DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP! Facebook is desperately trying to become Snapchat and it's not working. The new layout is extremely confusing and they've hidden half of the features that I normally use. The text bar in which to type normal text is way smaller and when someone else types and sends a message the app no longer automatically goes to the bottom of the convo. Now every time someone says something you have to manually scroll down to see what was said! They've added a "story" type feature that takes up the top 1/4 of the screen and every little thing you do brings up a notification to add it to your "How's Your Day?" storyline. Facebook.. You're not Snapchat. Be original. If I wanted to add a picture to my story, I would be using Snapchat. I want to talk to my friends via text which is why I'm using messenger.
A great tool with few major flaws. Those stories are not terrible but many people don't use them and don't want to see them. A simple switch to get rid of them will help everybody. Also could you please add a setting to use the Android default emoticons? I prefer them over the Facebook ones and also there are more of them on Android. Also I'm not sure whether it's a bug or a feature but ecerytime I open a group chat I have to scroll down to the bottom of the chat as it opens somewhere else. Fix those issues and the Messenger could be a perfect app
Messenger needs to have a feature where acquaintances cannot directly call me without my permission. We also need something which can set a time during which I am willing to receive calls. We seriously need to have a feature which allows users to select settings pertaining to who they are willing to receive calls from and hours of availability. Other than that, this is a good app. But until those two changes are made, the bad outweighs the good. Additionally, once the games were added to the app, it quits 6-10+ times a day. I have a neice a "nudges me to play words with friends" and frequently the app will go for days only loading to 70%. I have to constantly unintal and reinstall it.
I have had issues since the last update. Along with Facebook app it keeps logging me out making me verify who I am and stating "session expired" at 1st I just kept logging in. Then I couldn't get into either. So I uninstalled and re installed. Now... messenger does not work. Installs. Starts up.... and just sits there with the fairly blue circle. For hours. Then claims there is no network. Messenger is the only way I connect with some people so I kind of need this! What's the problem and how are u going to fix this?
Back then, Messenger was very good and straight-forward. Now there are too many useless features that should be on the Facebook app, not on Messenger (ex: birthday, share your day, etc...). There are also useless sections suggesting me to do something like talking to someone I haven't talked to for the longest of time or become online. I CHOOSE to stay offline and not talking to some people, so those are absolutely senseless reminders. Worst thing is, even after I hide those sections, they keep popping up again and again. Also, recently, the emojis and stickers are placed within 1 button only, so now it takes at least 3 taps to get a sticker. I use stickers much more than emojis, so personally, I think this is such a nuisance. Back then stickers have their own button and it was so much easier. All in all, I think Messenger should be kept simple and straight-forward, or at least, let the users choose what they want to see (I'm talking about the useless sections that usually pop up somewhere after several latest conversations).
The app is a good app overall but I had a buddy who wanted to use my phone for fb so we were gonna both log in to where all we gottta do is go to your settings in messenger an go to switch user it takes soooo long an sometimes just won't log the person in at all..idk why. I have 10gb of data an just re newer it like a week ago..
