Video call usually works fine. That should be the focus, not stapling a news feed to an unrelated product. As far as I can tell, there is no way to disable that portion or the notifications it sends. I would recommend other apps/platforms that focus more on their core communications products. There is also a bot problem that is very persistant, and there are no tools for the user to at the bare minimum only accept messages from known contacts.

My only complaint involves recent changes to the interface. You used to be able to switch to a Bluetooth device ON THE FLY! You could also use a bluetooth speaker and run the mikes in the phone or tablet. You can do NEITHER now. If you put on earbuds during a call the call is DISCONNECTED! This is a giant leap backwards! The interface is totally oversimplified now, not many options. They needed to have well enough let alone and instead produced a much inferior product from before.

You guys keep making unnecessary changes, I used to be able to take multiple photos no problem, now its a whole extra step of having to back out, and press the icon again, why the regression? Also, I'm using a Samsung zfold3, the camera function used in the app for some reason isn't accurate. On the display I can have a photo perfect in frame but after the photo the shot is is taking a larger frame, making it badly taken since it's capturing more of the environment then I want.
