GroupMe is a communication app that is owned by Microsoft dedicated to group messaging. The core function of the app is to provide a simple yet useful group messaging system. It comes with an overwhelming number of great features that you would likely expect in the most messaging app. Users can create an active group with up to 500 members. To top it all, you can also elevate and turn each conversation more engaging by sending various forms of multimedia like photos, videos, locations, and emojis. GroupMe is definitely a great platform to stay in touch with the people who matter most. Especially now that we are in the midst of a global pandemic, a communication app like GroupMe will help us stay connected all the time.

GroupMeHow GroupMe Works?

Much like most messaging apps, GroupMe works the same way. It comes with a very simple interface that users can easily navigate and explore. The app offers everything in one place that allows you to share important moments and re-live them anytime. Simply download the app either from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to get started. The first thing you need to do is to create an account with GroupMe by providing your name, cellphone number, and a password or better yet connect using either your Facebook or Twitter account.

Once done, the app will now prompt you to your home screen. As what the title of this app connotes, the first thing you can do is create a group and add members into it. The service then syncs with your contacts and from that point forward the user can make groups, limited to 500 members. Each group is given a label and assigned a unique number. Those who do not wish to use the app can still send and receive GroupMe messages through SMS. Interestingly, the app also allows users to easily attach and send pictures, documents, videos, and web-links as well.


Group Chats– Start chatting and add anyone to a group via their phone number or email address. Those who do not wish to use the app can still send and receive GroupMe messages through SMS.

Manage Notifications– Manage your notifications. An individual who is part of an active group has the ability to turn off notifications for the app; users will still receive the message, but will not be notified about it.

Share Moments and Relive them Anytime– Share your important moments to everyone anytime and anywhere. The gallery saves your memories. Easily explore the photos and videos shared in your group now, or later.

The Entire Internet in your Group– Make your conversation more engaging by bringing the entire Internet in your group. Meme images, search and send GIFs, and see content shared from URLs displayed in the chat.
