This feature is only available in a group message where all of the users are iOS users. You cannot name a group message if any of the users are non-iOS users, such as Android users.

Wrong answer. Up to iOS 10 it doesn’t matter what OS they are using. No combination of Apple and non-Apple will allow you to create a Group name on iOS 11. The details page for that list of IDs simply does not have the options of naming the group, deleting a member or adding a member.


Maybe Apple will fix this in one of there famous patches ?!?!? Probably not, I have a feeling it’s gone for good !!!!!

I never said that you could name a group message that had a combination of iOS and non-iOS devices. As a matter of fact, I said that you could not. If you have a group message with just iOS devices, you still have the ability to name a group message and also the ability to adding or removing a member. You can also remove yourself, if the message contains 3 or more members. I just tested it again on my iPhone X with iOS 11.2.2.

I don’t believe the new iOS system has the feature to name group messages.

That is not correct. The ability to name a group iMessage still exists. As mentioned earlier, it has to be a group iMessage, which is one that does not include any non-iOS devices. A combination message like that cannot be named.
