Ratings and Reviews
I installed messenger yesterday, I was excited to use it and to text my friends and family, I heard there were lots of nice features, there gone now. For example : send the message with an effect, the effect tab is completely gone? Why is that i personally think it’s an amazing thing and you shouldn’t delete it. I’m giving it 3 stars because I heard lots of things have been deleted which is really sad. I could really just use the normal SMS app at this point. I hope you do something with this since by the reviews I don’t think anyone is actually enjoying this version :)
„Faster, easier messenger” test
If I only could give one star or a negatywem number, I definitely would. There are no words on the world that could express how bad this new version that is now being tested is. Options, that I used every week: creating polls, reminders - are gone. Options that I used daily - pressing the main emoji longer to make it bigger, trimming video or turning off the sound before sending - gone. No more autoplay on videos. Forwarding pictures from the ones that have been sent in the conversation before now calls for 5 clicks instead of 2 that you needed. All the pictures in the newly created multimedia album now open in default with a top and bottom bar that covers some od the picture and you have to tap to hide it. And the friggin stories! I unfollowed everyone who ever added to the story because I HATE THEM (stories, not people). Now their stories keep popping up on the second position of active users and you have to unfollow it everytime someone adds a new slide to the story (and some people do it constantly). Imagine: Unfollow. Each. Story. Slide. One. By. One. All of those people are still on my „unfollowed” list. I could go on, because you literally broke everything that was good in messenger.
What was the general idea behind this?
Hello. Good day. I have some things to say about this (I guess) newest, “improved” version of Messenger. The main improvement is that the app is mangled beyond any recognition; using it feels like slamming myself in the foot with a brick. The polls are gone, the emoji tab is gone, the hold-and-pop main emoji of the conversation is reduced to a pathetic regular sized emoji, the photo quality has somehow gone even more downhill (unbelievable), the entire layout of the app and gallery is akin to a five year old’s general idea of what a crossword puzzle should look like. Don’t even get me started on what happened to the entire photo and video taking feature, because I don’t think you’re ready for it. Actually, you are - one-sized brushes, no cool camera settings, one available font, terrible “minimalistic” vibe of it all. How come someone decides stripping Messenger off it’s most valuable features is a great idea and should be called an “improvement”? The 2016 version that crashed every time you breathed in it’s direction seemed more reliable and well equipped. Using the app is a nightmare. Please, let me wake up from it.
