Reviews From google play store

Really easy to set up and use. My only problem is that I occasionally accidentally get added to groups used by people I've never even heard of. If there were a way to confirm that you want to be part of a groupchat before you're added, that would be nice. If there is a way to delete a groupchat, I don't know about it, and so my only option is to hide groupchats I was accidentally added to, which feels insuficient.

Most of the time this app is fine, but sometimes it won't send push notifications for messages I've received, and I missed an entire group meeting because of this. Given that the only functionality of this app is hosting group chats, I find it incredibly frustrating that it has this issue, and that it occurs frequently. This may cost me an entire grade letter in a course that I've worked very hard to get an A in. Wishing my group had used WhatsApp instead.

This is important. For the first few years, this would have been a 4 star rating. However, GroupMe has begun limiting the number of telecommunication companies they will support. This may or may not directly affect you (yet) but it will likely affect someone in your group or team. IF one person can't use it...the app is completely useless. If you are in the early stages of looking for a messaging app for a group, I would strongly encourage you to look elsewhere.

Besides not being able see or get updates often this is a pretty cool app for teams. You get direct messaging without a million ppl having your phone number. I've had problems on and off with the app, but no one else on my team or in my group has, i just completed the updates and it seems to be working fine now. Im currently in 4 different groupme chat with different ppl and organizations.

Used to be great, barely works at all anymore. Continuously shows it's loading, always tells me my messages didn't send but sometimes they do sometimes they don't, on the groups page it shows the new message preview but when opening the group just loads and loads nothing ever happens. Looks like lots of ppl have been experiencing this for months as have I, would be nice to get fixed. Update: getting more stable still stalls out sometimes so but still a great app

There is one good thing about this app, and that is the fact that everyone uses it. That being said, it's so buggy. I try to refresh my groups and it just freezes. If I mute a group, it tells me it's been muted, but the mute button stays, and I can't unmute it. There's one group that just won't give me an unread message count, so I routinely have days worth of messages that I never heard about. Occasionally it'll turn several-month-old messages into unread messages, so I'll have 2,500 unreads

Does not work! Our friends use this app to track weekly meetings, and both my husband and I are not able to job the group. We've tried all the things: text link joining, QR code joining, uninstalling/reinstalling the app, resetting the password, accepting the invitation through a browser rather than the app. Still, no dice. We cannot join the group.

GroupMe helped us blend Android and Apple users. I love that everyone has a name (as opposed to a group text), and when I got a new phone the entire conversation was still there (unlike my text messages). I wish there were more expressions of acknowledgement than just a ❤️, I don't love that Sally broke her foot, ya know, but I don't want to comment on it either...

This app is impressively bad for how many people use it. No matter who I talk to and no matter what device we're on, it won't load. I'll get messages days too late, and most chats just straight up won't load. I messages my RA with a very important question and two days later found out that their messages said sent from their end, but just never got to me. Not to mention my messages only send like 45% of the time. This is incredibly frustrating as a college student as GroupMe is widely used.

Message notifications are delayed by several hours if they show up at all. Can't upload videos after trying multiple times on Wifi and LTE. The app opens up so slowly (in excess of 10 seconds). It seems like every update makes the app worse. Edit: The App startup time is still very slow and makes it very difficult to use. Still can't upload videos. They just fail

Great app for group chats. Was with me through all of college for work and friends. Much simpler than Slack and only requires a phone number (others in your group chat don't even need to download groupme and groupme will still send them messages). Desktop browser version is great too. Occasionally it bugs out and stops sending notifications but that is the only problem.

So buggy. You have to make your screen sideways to post a poll and then it changed some of my settings. You can't edit the poll so you have to end it and repost it with online Groupme all the while spamming the other people with tons of notifications. Also I don't get notifications about 70% of the time and can't delete DMs. If there was a better app I would use it. For now 2 stars for your garbage app.

