I'm fresh off of a hard reset from maybe 3 days ago but on my 640 xl, the messenger app is incredibly slow almost unbearable to use
Typing sentences are laggy to the point where when typing a sentence sometimes the words you type don't come up til 30 seconds or more later, and touching one of the auto suggested words takes about the same time to appear in the text field. Is this happening to anyone else?

Doubt it. My fiance's L640 is having trouble and her phone isn't updating/caching since that all completed yesterday. It started sometime over night.

Nothing pending in my store and messenger is the only app that lags like that aside from beta facebook

"Overnight" there was another update apps / builds wave. Remember you are fresh of hard reset, your phone has to learn your typin behaviours (check Settings, Text ,Let Microsoft learn how I'm typing)

No, I'm not. And no, there weren't. All of the updates had been completed by that point.

the iOS port right? quick answer: you shouldn't have updated, my 8.1 app is happily serving me now and I left that "update" pending in the store, where it will stay forever

I'm sure a update will fix the issue. The 8.1 app is outdated and has connection issues. U can't do half the things on that old app that u can on the new app

The old app would struggle to connect at times when initially opening the app or multitasking back to the app. On the old app u cant view gifs,u can't upload videos from storage, can't play any of the games, can't manage chat colors or nicknames... Ur missing out on alot of things. The stability issues with the new app just sprung up it worked fine for me when it was first released. It gets frequent updates....when was the last time the 8.1 app was updated?

I have it on a l535 and l640. For me, it's kind of slow to load and sluggish overall, animatons aren't very fluid, but definetely not unbearable, yet. These ios ports from facebook aren't very optimal at all, but maybe it's better than nothing. Wonder how better these apps would be if they were using the microsoft's tools instead of facebook's osmeta.

But the most important thing is the Windows 10 app is supported with updates. It's been a few years since the 8.1 app has been updated any api change or back end change can break that app rendering it useless

Holy off topic Batman!

Back to original topic of messaging...I see the same (at times) of slow typing, a lot of missed letters that cause misspellings. Biggest complaint, though is the freezing of the messaging app and phone. At times, the phone freezes when I click the send arrow simply reply to a text message. It won't even power down, that screen freezes, too. I have to hold the power button until it forces a restart. Then of course I get the SD is corrupt message and a question to scan. Happens way too often.

Lumia 735 on Verizon.

its the same app, pcs just have so much cpu headroom that it doesnt matter how bad they code it, nor how fine tuned the interface is, mouse and kb is foolproof

only problem on pc is that my phone will keep ringing while i chat on pc messenger, it doesnt happen with a 3rd party "desktop messenger" that is essentially a web wrapper with black theme and even drag and drop file transfers

Same here, although I find this true only when I used the Beta version of the Messenger app on mobile (using it on my L830). The non-Beta version that I used before was alright, I guess. It was kinda smooth for me, with few minor hiccups in between. Might uninstall the beta version for the official one to see if that't the cause

I've been using it all day today and it's fine. I'm on the 950xl latest redstone. The only problem is that it takes a bit to load initially. A good 8 seconds.
