I have a suggestion

This is a pretty good app in my opinion! I use it 24/7 to talk to my friends. I use it more than my phone’s built in texting app. I love that you’re able to video chat with people, see if they’re active, and you can personalize the chat a little bit. The biggest complaint I have though is that you can’t delete images from the photos and videos section of the chat’s settings. You can only delete those things from the actual conversation. This is bothersome to me because I talk a lot to my friends and if I want to go back and delete some old images, I’m unable to because they’re too far up in older conversations. I also can’t search my conversations anymore because it always bugs out. It won’t load the conversations and then after that, the app won’t work at all. If you could take these things into consideration, especially the deleting suggestion, then I would very much appreciate it! Otherwise though, this is my #1 messaging app!

Voice recording

Regarding the voice recording option...I have noticed for a while, specifically after an update I was forced to make, that I cannot scroll the window while recording, otherwise all that I've recorded dissapears, and I have to start over again. My question is...why can't you follow the same pattern whatsApp has and actually keep the recording option visible and available while scrolling up and down, without any issues? And also, when and if I lock the screen, the recording should be paused and not lost, again, something that on whatsApp you've managed to make it work, but not for Facebook Messenger. It's very frustrating and primitive, as I'm wasting a lot of time trying to deliver a vocal message. Another important lack of utility is the absence of a cursor while listening to a voice recording, as I'm not able to move back or forward the message, so If I need to listen again a certain part of it, I can't, but instead I have to start from the beginning and wait until I get to that part again.
And why am I not notified when the recording is over? I could keep talking and have no ideea it's not recording anymore. So, my review for your latest updates would be ZERO, if I could select this kind of rate. You are not improving the application, you are making it worse!

#1: when I’m typing a reply to one of my friends and someone messages me simultaneously, it closes me out of the conversation and erases all of what I had written and just brings me back to my inbox and it’s really frustrating because it happens every single time and always seems to happen when I’m typing long messages and then I have to start all over. PLEASE FIX ASAP!! Cause I just wanna use a different app to talk to my friends now but would prefer not to! This has been a thing for 2-3 weeks now and hasn’t changed even though I update it every time I get the chance to. Just downloaded the update for today so I’ll see if that makes any difference, but I highly doubt it because the update didn’t list anything about bug fixes.

#2: this glitch just stared happening yesterday (June 1st, 2020) where I haven’t been getting notifications for new messages. I made sure to check my notifications were on in my settings, which they were, but my friend sent me a message at 9am and didn’t get it until 2:50pm. So please fix, again, this is very frustrating and I don’t want people to get mad at me and think that I’m ignoring them when I’m not. I hope you read this and can do something about it, please and thank you.
