After November security update messages are received from bank account transaction or my office communications or one time passwords from bank or other apps. Even alarm app is not working... alarm set on time is not alarming and if I open clock app then I get notified for missed alarm. I have Nokia 6. Nokia please don't disappoint us ???? Full Review

Latest version is buggy! Messages sent to iPhone with certain screenshots show up as MP4 (single image, not slideshow). Images received are pixelated and low resolution (30KB). No way to change this horrible setting. Secondly, double SMS notifications!!! Full Review

I started to get two alerts for two new messages from two people when I reboot. But The messages are really old messages that were read long ago. The same alerts for the same two messages appear every time I reboot. Any idea of this can be fixed without deleting the app and re installing? Full Review

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge - I keep wanting to love this app, but I keep winding up back at Textra. They fixed the issue of not allowing an enter/return button, but I noticed myself accidentally archiving a bunch of conversations. It's easy enough to unarchive, but that just shouldn't happen. Also, I keep getting what appear to be banner messages when I perform certain actions (like mute a conversation), but it just appears as a black bar at the top of the app that goes away after a few secs.

Nice app... But it keeps messages like junk. Messages are not organized. Im Looking for more improvements like automatic message organizer and more innovative.If you are giving an update make sure you improve on each update. Just giving update every week for sake doesn't makes sense. Full Review

App has this weird bug where it gets stuck typing (bug could also be in Gboard?) And I have to reboot the phone to get it working again. I do like the interface though and it has a clean design but because of the bug I've gone back to Verizon messages in the meantime. Pixel 2. Android 8.1 Full Review

I am extremely disappointed with Android Messages. It is glitchy, irritating, unhelpful, and has not improved over time. If I didn't have Google Fi I would have to stop using it. Instead of adding stickers and emojis it would be great if they could just make it more effective at doing what it is supposed to: sending and receiving text messages. The biggest issue is communicating with iPhones, although Android Messages might not be the weakest link in that situation. But in sum, it really just needs to be debugged and patched. Full Review

The new update has made it extremely laggy. Whole conversations appear as blank, forcing me to close the app and reopen it just to see what the other person said. I've had many messages show up as not sent, even though it did go through. This leads to me sending duplicate messages to people, confusing them and me. The older version was fine there was no need to update it. Sometimes this update is not even usable and it's frustrating. Sometimes when I'm typing it lags and what I wrote does not show up until minutes after. Full Review

This app will occasionally fail to send or receive messages. There appears to be no rhyme or reason why. Data and Wi-Fi connection are both at full strength. It will just sit on "Sending..." for HOURS. Your error handling is non-existent. What good is a messaging app that doesn't send/receive messages? Absolute trash. Full Review

Feels like it is trying too hard to be like Facebook Messanger. I don't like how when I go to attach a picture I have an extra step and have more otions that are useless to me. Maybe make it so you have the option to turn off the stickers and other things? The archive function is buggy and will cause a portion of my screen to go black for a few seconds when I use it and does not give me the option to undo if I accidentally swip a thread away.I am also having issues when I send and receive texts. It will tell me I have a text but when I go to check it there is only a bank screen and I have to close out of the app completely reopen it and then I can view my texts. Please fix this or go back to the previous version. Full Review

Stop adding useless junk like emojis and stickers. Make it more user friendly for those who want a REAL minimalist messaging application. Make it so that you can change the background color. I prefer white text on black background. Full Review

This is tiring Google. As a Google Voice user this is also useless as it uses the carrier number. No one has my carrier number. I don't even know it. Why not improve Hangouts? Full Review

Suffers from persistent notifications even after all new messages have been read. I have to reboot to stop the endless notifications. Silencing it from the phone only delays the inevitable reboot. Full Review

Almost the perfect messenger app. Would upgrade it to 5 stars if one could swipe to delete rather than just archiving. C'mon Google. All other messenger apps have this feature. Can we please have the ability to swipe to delete a thread? Full Review

Anytime I get a long text I receive them out of order. It doesn't matter how much I like other features when I have to decipher what someone is messaging me in a messaging app. The exact thing it's designed for. Full Review

For some reason, this app has always been a bit slow on my Pixel. You'd think the Google phone and this google app would be optimal together. Apparently not. I don't even have anything customized Texts would frequently stall. Sometimes, it doesn't send send in certain locations. Which would be understandable, but I tried using Message+ from Verizon and it is able to send texts just fine in the same conditions. The final nail in the coffin was after the latest Android update last week. The app now crashes frequently, the keyboard doesn't always load, sometimes I type something and it doesn't show up, and texts still stall or take forever to send. When the app works it's fine, but the issues are too egregious for a texting app. I've switched to another. Full Review
