Are you part of a group chat on iMessage, but don’t want to be anymore? Tired of receiving tons of notifications because so many people are talking at once? We hear you. In this tutorial, we’ll be showing you how to leave a group iMessage.
Tap Messages to access all your SMS text and iMessage conversations.
In your list of conversations, find the group chat you’d like to leave. When you find it, tap it once to open it.
On the group chat window, tap the "i" button at the top right to access details and settings for the group message.
Once you tap Leave This Conversation, you won’t be part of the conversation anymore and will no longer receive any of the messages sent in that conversation if the other participants continue the chat.
Those are all the steps to leaving a group chat. If you simply want to avoid getting so many notifications all the time, but don’t want to completely leave the group chat, here’s how you can do so.
Tap Messages on your home screen to open your messaging app.
In your list of conversations, locate the group chat you want to mute. When you find it, tap it once to open it.
In the top right corner of the group message screen, tap the "i" button to access details and settings for your group chat.
Move the switch to the right to mute notifications. You can come back and un-mute notifications for this conversation at any time.
