Great app! I use it everyday. Just wish you could delete your own message.
CHS group 5/5
Best way to keep in touch for our club
Great for work groups 5/5
Perfect to post when I need a shift covered at work. Also was a big help during Irma and checking in with over 85 employees. Saved me from having to call everyone 2x a day. Only hiccup now is that my profile pic keeps defaulting to something old but no biggie.
Add Bookmarks / Search within individual chat 4/5
I would like to be able to see which comments I've liked.
Or the option to bookmark comments so I can view them later.
Would also like a search function within individual group chats. Scrolling up until you maybe find the convo you're looking for is annoying. Especially when you already know what you're looking for.
Love the app - need an edit feature 4/5
This app is great! Love being able to carry on multiple chats with my large work groups. Would love to see an edit feature!
Okay app- but there are better ones 3/5
Using it only because most people, esp college students use it in the US. I only like the fact that your phone number isn’t visible to other people in a group, and that you can find other people who you are in multiple groups with easily. However it has quite a number of glitches. It takes time to open messages even on the fastest of phones, but is a little better on a computer.
I think telegram is a much better and cleaner app, WhatsApp is the best- save for privacy
Update removed ability to change the topic easily 1/5
By Bob Diddlebock
Please bring back the ability to change group topics without going into the settings
Review Group me! 5/5
By Shala S
Very instrumental in getting to interact with family and friends!😀
Drains battery 3/5
Love the app and find it super useful! But it will tank my battery like no other. I have to use GroupMe for work, and I’ll be lucky if my phone doesn’t go from a full charge to completely dead in a 5-hour shift.
App works fine, but keeps bugging me to rate it though, so 1 star.
Great App one suggestion... 4/5
By Frustrated jjj
I've loved using this app but would love a feature where you could force a message to go to entire group... I use it for my church group and when getting everyone into the group & people responding two people were kicked out... I'm sure before they even saw the texts? Now I can't seem to get them into the group so they will receive texts...
App needs to be fixed 1/5
I keep getting kicked out of new groups I’ve been added to and I’m still able to see threads of groups I’ve removed myself from. I’ve contacted their customer support and still have not gotten a response a week later.
Work & Personal 5/5
By Noodle Ice
I love GroupMe and use it for both work and play. It's awesome to be able to access any group from my phone or computer and not have to deal with massive group texts.
Updates I would love to see:
1) Polls have been a great addition — one request would be to make it do you can choose multiple options. If you could turn the feature off/on as need per poll. For example, if I am trying to figure out a date that works for lunch for a group I am in, I want them to be able to choose all the days that work for them and not just one. The work around for that right now is just posting the dates as separate messages and having them each heart what works for them, but I seems like this would be a simple addition to the polls. Also being able to see who voted for what if you created the poll would be awesome.
2) I would also love the ability to make announcement groups where only the owner can post and it would be used to just post information so that with larger groups I can control the notifications.
3) Notification preference update (like Slack) would be nice, where you only get push notifications when someone mentions you.
4) Copying a exhausting member list to a new group would be great, so membership could be easier to maintain across multiple groups.
5) Google contacts integration.
6) Be able to alert everyone in a group with @All or @Group to make larger announcements.
Love this app, it's awesome!
Great app 4/5
Great app - wonderful for small groups to keep in touch. For larger groups, would it be possible to make adding events to the calendar easier, and also allowing an option for recurring events?
Don’t want to be bothered with constant useless info.
I don't like how you can't delete a posted picture or video
Connecting with others 5/5
Love using this app to connect with others
Fix your app 1/5
The app lately has been glitching. the old groups I’ve shut down keep reappearing and guys are still able to get into them. the new group I made last night has been telling me I’m no longer in the group meanwhile I’m the admin then is shows up like nothing a couple minutes later. If this could be addressed that would be great
Just two more thing 4/5
I've been using this app for a long time and love it. However there's one issue I have with it; I use the app on both my iPad and my iPhone and it would be awesome if when I read a message on my iPhone, I didn't then have to go and mark the message as read on my iPad as well. Second, being a bale to use groupme with the multitasking features on the iPad would be great. Thanks for a great app!
Fix the App! 3/5
I’ve had no problems with this app for over two years until now. Just recently I was in a chat, and then it says, “error cannot refresh chat, please try again” and then it says, “you are no longer in the group” and then my chat disappears. I tried everything, restarting my phone, deleting the app and reinstalling and I still have the same issue. Please fix this!! it’s really annoying!! I’m giving you 3 stars until this is fixed!
My favorite social app, but this update messed things up. 1/5
I love GM. But I should have never updated.
Now it just randomly disconnects and sometimes some of my groups disappear temporarily.
I love GroupMe! Please don't change it! 5/5
I LOVE GroupMe! It's by far my favorite messaging app. My biggest worry is that you'll change it to be like the new Skype app. PLEASE DON'T. It had to delete Skype because the new update removed everything that was useful to me. Please please please leave GroupMe alone!
