This seems to be a common problem among all messaging apps that is quite infuriating. I am in a text messaging group with 6 other people and it's not uncommon for me to be getting text messages from this group on a constant basis all day long. The problem is if I step away from my phone for a bit and come back I might have 50 or so unread messages from the group that I need to read through. The problem is once I get up to the first unread message and start reading and another message comes in the app immediately jumps me to the bottom and I have to scroll back up all over again. Ideally the behavior of the app should be that if I scroll back up to read unread messages any new messages that come in should not cause the app to auto-scroll to the bottom. Once I get all the way to the bottom auto-scrolling would then resume as new messages come in. I looked around in the settings and there does not appear to be any way to set this behavior.
Thank you for your message and sharing your experience.
I will share the feedback with the developers to test the 'scroll' issue for a fix if it is a bug. if not a bug,
Thanks for your patience!
