With iMessage there is a group chat feature similar to the feature in Whats App. But I can't find a way to add new people to an ongoing group chat.

Is this possible?

There seems to be no ability to add/edit the recipient of an iMessage/SMS text. You can select Edit and then Forward all or parts of an ongoing message to others, but there is no context (who said what). –  afragen Jan 14 '12 at 17:51

No. Its not possible, though its nice feature to add to in next version.

Does anyone know if this feature (add/remove to/from group text) will be in the next upgrade? –  tag56g Feb 8 at 23:51

You can, go create new message then where it says recipients (or to:) add as many people (On imessage) as you like.

That unfortunately only works for new group messages, not to extend existing ones (which is what the asker is looking for). –  patrix Jun 18 '13 at 18:41
