  • missed calls

  • Delete

    By thumper94
    I have what I thought would be an easy problem to fix!!! Apparently not so. My “delete” on messenger won’t delete a message. I can’t find any solution anywhere. I’ve used Apple support but they said it was with the app itself and I would need to go to the developer. There “help” is worthless. Any suggestions from anyone

    I updated this app a few updates back. I am a visually impaired user, who uses a Braille Display with this app on her Iphone. Well, a few updates ago, the app stopped showing me what I was writing, even with the VoiceOver feature on. This makes it even harder for me to know what I write. I can't sit there and think about what I will say next, because I can't read what I just wrote. I have to know exactly what I am going to say, and it can’t be long, either. This is annoying, and needs to be fixed. Believe me. You have plenty of visually impaired users who use this app as well. Stop thinking the only people who use apps are sighted "normal" people, because it's not. We use things too, and if things aren't accessible for us, we won' use the app, which will drop user statistics a lot. Just saying. Try to think of us too, please. It would be appreciated. A lot.
  • Deleting messages

    By Spenmeg
    I don’t like how you have to delete one message at a time. 😒
  • No reason for this app to exist

    By Stygimoloch
    This used to be part of facebook. The only reason they split it off is to have a second app in top 10 lists.
  • Won’t ever load

    By Scootyboiii
    I just can’t use this app simply because 99% if the time it won’t load any of my messages to reply to anyone
