Super disappointed with this update! The speaker phone never works no matter how many times you switch it to it. Bluetooth disconnects it only wants to work through the ear piece of the phone which is extremely frustrating! The old messenger wasn't perfect but it's 1 million times better than this! Please fix it or go back to the way it was, I don't even ever want to use it after this terrible update!!!!

Conflict

The bugs are endless. Used to be a great app, but now there are all kinds of problems. Messages remaining undelivered, previous messages remaining in the text box after being sent. Video calls sometimes the camera is off for the other person when it actually isn't. The pop out of the video call glitches out frequently and gets stuck. Occasionally the options for the video call are not present (mute, camera on/off, etc.) And a lot more I can't even fit into this review. About to get a dif app.

Kill All Humans

What the heck did they do to messenger? The bugs are endless. Search function doesn't work. I can type a word and look for the message I want, but when I tap on it, I get a black empty chat that never loads. Profile function doesn't work, it just shows a semi transparent black screen on top of the previous screen. After this happened, I used the back button, and went back to the (i) section. It never loaded, just showed a completely black screen. Even the bug report function failed!!
