    Hey guys,

    Anyone use BBM group chats?

    I have a bunch of 3 or 4 way chats with family members, but I realized today that none of them are in the "group chats". I started just as a regular chat, but invited a bunch of people at the start.

    Are these supposed to be group chats? Am I missing something by not starting them in groups? Do any of you do small chats like this in groups?

    If you're referring to a chat where all can (or should) be able to see all comments, setting up a BBM group is a better way to go, IMHO. For instance, we have a group specifically for the immediate family. The, a separate one that includes extended family. Great for dealing with events, etc.

    So if I am having a 1 on 1 chat, and then invite another person to join, is that now considered a group chat? Should it get moved to "group chats"?

    And what are things you can do in group chat, but not the "invite more" way?

    I think a difference between group chats, and just inviting one more person to a private chat (so to speak) maybe the history of the group chat.

    That is, group chat history and pics etc are there for everyone who is a member to see. And if you invite a new member to a group chat then they will be able to see the entire history that pre dated their entry.

    Does a person you invite to a multi person chat see entire history?

    One of the drawbacks to a group chat is that you can't send vids.

    Whereas you can in person to person Bbm chats.

    Can you send vids in multi person chats?

    For past history, no you cannot see the past once you get invited.

    For vids, no you cannot send vids. Only photos and Dropbox links. Maybe you can do vids this way, but it's not the same.

    Anyone else use BBM group chats?

    I'm wondering if I should start a new one with my immediate family.
