Group Avatar Won’t Change
by Al_8 on 2020/10/24 12:35
Since the new update to GroupMe. The group avatar will not change. You can select the pic and hit save, and it goes back to the previous avatar. 😢
I hate that I have to use this for school
by emfrankie on 2020/10/23 21:22
Half the groups go to my phone as texts even though I have it set to be in the app, and even when it sun the app it doesn’t let me send photos. Very frustrating.
Crashing
by MikeOksbigg on 2020/10/23 20:40
Started crashing and the app support has nothing useful to fix it. Also takes a long time to connect and update.
Won’t open
by emilyemilyemilyyyyy on 2020/10/23 05:27
App will not open on iPad. It just open and closes immediately. Everything is update, deleted, reinstalled, cleared cache and cookies and nothing. Very frustrating.
1 Request
by markt4life on 2020/10/22 20:54
Love this app! Use it all the time for work and social groups. Just find it annoying after every update all my chats that were hidden unhindered after an update. Would be great if I could just delete chats completely without having to hide. Other than that great app.
Awesome app

The app now crashes every time I open a group and it takes me forever to read my messages!!
Only 1 complaint
by mmrosey on 2020/10/21 14:42
I use this app for so many groups! I love it and it works amazing for 95% of communications. My only complaint is the search feature. I wish there was a way to search by member. For example, I know I saw a message by someone but I can’t find it - even with the search feature. But if I could filter by member messages it would help. Other than that it’s 5 stars
Keeps quitting on me
by Jamesb0926 on 2020/10/21 13:54
If I have this app open for more than about thirty seconds is quits and I have to reopen it. Super annoying. It has been doing it for weeks. I was hoping a patch would fix it but so far no good.
Review
by destine lakel on 2020/10/21 12:38
The app is good really for communication for businesses but you need to be able to write more instead of having to break up important information into serval different messages
It keeps crashing every 20 seconds
by A.D.R.. on 2020/10/20 21:51
Im not able to read or type much, because the app crashes every 15-20 seconds. Please fix this.
Will not open
by LeahS&S2001 on 2020/10/20 19:08
After installing it for the first time, it worked fine. But as soon as I make an account and sign in, it crashes! And it will crash every time I try opening it. Not even reinstalling it works, cuz it crashes after that too! Unless the problem is fixed, this app is trash!
This is great!!
by KelleyCakes on 2020/10/20 18:10
I enjoy being able to get in touch with my co workers @ Kohl’s right @ my finger tips, it truly is a game changer!

Messages not showing up
by Sam692531 on 2020/10/19 22:49
Even when notifications show up, I can’t see any new messages until 15 or 30 minutes after they are sent. I updated the app, deleted it and reinstalled, signed out multiple times, and it’s still lagging and glitching. Extremely disappointing.
Deleted a group I was in
by TeeJayy323232 on 2020/10/19 14:27
Out of no where a group I was actively in is no longer showing. Not sure why. It started after the latest app update. My iPhone is on iOS 14.01

Love the GroupMe app. Just need more options than the heart. Sometimes these group messages are super funny or super stupid. We more options please
Constant crashes iPad Pro second gen
by Its my CC... on 2020/10/19 00:15
Groupme is basically my main social network and gaming hang so it’s very annoying to have a consistent force close every 5 minutes on my iPad Pro.
Keeps telling me my phone number is invalid.
by RedRoseAlways on 2020/10/18 11:43
Every time I try to sign up it tells me my phone number is invalid. I’ve only been using it for the past fifteen or more years. Lol. Uninstalled.
Force closing
by cplatinumlove on 2020/10/18 05:15
Just installed this app on a new up to date ipad. It initially let me sign in and then once I verified it started force closing. No matter what it continues to force close, even after uninstalling and reinstalling several times.
Love the app!!
by Toriranco on 2020/10/17 21:35
I love this app so much. It makes things so much easier. The only thing I wish you could do is dislike messages.

A glitch when you start - but it’s good afterwards
by Christopher.12 on 2020/10/17 02:43
I made an account on GroupMe, but it didn’t seems to work, I though it was connection - but it wasn’t, I missed a lot of texts of people I was wanting to talk to. After a day it finally worked, I was able to see messages and saw how much I missed. But it is a really great app.

App crash
by Chazly244 on 2020/10/15 17:44
Lately (few weeks) the app will not let me be on it for more than 35 seconds until it crashes. Very annoying
It’s ok
by K9paine on 2020/10/15 16:47
As far as doing it’s job? It’s a solid app. If you need a way to form a chat for a group project or something to that nature, I recommend it. However, it’s missing a couple of features that every chat app should have. Example being the ability to delete conversations. Especially when your inbox gets spammed by bots. That’s my main motivation for never really using this app unless I have to. Also, there aren’t any privacy settings on the app, so fair warning.
Terrible for iPad
by W - T.R. on 2020/10/15 16:41
This works just fine fir iPhone, however anytime you try to use it with your iPad it immediately shuts down. I’ve never been able to use it with my iPad. Ever.
We need a dislike button
by RaeShawn15 on 2020/10/15 04:08
Love the app but I would just really like to be able to dislike a message. A bunch of people agree with me and we would just like to show the people that we disagree with what they said

Great idea but horrible tech support
by LyphBB on 2020/10/14 19:28
Downloaded the app, verified my college email, but I’m registered by GroupMe under the wrong university! Tried uninstalling/ re-registering, and no luck. Tried customer support. First time someone reached out and ask me about a group ID. Responded I just wanted to be put under the correct university. No response. Tried a second support request, no response. Is it so hard to be placed under the correct university? My email is “@(university).edu”. There really isn’t any guess work involved. 1/5 stars because I can’t use it with my actual university. (My classmates do not have this problem).
I love Group me but...
by Rezhon on 2020/10/14 19:04
2 suggestions, For some reason my app constantly crashes. Make a quicker way to delete chats
Good but missing somethings
by MrMattisonfire on 2020/10/14 18:06
First the option to delete messages would be nice. Sometimes I try my best to response to people quickly and I end up typos. This happened a few times to me and other people. The option to hide a message from the whole group would be nice. Additionally. Being able to pin messages. Sometimes we send files like PDFs to one another. I end up losing it amongst the conversation. Implementing those two would be great :)
Fix crashing issue

