Create a group chat on iPhone

Group chat is really necessary if you want to communicate with your friends all at once, send the same message to several people at once or talk to your family. It’s fast and quite simple. Group texting is a feature of iMessage, just like on WhatsApp and Instagram. By creating iPhone contact groups, you can quickly message a number of recipients. On iMessages, it is very easy to keep up to date with the group discussion. You can add interesting new features to your chat, such as changing the group name, adding photos, replying directly to messages, mentioning people in it and many others.
