Terrible update since end-to-end. For one thing, the photos being lumped together SUCKS. I can no longer search for things in my chat that was said BEFORE the update, which makes it really hard to re-read bits of information or conversations said YEARS ago. FIX THIS PART ASAP! It takes FOREVER for a voice message/video to start playing now. Like MINUTES sometimes. There are other problems I've come across but I can't think of them right now. I'd really prefer you to just revert this update.

Terrible update!! Facebook needs to fix this thing. now my notifications don't pop up anymore even though I've double checked the settings in both places and they are on. I hate the new layering of photos because you don't even know they are there. it says it's sending a message but it takes forever. Received photos don't always load. It says I have no internet connection even when I do. Facebook needs to dump this update, go back to the last one, and work on it more!

I wish I could attach screenshots. I don't know what they're trying to do but I'm about to just start using my laptop. It's very clear they prioritize optimal performance for IOS and not Android. Any reel, voice message, photo, etc (any attachment at all really) doesn't show up. I closed out the app, turned off chatheads, restarted my phone after fully closing out the app, and NOTHING has worked. Not to mention how the photos look now when you send them? Who is that for? Please fix the app.