App crashes constantly
by 10100111001 on 2020/10/14 14:43
It frequently takes multiple attempts to read messages from neighbors because of the of crashes. It seems to happen in the first 20 seconds or so. I’m considering uninstalling and using the website to see if it’s more stable. Please read your crush reports and do something, this is sad!
Constant crashes
by Menchies on 2020/10/14 05:46
I don’t know what happened, but over the last few months the app has started crashing a lot more frequently. I’ve noticed this on all my devices including my iPhone 11 and iPad Pro 3rd gen. I’ve asked a few of my other friends if they’ve experienced this, and they agree. Most of the time it’s random or when I open up the app and there’s a lot of messages.
Doesn’t. Work on iPad
by mgw82 on 2020/10/14 01:30
The app. Works great on my android phone but does nothing but immediately crash on my 5th gen iPad mini. Open the app and it immediately crashes and closes. It’s the latest version as far as I can tell as it’s what is downloaded from the App Store. iPad is running iOS 14.0.1

Unable to add needed members from my contact file

No help on how to add needed members
Best option available, but could use a few improvements.
by 16thNotes16 on 2020/10/13 12:28
I’ve been using GroupMe for a couple years now and it’s fantastic, probably the best group communication app on the market currently (second to Discord, but you’ll not be using that with most groups since it’s targeted for gamers). I think the only things missing that I think is somewhat odd to not have is a group ping and pinned messages. It’s irritating to have to select and type out every single name of every person you want to announce to, especially on more frivolous chats that people keep muted. Pins also is a need, as important messages are soon lost in the miasma of other discussion. If GroupMe adds these, they’ll get five starts, but until then it’s a 4 star app in my book.
Great app just wish it didn’t send iMessages AND GroupMe messages.
by sunshineflowerrainbowcloud on 2020/10/13 03:00
Just show messages in GroupMe instead of blowing up both the app and my iMessages.
Pin or Favorite Option
by jaeriley on 2020/10/13 00:04

GroupMe support scam
by kelsieshfkf on 2020/10/12 18:56
I keep having to block the same contact over and over again and it’s not stopping. Every few hours it’s the same message about an iPhone 11 but it’s so obviously spam. The app is fine but figure out how to keep these spam messages in check or just allow users to report them because the block feature is obviously not working.
Very good
by Odysseus17 on 2020/10/12 14:12
Pretty good app, but can you guys make the polls have the option to not be anonymous
Use for work
by Rexneffex H on 2020/10/12 13:34
We use this to communicate in multiple groups for work. It does a great job. Might have to reinstall every month or so, but it saves all the messages so it’s fine. Much better than texting/ emailing everything.
Great app, but
by Cuzurbad on 2020/10/11 21:18
Please fix the crashing issue that has been around for years!
One little thing
by NoZzLeNuT36 on 2020/10/11 20:40

Great chap

Needs Apple Watch Support
by Testament on 2020/10/11 17:21
The app is pretty good overall however it really could benefit from Apple watch integrations. I'm often in a situation at work where viewing and responding via the phone isn't ideal or really possible. Being able to view and reply via watch would be fantastic. One other thing is that if a message fails to send due to connectivity issues it doesn't attempt to resend from what I've noticed. It just hangs there in limbo. If that could be resolved it would be very helpful. Other than that it's a solid app.

Won’t let you create account

What good is an app that doesn’t allow you to create an account. Tried a dozen times and it doesn’t allow you in.
Love this is app! Use it on a daily basis for my business!
by RVP_Hans on 2020/10/10 20:49
The only thing I would love to see on this app would be to have like a “edit post” People tend to make A LOT of typos lol

by wacklesnap on 2020/10/09 19:25
There’s way too many bugs. I get notifications for private messages that don’t show up! Both on the web and on this app. Half the features are flaky at best. Very disappointing for an app that used to be a lifesaver in college.

This app is good for texting but if you want to be a social person and actually call someone you have to download Skype which takes more time and energy than I could ever have. I don’t have the patience for this people need to make it so I can video call my people without an extra app..... hate to be a Karen but I need the manager 👁👄👁

Not Necessarily Inclusive
by courfeyracandroll on 2020/10/08 00:12
It would be AWESOME if GroupMe would stop notifying groups when names are changed within groups! It’s hard for individuals who want to change their name without their legal/deadname being displayed during the name change. Please please please change this!
Crashes quite a bit
by KANGELLE on 2020/10/07 16:12
This app is great for collaborating on projects and communicating with large groups. The only thing is that it crashes after switching to different groups quite often:(

Today alone I have received over 10 messages from accounts claiming to be groupme support saying i've been selected to win an iphone 11. i've blocked all, but still continue to receive messages. this needs to stop, and there needs to be a way for me to report these accounts. i'm sick of opening the app to messages like this and will be deleting the app if it doesn't stop.

by joshwcorbett on 2020/10/04 22:48
This is by far the most poorly designed and ill-functioning app I’ve ever used to simply chat among coworkers. I don’t understand why an organization wouldn’t choose discord over this junk. I’ve experienced endless crashes, poor accessibility practices, poor adaptation to iOS 14, and terrible user experience overall. My company uses this and it gives me one more reason not to work there. Use discord, not this junk.
Third party phone numbers support
by Benjamin Feld on 2020/10/04 21:15
Since I don’t have a phone and instead an iPod, I use an app called TextNow which gives you a phone number to use to call/text people. A phone number is required to use this app, and I tried putting my third party number in, but it doesn’t work. Can you update this so you can use third party phone numbers with it?
It's great! But...

Unreliable messaging.
by Zombified jelly on 2020/10/03 23:38
The app does not sync well across 2/3 of my devices. The two devices with issue are tablet and phone. The notifications stall and then appear one one device or the other but not both. Chat is even worse with the messages that won’t refresh.

