What is the group text limit on Android phones?
This varies. Some devices let you send the same message to 100 people at once, and some only allow 20 participants at a time. You can only check this while trying to send a message to a group.
But don’t worry, there are a lot of methods to send messages in bulk with no limit with some third-party applications, and we will mention those applications at the end of the article.
How to send a group message on Android?
Here is how you can toggle into group messaging on Android.
- Got to Android Messages.
- Press Menu.
- Select Settings.
- Select Advanced.
- Select Group Messaging.
Then, type the message that you want to send, add the contacts of the recipients, and simply click send. The messages will be sent automatically, one after the other, and everyone on the recipients’ list will receive the message. That is all, and did you ever know that it was so simple?
Why does group messaging not work on Android?
Usually, the Android group messaging does not work due to glitches. The main reason that I have identified with my experience is that I have not updated software to the latest versions. So once I updated and restarted the device, I was able to send the messages again.
But the following are some of the other fixes that you can try when the group texting is not working on your phone.
Restart the device.
In many cases, a simple restart will be very beneficial and it will work in this too. Just keep pressing the power button for a while and select restart. Then the device will restart and the problem should have to be fixed.
Enable group messaging.
Sem times the group MMS may be disabled on your phone, and in this case, enable it by following the below steps.
- Launch the messaging app.
- On the three dots, click.
- Open Settings next.
- Move to Advanced by scrolling down.
- Then select Group Messaging.
- Select Send an MMS reply to everyone (group MMS).
Those two tricks will definitely work for you and if not, try reducing the number of recipients that you’ve added to the group and try sending it again.
Why are my group chat messages sent individually on Android?
There is nothing wrong with it because normal text messages will be sent automatically one by one. But the message will be saved on your phone as a group message.
What if nothing works?
There is nothing to worry about when nothing works because you have a lot of options to send group messages unlimitedly with no extra cost. Some of those applications are WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger Botim, telegram, and so on.
So all you need is to add the contacts to your phone, create a group by adding the relevant contacts, compose the message, and tap send.
The messages will be delivered with no issues when they’ve turned on their connection. But there is still a thing to consider in this method because the recipients should also have to install and set up the application that you’re using, and if not they will not receive your messages.
Some related FAQs.
Long-press any of the message bubbles for the sender in a group message when the message thread is open. The lowest option on the pop-up menu is “Reply to Sender”; choosing it will start a thread addressed ONLY to the message’s sender.
Visit the group discussion. Select More > Group Details. Enter the new name after tapping the group’s name. Tap OK.
Why am I getting individual responses to a group text?
Go to the settings of your messaging app, open it, and look for a group messaging option. Make sure MMS (group messaging) is selected rather than individual SMS. Additionally, if you see notifications with the instructions “Tap to Download,” there most likely is a mobile data issue.
