However, there are some things you ought to know about adding someone to a group text on iOS 11. Firstly, you have to be on the iOS 11 or above before trying this Feature. Furthermore, you can’t add a third person to a two people conversation. In order to be able to add someone to a conversation, it has to be a group chat from when you Created the group. This way you can add people.
The limit for the Group text varies depending on the carrier you are on. So you might want to contact your carrier to know how many you are allowed to add.

This is obviously because they don’t have the iMessage app. However, you can add those using other iOS devices; iPad, iPod Touch and Macbook.
