Update broke app

I just updated the app and now in the chats section only thing there are adds and I don't mean a few adds they keep loading and won't stop I can't use the app cause adds keep loading in the chat section I hope there is an update to fix this or I may have to delete this app.

Update malfunction

The app turns my music app off when i open it. It didn't do this prior to the update. Confused as to why that would even be required to turn the music off.


I'm always listening to music but now when I open the app my music cuts off. Help out a music lover.
