Get rid of stories & bday messages. Bring back old layout

This app has turned for the worse since the stories feature was added and layout was majorly changed. It is clearly NOT wanted or needed by any of the users. Messenger was intended to be a messaging app to message people you are friends with on facebook. Snapchat is for stories. Directly COPYING snapchat (which is not original at all and very lame) does NOT make the app more popular, it only irritates and frustrates users who ONLY want to use it for it's original intended purpose!!. NOBODY wanted messenger in the first place, it was forced upon everyone to get it when fb removed the original mesaage format which was STUPID. So please stop making this app WORSE AND WORSE EVERY SINGLE UPDATE and not even listing changes in the update info. REMOVE the stupid 'send a birthday message' feature that appears in users conversations as a message!! It's so annoying and unwanted, not needed. Learn some common sense, get some logic and fix your mess. You have a major 1 star rating at the moment, clearly your users are CLEARLY NOT SATISFIED. Bring back the original layout that was SIMPLE and not ridiculously confusing. Stop insisting notifications are turned on!!! Read your reviews and take in the criticism and stop making everyone lose brain cells every time they see how stupid the new features are.

Terrible app now. Makes me not want to use it. A lot of 1 star reviews, listen to your users.

What have you done with the UI? It's awful. With the curved corners at the top, the stupid rectangles you can't get rid of and the giant camera button down the buttom, it's completely horrible. And it
looks horrible when you see it on the multitask screen. UGLY AS HELL.

I didn't think it was possible to screw up the UI even more, but congratulations Facebook, you've done it. With "Shared Days" right in the way of my conversations, I hate using it and try my best not to.

If I wanted to Snapchat, I'd use Snapchat. Nobody likes a pretender. I hope your attempt at being Snapchat backfires on you.

Get rid of it, we want the messaging app back. BECAUSE THAT'S WHY WE DOWNLOADED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. Start by firing the morons who said "Making Messenger like Snapchat is a great idea"

The unique alert sound no longer works and hasn't for some time. Wish I could go back to a previous version. If they can't even get that right, then there's no hope for this app. I'd give a negative rating if I could. Edit: So you fixed the sound, good. Now fix the app so it's not Snapchat.


This app is not Snapchat. Stop pretending to be. Nobody uses the stories feature. The layout of the messages is terrible. I want to see them in chronological order regardless of if I have opened them or not. I also do no care about rooms, or favourites, or even people who are online. I want to see my messages, nothing else. Also a lot of the time my messages come up completely blank. So it is impossible to read through old messages (or sometimes even new ones). I have deleted and re-downloaded the app so many times and I still always end up having this issue. Honestly if there was an alternative I wouldn't use messenger.
