As a setting of the group? I found a very similar question already asked and the answer indicated that it was an option that could be set. But try as I might, I could not find such a setting in the options.
If someone replies with an answer, can you please include a screenshot of where the option is?
Great question! Although group messaging is smooth and easy using Verizon's Messages + app, there is not an option available to have replies go only to the message sender by default. I apologize. However, there is an option to "Mute" a group conversation if needed. This link will provide additional information about this option at: https://vz.to/2G8r6yG. Once you've accessed the website please scroll down to the link titled "Mute a Group Conversation." I hope this information is helpful. - RobertC_VZW
