App is pretty good
by Sexy fell on 2019/07/19 23:39
App is good but if you don’t reply in your group you will be deleted or muted from the conversation thread! My class use it to communicate, it much better than Facebook messenger!

GroupMe

GroupMe is a great way to group chat with other phones that aren’t the same brand as you. I love using GroupMe and I won’t delete it for the foreseeable future!
Great App! Easy To use!
by Latté Lover on 2019/07/16 14:56
I've been using this app for a few years and have no complaints, just suggestions! I would love it if you guys could create a responds bar so you can reply to each individual message that a person sends (similar to FB or IG) opposed to creating a "new post". Also, it would be nice to have a search bar to look up posts opposed to strolling through 1,000 messages! Lastly, can you let us upload more than 1 pic at a time and at least 1 min. videos opposed to 30 sec.? Thanks in advance and great job with the app! 😊
Ya!

For the delivery company I’m with, GroupMe gives us uninterrupted communication, Versatility, photos, record keeping. Adding and removing patrons is easy and quick. Great App!

Missing chats

Works Okay

Takes a while to load. Won’t let me join new chats even after I’ve been added.
Needs Threading
by WestiefromCO on 2019/07/13 20:08
As another reviewer commented, the lack of threading makes it unwieldy and one of the major reasons our neighborhood watch group gave up on this app and closed the group. If the conversations worked in that respect like the Neighbors app for Ring, it would be perfect.

Good app but would like to see some added features. We enter members’ birthdays, but as soon as the day comes, they disappear. Need to be able to make events repeat so we don’t have to re-enter them every year. Also would like to see reminder notifications for events without having to go to the calendar every day to see if there is an event.

Great app but would be outstanding if you could set different notification tones for different groups. I have to mute all conversations besides our work group while at work. If I was able to set different tones I would know which ones to prioritize and which could wait without looking at my phone.

Why Does This App Never Add Features?
by ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪ on 2019/07/02 22:00
GroupMe would be the best messaging app, topping the charts, and outcompeting all other messaging apps if they listen to all the feedback and implement highly requested and demanded features. I don’t know why they haven’t already. However, they never update this app and never add features like search, deletion, etc. This is quickly becoming an outdated messaging service like all those old IM apps of the past. How long before they cancel this app and replace it altogether? I’d be fine with that if they refuse to update this app.

Great app but needs improvement
by Jarod1118 on 2019/07/02 13:25
The app works great and is very useful. However, if you wanted it to be used as an informational platform, I wouldn’t recommend it. Anyone can post on the thread and information shared gets lost on the endless responses by group members. The developers should add a feature in settings that allows anyone to post or just administrator of group to post. Another annoying feature is having to see everyone’s acceptance to a calendar invite. Again, should be a feature that only the administrator can see who accepts the calendar invite. Overall, the app is very useful but can definitely use some improvements.

Logging out
by ghiikendieiwc on 2019/07/01 18:13
Sometimes when I try to open GroupMe it says that I don’t have any groups, even though I have like 5. The only way to fix it is to log all the way out and in again and that usually fixes it.

by Andrew777777777777777777 on 2019/07/01 17:31

Good for adult sports teams, not yet great
by 7goes on 2019/06/27 22:42
This is wonderful and simple app for my purpose of running 3 three adult sports teams but three particular functions could be added to give an admin more control which is often needed, and that I would even pay for a premium version of the app to have as an Administrator. (it would then become a significant barrier if all members had to pay) First, pinning posts. A way to pin the most important posts to be seen first so that they do not become lost in conversation of the crowd. Second, a way to see which person votes in a particular poll instead of seeing only the raw vote for each choice. Third, attendance for everyone is a nice function that could be improved. It is nice to allow everyone to choose, but it would also be a good addition to also allow the admin to change someone’s response to an event if she has otherwise told him.
Bugs are ruining my experience
by xavierware9 on 2019/06/27 22:19
The app works well for a couple of days then it starts to crash. Every time I click it, I’m booted back onto the home screen. I still receive notifications but I’m unable to open the app. Also, if you’re in a large group the app freezes and lags.

Really needs ability to sync across devices
by jjsledge on 2019/06/18 16:52
One of the better group messaging apps out there. Especially if you have different phone softwares. Doesn’t really limit group size. My biggest issue is this. It doesn’t sync across my devices. I have it on my iPhone and iPad. I can read it on one of them, but the notification will still be active on the other. Can be really frustrating having to go back and forth between the two to clear notifications. Especially when the messages sync up fine.

Love - Hate Relationship
by Kel0095 on 2019/06/18 11:55
This is an overall good app. And I have a lot of groups set up in this app. But a couple issues that I wish you would improve. The ability to edit posts. It would be nice to correct spelling errors / remove pictures that mistakenly get posted. The ability to edit your groups without everyone being notified of edits. Deleting members or adding members especially. The ability to edit calendar events without everyone being notified as well. Basically editing anything without everyone being notified. A simple fix I am confident of the developers. 😊👍
Know what works? Email.
by Surly customer on 2019/06/18 02:49
This app might be nice if I wanted notifications whenever any member of the team has an ouchie on her toe. Because there’s no apparent way to distinguish important posts from those that aren’t, this would be useless even if it worked consistently. When teams have too many ways to communicate, communication suffers. I can’t see why a team needs anything other than an email list and calendar invitations.

GET THIS APP ASAP Read this if you are interested in getting this app!
by Sweet Skye on 2018/08/26 01:25
I loveeee group me! I love everything about it. The gifs, polls, calendar, GroupMe emojis, the ability to send videos and pictures, but there is one thing that I have been trying to change in settings for a while. Saving images taken on GroupMe. It’s soooo annoying to go back to my camera roll and delete the photos and videos that I don’t want saved on my camera roll, but I want sent to a group or DM in GroupMe. Please change this ASAP. I love practically everything except that one feature I mentioned. Also be aware that you can only DM or have a group chat with people that have GroupMe. That doesn’t seem to bother me much. If you are looking for a good group messaging and DM app, then you HAVE to get this app. I communicate with my family (and created a family chat), my friends, and it’s quick and easy! It’s hard to swoop by this app without getting it. Defiantly recommended!
Pretty good, with one complaint
by mamageorgiavan on 2019/02/26 06:09
This app works well and is excellent for large group chats for the most part. It’s easy to switch between groups and I’ve never had a problem with messages coming through or notifications. It’s been wonderful! HOWEVER, I really wish members could comment on a post. Instead, important messages get lost in a sea of responses and different topics so every conversation is an endless cycle of scrolling. If I want to look back at what someone said a few days ago (like when and where to meet, for instance) I have to scroll through every single message (and “lol”), instead of things being neatly nested so I can just scroll through topics. Other times, if other people start talking and I miss it I end up scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, scrolling back to see what on earth they’re even talking about and honestly, by the time I find it I usually just don’t even care anymore, I’m so numb by the search for the one little comment that started the whole conversation. I’ve tried using other apps because of this issue, but this app really is superior performance wise, except for this ONE thing. Developer Overlords, PLEASE, please let us thread comments so we can stop this endless scrolling!! I can’t take it much longer! But nice job on the app overall. There’s a reason I’ve held out so long.
Group name in notifications
by Kwame Family on 2018/01/26 07:26
Could y’all make it so that we can see which group a person belongs to in the notifications area? Specially the lock screen? Currently, if a GroupMe notification alerts your device, you only see the person’s name and not which group the person is from. It would be SOOO helpful, if I was able to see which group a person was chatting from without opening the app. For users involved in several groups with similar people, it’s critical to know which group the notification came from ASAP. iMessage has this feature and it is a lifesaver when you need to respond quickly. It’s like knowing it’s a friend from ‘hot yoga group’ asking about the last minute location change and not someone in your ‘biology study group’ asking were class is. Imagine being in different groups with people who have the same name! It’s so confusing when you read a message from John thinking it’s John your work supervisor when it’s really your best friend John sending you a picture of the roach he found in the bathtub. (Bc you cannot see pictures in the notifications which is another comment altogether). I still love this app! Best group messaging there is!
Great App, but could be even better
by jsmit5635 on 2017/09/20 14:43
This is a great app that I use every single day for a bunch of different group messages, but I feel like there are a few ways it could be improved to make it even more useful/ easier to use: Being able to view a picture from a notification without having to go into the app. It is very annoying to have to pull out my phone and go into the app to see the picture especially when I have an Apple Watch. It would be great to have an Apple Watch app to accommodate the iOS app. Along with being able to view a picture right from the notification this would be extremely useful with the new Apple Watch with cellular connectivity. Imagine if you are out going for a walk or run with just your Apple Watch Series 3 and someone sends you a picture. With the current system you would have to wait until you got home to view the picture. Another nice feature for the Apple Watch app would be the ability to see past messages instead of just the ones from notifications that go away when you tap on them. This would be just like how the messages app works on my Apple Watch.
Messages Not Showing. Edit. Edit again
by annaw2002 on 2019/01/18 04:49
I haven’t had a problem with this until today, but today I got message notifications for a group and could see the messages. But after a while, I was getting notifications but not seeing them when I opened the app. The time stamp shows the time of the most recent message (that I can’t see) in the group. Other than this, I have had no problems and enjoy the app. Edit: I deleted then re-logged into the app, and now I cannot see any of the messages in that group. However, I can still click on the group info and see the images, group members, etc. Also, other group messages and individual chats are unaffected by this. I would really appreciate it if this issue could be resolved soon. Thank you! Edit again: after this update, nothing happened. I still cannot see any messages in the one group (still other groups/messages seem to be unaffected). I get notifications for the group and can click on them, but it brings me to the “group chat” where it says no one has sent anything yet, even though I have gotten notifications. There have been some images sent and I can see those if I click on the button that lets you see all the images others have sent. Please fix!!!
Great, would love more admin privileges
by douglasallison12 on 2018/07/02 19:27
I work with students, teachers and other types of groups with leaders and so have several groups going. The app has helped with organization, collaboration and of course communication. I get more done because of GroupMe. It is so much more effective than email. My plea/suggestion is this: please allow chat admins to configure a chat so that only they can post messages and the rest of the group can “like” or participate in polls and such. With students, it’s easy to get chatter going that puts the number of messages into the hundreds and thousands and they’re just messing around. Then the substantive messages get lost so that the people who persevere have a terrible time sorting out the fluff from the real stuff while other people understandably set notifications to “do not disturb” or leave the chat altogether. I’d like to be able to set a chat with several dozen people for one-way communication and have another group where everyone can chatter and ask/answer questions. That would help my job a ton!
Locked Me Out!!! 😡🔐
by Sabor Místico on 2018/07/25 19:30
I have always used my email account to log into GroupMe, and have never had a problem before. However, now I am locked out of my account on all my iOS devices - even though I continue to receive all my alerts. It’s all tied to the phone number attached to my account. Ugh!! Additionally, having your phone number attached to your GroupMe account is insecure for us because anyone in the group can go into the settings and see it. It is perfectly possible to want to participate in a group chat without wanting to divulge your phone # to other participants. Did you never think of this? Such is the case with me - and to my chagrin there have been people who have used the app to find out my phone # and call me when I did not want that. So if security is your concern, why aren’t you addressing that? Finally, there are clearly far too many people locked out of our own accounts, and this isn’t a coincidence. It is all tied to a sign-in system rigidly tied to the use of our phone numbers - and it ISN’T working. Find us some workable solutions with better options because this is awful!! A one ⭐️ rating is much more than this app deserves at the this time.
Connecting
by Myke.M on 2019/01/12 12:46
I just wanted to say that I love your app first of all. It’s a great way to communicate with people. I just started using it matter fact it’s the only one that I signed up for I don’t use the computer that much anymore matter fact not at all during thing I use it for is to look up stuff I need for work and I’ve always was against Facebook and all the other stuff I thought it was too much but now I have your app and I use it to be connected with families for church and it lets me communicate with those people when I’m not at church and I love it for that. awesome company give up the good work I know people complain about certain apps they have where it they fail they are down they don’t work right well since I’ve been using this app never had a problem with anything nothing but five stars for me and two thumbs up...

