MY MESSAGE DID TOO SEND!! Ugh it's like with every update there's another bug. I assumed with this last update, they would have fixed the "your message was not sent" bug, but they did NOT! Every photo sent, I receive this message. They also made it so each notification went through Facebook AND messenger (that might have been Facebook), and I had to turn that off. Seriously so annoying, but texts don't have the file sharing capacity as this, so..ehh.

This app is basically a part time job trying to get the 200 notifications cleared off. Otherwise you cannot trust the notification of new messages. That's why it could never be the defacto messaging platform. Even worse, you can never actually clear off ask the modifications, so you basically have to go thru life eternally with an unread message that you can never clear off.

Today, all pictures are replaced with "This message is not available on this app version." No updates available. They show up fine on my laptop and for the recipient. Also, over the last couple weeks when I send a picture, it won't completely send unless I back out of the message thread. This app is set to unrestricted battery usage, but I don't receive notifications until I actually open the app, then suddenly all the notifications populate at the same time. Phone's battery saver is not on.
