How To Add A Person To Group Chat On iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

Earlier we explained how you can leave a group chat message on iOS 10 on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. But what about adding a person to group iMessage after it has already started on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus? The great thing about the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is that it allows users to add a person to the group iMessage once it has already started and not have to create a new thread. This method only works in group chat threads, and will not work if the conversation is between two people and a third wants to be added.



The following will help teach you how to add a person to a group iMessage without having to create a new message thread. It’s important to note that the following method only works if everyone in the group iMessage is on iMessage and not mixed between iMessage and SMS, thus anyone using an Android device can’t be added to the group chat. Also, once the person is added to the group message, they can only see messages from the point they have joined and can’t view anything that was shared before they joined the group.


How to add a person to person to group message chat on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus:

  1. Turn on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
  2. Open the Messages app.
  3. Select the group message that you want the person to be added to.
  4. At the top of the screen, select on “Details“.
  5. Then select on “Add Contact”.
  6. Select the person (s) that you want to add to the group message select “Done“.
