Re: Adding Group MMS functionality to AOSP

I have figured it out and tested it on my Galaxy Nexus/toro.

Framework and Mms.apk now:

- Thread incoming MMS with all recipients
- Send Group MMS when the conversation contains more than 1 recipient
- MMS messages will shoe the sender's name/number just above the body of the message to help distinguish who is saying what in group conversations.

The first two features are toggled by a checkbox in the Messaging app Settings.

I am now in the process of cleaning up the code and submitting it via Gerrit.
