When I open a text with a pic attached there is a "play" button displayed. When I touch that, the text "plays" on the screen followed by the pic for a short duration. If I touch the screen while the message is "playing" a control/progress bar appears and I can pause the message during the pic. However, in this state, the pic cannot be zoomed, saved, etc.
What gives? I want pics in text attachments to open as just that, pics and not video.