Group me is one of the best apps I have been using to contact people. This app lets me contact people, it has its own emojis, and it’s perfect for people who don’t have apple. However, this app deletes messages that you are not really active in. It does help if your inbox is filled but if you want to save something it’s not really good. But on the other hand it makes sure that you are actively talking to people so that’s great! I recommend this app seriously unless you not into that “deleting” thing. I don’t even know if that is true but when I first tried it that is what people told me to be careful about so.... Also, GroupMe lets you see the messages that happened before you got into the chat. That’s great so you can catch up on what’s been going on. It also lets you change what people see your name as so your name can change depending on you not other people unless they are the ones putting you in a chat. But overall, GroupMe is a great app. I totally recommend. Bye! 👑👑👑🥳🥳🥳🔥🔥🔥😏😏😏💋💋💋💋💋
Bugs
by Holden14 on 2019/06/07 19:01
I’ve always used group me and am happy with it, however, I have had a lot of trouble adding people to the groups. In big group chats that have been around a long time, people do not want to leave the group me or create a new one usually because there are good memories in the group. On multiple occasions I have been unable to add someone back to a group, either because they have left in the past or because they were removed. I have experienced this issue as an admin and a normal user in a group, and if it happens to one person, nobody in the group has the ability to add that person back. If that person is a vital member of the group, the entire group chat gallery and messages are lost because we have to create a new one. This has happened enough times for me to write a review about it. I am unhappy that our previous groups’ memories have been lost and become inactive and wish I was able to start the old chats again by adding the previous members back.
Solid App
by Mymy7 on 2017/12/07 19:08
I wish there were some additional features to make this more customizable. For instance a “like” option or “thumbs up” option for different comments that people leave or a way to customize the background or appearance of the message board itself. Otherwise this is a great way to communicate with a group of people. I use this for my baseball team and it’s a great way to know who is commenting on what without having to put all their information into my phone and everyone else’s phone. It clearly shows who is commenting or asking questions. It even allows me to send a direct message to one or two of the people inside the entire group without having to say certain things to everyone on the group chat. I also use this separately for my coaches so we can discuss things we need to work on in practice or cover before games. Overall I like the app and recommend it to other people.
Navigating Help is Terrible
by vivianspits on 2018/01/28 18:33
I received an email that my account was changed over to another email, which was not done by me. I clicked on the link provided to indicate that this is an issue, and their “help page” does not have any link specific to the issue. Still trying to solve the problem, I emailed their support email with a quick little blurb about what’s going on and a screenshot of the email I received from them. My email got sent back for being too large, although it had less than a paragraph and one normal sized screenshot image. This experience has been excessively complicated and my problem is not resolved. I am now sitting with concern about having some random person accessing my account. Upon redownloading the app, it is only allowing me to create a new account rather than having any option to log in with a previously made account. I’ve had to spend way more time and energy than is necessary, and still have not been able to get through the process. I’m a 22 year old college student, so I’m fairly competent with technology, but this is ridiculous.
Great, but one suggestion!
by Asit2 on 2017/12/19 06:17
This app is by far the best when it comes to large group communication. Not overbearing with excessive notifications due to the mute options but still fun enough to form a sense of unity within the group. However, as somebody who primarily uses this app for a mixture of business and fun, important messages can easily get lost in the daily jokes and conversation. I wish there was a way to have an announcements board where only admins or group leaders can post. Everyone, even those who have the group muted, will be notified immediately (or have this as a separate option “mute all except announcements”). Or a way to pin the announcement at the top of everyone’s messages until the leader/admin sees it fit to remove. This would greatly enhance my group’s communication without having to resort to numerous emails or a separate app.
Launching via lock screen
by Cjf_15 on 2018/04/02 19:59
When I receive a message and tap on it to pull up the app, it needs to switch to the chat feed to which the message I’m replying to belongs. It does no good to be able to switch to the app by tapping on a message I get from a person/group if the active thread is going to remain on whichever person/group I was using last. Very frustrating to have to remember to double check which thread I’m in when I just tapped on a message from a particular person/group. It would stand to reason that if I tap on a lock screen message from, say, my wife, that it would switch to my chat feed with her when the app comes up and not remain in, say, the group chat feed I have with colleagues if that’s the group to which I last sent a message. Please fix this
This app is full of crap.
by nerd in more ways than one on 2018/04/01 23:27
Okay. I use groupme for one reason: it doesn’t require every member in a group chat to have group chat abilities on their device. That being said, it’s a load of crap. I hate it. If someone hasn’t responded, for one, they may not be getting the messages. Second, if *I* set up this group chat, and put these people on it, that means I have their contact information, so if they don’t want to be on it anymore, LET US TAKE CARE OF IT. IT IS NOT FOR THE APP TO DECIDE WHETHER THESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT TO BE A PART OF THE GROUP. Some people are also content to receive the messages and not reply. It’s a thing, believe it or not. Let the members of the group chat deal in their own affairs, and stop making assumptions, especially TWO SECONDS after I just deleted someone and put them back on FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF ALLOWING THEM TO SEE THE NOTIFICATIONS AGAIN!!! Honestly! Either cut that out or at least make it easier for someone to discontinue the discontinuation of notifications. This is an awful app and y’all whoever designed this piece of crap needs to get it fixed.
Love the app, but would love more grouping options
by kwagnes on 2017/12/10 00:09
I use this app daily for work.. it is a great tool to keep connected and not loose touch. I like that it doesn’t consume a great deal of my storage on my phone. It is also nice to have a long running record of the conversations that have been had. It allows for me to add and remove people as needed and not miss a beat in the conversation. The only thing I would LOVE to see is to be able to make master groups. I have over 30 chats going, and that is just for work... It would be great to make a group and then have subgroups. I have groups with each manager that I work with and then they also have groups with the shops that they work with (team chat groups) I always have to be very cautious to not send the message to the manager in the group for the team. It would just organize things every better.
Makes Life Easier
by Phoneless Freshmen on 2017/11/28 22:02
I'm a freshmen in high school and am an active member of student council...but I don't have an IPhone, just an IPod. Because of this, it is difficult for me to keep in contact with my group members. GroupMe helped a lot because it allowed us all to communicate with each other easily so no one falls behind. You can attach different events to the calendar so everyone in your chat knows and can send pictures with each other. One thing that I've noticed is trouble in inviting certain people, meaning it says you've "invited them" but they can't get in. If you have this problem, I recommend different people try to add you, not just one person over and over again. It's very simple and great for school activities like this.
Great, but still room for immediate improvement
by Mindrunner88 on 2018/02/27 00:14
Love the apps ability to more efficiently control group communication and perform such from my computer while sending over SMS (not just the messaging platform). That said, there is an obvious improvement that they intentionally leave out. If people I think he group don’t’ accept the invitation to stay a part of the group, they are automatically removed from SMS (text) messages from the group. In short, they use an Opt In platform rather than Opt Out, which would be so much better! I use this for large group messages with parents who aren’t always super savvy or aware of the “Opt In” procedure, so I keep ending up with parents not receiving messages, leaving having to go back to text messages to make up for it. Annoying! Make it an Opt-Out structure and this is a clear 5 Stars!
Pretty decent app; has some challenges
by American in Hong Kong on 2019/06/10 16:52
It's great to share experiences, pics, and vids with my family and friends x-platform, x-carrier, and around the world. Flexible app with reasonable functionality. Significant challenges include 1) can't delete or edit comments - just hide them, which only hides it on the individual side; 2) it would be very nice if tech support at least acknowledged that we send them emails, and responded within six months; 3) at times it's difficult to invite new GroupMe users to a direct message - can only add them to a group message; 4) impossible to search within a discussion/conversation without painfully scrolling back through the chat to find the reference you are looking for; 5) no exporting/printing capability which would be especially good from a family history or team dynamics perspective.
Awful performance issues
by TechNickViews on 2018/06/15 12:55
I am always disappointed when I am forced to re-download GroupMe for other people. It’s performance while not on WiFi is absolutely abysmal. I often receive messages in my notifications bar from other group members. Then when I navigate to the group chat the messages, they are not there. I try to memorize the message in the notification bar if it is short enough to understand how to reply. Sometimes it takes up a few minutes for them to display In the chat. I can sometimes get it to show faster if I try to force a refresh. This lag has resulted in me not only missing messages but also leaving people behind on trips. I use telegram, signal, iMessage, discord, WhatsApp, and messenger. None of them have the performance issues that GroupMe does while on cell service. I don’t understand why this app is so highly rated when it has such critical issues on a modern iPhone. If GroupMe’s user base wasn’t so large I wouldn’t have to keep downloading it.
I don’t want much
by omihek on 2019/03/07 01:46
Update: just reposting this review for the latest update All I want is to be able to delete a one-on-one chat with someone. That’s all. I don’t want to “hide” it. I don’t want to “clear” it. I want to straight up delete it. It obviously wouldn’t delete it from their device, just mine. And then what would happen if they messaged me again? Oh it would behave like every other messaging app ever made and just create a new chat with the person on my device. And then when we were done chatting, I could delete it again, just like that. I don’t feel like I’m asking too much, but then again I’m no developer, so maybe I am. Maybe deleting stuff is near impossible. Apple somehow figured it out. I can delete any conversation I want from iMessage. But then they are known for their “it just works” way of doing things. You guys should ask them how they do it. Send them a kind, humble email asking them how in the world they figured out how to delete a chat in iMessage. Please, do it for me.
New update created new frustrations
by ba6600 on 2018/08/17 21:13
While for the most part the app works good, the new update has become somewhat annoying. Overall the appearance is clean and runs smooth but I have 2 gripes. 1. Why do timestamps happen so frequently now (or at all honestly) between comments. I’ve seen a string of 3 comments in a group all get time stamped yet were posted within 5 minutes of each other. I don’t care that much about when someone posted a comment especially when I can click on it and get the exact time it was posted. 2. When posting links (especially Instagram) why is the spacing so messed up, the name and avatar hover over the top of the link posted. It was perfect before but now there’s an annoying overlay. 3. Why must I put my first and last name into the profile in setting? Especially since I can just change my name in any group anyways. 4. At times since the update there will be a weird spacing issue from a new comment on the bottom and between the box to type. Not always but still very annoying when it does happen. Willing to change star rating if things are explained or corrected.
Baffled
by tfwappleappstoredoesntevenwork on 2018/02/14 01:26
