Just got 5 different messages from GröupMe Suppört saying I won an IPhone 11 and a link to claim it. The message was from 5 different accounts named the same and I blocked all of them. Please remove these bots and consider revamping notifications, it seems that the app thinks that there are still unread messages even though I’ve read them.
By Nicole Graziani
I love the app, though I would love to see the option to delete a message. Preferably one that DOES NOT tell others a message was deleted :/ pretty please
I’ve been using this app for probly 10 years and the last 6-8 months this app crashes 24-7 every time it is open and no update to fix it horrible service for a great app
iPad compatibility 1/5
I’m running iPadOS 14 on the new iPad Pro and the app won’t open. Tried deleting and reinstalling but the issue persists.
I get at least 10 to 15 spam messages every day from GroupMe support telling me I’ve won a free iPhone 11. I even blocked the number, and it still comes up several times a day. Ridiculous
cross platform texting without needing a dedicated app 5/5
By Mish and Mush fan
Great way to make a family chat that includes iPhones, androids, blackberrys (yes, those still exist), and basic phones. Everyone gets all the messages in the right order. If you accidentally send an emoji, it won’t ruin your message.
Best part is that you don’t have to check (or get notifications) from yet another app. It’s all in you sms.
Constantly filling my text messages but never allowing the App to show the message. I just want it on the app smh.
Great App but WILL NOT STOP CRASHING 2/5
Great app, loved it for years. However recently, the app keeps crashing every few minutes. I have no idea what’s causing it and it’s a pain to deal with. Happens both on my iPad & iPhone. Really disappointing
From 5 star to 1 2/5
I’ve used this app for years but for last 3 months I cannot receive or send messages! I’ve sent messages on my problem.
Still No iPad Slideover Support? 3/5
Please add slideover support on iPad
Great app but ONE THING IS OFF 5/5
Ok so the app is great. I use it for school and to help me stay up to date for things that due. The problem I have is that there’s no way to delete a message or anything you just hide it. Please fix this it would be great.
By Pappa bell
It’s fun to browse
Great app! 5/5
Hello! I love this App! It works great for community activities! I requested a change a about a month ago and it was just added!! So pleased with this app.
By review chu
The app is great for people that do not like using Facebook only drop back is when I add and remove people. Sometimes it will not allow me to add back the same person that is a contact I have to manually type in number and recreate the contact
I’ve been having some glitches 5/5
By #be happy and like a pineapple
I’ve loved groupme so far and it’s really helped me with staying connected to the world these days BUT there are some glitches I never acknowledged but now that I use group me all the time, I need to address them. For some reason, I’ll send a text and it’ll have that little heart beside it so I’d think it’s sent right? But apparently it doesn’t send until I send another text or something. It happened on my group chat, then it now works. Then it’s happening now on another chat with someone. I have no idea what’s going on and there aren’t any updates available for the app. Help?
One Major Glitch 3/5
I have used GroupMe throughout both high school and college. While this is a great system for mass communication, I have one fairly large issue with it: notifications. Often, no matter how many times I check a group’s messages, whether or not I respond to the group, click on individual messages, etc., a bubble with x amount of messages still remains on the home screen with all of my apps (similar to unread text messages). I would think that after so many years that this would be figured out; however, it has yet to change with any updates. If someone sees this, could they please try to figure something out.
Can’t sign in 1/5
Every time I open the app and try to sign in I get an error saying that “something went wrong please try again” and it doesn’t work. I even tried restarting the device and it still wouldn’t work. It even gives me the error before I try to sign in.

Usually good, but won’t stop crashing lately 2/5
The app crashes if I am on it for more than 30 seconds. Needs to be fixed
Inappropriate Photo 1/5
By M G K 💜💜
When I first opened the app, there was somebody named Alice Barsky who had a clearly fake and inappropriate profile picture. This chatbot thing tried sending me an inappropriate photo link. Seriously? Such a SCAM. I hate it because I cannot delete this person off of the app and I am now stuck with Alice Barsky in the freakin’ not so “HIDDEN” contacts. Thanks a ton guys...
Bug fix? 5/5
It works perfectly fine but lately I’ve been getting constant crashing. Every time I open my app and try to read the group chat for one class it just keeps crashing over and over.
Every time I attempt to play a video, the app freezes.
Terrible DM option 1/5
Never alerts people of direct messages. Don’t know how many people miss important DM cause of this app. Go WhatsApp...much better.
No notification 1/5
Notifications used to work and then out of the blue they stopped. Missed several team communications, very frustrating. Have been trying different things in the settings of the app and my phone. Nothing has seemed to work to this point. Still get nothing. No sound or balloons of new messages.
By The Lady Ferg
I have set up to get notifications numerous times and I never get them.
App keeps crashing on my I pad 3/5
I love GroupMe but with the new IOS 14 update I think the app is having difficulty working. Please fix with an update soon! I can’t access GroupMe at all and its very inconvenient.
