What a bunch of scammers

Lol i have to keep writing honest bad reviews for this god awful of an app because the developers think its smart to release an update every three days that doesnt fix any of the actual problems within the app, like not being able to send voice memos ow because facebook messenger glitched out that option, and the really annoying notification in my facebook app which is completley seperate yet when i click the notification in the real facebook app it takes me to messenger to check the notifications, and yet there is no real notifications, its just a constant notification , ive deleted and reinstalled the app plenty of times, im done with facebook for now, they have literally released an update for this piece of garabage every couple days and dont fix any of the actual problems, yet somehow theres always more data to install? There is no support for facebook as ive reached out plenty of times and if they cant fix the issue you will just get ignored because theyd rather take money than fix anything and somehow they stay at the top of the social app list simply because they make everyone update it every couple days, facebook is a sham now, i have to keep coming back to update my reviews literally after every update which has been every other day, and yet still no word from facebook or apple as to why i cant send important voicememos

Voice recording

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!

Please fix...

Well did an update on Tuesday, & it hasn’t worked the same since, every time I want to send a picture or attachment it crashes, & closes itself out!! Can’t you peeps use things yourself, see if they work before putting the updates out there?? Whole iPhone has greatly slowed down since last update! 😳😤. Of course we all know why!!?? 😡. This update, removed the “blow up” emoticons that get bigger while holding them down, seeing wether or not others had read your post without having to actually open it. The slide to type no longer works, some of my games won’t work, can’t get to all of my stickers they just vanished, but are on my iPhone. I don’t want a business type app, this was meant originally to allow people to connect without the hassle, no ads or junk, now we have everything (all junk) Put all the extras on an app by itself, name it something different, and put this the way it was. I think you have trashed the things I liked about the app, and kept the junk. I guess I’ll find another message app. If I would have thought I should have read the reviews first this time, and just not upgraded, because it didn’t upgrade, it downgraded.
I hope you read this. As I’m gonna see how right my review is, by reading everyone else’s!
