Messenger Pros

Trying to write a long message😩When writing a message, the message bar I am typing in shrinks back? It has only just started doing this in the last couple of months. It’s so annoying! Even when I’m midway through editing my message it suddenly shrinks down to the first couple of words. The message is still there but I have to repeatedly click on the message I’m writing to bring it back up. I assumed this was an error with an update and it would be rectified with the next update but it hasn’t been! Messenger is my preferred message app but this needs sorting..Vics0179Version: 261.1

Crashing constantly!The current update of the app keeps crashing every time I try and message friends or even read messages. At first I thought it was just friend I was having a problem with but it happens with all my friends! Never had problems with the app in the past and my os is all up to date! Hopefully this bug can be squashed quickly because the app is super useful! Super annoying especially when trying to look at a link someone has sent me and it keeps crashing!.Beeeeex22Version: 157.0

Messenger Cons

Usually greatChat system is fine, but once in a while you don't get messages until a few days after they were sent... that's not fun....BOBnRobVersion: 146.0

Works pretty well but constant updates are too vagueI rarely have any issues with using the app, it even has some advantages over a web browser; in particular, you can create plans in the app but not in browsers. My only issue is that there is almost always an update in the App Store for messenger and the description is always the same vague one. It doesn't matter if the specific bug fixes and changes are listed somewhere online, it should be in the update description and users shouldn't have to switch between apps to find out what they're downloading. Considering how many people must be working on these updates, it comes off as really lazy or really shady that the same description is being copy pasted every time..HuychongweiVersion: 182.0
