It’s fun and easy to use group texts to stay in touch or communicate with multiple people at once. But you’ll probably like to see at a glance what a particular conversation is about, so it’s useful to name a group chat on iPhone for everyone’s convenience. This will help you keep better track of your group texts. It’ll also minimize the chances of anyone sending a wrong message to the wrong group! So let’s get organized and label group conversations with some simple steps.
How to Name a Group Text on iPhone
Please note that you can name a group chat in iOS 13 only in iMessages and not in group MMS messages. So all members of the group text need to be using an iPhone, or they should be signed into iMessages on an Apple device such as a Mac or iPad.
- Open the Messages app on your iPhone and tap on the paper and pencil icon to create a new message
- Start typing numbers of recipients in the field that starts with To:
- Once you select the first recipient, you can see a comma next to the name/number of the contact. Keep adding recipients there or by tapping the “+” icon.
- Type your first message and send it. Then, to name your group conversation, tap on the arrow (>)
- Next, tap the info icon.
- Tap on Enter a Group Name. If you can’t see the option, it’s because there are people in your group who are not using iMessages
- Type a name for the group chat and tap Done.
How to Rename an Old Group Chat on iPhone
If you want to name an already existing group chat or change a previously set name, it’s pretty easy.
- Open the group message and tap on the arrow (>) to the right of the group name
- Now, tap the info icon
- Tap on the existing group name.
- Tap on “X” to delete it, Now, type the new name you want to assign it and tap Done to finish.
