    Microsoft should be ashamed for putting out an app that is lacking all the features that android and IOS have. They obviously don't care about the people that buy their phones. Can't send files, can't delete contacts, and the list goes on. Also a huge battery drain. Hope they redeem themselves with Skype integration with windows 10.

    Works. With high battery consumption, late alerts, show responses, but works. Little bit better than the Facebook messenger, far, far worse than WhatsApp.

    Does not load contacts. Keeps crashing

    - Battery drainer... - On the main screen, the time stamp of the last received message overflows the right margin. - It should have a dark background (instead of high contrast). - It takes huge amount of time to load. - In overall it should be faster. Takes too much time opening.
