    Where you type the first persons name. click there again and type another name, they will all separate with commas. not sure the cut off (if there is one) on how many recipients can be added

    basically and no unfortunately the process isn't streamlined with groups or just checking off contacts for the to block.

    Third party messaging apps like handcent have a feature that allows multiple recipients..

    Just create a new message and press the "+" icon..your contacts appear with check boxes next to them..

    For group SMS: set up a group on your google contacts (gmail on your PC) - then use a third party messaging replacement (I recommend handcent)

    ln Handcent: in the "to" field press the "+" button and then you'll see a tab for groups.

    Begin typing a name at To:
    A box will appear underneath with a suggestion for completing what you type.
    You can drag this box down and select a contact.
    After the contact fills in on the To line there will be a >,
    Tap after the >,
    Begin typing a name......
    (follow steps above)
    I do not know if there is a limit, but I've sent up to 9 individuals this way.

    Nexus 5x under Nougat:
    Start Messenger
    Hit + for new message
    You get a To: line
    Hit All Contacts. It may give you a keyboard but swiping above the keyboard should get rid of that so you can see the entire list.
    Find the first one you want and tap Mobile at the right
    If it sends you to the typing screen, hit X.
    It should take you back to your contacts;
    Repeat until all your Tos are on the line.
    Click the checkmark
    Now type your message and send. It will probably get marked MMS.

    I have been trying to get a group defined on Gmail's Contacts (not in Contacts on my Nexus 5) to show up IN Gmail on my Nexus 5 under Nougat, no luck whatsoever. But at least I can do ad hoc multi messaging now.

    I have fat fingers so it took me a while to learn to do this reliably.
