This is the same question that I have. On my S7, I could send a text to an entire group (the tennis team of which I am a captain) but it would send each as an individual text, so that when people responded they were only responding to me rather than indundating everyone in the group with the replies. I can't seem to figure out how to make that work on my S9+. It's very frustrating, as are some other aspects of the messaging app that I found better on the S7. Please help!
Only solution I've found is to just use Verizon's messaging app. This is what I used on my s7, but it's just frustrating that I can't use Samsung's messaging.
....and can we talk about the badge notification issue?! 🙄🙄🙄
When you finish with your message with all of your recipients in it, hit the 3 dots up top on the right and you will see the little image of two heads, if it's highlighted its a group text if its not its individual. You will toggle back and forth each time you text. You can also go I to the text settings and make it default to group or individual text.
Settings>more settings>multi media>Group conversations
I hope this helps. They changed a lot of things that just does not make sense.
Thank you for your help...I just purchased a S9 and as a Softball coach I group text a lot...My old S6 was great with group texting . The feature was simple and very easy to send out group or individual texts....now I'm considering returning my S9 because as much I love the new camera I must have the ability to group text....Its that important to me!
The little icon with the heads isn't there anymore. I can send a group message and get individual replies. The problem is that all recipients are getting all messages. How do I fix this?
OK found the solution as I was having the same one.
Go t Settings>>Apps>>Messanges click gear on top right corner then More settings>>Multimedia messages then set the options to on
