Group texting on Android messages

I have a Google Pixel 2 on the my choice plan. I just try to send a group text to more than 10 people. when I tried to add more than 10 it stopped me and said that the group maximum was reached. Is there a work around to send a text to more than 10? I’m a scoutmaster trying to send a group text to my scouts. I was using the anywhere app previously and didn’t have any problems. Is this specific to Android messages?

TIA
Brad

Yes, see document from Republic Help

Thanks. That is disappointing…

You may find an alternative messaging system that provides more, but have no experience with any and not sure how Republic would work with them.
One that I found in another forum where the same question was asked/answered is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.groupme.android&hl=en

This is a very common limit. Samsung phones have the same limit. All users on AT&T have the same limit. Etc, etc. MMS was never designed to be a large group communication method. For such uses a data based application is going to be a much better bet.

My granddaughters softball team uses GroupMe https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.groupme.android to keep everyone notified.
I was added so the group to know about schedule changes if I was responsible for her that day. I never downloaded the app myself and was still able to receive and send SMS.

Thanks everyone. I downloaded Groupme last night and will give that a try to see if that will work.
