Mass Texts

Some discussions just don't fit into a well defined box. Use this forum to discuss general topics and issues revolving around the Church and the technology offerings we use and share.

Not that I've heard. However, the new Gospel Living app may change that - when it's finally released in all countries.

Hi kleavitt56:
I believe all of the limitations you've listed above still exist with standard texting (carrier limits).
I also have not heard about an updated offering from the church.
Our ward has been using Remind (remind.com) for more than a year now.
We have a master group for the ward, and smaller groups for the RS, EQ (and even a group for the parents of the Primary Activities for Girls).
Remind has allowed us to call a "communications committee" with several members that are empowered to send messages via text.
Messages can be sent from a web browser or from a smartphone via the Remind app.
The only drawback we've seen is you can add members to the group but they have to accept the invitation -- and some don't.
