Google Pixel 2 XL running Android 9/Pie and using stock Android Messages app for texting. I used to be able to add multiple people to a text without problem. Now, however, it always wants me to create a Group name for the multiple recipients. Even if there are just a couple of recipients. Here’s what I am doing.
I click “Start Chat”. I then type the first recipient into the “To” line. I then click the icon of multiple people with a plus sign in front of it to add another recipient. I then click the blue check-mark at the bottom of the screen to indicate that I am finished adding recipients and I am immediately taken to a “Name this MMS group” screen.
I don’t want to create a named group. I just want to send the text to multiple recipients. Where am I going wrong?
