How do I add people to an already existing group chat?

There are currently four people in the chat, three of the members are using an iPhone, and one is using a non-iPhone.

I am trying to add another person to the group chat, how do I do this?


I'm on iOS 10 Beta 7 (14A5345a) and while in the message if you tap on the "i" icon on top right you'll then have a button "+ Add Contact"

  • Sure thing, I would've captured a screenshot but since there are other people on there and I'm not sure on how to blur them out therefore I rather chose not to attach one – Pinchus G. Aug 22 '16 at 23:14
  • You can upload it to your computer and use MSPaint(Microsoft paint) to edit it out. I just upgraded to public beta 6 and it won't let me update to iOS 10 PB 7. I'm on iPhone 6 – TwentyCharMax Aug 22 '16 at 23:25
  • I know but I'm not gonna get to a computer before tomorrow – Pinchus G. Aug 22 '16 at 23:25
  • Ok, look at the photo I added In my edit – TwentyCharMax Aug 22 '16 at 23:31

You cannot add people to a group message if one or more of the people does not have an iPhone. You also cannot add people to an already existing iMessage group chat if they do not have an iPhone. In this case, one of the people that was in the group chat doesn't have an iPhone. (You can tell because it doesn't have a FaceTime option next to the call and message button.)
