Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
It's perfect but there's one problem that I have with it that makes me REALLY ANGRY! The amount of space of a video that you can fit into a message is appalling! I tried to fit an almost 10 minutes long video into a message and it only fits 1/3 of it! Plus it took about 5 minutes to process the 3 minute long video!

My preferred messaging app but recent issues are driving me mad. Phone calls automatically connect to Bluetooth so go straight to my watch which I can't seem to turn off. Also, notifications appear in the middle of the screen over the top of everything else. Again, can't seem to change this.

Why only a 3 star rating, when it is one of the dominant messaging apps? Because it isn't secure, irrespective of the end to end encryption it claims to employ. It is great that only admins can see certain changes, but admins should decide if a group needs disappearing messages or not. Indeed, it should not be possible for a hacker to take over another person's account !! I have received messages from people who didn't send them, many times...this is an identity issue and needs to be fixed ASAP

• Increased the group participant limit to 1024 • Easily see groups in common - you can now search for a contact and see the groups you have in common with them. • Group admins can now control who joins their groups. In Groups, Go to Group Settings > enable ‘Approve new participants' to get started.
