Sending Group Messages - iOS

Read on to learn about sending group messages in the mobile MultiLine iOS application.  

Overview

You can send group messages by adding multiple participants to the To: list for your message. When users send group messages, all responses can be seen by all members of the group thread.

Before you start 

  • Currently, group messaging is only available to US and Canada users. If group messages are sent to users outside US and Canada, the users will receive individual messages with no grouping.
  • Maximum number of participants in a group is 11 including the sender.
  • Once you create a group conversation by sending a message, adding or removing participants will create a new group conversation.
  • Your organization must allow you to use group messaging for this feature to be available.
