• Whisper in the shadows – Switch to the dark theme if you refuse to see the light.
• Sound familiar – Choose custom alerts for each contact, or disable noises completely. Simon & Garfunkel wrote a hit song about it in 1964, and you can experience the sound of silence whenever you want by choosing “None” as your notification ringtone.
• Picture this – Use the built-in image editing features to sketch, crop, and flip your outgoing photos. There’s even a text tool so that you can add more words to the 1,000 that your picture is already worth.

Come on, Signal!! Give us user IDs already instead of requiring phone numbers! If Session messenger, a fork of Signal, can do it, so can you!!I wish it didn’t require disclosing my phone number and the phone numbers of my contacts in order to function. Phone numbers can be used to identify people by name, although Signal claims they hash phone numbers and don’t have access to actual phone numbers. I’m still hoping that some day they implement an alternative method that doesn’t require providing ANY personal information. Until then, I’ll stick to alternatives like Wickr and Threema. Signal is the best choice if you don’t mind giving out your phone number.

—- APP ISSUES—-- App is not smooth... it’s a slow and buggy. It drains the mdmory and freezes the phone. Bad. Phone heats up fast when using this app. Hmm... - While making a video call, the receiver does not get the ring tone when the screen is locked but the sender can hear the ring tone. Can’t understand the issue. Something is not right here. Looks like a serious bug. - Selecting media from the library to messages is not smooth. The selection is not buttery smooth. Unintended photos get selected while navigating. Need a seamless experience —- FEATURE REQUEST——- Need iCloud message backup feature. Surprised that the feature doesn’t exist. - Need to bookmark or star ⭐️ specific messages - Need a feature to send and receive "Apple Live Photos" without losing the format i.e., without flattening the photos (i.e., don’t convert Live Photos into static images during transmission: the recipient should be able to view the Live Photo as well. Currently, this is possible only in iMessage. But, how about accomplishing this in Signal? - Ability to send more than 50+ media files at once...- how about “Broadcast list” for sending messages to multiple recipients mutually exclusively? - how about a feature the lets users compose short “video messages” like audio message, like in Viber? That’d be great addition. - Ability to schedule messages to send at a later date... - Need a feature that will delay sending the messages by 30 sec...more like Gmail.. - Need better organization of the photos... how about stitching all photos by creating an album within Signal for better viewing (like in WhatsApp)...- Need the “reply” feature for voice and video messages - Need the ability to edit messages even after sending (like in Viber)- Need group call feature - Need a better organization of the message with emphasis on the chronology - “time stamp” in the chat screen. Right now, it’s hard to locate a message sent a while ago (on a specific date)... While scrolling the message, the time stamp is static and not is not dynamic.
