Direct Messages on Strava

I think that Strava needs more social function in its system in order to increase its attractivity and its expansion. 

Some of my suggestions are :

 

1. A personal message system

2. An event scheduler which permits athletes to plan a group event 

 

I think both features would help to develop the commuity

  • @mentions in comments don't really help in this regard. If I write comment without an @mention the user gets notified about that comment anyway. But if the comment is totally unrelated to the activity then it doesn't make sense. A direct message system is a no-brainer for Strava...

  • It would be the first thing I would add to strava.  I can't belive it's not already part of the program.

  • The community has spoken...please add PVT messaging....all social media has this function. It's the basic and obvious purpose of all social media products.

  • So needed it's silly:). How the heck are you suppose to coordinate training activities? Gaping hole in the platform. Easy need to spot and handle.

  • This is ridiculous.  I've been getting thread subscription notifications for this thread for two years now and still no PMs.

  • Why doesn't Strava give you an update one way or the other on popular suggested features?  Even if they just said "we have other priorities right now, this probably won't be available for a while," that would be nice.

  • I would love to have a private message system. There are people I only know through strava. Without pvt message system, conversations that should be private end up public and exchange of contact information is cumbersome.

  • I just received an email from STRAVA announcing STRAVA for Android Wear.  Obviously, STRAVA developers have the know-how to create new features.  Why, then, is direct messaging so elusive?

  • Private messages would be great. I follow people on Strava that I don't know outside of cycling and don't connect with on other social networks. Would love to have this feature

  • I have just joined Strava and one of the first things I wanted to do was direct message someone I met when out riding a few weeks back. We had a lot of common interests and he asked me if I was on Strava so we could stay in touch. For ride metrics I've found Garmin Connect sufficient for my needs so my main motivation for joining Strava was to connect with other cyclists I might meet out on the road. So I joined Strava and found the guy I wanted to connect with in less than a minute with the Strava search function and then went looking for the messaging button which surely had to be there somewhere!!!!! But no, to my absolute astonishment and disappointment I discovered that Strava does not have any private messaging capability. WTF???? Are you kidding me. And then I find this discussion thread on the subject going back over 3 years with members of the Strava community expressing similar dismay as myself and imploring Strava to do something about it. Seriously Strava, you need to listen to your community and address their needs. You have a very disappointed new member.

  • +1 for private messaging.   I'm trying to reach someone I met riding to set up another ride and don't want to blather about the details in activity comments.  The only way I can think of is to share my email in comments and hope that I don't get Strava stalked.  I don't have a ton of followers and I don't want to make my rides private.  C'mon Strava. Listen to your users.

  • There is a third party website velomsg.com that kind of delivers this functionality.  To connect you need to leave a public message on an activity and the other person must join velomsg.com.  But once connected it will do what you need, it connects you to Strava athletes and it comes up in your activity profile in Strava notifying you of messages.  Not perfect, but sometimes things aren't.  I am not affiliated with the developer, I just use the site to message mates I ride with and am not connected with on other social media platforms.

  • Please can we get direct message feature going soon, mention in comments is cool but I don't want to be sharing my personal contact details publicly and also don't want to search on social media for a person, would just like to message them directly on Strava as it will be convenient.

  • https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000164764-Tool-for-personal-messages

    "Hello Strava-Team,

    would it be possiple to implement something like a personal messaging tool into Strava? As far as I know it is just possible to write public visible comments below activities.

    It would be good for people to directly contact others: to arrange activities, keeping in touch with people that you are not connected to in other networks or to get to know people who want to follow you.

    And maybe it would be helpful to mail another athlete directly to clarify flagged activities, for example when someone thinks that there is something wrong with an activity you have done. This, as a "first clarifying step" would also reduce the amount of work the Strava-support has to do.

    Best regards,

    Hans"

  • Sorry, but this is no use,
    Lots and lots of suggestions, but precious few are taken i consideration.

    PM has been on this list since 2012.
    That's a loooong time.

    I love Strava,
    I really do, but there is really no  use in asking for new features her.

    Sorry.

  • Just one more request which I feel will be ignored.

    Please add a personal message system.  We don't all know each others e-mail addresses and don't necessarily want others to know it, but personal messages are available in almost every social environment app.  Strava's strong suit is the social aspect of segment comparison yet it lacks personal messaging and picture uploads except Instagram.  Seriously guys, if you're gunna be social based in segment comparisons, at least play up all your social elements... If you want to be the premier app, you need t address the other issues like audible routing and better overall stat tools.

     

    I used to be a premium member, but I am feeling like Strava has begun to abandon their product and are just letting it sit as-is.  I can't really fund something that is abandonware.  Please prove me wrong.

  • I too would like the message system.  If somebody I follow has not been out for a while, being able to message them to encourage them to come out for a ride would be useful.

  • I spoke to someone that works for Strava.  A messaging system has been considered however it is not a top priority.  My personal take on it is that without a messaging system there is a lot less liability and privacy concerns.  So many other platforms that Strava links into have the messaging ability so why put yourself at risk.  Not a bad strategy in this crazy world (if my suspicion is correct).

  • How is it possible that there is still no private message function on Strava? Please add this feature, seems like it would be a no-brainer.
