Problems about Messenger

I have been using messenger for two years now. Still it's great that you can text other people, play games, and also send stickers. You even get to FaceTime people with filters too! Though I have some problems with it recently. First of all, I really don't want to wave to other people. That really annoys me a lot. I mean, some people are busy doing stuff! I know, I know, that you want us to have a lovely chat and stuff. But can you PLEASE remove the waving thing?!? Second of all, the filters. I used to take pictures or do vines. But TODAY, That is April 14, I found out that the FILTERS WERE DELETED!!! Only the stickers were available! That made me really upset about it. Since I used it every time for my pictures and vines! I hope you can really BRING THEM BACK MESSENGER!!! It really was a bummer! Finally, when you play the games and you stop, there is a chat where you can talk to them! And this is ALSO BUGGING ME! No Offense, but can you make it stop! I know you worked hard on it, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DO THAT!!! Since then, I will be giving it a four star review since everything else is fine. I am also getting the urge to delete Messenger. So I hope you CAN FIX THIS!!

Thank you.

A User from Messenger.

This App is horrible.

As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device.
All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.

Sick, Sick, Sick

Once again I’m being forced to reinstall messenger??!! And you’ve added more surveillance features?! Someone else has already noted your B.S. notification policy (aka consumer manipulation and dominance strategy). Far as sending messages to people, yeah the app does that but so do the simplest message apps, and that’s your ONLY ONLY ONLY reason to exist as an app in the first place. Offer a simplified version, messages only, simple one time only turn off notifications option, and no video. That’s what a stand up company would do; but no, you’re NOT stand-up, are you? That’s not your way - you’re just sneaky, devious, and manipulative. There is no “convenience” to any of this, no “we’re just doing it to give you more options” about it. Ha ha ha, but the sick joke is on ME isn’t it? Eventually I’ll probably just reinstall the stupid thing and you know it. Your entire philosophy is about dominance if your consumers, isn’t it? What an ugly way to gain business, what a perverted way to treat your consumers. Eventually this is going to come back to bite you in the rear. Let’s see just how long it takes. I pity anyone who glurps and slurps down anything FB feeds them without complaint. The self-hatred you engender within me will one day soon drive me away.
