Group messaging

Recently I stopped receiving group messages from groups in which an Android phone is involved in. I have an iPhone. I receive individual text messages just fine. Worked fine and had no issues until yesterday this all started. Any suggestions

I no longer receive group text messages. I did a lot of the restart and other suggested things attempting to fix it. When I do I get a lot of texts messages all at once that read, "Message not found" from "Unknown." Very frustrating .....
