Look, i know its early so its probably full of bugs, but the app can only be open for about 4 minutes before an error message appears (cannot connect to network, app will restart) and it does. So if you forget about the app and go to a different screen it will restart and pop back up over whatever you're doing. Also, if you're a fan of facebook marketplace, theres no marketplace area for messaging people on it.
Note: i was on a personal hotspot on my phone where i never have connection issues ever, so that might be the issue with the application. Otherwise it all looks great, even has a dark theme.
Developer Response ,
Hi Thisguyneil, thank you so much for trying the app today and for your feedback. We're so sorry about this 🙈 and what you're seeing is not what we're aiming for! Ouch. What you're seeing is an issue syncing your messages with Facebook servers, and the restarts are the app trying very hard to fix that for you automatically. Would you be willing to reinstall the app and see if that clears things up? Hope we can make it right for you and happy you're enjoying the other features. Thank you again from the team in Seattle 🙏
Released too soon
Look, Im glad they finally got on this, but some of the most basic functions are not working. Lots of bugs etc. I get a pic or video from somebody in the iOS app, its nothing to share with others in my list. On this MacOS app, I cant share it, I cant drag it to another contact to send to them, and if I right click and say save to downloads... that doesnt do anything at all either. This is like IM 101 stuff here that most do every day. Hey I got a funny pictrue let me share it with others.... oh wait, I literally have zero capability to do that by any mechanism at all in this app. Its easy peasy in the iOS app.
Extra work needed
The space for stickers/Gif is too large, it's taking up to half the chat's screen.
The amount of effort needed to send a picture is too much. You have to tap the "plus" icon, then select the picture option, only after that you'll be able to select the picture you want to send.
Another pain is to download an attachment. Why wouldn't there be the option to download right next to the file name? Why do I need to preview the file before moving my cursor to the top of the window to select "download"?
