Being a supporter does not allow you to come into a thread and disrupt it with crazy howls about racism.

If you have a comment on new updates, you're welcome to make it. If not, stay out.

I am not disrupting I am just voicing out what I feel that it's not right.. You go back to the chat thread  about racism.. about Asian.. Smule is not only for White English people... Just be sensitive.. This Group Chat is Multicultural, all genders, all ages from kids to seniors if you know... 😞😞

Perhaps you should offer a quote so that we know what you're talking about.

I haven't seen that thread but of course that's not acceptable. If you raise objections wherever there's such a discussion, everyone would be supportive of that.

I just discovered another “improvement”. When I go through the list of OCs for a song, I would always preview the songs to find the best ones worth joining. Now I can’t preview the songs anymore. All I can do is directly join them. Of course that’s a terrible way to just check out an OC, especially with video, where there is no skipping. And if check out an OC this way and then exit it again, I am not in the list of OCs anymore. So, I would have to start over from scratch.

The menu also doesn’t help. It offers a bookmark option, which then just results in an error message for expired OCs. This too makes no sense. Either this option shouldn’t even be available for expired OCs or it should be possible to bookmark expired OCs. But offering a choice that will necessarily lead to an error message makes no sense at all.

My thoughts exactly. They opened up all invites, but didn't want to do the work to make the rest of the framework go along with that. It was even worse right after they opened up expired invites, for weeks everyone had hundreds of invites open, slowing down the whole app. I don't think these coders test their changes - or maybe they just don't know how to because they don't use the app.

As for the other improvements, they've re-written the code. This was seasoned code, working and optimized for over 5 years, and they just decide to re-write the app because they introduced Styles. Clueless software writers like these I have not come across in my career😣

This was changed again in the recent update. Now joining opens certain OCs full screen and you can (or must) flip through them one by one. So, the preview is back, but you can’t select which OC to preview from a list. 🤦‍♂️

Often when you open the Smule app, the screen goes all purple and hangs in that state until you restart the app. This has been a problem for a long time, but their recent changes have made it worse (it happens a lot more). Why can't they ever figure out and fix these things?
