Messenger Pros

Too Easy to Accidentally Delete MessagesHave always enjoyed using the messenger app, however, I find it easy to accidentally delete messages when I meant to hide them. When you hide a message, a banner appears and asks you if you are sure you want to hide the message. Yet, when you delete a message, no banner appears to check you are sure you want to delete a message. This is really frustrating because you can easily delete something. The developers really need to take this into consideration as this must happen often. Thanks..AowhaidbjsVersion: 245.1

Great customer care and honestI went to the shop today at 1.15ish . I got some money from post office and did some shopping! Service is always great very pleasant to customers. Anyways today a card has fell out my wallet and the owner came chasing after me to give me the card as next customer found I believe good old lynn 😀 told them it was mine .

Messenger Cons

Can’t log in!I’ve been trying to log into both the Facebook app and the messenger app but it keeps coming up with “An unexpected error occurred. Please try logging in again”. Tried logging in again, didn’t work! I’ve reset all settings on my phone, deleted and re downloaded the apps, went on my laptop and went into all settings on Facebook to adjust things, went into all settings on my phone to adjust anything, went into the Facebook help centre which was very unhelpful as I know my password, have tried resetting my password and there is no way I can contact Facebook directly! It seems to be just the apps on my phone which is annoying cause I use messenger for work!.MummabearcmVersion: 288.0

Awful interface. Feels like I'm 5!I hate the new messenger app. It's enormous icons for each face make me feel like I'm an old person with large thumbs or I'm 5 years old and don't know how to work my phone. I would like to change the text size as it's so large I have to squint to make sense. The interface is so child like it's as is FB decided to employ 10 year olds for their market research. I can only see 3-4 different messages on the screen as it's so large! The games tab is gone also and I used messenger 50% of the time for this. I am not going to be spending my time on messenger now I'll us what's app. What I thought was a brilliant communication tool is dumbed down for large screen phones and people that have no idea how to navigate an app. This is disappointing as I really use messenger a lot. I don't care for ombre chats or fancy ads. Poor move messenger people. I'll be deleting this soon. See you on the other side.XbabybearxVersion: 192.0
