Group text with individual replies

For years I have been using the group text feature that allows for individual replies.  I am then able to communicate to a group of people with information I am sending out or a question I am asking, and then when they reply, the text only comes to me as I am the one who needs the response, not the entire group.  This prevents a group of 10-20 people from getting 10-20 responses that are actually quite annoying versus helpful.

With the option to switch to a group text with individual replies turned off, which I could choose to do on specific texts, we could collaborate when needed. 

It seems that I have now lost the first option...a group text with individual replies.  How do I get this back?

In the Google Messages app, tap on your profile picture in the search bar and then tap settings. Scroll to Advanced and you'll see the group messages options at the top. I believe your answer is there.

sorry for my delayed response.  I finally figured out the two different options...Google messages and Samsung messages.  It was Google messages giving me the problem. Once I got switched back to Samsung messages I now have my group messaging option again that allows me to receive individual replies when desired.  Thank you for your help in guiding me down the right path.