Bold Decision 3/5
The most recent update to bold the entire message if you get an @ is a confusing one. Some user names are spaced out so you can’t tell which part is the message or username. I would suggest leaving the @ name in bold but making the message italic, if making them stand out was an issue. Entire message should not be bold.
MP3 Files not supported 4/5
Great app! But I was trying to send some sound MP3 files and I got a message that those files are not supported even if they were in Dropbox. Also, could you make iCloud Files available to send attachments? Thank you.
Lacks a lot of features. 2/5
It is not easy to send a message to a single person or group of people. You have to setup a completely separate group.
Thanks for updating! 5/5
By Eiffel Tower
Thank you for updating your app! I can't wait to try it out.
By M.H. Barker
It’s ridiculous I can’t block numbers on this app. I’ve read the support boards on how to, but it doesn’t work.
Need split screen 1/5
By Caleb Gell
Love the app on desktop and mobile but you need to add split screen for iPad.
One bug 4/5
Really amazing app. I use it for a lot of different groups. One bug I’ve found is that in one of my groups it continuously tells me, and my peers that we are removed from the group, then with a refresh we are back in. Other than that one bug it’s great👍🏼 hopefully they’ll get an update out to fix it!!
New to App 4/5
We are using it for bible study messages and family vacations. With sixteen of us it has been fun.
But we noticed a few Hiccups- limited internet caused drop in some messages, some members had to reload the app several times to join the group
Good app, major security flaw 2/5
GroupMe provides no way to force devices to log out.
I had a friend recently lose a phone with some sensitive groupme conversations. They couldn't find any command to logout their account across all devices, so they changed their password on their computer. To test if this works, I changed my password and it didn't. My iPhone GroupMe is logged in even though it's session was established with a password that is now invalid.
New group chats keep crashing 3/5
I've been using the app for years but new group chats keep crashing every 60 seconds or so (You are no longer in this group). I've deleted the app, re downloaded it, turned off my phone etc.. but it still happens. It's not just me. It happens to every member in the new group chats. The chats that I've been in for years still work fine. Please fix!
not a fan 2/5
Shames you into using the app more by telling your friends when you mute them. No useful features over fb messenger.
bug fix 1/5
By Shan Band
groupme is great, but it keeps kicking me out of all of the groups i create
Absolutely love this app I work at a coffee shop and it's absolutely brilliant for getting me and all of my coworkers and manager an easier way to communicate together. Thank you very much
5 stars just not up to it 1/5
I lost all my friends text doesn't express emotion.
Best ever 5/5
GroupMe is awesome! I love it!
Broken app. 1/5
By El Nobiles Imperatoris
I have had a GroupMe for a long time and my Cross Country team uses it to get useful information out to us all in a timely and organized manner. Today we setup a new chat for the varsity runners going into state series and the group has glitched me out multiple times. I have checked that my version was up to date and also deleted the app and reinstalled it. I was able to read the chat for about two minutes when it glitched out again. I texted a few of my teammates and it is happening to them too. I’m sorry to say it, but if I can’t access this information I will have to take my messaging to another app. I really hope this is fixed so I can keep using it. Not only have I had it for years, but it is convenient as well. It would be a sad day if I had to permanently get rid of the app.
Great, but it keeps kicking me out of my groups! 4/5
when i go to check my chats, it displays chats that have been hidden and that i’ve previously left, and the chats i’m currently in, it kicks me out of and an error pops up saying “you are no longer in this group”. now, i can fix this if i go back to the overview of my groups and re-enter the chat, but this happens every time i open groupme and is annoying! please look into this!
It’s convenient. 5/5
By AZURE HZE
There are a lot of apps concentrated on the fancy function. However, I don’t need them at all. The simple and well designed app is enough.
No good 1/5
Asked me three times within 2 minutes to leave a review. Finally I relented
Easy To Use 5/5
By Warrior Maiden
Loving this app
I don’t have fb so I
Love using this in lieu of social media to communicate with my group
Very easy to use
You can private message if needed, “like” each other’s posts, post photos, etc
It’s super simple
Everything u need and nothing u don’t
There are times it would send me a notification saying that I was no longer part of a group when I still was
Kinda mad! 2/5
By 😍love boat 😍
One of my chats keep deleting its self!! It’s the chat for my wedding!!! To make announcements and planning and all that!!
New Group Issues 4/5
Made a new group with new update and the app keeps removing and adding ppl back it is very buggy
Add a statistics tab of groups to see how many msgs or average hearts members have
Not a bad piece of gear 5/5
By DEAD FROG JESUS CORPSE
This is used in the military to help with word
By Kesch Money Taking Ova FaDa 99
GroupMe is great. The bugs not so much. The app keeps kicking me and various members out of a group I created. I'm also having to add the same people multiple times. Please fix asap! :)
