The app is great and all, the only problem is this bug that prevents me from accessing all of my recent messages; whether it’s from a direct message to a friend or a group chat. All of these contacts and group chats seem to have disappeared and will always prompt me to “wave” the particular person or create a new message. Whenever I open a contact whom I have sent message before, the messages will not load and would always show the error “Couldn’t load messages.” Any further messages will end up not getting sent despite showing that it was succesful in sending the message. Furthermore, any attempts to access any form of chat either through Facebook, Messenger and its website counterparts will always fail and continue to show the bug. Please fix this bug as soon as possible so we may be able to contact our friends and family using this app.

No voice on video call

My messenger is messed up again, it has been corrected when I wrote you before. But after i have updated it the previous problem happened again. Whenever i make video call i have to use my headset for the person on the other end to hear me. What’s happening to my messenger? I’ve uninstalled it and installed it numerous times again after the update, but still during video call the other party can’t hear me. There has been previous updates, but still, I can’t be heard by the person I’m calling during video calls. Please help! I’ve just updated the messenger hoping that it will correct the no audio during video but still, no audio to the other party. I can hear them but they can’t hear me. Please do something about this.
This is getting serious. At first there wasn’t any sound during video calls. Now there isn’t any sound on video that is sent thru messenger.
Calls using Viber and FaceTime is perfectly fine. What’s wrong with messenger????? I’ve uninstalled and installed it so many times! I’ve updated it every time there is an update, but instead of it getting better it’s getting worst. Please do something please

broken app

i love how easy it is to use this app and it makes contacting your loved once just as simple as a click away but there are a few things i’m having problems with and some of these i believe are caused by bugs. firstly, the “active” feature doesn’t work on my account even if i try logging into other devices, people who i’m pretty sure are active and talking to me at the moment don’t show up as “active” but instead shows up as “active 1 min ago” and when someone messages you, you automatically become “active” for example, you’re asleep but you receive a message from somebody, that person will think you’re active because messenger marks you as “active” even if you are nowhere near your device. secondly, in the middle of calls i’m having, messenger suddenly ends it even if my wi-fi connection is working just fine and so is the person on the other line’s connection. thirdly, this has been happening to me most of the time and my friends as well, the ellipsis that shows that the person is typing is usually just a glitch. it shows that the person is typing when they’re actually not which makes the receiver unhappy because they think that they’re going to be receiving a message when it turns out to be false. lastly, the chat streak feature suddenly disappeared even though you messaged that certain person within the 24-hour period. i hope you could address these problems as soon as possible because many of us users are having trouble with these issues.
