How do I remove a recipient from a group text?

  I use the default app, Verizon Messaging Plus.  Can't figure out a way to remove a recipient when I reply to a group message.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S6.

You don't delete, but you can selectively reply to only one person in the group message - just long press one of the bubbles from the person you want to talk to, and the menu that pops up will have an option to "Reply to sender" - your reply will only go to that one person. 

I haven't found a way to add someone to a group once it's set up. You can choose one of the messages in the conversation and forward it to someone, again by long pressing the message and choosing "forward" from the options.  I'm not sure if the recipient would see everyone in the group, and therefore be able to respond to the group ... never tried it.

JACKMAN10,

Let's put a stop to sending out messages that aren't needed. Is the group saved under contacts? How was the thread started?

The message starts when a friend (A) sends a text to me and to another friend (B), with each added individually from the contacts list (not from a group).  I see the text with both friends A and B list at the top of the screen.  I'd like to know how to reply only to friend A (by deleting friend B from the top).  Yes, I know I could just start a new text just to friend A rather than deleting B, but there should be a way to do a delete.  BTW,  I'd also like to know how to reply to A and B but also add friend C to the text.

HI THERE,

Currently, there is no way to delete a contact from an existing group message.  We are working on updated features which will become available to you in the near future.

Thanks for your patience!

THANKS,

THANK YOU!!!!  It is irritating- someone has spammed 19 of us within the past 2 hours!  The path I have taken is when people respond, choose "Report Spam".   Unfortunately, there are only a few responded asking does anyone know who is in the group to request to stop/ remove.   I would like ot see a block feature- specific, unidentifiable numbers or all in the thread-- it should be with the cost we are paying for phone and the service.
