I’ve learned about the new gradient update and I have seen a lot of my friends have already the new update. So learning about this and being really interested I also updated my app but to my surprise, it didn’t change. I was okay at it at first and some said that they actually had the older version again so I thought that was just a little peek. Today I had seen a lot of people with the new update and I had my hopes up thinking that it is finally time. After updating I got disappointed of the conclusion that nothing changed. I really like the app and the update changes nothing with the way I can communicate with others. I just want an explanation of what is going on and why is this happening.

No voice on video call

My messenger is messed up again, it has been corrected when I wrote you before. But after i have updated it the previous problem happened again. Whenever i make video call i have to use my headset for the person on the other end to hear me. What’s happening to my messenger? I’ve uninstalled it and installed it numerous times again after the update, but still during video call the other party can’t hear me. There has been previous updates, but still, I can’t be heard by the person I’m calling during video calls. Please help! I’ve just updated the messenger hoping that it will correct the no audio during video but still, no audio to the other party. I can hear them but they can’t hear me. Please do something about this.
This is getting serious. At first there wasn’t any sound during video calls. Now there isn’t any sound on video that is sent thru messenger.
Calls using Viber and FaceTime is perfectly fine. What’s wrong with messenger????? I’ve uninstalled and installed it so many times! I’ve updated it every time there is an update, but instead of it getting better it’s getting worst. Please do something please

broken app

i love how easy it is to use this app and it makes contacting your loved once just as simple as a click away but there are a few things i’m having problems with and some of these i believe are caused by bugs. firstly, the “active” feature doesn’t work on my account even if i try logging into other devices, people who i’m pretty sure are active and talking to me at the moment don’t show up as “active” but instead shows up as “active 1 min ago” and when someone messages you, you automatically become “active” for example, you’re asleep but you receive a message from somebody, that person will think you’re active because messenger marks you as “active” even if you are nowhere near your device. secondly, in the middle of calls i’m having, messenger suddenly ends it even if my wi-fi connection is working just fine and so is the person on the other line’s connection. thirdly, this has been happening to me most of the time and my friends as well, the ellipsis that shows that the person is typing is usually just a glitch. it shows that the person is typing when they’re actually not which makes the receiver unhappy because they think that they’re going to be receiving a message when it turns out to be false. lastly, the chat streak feature suddenly disappeared even though you messaged that certain person within the 24-hour period. i hope you could address these problems as soon as possible because many of us users are having trouble with these issues.
