Please fix the issue with Android phones and the touch screen! Also I hate the new layout of the in call screen. Why the heck is the end button way up in the corner and so small? I don't like it. Oh and there is an issue with pictures taken in the app, they rotate for no reason and it's very inconvenient to have to edit the photo and turn it every single time especially because I usually only use that camera option when I'm in a hurry anyway.

When I open the app It flashes like a strobe light with an error message stating, "something went wrong" However, it is flashing so frantically that I can't click anything on the screen. I have to then shut my phone off. When it comes back on I Uninstall the app for a few hours and reinstall it for it to work. But it only works for maybe a day before it does it again. I make sure it's updated and everything. But it is way too much work to properly view a message.

I will give this as low of a rating as possible and leave it uninstalled until they add an option to completely turn off the ability to be audio and video called. The calls even override my phone's Do Not Disturb mode and having messenger notifications turned off. This has been an issue ever since it was introduced, and a few times a year I check to see if they corrected it, and haven't. Due to that reason alone I will not use this app even though I completely love every other thing about it.
