1. launch sms
2. create a new message (hit +)
3. place in a contact, hit +, add another contact
4. type in a message
5. send

Expected: message to multiple contacts will send in one thread
Actual: individual messages is sent to each contact
We discussed this a lot already, and we figured it's less intuitive to do what you suggest than the current behavior.

Our first implementation did this. But what happens when you open the thread for one of your contact and you don't see that message ?

We wanted to do what you propose when sending MMS to several people (called: "groupe MMS") but we pulled out the functionality for now, since there are a number of technical shortcomings, and this is seldom used in competitor devices.
Flagging Ayman if you want to add more context.

We have gone round and round in circles with this and expended a lot of time and energy discussing. Currently this is behaving as agreed. The constraint that leads to this solution is with how gaia has been coded (I believe). Vicamo could advise further with this.

However from a UX PoV we have far more pressing bugs to address so marking this a wontfix