You should have the option to coffee pot… Or single out an individual to message. I can’t figure it out does it seem like it’s as easy to use as it should be. But I love the concept.
Great app! Missing ONE thing 🤞
by haley alexandra on 2019/11/21 02:31
I LOVE GroupMe. I use it for groups at school, at work, and for one-on-one conversations as well. All around, it’s great. It has a clean user interface, it’s fast, in real time. I love being able to add gifs, polls, videos, pictures, etc to our chats. My only irks as far as videos and pictures go is the quality is LOW. I recommend taking videos or picture outside of the app on your normal camera and uploading, versus using the in app GroupMe camera. I’ve also found that pictures uploaded still lose quality, so if there’s any small text then zooming in on it is just not worth it since it will end up blurry. Outside of that, I have no complaints for the media, etc. The ONLY thing I wish this app would offer is PINNED messages. I run multiple chats for work, and being able to pin/star/etc important messages for everyone to access and refer back to would be AMAZING. I think this would be a great feature to offer to admins of groups. You can search most popular messages, but this is not always useful if the messages that need to be seen by new members, etc, are too far back in the chat to be relevant in the popular messages anymore. If this feature was added, GroupMe would take the cake for, in my opinion, the best group messaging app. Outside of this, the app is great, it does what it’s supposed to, and it’s reliable!
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.
Great messaging app!
by Harumph99 on 2020/06/20 14:57
Use this a LOT and it’s great and surprisingly full featured for as simple to use as it it feels. I have two things I’d wish would be bug-fixed and 2 easy features: 1- a few revs back the blue dot that indicates new messages appears in the top left corner when you’re in one group, even if the new message is only in that same group you’re already inside, even if you’ve read everything new in that group! It used to only show that if there was a new message in another group. Many times a day now I have to click up a level only to find there are not any new messages. Or make that dot go away once I read the mssgs in the grouo I’m in! 2- there’s a crash that has been around for a year! If you click on a notification and go to that group message it almost always will not let you type a response, just hangs... and if you click the + it finally crashes and then launch again and it’s fine. Easy to reproduce! iOS12.x iPhone7 Features: setting for a group to supress the “abcd guy is [not] going to <event xyz>”. This clogs up the chat for even a medium sized group. Large groups it’s ridiculous. And for covid world can you let people check in to an event so the admin can use to know who was there for some municipality tracing requirements.
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!
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!
Why is there so many scams on this app?
by Mya 💜 on 2020/02/04 15:49
I am not sure if someone's account got hijacked or not, but one morning I received a message from GroupMe Support that said "Hello! We sent you a FREE iPhone 11 Pro; Congratulations! Claim now." I've read up online that this is clearly a scam much like the other I received a few months back from a random person. This could be someone impersonating GroupMe's support by going under their name and using their profile picture, but something needs to be done about it. This scam has costed some people their personal and bank information because there is no way of them knowing if this is official or not when a scam disguises itself to make it look more official, but I recommend that you all increase the security and single out any bots or impersonators. I even got a random message from a bot account that wanted to share me "inappropriate photos" on a link, seriously? I am not sure how these people even opening conversations with me as I haven't shared my profile and I don't have them added on my social media profile. It's a bit annoying to know that you don't have actual privacy from these circumstances other than to block the user. I hope the app's security is majorly enforced to prevent scams like this from going around on it.
It’s not getting any better
by omihek on 2019/08/07 03:43
Make it more like Discord. And before you tell me to just go use Discord, I already do, but literally no one else in my family or community does, so I’m stuck on GroupMe for all the family and friend stuff like outings and parties and whatnot. Let us edit a message, or even delete a message we sent. What good is it to just hide the message on only my device? Another thing 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 one-on-one chat in iMessage. Please, do it for me.
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!!!
Needs the ability to delete chats and have invites
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/05/14 14:22
Overall, this is a decent chatting app with some nice features. But it is highly susceptible to spam. There is the ability to just talk to "nearby" GroupMe users, even those you don't know. So I've received some inappropriate spam messages that way. If there was an invite feature, where instead of seeing their message and profile pic, it just had the message "X would like to chat with you" and you could accept or decline, that would make this app 10 times better. Of course, for those who want the ability to get messages from anyone, they could turn invites off. The other thing the app needs is a way to actually delete chats. Yeah, I see the pros of always having the chats and groups if you need them again, but as I said earlier; there is some spam that I would like to delete, not just hide. Because once its hidden, every time the app updates, all those spam chats come right back to the home screen, and I need to spend time dropping them into hiding again. If these features are added, the current abilites to send messages to people with just text or email make this a fantastic app.
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!
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.
Setting group photos & cloning a group
by Dsanforhim on 2019/09/16 03:40
I’ve enjoyed most of the new features that have been recently rolled out with a few exceptions... Setting group photos, please revert the change - I recently noticed that you cannot do a search to set the group photo anymore which is very annoying and now I have several groups without photos because it is more difficult to set the photo now. Please revert this setting back so that you can search for a photo Cloning, restrict to admin and group owners - cloning is a great idea so that creating new similar groups is much easier, BUT I would recommend restricting this privilege to group owners and admins. I have been in several groups where a group member thinks it would be funny to create a duplicate group and causes more problems than they need to. If this privilege was restricted to admin and group owners, the useful tool would be used by the correct people.
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.
An “All” feature
by HelenaSagaille on 2020/06/04 17:22
I love using this app to stay in contact with multiple groups that I take part in. The only feature that I think would make this app perfect and want to inquire about is an “all” button or feature. When I have to get an urgent message out to certains groups of people I find it incredibly time consuming to tag everyone in the message and sometimes certain individuals get left out, therefore they do not see the message. Is there any possible way you guys would be able to include this feature or is already coming in the future in an update? I really appreciate you guys taking this into consideration and I along with many colleagues agree that this would really improve our experience with this app and make it perfect.
App quality
by try number 9 for nickname on 2020/01/04 18:31
Had the app freeze on me a number of times but last week it was stuck on the loading screen and I couldn’t used my phone for hours. I couldn’t even hard reset my iPhone. I was trying everything and accidentally hit my lock button 5 times, which calls the police. The call went thru but since I could not leave the loading screen and use my phone I couldn’t hang up and had to explain to them what happened. They sent people over to my house at midnight to check on us and my parents had no idea what was going on and I had to calm them down and get us back to sleep before we woke up at 4am the next day to catch a flight for vacation. Didn’t have a phone for some of the vacation until I was finally able to hard reset. I love talking to my friends on this application but I have had multiple problems with the quality. This past time was the worst it’s ever gotten and I just got a brand new phone so it can’t be that.
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.
Use a different group app
by Sahrif on 2020/08/30 18:42
This app is buggy and most importantly completely void of any security. You can’t delete chats or block people who you don’t know the phone number to like stalkers, creepy strangers, and mostly scam bots. People who aren’t in you contacts or groups can still direct message you with no way to block, only can ‘hide’ messages. Fat lot of good that does. Bots will contact you for sure, advertising porn and free iphones but GroupMe lets them do it because they don’t care about user security. You will get spammed. Even in normal use it’s a bad app when compared even to email. You can’t send audio, high quality images, video over 30 seconds. You can’t delete posts or search through a group chat. Sometimes you won’t get notifications for no reason. The app loads for a million years. You’ll even get issues logging in and creating an account ‘unknown error’. It’s just a bad app and completely ridiculous they have 4.7 stars. They must be buying reviews is all I can think of
Group. Me is awesome
by Brianna.W15 on 2019/11/29 12:48
I absolutely love using Group Me as my messaging app, to connect my group of friends. You can add as many people to the group chat , you can use cool blue emojis, you can change your user as many times as you want, you can name the group and if you have a phone number or not you can still use this app. Now you do have to use a phone number as a verification, then it sticks with your account. Now don’t use the same number that you already used or it’s going to link the accounts together. Even kids can use it! My 12 year old sister doesn’t have a phone, but she has an iPod. All her friends that she played volleyball with has only an iPod as well. So they decided to have a group on Group Me which they love. Over all I love this is app!
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 NickProPro 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.
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!
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.
Glitch with Notifications :\
by SilvermistReshiram on 2019/11/17 16:50
Personally, I think this app is pretty good. However, the thing that has been driving me absolutely NUTS is that when I open the app to read the newest messages, it doesn’t update afterwards that I read them, so when I exit the app it still shows that I have those same number of unread messages. I’ve tried clicking on each message on the thread and scrolling all the way up through every message to see if either of those things would fix it, but unfortunately it hasn’t done a thing to fix it. Been SO tempted to just delete the app to get rid of the notifications showing up as unread after I have for sure read them. Please find a way to fix this glitch soon! It is driving me absolutely INSANE!! I really want to enjoy this app, but it’s been so hard to with that glaring glitch constantly showing up. 😞 Please fix this!
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.
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.
App logs me out, should be able to send longer high quality videos
by twlghtdrmr on 2019/12/12 00:10
The app randomly logs me out every few months and when I log back in I can’t see any of my previous chats or contacts. I have some peoples’ contacts through this app alone, so it’s really annoying when that happens. However, if I delete the app and redownload it, usually everything comes back. Not all the time though, and the process is very tedious so I wish this wouldn’t happen. The last time I was logged out it was across all of my devices and it wouldn’t let me log back in for several weeks even though I entered the correct password (it seemed like it was glitching out). If getting logged out is still a necessary procedure I wish there was at least some warning beforehand. Also wish we could send longer videos through the app while maintaining image quality. Other than that it’s pretty good, sorry for the low rating.
Muting a chat needs to show ZERO notifications.
by Schober43 on 2020/08/25 01:39
I have several active chats in this app and I’ve used it exclusively as my group chat app for maybe a decade now. It is wonderful for the most part. My BIGGEST complaint though is if you mute a chat, you still get the red badge on the app icon and the app will say you have X unread messages. It won’r pop up on your lock screen though. I wish that mute was a FULL silence on the chat. It’s COVID era and my beer league hockey team chat has been going off all lock down when i haven't played for 6 months. I don’t really care about the NHL playoffs too much but they do. So i have to open the app to get rid of the badge icon. I use the app for other chats still and want to see those messages but the ones that I can wait on and silence until I’m ready to participate.. I cant.
Where is the edit mode?
by 40Ash on 2020/04/20 05:21
GroupMe is a very powerful tool in the social media world, but the one thing everyone else has and you don’t is edit mode. You can not edit or delete a message from anything or anyone but from yourself (and you can’t delete that either). I want to edit a message you can’t, but you can hide it, from who? Myself? They can still see the freaking message, but I can’t now. It’s like playing hind and seek in a very, very lit room with a billion people still watching you try to hide in a football stadium. I want to remove a person from my contacts list, you can’t do it. The basic functions of GroupMe of chat is there, but one super key factor is not present in this day and time. Why the heck not! GroupMe would be a 5 star on my list, but until this major flaw is not corrected, it will remain at 3 stars from me.
Baffled

