Do you sometimes receive texts in your iOS Messages App where you are among one or more others in a group of recipients? Have you wondered how to create such a group to make it faster and easier to share messages with your friends and family? Pete will show you how to do just that.
- Open the Messages app. Flick to the right until you reach the compose button. Perform a single-finger double-tap.
- Type or dictate each of the names of group recipients in your text field, paying attention to iOS suggestions from your contacts list.
- When done filling in all the names in the group, flick to your right and type or dictate your first text message on the “message, text field“ line.
- If this is a group that you expect to contact often, check out our Quick Byte episode on Pinning Recipients in the iOS Messages App.
You can name the group with its own unique name. Pete chose to name this new group “Three Stooges”. Here is the process of naming a messages group:
- Single-finger double tap on the button that says: “change name of group”
- Type in the new name in the text field provided.
- Follow the prompts and you’re done.
You can also add a photo and/or an emoji to enhance the appearance of the new group as well. Just follow the step by step instructions and you’re done. However, this is not necessary if you just want to name the group.
