Review from Zachary McCluskey
Just ok. I like the interface, as it is intuitive and attractive. Sharing photos, location, and audio is very easy, but I wish that I could disable the stickers as I do not use them and they are the default option when I press the share button. I really wish the enhanced features worked, that would really push this app to be better imo. I attempt to set them up but it gets stuck and says please excuse the wait and never works.
It's works really well... UPDATE 11/22/17: I have a "Direct Text" widget for a specific contact on my home screen. When I select it, the message thread pops up, then it totally reloads that contacts thread (it disappears, then reloads, and pops back up again). Almost defeats the purpose of having the widget in the first place when now it seems faster just to open the Android Messages app. Been using these widgets for YEARS w/o a problem until now.
Terrible. Spontaneously doesn't send messages to certain phones or receive messages from certain phones. Thank goodness for Facebook messenger. Not sure if this is messenger fault or Google fault re the pixel XL, but just terrible. Failing only simple purpose.
The newest version is very un-minimalist as you try to go attach a photo which is most commonly used function... Used to be very clutter free but now the emojis and stickers are stuck at top and the emojies and stickers are so redundant especially if you use Google keyboard
You fixed nothing! Still can't delete more than one message at a time. You didn't implement batch operations for messages in a conversation. What are you doing ?! You fixed NOTHING! Still didn't implement batch delete for messages in a conversation, You didn't fix anything!, still Can't delete multiple messages to cleanup a conversation, why don't you listen? !!! please implement batch operations, batch delete for messages in a conversation. Still can't batch delete messages in a conversation. Can't select multiple messages in a conversation, if you want to delete several messages in a conversation you have to delete one by one or delete the whole conversation
Randomly some texts are not being sent to my contacts. Also I'm not receiving all text from my contacts. The lost messages are random. So go though. Some don't. Please fix this.
Good for sms and mms but needs a dark theme so I am not blinded checking my messages before bed. Also please add more stickers
