Creating a Group Chat on iPhone

Do you often find yourself needing to communicate with a group of people all at once? The Group Chat feature on your iPhone can be a lifesaver in such situations.

With just a few taps, you can create a chat group and start sharing messages, photos, and more with multiple contacts simultaneously. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the simple steps to create a Group Chat on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

Firstly, unlock your iPhone and locate the Messages app on your home screen. It is represented by a green speech bubble icon. Tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Start a New Message

In the Messages app, tap on the pencil and paper icon located in the top-right corner of the screen. This will allow you to start a new message.

Step 3: Add Contacts

To create a group chat, you need to add contacts who will be part of the conversation. Start typing the name of the first contact in the “To:” field.

As you type, suggestions should appear below. Select the contact from your list of suggestions by tapping on their name.

Note: You can add multiple contacts by repeating this step for each person you want to include in your group chat.

Step 4: Name Your Group

Once all desired contacts have been added, tap on the “i” (info) icon located in the top-right corner of your screen. This will open up additional options for your message thread.

In this menu, you can assign a name to your group chat by tapping on “Enter a Group Name.” Type in a suitable name that represents the purpose or participants of your chat group.

Step 5: Customize Group Settings

Below the group name section, you will find various options to customize your group chat. You can choose to enable or disable features like “Hide Alerts” to mute notifications for this particular chat group, “Share My Location” to let group members see your current location, or even add new participants by tapping on “Add Contact.”

Step 6: Start Chatting

Now that your group chat is set up and customized, it’s time to start chatting. Type your message in the text field at the bottom of the screen and tap on the blue arrow icon to send it.


  • You can add attachments such as photos, videos, or audio recordings by tapping on the camera or microphone icons respectively.
  • If you want to reply directly to a specific message within the group chat, simply tap and hold on that message until a menu appears. Then select “Reply.” This will help keep conversations organized.

In Conclusion

Creating a Group Chat on your iPhone is a straightforward process that allows you to communicate efficiently with multiple contacts simultaneously. By following these simple steps and utilizing the customizable options available, you can easily create and manage group chats tailored to your specific needs.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of creating a Group Chat on your iPhone. Happy chatting!