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!!
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.
Business growth!!
by KC-Axel on 2020/05/23 13:54
Hello all, I know you have your hands full already and am super grateful for your hard work! You have developed an amazing app that helped me and hundreds of other business owners grow their business. I won’t bore you with details but just wanted to make a recommendation as to some features that might be worth looking into. There is currently no way to delete a message within a conversation other than to hide it in my device. Also, there is a cap to how many people can be in a group. Myself and many of my business partners and other people in my industry have decided to migrate to telegram due to these features stated above. That’s nearly 50,000 new users on telegram and counting that have migrated from Group Me. I hope this helps, God bless you all!!
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!
Love the app accept you can’t delete messages
by Pokadot1 on 2020/09/17 01:04
I love GroupMe and I use it for several groups that I am apart of. Great way to communicate and keep on touch in a timely manner. Only thing I wish they had was a way to delete or cancel messages. I’ve mad a mistake and posted a photo in the incorrect group and it couldn’t be erased and it stays in the gallery. It was anything explicit but it just wasn’t meant for the intended group. While I know I have to be more aware of where I’m posting, it can be an honest mistake and you won’t be able to save yourself of an embarrassing photo meant for your friend group that goes into your family or church group that you may also use the app for. I hope that this functionality comes along and I would definitely give 5 stars!
Nobody likes group messages....except on “GroupMe”
by Finemommy71 on 2020/01/14 17:22
I would try to send group messages to friends and family and there would usually by someone in the group that would complain and ask to be taken out of the group, but I have a busy life and I don’t have time to message everyone individually!!! Now we have “GroupMe”, they are not getting the constant dings and notification every time someone replies, they can read all of the responses collectively at one time, and reply or not reply, it is their choice and at their leisure!! GroupMe makes responding to mine and my kid’s teammates, classmates, co-workers, family members, social groups, event managers, etc. so hassle free and consolidates my life and keeping everything organized!
Cool App, One Annoyance (Fix please?)
by Kayleigh T. on 2019/10/15 20:47
Overall this app works great! It is extremely convenient for organizing large groups of people. However there is one thing that drives me crazy. It takes forever for the little red notification number to disappear on the app icon. Even if you have read all the messages and there are no new ones the red number for how many messages were previously unread will last until it is replaced by more incoming messages. Sometimes the number goes away and sometimes it does not. This is can be very frustrating especially when I am trying to tie up loose ends and make sure I have attended to everything. If there is a chance that this small bug could be fixed in a future update that would be pretty cool.
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
Great way to stay informed
by sadnsilent on 2019/10/06 06:44
Lately, a close relative was in the hospital with some fairly bad problems. The family includes a family out of state, several families very close—too many to visit, but all interested and worried. A tech-savvy family member set up a GroupMe thread including all family, far and near. It was amazing—info was given out, questions were asked and answered, pictures posted of our sick one, progressively showing improvement. As far as I know, it (the group connection) is still active, a couple of items have been posted, travel, kids, etc. I realize most use is social and lighthearted—that’s fine. But in a medical crisis, it served us all very well and I’d recommend it for that.
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
I ♥️ GroupMe
by Arkady D. on 2020/08/26 19:31
GroupMe is the no-drama alternative to advertisement & propaganda fueled socializing platforms. A friend recommended I use GroupMe to keep a large circle of family & friends in the loop leading up to, during and after my daughter’s surgery. I liked how easy it was to set up, post updates, get feedback and share photos. For this use, I originally gave the group a “pre-surgery” title. Once surgery was over it was easy to rename the group a “recovery” title and none of the previous posts were lost. Next time around, I was the one recommending GroupMe to my daughter’s support group. The leaders took my advice and we’ve found it to be the perfect way to share progress, ask questions and set meeting dates.
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.
Best option available, but could use a few improvements.
by 16thNotes16 on 2020/10/13 12:28
I’ve been using GroupMe for a couple years now and it’s fantastic, probably the best group communication app on the market currently (second to Discord, but you’ll not be using that with most groups since it’s targeted for gamers). I think the only things missing that I think is somewhat odd to not have is a group ping and pinned messages. It’s irritating to have to select and type out every single name of every person you want to announce to, especially on more frivolous chats that people keep muted. Pins also is a need, as important messages are soon lost in the miasma of other discussion. If GroupMe adds these, they’ll get five starts, but until then it’s a 4 star app in my book.
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!
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.

