Video length is too short
I have friends that talk through videos when I’m not available, instead of audio only or typing. And I will get 10-20+ videos at a time from one person. Please upgrade the app to make videos 3 minutes max, instead of 20 seconds. It would make things so much better. I know I’m just one person. But maybe look at your data to see how many people use the video message function and if they are sending multiple at a time as well. Please and thank you. Edit. Also, maybe add a highlight to videos already viewed by me on my side. If I start watching them and that friend texts or sends a new video, the entire conversation jumps to the bottom and I lose my place. And trying to figure out where I left off in 20+ 20 second videos is a hassle; 40+ today(all at once). Like a yellow outline around the seen videos and blue around the ones I haven’t viewed yet. Something like that, that’s colorblind friendly lol. No purples and blues or greens and reds together, cuz they will blend and I and others like me wont be able to tell which is which 😂. Thank you
on apple this application is along with Facebook by far the worst by seeing this I mean disregard to privacy disregard to other app developers and disregard to the privacy of minors and elders also mimics apples facetime and uses this advantage to exploit theses individuals in advertisements on marketplace and so on also tagging with cookies and identifiers that are not controllable thru any means as to be used for the purposes of watching network traffic and as to make sure html 5 is unavailable to tagged users so they will not see the content also labeling them as developers and remotely conecting and using facebook or messanger widgets to disquise a webpage link claiming to be an app as to be able to abruptly delete content in a pinch and also using the appstore to abuse and take advantage of other applications to change operating system behaviors and functions to help them achieve this abuse in my case specifically saying im a developer wich i am not and also involving half developed apps and the family program this is not right for anyone but specifically not for the victims of just being a contact of others im in hopes that someone can help with this its my fault that i married the wrong person but it's not the fault of others i am aqunted to that should be exploited because of this exspecially children and elders
Overwhelming and extremely difficult to navigate
With school being online, I have been using messenger as my main medium of communication among the peers. The more I use it, the more I get annoyed at how poorly the app is made. When I have a few messages unread, it would make sense to guide me to the place where I left off when I open the chat. However, I have to scroll ALL the way up to figure out where in the conversation I had left from, so it is especially difficult when I am in a group chat and missed more than a dozen messages. It is also impossible to find the date and the time of each messages, which makes it take an even more time and effort from my end to go through every message to get to where I left off. This should be a basic function in all messenger programs by now, so I don’t understand why messenger wouldn’t carry such an essential function. It is not user-friendly, as the updates have been only adding stuff that no one would ever make use of while ignoring the basic necessities. I also can’t save or mark any messages if I need to go back to them. I truly hope you guys make the important updates soon.
