How to name group text on iPhone?

In this article we are going to learn “how to name group text on iPhone?” Group chat is a way to let more than two people communicate with each other at the same time. Group chat is used in many ways for like a group chat of colleagues sharing vital information with each others, a family group chat to keep that family bond strong and staying in touch or a group chat of friends for doing all that stupid conversation (nostalgic, brought back so many memories) Group chats are fun and useful, depending on what you do with that group chat.

I used to be a part of a group chat. Me and my friends were using it to kill some time, making fun of each other (because that’s what friends do). Man… that group chat was so much fun that it is one of my favorite memories of my life (memory because that group chat is long dead).

How to Name Group Text On iPhone?

As I mentioned, group text can be used in many manners and a single person can be a part of many group chats/texts. So, a group chat should have an appropriate name, one should name it accordingly. A group name should reflect the group’s purpose. You should be able to get the idea of which group is which, so you don’t end up sending a message in a wrong chat. (You know, you can’t mess up in a group chat because there are so many people available to judge you in it. It feels so awkward when this happens)

Although the iPhone names a group chat on its own,  that name doesn’t do justice to the group because it just names the group on all group’s contact names. For example, if a group has five people named max, charlotte, hachiman, steve and ferb then it will name the group max, charlotte and hachiman…… 

Group iMessage, group MMS and group SMS are the three types of group messages available in IOS. lets understand them first :

Group iMessage : in this group chat every person possesses a device of the Apple brand, the iMessage option is switched on, all the text appears blue. In this group every iMessage feature is available like message effects, location sharing, group naming and multimedia attachments. In this group everyone has the authority to add any person or remove any person from the group.

Group SMS : in this group at least a single guy has kept both the MMS and iMessage on turned off. This guy can not send multimedia attachments and can see any of the responses in the group text. The guy can only send others and receive messages outside of the group. If there are more than one person in the group, who have turned off the features then this condition will apply to them too.

Group MMS : in this group chat so far as possible one member is not using iMessage or a device of Apple. The text is going to appear green. Although most of the iMessage features are not available in this group but everyone can see all the messages and send and receive the multimedia attachment in the group text.
