Group text messages can be convenient for keeping in touch with multiple people at once, but sometimes you may find yourself in a group text that you no longer want to be a part of. If you’re an Android user, removing yourself from a group text is a relatively simple process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to remove yourself from a group text on Android.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

The first step is to open your messaging app on your Android device. This can vary depending on the device and the messaging app you are using. Typically, you can find the messaging app icon on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Find the Group Text

Once you have opened the messaging app, locate the group text conversation that you want to remove yourself from. Group texts usually have multiple participants and display the names or phone numbers of those participants.


If your messaging app supports different types of conversations, such as SMS and MMS, make sure you are selecting the correct type of conversation. Group texts are usually MMS conversations.

Step 3: Open Group Settings

To remove yourself from the group text, open the settings for that specific conversation. The way to access these settings may differ depending on your messaging app. Look for an option like “Group Settings” or “Conversation Settings” when viewing the group text.

Step 4: Leave or Delete Conversation

Once you have accessed the group settings, look for an option to “Leave” or “Delete” the conversation. This option may be displayed as a button or within a menu.

  • If you see the “Leave” option, tap on it to remove yourself from the group text.

    You will no longer receive messages from that conversation.

  • If you see the “Delete” option, tapping on it will delete the entire conversation, removing it from your messaging app completely. This will also remove you from the group text.


Be aware that once you leave or delete a group text, you will not be able to rejoin or retrieve any messages that were sent in that conversation before you left.

Step 5: Confirm Removal

After tapping on the “Leave” or “Delete” option, a confirmation prompt may appear asking if you are sure about removing yourself from the group text. Read the prompt carefully and select “Yes” or “OK” to confirm your decision.

Step 6: Verify Removal

To make sure you have successfully removed yourself from the group text, check your messaging app’s main screen or conversation list. The group text should no longer be present, indicating that you have successfully left or deleted it.

You’re done! You have now successfully removed yourself from a group text on your Android device.

Remember that this process may vary slightly depending on your specific device and messaging app. If at any point you want to rejoin a group text, someone from within the group will need to add you back in.

We hope this tutorial has helped you in removing yourself from unwanted group texts. Enjoy a clutter-free messaging experience!