I don't receive ANY notifications for any of the group chats or DM's. I use this app for work and I keep having to manually check it just so I can try and get hours to work. I'm also missing very important announcements because of it. I keep turning the notifications off and on, even restarting my phone, but nothing works. After researching it, turns out it's not my phone, it's the app itself. Please fix this.

It's a great app for text communication. I noticed that in the last few months it freezes alot & I have to uninstall & then reinstall. Also even though you can hide you chats they are still there. No way in deleting them. Other than that it's great! We have over 100 people using it.

For reference, I have an LG X Venutre Pros: - polls and events embedded in the app - nicknames unique to each group Cons: - chats simply DON'T LOAD NEW MESSAGES. I've missed events because a group just won't update - when messages do load, it will mark a random amount of messages as unread. Someone will send two DMs and a group will send three, and an hour later you'll get "146 new messages" - no edit button for messages - no search for message contents Overall: use WhatsApp or Telegram instead.

This app is ok. My job at McDonald's uses this app, so that the crew and managers can communicate with each other. The app has a really hard time sending pictures. I have to keep resending pictures, and sometimes have to resort to using Facebook messanger to send pictures to my managers. If you could update the uploading features, that'd be fantastic. McDonald's and I greatly appreciate your time and this app.

Don't count on seeing anyone's messages. Don't count on being able to send any. Groups in this app will hang for no reason - you can't see any posted messages or post yourself. This happens repeatedly. No, restarting your phone and/or network settings won't help. Because this is a mobile app you don't get any error messages or steps to take to address the issue. Don't worry it'll fix itself in a week or two. Maybe.

Solid for most groupchats. Sometimes it just won't connect, even if you have connection everywhere else. Not good for sending videos, as there is a 30 second limit and the quality is usually demolished, but photos are fine. A way to add GroupMe events into your calendar with a single click would be nice too.

Used app for over a year with small problems like many noted in several 2019 reviews. Liked using it with my student groups, and they also liked. However, during a recent update, before the one today, it completely deleted all 3 groups I set up, deleted everything. If I can not get back all that I lost, I will delete the app. Very disappointed! Was recommended to me by my students.

I like it a lot overall, it's how our band communicates about some gigs, rehearsals, social events... But for some reason, I don't receive notifications of new messages consistently. I've messed with my phone notification settings and the app settings quite a bit, and can't figure out what I'm missing! Any advice?

Seemed like a good idea to install this app to keep in touch with other members of a group. However, I found a bot in my contacts & no way to delete it, only a way to block it. Also, I kept getting unsolicited messages from a woman who wanted me to look at p***. Not happening. She was not in my contacts, so I could not block her, but I did mute her. I am no longer in this group, but even if I was, this app is not worth the trouble. I recommended Slack to the group leader.

Freezes sometimes. Others in the group also mention the freezing or slugishness of the app. Had thought about moving to another app because of these issues. Other then that its at least a nice option to use. We are heavy users and maybe it just can't handle our demands on the system.

This app is great for keeping my 20 immediate family members in touch with each other. The option to mute the conversation is well like by the male spouses that don't need to be notified for everything. The only drawback is that it doesn't sync to my Samsung watch to let me know when there are new messages. Otherwise, Groupme is awesome!

Non-intuitive and convoluted to set up and resume after wiping my phone for repairs. Cannot access my old account and lost access to all chat groups. Comparing this to wechat for the instances where google messenger isn't good enough, groupme is way inferior, it really stands out as incredibly awkward to use. Extremely frustrating. Avoid, 1-star.

Nice features, I enjoy the transparency compared to other group apps. Hoeever seems buggy for the simplicity. Recently, I have had an issue if my calendar events in a group not appearing. Other members can screen shot them to me to show. Reinstalled, cleared data, reset phone.. nothing.

As with most Microsoft products, it does about half of what it should well. But also like most Microsoft products it has some SERIOUS stupidity built into it. As one example, management of members does not allow for mistakes. If a member is removed (directions must be found on the internet) it is NOT POSSIBLE to EVER put them back. You CAN block and unblock. But I found out too late. If you're like me and make occasional mistakes AVOID THIS APP.

