Currently, group message names cannot be changed for technical reasons. The name of a group message is determined by the initial name given to the group at the time of creation, and cannot be modified afterwards. This is the case for most messaging applications. However, some messaging apps have added features like group nicknames or tags which give users the ability to add a custom name to a group message conversation without changing the original name. It is always best to check the app’s settings or contact their support team for more information on how to customize group message names.
