How Do I Manage Group Texts on Android?
Whether you’re trying to wrangle a group of friends planning a night out or keeping tabs on colleagues working on a project, group texts can be helpful. But they can also be downright annoying, especially if you’re constantly getting notifications for messages you don’t care about. If that sounds familiar, here’s how to manage group texts on Android so you only see the ones you want.
If you’re not interested in a particular conversation, the first thing you can do is mute it. This will stop notifications from coming through for that thread, but you’ll still be able to see the messages if you open up the thread itself. To mute a group text, open it up and tap on the three dots in the top right corner.
From there, select ‘Mute’ and choose how long you want to mute the thread for – options include eight hours, one week or one year. You can also leave a group text entirely if it’s no longer relevant to you. Again, open up the thread and tap on the three dots in the top right corner.
But this time, select ‘Exit Group’. You’ll be prompted to confirm your decision – once you do, you’ll be removed from the group and won’t receive any more notifications (or messages) from that particular thread. Finally, if there’s a certain someone in a group text who is particularly chatty (and maybe even borderline annoying), you can always block them without having to leave the entire conversation.
To do this, open up their individual message within the thread and tap on the three dots in the top right corner again (I know, I know). Select ‘Block’ from the drop-down menu and then confirm your decision when prompted. Once that’s done, that person will no longer be able to contact you via that specific group chat (though they will still show up as part of the conversation itself).
And there you have it – those are all of your options for managing pesky group texts on Android!
