This app has progressively gotten worse. And now the so-called encryption. You mean to tell me you didn't have this before ??. Lots of bugs with the latest update. Status lights are either on or off at any time. Send or received messages, are lagging for hours before it shows on my home screen. Messages from the other party, are not highlighted in bold white. Until I click on that person and then it shows. Read receipts not showing that person viewed the message. Tech support no reply to issues

I'm really disappointed that the new update for messenger removed the option to enlarge the icon reply on the right-hand side near the text box. I prefer being able to send the different/varying sizes/levels of the icon to express varying degrees of intensity of my reactions. Please fix this and bring back the size variations as soon as possible! Thank you.

The last couple updates have rendered the app useless as a messaging application on mobile devices. Pics and more specifically videos are "unable to send" despite being sell within the parameters for video messaging convenience. Just about ready to uninstall and disable any form of meta messaging. Edit: a 50mb update and suddenly TWO GIGABYTES gone??? That's it. 0 stars if i could. Your incompetence as a company is too much.
