Ratings and Reviews
Great app! Missing ONE thing 🤞
I LOVE GroupMe. I use it for groups at school, at work, and for one-on-one conversations as well. All around, it’s great. It has a clean user interface, it’s fast, in real time. I love being able to add gifs, polls, videos, pictures, etc to our chats. My only irks as far as videos and pictures go is the quality is LOW. I recommend taking videos or picture outside of the app on your normal camera and uploading, versus using the in app GroupMe camera. I’ve also found that pictures uploaded still lose quality, so if there’s any small text then zooming in on it is just not worth it since it will end up blurry. Outside of that, I have no complaints for the media, etc.
The ONLY thing I wish this app would offer is PINNED messages. I run multiple chats for work, and being able to pin/star/etc important messages for everyone to access and refer back to would be AMAZING. I think this would be a great feature to offer to admins of groups. You can search most popular messages, but this is not always useful if the messages that need to be seen by new members, etc, are too far back in the chat to be relevant in the popular messages anymore. If this feature was added, GroupMe would take the cake for, in my opinion, the best group messaging app.
Outside of this, the app is great, it does what it’s supposed to, and it’s reliable!

Great App, but could be even better
This is a great app that I use every single day for a bunch of different group messages, but I feel like there are a few ways it could be improved to make it even more useful/ easier to use:
Being able to view a picture from a notification without having to go into the app. It is very annoying to have to pull out my phone and go into the app to see the picture especially when I have an Apple Watch.
It would be great to have an Apple Watch app to accommodate the iOS app. Along with being able to view a picture right from the notification this would be extremely useful with the new Apple Watch with cellular connectivity. Imagine if you are out going for a walk or run with just your Apple Watch Series 3 and someone sends you a picture. With the current system you would have to wait until you got home to view the picture. Another nice feature for the Apple Watch app would be the ability to see past messages instead of just the ones from notifications that go away when you tap on them. This would be just like how the messages app works on my Apple Watch.
Great idea, bad execution
I’ve been using group me for several years now, and it’s honestly been more annoying than helpful as the years go on. I am aware that these are pretty minor things, but it’s the little stuff that makes the whole experience way smoother.
First off, you can’t delete any groups once they’ve gone past their usefulness (ie. the event it was created for has happened). As someone who can’t stand clutter because it makes it hard to find what I need, that’s really irritating. The old group chat just sits there, uselessly, and very much in the way.
Second, if you get a notification for a group me message and click on it to read the message (cause it’s faster and that’s what everyone does), then the notification badge never goes away until you get another message, go to the home screen, and click on the app itself.
Thirdly, adding people is a hassle because you can’t tell what will add them to the group. Sometimes it’s an email, sometimes it’s a phone number, sometimes I wanna tear something apart because of how frustrating it can get.
Again, I know these are really small things, but honestly making the app even just a bit more user friendly will go a long way. I really don’t enjoy feeling like I have told hold a seance and commune with the group me ghosts just so I can figure out how to work the app.
