    Allow Search Words entered as text, to find a Grindr member or chat from any word contained.

    This would be great to add back in. It was in previous versions of Grindr but got removed.

    Have a vedio call facility and also search for guys in a particular city , useful when visiting a city prior to visit.

    Restore the search feature for chats. This enabled to quickly locate a guy of interest etc thru extensive chat histories

    Is better to have a search collum on topof the inbox so we dont need scroll down much to trace back the conversation.

    I am able to filter my search for guys who meet my specified criteria, but still can receive messages/taps from guys who do NOT meet my criteria. It's annoying and wastes my time!

    Earlier there sorting option was there using words. Which was useful to search old profiles or messages.

    Searching through messages was probably one of the most useful features that Grindr has provided. Searching with keywords in chat to bring up past messages or even a profile would improve user experience.

    You used to be able to search a word from all your messages. Was very helpful to pull up a previous person you chatted with.

    You used to have a feature to search my inbox for words or messages but you got rid of it. Can you bring it back??

    I've been an Xtra member for ages and I know this feature once existed.

    It would be great to be able to search/filter through messages. Sometimes you have a great conversation with someone but by the time you go online again there are a ton of other messages above theirs. Being able to search key words from your conversation would be amazing and help connections last- sometimes you don't want to favorite someone just yet. ?
