I absolutely love the app, but…

I really love Facebook messenger don’t get me wrong. It is my primary form of communication through social media, but no matter how hard I try to not let it bug me that I can no longer see if my messages deliver, I can’t help it. It’s been over a year since Apple took the little circle away when you send a message until that person views it and it’s still nerve racking to me. Especially with the fact that on Androids and at least some Windows PC’s, it still allows you to have the circle. Occasionally my app will glitch and if someone else logs into their account on my phone it will allow them to have the circle.

Anyways, if there’s any chance that small problem could be solved, I would gladly give a full 5 star rating. But until that day comes, I’ll stick with a 4. Honestly if it would allow me to give a 4.5 rating I definitely would.

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.

Messenger keeps kicking me off

For the past three days messenger has literally been kicking me from the app nonstop. If I’m lucky I can get it to work enough for me to send maybe one message before it starts doing the same thing. I click the app to open it, it tries to open, then immediately shuts down. Over and over and over. And now when I do get into it, if it actually allows me to stay on the app, it no longer allows me access to my photos. I try to go to settings to allow access, but the app isn’t asking for permission in my settings. So I can’t even fix that. But I’m more concerned with the fact that I literally can’t get messenger to open unless I shut my phone off and on three or four times in a row. And when it does let me in, I know I have a limited amount of time before it does it again. It’s done this once before I few months back, and there was an update that fixed it and I had no more issues until recently. So I keep looking on here for an update, but haven’t seen one yet- so I’m curious if it’s just my phone specifically or if it’s the app itself. Either way it’s extremely irritating especially when it’s the main (and basically only) way that I communicate with people. And now I can’t even do that. It’s extremely frustrating to just continuously be kicked out of the app for no apparent reason. Please fix this..
