Add more people to a group direct message

Group direct messages (DMs) are conversations between three or more people outside of channels. To bring other people into the loop, you can add them to a group DM. Adding someone new will start a new DM without the previous conversation’s history.



  1. From your desktop, open a group DM. 
  2. Click on the cluster of profile pictures in the top-right corner.
  3. Click on Add people to this group DM.
  4. Start typing the name of the person that you’d like to add, then select them from the list.
  5. Click on Go to create a new DM.
  1. From a group DM, tap the  details icon at the top right.
  2. Tap  Add people.
  3. Tap the boxes next to the people that you'd like to add. 
  4. Tap Add to create a new DM.

Tip: If you need to add more than nine people or to preserve a conversation's message history, you can move a group DM to a private channel instead.
