Common Signal - Private Messenger App Problems and Troubleshooting Steps

Android, iOS, or macOS operating system users may encounter a problem where an app will display a black screen for a few seconds before crashing, with or without an error message. However, there are a few methods you can try to fix this issue:

  1. Sometimes, this problem may be caused by a temporary loading issue. To fix this, go to the recent applications menu on your phone, usually accessed by the first left button, and close the app that is experiencing the issue. Then, re-open the app.
  2. If that doesn't work, try doing a hard reboot of your iPhone, iPad, Mac or Android device by simultaneously pressing and holding the "Home" and "Power" buttons for up to 10 seconds, then release them and hold the "Power" button until the screen turns on. After that, try opening the app again.
  3. If none of the above solutions work, another option is to wait for the phone battery to drain and turn off automatically. After that, charge the phone and turn it on and try opening the app again.
  4. If the problem persists, you may need to uninstall and re-install the app. Re-installing the app will restore all settings.
  5. If the app still does not work, you can try installing older versions of the app.

Signal - Private Messenger Developer Updates

Version 6.54 20 December 2023

• We fixed a bug that caused muted chats that were marked as unread to still appear in the unread total on the Signal icon even when that setting was disabled. Now the badge count consistently ignores any conversations that you choose to consistently ignore. • This update also enables VoiceOver support for message reactions, stickers, and wallpaper color selections..

Version 6.50 15 November 2023

• We updated the contact sharing interface, so now you can send your friend the info for your favorite interior decorator on a screen that has already been redecorated. You can still select which fields to share for maximum feng shui too..

• We fixed a few bugs in the device transfer process just in case anyone is getting ready to announce some new phones soon..

Version 6.32 13 July 2023

• We updated the icons within the app to help improve legibility, especially if you live within the darkness of Dark Mode. The previous icons merely adopted the dark. These new icons were born in it, molded by it..

Version 6.23 11 May 2023

• We added a new (and optional) List mode in the All Media view. If you decide to go off the grid, now you can see more info at a glance, including file names, file sizes, dates, etc. • This release also includes several performance improvements and startup speed enhancements. If you have a lot of large conversations, or a lot of messages, we hope that you’ll notice a little difference..

Version 6.12 03 March 2023

• The new and improved All Media view makes it easier to spot old GIFs in your favorite chats, keep track of where you are in the timeline while scrolling, and see the length of individual videos. • We fixed a few bugs, including one that sometimes made an endless progress spinner appear while trying to leave a group. If you have been enthusiastically trying to escape from an "Escape Room Enthusiasts" group, the puzzle has been solved and the door is now open..

Great for organizing an event, making an announcement, or just shouting from the rooftops. All members must be on the latest version of Signal for the setting to appear. • We know you love speed (and we don't mean the 1994 blockbuster hit starring Sandra Bullock), so sending messages is now faster than ever..

Version 5.18.3 18 August 2021

• A picture may be worth 1k words, but now you can send them in 4k. Use the the new quality selector to optionally send higher-resolution photos. You can also default to always send higher resolution photos in Settings > Data Usage. • When you long press a message, a snappy new menu lets you quickly react, reply, delete, and more. • Introducing “My Daily Life”, a new animated sticker pack by artist Plastic Thing. • We’ve made several improvements to help make scrolling your chat list smoother..

Version 5.10 25 April 2021

• Fall in love with several improvements to the media upload and download experience. It may seem like everything is happening really fast, especially when you send multiple photos and videos all at once, but love is like that sometimes. It's OK to start feeling more attached to sending more attachments. • Love and loss are inextricably connected, so we also broke up with a bug that made it impossible to share long videos from other apps (like the iOS Photos app). • As part of our ongoing efforts to redesign and enhance the app, we updated the chat settings screen to make common actions easier to find and to help you find common ground in one-on-one chats by displaying the groups that both of you have in common.

Version 5.6 01 March 2021

• Between the improvements in this update and the improvements in the last update, Signal can now process 16,500% more messages per second. Now you can immediately see the mountain of unread messages that arrived while your cellular reception was taking a hike. • Incoming video calls weren't always ringing for some users on iOS 14, but we aren't hung up on this bug anymore. • People with tons and tons of contacts may still struggle to handle the weight of their own popularity, but Signal no longer makes them wait as long or struggles to handle their super-large address books.
