GroupMe is the best way to chat with everyone you know. It's free, whether you're talking to a group of friends, or texting with one person. Best of all, it works on nearly every phone, with a smartphone app or via SMS. With GroupMe, it's easy to reach anyone, anytime, anywhere.
On GroupMe, you can catch up with your family, get a group together for a night out, coordinate with co-workers, or just gossip with a few of your closest friends. Think about it like your own private Twitter, just for the people you really know. Or like a faster, better reply-all email.
No matter how you think about it, "you won't know how you lived without it once you give it a shot." -Gizmodo
Now a part of the Skype family.
Chat with a group
- Start groups with the people already in your phone's address book… no need to remember usernames or PINs.
- The conversation starts instantly. The app uses your data connection, so even iPod touches and iPads can join in on the fun.
- When you have a poor connection, the app will let you start receiving your messages via SMS instead. You'll never miss a thing!
- Share the group with people you want to join with a simple URL. It's perfect for when you don't have everyone's phone number — or when you're not sure who will want to chat with you.
Get fancy with it
- Share photos inline – take them on-the-go or choose them from your Camera Roll. Check out the Gallery to see all the photos shared in each group.
- Send GroupMe exclusive FREE emoji in your groups and direct messages.
- Attach your location to any message so nobody gets lost.
- Give your group an avatar — choose anything that represents your group.
- Tap the heart next to any message to "like" it and spread some love.
Send a private message
- Take your private conversations outside the group.
- It's just like free texting… send all the messages you want and you'll never pay a cent.
Connect the app just once, and we'll keep you up to date with push notifications. No need to log in every day… it just works.

notification settings are imperfect and not comprehensive.
Very helpful app in communicating to large groups of people, on different platforms. Sometimes the notifications are spotty, but usually it's pretty solid. I like that the admin can add users to the group but won't keep sending messages to anyone if they don't reply. It keeps the app from being annoying. Great app, all in all.
This is a great app for messaging across multiple mobile platforms but I have come across one major issue. I changed my phone number and now the new owner of my old number is getting the messages! Within the app there is no way to change your phone number. Without access to a regular computer it is not possible to change your number for this app! I will probably have to create a new account and lose all my messages and groups.
I liked using it alot.
I wish that when a notification popped up on my lock screen instead of saying GroupMe it said the name of the chat it was from and then the persons name Everything else is great!
Can't download more pictures when I get to the end and it says "load more." I know that there are more pictures we shared in our GroupMe and I cannot view them anymore. Disappointing.
Great app to connect with a group of friends & la familia!! ❤ it...
Great way to communicate with classmate near and far.
Works perfectly for my needs. Its great to be able to turn off notifications for a group. Only thing I would add is for the ability to lock the groupchat so no one else can join and the option to permanently ban someone from the group by majority vote.
I've had nods ya so I switched to SMS settings but now that I have data back group me doesn't send me notifications through the app.
It allows me to talk to all of my friends I want, without crashing up like texting did!
I get no push notifications at all if it wasn't for looking at the numbers on the icons I wouldn't know I have messages
I like this app but I want to get notifications to the lock screen without my phone vibrating or making a sound, it does that way too often with this app and the only option is to turn off all notifications but I don't like that because I'll miss too many messages.
Works just fine for me. Great alternative to iMessage. Give it a try
It's kind of slow, and not that special compared to Whatsapp
a must have
Great communication app for my small groups!
Basic and functional, this app is perfect for guild based games. Nice work!
Used to like this app, but the frequent crashes (since the new OS update?) are driving me nuts.
Useful app, but this current version crashes several times before I can view the chat as I open the app.
It won't even accept my email address!
Warning. This is not a group text app it is a group chat app. All group members will receive all reponses of group members. Used it for a large group and members received up to 130 reponses. Total nightmare.
I have used this app for a while now and used to never give me problems. Ever since the last update, however, my contacts are not getting updated and the only way to add someone to my group is through links phone numbers or emails. Cant just add someone that is already a friend on groupme. Seems like it gets worse each update. Update before last it caused the app to crash a lot. Now i cant add friends! About to find new app!!
The app no longer allows you to receive update through SMS messaging alone. This becomes an issue because you either have to 1) reset it every 48 hours; or 2) make sure that your data plan is turned on or on wifi to receive messages. The app would be great, but because of this has become completely unreliable.
Great app overall. I appreciate the texting features primarily. However, it would be nice to do more things with our group besides text. We find that our group is constantly planning around eachothers schedule. It would be really nice to be able to create a shared schedule with the group.
This is the only app that made it easy for me to contact my friends and family. Easy to use and understand
It's a glitchy, but overall, it's a fantastic app for the 6 guys I ride with to post nonsense our wives don't want to hear, plan rides and brag about the new gear we purchase for our machines. Good fun!
