Broadcast messages (for later version after 1.0 release)

Sometimes I have to send a message or a file to more recipients.

Currently I have to send many messages with the same content or I have to create a group.

My idea is:

  • Add a item in the contact list “Broadcast list” (next to “new group”).
  • Let choose some recipients (similar to group creation).
  • Now put all the addresses into the “BCC field” (not into the “To field” as in "group creation).

This way I can send one message to many people without publish all addresses to all recipients.

You know this from regular mail :wink:


I need this also!!! I was thinking about to propose some kind of “read only group” so I can send the same message to a group of friends but I don’t want them to start chatting or annoying others members with unwanted messages, also I may not want to share the address of some members with the rest of the group, I think this is really useful for managers in business and for people at risk and activists.

Seems there’s no such solution in here so far.

This is similar to what WhatsApp has:


next version will have broadcast as described in the first post, see Broadcast group (distribution list) - #34 by r10s for details.
