Update: its now over 6 months since fb msnger fails for voice and video calls if a bluetooth audio device (i. E. smartwatch) is connected. If i call from my phone via messenger audio or video it instantly fails. Turn off bluetooth and all works. Fb msngr needs to ignore (or use) connected devices. Please fix!
The app asks for too many permissions. I can turn them off manually in settings on my Samsung Galaxy S8. That's too much trouble though. What guarantee do I have that Messenger won't turn permissions back on? So, I use Chrome Browser & go to my FB profile page. Request the desktop site through Chrome settings. Then I'm able to view my messages.
Annoying sounds I hate the sound I get anytime someone sends me a message. Most times i have to put my phone on silent before chatting with friend to avoid the annoying sound and notification. I wish there will be a way to turn off the sound of the messenger completely for all chat.
After the recent update, it's very difficult to navigate through the app. I'm having a difficult time locating certain categories. Also, I don't like ads appearing on the homepage. Contacting relatives, and friends has become a problem. When I'm communicating with someone, the call will disconnect. This app has been going downhill for quite some time. I hope the developers repair issues, but I won't hold my breath.
I was so against downloading messenger since it became an independent app due to all the permissions, but I finally downloaded ACCIDENTALLY few months ago and am now getting "unfortunately messenger has stopped: report/ok" over and over again on my screen ALL day now relentlessly and when I try to open messenger; which I never use, it force stops immediately everytime. Not sure if it's the update or what but this is highly frustrating
It keeps on logging me out whenever I switch from one account to another. Once I've entered in the account I'll use, a pop-up will say session expired. It's really inconvenient especially when facebook messenger is my way of communicating with my family who are abroad and far. Edit: Updated it today and it's just a white screen. Nothing else is showing and it's really annoying.
Now you can see your call history and missed calls—all in one place.
