So I have group chats with family members who most if not all have iphones and alot of texts have to download and pics and videos come in super blurry and small. My biggest annoyance is the fact that some texts have to download separately. Why is this?, is there a way to fix it? Super annoying. Don't know if it's an issue in general or just with apple users in convos. I use the Samsung messenger app by the way. If anyone knows how to fix this let me know please thanks!!

Nope ... no issues with iPhone users and non-iphone users

Many folks don't know this ... you can switch back-n-forth from texting apps and they'll import all your text messages and group chats. If you're nutty about it, you can use one chat app today, and use another tomorrow, then switch back the next day, ad nauseam ... all chats will show up

Don't forget to enable RCS

I have the same issue with my group chats with my iPhone family members. I had to 'reset my network settings' and clean out some of my old text messages. I hope this will help.