GroupMe support 1/5
By dont need an iphone
I don’t need 20 messages a day from the GroupMe support telling me I am eligible to win an IPhone
Allows for Inclusivity 4/5
I own an iPhone and have always had a difficult time receiving messages from non-iPhones. This has been my savior because I now receive messages from all devices!
It’s a great way to keep connected with my Bible Study group. I absolutely love it 💕
PLEASE PLEASE add an @everyone feature! This app is super useful, but having to manually @ everyone is super annoying. Please add this feature, it would be amazing
They lie about saving contacts 1/5
By Timehop tom
They ask if they can look at your contact and not save them. I disable the setting on my device and my contacts still appear in the app. This is not okay, and should be removed from the App Store for straight up breaking the App Store rules for clearly stating to the user how they use their data.
Notifications Issue. 1/5
By I'm so tired.
Would be fine, but I’m so annoyed that even when I check my chats, sometimes notifications won’t go away for DAYS and those little red numbers just sit there. Even marking the chats as read will do nothing, and it’s so annoying I got this one star review gets the attention of the developers.
Great but watch out 3/5
By scams arent a joke
This app is amazing for large group chats. The thing about it though is random people can message you. I’ve gotten several scams saying I’ve won things. Maybe y’all should add a private feature that only lets you join a group if one person is in your contacts. I love this app but very dangerous if you aren’t smart.
Was Good/then bad.. 1/5
Been using groupme for years as a family social platform as a way to update eachother on family news and it was fun. Then all of the sudden ive been getting spam measages from groupme support saying youve been selected to get a free phone for only $1. Basically Groupme is letting spam people mine for your information and that is not cool. I will no longet use this platform!! Its a new moral low letting people try to trick you into gathering your personal info. Goodbye Groupme!!!!!
I love GroupMe, but it’s constantly crashing 4/5
I absolutely love GroupMe!!! However, it often crashes. In the last 2 minutes, the GroupMe app crashed 4 times for me.
It wasn’t great to begin with but now I can’t even add members to a new group. Please fix!
Update doesn’t work for me 3/5
I’ve updated the app but I still can’t create special polls such as public voting or “select all that apply”
I can still vote in those polls if other people made them, which I couldn’t do before updating the app.
Why does the update not work for some people?
Great app but hers a suggestion for a future update 5/5
I been using GroupMe for a long time since high school it’s a great app that helps you communicate professionally I try to use it in every aspect. I would like to make a suggestion that i thing may os user would love if we could pin and prioritize our chats so I would loose out on important discussions, also I know you already have a feature that all you to mention someone while responding to a message but i would like a thread feature as well I’m really looking forward to it.
No delete option 1/5
This app would be top notch If there was a delete button
Perfect for academics!!
Love the app accept you can’t delete messages 4/5
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!
Lacks Maturity 1/5
GroupMe- I don’t understand how your app has been around so long but yet you are lacking so many relevant and useful features that are present and functioning well on younger apps such as Telegram. One Example: The fact that I can only Hide a conversation and not Delete it makes me question your decision making. For goodness sake and lack of a better phrase, your app needs to grow up and mature. This is embarrassing.
Could be a little better 4/5
By Esther Ogb
1. I have GroupMe on my iPad and Android, but when I’ve read messages on one device, it still remains listed as unread in the other device. This happens for the same group chats.
2. Direct messages that I receive from individuals are always sitting below my group messages. I don’t get the blue square next to my direct messages to indicate that I should look at them. I end up finding them days/weeks later after perusing through my looong list of group and direct messages.
App keeps crashing upon launch. Please make sure to always QA in the latest IOS. 1/5

Awful non existent customer service 1/5
If you ever have trouble accessing your account, they will never email you back. Microsoft can’t help you either.
Crashes While Trying to Read Messages 3/5
I love GroupMe and if it wasn’t for this one issue I would have given it 5 stars. I’ve updated my app so it’s all up to date and updated iOS so that’s also up to date. However whenever I open up the app to read my messages it crashes within a minute or two. And then I have to reopen it just to try to read the messages again and it does the same thing. It takes me so much longer to read and respond to my messages because of this bug and it’s super frustrating. Please fix this GroupMe!!
Cannot delete unwanted chats 1/5
Beware.... this supposed to be an app for school use primarily and I have an unsolicited group chat asking to see nudes and I cannot remove it, all I was able to do is put it on hide. I sent in a ticket to complain and have never received any help on how to remove these predatory chat. If it wasn’t for this the app works just fine otherwise. Can’t rate higher until something is done about removing unwanted chat group invitations.
Won’t work 1/5
Won’t work anymore
Great but can’t delete comments 3/5
GroupMe is fantastic and I’ve been using it for years.. but as an avid user and admin of several groups I’m frustrated that comments can’t be deleted by the admin or author. Please consider changing this!