Good app but it frequently freezes so I have to restart my iPad to be able to use it again.
We use this to get information to everyone at my job. It works great to keep everyone informed.
I like this app because it does everything I need it to do. In an emergency, when email is not available, I can still communicate with my team. It has ever failed to do its job.
I unfortunately can't get the app to open anymore without it crashing immediately.
It is constantly force closing on my iPhone 4
App works fine, but significantly drains my battery. It was so bad I had to uninstall.
It just crashes. Not usable.
Love this app because it makes reaching my whole club easier, but I'm struggling to get some people to join, leaving them uninformed of important information. The messages I try to send them to rejoin once they've timed out, don't send, and the link doesn't always link them correctly. Please help! Maybe it has something to do with the stability of large groups? Not sure.
Installed this app as required by my employer but I just had to uninstall it as it continuously polls for messages in the background EVEN with the background app refresh on settings is disabled. Good app but the message polling is crazy of often and you will end up ruining your phone's battery life!
Fantastic app, latest version fixed a lot of the bigs
it lags and crashes / force closes every time I try to open and use this app
It's not a bad messaging system just annoying for instance it takes me like 8 tries just to open the app, I don't get notifications when I should just when it feels like I should and also at times it just randomly closes... At first I thought it was just my iPhone but my friend who is in my group who has a Samsung has the same problems as me, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling still theses issues persist, hope u can fix because its a really cool app.
Should be ios 5.1.1 compatible!!!!!!
Great alternative to texting
Great App, there needs to be an update for the bigs that are causing the continuous crashing of the app and the app force closing
Great concept, but continues to be slow, uses a lot of data, and often unable to login online. Will continue to use this, but considering and testing other group apps in the interim. Doesn't seem to work on wifi, only really works on mobile data network (3G is what I have). Many high percentage of fellow users are having difficulties with GroupMe. Tech support very cordial and responsive, but no working solution arrived at.
Isn't working at all. Doesn't load, doesn't bring up my account, I couldn't even change my picture.
Recently my place of employment decided this was better to use than a fb group for messages about shifts, shows, events, etc. Quite frankly, this app doesn't cut it. Once you get a message, if you miss it, it doesn't care. It doesn't annoy you relentlessly the way, say, a fb anything would. With big red alerts and numbers in red on your screen until you read whatever it was. This should be like that. It doesn't do that. I've missed some important correspondence do to this app's gentle approach to reminding it's users something has been posted. Get it together y'all.
Very fast and keeps you notified with those you talk to.
Good app. Love the ability to communicate with my groups. BUT, the app itself crashes almost every time I click it when I hadn't been on it in maybe an hour. I'll have to try 2-5 times before it opens. Even when it does open, it takes a LONG 15-20 seconds before any text shows up. It didn't used to be this hard to use the app.
I can't even open this app :( I tap it on the menu to launch the app and then it shows the white blank screen with the tabs and stuff of the app. It stays like that for like 10 seconds and then finally crashes. I have to keep repeating this like 15 to 20 times until it finally does open up. Honestly, it's not worth dealing with this. You'd be better off finding some other instant messaging apps instead.
Awesome app, but give an option for the creator to choose whether or not the members of the group can add/remove people from the group. It would be much appreciated!
The app's interface is a lot more convenient than a traditional group text. However, it crashes (sometimes wont even start, taking five or more openings to do so) frequently on my 3GS. Also, there is no way to edit existing contacts within the app, other than deleting them from the conversation and adding a new edited contact.
I love this app, but I can't even open the app since I updated it. It crashes every time! Please fix this.
Haven't been able to use it for over a week due to constant crashes, and when it does work it runs slow as sin on my iPhone 4 (ios7). Other than those glaring faults, it's a very useful app in coordinating with groups from school or work.
One of the best apps out there right now.
I really like the way this app has been set up. It follows very well and easy to navigate. The biggest problem with it is that it crashes all the time! Hopefully this will be fixed.
I would like to have the ability to see the number of messages I've missed in the groups I have muted.
It's annoying that you can't delete a photo or text from a group conversation. Still waiting for this function
The app crashes EVERY time I open it! Its slow, and sometimes messages don't show up in the app, but i get a notification saying a message has come through. TERRIBLE APP!!!
What a great app!
Great functionality and useability! Keeps you connected to your groups, and has good integration with the iPhone!
I love this app so much. I use it for all of my nursing group projects. Never had a problem
Ok, good app. However, I had ok internet, but the messages wouldn't send. So now they're stuck there asking me if I want to resend. Along with that I can't delete any messages without deleting the whole conversation.
I am trying to sign up with Facebook and it's not even allowing me to click the email address part. Poor programming from a fellow computer scientist....
