Saying "wie geht's?" to multiple people

Out of curiosity, how would one say "how are you" in German to multiple people? Would you use something like "wie geht's" but make it appear like it's addressing the group? Thanks!

"Wie geht's?" should still be ok for one or more people, if you want to use longer version then "Wie geht es euch?" (informal) and "Wie geht es Ihnen?" (formal) would tak place.

You would still ask 'Wie geht's?' It means 'How's it going?'

'Wie geht's?' is short for 'Wie geht es (dir, Ihnen, euch)?' Meaning 'How is it going for you?'
