Why not Apple CarPlay like messages has

Hello how is everyone doing? I’m wondering why messenger isn’t up to date with everyone else. I’m sure others have the same thoughts, A lot of individuals use this service to call and message others along with maps people send others when they are trying to meet and for products and merchandise just for an example. Why can we not have this app sync with our vehicles like the phone and messages app that Apple have in place. This would be a very nice update to an increasingly popular app. Not only that, but it would make us, yes even yourselves safer on the road. After all isn’t that what we all strive for, I know your users strive for this on a daily basis. Please if you would, look into this. I for one drive a very huge truck 2016 F350 dually FX 4 lifted & oversized tires for work purposes. I am a safety officer so I especially know safety is of the utmost concern no matter what we do as a society. I for one love my Sync3 system and would love to be able to use it to keep us all a little safer.

New Update is Trash, Useless (iOS)

The new update is absolutely disgusting. It makes this app not only visibly unappealing, but the new UI is hard to use, foolhardy, and removes many useful features. I also keep having problems with crashing. The new online/offline status is buggy and gets stuck. Phone calls are buggy too and stopped displaying properly. Messages can no longer be easily copied, deleted or forwarded. The old menu was easier. I preferred the swipe reply feature. Messages are no longer easy to reply to in notifications either. Pictures are not easy to send.
I used to like this app because of the little unique things like the old cute reactions, chat colors, and balloons and hearts that you could catch. Now, they are all gone. I used to love using stickers, but the system is all messed up now as your most recent stickers and the packs are harder to find. I do not like the excess spacing between packs either. I am not exaggerating to say that I hate this new update. I have recommended that people do not update if they still have an older version. Many of my friends have agreed with me and say that this new version glitchy, problematic, and ugly. I have stopped using it as much because it is useless now. What did you do to this app?

Messenger disappears

My messenger icon disappeared a while ago and I wasn’t able to access it. I was able to do it through Facebook though. Then I found the icon on my iPhone through Siri app suggestions. Well now I can’t access it at all. Not through Facebook and not through Siri app suggestions, which is the only place that had the icon I could access. When I do click on it it shows for less than a second and disappears. It does it through Facebook, when I click on that messenger icon, and even when I try to get Siri to access it. When I go onto the App Store, it does the same thing. I want to uninstall it to hopefully restart it. I have rebooted my phone and left it off all night hoping that would help, but it didn’t. The icon that shows in Siri app suggestions will not allow me to hold it down so I can delete it like any other app. I think it’s because it’s not the app itself, just showing the icon that allowed me to access thru it, but that was it.I don’t know if this is making any sense or if I’m even explaining it correctly. I would literally have to show somebody what’s going on. All I could say is I cannot access messenger in any way shape or form not even to delete it or anything and I don’t know what to do .
