Would like to be able to easily see what time a message was sent/received/read from both/all people in the chat. Also says the other person is typing when they really aren't, even if they aren't active. Won't deliver my messages quickly, even when we're both on Wi-Fi. Seems to do that in the early morning after hours of inactivity. Even after hours of it sending, it won't deliver. Won't show last time someone was active if it's over 2 hours, or whenever it wants.
Annoying sounds I hate the sound I get anytime someone sends me a message. Most times i have to put my phone on silent before chatting with friend to avoid the annoying sound and notification. I wish there will be a way to turn off the sound of the messenger completely for all chat.
Ever since the update, all that's happened is that it says people are active when they're really not and now the app crashes every time I tried to call. It's pissing me off because I can't even call my bf who's two hours away anymore! Plus, you have way too many app permissions.
Links don't open externally. I can't even see an option to open links externally. In app browser should be flat out banned by Google app design guidelines. It's such a horrible dirty concept. Let me use my browser of choice, not your horrible version of one.
No matter what I do to my settings, it will always show me as active anytime I use my phone. I want to have the option to reply to messages on my own time, but instead I get messages from people who can see me online and expect an immediate answer. Why are they seeing me online when I've switched the active button off?
The like button is very near to chat box (the box where you input text). Almost too near the emoji / sticker button. So many times a like gets sent accidentally while trying to access emoji. Secondly, a sticker gets sent directly as soon as you touch it. It should first arrive in chat box then should go after hitting the send key. If these two features are taken care of then definitely 4 stars.
Now you can see your call history and missed calls—all in one place.
