Group texts are a great way to keep everyone in the loop and have conversations with multiple people at once. If you’re an iPhone user, adding someone to a group text is a simple process. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to add someone to a group text on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To get started, unlock your iPhone and locate the Messages app on your home screen. It’s the green icon with a white speech bubble. Tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Create or Open a Group Text

If you already have an existing group text conversation that you want to add someone to, simply open it by tapping on it in your messages list. If you don’t have a group text yet or want to create a new one, tap on the “New Message” button at the top right corner of the screen.

Creating a New Group Text

To create a new group text, follow these steps:

  • Tap on the “New Message” button.
  • In the recipient field, enter the names or phone numbers of the contacts you want to add to the group text. You can also tap on the (+) icon next to each contact field and select contacts from your address book.
  • Once you’ve added all the desired contacts, tap on the “Create Group” button at the top right corner of your screen.

Opening an Existing Group Text

If you already have an existing group text conversation that you want to add someone to, follow these steps:

  • Tap on the existing group text conversation from your messages list.
  • Once the conversation is open, tap on the “Details” button at the top right corner of your screen. It looks like an ‘i’ inside a circle.

Step 3: Add a Contact to the Group Text

Now that you have either created a new group text or opened an existing one, it’s time to add a contact to the group. Follow these steps:

  • In the group text conversation details screen, scroll down until you see the “Add Contact” option.

    It will be located below the list of current participants in the group text.

  • Tap on “Add Contact. “
  • In the recipient field, enter the name or phone number of the contact you want to add to the group text. You can also tap on the (+) icon next to the contact field and select a contact from your address book.
  • Once you’ve entered or selected the desired contact, tap on the “Done” button at the top right corner of your screen.

Step 4: Enjoy Group Texting with Everyone!

Congratulations! You have successfully added someone to a group text on your iPhone. Now you can enjoy sharing messages, photos, and more with all participants in one conversation.

Remember that when someone is added to a group text, they will be able to see all previous messages in that conversation. If it’s a private discussion or contains sensitive information, make sure everyone in the group is aware before adding new members.

Group texts are an excellent way to stay connected and engage with multiple people simultaneously. With these simple steps, you can effortlessly add someone to a group text on your iPhone and enhance your messaging experience.
