Reply to messages directly

Great app which i have been using for years. But please introduce replies like whatsapp, where you can swipe right on a message to quote and reply directly to it. will help significantly in group chats and long messages received when away.

update - please fix the messenger camera as something doesn’t seem right with it, it throws u back to default camera

The most stupid messager with false “active status”

If a lot of people lot of sent you unread message, your status becomes active. This but is been here since day one of this “most stupid messenger status. My wife always wake me up at night when I’m sleeping tight and when a lot of people sent message and never even read it. She always quarrel when it happened. Imagine how many night of quarrel plus long distance call which is very expensive. Wake up developer if this “most stupid status of this facebook messenger”. QUAKE UP! my wife believes you stupid status “active” but I’m not active. I’m also a developer since 1988. I can’t believe you can’t resolve this issue since you started to develop this messenger. So long time ago. If there’s a ‘0’ star, I should give you ‘0’ because that’s what you deserve. How many more night? Tic tac tic tac.... whatsapp is the best, no wonder it cost billions of dollars....

I just got the series 3 Apple Watch. All of my apps work fine except Facebook messenger. It acts like it is loading and has little dots flashing in a circle. I have updated the OS on the watch and phone. Updated the app on phone. Removed it from phone and watch and added back. And also done the trick where you add your own auto replies in the settings and then delete them. I was really looking forward to having this app because it’s one of the apps I use all day. Any help??
