There are next types of groups in the app:
Internal
Groups that you can create, edit and delete. Internal groups are stored locally on your device and do not sync with iCloud.
iCloud
Groups that are stored in your Phone Book (iCloud/Contacts) and synced between your devices. In the LoopMessage app, you can NOT edit these types of groups.
The app can only read your iCloud contacts or groups, but not edit them.
If you want to edit groups or contacts from your phone book, please follow Apple's instructions:
Use Contacts on iCloud.com
Create and change groups in Contacts on Mac

Smart groups
Automatically created groups that contain contacts related to certain events. At the moment, only one such group "Today's Birthdays" is supported. You can't edit group data, but it is automatically updated when you launch the app.
