Well, I'd love to use the messenger lite app since I never use most of the things included in the full messenger app. However, I use video chat more often than not so I simply cannot ditch the full version of the app in favor of lite... It would be incredible if users get to choose which features they want so that they can pick out whichever features they want on their device.
What i hate the most is that it tries to replace the main SMS app.....Is not a good SMS app.I dont see my SMS list...or names...too many times to type to find someone.And is annoying cause sometimes it replaces it automatically.
I use a very old version of messenger. Because Messenger is a sack of shit with useless features and takes up like 25% of my storage (Yes, I have an old phone) and even when I buy a new one, I'll use it on the new phone as well. Plus, new messenger emojis are retarded and moronic.
I don't care about data plan. I have unlimited Internet, but it just consumes so much RAM. That's what I hate about it. And messenger lite sucks too. I would rather have a PWA - Those things are awesome (when they work), like Twitter lite.
"right below that like button" and " and I'll catch you guys in the next one...peace" - a criticism I have for this video is the fact that you need to create your own video identity rather than copying MKBHD's 😂 other than that good video
Farzan Khoobchehr If you are android that is a option just not officially if you are on iOS and are on 11.2 I believe then you can jailbreak and I'm sure there is a dark mode app. Again if you have android I can give a good recommendation that can put dark mode on many apps without any serious modifications that would void your warranty.
I like the chat head thing. This is very useful and it does not distract from what I am doing while fully chatting with my friends. In What's up and other messengers you have to switch applications or answer from notification shade, but that is not the same.
I use the normal messenger app. I hate it, use it but I don't wanna use it. I dislike Facebook (the company) very much. But I have to keep using it for the time being because I have a girlfriend overseas who uses this one. Because we have a video call everyday, so I'm always using it. But I hate it.
Is there another 2018 great messenging app? One that does well with Video Calls/normal via net calls and voice messages? My gf and I have tried Line, Kik, Skype (but like 2 years back), Tango, but throughout the calls on these apps, there was too many problems so my gf kept wanting to return to Fb Messenger.
What's skype like today? The app any good or still can't keep up with Messenger?
Is there another alternative to Facebook Messenger? Please let me know. Thanks.
I have no Facebook messenger or Facebook app installed on any of my device. As a matter of fact I try to use less of Facebook unless I really want to update something say a status or a picture.
Facebook may be the biggest social media around but day by day it is becoming the worst.
Twitter, Instagram and snapchat and YouTube is the best.
Pr.incorporated I know right. But Instagram is in a way better than Facebook. Facebook is a mess.
Like say if asked to choose three services for the rest of my life I would choose Google, amazon and twitter.
I use Facebook messenger lite because I only have limited storage but mainly because the official app starts up all the time and drains so much battery but the lite version is way better at saving battery.
JUDVS I had a Galaxy S4, S6 and now own a OnePlus 3T. None of these have been bad by any means whatsoever. And yet Facebook and Messenger apps still suck. Why ?
Infact tried them on Lenovo P2 and Redmi Note 3 and they are still trash.
I guess there exists no good phone to actually run these apps.
I use lite and use chrome with push notifications going through it to get facebook notifications. The biggest annoyance is that Facebook lite doesn't have the correct tie ins to launch facebook messenger links allowing you to click message on someone's profile in the web browser and send a message to them in lite. This is because it doesn't have the link handlers set up. Wish they would fix that.
i use friendly app instead, facebook and messenger in 1 app, also has amoled background theme with customisable accents and no ads, thias also uses less storage, ram, and data and allows you to download videos.
