Every update 1/5
Every time there’s an update, all the group chats and direct messages you have will reappear again. I have to hide them all over again everytime and it’s so annoying. I like keeping the app organized with chats I know are still active but Groupme reverts them every update.
Crap app 1/5
This app never clears read messages. Very annoying.
It’s not Slack, but it’s okay 3/5
A lot of the features of Slack are missing, such as granular notifications settings (e.g., turning off notifications except for when you or a channel you’re in gets tagged). Not a terrible app by any means, but I’d rather use Slack.
For a summer job, I got the app to communicate with the a manager and other workers, it took me and my mom two whole weeks to sign in. Other than that, the app works well
Not Working Correctly 2/5
By Mari 🤘🏾
It won’t show my work group in the app but will send messages through as text
Amazing 👍 5/5
By Abram hill
This app is an amazing way to keep in touch with multiple people or just to keep in touch with anyone, great app. Would recommend!
Good app but features removed 1/5
I use GroupMe a lot and overall it’s been quite pleasant. However the removal of the ability to share photos and videos from the Files app is absolutely unacceptable and I can’t give it a good rating until this is fixed. My use case for the app requires I use this feature quite often and this feature removal makes things much more tedious. Please add this feature back.
extremely slow and useless 1/5
Given my phone is an iphone 7, some apps run slower but groupme simply does not work at all on my phone.
It is horrible just use google teams
WHY would you guys change/lower the video file size in chats? Before these last 2 updates we were able to over write the “file to large” message buy just sending it anyway.. now you can’t just send longer videos. Come on that was a HUGE pro in GroupMe now we can’t enjoy sending longer video files 👎🏼
Where is the contact Support?!? 1/5
I’ve used this app for the past 7 years of my life. I throughly enjoyed using it to connect with all different groups of friends regarding meet-ups, vacations, and other assortment of plans. It’s a great communicator in that sense to keep you informed with your various groups within your own life.
However, the past three years of my life, I’ve been constantly harassed by a friend who has gone a bit psychotic in the past couple of years and has been diagnosed schizophrenic and bi-polar. He will constantly create new accounts every day literally telling me “to kill myself” or “that my life has no meaning and I should just end it.” I wake up every morning to a new account sending me that same old message. I’ve tried countlessly to report the accounts or block them but the next day happens the exact same. It feels like a horrific groundhogs day effect. GroupMe support has never once responded to my feedback request or contact support requests.
It’s frustrating because I love using this app, but had to delete because I need to stop hearing hate messages from an ex-friend who won’t stop harassing me on your app.
Messages Disappearing 2/5
I've been using this app for quite a while with online classes, but for some reason my private messages keep disappearing. I see the notification on my phone pop up, but once I go to the app it's not there anymore. It's quite frustrating because sometimes these private messages are quite important. Please fix this.
Great way to stay connected 5/5
By wutz real
I’m constantly getting new opportunities on a daily through my app group me. It helps me stay connected to the industry that I’m in and a great way to meet new people.
Need better security against hacking 5/5
Love the app but better security against hackers is definitely needed
Love that I can connect with my fellow teammates
No customer support 1/5
So used GroupMe in past and lived it. After 2 years was invited to a group. Would not work despite updating app and removing /adding it back. Logged out and tried signing in. Wrong password but it would not let me reset AND could not create new account because same cell. Emailed customer support. Five hours later got a response to reset password🤦🏼♀️. Emailed a second time during working hours…5 hours later no response.
Randomly works 1/5
I’ve had this app for 2-3 years and it seldom works properly. Amazing as good as Skype is they can’t fix the bugs with this. Although Skype doesn’t stand a chance compared to WeChat.
Great app! 5/5
This is a great way to keep in touch on kids events!
The app glitches 3/5
By Trixy bubble 👌
I always thought Group me was amazingly great, but now I’d say it’s just great... now it glitches and we’ll that’s “great”.
I used to enjoy this app honestly but ever since the last few months I’ve been experiencing weird, random glitches, when using the app on my phone.
After a while you get tired of it. I don’t experience these kind’ve issues on my computer. When I’m on my phone I’ll go in and then it says “Welcome, you look great today, ####” and then it kicks me out the app.
This error or bug, is a serious issue for the app if it wants to continue gaining users.
Not to mention this happens numerous times.
I also notice group me rarely has updates. It will not let you preview backgrounds in group chats.
If updates were added maybe a greater # of people would keep the app. I hope my feedback was helpful, and that the company will know my honest perspective.
The app is great, there just needs to be, equal time. Thank you
Cant clear chat history 1/5
Option to cheat out a chat is now gone. Bring it back. I don’t want to hide it I want to clear it
Can’t delete contacts or chats 1/5
No dark mode.
I have colleagues from a previous job that I never want to speak to again, and friends I don’t want to be reminded about. Yet they’re clogging up my contacts. I can block them, but they still show in Contacts just with an “Unblock” button now added.
Can’t delete messages 1/5
Can’t delete messages. It’s 2021. Wow.
