Types of group messages (for iMessage Conversations)
The three types of group messages that you might see are: group iMessage, group MMS, and group SMS. The Messages app automatically chooses the type of group message to send based on you and your recipients' settings, network connection, and carrier plan. For example:

If you and your recipients are using Apple devices and iMessage is turned on, then the group message is sent as an iMessage.



If you send a group message to people who aren't using iMessage, then the message is sent as an MMS or SMS message. See below…


Group iMessage

These messages appear in blue text bubbles, go through Apple instead of your carrier, and are protected by end-to-end encryption. In a group iMessage, everyone can:

Send and receive photos, videos, and audio messages

See all responses from the group

Send and receive message effects, like sketches, animations, bubble effects, and more

Share their location with the group

Give the group a name, add or remove people from the group, mute notifications, or leave the group



Group MMS

These messages appear in green text bubbles and go through your carrier instead of Apple. In a group MMS, everyone can:

Send and receive photos and videos

See all responses from the group

Mute notifications

Group SMS

These messages also appear in green text bubbles and go through your carrier. Group SMS messages don’t support multimedia attachments, like photos or videos. All responses in a Group SMS are sent as individual text messages and the recipients can’t see the other responses from the group.
