I recently purchased the S9+ and was trying to send a group text message and the only way to send the message was to go into the contacts and select each contact individually (they got rid of the select all option). There is no way to select the group from the text message app. Also they got rid of the ability to leave a signature on your text messages. Can anyone help?

Any way to name the group so that it is visible to iPhone users as well?

You can create a keyboard short cut to add signatures more conveniently.  The group messaging feature for individual recipients has been removed.  Though break for all of us who hate receiving everyone's replys.

Open contacts. Scroll down to groups, choose group, use 3 dots to send message, select up to 20, select done and Samsung messages should open with your group's individual names listed in a new text.  If you want to send as individual texts, select 3 dots. Click icon of two people to change.

I was able to set up a group text by going into my contacts. Just under the favorites is "groups", once accessed, the menu has an option for sending a message where you can then select.  Still, not as convenient as it was; hopefully this is addressed soon.

To send group text message you have to speak to the phone; hit the last button on the left side of phone and say "send group message".

 

A screen will pop up for you to create a message and give it a name:  but you don't want to send individual so you have to hit "cancel" and all your groups will appear. Then you can create the message.

Go to contacts and look for groups under g. After selecting the group. Select three buttons on top right and chose send message. Its worse then previous phones like s8  but still doable.
