Review from A Google User
Problems Dont really see the advantage in the new UI. 2 things I'd like you to change: 1. Orientation, cant go portrait mode on my asus eee pad. 2. Live sync issues, i only get notified about new messages when i go into the app, not by the notification bar, which is annoying
Sign In Problem Sometimes it automatically sign me out and when that happens, I cannot sign in unless I clear out data from App Setting. This is troubling because clearing data means when signed in again, I have to wait for long hours for every message to be updated. When updating conversations, when I try to scroll up, it brings me back below. Please check on the signing in issue because it has become tiresome and troublesome.
Flashing and jumping screens. On a Samsung Galaxy note 4 and Samsung galaxy Tab S4 10.1, I have noticed very inconvenient flashes of messages. In calls the interface will flash or move for a split second and on the phone the same happens in messaging. The interface relocates to extremely old messages and even whilst typing the screen "jumps". Please fix. It's disturbing. I'm uninstalling updates as this is a new phone. Same incidents on my tablet which is older. The tablet does not however have messaging jumps. Aside from that, great.
I can't even log in now after updating to the newest version. What is going on? Why do I have to sign in each time you made an update? I already set it to save my data, but zero working. Please fix it immediately. :'(
Video freeze. Please stop the video from freezing on my end every 30 seconds or so. It happens without fail every time I use the app since about 3 or 4 updates ago (on my s7 edge). Before then it was never happening. Deleting the app and reinstalling does not help.
Trype Still can't fix the age old limited and incorrect status display. Downloads just a waste of download bandwidth when "What's New" frequently shows nothing or old information. Totally out of control "development". Utterly useless developer.
New version doesn't work with Bluetooth headset Completely useless for handsfree calls as the newer / latest version doesn't use Bluetooth for audio. 2 mount ago it was fine. They have also scrued up the audio control on Macs... New versions means regressions in the most important functionalities.
