Message + vs Message Group texts

Four of the five on our Family Plan use stock Verizon Message. I'm on that Family Plan but use Message+. If a Family Plan member sends a Group Text, my REPLY arrives to them as an individual text from me - not a Group response. They think I've left the group to reply. What setting needs to be changed on my Message+ or their stock Message so my responses to group show up on their Android Verizon devices as a Group response?

MommaNonna, I definitely understand your concern. Group Messaging is essential nowadays. I certainly want to make sure you are able to use it. What do you mean by stock Verizon Message? What type of phone do you have? Is this issue only happening in that particular group text?
