Group Messaging Issues

I have a DROID MAXX i send to many group messages, it has become a big part communication on planning things out with my group of friends.

Since getting this phone group messaging hasn't worked.  I would send a message and iphone users would have no problem receiving it in a group, but it would appear as if i sent it to only one person on the other android phones.  I looked this issue up and it appeared to be related to this Hangouts crap that clearly isn't fixed.  Changed my messaging app from stock to 8sms, since switching now my messages appear in the group for everyone, however instead of receiving one message like a normal person they now all receive redundant messages from me.  So If i send "Hi" to a group they will see 2 messages from me both saying "Hi".

Please help as this is becoming very annoying.