I generally like the app, but a huge gap is the inability to search through a conversation. I use it for a networking group and sometimes need to go back and find info that was shared in the past, but there is no keyword search capability.

Anybody else having problems with notifications? A had it turned off at one point but turned all the notifs back on and then re-logged in, like I was told to when I googled a fix. Now it's completely inconsistent in updates popping up on the screen, sometimes they dont even indicate that there are new messages at all- I have to check it myself and sometimes find messages I was supposed to see hours earlier. Very annoying.

I only use this app for communication with coworkers and boss. It's just the app the company uses. Really wish there was a way to keep people I'm not connected to from sending me links for obvious porn or spam. Didn't see a way to block people either. I'd delete the app if I didn't need it for work.

All is great about the app, but after about a month or two following the download I cease receiving any notifications from groups or dms despite not changing any settings on my phone or app. Not getting notifications kinda defeats the purpose of having the app, otherwise this could be 5 stars.

I use this app as a work group chat. Upon opening it today, after it updated 10 hours ago, my work group has completely disappeared and is inaccessible from the app. On a browser I can access it but not from this app. This app is complete garbage and I regret ever using it in the first place! I've never left a positive review!!

Worked the first time I used it. Installed it again on a new phone and it won't let me use my old profile. And somehow it changed my email login info. Never had that happen before. Thats a big security issue. Support has not responded in 10 days.

I have double checked and verified all my notifications settings for this app are on, but I still sometimes miss messages. I use this app for work and have gotten in trouble before for being late for meetings and responses to my boss because I got no notification of new messages.

Gif selection is horrible and they take forever to load. Also its like 10 clicks to post a Gif. If your group chat is anything like ours the Gif responses need to be timely. I have had to use Google to find the actual, commonly used Gifs that I want to use. Kik is a far superior group chat app.

The app is great. But I think admin should be able to see who individually voted in regards to polls. Especially when it involves many people in one group chat so the admin will know who chose which answer. If you fix this, then I will give 5 stars.

Great app to stay connected with your friends. Real time chatting, get connected on what's going on with everyone and you don't have to message each person directly. Great idea, it works!! Pics, vids, daily updates of activities. Really enjoy it.

Having issues with the app recently. All my groups disappeared a few days ago. Before that one of the groups stopped loading updates even though group members told me they were posting, I couldn't see it. This went on for weeks before my groups all disappeared.

Probably the worst messaging app I have ever used. Randomly deletes my coversations with people all the time, never sends notications unless I'm in the app already (despite all notification settings for both the app and my phone turned on), and consistently prevents me from messaging people directly; clicking the Send Direct Message button just brings the person up with no record of our previous conversations, and a loading bar at the top that loads until eventually crashing the app.

It's fine, I use it to contact friends, it just doesnt load for me sometimes, so I have to delete the app, restart my phone twice, and redownload it for anything to load, which is inconvenient, but other than that its fine.

The app is great. The only faults I find are that you cannot delete messages, message threads, and when you change your picture it only changes for new messages--the old picture will still be beside previous messages. Minor discrepancies.

This app is working pretty well so far, with one exception- direct messages from just one person are not getting notifications and I'm not seeing them until it's too late in some instances. I hope this gets fixed soon!

Very handy for work. I do have an issue with it updating notifications and new post when not connected to WiFi which is very frustrating. It also seems to struggle with larger posts, I keep getting an error.

I use it as a Bible Study and prayer support system- each day women are encouraging each other by posting scriptures, affirmations and personal prayer requests as they face life challenges. My family also uses the app for daily encouragement, scriptural encouragement and scheduling family events. I love this app!

Great way to keep up with inner circles like specific groups of friends and/or family. Can be used to communicate between coworkers, teams and many others. This app does exactly what it advertises and does it in a charmingly simple manner.

Every time I launch it (either after a phone restart or after closing it), it attempts to redirect me to the log in page of Microsoft App Center. I suspect it's a bug, and I'll revise this review if/when it's fixed.

