Button with label "See in chat" does nothing in the messages app

I want to be able to use the messages app without damages and without painful confusion but basic functionality is not there. For example, there is no simple way to go to the beginning, there is no simple way to export a chat and I can't even press the button labeled "See in chat" for an image or a video. So it becomes impossible to manage the chat history, even though it is a very basic feature. I can only assume it was done on purpose to make it more expensive for the customer e.g. searching for support and pay for a solution to the problem that the company sold to me. 

I thought Samsung and Apple created atrocities with their products so I switched to Asus and the Zenfone causes a lot of damage and extremely painful confusion, but at least it is not as harmful as Apple or Samsung.

The idea to blame the customer and even accuse them of "conspiracy theories"

...will that ever result in working software....ever?

Problem is not solved. Instead we see a lot of bullcrap waste comments from bullcrap waste sources. I reported the bug 10 times or more. The reply from the billion-dollar companies only confirm that they are terrorist organizations. Nothing was worked on.

The button with label "See in chat" works for links, but it does not work for images or videos. When I press it for a link, it takes me to the chat, but for an image or a video, the button (has a different color there too) does nothing.

That's a google problem tho

Are you a business lawyer specialized in software licenses? I think you should be careful jumping to the wrong conclusion. If a company bundles software and sells it, the company is usually responsible for the included software no matter who is their supplier.


If you are not a lawyer then you should remove your stupid comment.