I am actually baffled by how awful this app is. It simply does not work when a chat is active. It fails to fill its most basic purpose. A user of a messaging app should be able to read messages as they are coming in, ESPECIALLY an app whose primary purpose is group chats. The app spazzes or jumps to random places in the chat or freezes altogether when other people are sending messages in the chat. When I try to type a message, my entire phone freezes and I can’t even see the message as I type it. I have to wait fifteen seconds to see it on my screen. This is definitely not a hardware problem as I have no issues like this using whatsapp or telegram. I really hope this review is seen and taken seriously because this app has some extreme problems with its most basic functionality; it’s essentially unusable way too often. Are you not using views to optimize performance and resource use??? I just don’t understand. Sooo frustrating please do something!!
Love the app, how do you make small suggestions that would make a huge improvement
by Hat 1981 on 2018/04/04 13:41
I love this App and it allows me to communicate with the parents of all the teams easily and quickly. As a parent when we’ve used it, the one thing I find difficult is once a coach sends out a message, every parent responds, sometimes leading to multiple conversations and sometimes making it difficult to scroll back and determine the actual message the coach was trying to get across. There should be an option to have only coach be able to communicate on that thread, and responses be seen only by the coach or just where the communication happens in direct messaging or the responses bullet point off where the original message is clear and easy to follow! Otherwise great app!
Specific Date Feature
by Gabriela R. Perez on 2018/01/18 15:36
The app is really convenient and I use it everyday! Especially for chatting with my friends who live in different parts of the world. It would be really nice to have an option where you could look up a certain date in the chat. Meaning that if you want to look at a specific photo taken or just recall a great moment in the chat, it would make it easier to have an option that lets you search by month, day, year, or if you know the exact date you can just type it in. This would be much simpler than scrolling up or even searching through the gallery looking for that one photo. Especially if you have a chat that’s active almost 24/7. I’d really love to see this feature implemented in the app in the near future.
I was removed
by basketballer12345678 on 2018/08/09 15:50
OK so… I got removed from the group chat that I was in because my coach had to change my name to make it right and she re-added me but now my group won’t show up on the group me app so I can’t get back into it and we can’t figure out how I can get back into it without her we adding me thousand times because she’s already added me twice over and over and the Groupon show up so I can’t get into it and we can’t figure out what to do about it so if you could just tell me what I could do to get back into the group that I was removed from it would be great thank you this app is amazing I love it it’s good for groups it’s good for direct message it’s good for everything really thank you for making it
Good app, spam accounts
by HollyBissell on 2019/04/04 15:30
I’ve used GM throughout my highschool years and so far my freshman and sophomore year of college but starting last fall around December in all of my chats even private ones, spam accounts would manage to slither in and blow up the chats with fake essay writing services. Like I’m talking if you leave the chat alone for 15 minutes all of a sudden 8 spam accounts will have joined and posted the same exact post/link. I can get rid of them as an admin but they keep joining back. I’ve doubled down on privacy and who I accept but somehow people manage to get into a chat that I never accepted. Most recently it will say a bunch of people joined a chat, but they don’t show up in the members so I can’t remove them now. They’re just there, waiting until 2 more weeks when they’re gonna explode every single chat. Help please
YES, YES!
by nooxandcrannies on 2018/11/24 02:13
I’ve been an active GroupMe user for several years and it has never failed! Extremely reliable, it now provides day and night mode, and puts me in contact with everyone, even without their phone number! My only complaint would be that people I have been in one chat with do not show when I want to add them to an exclusive chat. I believe that’s part to do with the coding of the software, as this particular thing works if I’ve been in two chats or more with a person. Other than that, it is an amazing tool and I recommend it whenever I’m working with someone on a university project. 100% recommend for everyone to have installed on their phone!
Unable to use any longer
by reneetu on 2018/07/13 14:36
1) Whatever updates have transpired I am no longer able to add users to groups. They just don’t show up for me to add like they used to. Did a synch on contacts with groupme seems like it made it worse. I have to ask others members to add them now. Frustrating. Kinda giving up. 2) Also frustrating groupme randomly pops up all single person groups making a big mess with multiple singles groupmes that I don’t want displayed. So I then have to go individually HIDE CHAT. 3) But then that option HIDE CHAT is not available for every groupme so then. I’m stuck with all of these groupmes displayed on phone. Cludgy.. 3) would be nice for individual person groupmes to not just randomly pop up (all of them) I know this is a free app and it is nice but just wanted to input what’s making it unusable now.
Solid app but needs updates
by Capibaby on 2017/12/13 22:08
Let me start by saying the app is great but definitely has limitation. Messaging sometimes freezes up causing delays. Or it will skip trying to send a message altogether. Also I’ve noticed when trying to share a link from another source it doesn’t always send. Also the fact you can’t delete anything is obnoxious. Old groups / DMs and photos just makes the app annoying. I have to hide a conversation if it’s no longer valid but I can’t just delete like I can in WhatsApp, Text or literally any other application. We use this app for our church group and sometime you get a separate message that’s not important. It would be nice to be able to clear up space and simply be able to delete. Other than that the app works well and is functional.
I love GroupMe! One suggestion.
by DevinDash on 2017/08/29 15:36
I love GroupMe! I use it for every collaboration project at school and work because of the convenience that it adds. The most convenient tool is that I can create a group with a specific name so I know exactly who I'm talking to and for what project. This eliminates searching through my everyday messaging app for the names of members of my group. One addition that I think would expand the app is a feature that allows group leaders to show members how to join. For example, text "custom message" to "#####." I know this would make it convenient for people to join groups I create that are for the purpose of sending reminders about events, assignments, or projects.
Innovative. All around great!
by NikkiLovesBabyDrake on 2019/02/15 03:25
This app is great! Other than simply having a chat session, I love that you get set up your notification ringtone on top of being able to control the notifications. I love that you can have multiple groups going. Haven’t had any problem with glitches so far either... Connects to everyone in your contacts if you want it too & shows who is in every group. I like that it’s up to date and shows every little thing—such as who adds a new member, who they added, and when.. You can transfer ownership. And even for the less tech-savvy out there, it’s easy to navigate, set up, and use on a daily basis! 😊 Love it!!
Few bugs, but all in all a good app
by fyreous on 2017/12/02 14:21
This app is great for helping to facilitate more reliable group communications among people who have different OS platforms on their smartphones. But I do have a couple of suggestions for improvement: 1. The app ALWAYS opens in portrait orientation, even if the iPhone / iPad is on it’s side. In order to rotate it to landscape, I have to rotate my device to portrait and back to landscape in order for the app to register the orientation change. I’d like to see a fix implemented that detected the device orientation on launch and automatically adjusts, without the need to manually “kick” it to the right layout. 2. I’m not sure if this fix is possible, but I’d love that if I read a message on one device or the desktop app, the other instances of the GroupMe app on my other devices registered those message(s) as read, and removed the notification. Currently, I have to open the app on each device in order for messages to be marked as read on that device. 3. I do wish the character limit on messages could be extended. Currently, longer text posts have to be broken up into multiple pieces to post them in a group. It would be great if this limit could be extended.
Muting without going into the app
by Pilotsmallz on 2018/05/23 01:59
On Facebook messenger you have the ability to mute for an hour from the notification itself. Normally I would use Facebook messenger but for some reason people prefer this app. Could there be an easier way to mute the app without going into the app itself? And perhaps have it in 1 hour/ 5 hour intervals? Also, messenger no longer vibrates with each message after a number of consecutive messages, this is something I would love to have on this app because I can’t tell you how much I love feeling my phone vibrate over and over and over for 30 minutes, wasting my battery. These are all features that can be resolved by going into the app, but messenger makes the process so much easier and I think GroupMe can apply similar techniques.
GroupMe Review
by doodle_bug225 on 2017/11/16 04:33
GroupMe is an app that helps friends and family contact each other without having to know each other's number. It works by searching up ur friends or you can access your contact to see if any of them have the app. Once you have selected the person you wish to contact you can chose to make it a private conversation or an open conversation where you can add anyone you like. Over all it is a pretty good app it have. It openeds the way to new friendships and relationship. The only thing that I do not like about the app is that when ever your Ina group text, other people can take you out of the group and that you get every notification from the group text. Other than that I think it's a great app that everyone should have. November 15,2017
Very Good For Groups (Duh)
by Asphalt racer 2016 on 2019/06/07 01:33
Ok, so first of all let me say I enjoy this app as a counterpart to texting groups and such. I even prefer it to iMessage because the navigation is so intuitive. It's a perfectly good app, and I recommend downloading it over Skype or something. However, one thing that would make it better, would be if for a direct message, you could make a contact for them, so if they are a close friend you have a nickname for, you could for instance, name 'Kelly' Potato or whatever weird name you have for them 😂. It wouldn't change anything on their side; their group name and universal name wouldn't change at all. Other than some development opportunities, great app that I would definitely recommend to anyone. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Pretty good!
by (I) Stan (many groups) on 2018/07/30 19:14
This app is ingenious. The meming option is hilarious, and I find the emojis very funny; to whoever put in that options, you got a chuckle out of me. It’s much less confusing when looking at group messages, rather than my iPhones usual iMessage. And I love how this can also work for other types of mobile phones. However, I do find that I either don’t get notifications or I receive them much later. I also find it annoying when I check said notifications, they won’t load sometimes and I have to close out the app to see them. But these are minor things that I’m sure could be fixed in a later update. All in all though, this is definitely an app that I would recommend to my friends!
New add user option
by KaleighCat on 2018/02/21 21:27
I think there should be an ‘add user by email’ option. I think this would be useful especially in school or work settings where someone might know others’ school or work email address but not necessarily their phone number. When a new user registers their number, they could be given the option, “Would you like to register your school/work email?” If the security of this option is a concern, perhaps only people with the same email domain could add you by email. i.e. only someone in the same company or same school could be added by email. Hope to see this option in the future!
Works Well
by Frank 🚒 on 2018/02/16 23:20
EDIT: I discovered this was due to the iOS character crash; a user had placed the faulty character in chat group causing the app to become inoperable. After removing the group from the desktop version and re-downloading the app it now works fine. GroupMe, I tried contacting you via HelpDesk, but you don’t seem to have any tech support info. I am currently running 5.15.1 on iOS 11.2.5, and am unable to access the app at all, as it crashes immediately upon opening. I have tried resetting my phone and re-downloading the app to no avail. I rely on GroupMe heavily for business, so please help as quickly as possible. Thank you!
Good, but had some difficulties

