I personally don't mind the new UI. While I don't like it, it still works for better or for worse. However the one thing I have consistently been using since I've owned an Android phone that has suddenly been removed much to the disdain of most Android users is the ability to tap on a user icon to mention them. Before the update, tapping a user icon would paste that user's tag in your text entry box so you could ping them. Holding down on that user's icon would open the user action menu where you can see linked accounts, notes, and send friend requests and the like. In the newest update, tapping the user icon now performs the same action as holding it down, and the mention by tap action has been completely removed. This is a blatant and quite frankly unnecessary regression, especially considering that both actions (the hold down on the icon and tap on the icon) still exist. Moreover, mentioning users on Android functions differently than iOS. On Android, the ping context menu (pops up after typing '@') sorts by name alphabetically. On iOS, it sorts by most recent message. Quickly and contextually mentioning a user on iOS is much easier than on Android in an active conversation, especially where users may have non-latin usernames that you can't type on a standard QWERTY keyboard, or whatever the user may own. It seems like removing this feature was an attempt to bring parity to the iOS and Android clients, but this is too much of a blunt-faced regression to be considered reasonable. Much of the conversations I now have require using the quote feature, which is not only cumbersome but can clog conversations with unnecessary text. This is one small change that can be easily undone. Please consider.
