    Am I missing something? In a group message, is there anyway to get rid of of the banner and check mark about the keyboard that says "Group conversation"? This is annoying.

    It's very annoying! I have not found a way to disable that message. I have switched to Textra but it would be nice to disable that message. It drove me nuts.

    Another annoying thing: It saying "Group messages will eb sent as multimedia messages" EVERY TIME you open a group conversation.

    I used Textra on my G4 and may go back to it. Haven't decided yet.

    Go into the setting of the app and turn off group conversations. Settings- more settings- multimedia messages- group conversation.

    ??? But then don't you lose the ability to have a group conversation?

    Yes. If you turn it off, it will send a message to each person in your group individually. You will get responses back individually as well. If you keep the group conversations on and uncheck the box at the text level, the message will be sent to the one person.

    I understand how it works. I just thought it sounded like a throwing out the baby with the bathwater solution is all. I don't think the only way to get rid of annoying banner is by turning the feature off to be an optimal solution.

    I ended up switching to Textra. I couldn't take it anymore.
