I have the same problem. I don’t have the button anymore either as of yesterday. I play on iOS and have the current version of candy crush. The attached screenshot shows that the option of sending lives to friends prior to starting a level is gone. This is new version 😀 you will find them when you passed a level 😁
Hello guysThe Game Studios are constantly working on improving our games by introducing new features, gameplay or concepts.They changed some rules for Send lives. Before, you could send lives through open a level, but now you can send Lives after passing the level.But I do not have any information about how long it can last.
