4.5 Rating: 4.5 - 1,428,010 votes

If you want to install and use the GroupMe app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type GroupMe in the search bar and press Search. Click on GroupMe application icon. A window of GroupMe on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Great App, but could be even better

    By jsmit5635
    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, would love more admin privileges

    By douglasallison12
    I work with students, teachers and other types of groups with leaders and so have several groups going. The app has helped with organization, collaboration and of course communication. I get more done because of GroupMe. It is so much more effective than email. My plea/suggestion is this: please allow chat admins to configure a chat so that only they can post messages and the rest of the group can “like” or participate in polls and such. With students, it’s easy to get chatter going that puts the number of messages into the hundreds and thousands and they’re just messing around. Then the substantive messages get lost so that the people who persevere have a terrible time sorting out the fluff from the real stuff while other people understandably set notifications to “do not disturb” or leave the chat altogether. I’d like to be able to set a chat with several dozen people for one-way communication and have another group where everyone can chatter and ask/answer questions. That would help my job a ton!
  • Locked Me Out!!! 😡🔐

    By Sabor Místico
    I have always used my email account to log into GroupMe, and have never had a problem before. However, now I am locked out of my account on all my iOS devices - even though I continue to receive all my alerts. It’s all tied to the phone number attached to my account. Ugh!! Additionally, having your phone number attached to your GroupMe account is insecure for us because anyone in the group can go into the settings and see it. It is perfectly possible to want to participate in a group chat without wanting to divulge your phone # to other participants. Did you never think of this? Such is the case with me - and to my chagrin there have been people who have used the app to find out my phone # and call me when I did not want that. So if security is your concern, why aren’t you addressing that? Finally, there are clearly far too many people locked out of our own accounts, and this isn’t a coincidence. It is all tied to a sign-in system rigidly tied to the use of our phone numbers - and it ISN’T working. Find us some workable solutions with better options because this is awful!! A one ⭐️ rating is much more than this app deserves at the this time.
  • GET THIS APP ASAP Read this if you are interested in getting this app!

    By Sweet Skye
    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!

    Thanks for fixing verifications codes! Some ideas I wish were implemented: ~Allow anyone to delete a group, especially and mostly if it hasn’t been used in years ~If you leave or are removed from a group, have all your messages deleted from the group too ~Allow anyone to delete their sent and received messages ~When you delete your GroupMe account, have all your sent and received messages deleted in addition to all your info ~When blocking someone, have it hide all their future messages in the group as well (daily meme spam is no fun) ~Search features for messages, if you need to refer to an old message, scrolling forever is the only way to find it
  • The best

    By rbrown8783
    The best group messaging app I’ve ever used!
  • Needs just a little improvement

    By Nostalgic Gamer 2.0
    I noticed recently that the notification circle that appears when you have unread notifications on your home screen is staying there when there aren’t any new messages. I’m in multiple groups on GroupMe and it seems to be restating that old notifications are still new. The solution that I’ve discovered is to go to each group that I’m in and check the messages that are marked “new.” This is the only issue I have with the app. I’m using an iPhone 7. Thank you for your time.
  • Search options

    By Roco283
    Is there a way to search for key words on chats to reference a previous conversation?
  • Wish we could “EDIT” posts and replay videos within the Gallery

    By Tekeela71
    Wish you all would make it so that we could edit a post so if we misspell something or forget to type a word in our posts we could go back and correct it. **ALSO, why won’t the videos replay when you find them in the Gallery within the chat??? PLEASE fix this so that a video can be replayed within the Gallery so you don’t have to scroll all the way back to find a video to replay it!!! Other than this one issue, the app functions very well.
  • GroupMe wonderful

    By AA/||..~
    Grate app for everything
  • Needs some notification updates

    By cothalesr
    Needs to add grouped notification support for iOS. Needs to make notification settings more clear. Have multiple options like “all messages”, “only mentions”, “none”.
  • Vacation Group

    By JunglecatChatt
    Our group recently used this app on a cruise. It was a great way to stay in communication on the ship and anywhere around it that had service. We were able to coordinate group meetings as well as have individual conversations.
  • Can’t tell if the people we send the message to has read the message or not.

    By D Oey
    It’d be nice if we can find out whether the message has been read or not.
  • Good app

    By VicG97
    I have been using this app for a really long time and it is a great app! But, with the new update it has complete erased all of my contacts from passed conversations and all of my current conversations. I have had this app since 2015 and had a lot of information that I needed and is now gone.
