Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic, but some features removed
Really like messenger over other apps because of things like polls and nicknames which aren’t on other big apps.
However these have been removed from messenger recently (I heard its only temporary but I hope they make a return!)
Also the feature to scroll through previous photos and videos from a conversation is a feature which has been removed.
Defo 5 stars before these were removed
The voice and video???? Absolutely terrible experience.
Okay, the voice message thing is terrible, for the life of me that thing is not user friendly. I couldn’t get some of those voice messages to send and kept having to start over and over and over and over and I was just getting frustrated. The message just sits on the screen blinking and all I can do it close out of the message. Sometimes couldn’t even do that, there’s no “X” to close out, I just have to close out the entire app and restart it. Please fix the voice message send thing. Its an absolute nightmare.
So then I resulted to sending your 20 second video and my god! The thing closes each time someone says something in the chat! So then I had to close messenger and go and take an actual video from my iPhone camera and only then did it finally work.
And even when you play the three minute video after while the sound just cuts out and you have to tap the sound icon until the sound reappears again.
