Awesome but could change

So I have this app and it’s AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Me and my friends love to chat with each other and have video calls especially during Covid 19 but there could be a few adjustments: the main reason I gave this app a four star review is because when it’s past eight o’clock or something it says “the app went to sleep” which is so annoying because I can’t even text my dad! It says something about switching my account!!! Number two: sometimes when I’m doing my homework or just hanging out my iPad will just start getting ONE BILLION texts and calls and it’s so annoying I wish there was some kind of decline button or like a disable button because people will just spam me all day long and they’ll call me and hang up and call me and hang up and it’s soooooo annoying!!! Number three: it’s cool in all how you can decorate you app and stuff but it would be nice if you could make it a bit more detailed because being able to color your app and switch your picture whenever you want is making your app unique and I love that but if you could make it a bit more detailed that would be awesome. Thanks for reading my review and it would be helpful if you could change at least one thing about the app in my review.

I love this! Except I have a request...

I love messenger! So much! It’s so amazing. I love talking with my friends. It’s one of the most amazing messengers I have ever seen in my whole life. But I do have a couple requests. I have always wanted to see a shop! That you don’t buy things with real money with, but with points. I want to play games, and get points. Lets say I’m playing a game, I get points, but I cant do anything with them! It’s kind of boring in my opinion. How about for single player games, you get a normal amount of points, but multiplier you get double the points! Then we can go to that shop, and spend points on filters, stickers, other games, and more! That would be SOOOOOO Amazing! Ok, now for the second request. (It’s also about games XD I’m a gamer type.) could you please add more games for single player? And possible a couple more for multi? Mainly single, though. Because lets say I want to play a game with my friend, and they are offline. And I have played every single single player game. What do I do? Sit around and wait for them to come online again? Maybe you could fix that? Thank you so much. Ok, and ONE LAST REQUEST! The Kaju Crush game looks so amazing. But how do you play it? I tap every button but nothing works. I cant send a move to my friend or anything. Maybe you could add tutorials for your games? Thanks so much Messenger! Bye!

Great app but a few suggestions

So I’m a kid and I use this app and I like to talk to my friends and play the bunny bridge game a lot but there’s an issue with it that makes me frustrated. The issue is this: in the tutorial it shows you the exact pieces you need and the bunny doesn’t start moving until all the pieces have been placed. When you start the real game, it doesn’t give you all the right pieces and the bunny doesn’t wait until you’ve completed a path. It starts moving after 2 pieces have been placed. I get that it’s a puzzle thing, but the bunny moves really fast and on the first level I played today, I tried placing a piece but it didn’t work, so that’s really frustrating. If you could maybe wait until the path is about halfway completed and if you could set out some more actually useful pieces, that’d be awesome. Also, I was thinking about this recently, last year I did this thing called “let’s look for cool filters” but when I watched the video at the end, I couldn’t hear what I said with most of the filters activated. I don’t know if this is still a problem, but anyways, there’s one more thing I wanted to discuss. There was this ADORABLE shark filter and I named him Leonard (pronounced Len-ird) and I haven’t seen him since! Please please please please PLEASE BRING LEONARD BACK Thank you,
A kid who uses this app
