Muting without going into the app
Pilotsmallz on 5/22/2018
On Facebook messenger you have the ability to mute for an hour from the notification itself. Normally I would use Facebook messenger but for some reason people prefer this app. Could there be an easier way to mute the app without going into the app itself? And perhaps have it in 1 hour/ 5 hour intervals? Also, messenger no longer vibrates with each message after a number of consecutive messages, this is something I would love to have on this app because I can’t tell you how much I love feeling my phone vibrate over and over and over for 30 minutes, wasting my battery. These are all features that can be resolved by going into the app, but messenger makes the process so much easier and I think GroupMe can apply similar techniques.
Sent invite to contacts without warning
Marigumi on 5/22/2018
The app did not warn me that creating a group would automatically invite everyone in the group to download GroupMe. I mistakenly thought that this app could send mass sms messages, but all it does is create a group chat within the GroupMe app. So I sent a bunch of people invites to GroupMe without realizing that’s what I was doing, and in the end the app couldn’t even do what I wanted it to do.
Ew disgusting
Sups tee on 5/22/2018
I was trying to send a gif to my group and a pornographic image was sent please fix this
Awesome App
Indiana Tony on 5/22/2018
Let’s my family and friends chat in chat room setting but fix the gifs! They only work for like 30 seconds and then just turn into a still image
MP3 format please??
INCalive on 5/22/2018
Why come mp3s are an unsupported file for groupme but a wav file isn’t?? Can group me support mp3 files please!!
Fix this crap
Zeeky PPP on 5/22/2018
Every time I try and post a GIF from my phone’s camera roll, my app crashes and pauses and I can’t use it. How is it that every time a new update comes, a problem I’ve never had before suddenly comes up? Like c’mon man
Was 5 star...
Laydee_ambedee on 5/22/2018
New update doesn’t work! It won’t allow me upload videos anymore. What happened?

This app has helped us with being informed. We can send a prayer request or just connect for other reasons.
Can't Upload Media
Shfidkvdbdn on 5/22/2018
Recently this app has started to not allow me to upload media such as pictures, videos, or even ask in-app polls or create events. All these are accomplished when you tap the "+". When I do that, the app freezes. I can't do anything unless I hit my home button and then close the app. I can still send and like messages, but that's all I can do in this app for now :(
Keeps locking up
Joysan on 5/21/2018
I've used groupme for 7 years now. Its been relatively stable most of that time until this past week, It's been booting me out & now it won't let me post pics. I checked all the settings. Deleted & reinstalled. Still screwed up. HELP! Does Groupme have a support team? Still no fix or answer to my complaint & it's been almost a month.
Jmosiman on 5/21/2018
I enjoy this app but it would be nice to include an @everyone feature. Sometimes my group needs to tell everyone something and tagging everyone in the group individually is a pain. Would be nice if there was a way to tag all people.
ZenAvi96 on 5/21/2018
I like it.
Can’t send gifs
Chrisseytina on 5/21/2018
I send gifs all the time. I have an iPhone X. But ever since about 2 Groupme updates ago, I can no longer send gifs in groupme to non-iPhones. Androids just get my gifs in Groupme as a still picture.
Phone number
Gabriella.xox on 5/21/2018
i have my log in but why can’t i change my phone number ? i have a new phone so how am i supposed to get into my account ?
Bugs galore
chocolaterox00 on 5/20/2018
I can’t even make an account because the app won’t let me input an email in the “email” section (when signing up through facebook). i’ve tried everything from quitting the app to resetting my phone but this bug won’t go away :(
colorguard emoji
Hatghdojeb on 5/20/2018
love it but i need a colorguard emoji 🙄 all u have is band and cheerleaders
deadlift92 on 5/20/2018
Can’t give this app a solid rating because I can’t even create an account. I get through the steps until it tries to verify my number. “Send this text to phone number: (**********).” Not a valid GroupMe command. No matter how I enter my number. Why would it be this difficult to create an account? I shouldn’t have to google how to create a GroupMe account....
Latest update
Sculdesign on 5/20/2018
Your last update has locked me out of my account. First I couldn’t see any of the groups I am a part of (but still was receiving notifications), so I attempted to logout and back in. Had to reset my PW, and now I am no longer able to access my account at all. Way to ruin a decent app.
Great for managing my soccer team
Batman9879 on 5/20/2018
The calendar is great for seeing who can make games. Communication is simple. The only thing I wish I could do is see who responded to polls I put up. It would also be nice if a payment option was available.
Can't save vids on my phone anymore

I will be uninstalling.
Crashes every time when attaching pics
grandeskimlatte on 5/19/2018
I have used GroupMe for some time now and found it ok but not great, but lately - after latest update I suppose - it has started freezing every single time when clicking the "+" to attach photos. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. WhatsApp is so much better. It lets you attach pictures whenever you like, even if you've already started the text. In GroupMe you have to attach the picture before you type, otherwise the "+" symbol disappears. Quite aside from the fact that it no longer works at all for me.
Shakes2122 on 5/19/2018
I used GM for my business and attach pics and images all day long. Your update today that supposedly fixed a "glitch" not has prevented me from doing it. And it now crashes all the time. THANKS for the update. It really improved things. :((((((
Rainbow Cookieees on 5/19/2018
Could be better Add options for Delete, a messages chat history etc Also add free stickers Thanks by GroupMe User

