What is the point of having backups if it just deletes them when you uninstall? Just updating this app caused the app the break and so after trying forever by clearing cache and so on, it only worked once I deleted all of my data and past conversations. Which I needed severely. Useless. The point of a backup is if SOMETHING GOES WRONG.
I reallllllly do not like the way sent photos show up in chat. It blows up the image and takes up the entire screen. I really wish it was like other chat apps and displayed the whole image as a preview without taking up a huge amount of the screen. I also do not like how if you change the chat theme, it changes for both people. Me an my friend are constantly changing it back and forth and I wish we could change them individually.
I love the new update. It lags though. I sometimes won't get notified if I receive a text, and when I send a text, it takes a while for it to be sent. It can't be my cell provider or Internet service, because someone sitting literally right next to me has the same exact phone, service provider, and Internet speed--and they had zero problems with theirs. But overall, I'm really enjoying the new updates so far.
Stupid app. I have more than one device, whenever I switch to another one, I have to get a verification code from a device with a message capable (a phone ). If I have that device at hand, why should I use this one. Please learn from Telegram, it recognize many devices, just verify once and all devices can be used. I can only keep one app in one device. This is a useless app. Use Telegram instead. 👎👎👎👎👎
what's going on Google? STILL NO SMS, do you read reviews? Your fans and people who use your products are asking for an option on their phone for sms and you still haven't given the people what they want. This app will never go anywhere unless it has SMS even some new apps made from developers not as big as Google have Sms. stop playing around and give us SMS already. You're a joke google. THUMB UP MY COMMENT SO GOOGLE CAN SEE THIS.
For some reason the app isn't consistent across phones. For example, it was announced that the new "selfie gif" feature was released at the beginning of last month, yet the Nexus 6p (previous Google flagship) still hasn't got this update, when a cheap bottom of the range phone has. Whilst this feature isn't necessarily important, it shows the lack of concern for making sure there is a level of consistency.
