Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Regarding the voice recording option...I have noticed for a while, specifically after an update I was forced to make, that I cannot scroll the window while recording, otherwise all that I've recorded dissapears, and I have to start over again. My question is...why can't you follow the same pattern whatsApp has and actually keep the recording option visible and available while scrolling up and down, without any issues? And also, when and if I lock the screen, the recording should be paused and not lost, again, something that on whatsApp you've managed to make it work, but not for Facebook Messenger. It's very frustrating and primitive, as I'm wasting a lot of time trying to deliver a vocal message. Another important lack of utility is the absence of a cursor while listening to a voice recording, as I'm not able to move back or forward the message, so If I need to listen again a certain part of it, I can't, but instead I have to start from the beginning and wait until I get to that part again.
And why am I not notified when the recording is over? I could keep talking and have no ideea it's not recording anymore. So, my review for your latest updates would be ZERO, if I could select this kind of rate. You are not improving the application, you are making it worse!
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?
The Fall of Facebook Messenger
When I was younger, I was introduced to Facebook Messenger by a friend. I am still rather young, and Facebook isn’t a commonly used social media amongst people of my age. Facebook Messenger, however, rapidly proved itself to be the greatest messaging app I had ever used. Everything from the themes, to polls, to games, to the overall feel of the app made it the go-to choice for both private messaging and group chats. Every update seemed to make it better. That is, until a few months ago, when a big update hit Messenger. Games were removed, along with polls, the ability to inflate the chat emoji, and the usability of the app. This app has become unusable. After only minutes of use, sending and receiving messages slows to a crawl. It is near impossible to have a proper conversation as messages take multiple minutes to send. Facebook doesn’t seem to care. With each update, I pray that Messenger returns back to its original state, its former glory. Until that day comes, I have no choice but to use other, inferior messaging services when I do not have access to a computer. I’m sad. I’m sad that the once great Messenger has fallen so far from what it used to be. Please, Zucky, please tell the Messenger team that they must fix their app. I beg of you.
