After typing the message,are you tapping the paper aeroplane icon on the right of the text box
I'm having the same issue as well. Definitely pressing the correct send button.
Hey @Legereness and @Ctcamm

Can you confirm whether you're using web or the app?

Are you able to tap the aeroplane icon, or does it not let you?

I'm using the app. It registers that I tap the paperplane but doesn't do anything
Hi @Legereness and @Ctcamm

Sorry you're having this problem when using WattBot. Could I ask if you're connecting to the internet via wi-fi on your phone (and if that's at home or work)? If you can temporarily switch wi-fi off on your device, it should then connect via the 3G/4G/5G network. Let me know if this allows you to send a message to WattBot. There might be some setting blocking WattBot from working over your wi-fi connection and we will investigate this further.
I have tried wifi on it's own, 4G on it's own, and both together. The message still won't send to Wattbot.

This seems to have started with the app update, I'm on 7.20.3 (scroll to menu bottom for version) and mine is working ok.
perhaps try deleting app, restarting phone and reloading app?

ohhh I'm not sure now!! The app store isn't offering me an update so presumed 7.20.3 was higher than 7.20.16. ooohhh, anyone else like to check?
Sometimes the app store does take a while to update...I'll be back in a min..
I think you are correct, just checked my updates and it hasn't updated recently, what date did yours update?
Suggestion. (I admit to being stupid, should have checked first but busy trying to wreck my new computer...)
Mine should have been named 7.20.03 then it would have been a lot clearer, I hope they take this on board. 7.20.16 is obviously higher than 7.20.03.
​Stick to convention!
the upshot being my test is valid pre-update, I'll test again if it updates.

Hey Woz,

The real issue is that PP didn't warn about the latest update which was only a day or so after the 7.20.3

Hey everyone, another update for you!

We released an app update for Android devices today with various bug fixes.

We're looking to release an update for iOS tomorrow, I'll let you know here once this goes ahead :up:

For now you'll see that the option to send a photo via WattBot has been removed (while we're working on a fix) - if the team do need a photo from you, they'll provide an email address to send these through to :)
