    Yes as in iOS 7 (or even 6 or earlier) can receive these messages and they appear as some sort of media messages in the Messages app that can be played back right there?

    How would they? At least not in the same way that iOS 8 allows for.

    Well the only person I know that will have iOS 7 (or below) by iOS 8 release, is my mum because of her iPhone 4. Although she also has an iPad 3...

    This sucks though. How is group messaging going to work with iOS 7 users and below?
