Question: Why is my Apple Watch splitting up group messages?

Recently, my Apple Watch Series 3 has been splitting up my group messages. Messages that I send are shown in the group thread, but replies are shown as separate messages from each contact. When all of the group is using iMessage there is no issue, however when it is a group where not everyone has iMessage it splits them up. This has not always been an issue, I just noticed it recently. My watch us updated to the latest version (watchOS 4.2.3). Does anyone have any solutions, or will I just have to wait for Apple to fix this in an update?

I am having the same issue, the group appears on the watch but only with my own replies. Other’s messages in the group appear as individual conversations. There seems to be some problem with the sync between the watch and phone as this does not happen on my phone.
