The call feature quite often doesn't show or allow me to answer incoming calls, even if doing nothing with my phone at the time, and I have to call the person back, which comments have been made that it's highly irritating for them, also, when I can't answer and have to call back. I have reinstalled a couple times, and adjusted settings numerous times to no avail. Other than that inconvenience, it's a handy, pleasant app.

Used to be an 8/10 app. Now it's more like a 3/10. They removed the ability to scroll through the pictures left and right whenever you click on a picture in a chat. Also, it automatically mutes you whenever you join a call. Videos also take forever to load now. These along with a couple other really bad changes in the latest updates have turned this app into a dumpster fire.stupid? Edit: also, you cannot voice type in "floating chat" mode. You have to actually open up the app.

I mean, where do I start? It's fine. Chat heads are revolutionary and should be used everywhere. It's great for finding my SMS messages or being reminded to check them. With ADHD that's a massive plus. However, a ton of my messages don't send, sometimes I don't get SMS, and it can't even load in my previous conversations. As in, at present I cannot browse conversations. Irritating. Be better. Work on data handling.
