While you probably spend most of your time in the Messages app sending texts to one person at a time, you can also set up group messages, in which you chat with multiple people at once. 

There are two ways to make a group chat on the Samsung Galaxy S10: You can add recipients in the Messages app when sending a message, or you can create a group in the Contacts app and send messages to all the members with just a tap.

Here’s how to do it.