It’s a great app for groups to use to stay in touch without giving everyone’s phone numbers away. I recently had a hard time with changing a phone number in the settings. It wouldn’t let me since my new phone number was already receiving massages on a different account that was created (which I didn’t know) when I was added to a group with my new phone rather the email I had set an account up with. In the end, I had to create a new account with a new email to get the messages to send to the app, rather than through SMS. Now that this has been fixed, all my problems have been solved. I was, however, disappointed that the help websites weren’t very clear and in the end left me quite frustrated.
Needs a Bug Fixed
by alnima14 on 2017/09/14 17:40
I always use this app on my iPad and I have a keyboard case, making it so my iPad is always rotated (landscape). Whenever I open this app, it still comes up as it the iPad were upright (portrait). It is quite aggravating because I want to read messages and type at the same time but that can only be done if I tilt my head as far as possible. Other than that, the app is pretty awesome and lets me have group chats with all of the other students in the same lab/lecture with me. Great for large groups and the best part is nobody will have your personal number. Because of the annoying bug, I knocked two stars off. However, the app works awesome on my phone (I don't have to tilt my phone because my keyboard is not detached from my phone)
Just a couple things
by danipo49 on 2018/10/25 14:47
Really great app. Works amazing if you actually have the app. I have friends though who don’t have smartphones and on their end, this way of group messaging is terrible. But I don’t really know how you would fix that. One thing you could fix though is being able to delete conversations you don’t need anymore. I messaged my band director on here once to let him know my metronome didn’t have the exact tempo I needed for my music test. That was two years ago and I STILL. HAVE IT. Other than that it’s super. Love that you can create surveys, and events, and it’s so easy to see who can come and who can’t.. love it. But PLEASE let me clean out my messages instead of just “hiding” them.
Pretty good except needs more controls
by Husl2014 on 2017/08/23 17:33
I have at least 7 or 8 active GroupMe groups and it is much better than using group texts because I can remove myself whenever I want, I can mute it. I also appreciate the gallery with all our previously shared photos. However, I wish there was a way to make sure that I'm replying to the right group. With so many, it's easy to accidentally say something about drinking on Friday night to the women in my church group. Lol. Also, for groups that are really active- I'd love to be able to organize the conversation in some way so I can catch-up on what I missed while I was actually working without reading through 6 hours of gifs and tangents.
Phone Number
by keland02 on 2019/02/15 20:16
I do have a GroupMe account and I love the app. But there is one thing I don’t really like. You have to have a phone number to have an account. I don’t have a phone or a phone number so I had to sign in under my mother’s account so no one knows of it’s me or her. She also gets my private texts that she doesn’t want to be in but, because it’s under her account she doesn’t have a choice. It’s the same on my end. IS THERE A WAY FOR ME TO LOG IN WITHOUT A PHONE NUMBER? If there is please tell me ASAP ‘cuz it’s getting a little annoying. Thanks! I still love the app either way and will continue to use it! Thanks again!
Notifications for one group, but not another? Does that option exist?
by Icosace1022 on 2018/09/03 20:12
Like, my friends uses GroupMe as a place for our college club to keep informed on our schedule and events. I posted something about myself in the chat, ‘cause I made friends, but other people might have thought I was spamming the group. So, I started to talk to only some friends from the club; I wish I could have notifications and banners for a few, but not the main group. If there’s already a setting in the app that can help me, that’s cool. I’ll look this up online. But this app really helps when you don’t have peoples’ numbers. Thanks for reading, I know I might have got carried away in my own story.
Bugs need fixed!
by lissaleigh919 on 2018/02/16 06:53
I love this app and as a college student I use it often! However, here lately I continuously get a notification saying my message can not be delivered even at times I’m just reading messages and not sending any. I get glitches that say I have no connection and my messages won’t send for at least five minutes and that’s only after I try and try repeatedly. I rely on this app for many clubs and groups I am part of but am very disappointed in the performance lately. I have even stayed up to date with updates including a recent one that was supposed to rid the message not sent glitch, but sadly mine has just become worse. Really would like to see this fixed so I can enjoy the app once again!
Great app but needs improvement
by Jarod1118 on 2019/07/02 13:25
The app works great and is very useful. However, if you wanted it to be used as an informational platform, I wouldn’t recommend it. Anyone can post on the thread and information shared gets lost on the endless responses by group members. The developers should add a feature in settings that allows anyone to post or just administrator of group to post. Another annoying feature is having to see everyone’s acceptance to a calendar invite. Again, should be a feature that only the administrator can see who accepts the calendar invite. Overall, the app is very useful but can definitely use some improvements.
Bugs and Missing Features
by vlad the nan on 2018/09/28 14:00
This app was originally a great upgrade from iPhone group messaging which couldn’t easily include androids and from fb messenger which was clunky. However, as time has passed bugs and missing features have made the app inferior to other options such as Slack. The bug I’m referring to is the inability to access group settings (group name and avatar) for certain iOS users. Once they fix this bug I’d add a star to my rating. Missing features refers primarily to the inability to search for a specific message within a group chat. This is relatively simple functionality that the groupme team seems to have overlooked. If the app were to fix the bug and add this feature, I’d give it 4 or 5 stars but unfortunately it only deserves 2 in its current state.
The app is okay but could be much better
by Blessedforlife1 on 2017/09/25 16:53
The biggest issue that I am having right now is the fact that I use group me on my iPad the majority of the time and for some reason it always takes a long time for the app to go from portrait to landscape mode. Sometimes it just wont turn at all, and then my other issue is that I wish the app could sync with my phone. There are times when I open messages on my phone and then go on my iPad to still see all the notifications from that same message there and the same things happens when I view messages from my iPad. Also the auto brightness thing doesn’t work on my iPad. The app itself is okay but could be much better

