Messenger sucks for Android, and iOS is better. I hate how when I turn off my phone, the call doesn't stay, but instead, it ends after a few seconds. Another issue is when I get off the app and on another, my calls end after a few seconds sometimes. Overall, video calls aren't as efficient and convenient because of it ending a lot in certain cases.

I've been using Messenger for years. As with any app, each new version either improves on existing features and/or adds brand new ones. The face-time-like call ability is fabulous (especially when picking stuff up for someone and being able to show them quickly not only the item you grabbed, but all other similiar items instead of taking pics or trying to describe it). Being able to share stuff instead of posting to a FB page is great as well as its use w/ buying and/or selling on Marketplace.

I'm not sure what's been "fixed" in the recent updates but the app has gone down hill. I haven't been getting messages for minutes to hours after the other person has sent them and it shows thst they were sent then and there. Also taking away the ability to enlarge the emoticon at the bottom right is crazy that was an amazing feature 😞. I hope these issues get resolved soon.
