As an Android user, it can be frustrating when all of your friends are using iMessage and you’re missing out on group chats. However, there is a way to add your Android device to an iMessage group chat. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to do just that.
Step 1: Install the GroupMe App
The first step to adding your Android device to an iMessage group chat is to download and install the GroupMe app. GroupMe is a group messaging app that works across all platforms, including iOS and Android. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the app, sign up for an account and create a new group chat.
Step 2: Invite iMessage Users to the Group Chat
Once you’ve created your group chat in GroupMe, you’ll need to invite the iMessage users to the chat. To do this, simply click on the “Add Members” button in the top right-hand corner of the chat and enter the phone numbers or email addresses of the iMessage users. They will receive an invitation to join the chat via text message or email.
Step 3: iMessage Users Join the Group Chat
Once the iMessage users have received their invitations to the GroupMe chat, they’ll need to download the GroupMe app and sign up for an account. Once they’ve done this, they can join the chat by clicking on the link in the invitation.
Step 4: Start Messaging!
Once everyone has joined the GroupMe chat, you can start messaging just like you would in an iMessage group chat. The only difference is that you’ll be using the GroupMe app instead of iMessage.
