This has been a great app, best messaging app by distance. But it can be greatly improved upon. I still wonder why the developers have left it this boring 💤 I have used GB whatsapp in the past, it's a hundred times better. I don't need all the features in GB integrated here, but at least, some useful ones should be. Like the following; 1. Option to change the default display menu colours, and outlook style. 2. The option to separate individual chats from group chats.

It's crazy to think how dependent we are on such a mediocre app, as it is possible that being the largest messaging app in the world, the photos and videos that are sent lose so much quality. The incredible thing is that if we want to use another app like telegram it is difficult to have conversations out there because people do not use it. Being for now much better messaging app. All wrong

With the new update, I also lost the ability to send gallery photos from within the app, as other users have said. It took me a long time to figure out how to fix it. The other problem I have had for years is: When I am listening to a voice recording and something accidentally covers my phone's light sensor, my screen automatically goes black and the message stops playing. It takes several steps to start the message again, and there is no setting to fix it! It drives me crazy!
