  • Notification

    By angeljr13 (Pcmac user)

    I love this app! Ive been a loyal, true fan. I have had the app for years, it marked my a chapter in my life and kept me connected to my family during my time in the military and the app videocall is even better than facetime, until today. Ive never felt such a rollercoaster of emotions towards an app. I cannot believe that still to this day, November 11th 2019. the app does not allow me to set other ringtones for my messages! I tried choosing in the list but i started having so many flashbacks to 2012 that i just cousnt bring myself to pick one. I am dissapointed and do not feel valued as a supporter. Ive tried other messaging apps but nothing compares to the Crispiness of those voice messages or the mind-boggling speed of the messages. At the end of that terrible weekend i succumbed to my anger and downloaded the app again. Out of the painful list of ringtones i had to conform with “popcorn”. It has the least terrible sound but it sadly reminds me of a dear exgirlfriend that broke because i was “too dramatic”. You guys should add more options.
  • Complaining

    By dieguito_27 (Pcmac user)

    Ok so I generally love the app. But with the new update came something peculiar about the voice message. Now you can keep listening to the voice even if you turned off the phone or switched to another app, but the catch is that if you’re listening to music and you start to listen to a voice the music doesn’t start automatically after you’re done listening to the voice. Now you have to enter the music app and press play so you can keep listening to the song. I don’t really like that. Another thing I don’t like is that if you take out the read receipts you can’t see if someone saw your status. And that’s really frustrating because you took out the read receipts so no one in the CHATS could see if you saw their text. Not for the status. I would really appreciate it if you took out those two things. Please and thank you!
  • A little annoying...

    By Jaquelyn😛 (Pcmac user)

    Hello so this is the second time I’ve had issues with the app. My first issue got taken care of (me being on a video call with my significant other and after hanging up realizing I had a miss call from an unknown number and also that person being on a group chat with my significant other and I which was weird because I didn’t have that persons number but was one of my significant other’s contacts and I got a hold of the person and she said she never called me and didn’t even have my number lol) MY ISSUE NOW is that my call history is a little off... I mean if I receive a call or call let’s say Alberto Monday and then call him again Tuesday, the conversations get combined even if they are from a different day!!! THIS happens when I don’t have another call before I get in contact with Alberto again.. Please fix this I want to be able to see exactly on what days I got a hold of someone and ALSO I sometimes don’t receive notifications until I open the app Thank you
  • Camera takes fuzzy photos every time

    By kylehotchkiss (Pcmac user)

    the app in general is fine. But every photo I take in the app is fuzzy; and more zoomed in than my normal photos app. It’s like they are putting camera in video mode and taking a screenshot. I guess this is part of their cross platform library but still, I wish it would let the camera app use more native and high quality functionality. Additionally, it’s wayyy too easy to send things to the wrong person. You can’t remove people from “recently contacted” or “frequently contacted” prompts around iOS for sharing. I’m terrified I will send my girlfriends brother something immodest because his name shows above hers even though our chat volumes are way different. the app is a globally loved tool but has some pretty strange UX issues given its financial backer and experienced staff. I will continue to use it as most of the world doesn’t have iMessage; but if they did; I don’t think I’d miss the the app app that much.
