Ratings and Reviews
I’m actually having the exact problem. Sometimes it worked when I simply deleted the app from my phone and then installed it back on. However, for the first time I could go into a conversation and see every image, video or basically any media that have been sent over time. But then, for example, when I close the app and return after some time, the same problem gets back and it’s the same how it was before I did the process of reinstalling of Messenger. Moreover, there’s this issue where it just doesn’t show me if the person is typing or not. I don’t know if that’s a new update “feature” or if that’s another bug it has. So, Please please, have a look at this as it’s starting to be really annoying! Many thanks!
Hello I like the app, BUT. There is some problems on Apple devices, some sended photos not showing up they are shown like blank darker square (in this case sometimes they "load" after few minutes) and in other ir shows "message is not available" .
I am sure that the message isn't deleted and I have to look at the picture on other device like iPad for example. And it is not problem just one device, it sometimes happend on my ipad and I have to switch to iPhone ti see it (and vice versa) .... ot os not by the connection or storage, it happens on Wi-Fi same as on LTE and it is not problem with my account my iPhone X, iPad PRO, iPhone 12 Pro MAX, and my GF's new iPhone SE (2) doing it too.
Please can you check it out? It's little anoying. Thanx.
I have the same problem as many people with voice messages, it shows that “message is not available”. It doesn’t happen with every message but it’s still very annoying, i have to resend the message to hear it..
Plus sent videos in conversation are always lagging, like jumping one sec before and after the moment that you are watching. When i go to all photos and videos, it works flawless, but in conversation i have this problem.
I don’t know why is this happening and i already tried reinstalling the app, resetting iPhone etc. I don’t really know how to get rid of this..
Without this two complications the app would be perfect.
