    Yes, stock sms app does not support group MMS. You can download other application if this feature is important to you.

    I've noticed that when I try to send a group text, it just sends individual messages to each person. There doesn't seem to be anything in the settings to enable group mms either.

    Is this just not a feature on the phone?

    Can you go into your messaging app
    >under MMS group messaging - send a single MMS to all recipients
    (NOT - Send individual SMS messages to all recipient. Only you will get any replies)

    I am having the same problem with my OP5. I do not see the advanced settings for the OP5 messaging app. The only mms setting options are Auto-retrieve and Roaming auto retrieve. Please help.

    I know that Android Messages works, but I want to use the stock messaging app. I am using dark theme and Android Messages doesn't support dark theme. Stock messaging app should be able to send group messages. Please fix the problem OP.

    Group texts seem like an easy and basic feature to have, hopefully they will fix this for the op5 asap.

    Please fix this asap, I frequently use group texts and not having it is a pain. Seems like a basic feature that should be included.

    Try Textra for a lot of customability. Black theme, gray theme, the shape and colours of the speech baloons, accent colours etc.

    glad to know I am not the only person with this issue.

    Also I noticed that the stock MMS app will not receive group messages sent to me by other people. I tested this by installing the Android messages app from the Play Store and that application was able to send and receive group texts.

    I'm also not getting any error messages. It just seems that the default behavior of the stock MMS app does not send or receive messages to group participants.
