iPhone group MMS settings?

Does Telstra support Group MMS yet, as discussed in 2016 below (when it was not supported)?

Is there any way to change my carrier settings to enable it, so I have the option shown here?

I have a group of friends from around the world that use group MMS to communicate.   Some are on iPhones, some on Android, so we can't all use iMessage.   Some distrust Facebook Messenger/Whatsapp due to privacy concerns, some don't want to install an app just for what is basically one group text.  Please don't recommend 3rd party apps, I know they exist.

 

But because I'm on Telstra, I can't seem to enable Group MMS on my iPhone and so all of the messages meant for the group chat get filed individually per-person, making it impossible to follow.

 

Is there any way to enable Group MMS?  Thanks.
