Constantly have "waiting on network" issues despite strong WIFI connection. Several delay problems. Also, really needs an option to turn off all video calls. I literally don't want people to even have the option of video calling me. I tell them all the time, DO NOT VIDEO CALL and they do it anyway and they aren't people I can just block. Also now suddenly it won't go into landscape mode. Just keeps getting more and more broken.

When it works, it's fine. BUT half the time I get multiple chat bubbles opening for the same chat, whole chunks of messages just disappearing and reappearing minutes later, notifications not bringing up chat bubbles at all, and over the last few months a pop up that says "messenger isn't optimized for the latest version of Android and the touch screen may be delayed". This last one occurs randomly even w/ no chats open and invariably I have to restart my entire phone just to use anything.

The application is highly effective in delivering messages and pictures. However, when receiving messages, there is a delay when you are not on the app itself. Recently, it has become so severe that notifications are sent out for messages that have already been read and responded to, which sends out the entire chat history, making it quite bothersome. Highly recommend your team to fix that issue with UI 6 versions.

Been using FB since it came out. But the past several months or so I've been having terrible bugs on my s23 ultra. Often it crashes or doesn't load conversations. And what's really annoying is that after I send a message, about 1% of the time it shows sent and then the message vanishes completely as if I never sent it and the receiver gets nothing either. It's happened at least a few dozen times the past few months 😞 So until the reliability is fixed, I'll have to use a different app.

Issues with when my data works for everything else just fine, it doesn't send or receive messages, even when I've verified it doesn't have any update needed. And my phone doesn't need a system update, nor do any of my apps. So this is a bug issue with the app itself. Hell it even does it on wifi with no other apps having issues & getting fast speeds on wifi tests.

It looks nice, but it's a bit complicated honestly. I'd rather have the simplicity of messenger lite, but it's been discontinued. This app takes up way too much space for messaging. Also it rarely notifies me when a message comes in, I end up missing them by hours. Update: phonecalls don't start ringing until the literal last second when someone hangs up and I miss them. Had to test this out myself with someone else's phone. Fix your app Facebook