Great App! Easy To use!
by Latté Lover on 2019/07/16 14:56
I've been using this app for a few years and have no complaints, just suggestions! I would love it if you guys could create a responds bar so you can reply to each individual message that a person sends (similar to FB or IG) opposed to creating a "new post". Also, it would be nice to have a search bar to look up posts opposed to strolling through 1,000 messages! Lastly, can you let us upload more than 1 pic at a time and at least 1 min. videos opposed to 30 sec.? Thanks in advance and great job with the app! 😊
Ya!

Needs Threading
by WestiefromCO on 2019/07/13 20:08
As another reviewer commented, the lack of threading makes it unwieldy and one of the major reasons our neighborhood watch group gave up on this app and closed the group. If the conversations worked in that respect like the Neighbors app for Ring, it would be perfect.

Why Does This App Never Add Features?
by ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪ on 2019/07/02 22:00
GroupMe would be the best messaging app, topping the charts, and outcompeting all other messaging apps if they listen to all the feedback and implement highly requested and demanded features. I don’t know why they haven’t already. However, they never update this app and never add features like search, deletion, etc. This is quickly becoming an outdated messaging service like all those old IM apps of the past. How long before they cancel this app and replace it altogether? I’d be fine with that if they refuse to update this app.

Good for adult sports teams, not yet great
by 7goes on 2019/06/27 22:42
This is wonderful and simple app for my purpose of running 3 three adult sports teams but three particular functions could be added to give an admin more control which is often needed, and that I would even pay for a premium version of the app to have as an Administrator. (it would then become a significant barrier if all members had to pay) First, pinning posts. A way to pin the most important posts to be seen first so that they do not become lost in conversation of the crowd. Second, a way to see which person votes in a particular poll instead of seeing only the raw vote for each choice. Third, attendance for everyone is a nice function that could be improved. It is nice to allow everyone to choose, but it would also be a good addition to also allow the admin to change someone’s response to an event if she has otherwise told him.
Bugs are ruining my experience

The app works well for a couple of days then it starts to crash. Every time I click it, I’m booted back onto the home screen. I still receive notifications but I’m unable to open the app. Also, if you’re in a large group the app freezes and lags.

No ability to edit posts, non searchable for discussions must scroll all the way back in hopes of finding something. No way to retract or delete a post.
Encouragement
by greengrandma Sandy on 2019/06/22 15:55
It’s been nice to be able to be a part of a group and I live an hour away, we’ve been able to text each other at the store and show what has been beneficial to buy and what hasn’t and laugh about it.!!!! That’s fur the app.

This has made it So much easier for me and my friends from school to be able to talk to each other, and I am grateful to say that friendships have grown as a result of it. Thanks Groupme😊
Slow to update
by Brian Ea on 2019/06/21 16:58
Love the app but incoming messages show up on my locked screen but often are delayed on the app - so I see a flash of the message but that’s it! Frustrating
5 stars
by mrsNunez452 on 2019/06/21 00:54
I just wish that you can delete the old chats. I can only hide them . I want an option to delete the one on one messages. I have chats from 12 years ago. Other than that 5 stars all the way
Memes are good and stuff
by Memesaredank47 on 2019/06/20 21:18
The meme making thing is great, as well as the app it’s self. Good app, great for group chats and this review is good. UwU

Absolutely no way to delete post things how stupid is that.
Where is support?
by MommyBoston on 2019/06/19 00:13
Has anyone heard from support? My daughter relies on this app for school and volunteering. It won’t let her change her old phone number to her new one - says the number is already in use. Having done some online research it seems people have had this issue for years with no replies from support!
Really needs ability to sync across devices
by jjsledge on 2019/06/18 16:52
One of the better group messaging apps out there. Especially if you have different phone softwares. Doesn’t really limit group size. My biggest issue is this. It doesn’t sync across my devices. I have it on my iPhone and iPad. I can read it on one of them, but the notification will still be active on the other. Can be really frustrating having to go back and forth between the two to clear notifications. Especially when the messages sync up fine.
Needs a Maybe button
by jturner08160816 on 2019/06/18 14:57
Needs a ‘maybe’ option for responding to calendar events. Otherwise no complaints!
Love - Hate Relationship
by Kel0095 on 2019/06/18 11:55
This is an overall good app. And I have a lot of groups set up in this app. But a couple issues that I wish you would improve. The ability to edit posts. It would be nice to correct spelling errors / remove pictures that mistakenly get posted. The ability to edit your groups without everyone being notified of edits. Deleting members or adding members especially. The ability to edit calendar events without everyone being notified as well. Basically editing anything without everyone being notified. A simple fix I am confident of the developers. 😊👍
Know what works? Email.
by Surly customer on 2019/06/18 02:49
This app might be nice if I wanted notifications whenever any member of the team has an ouchie on her toe. Because there’s no apparent way to distinguish important posts from those that aren’t, this would be useless even if it worked consistently. When teams have too many ways to communicate, communication suffers. I can’t see why a team needs anything other than an email list and calendar invitations.
Great way to connect
by lonnie and mike on 2019/06/17 23:01
This is a great way to connect with large groups. I love it. Our church uses it to keep in touch!
Mhm....

App malfunction
by effie1011 on 2019/06/15 22:35
My app immediately closes after I open it. This app is the only work communication we are allowed to use and I can’t get it to stay open long enough to even read the messages
My Chat members see me but I can’t see them.
by DJPETTAWAYOFFICIAL on 2019/06/15 19:30
I’ve been using GroupMe for YEARS! Never had any issues. Recently I was added to a group and I can’t see them but they see me. Only receive the SMS notifications. I checked settings, SMS only is not on. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled, powered phone on and off...STILL NOTHING. How can this be fixed?

GET THIS APP ASAP Read this if you are interested in getting this app!
by Sweet Skye on 2018/08/26 01:25
I loveeee group me! I love everything about it. The gifs, polls, calendar, GroupMe emojis, the ability to send videos and pictures, but there is one thing that I have been trying to change in settings for a while. Saving images taken on GroupMe. It’s soooo annoying to go back to my camera roll and delete the photos and videos that I don’t want saved on my camera roll, but I want sent to a group or DM in GroupMe. Please change this ASAP. I love practically everything except that one feature I mentioned. Also be aware that you can only DM or have a group chat with people that have GroupMe. That doesn’t seem to bother me much. If you are looking for a good group messaging and DM app, then you HAVE to get this app. I communicate with my family (and created a family chat), my friends, and it’s quick and easy! It’s hard to swoop by this app without getting it. Defiantly recommended!
Pretty good, with one complaint
by mamageorgiavan on 2019/02/26 06:09
This app works well and is excellent for large group chats for the most part. It’s easy to switch between groups and I’ve never had a problem with messages coming through or notifications. It’s been wonderful! HOWEVER, I really wish members could comment on a post. Instead, important messages get lost in a sea of responses and different topics so every conversation is an endless cycle of scrolling. If I want to look back at what someone said a few days ago (like when and where to meet, for instance) I have to scroll through every single message (and “lol”), instead of things being neatly nested so I can just scroll through topics. Other times, if other people start talking and I miss it I end up scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, scrolling back to see what on earth they’re even talking about and honestly, by the time I find it I usually just don’t even care anymore, I’m so numb by the search for the one little comment that started the whole conversation. I’ve tried using other apps because of this issue, but this app really is superior performance wise, except for this ONE thing. Developer Overlords, PLEASE, please let us thread comments so we can stop this endless scrolling!! I can’t take it much longer! But nice job on the app overall. There’s a reason I’ve held out so long.
Group name in notifications
by Kwame Family on 2018/01/26 07:26
Could y’all make it so that we can see which group a person belongs to in the notifications area? Specially the lock screen? Currently, if a GroupMe notification alerts your device, you only see the person’s name and not which group the person is from. It would be SOOO helpful, if I was able to see which group a person was chatting from without opening the app. For users involved in several groups with similar people, it’s critical to know which group the notification came from ASAP. iMessage has this feature and it is a lifesaver when you need to respond quickly. It’s like knowing it’s a friend from ‘hot yoga group’ asking about the last minute location change and not someone in your ‘biology study group’ asking were class is. Imagine being in different groups with people who have the same name! It’s so confusing when you read a message from John thinking it’s John your work supervisor when it’s really your best friend John sending you a picture of the roach he found in the bathtub. (Bc you cannot see pictures in the notifications which is another comment altogether). I still love this app! Best group messaging there is!
Great App, but could be even better
by jsmit5635 on 2017/09/20 14:43
This is a great app that I use every single day for a bunch of different group messages, but I feel like there are a few ways it could be improved to make it even more useful/ easier to use: Being able to view a picture from a notification without having to go into the app. It is very annoying to have to pull out my phone and go into the app to see the picture especially when I have an Apple Watch. It would be great to have an Apple Watch app to accommodate the iOS app. Along with being able to view a picture right from the notification this would be extremely useful with the new Apple Watch with cellular connectivity. Imagine if you are out going for a walk or run with just your Apple Watch Series 3 and someone sends you a picture. With the current system you would have to wait until you got home to view the picture. Another nice feature for the Apple Watch app would be the ability to see past messages instead of just the ones from notifications that go away when you tap on them. This would be just like how the messages app works on my Apple Watch.
Messages Not Showing. Edit. Edit again
by annaw2002 on 2019/01/18 04:49
I haven’t had a problem with this until today, but today I got message notifications for a group and could see the messages. But after a while, I was getting notifications but not seeing them when I opened the app. The time stamp shows the time of the most recent message (that I can’t see) in the group. Other than this, I have had no problems and enjoy the app. Edit: I deleted then re-logged into the app, and now I cannot see any of the messages in that group. However, I can still click on the group info and see the images, group members, etc. Also, other group messages and individual chats are unaffected by this. I would really appreciate it if this issue could be resolved soon. Thank you! Edit again: after this update, nothing happened. I still cannot see any messages in the one group (still other groups/messages seem to be unaffected). I get notifications for the group and can click on them, but it brings me to the “group chat” where it says no one has sent anything yet, even though I have gotten notifications. There have been some images sent and I can see those if I click on the button that lets you see all the images others have sent. Please fix!!!
Great, would love more admin privileges
by douglasallison12 on 2018/07/02 19:27
I work with students, teachers and other types of groups with leaders and so have several groups going. The app has helped with organization, collaboration and of course communication. I get more done because of GroupMe. It is so much more effective than email. My plea/suggestion is this: please allow chat admins to configure a chat so that only they can post messages and the rest of the group can “like” or participate in polls and such. With students, it’s easy to get chatter going that puts the number of messages into the hundreds and thousands and they’re just messing around. Then the substantive messages get lost so that the people who persevere have a terrible time sorting out the fluff from the real stuff while other people understandably set notifications to “do not disturb” or leave the chat altogether. I’d like to be able to set a chat with several dozen people for one-way communication and have another group where everyone can chatter and ask/answer questions. That would help my job a ton!
Locked Me Out!!! 😡🔐
by Sabor Místico on 2018/07/25 19:30
I have always used my email account to log into GroupMe, and have never had a problem before. However, now I am locked out of my account on all my iOS devices - even though I continue to receive all my alerts. It’s all tied to the phone number attached to my account. Ugh!! Additionally, having your phone number attached to your GroupMe account is insecure for us because anyone in the group can go into the settings and see it. It is perfectly possible to want to participate in a group chat without wanting to divulge your phone # to other participants. Did you never think of this? Such is the case with me - and to my chagrin there have been people who have used the app to find out my phone # and call me when I did not want that. So if security is your concern, why aren’t you addressing that? Finally, there are clearly far too many people locked out of our own accounts, and this isn’t a coincidence. It is all tied to a sign-in system rigidly tied to the use of our phone numbers - and it ISN’T working. Find us some workable solutions with better options because this is awful!! A one ⭐️ rating is much more than this app deserves at the this time.
Connecting
by Myke.M on 2019/01/12 12:46
I just wanted to say that I love your app first of all. It’s a great way to communicate with people. I just started using it matter fact it’s the only one that I signed up for I don’t use the computer that much anymore matter fact not at all during thing I use it for is to look up stuff I need for work and I’ve always was against Facebook and all the other stuff I thought it was too much but now I have your app and I use it to be connected with families for church and it lets me communicate with those people when I’m not at church and I love it for that. awesome company give up the good work I know people complain about certain apps they have where it they fail they are down they don’t work right well since I’ve been using this app never had a problem with anything nothing but five stars for me and two thumbs up...

