PSA: You can’t remove people from a group chat or leave it if it’s only 3 people
So, funny thing, I was about to send an iMessage to a Grindr hookup using Messages on macOS, so I clicked the “New Message” button to get back to my conversation with him. After typing his name, I accidentally added my dad too (I’m not out to my family) by just typing “d” then “enter”.
I panicked and tried to remove my dad from the convo, and it was simply IMPOSSIBLE. After a quick research, I discovered that you simply can’t do that in a 3-person convo. I had to add my sister so that it is a 4-person convo, to delete my dad, then again my had to add my brother to delete the Grindr guy. Also, you can’t leave the group chat yourself.
After replacing dad and Grindr guy with my brother and sister, I deleted the conversation. Apparently my sister never received anything so I hope the convo was deleted from everybody’s phone (I doubt it tbh).
Anyway I am furious and scared, and I don’t understand how it can be. I mean, is it a bug or a feature? If it’s a feature, then it’s a really stupid one.
