There are various ways to have a group chat from Samsung Galaxy phones. However, the group chat on Samsung Messages is different than what you find on instant messaging apps like WhatsApp. Consider it similar to broadcasting a message. Don’t get confused. We have covered the basics in the first section below.

Let’s check out three ways to make group text on the Samsung Messages app.

Important Things to Know About Group Chat on Samsung Phones

Before we go into the methods, you need to be aware of certain important things while messaging using the Samsung Messages app.

  • The group texts are only for sending texts. Meaning, if anyone replies to the message that you sent in a group, the reply will be shown in the chat thread of that contact on your phone and not in the group message.
  • The reply to the group message will go to the sender only and not to all group members.
  • The recipients of the group message will only see your contact when they receive a group message, i.e., they will not see other contacts in your group. For them, the message will appear as a normal message and not a group message.
  • You can add only up to 20 participants in the Samsung Messages app.

Let’s jump to the methods now.

Method 1: Create Group Chat by Adding Contacts in Messages App

One of the easiest ways to text multiple contacts is from the Samsung Messages app itself. Here’s how to go about it.