Notifications often don't appear, I get added to groups which are then inaccessible when I open the app, I'm unable to @ random people in any given group, sometimes messages don't get sent on WiFi, when I open the app after updates all my group chats disappear for hours

I use to use this app with a previous employer. Now my new boss wants us to use it. But everytime I try to log on it says an error has occured, I'm not authorized, or brings up pictures from my old job without even letting me log in to try and change it.

I can't even get it to work to begin with. When I try to verify my number, it always says there's some error, or if I have it text me the pin, it will say the pin I entered is wrong when it clearly isn't.

The notifications left plenty to be desired. After troubleshooting my new phone (S10) and reseting alert settings, it now works seamlessly. A suggested improvement: if I can see contact information to ensure I'm messaging or adding the correct individual. Thank you!

A little hard to navigate but mainly I am frustrated trying to post a photo. I have spent over an hour and get an error trying to upload it. I know how to do it but it says it fails. I can't seem to get any technical help either.

Great app, but notifications are so inconsistent. When I don't receive the notification, I have to go in the app a few times everyday just to check for missing notifications when I remember.

After the latest security update on my Verizon moto g6 this app crashes immediately on launch, every time. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling and restarting multiple times with no success. Now it's completely unusable.

Needs more options to mute more than a few hours... Need an option to get one daily notification at preferred time rather than mute a few hours of turn off altogether. Also need a way to stop notifications completely (ie leaving country, etc)

Update: conversations are back. Notifications are a little weird but excited to be able to chat again. All conversations have disappeared. I've tried logging in and out and still nothing.

This app doesn't let me add or remove members from groups, change my avatar/name or that of a group, or directly message people. Additionally, it frequently crashes on me. Not a great app at all in my opinion.

On my old phone (Galaxy note 8) it worked fine beyond minor convenience gripes like an @everyone feature, but since I upgraded to an s10+ I haven't been able to log in and keep getting an unexpected error message.

Signing up for a new account, sign up with Google is totally broken. not a good experience for first time, should be working and tested . Please fix. (Android 9)

It's very easy. It's a lot of us in our group chat and it's great. It starts you off at the very last message you saw so you don't have to go scrolling through looking for it yourself.

A great way to share your moments with your friends. Have not encountered any major defects or annoying little problems. If you're looking for an app that let's you share pictures with a specific group of people, I'd recommend GroupMe.

The app is great. But for some reason I can't enter my group chat. I'll get the notifications, but when I click on them it doesn't show anything.. it's just empty

Works great on IOS, Android, and Windows. Makes communication for group projects much easier! Allows for easy sharing of media such as photos and files as well!

Recently had issues sending and receiving messages...only lasted a week. Never happened before and have used for a couple of years with baseball teams.

Great for group conversations. Only issue is posting to the conversations. Using a Samsung it will deny the post 20% of the time. Resend and then it works. Pics have to be screen shots

Having issues sending any kind of video. I use this for work related stuff and not being able to send video is detrimental to my job. Please fix soon.

Great app for group chats, easily add and remove people right from your contact list easily communicate with multiple people with one message, mute option also available which is great would highly recommend this app for any company to keep in touch with its employees

The app is great itself. It would be much better if there was a search feature in order to go back and revisit topics earlier communicated with my group.

No better way for groups to share photos, thoughts, etc. especially when you all may not be part of the same company. I manage websites and when clients want to share photos easily, they drop them in groupme and I choose what to use.

Poor notification experience and no do not disturb hours. I work with teams in different time zones and I either get all notifications or none. Frustrating but I have to keep using it.

I have enjoyed using GroupMe to communicate with the parents of the football team. I have had the honor of recording the games and linking the video directly to the app for 2 years for both Spring and Fall seasons. Ut has been fantastic sharing videos , emojis and memes.

-cant delete messages -cant delete conversations -cant delete groups -cant unhide messages so they are lost forever -if that hidden message is unable to be sent, you are stuck with a retarded error message, FOREVER -messages unable to be sent are undeleteable, so once again you're stuck with an error message

Glad you can get texts to both SMS and app. Could be more user friendly as it's been hard to figure our some features or been glitchy in the past...don't remember which.

