Let me start by saying what I do like about this app. As this is an app I use on an everyday basis for work I do like how I can mute conversations/groups chats. I also enjoy that I’m able to remove or add someone very easily. I love the gif options and the meme option.
What I don’t like and what has me the most frustrated and reason why I can only give this a 2 maybe 3 stars is that it’s almost impossible to know if your message actually went through. I can send a message and it will take a long time to send them when it does I leave the chat come back and my message has a failed to send. This happens all the time. All the time. Sometimes I’ll leave a chat for hours and come back and my message says failed to send. It’s hard to know if it’s actually sent I have stay an extra couple of minutes just to make sure. And yes I’ve checked my network. Oddly enough this app is the only app I’ve had this issue with. If it’s fixed this app would make me delete apps like WhatsApp.
I can no longer send messages from the GroupMe app I have to use the desktop. I’ve tried uninstalling but does work anyways. In the mean time I’m using my computer and an alternate device with a different account.
Overall, this is a decent chatting app with some nice features. But it is highly susceptible to spam.
There is the ability to just talk to "nearby" GroupMe users, even those you don't know. So I've received some inappropriate spam messages that way. If there was an invite feature, where instead of seeing their message and profile pic, it just had the message "X would like to chat with you" and you could accept or decline, that would make this app 10 times better. Of course, for those who want the ability to get messages from anyone, they could turn invites off.
The other thing the app needs is a way to actually delete chats. Yeah, I see the pros of always having the chats and groups if you need them again, but as I said earlier; there is some spam that I would like to delete, not just hide. Because once its hidden, every time the app updates, all those spam chats come right back to the home screen, and I need to spend time dropping them into hiding again.
If these features are added, the current abilites to send messages to people with just text or email make this a fantastic app.
I know you have your hands full already and am super grateful for your hard work! You have developed an amazing app that helped me and hundreds of other business owners grow their business. I won’t bore you with details but just wanted to make a recommendation as to some features that might be worth looking into. There is currently no way to delete a message within a conversation other than to hide it in my device. Also, there is a cap to how many people can be in a group. Myself and many of my business partners and other people in my industry have decided to migrate to telegram due to these features stated above. That’s nearly 50,000 new users on telegram and counting that have migrated from Group Me. I hope this helps, God bless you all!!
I use GroupMe as my main app for getting in contact with classmates and colleagues. I like the sticker and gif integration and the relatively fast delivery of the messages (text and picture/video/gif).
However, this app really needs a big bug fix. So many times I get a notification, I tap it to open the app, and it crashes. Happens more often than it should.
Plus, the app needs a notification badge fix. Whenever I open the message, the number of messages badge on the app icon does not go away for minutes. Sometimes hours. This is confusing as it makes me think I have new messages but I have none.
Otherwise, it is a great app and very easy to use
On all networks I have been on this app does not work. On these same networks, there has been many other people who’s app has worked. When I reached out to customer service I got Mr. Abhishek who proceeded to tell me it was a network issue. Earth to Abhishek, it’s not a network issue. GroupMe works on my account on a computer but this app is too buggy. The God awful customer service and the buggy app really take any cool features of this app out of perspective, because now I can not even use it and there is no help for me to fix my problem. I would rate this 0/5 stars but that is not an option. Abhishek, do your job and serve the customer.
Being able to delete previous messages and pictures you’ve sent is a big feature this app needs(in group chats and direct messages), so that if you sent something to the wrong group chat or person, you could easily remove it and not have to live regretting it. This would help add to the appeal of GroupMe and make users feel more comfortable sending messages and pictures. I know me and a few others I know all agree that change would help inspire us to use the app more. Also, making the customer support email/phone number more visible in the app would help for those who want to make feedback on the app.
I decided to use GroupMe because it’s the only app I could find that allows some members to use their email and others to use their phone number and also if they don’t have a phone, they can check the messages on the computer. So I love the flexibility!!!
That being said, I constantly get an error that I can’t add a current contact to a new group. And now messages pop up in my notifications and then when I go to read it in the app, it’s not there. Also if a contact doesn’t join in a short amount of time then I can’t resend the invite which is a horrible feature. Please fix these bugs!
I love this app I’ve been using it for years, however, I would give it a 5 only if there was an update where you can auto like a message or set up a way to like a message by a certain member in the group that sends it. I have a work group chat where we have to like a message by a certain time and it very convenient if I can just automatically like the message instead of having to go into the app or just like it from my home screen. Thanks guys I hope you guys can roll out this update ASAP!
For what is it works great. Every now and again it will act up tbh. However, it easy to navigate and the features are cool. Using an iOS to switch between emoji and the built in emoji gets annoying sometimes but other than not being able to DELETE a message Vice HIDE it which some other message services allow, group me is not bad. I know a lot of reviews ask about a few delete feature being added. So I would suggest that there be on added.
Our youth group chat was having trouble with everyone being on one group chat cause some had Apple and some a android; because of this app, we have no more problems connecting with everyone. I just want to say we did have some trouble signing in so if you could fix that that would be great. Other than that, love this app. Also, want to say, can you please make this compatible for iPads, this is where our big problem is. JS but this app is great.
