Send Group Messages

Group messaging allows three or more 8x8 contacts to participate in a group instant messaging session.

To start a group messaging session:

  1. From a one-on-one chat session, click (in the old chat view) or (in the new chat view) in the upper-right corner of the chat window. A contact search box pops up.
  2. In the search box, enter the name or extension of the contact to add, and click Start Group Chat.

    Note: You can only add contacts who are currently logged in to the Virtual Office desktop app. You cannot add contacts who are currently logged off or only logged in to the Virtual Office mobile app, or those who are imported from Google. If not all desired contacts are online, you cannot start a group chat.

  3. Press Enter to select an online contact.
    All three users are added to a new group chat session. The original one-on-one chats with the users are still available for private discussions.