Great App, Minor Troubles
✨🌼Annie🌼✨ on 5/18/2018
Overall, GroupMe is a great social app that is useful for work or for fun! However (and this may be a glitch with my phone), I am having trouble downloading videos from my chats now. Pictures will download fine, but the videos won’t work at all for me. Other than that, great work!!
Great app
Nccu74 on 5/18/2018
Great app let you communicate with many in a short period of time IJM
This is bugging me!!
i❤️😂 on 5/18/2018
There is a bug where whenever I search for a group icon, it says “could not load. Tap to retry.” I have tried tapping, deleting the app, changing WiFi, everything! Please fix!
Keep building!
Tidalroll on 5/18/2018
Needs landscape for iPad. Needs Apple Watch. Please build it to work with all Apple devices.
Trying to send a gif freezes groupme
EskobarSanchez on 5/18/2018
Group me freezes whenever a gif is trying to be sent. IPhone 8 latest firmware, tried uninstalling/reinstalling app. Checked all permissions and even reset the app. Multiple friends have the same issues on different networks, some have had no issue. Been going on for about 2 weeks, really hope a fix would be in by now.
New update causing issues!
Bigp011 on 5/18/2018
Been an avid Groupme user/ supporter for years but this new update doesn’t allow me to post gifs! I have a 7 plus and my can post just fine with her 7. Please I hope this is fixed. I am a constant user and it is irritating for my app to keep freezing every time I try to post a gif. I can post pictures just fine.
TRforShort on 5/18/2018
Why do gifs not stay animated? It plays a couple of times then stops forever. I updated the app today but it is still happening.
Add photo crashes app on iPhone
Jeffmo11 on 5/18/2018
Since last update every time I try to share a photo the app crashes
Good overall, needs search function
NDH573 on 5/18/2018
I enjoy general usage of this app, but it definitely needs a search function to locate earlier messages within a group.
Slow population
Not Useful0303050507 on 5/18/2018
Everything loads slow no matter great signal or WiFi, sometimes you won’t even know you’ve received a message/messages. It doesn’t allow you to change your profile photo easily or will keep saying error. Sometimes the group chat you’re in will disappear or will show in the message column elsewhere instead of at the top of the list when sending and receiving most recent messages. Major bugs, super annoying.
Great app that could use a little improvement
movielover14 on 5/18/2018
It's a great app that allows me to stay connected with different clubs/groups I'm in at school. The reason it only receives four stars from me is because you can't delete conversations. You can hide messages and chats but if you're a person who worries about storage/space (like me) you want to delete DMs. I wish this was an option available.
5/18/18 new problems
Dummbutt on 5/18/2018
Editing my 4 year old review for a new problem. Photo library is dead. Gets stuck every time I open it and I have to force close the app. Even trying to add photos or videos from my library causes a crash.
Great but...
Blahnlsh on 5/17/2018
I use GroupMe for everything. It has not been a problem, UNTIL someone else in my family tried to get a GroupMe account. Her app only opens mine, and even when she registers with one it just changes mine. This is not okay, as my group chats are always lighting up (and she does not want to read/ receive notifications of my groups). They're not relevant to her, so the notifications will be a nuisance. I can't fix this here, please fix this so she can have her own account. This is even after I changed the email to my account to be sure they didn't overlap.
Yebra23 on 5/17/2018
It would be great if we can make gifs as our Avatar. More customization on our profiles. App works fine and have no problem with it.
steeveveeeveeveen on 5/17/2018
I didn't want to write a review, i was using this app and it asked me to rate the app, which disrupted me using the app, so i rated it 1 star. Leave me alone im already using your app.
No Pettiness (👎🏾)
pleasegetpettygroupme on 5/17/2018
Groupme is great, but we definitely need a feature that you cannot see anyone’s texts that you block. If I block someone, I don’t want to be able to see what they’re typing or whatever in the groupme. Please hop on the pettiness wave like all the other apps ☺️

So grateful for this app- we were able to share this memorable experience with our children.
Terrible fluidity, outrageous image compression, slow interface
npepka13 on 5/17/2018
Not sure why this app has such high ratings. I wait forever for the app and chats to load very often. Images are drastically reduced in quality when sent in chats and there is no setting to adjust the image size to be sent. Videos are limited to 30 s in length and again the quality is reduced extremely. There are also many bugs and lags when the phone switches from WiFi to cellular data or in and out of service. Much room for improvement.
So far, so good.
joyZgirl on 5/16/2018
Someone from my bible group told us about this app. It’s been a fabulous way to stay connected and share stuff privately.
Swc36 on 5/16/2018
Love this app for keeping in touch and up to date with teams. However, I feel like we need more reaction options. A “heart” isn’t enough. Sometimes I need a good “ha ha” or “thumbs down.”
Update glitch
justineholm on 5/16/2018
The app just updated on my phone and deleted all of my chats. I still get notifications, but I can’t look at them.
I love the app, but...
Hkhdfnkgvbjhvvjjgvbbhh on 5/16/2018
The latest update has caused the app to crash whenever i open the menu to send a picture or video to a group. This has made me very sad because it was working perfectly before but now I can't send pictures to my groups. If there's any way to fix this someone please let me know.

GroupMe is an awesome way to stay in touch and have group conversations and motivate each other. I absolutely love it!
Kicking me out
sarah1253 on 5/16/2018
It keeps kicking me out if I don’t respond to messages which I don’t need to that often as it’s just a way to see games and cancellations.
New update causes crashes
Eveey 36987 on 5/15/2018
I love using this app and haven't had any problems with it. I use it on a daily basis and it gets the job done, group chatting with my friends. However, the recent update crashes when I try to access my pictures or send images through the app. It's inconvenient and troublesome to have to deal with the constant crashing. It's ok to send the images from the album instead but this wasn't a problem before. Aside from that, the app is great. That's the only problem as of yet.
What happened to gifs?
nomi_yomi on 5/15/2018
Both my phone and the app are updated, but I cannot send gifs. It'll either send them as stills or the app will just plain shut down when I hit send. This has been going on for a while now, I hope it can be fixed soon.
