iOS 14 & Latest macOS introduced hundreds of features comprising minor changes and major updates. The native Messages App of iPhone and Mac got some bigger like Pinning up to 9 Conversations at once, a Special Mute feature for Group Chats, Inline Replies, Mentions, Typing Indicators, Enhanced Memojis, and more. Another noticeable change in Messages App is in Group Chats, till now Apple won’t let us Add Group Name and Photos to Messages on iPhone and Mac, just like WhatsApp, Facebook Groups, and other social media applications.
Previously, the Group Conversations only show the Contact Names, and Photos if you have assigned to their contact, so it’s kind of chaotic to find the group without any sort of identification. In some cases, we have the same contact in two different groups, what will you do, for that? Rather add name and photo on iMessage Group on iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur in iPhone, iPad, Mac respectively.
