iOS 11/iOS 12/iOS 13: How To Add A Person To Group Message On iPhone And iPad

We talked earlier about how to  leave a group chat message on iOS 11//iOS 12/iOS13 on iPhone or iPad. However, we never discussed how to add a person to a group iMessage after it has been created on the iPhone or iPad.

The most recent version of iOS 11/iOS 12/iOS 13 for the iPhone or iPad lets people add a person to a group iMessage after it has been created without the need to start a whole new thread. This method will not work if the group chat is between only two people and third person would like to be added.

The following steps will assist you to learn how to add a person to a group iMessage without needing to make a new group chat. Keep in mind that this method will only work if everyone in the group chat is using iMessage and not a mix of iMessage and SMS. So if anyone is using an Android, they cannot be added to the group chat. A person will only be able to see the chat once they are added to it and the the chat prior to their invitation.
