How to Painlessly Search Your Text Messages

Your mom totally sent you step-by-step instructions for roasting cauliflower, but somehow, you can’t seem to find it anywhere in your lengthy text message chain (which, btw, dates back to 2014). Here, how to quickly search--and find--exactly what you’re looking for.

What you need to do: Open up your messages app, then scroll up until you see a search bar. That’s where you’ll plug in a word or two that reference what you’re looking for (like “cauliflower” or “recipe,” for example).

What happens next: The text message you’ve been searching for will appear immediately. Even better, it will open up to the exact spot in the chain (even if your mom sent it to you all the way back on May 17, 2015).

Time = saved. Yay, technology!
