I also experienced an issue that started today (Jan 4 2023). I have a Pixel6 and the group chat I was in (using the default Messages app) no longer works. I can make calls and send SMS text messages to individuals, but I cannot send MMS text messages to groups , nor can I send images to anybody.
I have tried:
- Restarting the phone 3 times
- Powering off the phone twice
- Resetting the network settings
- Using FaceBook Messaging as my default messages app
- Creating new groups
- Sending to different people
- Deleting ALL of my messages and clearing the data and cache for the Messaging app
I am on a Verizon support chat now, but the rep has been AFK for almost 30 min now talking with the Support Team.
I suspect that we will have to wait for a system update from Google to get this fixed.
