How to use broadcast lists

Use the broadcast list feature to send a message to several of your contacts at once. Broadcast lists are saved lists of contacts that you can repeatedly send messages to without having to select them each time.
Note: Broadcast lists are not supported on Windows, Mac, or Web.
Broadcast message requirements:

  • Make sure all contacts in the broadcast list have saved your number in their address book.
  • You can create as many broadcast lists as you like.
  • You can include up to 256 contacts in each broadcast list.

Recipients receive a message from your broadcast list as an individual message from you in their Chats tab. Their reply will also appear as a normal message and won’t be sent to other contacts in the broadcast list.
  • Only people who’ve added you to their phone's contacts will receive your broadcast message.
  • If someone isn’t receiving your broadcast messages, ask them to add you to their contacts.
  • Broadcast lists are a one-to-many communication. If you want your recipients to participate in a group conversation, create a group chat instead.
