I've been having this annoying issue for about 2 weeks now. With app open and having a conversation with a friend I continue getting new notifications each time they type something. Example I have a chat window open with Bill every time Bill sends me a message Ding i type then he sends somthing ding and so on. I've updated, uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared cach ,restarted my phone and sent a support ticket with no response. I don't want to hear ding after every reply. The way it has always been

Remember back when app developers wanted their app to work, and felt embarrassed when updates broke things? Meta apparently doesn't. Voice messages over 1 minute error out more than 63% of the time (I recorded it over a period of a week). Notifications only work 52% of the time. Roughly a fourth of the times I've opened the app, the input box for a message doesn't resize... And about a dozen other bugs make this difficult to keep using.

For the most part it is a great app and does it's job well. The reason I'm writing this review is because of a glitch that ruins my whole experience. If someone tries to call me through messenger, and I decline the call it causes all the audio on my phone to become washed out and distorted. The only way to fix my audio is to just wait, or restart my phone. I have a Google pixel 7a, but I've seen it happen on other phones.
