By | October 9, 2014

As there are many features in iOS 8, iMessage is one of the them. It is never ending up group messages with friends or family members and you want to stop this notification madness. There is a way to over come this. If you are not aware of how to leave the group iMessage thread on iOS 8 then this is the right place to know the clear information. Simply follow the steps below:

Steps to leave Group iMessage thread on iOS 8

  • Initially open message application on your iPhone or iPad which runs on iOS 8 and higher.
  • Now tap on the thread you would like to leave in order to open it.
  • In the top right corner of your screen tap on details.
  • In the details drop down list tap on leave this conversation.
  • That’s it.


You can only leave group messages if all the participants are using iMessage and running on iOS 8 and higher where Apple does have authorization to remove or block from the carrier messages and you can remove only iMessage threads from the end.

Leave this conversation will be grayed out like you see above if some is running an older version of iOS, if the bubbles are green you wont be able to remove yourself since those are the regular messages. Stay tune for more tips and tutorials.
