I has been a wonderful way to communicate and share information among family members.
Not surprised but still disappointed 1/5
Listen I wasn’t expecting much from this app I was just forced to get it because of school. Now everything is going well until I get blown up by a scammer going by “GröupMe Suppört” saying I won a free iphone. This would be fine to deal with if I could block them but no matter how much I try to they just keep on spamming me. NOT TO INCLUDE there is no easy way to locate a report button where I could report this bot or person, and even when I TRY and look up how to report someone I still can’t figure out how to. Either way it’s still extremely annoying that I’m being blown up by “yOu haVe BeeN cHoosEn tO reCivE aN IPHoNe 12 CliCk hErE tO claIM” now I’ll have no way to figure out what’s happening in my class without my phone being absolutely blown to pieces from all the spam messages I’m getting.
Importing gifs doesn’t work 4/5
I used to be able to go to google download a gif and post it in group chat, now when I try it’s no longer a gif it’s a still image...
Not the controls I wanted. 1/5
By blow up recipient inboxes
I wanted to send a one time, one way message to family and friends to alert them our baby was born. I set it up ahead of time. As soon as I CREATED the group, everyone was notified of it. I didn’t even send a message. Not what I wanted! Didn’t know that Group Me would do that and I couldn’t disable group replies. Had to shut the whole thing down. Not the app I was looking for and I wish it had notified me it was alerting the whole group through a text.
These people tried to scam me by sending me a message I was chosen for an iPhone 12 and had to pay for shipping! SCAMMERS!!!!
Doesn’t always show messages or update 3/5
It’s fine and all but for some reason I’ll get a notification that someone sent a message either directly or in a group and when I open up the app it isn’t there! So I try exiting the app, refreshing the page, even the conversation and nothing will show. It’ll take a few minutes or hours later to show the message. It drives me crazy and made me consider switching apps.
Will not let me add members 1/5
I’ve literally never written a review for anything before but I feel compelled. I use GroupMe for work and it fails to do what I need (send messages, add members specifically) about 90% of the time. When it DOES work I actually get excited that I finally had success. This happens regardless of what network I’m connected to, where I am, where the other user is...
The app is hacked 1/5
By Voxer User JS
Since 7 pm last night to 7 am this morning I’ve gotten 19 spam messages from ‘GröupMe Suppört’ where I can supposedly try and win an iPhone 12. We’ve blocked them each time and they keep coming through with the same name and message.
That aside, I wish you could delete posts. Sometimes people post items on the wrong group.
I love the app and it’s amazing! There’s one thing though, I always get scam texts from “gròûp me support”. It always says tap this link to claim your free IPhone 12, then when you tap on it it takes your through a survey . Then want to tap on a button to claim it and ITS A SCAM. GroupMe please stop scamming people.
Hacking and App Crashing 1/5
By annie 888888888888
I’ve been using Groupme for over a year to communicate with other students. I no issues with the app at first, but for the past two months the app keeps crashing seconds after I open it. The more pressing issue is hacking. This is now the second time I’ve woken up to see I was added to a group, not affiliated with my school, where racist slurs, nudes, and threats of hacking are sent. Can there be a safety feature to prevent being forced into a group? Also can you get rid of this hacker?
Connected Always 3/5
By Ms. Euroclydon
Group me is a way to stay connected to whatever group you are apart of.
Starting to get buggy 2/5
Groupme has been so great for so long! Biggest plus is combing iPhone and Android users in a single interface.
However, I do believe Groupme is lucky to be the first in the sphere because they’re are far better chat apps.
Bugs: 1) On iPhone, viewing a calendar event immediately cause the whole app to glitch and lag when scrolling. 2) On iPhone, (null) is randomly inserted at the top of calendar events
Grievances: 1) Messages can not be deleted or hidden, so don’t accidentally send anything in a group message 2) Calendar events blow up the group message because for some reason Groupme has to show a message for everyone’s decision about going or not going to an event, this should all be within the calendar event itself. 3) No user groups, only admin and commoners
Overall not a bad app. Disappointing that it’s been out for years and still hasn’t fixed some pretty basic issues.
Great for groups, the app itself is average 3/5
By big papa 0316
Messages won’t send from time to time and I have to leave a conversation, refresh the app and enter in the conversation to see a message I posted
Unable to access group anymore 3/5
The app worked for me great for quite a while. As of yesterday, I couldn’t see any messages posted in a group by my friends. I could only see what was being posted in my notifications bar. Usually I could select the notification and it would take me to the app. There, I’d be able to view the full message that was sent, along with other prior messages. Now if I select the message, I’m not able to see it in the GroupMe messages.
