Ratings and Reviews
This App is horrible.
As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device.
All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.
Facebook Pay took my money for 10 days
Regular messenger user here, have used Facebook to pay friends a few times. The most recent time, I sent nearly $100 to my friend. I hit “send” and logged out of messenger— only hit 1 button and that’s it! Next time I log in I see that because my friend had also requested the money after I sent it, another near $100 was removed from my account. The second sum was taken WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION. I never hit “send” I was not even logged in to see the request come through.
What’s better, my friend never received the second $100, and I (after 7 days now) still have not gotten it back. I reached out to Facebook after 5days because their “help” section suggests waiting 3-5 days for bank transactions (keep in mind that this money should’ve never come out in the first place, now I’m waiting to get it back) and they get back right away with a very unhelpful automated response. After another message I was informed that it could take up to 10 days to get back this money. This is preposterous for a mistake that the platform made, I will never be using Facebook to handle my money again and would highly recommended VENMO to anyone looking to transfer money.
Can’t even send a message on the main app
Ok so I have good WiFi at my home, right? Plus I have Data so it shouldn’t be a problem, but whenever I use the app, it disconnects and reconnects LITERALLY EVERY SECOND. This prevents me from sending messages or anything! Also there has to be at least 4 people for a group chat including yourself or else it isn’t allowed? What kind of rule is that! So it works perfectly when I use the website, but I can’t join group calls or anything. It’s like a mix of Facebook and Messenger but it shouldn’t be because it’s a site for messenger! So the only thing that that is useful for is texting people. Also, when I use messenger it makes me use another account for some reason which is REALLY annoying, and I can’t log that account out. Oh and that brings me to another problem. I can’t log out of messenger!!!! There is no option to delete your account from messenger or anything like that! I was trying to today, and it said that that isn’t an option! Well anyway, this app has just been a pain for me and I plan on deleting it. Aside from all that, Thank you for taking the time to read my review, and have a good day!!!