Group me is one of the best apps I have been using to contact people. This app lets me contact people, it has its own emojis, and it’s perfect for people who don’t have apple. However, this app deletes messages that you are not really active in. It does help if your inbox is filled but if you want to save something it’s not really good. But on the other hand it makes sure that you are actively talking to people so that’s great! I recommend this app seriously unless you not into that “deleting” thing. I don’t even know if that is true but when I first tried it that is what people told me to be careful about so.... Also, GroupMe lets you see the messages that happened before you got into the chat. That’s great so you can catch up on what’s been going on. It also lets you change what people see your name as so your name can change depending on you not other people unless they are the ones putting you in a chat. But overall, GroupMe is a great app. I totally recommend. Bye! 👑👑👑🥳🥳🥳🔥🔥🔥😏😏😏💋💋💋💋💋
Bugs
by Holden14 on 2019/06/07 19:01
I’ve always used group me and am happy with it, however, I have had a lot of trouble adding people to the groups. In big group chats that have been around a long time, people do not want to leave the group me or create a new one usually because there are good memories in the group. On multiple occasions I have been unable to add someone back to a group, either because they have left in the past or because they were removed. I have experienced this issue as an admin and a normal user in a group, and if it happens to one person, nobody in the group has the ability to add that person back. If that person is a vital member of the group, the entire group chat gallery and messages are lost because we have to create a new one. This has happened enough times for me to write a review about it. I am unhappy that our previous groups’ memories have been lost and become inactive and wish I was able to start the old chats again by adding the previous members back.
Solid App
by Mymy7 on 2017/12/07 19:08
I wish there were some additional features to make this more customizable. For instance a “like” option or “thumbs up” option for different comments that people leave or a way to customize the background or appearance of the message board itself. Otherwise this is a great way to communicate with a group of people. I use this for my baseball team and it’s a great way to know who is commenting on what without having to put all their information into my phone and everyone else’s phone. It clearly shows who is commenting or asking questions. It even allows me to send a direct message to one or two of the people inside the entire group without having to say certain things to everyone on the group chat. I also use this separately for my coaches so we can discuss things we need to work on in practice or cover before games. Overall I like the app and recommend it to other people.
Navigating Help is Terrible
by vivianspits on 2018/01/28 18:33
I received an email that my account was changed over to another email, which was not done by me. I clicked on the link provided to indicate that this is an issue, and their “help page” does not have any link specific to the issue. Still trying to solve the problem, I emailed their support email with a quick little blurb about what’s going on and a screenshot of the email I received from them. My email got sent back for being too large, although it had less than a paragraph and one normal sized screenshot image. This experience has been excessively complicated and my problem is not resolved. I am now sitting with concern about having some random person accessing my account. Upon redownloading the app, it is only allowing me to create a new account rather than having any option to log in with a previously made account. I’ve had to spend way more time and energy than is necessary, and still have not been able to get through the process. I’m a 22 year old college student, so I’m fairly competent with technology, but this is ridiculous.
Great, but one suggestion!
by Asit2 on 2017/12/19 06:17
This app is by far the best when it comes to large group communication. Not overbearing with excessive notifications due to the mute options but still fun enough to form a sense of unity within the group. However, as somebody who primarily uses this app for a mixture of business and fun, important messages can easily get lost in the daily jokes and conversation. I wish there was a way to have an announcements board where only admins or group leaders can post. Everyone, even those who have the group muted, will be notified immediately (or have this as a separate option “mute all except announcements”). Or a way to pin the announcement at the top of everyone’s messages until the leader/admin sees it fit to remove. This would greatly enhance my group’s communication without having to resort to numerous emails or a separate app.
Launching via lock screen
by Cjf_15 on 2018/04/02 19:59
When I receive a message and tap on it to pull up the app, it needs to switch to the chat feed to which the message I’m replying to belongs. It does no good to be able to switch to the app by tapping on a message I get from a person/group if the active thread is going to remain on whichever person/group I was using last. Very frustrating to have to remember to double check which thread I’m in when I just tapped on a message from a particular person/group. It would stand to reason that if I tap on a lock screen message from, say, my wife, that it would switch to my chat feed with her when the app comes up and not remain in, say, the group chat feed I have with colleagues if that’s the group to which I last sent a message. Please fix this
This app is full of crap.
by nerd in more ways than one on 2018/04/01 23:27
Okay. I use groupme for one reason: it doesn’t require every member in a group chat to have group chat abilities on their device. That being said, it’s a load of crap. I hate it. If someone hasn’t responded, for one, they may not be getting the messages. Second, if *I* set up this group chat, and put these people on it, that means I have their contact information, so if they don’t want to be on it anymore, LET US TAKE CARE OF IT. IT IS NOT FOR THE APP TO DECIDE WHETHER THESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT TO BE A PART OF THE GROUP. Some people are also content to receive the messages and not reply. It’s a thing, believe it or not. Let the members of the group chat deal in their own affairs, and stop making assumptions, especially TWO SECONDS after I just deleted someone and put them back on FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF ALLOWING THEM TO SEE THE NOTIFICATIONS AGAIN!!! Honestly! Either cut that out or at least make it easier for someone to discontinue the discontinuation of notifications. This is an awful app and y’all whoever designed this piece of crap needs to get it fixed.
Love the app, but would love more grouping options
by kwagnes on 2017/12/10 00:09
I use this app daily for work.. it is a great tool to keep connected and not loose touch. I like that it doesn’t consume a great deal of my storage on my phone. It is also nice to have a long running record of the conversations that have been had. It allows for me to add and remove people as needed and not miss a beat in the conversation. The only thing I would LOVE to see is to be able to make master groups. I have over 30 chats going, and that is just for work... It would be great to make a group and then have subgroups. I have groups with each manager that I work with and then they also have groups with the shops that they work with (team chat groups) I always have to be very cautious to not send the message to the manager in the group for the team. It would just organize things every better.
Makes Life Easier
by Phoneless Freshmen on 2017/11/28 22:02
I'm a freshmen in high school and am an active member of student council...but I don't have an IPhone, just an IPod. Because of this, it is difficult for me to keep in contact with my group members. GroupMe helped a lot because it allowed us all to communicate with each other easily so no one falls behind. You can attach different events to the calendar so everyone in your chat knows and can send pictures with each other. One thing that I've noticed is trouble in inviting certain people, meaning it says you've "invited them" but they can't get in. If you have this problem, I recommend different people try to add you, not just one person over and over again. It's very simple and great for school activities like this.
Great, but still room for immediate improvement
by Mindrunner88 on 2018/02/27 00:14
