Group messaging allows you to send and receive text, picture and video messages between multiple contacts in a group using multimedia messaging (MMS). You need to enable group messaging in your device settings to use it.
Enabling group messaging on your device
Group messaging is automatically enabled by default on Apple devices. The steps to enable group messaging on other devices vary by manufacturer and model.
Note: If someone receives a group message but does not have group messaging enabled, their reply will only be sent to the original sender, not the whole group.
- A device with Apple iOS 13.3 and above or Android 9.0 and above
- An eligible data plan
- Text, picture and video messages sent and received in a group chat will be charged as a multimedia message (MMS) which will be applied against your rate plan