Absolute garbage. This app has a simple job: send and receive messages. Constant errors when sending messages, constant missed notifications for messages. The devs should give up on life

Doesn't load messages, intermittently gives or doesn't give message notifications, sometimes messages are missing, and sometimes I receive multiple notifications for the same messages. Do better GroupMe.

Enjoy the app. Minor bugs keep it from 5 stars: notifications toggle themselves on and off and sometimes it refuses to connect to either wifi or data while other apps and chrome still work. Overall, a good app.

Great app. Wish it marked read messages across multiple devices so you don't have notifications of unread messages when you already looked at them on another device.

I keep trying to refresh the chats and it just freezes. Also I tried to delete the app and reinstall it to see if it fixed the bug and now I can't see anything.

Love this app!! Brillant!! Text and group me was my only way to communicate while traveling in China!! It kept me connected!! Thank you!!

Would like to see a feature to "silence all" indefinitely til further notice. 12 hours at a time is annoying when on a 1 week (or longer) retreat/get away & don't want to be re-silencing the GrpMe app used for work

Really good app to connect in a group setting and it does more than just text. You can private message an individual in the group and also you send invites for group events.

It is great when it works but frustrating when you miss whole conversations because the messages didn't come through for a couple of days.

Not that great of an app. The emojis are not so good. I hate that you cannot search for specific phrases in chats and that you can't delete chats.

Great way to connect with groups and individual friends - it's like texting, but without the need to exchange phone numbers!

Moves slow at times and messages aren't received in real time. Also you can't delete any messages which is weird you can only hide or mute them.

Before the previous update, it was easy to click and drag images to my desktop file. Now I have to download each image to get them into my file for processing them to use as a power point.

It's terrible. Using the app for work. It's been a pain to get into the group chat. If I were trying to create one that would be great, probably even easy. Had troubles with this app in the past. It's terrible.

The app is very buggy. Sometimes I don't get notifications, other times I do, sometimes chats will just disappear entirely.

I can't log in then I try to reset the password and it says there is an error try again. Then I try to make a new account and it says the same thing. Please fix this.

I can communicate with my team members on projects but not everyone was able to receive the messages, they would get them a few days late and thus we had to use texting again

This app worked really well at first, but after a year of using it there have been some intense issues. I have had issues sending and receiving messages in environments where phone operation and wireless signal were perfectly fine. Frequently when I send a message, it doesn't actually send until ~15 minutes later, and crashes while sending. The only reason I still use Groupme is because it works well on computer. Otherwise I would not recommend for sheer instability.

Mine is stuck in portrait mode and nothing I have done fixes it. Tried uninstalling it, delete the cache, restart the phone, re-download and it still is stuck.

This app is much better and easier than using regular SMS to text everyone in a group text. This app makes it simple to connect all kinds of phone platforms easily.

I don't know why but lately I haven't been receiving the notifications from the group chats I'm in and I have to go to the app and check if I missed anything, and I've already updated the app but it still does the same thing. How do I fix this??

Good app. The problem is that, when I logged out, if I try to log back in, it won't let me. It keeps showing me errors.

Every time I launch the app I get redirected to This only started happening since the latest update. Very annoying.

Great app. Been using it for our softball team for about 4 years. Really makes things so much easier.

Still having a lot of lagging issues. It's with mobile data, and wifi. No issues with any other apps.

GroupMe has been very helpful as a group texting app. Our team uses it daily. My only complaint is not being able to schedule texts to go out at a later time.

It allows for group and direct messaging, PDF, Word, Excel attachments. Taking care of business on the go. Say no more.

Great way to stay in touch with a select few folks at a time. Been using it for probably close to a decade to stay in touch with old college buddies.

Microsoft has destroyed this formerly good app. It breaks all the time. They pretty clearly are not investing in it's continued development.
