Horrible new design

WHY did you make a new design??? The old one was much more elegant, stylish and nice to looke at. This? This looks like something a five yo would drawers. Huge letters, all black and bold, huge messages... Nothing is simpler about this design. Bring us back the old times!
Maybe you can let the user choose between designs and make us happy again...

Nice! But i have few ideas...

Hey, this is very good app! I like this! But I think, there is some things, what is good to add.
There is a dark mode, very good idea! But i like a day(light) mode and I want to use both. So I’m using day mode in the day and dark mode in the night. But- can u do a auto switching? Light mode in the day and dark mode in the night.
And one more idea...
There are no much colors for the chat... just few. There aren’t any of my favorite colors and i like to pick black color, but is only for secret chat. Can u please add a free palet of colors?
Thank u!<3

Worth it? I say it's not!

Facebook Messenger is the best app in terms of reaching pretty much anyone alive today. The only thing you need to know to text them is their name. It's also good that you can sign up without having to create a Facebook account. However, Messenger is one of the few apps that don't have end-to-end encryption turned on by default, which is probably motivated by Facebook's current financial model - making the users the products by selling sensitive information to 3rd parties. This is a fundamental flaw in the way Facebook operates that should not be tolerated by its users. Thus, to everyone who is not willing to give up their right to privacy I recommend Whatsapp.
