I got the latest update and ever since that, it became very laggy. The messages keep disappearing then it will appear and disappear again. Everytime I type, the typing logo keeps popping up and down and it's so annoying. Also, there are instances that even when I have connection, my messages wouldn't send, it takes a long time for it to be delivered. There was a time when I was messaging my partner, the screen became all black and it say 'No conversation in this chat' I hope you can fix this.

The app screws up pretty often, sometimes it doesn't want to load. I also don't like how when someone reacts to one of my messages, it pops up as a notification; when I open the app to try to find the reaction notification, there is nothing there. It is showing all of my messages as read, so I don't even know what person reacted to the message. I just have to open every single message I have until I find the message that was reacted to.

Many bugs: Notification bar; dont get messages sometimes and doesnt show I'm in a call anymore, Videos and pictures: dont load or freeze and messenger crashes and freezes too to where I have to restart the app. Calling; cant hear the other person or vise versa for multiple times throughout a call (every 1 or 2 minutes). Not on the app; get notifications that the app is using my camera or microphone when I havent opened the app. What's with all these bugs I'm experiencing???

I use this as my primary messaging app on Android and it basically doesn't work properly anymore. The chat heads are slow, the keyboard comes up and blocks the actual section where you would see your message. The previous build worked because even if horizontal, you could preview your message and easily make changes and now you can't. Please fix this.
