The social network wrote in the “what’s new” section on the iTunes App Store:

  • Groups: Now you can create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos, and keep them all in one place.
  • Forwarding: Want to send a message or photo to someone who isn’t in the conversation? Just tap to forward it.
  • Plus, continued improvements to make the app faster and more reliable.
