Messages not going through until the app is reopened. Half the time it doesn't want to connect to the network. Which all other apps and everything else works fine. And connection is strong according to test. I get calls from friends that don't show up anywhere. Just ring/vibrate without the ability to answer. For however long my friend decides to wait on the other line. Which is also very annoying when they are drunk calling. 🙄

Functional (barely) but buggy. Had to reinstall twice to try to restore full functionality. When trying to edit photos, only a black box shows up instead of seeing the option to save, etc., (because text is black on a black background). When sharing posts from my Facebook feed to a Messenger thread, the shared link won't even open when you try to click on it. The only way to ensure a link will open is to include the URL.

I'm not even sure how this interaction works, but this app freezes my entire phone so frequently... After some testing, I realized it's caused by the bubble overlay. If I try to close the bubble overlay and get a message at the same time, the entire bottom half of my phone becomes unresponsive until I restart my phone. This happens multiple times a day. It's actually insane. Not using this garbage app until this issue is rectified.
