Facing very serious issue with this messenger app
From yesterday morning when I was trying to send messages to my friends on Facebook, within 20 seconds it gotten closed and still it gets closed a while ago. It was happening whole day and still it is happening. I am not understanding suddenly what does happen to this app. This first time I am facing issue in messenger application. I don’t know what to do and how to do to resolve it. So please take a serious look into this issue and resolve it ASAP.
Laggy slow and heat up
After last update which reduced the app size but it also make the app very laggy and slow and whenever i use it my phone heat up after a little use it was never happen before the update and all the other applications in my phone do not heat it up even after heavy use. I kindly request you please check this issue its very laggy slow and the heating issue and also whenever i load images of a conversation sometime it’s just stuck and the search in conversation is also not working. Please please solve it
Iphone 7 ios 13.4.1 and 13.4 also i know you already knew it
And now it uses battery like a monster please see this review and fix the battery issue and for your concern my battery health is perfect it’s your application that consumes so much battery power.
App can be better
As watsapp has taken the world by storm which is also taken over by facebook now. We need to advance our in-built messenger as well. I was a avid user of this app but do not use more now for the below reasons
- No way of replying to certain messages in groups
- Group chats are not very user friendly
- Deleting some parts of a chat is a pain one doesnt get the option of deleting multiple chat messages together unlike watsapp.
- There is a lag observed when you are chatting to someone who isnt your friend. The messages are delivered late. If the person is your fb friend it goes faster.
- Status is green despite of a person is using messenger or browsing fb. This is misleading at times as one feels the person is online on messenger but they might not even have messenger active on their phones. So hence a different color should depict if only surfing fb and when available on messenger.
Hope these above features are worked upon for people like us to use it more once again 😃
