Props for the dark mode.

Update: Dark mode is still the single feature in messenger that would set it apart from other messaging apps. The Fb app should see of it as well, though.

Messenger now with the new, simple look and dark mode enabled looks absolutely gorgeous. Pretty much the first time I’m rating with four stars. Keep it up! Haven’t stumbled into any issues as of yet, however as far as I know, messenger still degrades the quality of sent images/videos, which must be considered if you guys ever wanna reach a five star rating. I really wanna stress the importance of seamlessly sending highest/original quality images and videos over messenger.

This is more like a question/suggestion regarding the app. Isn’t there a ‘mute option’ for only the Messenger?
It would be so great if there was a Silent Mode for the whole app rather than just the option to mute a specific person. The reason why is because e.g I don’t want to turn on the silent mode on my phone during the night because I want to be available for emergencies. However there are friends from different time zone who can send me messages while it is in the middle of the night for me and I don’t want to wake up for the notification.
(I know I could turn off only the internet and would still be available for calling but this option would be so great)
Anyway this is a great app, Thanks for your hard work on this! :)

Please get it fixed!

I used to love the app, I was using it with the update for a while since I had installed it with test flight. There had always been other small issues like the face time bugging, or not having the best quality, but I was ok with that, because it was still useable. But yesterday weird stuff started to happen. My phone would not send a single picture in any way possible, and it was highly disturbing. The new update completely dissapeared, and the speed of the text delivery decreased. These are really annoying and I am pretty angry about them. Could you guys fix it somehow? I would be so grateful!
