Stay in touch with friends and family, send group texts, and share your favorite pictures, GIFs, emoji, stickers, videos and audio messages.

Sucks! Every time I do an update things get worse. I no longer see wether a message has been delivered/read. I wish I had never updated this app. I have problems with everything that is google. It\'s very invasive and I don\'t understand the language that describes the terms of use and privacy or the description of function. Most don\'t think it\'s worth even one star. Tried recmd fix. Didn\'t work. Update used to grant more permission to google.

I haven\'t had any issues with this app for months. But all of a sudden it is locking up on me. When I open it, all I see is a blank screen. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it (based on Google\'s reply to similar reviews). It seems that other users are having the same issue. Very frustrating as I am unable to text out or receive anything.

Not a fan of the new update. I used the speak to text feature all the time, and I\'ve noticed that it puts down the wrong words more often than what it usually did. In addition, when it does put the wrong words down, I can\'t tap on it and select other options that it might have thought I meant. I usually have to go in and delete the word, then re say it. I also noticed that when I send pictures, I can\'t back out of the send picture mode. I have to go to the keyboard mode, then back out.

I\'m so over this app, and finally threw in the towel. It\'s been so buggy for months, but the Messages for Web feature was really useful so I kept using it. But this past week, I\'ve had enough. Group texts don\'t send or come through. Yesterday I found at least 10 texts that never downloaded (they were in individual text chains, I had to hit \"download,\" but since it was days later they were expired). When I go to start a new message, it takes 10-20 seconds for names to populate, then another 10-20 seconds to get to the text. I\'ll type in my message and hit send, and it won\'t even appear for 10-20 seconds. If I close out before it appears, the message will just disappear and never send. Their solution is \"send feedback.\" I\'ve been sending feedback for months, with no results. Very disappointing to see such a poor product from Google.

Basically, this Messages app does everything I want it to do without much fuss, which is to send and display all text and most visual messages that I have between myself and others using SMS and MMS. Basically, once I get the settings right I never have to know which messaging protocol (SMS or MMS) it needs to use. Messages just works with either one without my having to adjust it further.

Just Horrible. It Used to be a pretty good app, but lately it\'s been shuffling and constantly resending messages multiple times whenever they\'re sent. Plus, I can no longer send pictures, apperantly. It never sends through, and on the rare occasions it does, it\'s random pictures from my phone, and once it was a random picture from the recipients\' phone, not even from me. This has been happening more and more over the past year. Maybe year and a half now. The Updates don\'t work. Doesn\'t send txts

Had to make the switch as hangouts is going away. The first thing I noticed is that media does not come through for hours. I still have hangouts running concurrently and media comes across immediately. With this app a simple picture will not show up for hours and all I see is a download arrow that does nothing. I have tried this issue multiple times but have heard nothing.

Love it, but please add the option to disable swipe to archive. This accidentally happens way too frequently for me. I\'d love to disable this as an option, similar to Gmail. Also, it would be an amazing option if we could make the textbox bigger or expand it. I\'m often having to write out longer messages in Google Keep and copy over to messages. I like this app, more than the default, but there\'s definitely room for improvement. Both things wold significantly improve the app and make it 5 stars.

For the last week, this will not download MMS messages. I get a constant \'Message expired or unavailable\' error. Tried a factory reset and still will not work. Tried uninstalling the message app and reinstalling but that was no help. Seems like a lot of regular text messages aren\'t being received now too. Pretty frustrating. I don\'t know what else to try to fix this.
Kristen Nimrichter 2021-02-27

I followed the directions and advice in your response, I have also sent three reports within the app to the feedback. Now... a simple text message won\'t even go through. This has only been happening the last three or four months. Perhaps an update has screwed it up? I really, truly, do not want to buy into the Monopoly that is Apple. I have avoided it this long. Please fix this issue...please. Especially in this pandemic, my phone is my only means of communication!
