Send message (SMS/MMS) to group

Sending a group message from the Xiaomi smartphone can be done in several ways. We can do this either through the Messages app or through the Contacts app. It doesn't differentiate between SMS and MMS, but automatically selects whether it is a multimedia message when files such as pictures are attached. Once the recipient group has been determined, all the contacts in it are automatically selected for sending, but can be deselected individually.

Note: In this guide we will send a message using the Contacts app.

Send SMS message

Messages are generally no longer divided between SMS or MMS. If a file such as a photo/image is attached to the message, it gets automatically converted in an MMS.
Messages sent and received are organized into conversations and clearly stored on the xiaomi device. After sending a message, a so-called conversation is started and the content is stored in detail.
