How do you create or access a group in Message Plus? The group shows in the cloud but it does not show in Message Plus on my Galaxy 5 when I am sending a message.

HI,

Group messaging to 'preset' groups (Family, Coworkers, etc., is not a capability of M+ at this time. We are building and testing this feature. The release date is not yet set.  Here are some GROUP TIPS:

CREATE A GROUP MSG:

  • Launch Messages
  • Add each group member to the TO field.
  • Compose message and send.

To set: REPLY TO ONLY ME:

Once you’ve selected the group of contacts you want to send a message to:

Tap on the header to select the group.

Now you will see Recipients reply to> Just Me/Group.

‘Just Me’ will enable responses to be sent only to You and not the entire group.

How to: REPLY TO 1 PERSON IN A GROUP:

To replay to ONE person in a group message:

  1. Tap the header where the group names appear

  OR, long press on the group message. 

  1. The individual names will be listed.
  2. Tap the text icon next to someone’s name.

Sgt4, I want to make sure we are on the same page. The Message + application and on the computer have some great features.  Are you trying to create a group like Family, Coworkers, etc.. within in Message +? Or do you have a group created but when sending the messages from your phone it shows individually? Please share the details.
