Much like others, I have also been experiencing the pop-up to switch accounts. It makes messaging impossible as the pop-up won't go away and allow you to respond to messages. I've tried to clear data/cache as well. I've also re-installed the app and reset my phone. None seems to work, as the pop up seems to just reappear again shortly after. It is becoming difficult to maintain communication with folks, when it was once one of the most reliable ways of communication. Hopefully this gets fixed

For the most part, it's a good app. I will have issues where it kicks me out and when messages won't go through on my end, but the person I'm texting will get it. I know it's not my phone because this is the only app it does it with. The biggest flaw I found is that notifications won't come through hardly at all. I have notifications turned on, but they won't come through. I have to open the app to see the missed texts. Very annoying

Latest update isn't optimized for the latest version of Android and causes all kinds of issues when the chat heads pop up as a new message is recieved, not the least of which is not recognizing any other taps on the screen for a short while after they pop up with a warning that "Messenger is not optimized for the latest version of Android," every single time! FIX IT.