I closed the app and reopened. This didn’t fix the problem. I checked my settings- and nothing appeared to be different than prior to this issue. Since nothing else worked, I uninstalled the app completely - which wipes out all of your chat conversations completely. I assumed once reinstalling I’d be able to be added back to the group. Unfortunately that didn’t work.
I was removed and added back to the group by 3 separate people - and I still can only see what’s posted from my notification bar. The group no longer shows in my GroupMe app either.
Not sure how to get this corrected, but to ask for everyone to start a new group on my behalf - shouldn’t be the way to correct it.
This is an awesome app for groups to communicate for personal and business purposes.
It’s really good, actually awesome. I use it for my sports team but I thing you guys should make an option to dislike texts. I don’t know me and my sports team are weird and think that would be awesome.
Has issues but a good framework 3/5
By Alqua post
The app is good overall and has many great features. The layout is simple and easy to use and keeps everything organized. However, the app has been having repeated issues of closing randomly when opening a group and lagging often. If these and other technical issues are fixed, it would be a 5/5!
Sharing links aren’t working 1/5
At first when I got the app and shared links to join they were working, but now the shared links are saying they are invalid when I or anyone else sends them. So there’s no way to join others chats.
Update didn’t fix all the bugs 2/5
The new update didn’t seem to fix the bugs. My app constantly shut down in the middle of trying to use it and the notification doesn’t go away when you open the messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and logged out to try to fix this.
Problems with the update 1/5
I loved the app until today. The update removed me from my groups and deleted all my conversations. Urg.
Great App!! 5/5
By Coach BlueWho Baltimore MD
I recommend this app to everyone, very easy to learn, negative through, search, add, remove guess, and communicate. Been using this app to run my league since 2014 and still running strong!
Good app but could use some important improvements! 4/5
I’ve used this app for years for both school and now work, and it’s pretty convenient and useful, especially for cross platform or for people without smartphones. There are a few things I feel they could implement to really improve the app:
1. Allow us to delete messages without leaving a chat or blocking a person. I have tons of groups I just don’t need on my home page and then hide function doesn’t work. I also have individual chats I want to delete without removing the person from my contacts.
2. Adding the ability to dislike a message or a yes or no function without using a poll. I think this would be especially helpful for work groups where you’re volunteering or saying you are or aren’t available.
Broke again 3/5
By Amp Dr.
Latest update broke more than it fixed. All my hidden stuff is back. Why can’t we permanently delete threads?
I hate it 1/5
I hate it
Buggy trash 1/5
This app blows. I made an account and it wont let me log in, so i tried making another account through my facebook and it wouldnt let me log into that one either. I dont get how you can have an app that wont let you log in.
Major security breach the app récords your screen. 1/5
This app silently records your screen without proper permission. Violating all sorts of privacy concerns. Run away from this app ASAP.
Needs Fixing 4/5
By Slick 1
GroupMe needs repairs to fix some bugs. Now when there is an image/photo connected with a calendar event and the screen is on the event, there is flickering of the image/photo. Somehow this bug also prevents users to save the event to our calendars. We also cannot respond YES or NO until that screen is closed and we go back to the main chat of that group. Once we have that group chat screen open, we can respond if we are going. BTW, the image associated with the event doesn’t flicker in the group chat, only in the event window.
Great group messaging app! 5/5
We use it for scouts and it works great! Some scouts don’t have cell phones so it sends to their email instead. So great since most messaging apps don’t allow that flexibility. Only one feature I would like to see, I wish there was a setting to not allow messages before a set time and then it would just hold messages till after the set time then automatically send. The adults keep forgetting not to send messages to the scouts during school.... Thanks!
Good app, but... 3/5
This app crashes quite frequently! I think it’s when I have a lot of messages but that’s when I need it to work! Please fix
Obsessed with Retaining Everything 1/5
Why are companies obsessed with retaining everything. Deleting a thread over 3 years should be simple. Why am I not allowed to delete my own thread. I don’t want to hide a thread I will no longer chat in. These companies offer great platforms at the expense of tracking, retaining, and privacy prying.
By Henry Slendenbaugh
Been using GroupMe for years and it’s still missing one thing from being a 5-star app....the ability to “DELETE” individual threads instead of hiding them. They always seem to unhide themselves after a certain amount of days.
