This is still under review by the feature team.
Why would you NOT have this
This feature request has now moved to “working on it”. The team is actively working on this request and I will share more details as they become available.
It appears that as of the Sept 13th update, search will now show you the conversation and not just the single message. (#3 on this list)
At least in the desktop app. The web version appears to still just show single messages.
This item is still under review. No new updates at this time.
Who made the bigger mistake here:
the people who built a chat platform without this basic feature,
or me for adopting a chat platform that is missing this basic feature?
