How to Text a Group from an Android or iPhone


Sending group SMS is a great method to get your word out to a large number of people. Despite the fact that practically everyone you know now uses an instant messaging service, many people still prefer text messages because of their simplicity.

You’ve come to the correct location if you want to send group messages from your phone. How to send group text messages from an iPhone, Samsung, or any Android smartphone is covered in this article. So, let’s get this party started.


Sending group texts on iPhone is both easy and convenient with Apple’s Messages app. Read on to learn how.


Step 1: Open the Messages app on your iPhone. Tap on the Compose button in the top right corner to start a new conversation.

Note that if every recipient in your group is an iPhone user (with iMessage enabled), the messages will be sent as an iMessage and will be protected with its end-to-end encryption. Otherwise, the message will be sent as an MMS or SMS message.


Most Android phones will have Google Messages as the default messaging app. And if that’s the case, here’s how to send group text messages on Android.

Step 1: Launch the Messages app on your Android. Use the Start chat button to create a new conversation.


Step 2: Tap on the Create group option and select contacts you wish to add to your group text. Once done, tap on Next.

Step 3: Enter a suitable name for your group and tap on Next. Now that your group is created, type in your message as usual and hit the Send button.

Each recipient will get the SMS separately after it has been delivered. You’ll see the reply in their chat if the receiver answers to the text message.


Here’s how to change your group text discussion on Android if you want to rename it or add/remove people.

Step 1: Launch the Messages app and open up your group conversation. Now use the three-dot menu icon in the top right to choose Group details.

Step 2: To rename your group, tap on the pencil icon next to your group name. You can also add more contacts to your group by tapping on the Add people button.


That’s how you can use your Android to send group SMS. If you have a Samsung phone, however, you will have Samsung Messages as your default texting app. In the next section, we’ll teach you how to send group text messages with the Samsung Messages app.
