How to use broadcast lists

You can use broadcast lists to send a message to several contacts at once.
Broadcast lists are saved lists of contacts that you can repeatedly message without having to select the contacts each time.
Note: Broadcast lists aren't supported on Windows, Mac, or Web.

Broadcast list 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.

Create a broadcast list

  1. Tap Settings > Broadcast Lists > New List.
  2. Search for or select the contacts you want to add.
  3. Tap the contact’s name > Create.
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.

Edit a broadcast list

  1. Tap Settings > Broadcast Lists.
  2. Tap the "i" icon next to the list you want to edit.
  3. In the List Info screen, you can:
    • Change the name of your broadcast list by tapping the existing broadcast list name or List name. Enter the new name of your broadcast list.
    • Add or remove recipients from the list by tapping Edit list... Tap the "x" in the contact’s profile picture > Done.

Delete a broadcast list

  1. Tap Settings > Broadcast Lists.
  2. Swipe left on the broadcast list you want to delete.
  3. Tap Delete.
