I just updated it today. And before when a new text message would come in, the Avatar of whoever would be texting me would appear in the upper right hand corner and in the upper left hand corner it would say one new text message. the Avatar will no longer appear in the corner, and even contacts that I don't have an avatar for their initials won't even show up. Now I cannot see who texts me.
I know how strange changes to an app can seem. We want to make sure you still know who is texting you without issue. Can you provide more details about where on your phone you were seeing this before? What type of phone are you using this app on?
