Corruption and hacking BE CAREFUL PLEASE
I love messenger and there’s nothing wrong with the app, but I just want to let you all know that there is someone going around and sending people these “Is that you 😧” messages and then when you open the links it takes you to a page where you sign in (it does come up saying it’s a yt video). This has lead to my grandfathers accounts all being hacked and his computer being hacked as well. My Facebook account was hacked and I have changed my password. It had sent this link to all of my friends of Facebook and I had to message them all letting them know not to open it. The device signed into my account was a Samsung galaxy 3 or something along the lines of that. Just letting y’all know. (This is in Australia I’m un aware of it happening anywhere else)
PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
Messenger app crashing
I thought updates fixes issues and improves overall performance? How come After I updated messenger on my iPad yesterday, it kept crashing? Everytime I try to open, everything goes black and freezes the whole screen. Please do something about it and make sure future updates don’t cause more problem. Another thing, the features in the old version like maybe until January were way better than the current version (eg. the video icon looks like it’s blinking when you are talking to someone and the person is on your chat/conversation at the same time, it tells you when the one you are calling is on another call, and it shows without having to open the conversation to check whether the last message has been read or not. The latest update is worse. Sometimes it doesn’t show someone is calling when I’m currently on another call. I just found out I got a missed call when I went to the conversations list and it shows I got one from a friend. What if it’s an important call that one of messenger users miss because it didn’t show there’s another one calling??? This is something that needs to be fixed the soonest. I hope you can enable Live Photo sharing as well
It’s ok but lots of bugs
Lately more and more bugs have been popping up that have been interfering with the quality of life. The most constant but admittedly least annoying one is how the badge counter does not disappear even when all messages have been read. Another error is that when video calling, it will default to a 0.5x angle on the outside camera when switching to it and there’s no way to change it. Another rare but frustrating bug is that sometimes photos won’t send at all, saying that “The picture couldn’t send”.
The worst bug however is that sometimes when I try to scroll through my emojis it won’t let me, it will just close the keyboard so I have to use what’s in my recent. I know it’s a Messenger problem and not my phone since it doesn’t do that to me on any other app.
So yeah. Super annoying errors especially since I use the app daily. I would appreciate it if the developers focused on these bugs in the next patch fix. Many thanks.
