    Just got my Turbo last weekend and really liking it so far. However, the minimal android experience has me missing some things from my HTC One (M7).

    I have Groups setup in my Gmail Contacts. When I wanted to send a text to the group on my HTC One I went to Contacts, then to the Groups tab, and there was a option to either email or text the group. On the Turbo, when I go to People, then to the Groups tab, the only options I have are to edit or delete the group.

    Is there any way to text/email a Gmail Group?

    I have not found a way to do it natively. There is a third party app called "Gmail group share" that has worked for me.

    Thanks Hgouck.

    I installed the app and it works for sending Gmail to the groups, but won't let you text the group.

    I loaded Hangouts and created a Circle with 24 people in it, but I have not tried it yet. My Gmail groups were setup with a max of 10 recipients as that was the max I could send a text to over Verizon. Not sure if this Circle with 24 will work.

    Try installing Textra as a messaging app.

    That allows you to select groups to text to, and it is a much better messaging app to boot. Tap the plus to compose a message, tap the contact icon top right, next to the "X", and you can choose individual contacts or groups.