Group Avatar Won’t Change

Since the new update to GroupMe. The group avatar will not change. You can select the pic and hit save, and it goes back to the previous avatar. 😢
I hate that I have to use this for school
by emfrankie on 2020/10/23 21:22
Half the groups go to my phone as texts even though I have it set to be in the app, and even when it sun the app it doesn’t let me send photos. Very frustrating.
Crashing

Love this app! Use it all the time for work and social groups. Just find it annoying after every update all my chats that were hidden unhindered after an update. Would be great if I could just delete chats completely without having to hide. Other than that great app.

Only 1 complaint
by mmrosey on 2020/10/21 14:42
I use this app for so many groups! I love it and it works amazing for 95% of communications. My only complaint is the search feature. I wish there was a way to search by member. For example, I know I saw a message by someone but I can’t find it - even with the search feature. But if I could filter by member messages it would help. Other than that it’s 5 stars
Keeps quitting on me
by Jamesb0926 on 2020/10/21 13:54
If I have this app open for more than about thirty seconds is quits and I have to reopen it. Super annoying. It has been doing it for weeks. I was hoping a patch would fix it but so far no good.
Review
by destine lakel on 2020/10/21 12:38
The app is good really for communication for businesses but you need to be able to write more instead of having to break up important information into serval different messages
It keeps crashing every 20 seconds
by A.D.R.. on 2020/10/20 21:51
Im not able to read or type much, because the app crashes every 15-20 seconds. Please fix this.
Will not open

After installing it for the first time, it worked fine. But as soon as I make an account and sign in, it crashes! And it will crash every time I try opening it. Not even reinstalling it works, cuz it crashes after that too! Unless the problem is fixed, this app is trash!
This is great!!

Even when notifications show up, I can’t see any new messages until 15 or 30 minutes after they are sent. I updated the app, deleted it and reinstalled, signed out multiple times, and it’s still lagging and glitching. Extremely disappointing.

Just installed this app on a new up to date ipad. It initially let me sign in and then once I verified it started force closing. No matter what it continues to force close, even after uninstalling and reinstalling several times.

It’s ok
by K9paine on 2020/10/15 16:47
As far as doing it’s job? It’s a solid app. If you need a way to form a chat for a group project or something to that nature, I recommend it. However, it’s missing a couple of features that every chat app should have. Example being the ability to delete conversations. Especially when your inbox gets spammed by bots. That’s my main motivation for never really using this app unless I have to. Also, there aren’t any privacy settings on the app, so fair warning.
Terrible for iPad
by W - T.R. on 2020/10/15 16:41

Great idea but horrible tech support
by LyphBB on 2020/10/14 19:28
Downloaded the app, verified my college email, but I’m registered by GroupMe under the wrong university! Tried uninstalling/ re-registering, and no luck. Tried customer support. First time someone reached out and ask me about a group ID. Responded I just wanted to be put under the correct university. No response. Tried a second support request, no response. Is it so hard to be placed under the correct university? My email is “@(university).edu”. There really isn’t any guess work involved. 1/5 stars because I can’t use it with my actual university. (My classmates do not have this problem).
I love Group me but...

2 suggestions, For some reason my app constantly crashes. Make a quicker way to delete chats
Good but missing somethings
by MrMattisonfire on 2020/10/14 18:06
First the option to delete messages would be nice. Sometimes I try my best to response to people quickly and I end up typos. This happened a few times to me and other people. The option to hide a message from the whole group would be nice. Additionally. Being able to pin messages. Sometimes we send files like PDFs to one another. I end up losing it amongst the conversation. Implementing those two would be great :)

It frequently takes multiple attempts to read messages from neighbors because of the of crashes. It seems to happen in the first 20 seconds or so. I’m considering uninstalling and using the website to see if it’s more stable. Please read your crush reports and do something, this is sad!
Constant crashes
by Menchies on 2020/10/14 05:46
I don’t know what happened, but over the last few months the app has started crashing a lot more frequently. I’ve noticed this on all my devices including my iPhone 11 and iPad Pro 3rd gen. I’ve asked a few of my other friends if they’ve experienced this, and they agree. Most of the time it’s random or when I open up the app and there’s a lot of messages.

It keeps crashing

I found that if you type a number on the search message bar it will crash. But if you type in a text it will search the message. Please fix this.

