    Question Missing microphone icon on facebook messenger

    I had it since some days ago and used many times to send voice messages.
    Soon after phone firmware update (not sure that's the root cause) to Android 4.42 the icon disappeared and I see the magnify lens icon in its place.
    I have tried many things, unstall & install again the apps and to reset the phone and restart from scratch .. nothing changed, the icon is missing on my samsung galaxy S4 GT-I9505
    Does anyone have same problem ?
    How do I fix it ?
    thank you in advance

    I could be wrong but this is a feature Facebook is just testing, not fully rolled out. It might be that they removed it from your region, decided that your account wasn't right for the test, or haven't released compatibility with your phone and OS version (although I'm also running KitKat 4.4.2 on a Note 3 and that shouldn't be very different than the S4, and I CAN see the voice message button).

    For example, I used to be able to have a Facebook notification bar widget, and then, without updating anything, it just went away and hasn't been back since. Yet, some other folks still have that feature available.

    Thank you for the info but I do not think that's the case.
    I'll try to explain what I experienced
    - in my region other folks with other devices can use it
    - the microphone icon has been replaced by a magnifier lens ... If I click on it nothing happens
    - I used the icon since long time without any issues ... now it is missing
    - just once (after I reset everything on the phone) I saw it a different interface then it dispappeared
    see picture below for better understanding

    does anybody have some idea ?