Love the apps ability to more efficiently control group communication and perform such from my computer while sending over SMS (not just the messaging platform). That said, there is an obvious improvement that they intentionally leave out. If people I think he group don’t’ accept the invitation to stay a part of the group, they are automatically removed from SMS (text) messages from the group. In short, they use an Opt In platform rather than Opt Out, which would be so much better! I use this for large group messages with parents who aren’t always super savvy or aware of the “Opt In” procedure, so I keep ending up with parents not receiving messages, leaving having to go back to text messages to make up for it. Annoying! Make it an Opt-Out structure and this is a clear 5 Stars!
Pretty decent app; has some challenges
by American in Hong Kong on 2019/06/10 16:52
It's great to share experiences, pics, and vids with my family and friends x-platform, x-carrier, and around the world. Flexible app with reasonable functionality. Significant challenges include 1) can't delete or edit comments - just hide them, which only hides it on the individual side; 2) it would be very nice if tech support at least acknowledged that we send them emails, and responded within six months; 3) at times it's difficult to invite new GroupMe users to a direct message - can only add them to a group message; 4) impossible to search within a discussion/conversation without painfully scrolling back through the chat to find the reference you are looking for; 5) no exporting/printing capability which would be especially good from a family history or team dynamics perspective.
Awful performance issues
by TechNickViews on 2018/06/15 12:55
I am always disappointed when I am forced to re-download GroupMe for other people. It’s performance while not on WiFi is absolutely abysmal. I often receive messages in my notifications bar from other group members. Then when I navigate to the group chat the messages, they are not there. I try to memorize the message in the notification bar if it is short enough to understand how to reply. Sometimes it takes up a few minutes for them to display In the chat. I can sometimes get it to show faster if I try to force a refresh. This lag has resulted in me not only missing messages but also leaving people behind on trips. I use telegram, signal, iMessage, discord, WhatsApp, and messenger. None of them have the performance issues that GroupMe does while on cell service. I don’t understand why this app is so highly rated when it has such critical issues on a modern iPhone. If GroupMe’s user base wasn’t so large I wouldn’t have to keep downloading it.
I don’t want much
by omihek on 2019/03/07 01:46
Update: just reposting this review for the latest update All I want is to be able to delete a one-on-one chat with someone. That’s all. I don’t want to “hide” it. I don’t want to “clear” it. I want to straight up delete it. It obviously wouldn’t delete it from their device, just mine. And then what would happen if they messaged me again? Oh it would behave like every other messaging app ever made and just create a new chat with the person on my device. And then when we were done chatting, I could delete it again, just like that. I don’t feel like I’m asking too much, but then again I’m no developer, so maybe I am. Maybe deleting stuff is near impossible. Apple somehow figured it out. I can delete any conversation I want from iMessage. But then they are known for their “it just works” way of doing things. You guys should ask them how they do it. Send them a kind, humble email asking them how in the world they figured out how to delete a chat in iMessage. Please, do it for me.
New update created new frustrations
by ba6600 on 2018/08/17 21:13
While for the most part the app works good, the new update has become somewhat annoying. Overall the appearance is clean and runs smooth but I have 2 gripes. 1. Why do timestamps happen so frequently now (or at all honestly) between comments. I’ve seen a string of 3 comments in a group all get time stamped yet were posted within 5 minutes of each other. I don’t care that much about when someone posted a comment especially when I can click on it and get the exact time it was posted. 2. When posting links (especially Instagram) why is the spacing so messed up, the name and avatar hover over the top of the link posted. It was perfect before but now there’s an annoying overlay. 3. Why must I put my first and last name into the profile in setting? Especially since I can just change my name in any group anyways. 4. At times since the update there will be a weird spacing issue from a new comment on the bottom and between the box to type. Not always but still very annoying when it does happen. Willing to change star rating if things are explained or corrected.
Baffled
by tfwappleappstoredoesntevenwork on 2018/02/14 01:26
I am actually baffled by how awful this app is. It simply does not work when a chat is active. It fails to fill its most basic purpose. A user of a messaging app should be able to read messages as they are coming in, ESPECIALLY an app whose primary purpose is group chats. The app spazzes or jumps to random places in the chat or freezes altogether when other people are sending messages in the chat. When I try to type a message, my entire phone freezes and I can’t even see the message as I type it. I have to wait fifteen seconds to see it on my screen. This is definitely not a hardware problem as I have no issues like this using whatsapp or telegram. I really hope this review is seen and taken seriously because this app has some extreme problems with its most basic functionality; it’s essentially unusable way too often. Are you not using views to optimize performance and resource use??? I just don’t understand. Sooo frustrating please do something!!
Love the app, how do you make small suggestions that would make a huge improvement
by Hat 1981 on 2018/04/04 13:41
I love this App and it allows me to communicate with the parents of all the teams easily and quickly. As a parent when we’ve used it, the one thing I find difficult is once a coach sends out a message, every parent responds, sometimes leading to multiple conversations and sometimes making it difficult to scroll back and determine the actual message the coach was trying to get across. There should be an option to have only coach be able to communicate on that thread, and responses be seen only by the coach or just where the communication happens in direct messaging or the responses bullet point off where the original message is clear and easy to follow! Otherwise great app!
Specific Date Feature
by Gabriela R. Perez on 2018/01/18 15:36
The app is really convenient and I use it everyday! Especially for chatting with my friends who live in different parts of the world. It would be really nice to have an option where you could look up a certain date in the chat. Meaning that if you want to look at a specific photo taken or just recall a great moment in the chat, it would make it easier to have an option that lets you search by month, day, year, or if you know the exact date you can just type it in. This would be much simpler than scrolling up or even searching through the gallery looking for that one photo. Especially if you have a chat that’s active almost 24/7. I’d really love to see this feature implemented in the app in the near future.
I was removed
by basketballer12345678 on 2018/08/09 15:50
OK so… I got removed from the group chat that I was in because my coach had to change my name to make it right and she re-added me but now my group won’t show up on the group me app so I can’t get back into it and we can’t figure out how I can get back into it without her we adding me thousand times because she’s already added me twice over and over and the Groupon show up so I can’t get into it and we can’t figure out what to do about it so if you could just tell me what I could do to get back into the group that I was removed from it would be great thank you this app is amazing I love it it’s good for groups it’s good for direct message it’s good for everything really thank you for making it
Good app, spam accounts
by HollyBissell on 2019/04/04 15:30
I’ve used GM throughout my highschool years and so far my freshman and sophomore year of college but starting last fall around December in all of my chats even private ones, spam accounts would manage to slither in and blow up the chats with fake essay writing services. Like I’m talking if you leave the chat alone for 15 minutes all of a sudden 8 spam accounts will have joined and posted the same exact post/link. I can get rid of them as an admin but they keep joining back. I’ve doubled down on privacy and who I accept but somehow people manage to get into a chat that I never accepted. Most recently it will say a bunch of people joined a chat, but they don’t show up in the members so I can’t remove them now. They’re just there, waiting until 2 more weeks when they’re gonna explode every single chat. Help please
YES, YES!

