Has anyone discovered a way to add and/or delete participates in a conversation? I thought I remembered a suggestion that this feature would/could be available in iOS 8.

You just add more recipients in the message by clicking on the plus. If you have started a conversation with one participant, you can add another by pressing in the area with the names of the people in the conversation and hit the "+" to add more people and to delete a recipient, just remove their name from the list of recipients.

In this case, it's an existing convo with Jon and I'd like to add his wife to the explanation I provided. Similarly, there're times when one should be dropped from the string of exchanges. That's my use case for this feature.

I have an option to tap on the plus next to the list of people in the message if I want to add or delete people.

You can't see the plus but it is in the text box with "To".

That works for an existing group convo of 3 or more to add participants but it doesn't permit the addition with a 2-way convo nor is there a way drop 1 party for whom the remaining back-and-forth is no longer relevant.
