I'd give more than 2 stars if I could reach someone to resolve issue. Whenever I attempt to attach photos/video from gallery, it wont allow me to select them. Of course, I also have to select Gallery from the 3 buttons on the right, but regardless, I cannot select and send. This is very frustrating as I use this for work and used to be able to do this with captions for each pic. Now I have to attach, write caption, send and do it again (from another app!)

Edited to include: I can't get notifications that I have messages . It literally pops up and says "Popup notifications are no longer available in your version of Android" Really?? What is going on with this app, does the app need an update to keep up with the new phones?? I have a Galaxy S22. Used to be a great app but I suddenly can't watch or send videos and their customer service sucks. I've cecked all my settings and they seem fine.... 🤯😖

It's a good app and it does the job but changing from one phone to another is a total nightmare and nobody seems to be able to explain how to do it. The web instructions are confusing and wrong, the independent websites are confusing and wrong, and I just want to transfer everything, including chats, from an old phone and number to a new phone and number. I feel like it would be easier to build a faster than light spaceship and I also feel like it's a lot harder than it absolutely has to be
