According to The Verge, that’s because you downloaded Messenger version 170.0, which was just released yesterday. It seems to have a bug which makes the app crash as soon as you open it, according to many user reports.
The fix is reportedly just as simple: Download Messenger version 170.1 right now. It’s brand-new, released today, presumably just to counter that bug.
Sure, you could maybe just wait for it to update automatically, but perhaps you’re away from Wi-Fi right now. Depends on your settings, I suppose.