GroupMe support scam
by kelsieshfkf on 2020/10/12 18:56
I keep having to block the same contact over and over again and it’s not stopping. Every few hours it’s the same message about an iPhone 11 but it’s so obviously spam. The app is fine but figure out how to keep these spam messages in check or just allow users to report them because the block feature is obviously not working.
Very good
by Odysseus17 on 2020/10/12 14:12
Pretty good app, but can you guys make the polls have the option to not be anonymous
Use for work
by Rexneffex H on 2020/10/12 13:34
We use this to communicate in multiple groups for work. It does a great job. Might have to reinstall every month or so, but it saves all the messages so it’s fine. Much better than texting/ emailing everything.
Great app, but

One little thing
by NoZzLeNuT36 on 2020/10/11 20:40
I love the app but it would be great if you could slide the msg over and delete instead of hiding the chat.
Great chap
by johnsoni. on 2020/10/11 19:55
I really like GroupMe. I think that it is a really good instant messaging app. I like how the app is really easy to use to chat with other people.

Needs Apple Watch Support
by Testament on 2020/10/11 17:21
The app is pretty good overall however it really could benefit from Apple watch integrations. I'm often in a situation at work where viewing and responding via the phone isn't ideal or really possible. Being able to view and reply via watch would be fantastic. One other thing is that if a message fails to send due to connectivity issues it doesn't attempt to resend from what I've noticed. It just hangs there in limbo. If that could be resolved it would be very helpful. Other than that it's a solid app.

Won’t let you create account
by threedudesdad1971 on 2020/10/10 20:52
What good is an app that doesn’t allow you to create an account. Tried a dozen times and it doesn’t allow you in.
Love this is app! Use it on a daily basis for my business!

The only thing I would love to see on this app would be to have like a “edit post” People tend to make A LOT of typos lol

Used to be Usable
by wacklesnap on 2020/10/09 19:25
There’s way too many bugs. I get notifications for private messages that don’t show up! Both on the web and on this app. Half the features are flaky at best. Very disappointing for an app that used to be a lifesaver in college.

by butthole john on 2020/10/09 00:19
This app is good for texting but if you want to be a social person and actually call someone you have to download Skype which takes more time and energy than I could ever have. I don’t have the patience for this people need to make it so I can video call my people without an extra app..... hate to be a Karen but I need the manager 👁👄👁

Not Necessarily Inclusive
by courfeyracandroll on 2020/10/08 00:12
It would be AWESOME if GroupMe would stop notifying groups when names are changed within groups! It’s hard for individuals who want to change their name without their legal/deadname being displayed during the name change. Please please please change this!
Crashes quite a bit
by KANGELLE on 2020/10/07 16:12
This app is great for collaborating on projects and communicating with large groups. The only thing is that it crashes after switching to different groups quite often:(
Easy to use!!

I think this app is so great! It’s for Mothers to connect with their kiddos teachers and also other kiddos Mothers from the classroom. It really helped me with the transition to Pre-K from my kiddo being at home with me everyday.
Getting lots of scam texts

Today alone I have received over 10 messages from accounts claiming to be groupme support saying i've been selected to win an iphone 11. i've blocked all, but still continue to receive messages. this needs to stop, and there needs to be a way for me to report these accounts. i'm sick of opening the app to messages like this and will be deleting the app if it doesn't stop.

I can’t believe people use this
by joshwcorbett on 2020/10/04 22:48
This is by far the most poorly designed and ill-functioning app I’ve ever used to simply chat among coworkers. I don’t understand why an organization wouldn’t choose discord over this junk. I’ve experienced endless crashes, poor accessibility practices, poor adaptation to iOS 14, and terrible user experience overall. My company uses this and it gives me one more reason not to work there. Use discord, not this junk.
Third party phone numbers support
by Benjamin Feld on 2020/10/04 21:15
Since I don’t have a phone and instead an iPod, I use an app called TextNow which gives you a phone number to use to call/text people. A phone number is required to use this app, and I tried putting my third party number in, but it doesn’t work. Can you update this so you can use third party phone numbers with it?
It's great! But...

Unreliable messaging.
by Zombified jelly on 2020/10/03 23:38
The app does not sync well across 2/3 of my devices. The two devices with issue are tablet and phone. The notifications stall and then appear one one device or the other but not both. Chat is even worse with the messages that won’t refresh.

