When you want to add a contact to a group text on your mobile phone, there are some steps you can take to make the process go more smoothly. You can avoid having to type the same message for a number of different people, and you can also prevent new message alerts from appearing when you aren’t looking.
Remove a person from a group
If you are a group chat user and you have a group message with a contact that you don’t want in it, you can easily remove that person from your list. However, the steps are different depending on the messaging app you are using.
If you are using iMessage, you can remove a contact from a group message by going to the home screen and launching iMessage. When iMessage opens, you’ll see an icon. Simply tap the icon and the text will appear. From there, you’ll need to swipe left over the name you wish to remove from the list. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be taken to a page that will show you a list of the people in the group.
If you aren’t an iMessage user, you may be able to delete a person from a group text message if they are using SMS, WhatsApp, or any other internet-based messaging service. To do so, you’ll need to make sure all the members in the group are using iMessage and you have access to an internet connection.
If you are an Android user, you can also delete a contact from a group text. To do so, you’ll need a native messaging app and a way to launch it. When the app launches, you’ll see a navigation bar with a kebab menu. Just press the kebab menu icon and you’ll be taken to a page where you can add and remove people.
If you have an iPhone, you can remove a contact from iMessage by clicking the “info” button. Once you do, you’ll be taken to a dialogue box. In the first option, you’ll need to type in the contact’s name. Then, you’ll need to tap the “Done” button. After you’ve successfully removed the contact, the checkmark will disappear. If you’re not sure which contact you’re trying to remove, you can check the list of contacts on the phone.
If you’re an Android user, you can remove a person from a group text by launching a native messaging app. Once you’ve done that, you’ll see a kebab menu. Just press it and you’ll be taken to a menu.
Avoid the hassle of sending the same message to different people
There is more to texting than the ubiquitous blue or green dot on your handset. There are numerous reasons to use text to communicate, from business meetings to road trips to the bedroom. For a select few, the act of texting a friend or loved one can be the sexiest ritual of all time, even if your mate is a little more conservative in nature. Fortunately, there are many options available to ensure that texting and sex don’t become an issue. With the advent of mobile social media, it has never been easier to connect and chat with the people who matter most. Having said that, you still have to choose from among the many mobile phone carriers to make sure that you get the best service and best deal.
Speed up the process
The iPhone may be the queen of the mobile phone crown, but there’s no denying the fact that the latest and greatest of the mobile computing ilk has to be put to good use. Luckily, there are plenty of apps to help you blaze the trail. From the latest Android clones to the newest iOS offerings, you’ll have no shortage of mates and foes to help you along the way. Best of all, you don’t have to be an IT wizard to get in on the action. Whether you’re an old hand or an aspiring techie, you’ll be able to slay the competition like a seasoned pros in no time. The biggest challenge is figuring out where to start, and who to trust. In the end, you’re sure to be an aficionado by the time you’ve finished your gin and tonic. To top it off, you’ll have plenty of time to do a bit of window shopping as well.
Turn off notifications if you are getting too many new message alerts
If you’re getting too many notifications for each new message from a group text, there are a few things you can do. One option is to set up the group text in a way that will block the notifications. Another option is to turn off notifications completely. However, you’ll still receive new texts from your group members. You can also mute them.
If you have an Android device, you can set up the messages app to mute notifications. You can also change the delivery frequency for individual notifications. In iOS, you can use Do Not Disturb to block notifications during certain times. You can also change the focus modes for certain apps. Then, you’ll know when to receive notifications and when to ignore them.
To turn off notifications from an app, go to Settings. Then, scroll down to Notifications and toggle the switch. Alternatively, you can change the notification settings in the Control Center.
To turn off notifications in the Messages app, you can swipe left on a conversation in the sidebar. Or, you can control-click on the contact’s icon. Then, you’ll see an icon for the type of notifications you’re receiving. You can then swipe up to open the App Switcher.
If you have an iPhone, you can leave the group text entirely. To do so, you can simply press the DND symbol. You may need to confirm that the group message is still active before you can leave. You can also check to see if the DND symbol is purple. If it’s not, you can tap it and turn off the notifications.
If you’re an Android user, you can use your stock messages app to leave a group text. Then, you’ll need to create a new group. Once you’ve done that, you can add the contacts to the group. When you do, you can choose whether to block or mute notifications.
When you’re using the Messages app, you can also mute the notifications for the entire group. If you do, you’ll get the same muted conversations, but you’ll only hear the tone of your phone for your own texts. And, you can still read the texts you’re interested in at your leisure.
