I currently have two Google Groups: A and B. Is there any way to merge these two groups together and move all the people in group B into group A?

There are some people who are in both groups, so ideally the solution would handle duplicates.

I did find one solution, but I couldn't find the 'groups tab' the answer referred to. I suspect that answer referred to an older version of Google Groups, but if not and I'm just overlooking it, could somebody provide a more detailed breakdown of what to do?

  • The referred solution is regarding groups in Google Contacts that could be accessed directly from the Gmail web UI, not for Google Groups.

Unfortunately, what you are asking for is not possible. Google Groups has no such feature.


It looks like you can't really merge the groups into a whole group, but you can nest one under the other, which will allow the nested group to receive all of the emails and default settings of the parent group.


  • Nesting groups is only available for Google Groups for Business, not for the consumer edition.