You should have the option to coffee pot… Or single out an individual to message. I can’t figure it out does it seem like it’s as easy to use as it should be. But I love the concept.
Great app! Missing ONE thing 🤞
by haley alexandra on 2019/11/21 02:31
I LOVE GroupMe. I use it for groups at school, at work, and for one-on-one conversations as well. All around, it’s great. It has a clean user interface, it’s fast, in real time. I love being able to add gifs, polls, videos, pictures, etc to our chats. My only irks as far as videos and pictures go is the quality is LOW. I recommend taking videos or picture outside of the app on your normal camera and uploading, versus using the in app GroupMe camera. I’ve also found that pictures uploaded still lose quality, so if there’s any small text then zooming in on it is just not worth it since it will end up blurry. Outside of that, I have no complaints for the media, etc. The ONLY thing I wish this app would offer is PINNED messages. I run multiple chats for work, and being able to pin/star/etc important messages for everyone to access and refer back to would be AMAZING. I think this would be a great feature to offer to admins of groups. You can search most popular messages, but this is not always useful if the messages that need to be seen by new members, etc, are too far back in the chat to be relevant in the popular messages anymore. If this feature was added, GroupMe would take the cake for, in my opinion, the best group messaging app. Outside of this, the app is great, it does what it’s supposed to, and it’s reliable!
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.
Great messaging app!
by Harumph99 on 2020/06/20 14:57
Use this a LOT and it’s great and surprisingly full featured for as simple to use as it it feels. I have two things I’d wish would be bug-fixed and 2 easy features: 1- a few revs back the blue dot that indicates new messages appears in the top left corner when you’re in one group, even if the new message is only in that same group you’re already inside, even if you’ve read everything new in that group! It used to only show that if there was a new message in another group. Many times a day now I have to click up a level only to find there are not any new messages. Or make that dot go away once I read the mssgs in the grouo I’m in! 2- there’s a crash that has been around for a year! If you click on a notification and go to that group message it almost always will not let you type a response, just hangs... and if you click the + it finally crashes and then launch again and it’s fine. Easy to reproduce! iOS12.x iPhone7 Features: setting for a group to supress the “abcd guy is [not] going to <event xyz>”. This clogs up the chat for even a medium sized group. Large groups it’s ridiculous. And for covid world can you let people check in to an event so the admin can use to know who was there for some municipality tracing requirements.
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!
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!
Why is there so many scams on this app?
by Mya 💜 on 2020/02/04 15:49
I am not sure if someone's account got hijacked or not, but one morning I received a message from GroupMe Support that said "Hello! We sent you a FREE iPhone 11 Pro; Congratulations! Claim now." I've read up online that this is clearly a scam much like the other I received a few months back from a random person. This could be someone impersonating GroupMe's support by going under their name and using their profile picture, but something needs to be done about it. This scam has costed some people their personal and bank information because there is no way of them knowing if this is official or not when a scam disguises itself to make it look more official, but I recommend that you all increase the security and single out any bots or impersonators. I even got a random message from a bot account that wanted to share me "inappropriate photos" on a link, seriously? I am not sure how these people even opening conversations with me as I haven't shared my profile and I don't have them added on my social media profile. It's a bit annoying to know that you don't have actual privacy from these circumstances other than to block the user. I hope the app's security is majorly enforced to prevent scams like this from going around on it.
It’s not getting any better
by omihek on 2019/08/07 03:43
Make it more like Discord. And before you tell me to just go use Discord, I already do, but literally no one else in my family or community does, so I’m stuck on GroupMe for all the family and friend stuff like outings and parties and whatnot. Let us edit a message, or even delete a message we sent. What good is it to just hide the message on only my device? Another thing 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 one-on-one chat in iMessage. Please, do it for me.
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!!!
Needs the ability to delete chats and have invites
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/05/14 14:22
Overall, this is a decent chatting app with some nice features. But it is highly susceptible to spam. There is the ability to just talk to "nearby" GroupMe users, even those you don't know. So I've received some inappropriate spam messages that way. If there was an invite feature, where instead of seeing their message and profile pic, it just had the message "X would like to chat with you" and you could accept or decline, that would make this app 10 times better. Of course, for those who want the ability to get messages from anyone, they could turn invites off. The other thing the app needs is a way to actually delete chats. Yeah, I see the pros of always having the chats and groups if you need them again, but as I said earlier; there is some spam that I would like to delete, not just hide. Because once its hidden, every time the app updates, all those spam chats come right back to the home screen, and I need to spend time dropping them into hiding again. If these features are added, the current abilites to send messages to people with just text or email make this a fantastic app.
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!
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.
Setting group photos & cloning a group
by Dsanforhim on 2019/09/16 03:40
I’ve enjoyed most of the new features that have been recently rolled out with a few exceptions... Setting group photos, please revert the change - I recently noticed that you cannot do a search to set the group photo anymore which is very annoying and now I have several groups without photos because it is more difficult to set the photo now. Please revert this setting back so that you can search for a photo Cloning, restrict to admin and group owners - cloning is a great idea so that creating new similar groups is much easier, BUT I would recommend restricting this privilege to group owners and admins. I have been in several groups where a group member thinks it would be funny to create a duplicate group and causes more problems than they need to. If this privilege was restricted to admin and group owners, the useful tool would be used by the correct people.
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.
An “All” feature
by HelenaSagaille on 2020/06/04 17:22
I love using this app to stay in contact with multiple groups that I take part in. The only feature that I think would make this app perfect and want to inquire about is an “all” button or feature. When I have to get an urgent message out to certains groups of people I find it incredibly time consuming to tag everyone in the message and sometimes certain individuals get left out, therefore they do not see the message. Is there any possible way you guys would be able to include this feature or is already coming in the future in an update? I really appreciate you guys taking this into consideration and I along with many colleagues agree that this would really improve our experience with this app and make it perfect.
App quality
by try number 9 for nickname on 2020/01/04 18:31
Had the app freeze on me a number of times but last week it was stuck on the loading screen and I couldn’t used my phone for hours. I couldn’t even hard reset my iPhone. I was trying everything and accidentally hit my lock button 5 times, which calls the police. The call went thru but since I could not leave the loading screen and use my phone I couldn’t hang up and had to explain to them what happened. They sent people over to my house at midnight to check on us and my parents had no idea what was going on and I had to calm them down and get us back to sleep before we woke up at 4am the next day to catch a flight for vacation. Didn’t have a phone for some of the vacation until I was finally able to hard reset. I love talking to my friends on this application but I have had multiple problems with the quality. This past time was the worst it’s ever gotten and I just got a brand new phone so it can’t be that.
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.
Use a different group app
by Sahrif on 2020/08/30 18:42
This app is buggy and most importantly completely void of any security. You can’t delete chats or block people who you don’t know the phone number to like stalkers, creepy strangers, and mostly scam bots. People who aren’t in you contacts or groups can still direct message you with no way to block, only can ‘hide’ messages. Fat lot of good that does. Bots will contact you for sure, advertising porn and free iphones but GroupMe lets them do it because they don’t care about user security. You will get spammed. Even in normal use it’s a bad app when compared even to email. You can’t send audio, high quality images, video over 30 seconds. You can’t delete posts or search through a group chat. Sometimes you won’t get notifications for no reason. The app loads for a million years. You’ll even get issues logging in and creating an account ‘unknown error’. It’s just a bad app and completely ridiculous they have 4.7 stars. They must be buying reviews is all I can think of
Group. Me is awesome
by Brianna.W15 on 2019/11/29 12:48
