Update: its now over 6 months since fb msnger fails for voice and video calls if a bluetooth audio device (i. E. smartwatch) is connected. If i call from my phone via messenger audio or video it instantly fails. Turn off bluetooth and all works. Fb msngr needs to ignore (or use) connected devices. Please fix!
Would like to be able to easily see what time a message was sent/received/read from both/all people in the chat. Also says the other person is typing when they really aren't, even if they aren't active. Won't deliver my messages quickly, even when we're both on Wi-Fi. Seems to do that in the early morning after hours of inactivity. Even after hours of it sending, it won't deliver. Won't show last time someone was active if it's over 2 hours, or whenever it wants.
Annoying sounds I hate the sound I get anytime someone sends me a message. Most times i have to put my phone on silent before chatting with friend to avoid the annoying sound and notification. I wish there will be a way to turn off the sound of the messenger completely for all chat.
Ever since the update, all that's happened is that it says people are active when they're really not and now the app crashes every time I tried to call. It's pissing me off because I can't even call my bf who's two hours away anymore! Plus, you have way too many app permissions.
The app asks for too many permissions. I can turn them off manually in settings on my Samsung Galaxy S8. That's too much trouble though. What guarantee do I have that Messenger won't turn permissions back on? So, I use Chrome Browser & go to my FB profile page. Request the desktop site through Chrome settings. Then I'm able to view my messages.
No matter what I do to my settings, it will always show me as active anytime I use my phone. I want to have the option to reply to messages on my own time, but instead I get messages from people who can see me online and expect an immediate answer. Why are they seeing me online when I've switched the active button off?
Now you can see your call history and missed calls—all in one place.
