I got Facebook message today from my cousin. It had attachment which was shown ok in Facebook web-pages. However, I was curious to see how same message was shown in Jolla's messaging app. I wasn't happy what was the outcome, because attachment wasn't shown which was very crucial part of the message.

Implementation of the FB-chat is not appropraite if attachment are not visible nor new attachments (pictures, files etc.) cannot be inserted.

IDEA: Please implement FB-chat so that whole messages can be displayed (attachments are ONE part of the message).

I agree, I am used to sending/receiving a lot of pictures/videos/voice/smilies/whatever_attachments alongside with my messages when using facebook messenger (let alone using free phone calls of facebook messenger / skype but that must be somewhere further away) and as Jolla should be a feat of the future in social media integration, I see this as a very important new feature. At the moment I have my other phone available for taking photos and sending them always when possible, just to do it fluently. Which is a bit sad.

But don't get me wrong, I am still amazed how beautiful device Jolla is when it does what is asked from it, just it has still some (nautical) miles to travel.
