how to get out of group conversations

Group conversations in the app Messages are really comfortable. At times when meeting is more complex, communicating with several people at once is more useful than ever, and on the other hand, when the reason for the conversation disappears, it’s good that we know how to get out of the groups or what to do when this is not an option.

How to get out of a group conversation

Getting out of a group conversation is easy, but there are some requirements. The first is that the conversation must have more than 3 participants , including us. The second is that the conversation must be an iMessage conversation and not an SMS conversation, since only the iMessage protocol has the capacity to properly manage groups, among other things. If we meet these two requirements, the steps are very simple.

On our iPhone or iPad

  1. We open the Messages app on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We enter into the conversation that we are interested in abandoning.
  3. We play their participants at the top.
  4. We hit the “i” for information.
  5. We chose to abandon conversation.
  6. We played Leave Conversation again to confirm.

On our Mac

  1. We opened the Messages app on our Mac.
  2. We enter into the conversation that we are interested in abandoning.
  3. We’re touching Details at the top right.
  4. We played Leave Conversation.

At this point, one might ask whether simply eliminating the conversation is enough to get out of it. The answer is no, in as soon as a message is sent back to the conversation it will reappear on our devices.

And if I cannot leave a conversation

As we have said before, in order to leave a group conversation, two requirements must be met: that the conversation be through iMessage and that there be more than three participants . Without these requirements the option to Leave conversation appears in grey or simply not at all. What happens then if we want to leave a conversation that we can’t get out of? Easy, we silence it.

We can mute any conversation , whether individual or group, whether in iMessage or via SMS. Let’s see the steps.

On our iPhone or iPad

  1. We opened the Messages app.
  2. We slide from right to left over the conversation.
  3. We chose to hide ads.

On our Mac

  1. We opened the Messages app.
  2. We right-click on the conversation.
  3. We play Do Not Disturb.

This way we will stop receiving notices from this group . If we need to receive them again, we just repeat the steps above to display the notices again.
