Creating and sending mass messages is a breeze with your String account! But first, what is mass messaging?
Very simply, mass messaging is the ability to send the same message to multiple contacts at the same time. This means that if you send a message to 10 numbers, a separate conversation is initiated with each of them. Currently, the limit for the number of recipients for mass messaging is set to 500. There is the possibility that the maximum number could increase in the future. You can also batch messages if needed. For example, if you have 1000 recipients, you could potentially batch into 2 mass messages.
Here are the steps to initiate a mass message:
