    the Messenger app no longer has the option to be allowed in the background or not.

    I haven't noticed any difference in functionality however.
    I heard somewhere it was now tied to the Facebook app, but I don't know.

    Thanks for the answers guys, i've already checked the batterysaving options, but everything is just blank on Messenger. I have no options.
    When i open my Messenger app and go to settings, i've checked everything to tell me when someone sends me a txt. But nothing happends when someone sends me something while in the background.

    If thats it, then they really need to fix the notifications, because i dont get any from messenger...

    just install Facebook and the messenger will run in the background. as long as you have Facebook installed the messenger will run as long as you have Facebook running in background.
