SO WHAT'S NEW?
** Now we support Android Wear. You can reply to messages from your wrist like Richard Tracy of the modern world.
**We brought back Landscape view to make people working on tablets happy. Sorry 'bout that.
**We also made avatar-view standard on tablets, phones and watches. So you know exactly who you're dealing with and how to respond.
** Files will upload in the background. So what? Well you can keep chatting while you are uploading that giant presentation file.
**As a super-bonus we added support for .gifv files because we know you're team thrives on pygmy goat gifs as much as we do. We like gifv because it's a smoother animated experience that uses less data (boomsup)

Always Connecting I like the app, but its been unreliable at delivering messages even with the always stay connected option enabled. Nearly everytime I open the app it says its connecting.

Good! Idk if its just me, but whenever i open the app, 99% of the time it shows "connecting" for like almost a minute. Then when i send a message, it will fail 98% of the time and i will have to resend it atleast 3x before it send successfully. I have a good internet connection though.

App works fine, but odd visual choices The app works for me, but the very loose spacing of chats listed on the screen is annoying. I see only 8.5 chats at once, with a lot of wasted white space, where you could fit up to 14, still with good readability. Are you maybe constrained by Google's Material Design guidelines? And the reddish icon is ugly.

(shrug) I don't mind the red icon.

Uh, red icon...NO After spending five minutes trying to find a setting that changed, I uninstalled it then reinstalled it, just to find out the red icon is a FEATURE. What?? Bad choice guys. Just put the blue one back with the beta flag please. Thought something was wrong with my phone. It looks terrible. Don't respond to this review justifying it, like you did to Aaron Rogers review also. Instead, listen to your user base and fix it.
