The Wait is over! AT&T is increasing the number of people you can group text and it is slowly being rolled out and tested on specific devices. Check out David T's Advance Messaging page for more information regarding group messaging and the new features to come.

Why Are There Limits?
AT&T has implemented a limit to the number of group message participants as a way to protect our customers from spam and/or malicious software. AT&T is vigilant about protecting you, our customers, from unsolicited text message spam.
Is AT&T Going To Update The Limit?
I can tell you that we are evaluating options for supporting larger group limits in the future. As this time, I do not have any information if or when a change will take place. Last updated 5/22/2019.

Giving a lame reason why, but not raising or removing the limit does not help me. As said in many other responses, other carriers don't have this limit—why should I have to suffer because I chose ATT?

I agree! I come from a large family and have 5 siblings. When we discuss vacations or fam get togethers, the group tends to be 14-19. I am the only one in that group that cannot respond. Getting a message "too many recipients in conversation". Everyone thinks I am always ignoring the group. This feature is completely lame. I'm forced to download a third party messaging app that can override this major inconvenience
