Group texts can be a convenient way to communicate with multiple people at once on your iPhone. Whether you want to plan an event, share updates, or simply keep in touch with a group of friends or colleagues, adding someone to a group text is easy. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to add someone to a group text on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, locate and tap on the Messages app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Messages app is represented by a green chat bubble icon.

Step 2: Select the Group Text Conversation

Once you have opened the Messages app, find and select the group text conversation that you want to add someone to. Group conversations are typically labeled with the names or phone numbers of the participants.

Step 3: Tap on the Info Button

In the top right corner of the screen, you will see an “i” button enclosed in a circle. Tap on this button to access additional information about the group conversation.

Step 4: Choose “Add Contact”

In the Group Details screen, scroll down until you see a section labeled “Participants.” Within this section, tap on “Add Contact” to add someone new to the group text.

Step 5: Select a Contact

Your iPhone will now display your contact list. Scroll through your contacts and select the person you want to add to the group text conversation. You can also use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly find a specific contact.

Step 6: Confirm Your Selection

After selecting a contact, your iPhone will display a confirmation screen. This screen will show you the contact’s name and phone number. If everything looks correct, tap on “Done” in the top right corner of the screen to add the contact to the group text.

Step 7: Send a Welcome Message (Optional)

Once you have added someone to the group text, you may want to send them a welcome message to let them know they have been added. Simply type your message in the text input field at the bottom of the screen, then tap on the send button (the blue arrow) to send your message.


You have successfully added someone to a group text on your iPhone. They will now be able to see all previous messages in the conversation and receive any new messages sent by other participants.

Remember, only participants who are using iPhones and have iMessage enabled will be able to be added to your group text conversations. Enjoy staying connected with your friends, family, or colleagues!
