Make it easier to delete unwanted/spam messages and block FB fake profiles
I like Messenger but I would give it a 5 star rating if it were easier to be able to delete and then block unwanted spam messages without having to actually go into the message. You can easily delete a message from people you are friends with by hovering over the message and then selecting delete, but you can’t do that with spam messages. It would be great if you could both delete a fake/spam message and then block the profile by hovering over the message without opening it up. I know they don’t see you have opened the message, but it’s not the point. It’s not easy or obvious how you delete the unwanted message and then block the person. In fact it’s easier to block the person/fake profile than it is to delete a message from them!
Deleted messages going back years ?
You’ve deleted conversations going back years with friends and loved ones in one of these updates right ? Suddenly noticed this when scrolling back through a conversation and then found this to be true across the board ! That’s a pretty complicit decision you’ve made there without warning . Like any messenger/ texting service communication is at the heart of it and being in control of the RESOURCE of that vital and not YOUR DECISION . We should be given control or at least warning of this don’t you think ? I’ve lost valuable conversations going back years across the board . They all start from January of this year now which means 5/6 years of messages in some cases have been lost ?!
Another gripe is you constantly force update by intentionally making previous versions malfunction I believe , particularly in the sound function . It happens each time and can’t be a coincidence . Why are you so determined to force us onto the latest update I wonder ?
As others have mentioned the inability to disable the ‘ active now ‘ is really compromising too and needs sorting .
Apart from that it’s decent enough though by enabling certain giffs and extra emoticons I’m not sure carte Blanche access to the contents of our messages is a satisfactory trade ? As always our privacy rights are in violation under a mirage of ‘ new exciting features ‘ to dull the pain .
Great app but I have noticed a glitch no one is talking about.
I’ve used the messenger app for what seems like forever, I’ve had no issues with it other than the sound on calls being quiet which I know is not the fault of my phone, other than that everything is great.
The one glitch I’ve noticed and have asked other iPhone users about and they have confirmed it’s happening to them as well, is that sometimes notifications that come through (not the red circle by the app) and do not go away, for example I received a message about a week ago and it kept the notification in my notification wall even though I had pressed it and viewed the message, I deleted the notification by swiping it across and selecting delete but it came back within 24hours. It’s not really a big problem but it often does this with a few messages and they keep coming back, it’s a little frustrating and I often find myself thinking that I’ve missed messages from friends.