It’s alright 3/5
By Simple Melina
Three things missing..
1. No-limit word count
2. Voice message
3. Webcam (Instagram-like split screen)
Perhaps an update on the emojis?
I need my GroupMe app back.How can I get it back on my phone 5/5
By Dillon Hane
I need my group me app in my app on my iPhone how can I put it back on my iPhone
It’s great but... 3/5
So whenever I get a notification from the app from my home screen and I get out of the app, it always keeps a little notification there. But like this only happens when I click on the notification from my Home Screen. So if you don’t know what I mean, when you get a notification from an app there is a little 1 that shows up on the corner of the app. So whenever I go to app from my home screen it keeps that little 1 on the corner and doesn’t leave. So now I have to delete the app then get it back. I hope you can change this.
Add Share Feature Back 1/5
The ability to share to GroupMe from the share menu has been removed, and it’s a feature I use quite frequently. I would like to see it added back so I can continue to easily share links to my groups directly from the source. I currently have to copy and paste any links directly into the app.
GroupMe Calendar Bug 3/5
Please fix the issue where the Calendar in the app doesn’t allow you to copy paste anymore and also where you make an event and it says (null) at the top every time.

A Place where I am growing spiritually 5/5
By Minister Guthrie
Every time I come on The Issachar Prayerline my soul is Blessed Spiritually. This Prayerline is teaching us how to strategically target prayers Globally. Even current event prayers those prayers that are needed to be addressed immediately, therefore it is a line that keeps us on High alert and Attentive to the things that concern God and His People. In Jesus Christ Mighty Name Amen!!!!!
Allow deleting messages 5/5
Please allow deleting messages! I don’t care if it takes a year, 30 days, a personal request or what. These old threads clutter the app and literally nobody else does this.
Let us delete messages please!
Incredibly glitchy 2/5
By Y0ur g1rl
I love the format of the app and really wanted it to work for a professional work group chat but this app is so incredibly glitchy. Half of the people in the group can’t access it but from the admins end it says they are already added and can’t be re-added. Not only that but the admin was no longer able to access the app either because it disappeared on her end. Not much of a group chat if only a handful of people are able to use it. It makes it very hard to keep things professional
Very buggy 2/5
I use this app to communicate with my clients. Sadly it constantly refuses to add people into a group chat to make it easier for mass messaging and it also freezes when i try to add someone via a link instead of QR code.
Because of this it makes it difficult to communicate with my clients on one platform. i would use whatsapp instead but my other job uses it and i want to avoid confusion.
Not Encrypted End-to-end 2/5
Hi there! I've been a GroupMe user for about 5-6 years, and I've very much enjoyed the app. I'm happy to have seen some recent features added such as having the ability to reply to messages, improved polling, and the seasonal like buttons (Christmas tree, jack-o'-lantern, etc.) However, GM, in my opinion, is lacking one of the most important features - end-to-end encryption. Given today's digital and socio-political environment, it is extremely important to safeguard user's privacy and safety. This must be done through decentralized platforms. Platforms that give users the trust and ability to use their communication channels without the worry of having data compromised. I would perhaps have given a 3.75 or 4 stars if this decentralized privacy feature was enabled. Thank you - hope to see these innovative changes soon!
Great app 5/5
It’s an excellent platform. It is easy and fun to use. It’s great for communicating with colleagues, project buddies, and friends.
I keep getting messages from GroupMe support group. Offering me prizes. Muting it won’t work. -_-
Shouldn’t be tracking my device ID 1/5
By Isaac Gray
GroupMe collects a lot of telemetry and private user data. Their conversations aren’t even end-to-end encrypted. I’ve since switched to Signal.
By senate janitor
I would like to see GroupMe be more Instagram friendly and YouTube friendly; like see videos within chat and not be directed to another page. Also it is not so optimized for iPhone 12. When I post a message, it takes a while for the message to appear, and I’m tempted to re-type it. A several seconds and a refresh later it will show. Also settings could be improved. Editing group name acts weird. I can’t see what I type and saving the new details pulls up an error. However, refreshing it shows my edit has been saved.
Not having a good experience! 1/5
My app wont stay online and I’m not getting messages?
Plz fix all my chats are gone!! 1/5
By Chi town R3n3gade
All of my chats have disappeared, please fix ASAP.
The android version is more intuitive and user friendly.
