We are excited to share that the latest Facebook Messenger iOS app now supports Dynamic Type which means if you adjust the font size in the Settings panel, it will reflect within the app with the appropriate font size!

Here’s how to change the default font size on your iPhone:

Goto Settings and then tap on General. A bit down the page, you’ll see Siri, Spotlight Search, and then Text Size. Tap there. There you can adjust the font size by moving the slider correspondingly. (Settings -> General -> Text Size)
