    Most phones come with a texting app installed as a system app. You can't "install" it over that, all you can do is update it. Or you can install a different texting app. (But if you don't have an unlimited account, that app is "theftware", which we don't discuss here. Thread closed.)

    Simply put the phone is too old. We see someone on here almost weekly asking this, messenger doesn't seem to work on lollipop devices anymore.

    Look for messenger for your andriod version but not guaranteed to work

    I believe the OP is asking about the Facebook Messenger app, which in the Play Store is called "Messenger - Text and Video Chat for Free": https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....orca&hl=en_US. I reopened the thread to respond.

    To the OP, the problem is likely that you have an old phone running an outdated OS version. I recall seeing a lot of posts about Messenger no longer working with Lollipop. You'd have to either find an apk of an older Messenger version (potentially risky if you go to random apk sites) or get a more current phone. The latter is a better option overall, since Lollipop devices likely have a bunch of unpatched vulnerabilities.
