How groups work with blocked contacts?

A blocked contact cannot send you any messages personally, but if you have an existing group chat with a blocked contact, the group will remain unaffected. The blocked contact can still send you messages in groups that have you and the specific contact.

After one of you blocks the other, and if a third person adds both of you to a group, then the group will work normally. But if one of you (the blocked person or the person blocking the other) tries creating a group with the other, then there might be problems.
