How do i name people in a group chat?

 I have a group text with all of my friends. They all have different phones, and for some reason it doesn't show the contact names, just our numbers. Is there a way we can fix that? It's difficult to tell who is who.

Hey Emily, 

As long as you have the names in the contacts app, it should pull the information from the device.

If you are on the website sometimes it will not transfer the contact name from previous conversations.


We've sent you an email regarding this issue to gather more information to address your issue directly. 

Rest assured we are eager to resolve this for you.

Please reply to the email and we will gladly follow up.

Hi there,

As mentioned above, you will need to ensure that the names of the contacts in the group chat are all saved in your contacts app on the device you're using. If you are using the web browser to chat the names may not transfer from your app since since it's a separate device.

I've noticed this too, Are you on the web, desktop app, or phone app. I do see the names in my phone app, and I THINK they show up because they are in my contacts WHEN I created the group chat. but they don't show up on the website or desktop.
