Ratings and Reviews
Needs some fine-tuning
They keep fixing bugs, which is great, but the Mac app needs more than that. For example, when restarting the computer, logins do not persist. This is a personal Mac, so I'd like it to stay logged in. Also, even when phone and Mac are on the same Wi-Fi, it doesn't always sync your whole chat history. If it syncs over our personal Wi-Fi, that's no stress on Tencent's servers. The Mac app is great though, in that it makes the different features easier to use and having sync to PC is great. Finally, I'm grateful that there's an easy solution to chat with Chinese people. It helps me to improve my Chinese and I love my friends.
Cannot send images when specified a color profile for screen
This bug bothered me a very long time, and recently I found the reason. When screen color profile is at default (Color LCD), everything works fine. But if there was another color profile had been specified to screen in system display settings, then no image can be sent out. I cannot find any other place to submit this bug to the developer, so I can only submit it here, hope the developer can see it and solve it ASAP.
Unstable and a lackluster experience
The mobile version is alright (a lot of features that make it stand out) but this feels like a step in the wrong direction. As another reviewer stated, scrolling back up through feeds, or old content causes the app to crash, but the worst problem has to do with messages failing to send (even those without attachments or links to external content). In short, the extra features seem cool, but the app is just buggy, and its core feature seems to be poorly implemented. If you're looking for a solid messaging app on desktop, look elsewhere; hopefully this improves, but for now, my experience has been pretty bad.
