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

Since the latest update: -I've accidentally deleted a conversation, only 30 minutes ago. It still is in my search results, but I can't reinstate it to the thread. Reason: not available for this app version!! -When I send photos (say 35), messenger arbitrarily sends them in 2 groups instead of individually. They are stacked, so you have to click on EACH stack to view photos. That is great, BUT messenger divides that 35 into 2 groups, of say 20 and 19, making those groups contain duplicates

I have had this app for years, all of a sudden I can't access it anymore. The screen I get says try again, but nothing happens. I hit the back button on my phone & get a screen that tells me to sign into it, but when I tap the continue button I go back to the no access screen. I emailed support, apparently thats a bogus email account, as I get no responce at all. And update your sound emojis.
