Group messaging is a great way to get a message across to multiple people at once. It can be helpful for things like invitations to parties or events, if you have a lot of friends and colleagues, or just want to notify them about something that’s going on in your life.
Creating a group chat on Android is fairly simple and straightforward. All you need to do is open up your messaging app (on most phones it’s Messages), start a new conversation, and add the contacts that you want to include in the chat. You can also use the “+” icon to add contacts from your contact list.
If you’re sending an MMS group text, make sure that your mobile carrier supports this type of message. MMS messages can support pictures, videos, audio recordings, and other multimedia attachments, and they’re generally much more convenient than SMS.
Sending group texts is a pretty standard feature on most mobile devices, and it’s a useful one to know how to use. Most phones have a built-in group texting app, or you can use an alternative app to send the group messages.
There are some differences between sending group texts on iPhone or iPad and on Android, but they’re easy to figure out and fix. For example, on Apple devices, group messages are sent as iMessages, while on Android they’re sent as SMS or MMS.
In order to send a group message on an iOS device, all you need is an iPhone and iMessage enabled, and all of your recipients need to have iMessage on their Apple device. This works because iMessage is a cellular communications protocol that uses end-to-end encryption to protect your messages.
The best part about using iMessage to send group texts is that it’s free. If you have an iPhone or an iPad, you’ll be able to send iMessages without paying a monthly fee.
You can create a contact group on an Android phone, too, which allows you to select certain people to text from the same place, avoiding having to remember who you’re chatting with each time. This can be especially helpful if you often want to send the same message to the same people, such as your boss or colleagues.
When you’re ready to send a group message, launch the Messages app and tap the New Message button in the bottom right corner of the screen. From there, you can enter the names of the people that you’d like to add in the “Enter Recipients” field. If you’re on an Android phone, you can tap the “+” icon to add people from your contacts list or use the “-” icon to remove someone.
Once you’ve added your contacts, write your message as usual and tap the Send button. You can even schedule your group messages to be delivered at a later date by long-pressing the “Send” button and selecting a time slot.
The easiest way to send group messages on an Android device is through the native Messages app, but there are some other apps that offer similar functionality. The Samsung Messages app, for example, is available on most Android devices and makes it simple to send group texts from your smartphone.
