Group chats are one of the coolest things you can experience on an iPhone or iPad, be it in iOS 10.3 or any other version of operating system. It might take some time until you become fully aware of all your options and learn how to use them. But once you do that, you’re going to love being a part of all kinds of group chats. Even when you stop enjoying a particular group, you will know
In today’s article, we’d like to show you how to add a person to group chat on iOS 10.3, so you can extend your circle and have more friends joining your favorite groups. Even if that person has already been using an iPhone or an iPad for quite some time, you can still add him or her to an iMessage group. Thanks to the latest operating system version, you can enter new persons into previously created threads. What you can’t do is to add a third person to a private conversation held only between two persons.
Also important, the method we are about to present you will only work for adding an iMessage user to a group of exclusively iMessage users. Mixed groups – iMessage and SMS users don’t support this feature.
Last but not least, even if you can add a new person to an existing group chat, that person won’t have access to the group’s conversation history prior to that moment. Neither the messages nor the shared files will be visible to them except, of course, for what will be written or attached from that moment on.
All these being said, let’s move on to the actual steps.
How to add a person to a group message chat on devices with iOS 10.3:
- Launch the Messages app;
- Tap on the group message where you want to add a new person;
- Look for the Details option from the beginning of the page;
- Tap on Details;
- Tap on Add Contact;
- Tap on the person that you want to add;
- Hit the Done button to save the changes.
That’s all for now. Go on, add new persons to your group message chat on iPhone or iPad in iOS 10.3. Staying connected has never been easier for Apple users.
