Ideas And Fixes

This app is truly amazing! Every-time I meet a new friend or a new person, I ask them for their messenger, but not all of them have it. I use it to talk to my friends, hangout with them, and mostly have fun. The only things I don’t like about this app is that sometimes for every 10 seconds I get on in a call, it closes the call. It is fixed! But i wanted to clarify that just incase any body else is having trouble with that same reason. The filters have changed, and some were deleted which I am not happy about, Including the games. The whole games section has been deleted on Apple devices or so, but I used to love them. This is one of the best apps I’ve used for texting, messaging, and calling, but if there is any fixes, please tell me! Also, whenever I try texting somebody, it never sends. It is also fixed now, (for my device) but some people still have these problems. And I also know that it is connected to instagram, and Facebook. But it doesn’t change profile pictures except after 10 minutes for people which gets me confused and I Sometimes send random things to the ring friends, family, or person. Anyway, this app is mostly good. But it still needs fixing. But overall, I think this deserves a good amount of support!

Thank you!

useful for those who don’t have a phone no.

communication with this app is almost just like texting someone, with several differences & one of them is you can see who isn’t or is online at the time of chatting with them… as far as using Facebook or Messenger goes (some people choose to turn off their Active Status) this only applies to people that are friends with each other on FB. another fact about Messenger, that is non-similar to text messages, is you can archive messages sent to you from anyone, which if your familiar with archiving stories on Facebook, the concept is almost the same. the only other unique difference i can think of is the ability to edit chat thread backgrounds (tap on that person‘s profile picture, choose Theme as the 1st choice under Customization, pick one of the many options available or go to the bottom Colors and Gradients section to decide on your favorite to set for that certain chat between you & him/her/they) those are the only reasons why I think Messenger is a decent app to use for purposes related to reaching out to anyone with a FB account.

App going downhill fast.

Ever since the last update the calls have been messing up bad when I try to call someone it says I’m calling myself and keeps ringing and ringing for so long I have to turn my phone off completely to get it to stop on top of that messenger it self as been messing up my data it will turn my data off out of nowhere or it won’t even recognize I have data on at all it just keeps saying “ no Internet connection” when I have full bars of LTE and even more on that note calls will randomly end or it will only end on me or said persons end but never showed on the other persons end and the whole time you think you’re on call you really not video length is way too short my friends can’t even send me videos without having to crop them into separate parts and same for me I keep getting kicked out of messenger almost on a daily basis nowadays and sometimes it keeps saying that my information is wrong when I never change my login information and don’t get me started on how many times it says “unable to login” over and over again on a daily basis and on top of the fact and stuff it has very bad security measures if you get hacked or so on. All the recent updates for a while On this app have just been making this app worse and worse and it has so many bugs and glitches it’s not even funny this app has gone to complete garbage.
