Group chats are fun and helpful and let you stay in touch with your friend circle. You can share messages, stickers, and images with the group so that everyone can see. If all of your friends are on iMessage, you can easily create iMessage groups to chat with them at once.
In this article, we will cover how to make a group chat on iMessage using your iPhone.
How to Create A Group Text on iPhone iMessage
Unlike WhatsApp groups or Messenger Groups, there are no direct options to create a new group in iMessage. A new group is made when you text multiple people at a time and you can then customize the group. Find out how.
- Open iMessage on iPhone.
- Tap the new conversation icon on the upper right corner.
- Type and add the first person you want to add to the group in the “To:” field.
- Similarly, add more people you want in the group.
- Make sure the text field at the bottom says “iMessage” and the chat/contacts are in blue color (green means standard text message, not iMessage).
- Type a message and send it to create the group chat on the iPhone.
To create a group chat on iMessage, all the members should be on iMessage. You cannot add a non-iMessage contact to an iMessage group conversation.
