    Is there a way to send and most importantly, respond to a group SMS in Hangouts?
    I don't see any settings and it makes no sense that when someone sends me a group SMS, my response only goes to person who originated the message.
    I also don't see a way to send a group SMS.... There's an "Anyone else" option for Hangouts instant message but not SMS.

    Any suggestion greatly appreciated.

    Open Hangouts, tap Menu>Settings>SMS, and make sure Group Messaging is checked on.

    I have "Group messaging" checked already. I guess it may be a bug

    Are you sending using a Google Voice number? Group sending doesn't work for me when I am using GV, but if I switch to sending through my phone's actual number it works fine.

    Yep, GV for everything. I hope they fix it soon.... Hangouts is nearly perfect except a few annoying bugs:
    1. You still need to install GV app just to check a CheckBox to use GV number for outgoing calls.
    2. The issue in this thread.