I absolutely love using Group Me as my messaging app, to connect my group of friends. You can add as many people to the group chat , you can use cool blue emojis, you can change your user as many times as you want, you can name the group and if you have a phone number or not you can still use this app. Now you do have to use a phone number as a verification, then it sticks with your account. Now don’t use the same number that you already used or it’s going to link the accounts together. Even kids can use it! My 12 year old sister doesn’t have a phone, but she has an iPod. All her friends that she played volleyball with has only an iPod as well. So they decided to have a group on Group Me which they love. Over all I love this is app!
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 NickProPro 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.
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!
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.
Glitch with Notifications :\
by SilvermistReshiram on 2019/11/17 16:50
Personally, I think this app is pretty good. However, the thing that has been driving me absolutely NUTS is that when I open the app to read the newest messages, it doesn’t update afterwards that I read them, so when I exit the app it still shows that I have those same number of unread messages. I’ve tried clicking on each message on the thread and scrolling all the way up through every message to see if either of those things would fix it, but unfortunately it hasn’t done a thing to fix it. Been SO tempted to just delete the app to get rid of the notifications showing up as unread after I have for sure read them. Please find a way to fix this glitch soon! It is driving me absolutely INSANE!! I really want to enjoy this app, but it’s been so hard to with that glaring glitch constantly showing up. 😞 Please fix this!
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.
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.
App logs me out, should be able to send longer high quality videos
by twlghtdrmr on 2019/12/12 00:10
The app randomly logs me out every few months and when I log back in I can’t see any of my previous chats or contacts. I have some peoples’ contacts through this app alone, so it’s really annoying when that happens. However, if I delete the app and redownload it, usually everything comes back. Not all the time though, and the process is very tedious so I wish this wouldn’t happen. The last time I was logged out it was across all of my devices and it wouldn’t let me log back in for several weeks even though I entered the correct password (it seemed like it was glitching out). If getting logged out is still a necessary procedure I wish there was at least some warning beforehand. Also wish we could send longer videos through the app while maintaining image quality. Other than that it’s pretty good, sorry for the low rating.
Muting a chat needs to show ZERO notifications.
by Schober43 on 2020/08/25 01:39
I have several active chats in this app and I’ve used it exclusively as my group chat app for maybe a decade now. It is wonderful for the most part. My BIGGEST complaint though is if you mute a chat, you still get the red badge on the app icon and the app will say you have X unread messages. It won’r pop up on your lock screen though. I wish that mute was a FULL silence on the chat. It’s COVID era and my beer league hockey team chat has been going off all lock down when i haven't played for 6 months. I don’t really care about the NHL playoffs too much but they do. So i have to open the app to get rid of the badge icon. I use the app for other chats still and want to see those messages but the ones that I can wait on and silence until I’m ready to participate.. I cant.
Where is the edit mode?
by 40Ash on 2020/04/20 05:21
GroupMe is a very powerful tool in the social media world, but the one thing everyone else has and you don’t is edit mode. You can not edit or delete a message from anything or anyone but from yourself (and you can’t delete that either). I want to edit a message you can’t, but you can hide it, from who? Myself? They can still see the freaking message, but I can’t now. It’s like playing hind and seek in a very, very lit room with a billion people still watching you try to hide in a football stadium. I want to remove a person from my contacts list, you can’t do it. The basic functions of GroupMe of chat is there, but one super key factor is not present in this day and time. Why the heck not! GroupMe would be a 5 star on my list, but until this major flaw is not corrected, it will remain at 3 stars from me.
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!!
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.
Business growth!!
by KC-Axel on 2020/05/23 13:54
Hello all, I know you have your hands full already and am super grateful for your hard work! You have developed an amazing app that helped me and hundreds of other business owners grow their business. I won’t bore you with details but just wanted to make a recommendation as to some features that might be worth looking into. There is currently no way to delete a message within a conversation other than to hide it in my device. Also, there is a cap to how many people can be in a group. Myself and many of my business partners and other people in my industry have decided to migrate to telegram due to these features stated above. That’s nearly 50,000 new users on telegram and counting that have migrated from Group Me. I hope this helps, God bless you all!!
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!
Love the app accept you can’t delete messages
by Pokadot1 on 2020/09/17 01:04
I love GroupMe and I use it for several groups that I am apart of. Great way to communicate and keep on touch in a timely manner. Only thing I wish they had was a way to delete or cancel messages. I’ve mad a mistake and posted a photo in the incorrect group and it couldn’t be erased and it stays in the gallery. It was anything explicit but it just wasn’t meant for the intended group. While I know I have to be more aware of where I’m posting, it can be an honest mistake and you won’t be able to save yourself of an embarrassing photo meant for your friend group that goes into your family or church group that you may also use the app for. I hope that this functionality comes along and I would definitely give 5 stars!
Nobody likes group messages....except on “GroupMe”
by Finemommy71 on 2020/01/14 17:22
I would try to send group messages to friends and family and there would usually by someone in the group that would complain and ask to be taken out of the group, but I have a busy life and I don’t have time to message everyone individually!!! Now we have “GroupMe”, they are not getting the constant dings and notification every time someone replies, they can read all of the responses collectively at one time, and reply or not reply, it is their choice and at their leisure!! GroupMe makes responding to mine and my kid’s teammates, classmates, co-workers, family members, social groups, event managers, etc. so hassle free and consolidates my life and keeping everything organized!
Cool App, One Annoyance (Fix please?)
by Kayleigh T. on 2019/10/15 20:47
Overall this app works great! It is extremely convenient for organizing large groups of people. However there is one thing that drives me crazy. It takes forever for the little red notification number to disappear on the app icon. Even if you have read all the messages and there are no new ones the red number for how many messages were previously unread will last until it is replaced by more incoming messages. Sometimes the number goes away and sometimes it does not. This is can be very frustrating especially when I am trying to tie up loose ends and make sure I have attended to everything. If there is a chance that this small bug could be fixed in a future update that would be pretty cool.
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
Great way to stay informed
by sadnsilent on 2019/10/06 06:44
Lately, a close relative was in the hospital with some fairly bad problems. The family includes a family out of state, several families very close—too many to visit, but all interested and worried. A tech-savvy family member set up a GroupMe thread including all family, far and near. It was amazing—info was given out, questions were asked and answered, pictures posted of our sick one, progressively showing improvement. As far as I know, it (the group connection) is still active, a couple of items have been posted, travel, kids, etc. I realize most use is social and lighthearted—that’s fine. But in a medical crisis, it served us all very well and I’d recommend it for that.
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
I ♥️ GroupMe
by Arkady D. on 2020/08/26 19:31
GroupMe is the no-drama alternative to advertisement & propaganda fueled socializing platforms. A friend recommended I use GroupMe to keep a large circle of family & friends in the loop leading up to, during and after my daughter’s surgery. I liked how easy it was to set up, post updates, get feedback and share photos. For this use, I originally gave the group a “pre-surgery” title. Once surgery was over it was easy to rename the group a “recovery” title and none of the previous posts were lost. Next time around, I was the one recommending GroupMe to my daughter’s support group. The leaders took my advice and we’ve found it to be the perfect way to share progress, ask questions and set meeting dates.
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.
Best option available, but could use a few improvements.
by 16thNotes16 on 2020/10/13 12:28
I’ve been using GroupMe for a couple years now and it’s fantastic, probably the best group communication app on the market currently (second to Discord, but you’ll not be using that with most groups since it’s targeted for gamers). I think the only things missing that I think is somewhat odd to not have is a group ping and pinned messages. It’s irritating to have to select and type out every single name of every person you want to announce to, especially on more frivolous chats that people keep muted. Pins also is a need, as important messages are soon lost in the miasma of other discussion. If GroupMe adds these, they’ll get five starts, but until then it’s a 4 star app in my book.
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!
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.
