Typical Google. They filled it with clutter and made it confusing and difficult to use! Can you please make a more user friendly version of this app. One that is more similar to the old one. Why are there over 5,000 contacts on my list. It puts people from Google plus in my contacts list which is completely ridiculous and annoying! I should only have around 30 close friends and relatives on this list. Please fix ASAP!
I had to get a separate text message app because hangouts will not support sms anymore (for whatever reason I don't understand). Now I have to operate so many apps. What's even worse is that this will not send pictures! I thought it's been sent but the recipient never received it.
1.Can zoom in on some photos & not others in both portrait & landscape orientation. 2.Quick reply does not have landscape support. 3.Cannot use quick reply if more than 1 new message. 4.No dark theme. 5.Should be able to integrate encrypted backup SMS/MMS to Google Drive. 6.Missing "message received" confirmation option. 7.Missing "retry all" when multiple messages fail to download.
Only problems I have is it can't have delayed messaging, like setting up to send a text at a specific time that you premade sometime earlier, and it it could the ability to put backgrounds for individual people and options for the messaging bubbles (like making them see thru or them having little details on the bubbles, like frames.) And maybe more settings for individuals like vibrations for different people or different text tones. Everything else is great, I'd just like to see more personalization.
This app is still a joke. Google continues to perpetuate exactly what iOS users think of android: it's "unfinished." It's always been a problem for Google and I see they have yet to solve it, as this app is still missing many features and can be annoyingly glitchy. Is it too much to ask for a messaging app comparable to imessage?
the update to this new look is a disaster. it was a cleaner look before. i suggest you fall back to messenger 1.0. When I first got my Pixel, i made it so it wouldn't update the app and kept it at factory version. Then you ruined that with a Pixel system update and I could only use Messenger 2. shame on you. Put an option for Messenger 1 please.
