Sms option for group texts

I got an android system update to version 8.1.0 on my Samsung Galaxy Prime 3 2-3 days ago. I'm noticing that now my messaging app no longer allows group msgs to be sent as SMS even tho' it shows the option to do so in the app. I used to be able to send SMS to group before the upgrade. I use an app that allows SMS but not MMS to post from outside the app and I depend on that feature to communicate to several groups.

Group or picture messages always went as MMS.  All text, sms included, uses data, but is not deducted from your allowance.

Before the android update I had the option to send some group messages as
SMS. This was also true on the HTC phone I had previously.
