Bugs to be fixed please

I’m about to check the new update,
With the previous version my messenger would get stuck all the time, especially when I’d send pictures and videos which not even load.
And when I open the app half of the screen is blank as if my phone is broken or something, it happens few times from bottom side of the phone and other times on the right side of it, so I have to restart the app. I please for immediate fix of the bug thank you!

Worst Apple Watch app award.

It’s so bad that I don’t know where to start from. When I press reply the only thing I can see is three blue bubbles. If I press on one I realize the one means emoji the other voice and the other scribble. Why I can’t see any emojis?! Also why I can’t see any photo of any of my friends? What if I have two friends that have the same name? Also the reply just doesn’t work or I just can’t click on some conversations just randomly. Also no gif support and no calls support. What are you people doing?! Are you serious? You are multi billion dollar company and you make an app that a kid from my college can make better than you do? Invest a bit on making a useful interface with no bugs and also I have to say it really is a shame that you are so blinded that you don’t see people’s suggestions people's complains and people’s needs. Of course I am sure you will not even read this review and you will do nothing for fixing those things but I had to say it for other people to see how bad Facebook is being in accepting our ideas.

Request to change my password

It is crazy. Kicks me out over and over again. It tells me to give a new password. I don’t want to do that because I loose my old contacts on messenger. Also every time I am asked so many details which I do not want to give. You are confused with my name and I explained to you that Christie and Christine is the same person. You can identify it from the same photos I sent you as Christie and Christine. I am asked to change the password often with no reason which disturbs me and my contacts.
Pls do something about it. Thank you
