Ratings and Reviews
- Doesn't stop PUSH notifications on mobile
- Seems to be web based, rather slow
- No Apple Silicon support
- Some features doesn't work (sharing pictures for example), and the only way of error recovery is the app restart, which doesn't solve anything
- Sometimes conversation is scrolled to random place instead of the newest message that I left the conversation between switching to another one
It's cool, but...
The app is very usefull, because it's easier to chat without using your web browser. But I would suggest some changes in notofications. There should be a possibility to change the tone of notifications, the one now is very oldschool. What is more, it would be better if the icon of the notification was the profile pic of the person who is sending a message rather than the icon of Messenger itself. I know it's just my opinion, but maybe consider those changes. Greetings :)
It works well apart from when it doesn't
Generally I enjoy the app - it's just like the mobile one, nothing complicated. Unfortunatelly recently it started malfunctioning as if some of the graphic stuff isn't fully loaded (avatars, sometimes photos etc.) and is also laggy. Something went wrong and I'm not quite sure what happened. Basically the app seems to struggle in some way and is 60% - 75% loaded all the time.
