't contain malware.
