New Update

It’s a very good and useful app but on my phone it hasn’t changed to the new version. Before one month it changed and some minutes later it changed again to the old version and I really like the new one. I deleted the app and installed it again but it’s still the same. All my friends have the newest version but I don’t. I’ve updated my phone and still nothing (iPhone 7). Can you do something about it?

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

Updates are for the better not for the worse

Every time I update the app, something is worse. Seriously, developers, please why is it so hard to improve the development of this app? You know what we want. At the moment we are happy with something, we update and it is gone.
Please, bring back the little icon that shows us that the message is read, we don’t want the time to appear next to the message we sent or received. We want to know if the person read the message. Why do you have to make the whole process slower and make us check if someone read the message or not?
Thanks in advance.
