Group Text reply only to sender

I am using the Verizon Message+ app. It's a great app. I have created a group text. I saw where I could have recipients only reply to sender button but now I can't find it. Can you please tell me how to setup a group text that recipient replies only come to the sender? Thank you.

Open the group text.  Press and release the bar at the top that shows the recipients, and you should see the option.

Making sure that your group text messages are functioning correctly is definitely important. When you attempt to send your group message you should see a toggle bar that will allow you to change the reply option from all to "Just Me". This will be the option you want to select in order to be able to set the replies to only go to the sender. Please give this a try, and let me know if this fixed the issue for you? AlfredoR_VZW

  • There used to be a toggle to switch back and forth to change the reply option from all to just me. But that option is no longer there. What happened? Will this option return?

Thank you for clarifying. Alternatively, if you long press a message within the thread, a menu will pop up. The option at the bottom of said menu will be "Reply to Sender." Please let us know if this works for you! MatthewI_VZW

No, I meant that if I send a group message, I want the replies to come to just me. There used to be a toggle that I could switch to have replies come to just me instead of in the group message thread, but that toggle has disappeared after a recent update.

I have the same problem and a "toggle switch" does not appear when I press on the group text recipients. Please give a more detailed answer. I use group texts frequently for family medical updates, and recipient's in general do not like recieving a slew of messages that are really not intended for them.

We want to make sure we are on the same page as you. You would like the replies from the other users in the group message, to come to you individually? CourtneyM_VZW
