Re: Group texts from iPhones
The stock messaging app doesn't always make it clear who else is in the group just by looking (though if you tap the menu control on the top right, there is a menu "show participants", that will list all of the people in the group.) Hangouts has the same deal, though if you hold the phone landscape, it's easier to see who else is in the group.

In the stock messaging app, you have to go into settings and make sure that "group messaging" is turned on under "Multimedia (MMS) Messages". I believe that it is by default. (Well, there is a similar setting in Hangouts under settings->SMS.) You can choose the default texting app in settings->more (under Wireless & networks)->Default SMS app.
