Who I have the same questioned this topic

Group MMS messages are downloading in batches every 10-20 minutes

I frequently have a problem where MMS messages sent to my phone on a group chat will get stuck. They'll be waiting to download for 10-20 minutes and then a bunch of messages will come through all at once, often out of order. I similarly cannot send messages to the group chat while incoming messages are waiting to download. My outgoing messages will only send when the incoming ones download. Weirdly, I can still send and receive messages to other contacts instantaneously, just not those in the group chat.

I have a Samsung Galaxy 6 running Android 7.0 and am using Google Messages as my default messaging app. This is happening on 4G in areas with good reception.

Someone suggested this problem may be caused by one of the group chat members using an Apple device, but that does not help solve my problem. Any advice would be appreciated.
