Hello, I am writing to report two issues with the reaction emoji feature. First, the reaction emoji is randomly activating after I send a message, even though no one is pressing it. This issue is causing confusion and disruption in our communication. Second, the feature that allowed us to click on a message and be taken to the top of all missed messages has been removed. This feature was very useful for quickly catching up on missed conversations. I kindly request that these issues be addressed

I have had Facebook and the messenger app for years on end, But here recently I have not been able to send voice clips. I am able to record them, but I am not able to send them, which is a waste of time of me recording them. They disappear after failing to, I have reported this issue multiple times with no help, I am having a similar issue with sending videos and pictures. It takes it forever to send, if it sends it at all. It gives you no choice but to have end-to-end encryption applied

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.
