Annoyed

Billyjoeee

I use messenger regularly to keep in contact with people, especially since my phone doesn’t have service at my work and I have to rely on WiFi. I enjoy using it, for the most part it’s not that difficult. And I don’t have very many issues and can’t complain much. But I’m really annoyed because when I type in keywords on the search bar it only goes back as far as 2016. I wanted to see mine and my boyfriends first messages and I couldn’t do it on my phone, I had to pull out my broken laptop and google in until I found a link that you had to change the micro seconds(I believe this was the term), which means I had to figure out what the micro seconds were around the time we talked which involves going to another web page to find out, and it really wasn’t that easy and didn’t work the first few times. It’s really aggravating that I couldn’t just search it on the app and it function the way it’s supposed to. I know this isn’t a major thing, but some people need to see messages from a long time ago for important reasons. Making me do extra work because your system isn’t operating correctly isn’t really what I want to be doing in my free time , I almost feel like you should be paying me for figuring it out. I know it’s only a minor thing but it really should be fixed because that means anytime I or someone else runs into this issue they have to resort to pulling out there laptop or desktop and going the extra mile just to see a few messages.

This is great, but....

Look, people need privacy. If I want to check my messages without people knowing I’m online doing so... I should be able to. I love this app because I can talk to everyone and sometimes even see who is online, but sometimes you don’t want people to know you are on. Let’s say you were specifically checking messages from one person and get bombarded with messages from others in your contact list. Yes, I very much intend to answer them all and delayed gratification is a learned thing that we should all have, but if you only have a second to check one message or are just downright tired and not able to have full out conversations with friends it would be nice to have an option to sign in incognito or only turn on your availability when you are legitimately available for long conversations. I don’t want to feel as though I need to check my phone every time it dings. Yes, I understand I can turn off notifications, but the app hates this and bugs the crap out of you until you do turn them on.
Please fix this. I honestly love the capability of being able to talk to all the people I love, but I hate the pressure of constant communication. It is stressful and unhealthy for all to feel as though you need to be in constant contact with hundreds of thousands of people. I’m currently deleting and re-downloading the app just to deal with this issue.

THINGS NEEDED TO BE FIXED/ADDED

•If there's anything that you could do, even just one thing, is this-FIX THE VOLUME PROBLEM. I'm tired of not being able to adjust my volume during a video call. Sometimes it's too loud, even when I try to adjust the volume down, it says it's at the minimum but the loudness doesn't change. Sometimes it's too quiet, so I try to turn it up and when I push the up button for the volume, it shows like I'm turning it up, but nothing actually happens to the loudness. This is really annoying me. Fix it ASAP please.
•Another thing with volume-I'm not sure if this is something you can fix or only Apple can fix, but whenever I video call someone, the volume of everything else gets lowered WAY down. I can't watch any videos that my boyfriend tags me in while we're calling because I can barely even hear anything, and that's only when I'm wearing headphones. It's much worse without them. I'm not sure if you can do anything about this, but I hope you can.
•Something you could consider adding is multiple notification sounds, PLEASE?? I hate when I hear the messenger sound and it ends up being someone else's phone. Maybe a bit more customization too? Like adding a picture to a chat background, or at least setting out some for us to choose from. Or maybe more chat colors would be nice. Things of that nature.

I hope you guys see this!!