I’ve been an active GroupMe user for several years and it has never failed! Extremely reliable, it now provides day and night mode, and puts me in contact with everyone, even without their phone number! My only complaint would be that people I have been in one chat with do not show when I want to add them to an exclusive chat. I believe that’s part to do with the coding of the software, as this particular thing works if I’ve been in two chats or more with a person. Other than that, it is an amazing tool and I recommend it whenever I’m working with someone on a university project. 100% recommend for everyone to have installed on their phone!
Unable to use any longer
by reneetu on 2018/07/13 14:36
1) Whatever updates have transpired I am no longer able to add users to groups. They just don’t show up for me to add like they used to. Did a synch on contacts with groupme seems like it made it worse. I have to ask others members to add them now. Frustrating. Kinda giving up. 2) Also frustrating groupme randomly pops up all single person groups making a big mess with multiple singles groupmes that I don’t want displayed. So I then have to go individually HIDE CHAT. 3) But then that option HIDE CHAT is not available for every groupme so then. I’m stuck with all of these groupmes displayed on phone. Cludgy.. 3) would be nice for individual person groupmes to not just randomly pop up (all of them) I know this is a free app and it is nice but just wanted to input what’s making it unusable now.
Solid app but needs updates
by Capibaby on 2017/12/13 22:08
Let me start by saying the app is great but definitely has limitation. Messaging sometimes freezes up causing delays. Or it will skip trying to send a message altogether. Also I’ve noticed when trying to share a link from another source it doesn’t always send. Also the fact you can’t delete anything is obnoxious. Old groups / DMs and photos just makes the app annoying. I have to hide a conversation if it’s no longer valid but I can’t just delete like I can in WhatsApp, Text or literally any other application. We use this app for our church group and sometime you get a separate message that’s not important. It would be nice to be able to clear up space and simply be able to delete. Other than that the app works well and is functional.
I love GroupMe! One suggestion.
by DevinDash on 2017/08/29 15:36
I love GroupMe! I use it for every collaboration project at school and work because of the convenience that it adds. The most convenient tool is that I can create a group with a specific name so I know exactly who I'm talking to and for what project. This eliminates searching through my everyday messaging app for the names of members of my group. One addition that I think would expand the app is a feature that allows group leaders to show members how to join. For example, text "custom message" to "#####." I know this would make it convenient for people to join groups I create that are for the purpose of sending reminders about events, assignments, or projects.
Innovative. All around great!
by NikkiLovesBabyDrake on 2019/02/15 03:25
This app is great! Other than simply having a chat session, I love that you get set up your notification ringtone on top of being able to control the notifications. I love that you can have multiple groups going. Haven’t had any problem with glitches so far either... Connects to everyone in your contacts if you want it too & shows who is in every group. I like that it’s up to date and shows every little thing—such as who adds a new member, who they added, and when.. You can transfer ownership. And even for the less tech-savvy out there, it’s easy to navigate, set up, and use on a daily basis! 😊 Love it!!
Few bugs, but all in all a good app
by fyreous on 2017/12/02 14:21
This app is great for helping to facilitate more reliable group communications among people who have different OS platforms on their smartphones. But I do have a couple of suggestions for improvement: 1. The app ALWAYS opens in portrait orientation, even if the iPhone / iPad is on it’s side. In order to rotate it to landscape, I have to rotate my device to portrait and back to landscape in order for the app to register the orientation change. I’d like to see a fix implemented that detected the device orientation on launch and automatically adjusts, without the need to manually “kick” it to the right layout. 2. I’m not sure if this fix is possible, but I’d love that if I read a message on one device or the desktop app, the other instances of the GroupMe app on my other devices registered those message(s) as read, and removed the notification. Currently, I have to open the app on each device in order for messages to be marked as read on that device. 3. I do wish the character limit on messages could be extended. Currently, longer text posts have to be broken up into multiple pieces to post them in a group. It would be great if this limit could be extended.
Muting without going into the app
by Pilotsmallz on 2018/05/23 01:59
On Facebook messenger you have the ability to mute for an hour from the notification itself. Normally I would use Facebook messenger but for some reason people prefer this app. Could there be an easier way to mute the app without going into the app itself? And perhaps have it in 1 hour/ 5 hour intervals? Also, messenger no longer vibrates with each message after a number of consecutive messages, this is something I would love to have on this app because I can’t tell you how much I love feeling my phone vibrate over and over and over for 30 minutes, wasting my battery. These are all features that can be resolved by going into the app, but messenger makes the process so much easier and I think GroupMe can apply similar techniques.
GroupMe Review
by doodle_bug225 on 2017/11/16 04:33
GroupMe is an app that helps friends and family contact each other without having to know each other's number. It works by searching up ur friends or you can access your contact to see if any of them have the app. Once you have selected the person you wish to contact you can chose to make it a private conversation or an open conversation where you can add anyone you like. Over all it is a pretty good app it have. It openeds the way to new friendships and relationship. The only thing that I do not like about the app is that when ever your Ina group text, other people can take you out of the group and that you get every notification from the group text. Other than that I think it's a great app that everyone should have. November 15,2017
Very Good For Groups (Duh)
by Asphalt racer 2016 on 2019/06/07 01:33
Ok, so first of all let me say I enjoy this app as a counterpart to texting groups and such. I even prefer it to iMessage because the navigation is so intuitive. It's a perfectly good app, and I recommend downloading it over Skype or something. However, one thing that would make it better, would be if for a direct message, you could make a contact for them, so if they are a close friend you have a nickname for, you could for instance, name 'Kelly' Potato or whatever weird name you have for them 😂. It wouldn't change anything on their side; their group name and universal name wouldn't change at all. Other than some development opportunities, great app that I would definitely recommend to anyone. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Pretty good!
by (I) Stan (many groups) on 2018/07/30 19:14
This app is ingenious. The meming option is hilarious, and I find the emojis very funny; to whoever put in that options, you got a chuckle out of me. It’s much less confusing when looking at group messages, rather than my iPhones usual iMessage. And I love how this can also work for other types of mobile phones. However, I do find that I either don’t get notifications or I receive them much later. I also find it annoying when I check said notifications, they won’t load sometimes and I have to close out the app to see them. But these are minor things that I’m sure could be fixed in a later update. All in all though, this is definitely an app that I would recommend to my friends!
New add user option
by KaleighCat on 2018/02/21 21:27
I think there should be an ‘add user by email’ option. I think this would be useful especially in school or work settings where someone might know others’ school or work email address but not necessarily their phone number. When a new user registers their number, they could be given the option, “Would you like to register your school/work email?” If the security of this option is a concern, perhaps only people with the same email domain could add you by email. i.e. only someone in the same company or same school could be added by email. Hope to see this option in the future!
Works Well
by Frank 🚒 on 2018/02/16 23:20
EDIT: I discovered this was due to the iOS character crash; a user had placed the faulty character in chat group causing the app to become inoperable. After removing the group from the desktop version and re-downloading the app it now works fine. GroupMe, I tried contacting you via HelpDesk, but you don’t seem to have any tech support info. I am currently running 5.15.1 on iOS 11.2.5, and am unable to access the app at all, as it crashes immediately upon opening. I have tried resetting my phone and re-downloading the app to no avail. I rely on GroupMe heavily for business, so please help as quickly as possible. Thank you!
Good, but had some difficulties
by qrhennrv on 2018/11/14 01:52
It’s a great app for groups to use to stay in touch without giving everyone’s phone numbers away. I recently had a hard time with changing a phone number in the settings. It wouldn’t let me since my new phone number was already receiving massages on a different account that was created (which I didn’t know) when I was added to a group with my new phone rather the email I had set an account up with. In the end, I had to create a new account with a new email to get the messages to send to the app, rather than through SMS. Now that this has been fixed, all my problems have been solved. I was, however, disappointed that the help websites weren’t very clear and in the end left me quite frustrated.
Needs a Bug Fixed
by alnima14 on 2017/09/14 17:40
I always use this app on my iPad and I have a keyboard case, making it so my iPad is always rotated (landscape). Whenever I open this app, it still comes up as it the iPad were upright (portrait). It is quite aggravating because I want to read messages and type at the same time but that can only be done if I tilt my head as far as possible. Other than that, the app is pretty awesome and lets me have group chats with all of the other students in the same lab/lecture with me. Great for large groups and the best part is nobody will have your personal number. Because of the annoying bug, I knocked two stars off. However, the app works awesome on my phone (I don't have to tilt my phone because my keyboard is not detached from my phone)
Just a couple things
by danipo49 on 2018/10/25 14:47
Really great app. Works amazing if you actually have the app. I have friends though who don’t have smartphones and on their end, this way of group messaging is terrible. But I don’t really know how you would fix that. One thing you could fix though is being able to delete conversations you don’t need anymore. I messaged my band director on here once to let him know my metronome didn’t have the exact tempo I needed for my music test. That was two years ago and I STILL. HAVE IT. Other than that it’s super. Love that you can create surveys, and events, and it’s so easy to see who can come and who can’t.. love it. But PLEASE let me clean out my messages instead of just “hiding” them.
Pretty good except needs more controls
by Husl2014 on 2017/08/23 17:33
I have at least 7 or 8 active GroupMe groups and it is much better than using group texts because I can remove myself whenever I want, I can mute it. I also appreciate the gallery with all our previously shared photos. However, I wish there was a way to make sure that I'm replying to the right group. With so many, it's easy to accidentally say something about drinking on Friday night to the women in my church group. Lol. Also, for groups that are really active- I'd love to be able to organize the conversation in some way so I can catch-up on what I missed while I was actually working without reading through 6 hours of gifs and tangents.
Phone Number
by keland02 on 2019/02/15 20:16
I do have a GroupMe account and I love the app. But there is one thing I don’t really like. You have to have a phone number to have an account. I don’t have a phone or a phone number so I had to sign in under my mother’s account so no one knows of it’s me or her. She also gets my private texts that she doesn’t want to be in but, because it’s under her account she doesn’t have a choice. It’s the same on my end. IS THERE A WAY FOR ME TO LOG IN WITHOUT A PHONE NUMBER? If there is please tell me ASAP ‘cuz it’s getting a little annoying. Thanks! I still love the app either way and will continue to use it! Thanks again!
Notifications for one group, but not another? Does that option exist?
by Icosace1022 on 2018/09/03 20:12
Like, my friends uses GroupMe as a place for our college club to keep informed on our schedule and events. I posted something about myself in the chat, ‘cause I made friends, but other people might have thought I was spamming the group. So, I started to talk to only some friends from the club; I wish I could have notifications and banners for a few, but not the main group. If there’s already a setting in the app that can help me, that’s cool. I’ll look this up online. But this app really helps when you don’t have peoples’ numbers. Thanks for reading, I know I might have got carried away in my own story.
Bugs need fixed!
by lissaleigh919 on 2018/02/16 06:53
I love this app and as a college student I use it often! However, here lately I continuously get a notification saying my message can not be delivered even at times I’m just reading messages and not sending any. I get glitches that say I have no connection and my messages won’t send for at least five minutes and that’s only after I try and try repeatedly. I rely on this app for many clubs and groups I am part of but am very disappointed in the performance lately. I have even stayed up to date with updates including a recent one that was supposed to rid the message not sent glitch, but sadly mine has just become worse. Really would like to see this fixed so I can enjoy the app once again!
Great app but needs improvement
by Jarod1118 on 2019/07/02 13:25
The app works great and is very useful. However, if you wanted it to be used as an informational platform, I wouldn’t recommend it. Anyone can post on the thread and information shared gets lost on the endless responses by group members. The developers should add a feature in settings that allows anyone to post or just administrator of group to post. Another annoying feature is having to see everyone’s acceptance to a calendar invite. Again, should be a feature that only the administrator can see who accepts the calendar invite. Overall, the app is very useful but can definitely use some improvements.
Bugs and Missing Features
by vlad the nan on 2018/09/28 14:00
This app was originally a great upgrade from iPhone group messaging which couldn’t easily include androids and from fb messenger which was clunky. However, as time has passed bugs and missing features have made the app inferior to other options such as Slack. The bug I’m referring to is the inability to access group settings (group name and avatar) for certain iOS users. Once they fix this bug I’d add a star to my rating. Missing features refers primarily to the inability to search for a specific message within a group chat. This is relatively simple functionality that the groupme team seems to have overlooked. If the app were to fix the bug and add this feature, I’d give it 4 or 5 stars but unfortunately it only deserves 2 in its current state.
The app is okay but could be much better
by Blessedforlife1 on 2017/09/25 16:53
The biggest issue that I am having right now is the fact that I use group me on my iPad the majority of the time and for some reason it always takes a long time for the app to go from portrait to landscape mode. Sometimes it just wont turn at all, and then my other issue is that I wish the app could sync with my phone. There are times when I open messages on my phone and then go on my iPad to still see all the notifications from that same message there and the same things happens when I view messages from my iPad. Also the auto brightness thing doesn’t work on my iPad. The app itself is okay but could be much better