When I first downloaded GroupMe, it only crashed every other time I opened it. As if this wasn't bad enough, for the last week the app will not even open at all and just crashes when you even try. This version is completely broken and needs an update immediately
I really wish they'd sort out the stability of this app. It crashes a lot. It has other bugs too. The app is useful when it's not crashing though.
Just love it!!!
This is a great app my friends and I use it for game play with a lot of other apps to coordinate a game plan for our battle weekends one feature we'd love to see added is the option to either block someone from rejoining the group/s or have an option for the creator so he/she could lock the group so no one can rejoin unless the group is unlocked
I use this app to talk amongst my peers who work in sales. It works ok but I wish it wasn't so buggy when I tried to copy and past text. Also, where is the option to edit your post? An absolute must in my opinion.
Tried everything. Reinstalling, unmuted, tried switching to SMS text, tried every option. I don't get any notification on new msgs
I can't get into my group me. Every time I try to open it, it opens then closes before I can even look at the messages
Great and Awesome
Totally helpful for keeping teammates, friends, and family in the loop for parties, gatherings, holidays or last minute plans. Love the fact that everyone can chip in on the cost in one easy place even from miles away. Just one concern is that the app in not always open when you first click on it, I noticed it to be more of a problem after the update was installed and have read thru other reviews and many others feel the same. Frustrating that it takes clicking on the app multiple times before it responds. Thanks for your concern in this matter.
Helpful tool for game chatting but has a few hiccups. The biggest one being that if you haven't been on in a few it has a problem loading up. Or if there is more than 100 messages the app will close multiple times before it figures out what it's doing. Besides that I like the picture ability.
Doesn't let you delete individual messages you sent.
The app crashes nearly every time I try to open it on my iPod Touch. Practically useless.
See I love the idea of the app, but it just simply crashes too much! Fix it please. My ipod 4th gen can't handle this.
Erased all if my contacts when I downloaded it so I didn't get a chance to use it. Thanks a lot..
I think this app is great and I've been using it since it's first started an the changes it's made since then are remarkable. However, I feel there are some places the developer can improve on. First off, the app frequently crashes upon opening and takes a few minutes to actually open up. Secondly, the app gives the ability for users to kick out other group members on this own, however the administrator(creator) of the group cannot be touched. The developers should consider changing this feature to allow all members to be removed or make it so that no members can be removed unless on their own will. A follow up feature that the developers may want to consider are making it so that the group does not need to be disbanded when the creator leaves. These are the only major downs I have with this app. There are some additions however that I think will be well applauded by users and rather that will gain the app popularity. For example, the addition of a poll and the ability for any group member to poll a question for the rest of the group. Another good feature that would tie into your connections with Skype would be live video chats. These are just some things to look into for the future. Overall though, I think this is a great app and I look forward to the progress it'll make in the future.
Keeps crashing when you try to open it. App opens too slow.
I am being harassed constantly and it feels like there is nothing I can do about it.
This app has never opened for me once. My friends tell me to keep trying and that it’s buggy sometimes. Why would I want to use an app that’s broken in the first place
I like this app, but it would be really nice if it could open the first time I touch the icon instead of immediately crashing ten times before it finally opens.
I've been playing this game for over 2 years now. There are program and code issues here and there but overall, I enjoy my time with my fellow players and I play several times a day.
It's crashes every time I try to open it. Fix it
Because of this our National Company texting is so much fun. Our synergy is stronger since we started using Group me. GREAT APP!!!
This has been a great app...until the last update. It does not work when wifi is turned on, it doesn't send notifications even though that option is turned on, and it won't allow me to upload pics. Everyone on my network is having issues. Please address and fix ASAP!!!
Everytime I open the app it's crashes about 3 times then it opens
You can't have constant SMS messaging once you download the app and create an account. So if you want to receive text messages, DO NOT download this app.
But it crashes a lot whenever I try to open it. It does it about three times before it actually opens up without crashing. Other than that, I love it. Great way to communicate with everyone at once
with the new video and pic feature this app is absolutely awesome!!!
Will change to 5 stars once the battery drain from the newest update gets fixed. Significant increase in battery drain when groupme is running. Other than that, app is great for our work related chats.
I cannot send or receive direct messages from several people. After countless back-and-forth emails to customer service I still cannot but he told that I can.
It kicks me out like 5 times before it actually allows me to use it! I like this app, but it's really annoying how I have to keep opening it until it lets me use it -_-
I really appreciate this app. I'm a business owner and this app helps me to connect with my clients and staff much better.
It never opens! I literally just spent 15 min trying to open the app to read my messages
Every time I try to open up the app it crashes. new update please.
My friends and I use this app to stay in touch!!! Very good app!!!
