Introduction to GroupMe Messenger
GroupMe is a group messaging which allows the combination of different social media platforms in one app for ease of use. This app lets you send messages directly from your smartphone to various other apps in one, without extra cost.
There are so many things you can do with GroupMe. The number one thing you can do is have conversations with all your friends and even be able to schedule events with the app. There are lots of emojis and GIFs to be used to spice up your conversations. Most of them tend to be adult themed and this is where your discretion matters. Group chat of family and friends and children as young as 13 years and above can use this app but beware, you have to watch them to see what they're up to. This is mostly because content on GroupMe may not be that controlled by the user.
Teachers testify that this is a good app for collaborating with other like-minded strangers and students are able to use this app to easily contact each other without even having to share private information. They can exchange pictures, texts, links and videos without having to be in groups. This is awesome for those who do not wish to share their numbers with others.
Some GroupMe app features we really like:
- One on one messaging
- Eye catching emojis and GIFs.
- All in one messaging
- Ability to share pictures and videos
- Works through SMS also
- Ability to share locations
- Gallery viewing.
Why choose GroupMe vs other messaging apps?
If there is a reason you should use the GroupMe app, it is that you can use it for sharing educational content and for connecting with your students if you're a teacher for example. Moreso, If you are not a fan of sharing private information online, this is a great place to connect with people without having to do that. Also it's not just a boring app as there are tools that help make the conversations engaging as you use the app
- The platform is simple and easy to use.
- It has Foursquare integration within it.
- Group/conference calls are made easier with GroupMe. All it takes is one tap.
- It's easy to manage your groups within GroupMe app
- It never shares personal information so it is safe to a large extent.
- It has sexual content in form of GIFs and cartoons that might make it not all appropriate for a kid to use unless they're watched.
- Doesn't feel as premium as more recent apps.

Group name in notifications
By Kwame Family (Pcmac user)
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 this app 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!
It’s not getting any better
By omihek (Pcmac user)
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 this app 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.
Great App, but could be even better
By jsmit5635 (Pcmac user)
This is a great app that I use every single day for a bunch of different group messages, but I feel like there are a few ways it could be improved to make it even more useful/ easier to use:
Being able to view a picture from a notification without having to go into the app. It is very annoying to have to pull out my phone and go into the app to see the picture especially when I have an Apple Watch.
It would be great to have an Apple Watch app to accommodate the iOS app. Along with being able to view a picture right from the notification this would be extremely useful with the new Apple Watch with cellular connectivity. Imagine if you are out going for a walk or run with just your Apple Watch Series 3 and someone sends you a picture. With the current system you would have to wait until you got home to view the picture. Another nice feature for the Apple Watch app would be the ability to see past messages instead of just the ones from notifications that go away when you tap on them. This would be just like how the messages app works on my Apple Watch.
Messages Not Showing. Edit. Edit again
By annaw2002 (Pcmac user)
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!!!