Accessibility Options are Lacking 2/5
By doc n training
No true dark mode, no ability to change fonts or sizes of fonts, colored themes, notification preferences. It’s either iOS settings (without using iOS true black) or nothing. For an app based around messaging, it sure doesn’t do anything else to make it enjoyable or customizable
A review of this app 5/5
By Snipsey Maine
Add number to contacts 3/5
I’m unable to add a number from chat to my contacts. When I tap “add the contacts,” the keyboard comes up but the screen doesn’t change.
Deleted the Chats 4/5
Y’all... pls provide a delete chat button. Hiding doesn’t do anything for us.
I love this app! The only problem is the that it asked me how old I was and then said it was suspending me because I was under age! The app is rated 4+! I am 12!!!!!!!! But other than that it is alright. The only thing I would recommend adding how to send a request to invite someone to join. Some of my friends don’t have text but can get app similar to this. How am I suppose to invite them? Maybe there is a simpler way tan sending an invite through text. But I haven’t found that! One bother thing- every now and then it turns my group on silent and then I don’t look to see if I got any messages. These two problems make me frustrated! But I love how there are no adds and that no one can just suddenly start a group with you unless you are in a group with them already. So that makes it safe. I would rate this game a 3.7 star review.
Excellent Form Of Communication
By Elp Mac
This app is a great way to keep all in touch with what’s going on, especially for those challenged by timing due to other responsibilities.. It allows all to be where they are needed, and disallow those that would say; “I didn’t know”.
Date of Birth (DOB) 4/5
Why is the app asking me for my DOB? There is no way I would ever send that kind of PII to any Social Media App.
I just thought you should know it was asking for it.
Technical glitch 1/5
I downloaded this app for communicating to group classes. I thought it was going to work well however when I tried to add several contacts I received an error message. I spent 10 minutes trying to overcome the error and it didn’t work. I also couldn’t figure out how to send a link to invite these contacts. This app is supposed to work without having to download the app. I don’t believe this to be true. I’m using the iPhone XR. I’ve since deleted the app.
By Juliana Abraham
The app says 4+ however I put my age in (13) and it logged me out and I cannot make a new account. WHY WOULD IT LIE TO ME?!?!?! I am just trying to join a team groupchat but ig i cant. I HOPE TH
I’m at home 5/5

Got ready for summer school
Removed from group? 2/5
Why do I have to reply or get dropped from the group? I just want to see updates from our group leader. I don’t need to reply and I don’t need to see everyone’s replies so that they don’t get removed. It clogs up the feed.
It’s good 3/5
By Charley Hickensen
It’s not that I don’t like it it’s just that I don’t need it a lot. It’s just not something I enjoy using so I don’t think I need to give it a super rating for what I use it for.
SEARCH MESSAGES BROKEN 1/5
I can’t search old messages / load more messages since the update. fix this bug
Tech issues 1/5
I’ve been having a lot of issues with this app failing to update within the group messages and I’ve been missing important info because of it. Never had this issue in years past. I’ve ran updates and I have a new phone. Not sure why it’s hit or miss with receiving the group messages and the group chat updating as they come in.
Invalid Ph# 1/5
Was asked by work to use this App. Tried for 2 hours to create a account. Kept getting invalid Ph#. And or when it created a text to validate it couldn’t. BTW why does it generate so many different area code numbers to send a text to verify. Seems very suspicious?
Basic Setting Not Available 2/5
GroupMe doesn’t allow you to mute direct messages from an individual. All leading messaging platforms have this ability.
Stupid app is so buggy 1/5
So much lag when trying to send a large amount of pictures
It’s great, but... 2/5
I’ve been using GroupMe since high school and into my college years. I love the app and I haven’t had any problems logging in until recently. Sadly I am an Android user( but I own an iPad) and when I send a PIN to my phone to log in, I don’t get a pin. The only thing I would suggest adding/changing is using emails to send PINS. Other than that, the app is amazing. And before anyone asks, yes, I contacted support.
Great but missing a few things 4/5
Wish there was an option to mark messages as important that would save to a personal review later file. Groupme is frequently used for large class chats so helpful links, videos, etc. are sent and then lost in a sea of messages. And ability to pin messages would also be helpful
Liked app early on and now it randomly it will keep showing connecting, try again later, connecting. And messages will get delayed …
New to freshen up site to give it life like Discord
Camp chaperone 5/5

Good keeper up with tool!
I don’t like your app 1/5
By cara sheffler
The app never loads for me and I can never see what people are saying. I get notifications every now and then that people are saying stuff but I can never look at it on the group chat. I play lacrosse and I’m supposed to send a picture of me playing ever day but I am unable to access the actual chat to send picture and comment on stuff. 😤
Do more Microsoft 3/5
By Me MESP
GroupMe is a great app, but Microsoft could do so much more. I love being able to connect with each of my groups and use polls to help us work on projects, but the search feature could be better. More importantly, why isn’t there a scheduled/calendar/ something to help track?? Since MS owns Slack also, why not show GroupMe some of the same love? I would love to se GM pair with Asana or something to help it gain the depth to continue being great rather than get left behind!
By Avatar Nash
It’s annoying that I can’t delete any messages. I don’t want to hide them. I want to delete them. Please fix this already! It’s just wasteful phone space.
