Great group chat

Much better then line!
Not in the app
Brain832001 on 7/19/2018
I have the app downloaded but if I’m added to a new group, it will be text only. Please fix this issue. It has been happening for a while now..... App is completely up to date so there’s no reason why this should be happening.....STILL HAPPENING 7/18/18
Freezing
Prophetess-1 on 7/19/2018
Downloaded the App signed in an unable to stop from freezing while syncing my contacts Ridiculous!!! Patricia
Rotation issue on ipad
Just 1 problem on 7/19/2018
Finally!! After over a year of complaining they finally fixed the rotation issue for ipad! Such a minor thing made the app super annoying to open. I will give 4 stars simply for the fact it took so long to fix something so minor. I get that 'IT hours' are precious but still... You say feedback is precious to you yet you took forever to listen to it.
Keeping Touch
AIGLAW on 7/18/2018
Group Me is perfect for families who want to avoid Facebook and otherwise keep it real
Very Good but One Nit
NCSUCPE93 on 7/18/2018
This is a very good app for group text/notifications. I wish I could chose any alert tone/ringtone for alerts (by group would be nice). Other than that, it seems to work great.
Emotions
steviespauld on 7/18/2018
Do something else besides a heart for liking a message. Give boos or other types of emotions like Facebook or even iMessage now days. A lot of catch up needed
Voice Notes/Memos
biscuit 83 on 7/18/2018
You all have come a long way in developing this app. It would be great if you all could allow voice notes to be recorded in the app AND sent from the phone to the app. ☺️
My Thoughts

You should also add a dislike button in addition to the like button.
Spam issues
Quick helper app on 7/18/2018
Great app for messaging groups but, hate that you can’t delete spam messages from friends without having to hide the friend completely... Wish there was a fix to that.
Safety
grace lives on 7/18/2018
Love this site! Easy way to contact with friends in a safe app.
Feature request
stephen.moore on 7/18/2018
I enjoy the feature to have custom nicknames for individual chats, I would like the ability to add signatures! Add a signature to your standard message, or have a specific signature for a specific group!
Malfunction
OptimACE Pr1me on 7/18/2018
Sometimes I have to uninstall and reinstall the app in order to start a conversation. Sometimes it will not show my contacts.
Video chat
XxMTHxX on 7/18/2018
You should make an option to video chat in a group chat.Preferably with good audio playback,and hopefully good visual quality.
Great
Anonymous Boarder on 7/17/2018
Works well for my Bible study group.
It doesn’t have vibrate only
Hb1516 on 7/17/2018
It’s a great app until I found out the android version has a vibrate only switch and the iOS version doesn’t. Could y’all please add this. Thank you
Huh
virgo_veggies on 7/17/2018
Would be nice to delete either text messages or photos.
Why do you keep messages forever?
omihek on 7/17/2018
I like using GroupMe. It’s good at what it does. It’s sort of annoying that some of my friends and family have chosen to use GroupMe exclusively even though there’s a perfectly good messaging platform on all phones called texting, but I guess whatever floats their boat. I have one major issue that is pushing me towards deleting GroupMe forever. It’s the fact that GroupMe saves all the messages forever. Why do you need to do that, GroupMe? Why do you need to save my private conversations on your services forever? I can’t even delete them from my own account history. I just don’t understand it. With the new privacy and information laws just activated in the EU, you at least have to allow them to be able to delete any data you are storing on them, so why not just give that feature to all your users? I have tons of message threads and groups in my archives simply because I didn’t even start the conversation and I don’t normally talk to those people but they messaged me once upon a time about one thing and now I am forced to have those few words in my history FOREVER. Do you realize that in 50 years I will still have those messages taking up space and distracting me unless you let us actually delete (as opposed to “hide”, which hides things maybe for a day or two until I log in on another device or GroupMe randomly refreshes and brings all hidden messages and archived private conversations back). Another dumb thing about this whole thing is that if I archive a conversation to get it out of my face, if the person ever messages me again, it disappears into the archives and I never get the new message. Argh! So frustrating. And it all revolves around your unexplainable desire to save everything forever. I’m wondering what you are planning to do with those messages in 50 years. Like why do you need to save everything forever? It’s just so confusing to me. I should be able to completely delete a private conversation if I want to. And then if the person wants to message me again, it creates a totally new conversation that I can also delete at my leisure. In addition to letting us have control over our own private messages, it would be nice to have an automatic hiding or archiving feature for conversations or groups that haven’t had a new message in a while. Like if a convo goes a whole month with no updates, just stick it in the archive. If it gets a new message, automatically remove it from the archive and stick it back in the list of conversations and groups. Also, sort of unrelated, but I think admins should have the power to delete messages in a conversation thread. Sometimes people post things in the wrong group, sometimes people post inappropriate or unrelated things and the choice is either delete the whole group and start a new one from scratch or just leave it there and hope no one ever scrolls back up to find it, sometimes you just want to clear old messages out of the convo, or messages from a person who ended up leaving the group or getting banned. And when they delete the message (or picture, or poll, or event, etc., it should delete it for everyone, not just the device that deleted it. Basically it should delete it from the conversation, not just the persons device.
Mannnnnnnnnnn
My Name Moe on 7/17/2018
Great app. Only thing missing is replying to a message in a group chat. People can get confused when they don't know what exactly you're replying to. What's app has this feature, if you don't understand what I mean. It allows you to directly respond to that message. Very beneficial in large party chats
Thank you for fixing the iPad orientation
Nosaj544 on 7/16/2018
Thank you for fixing the iPad orientation
Polls
Gwcenter26 on 7/16/2018
An idea for the polls are to make a public/private option so that the public one you can see who voted what and in the private one just how many votes how it currently is.
Great group text app
joeymadera on 7/16/2018
Been using group me for years but would love a search feature in the groups but not one you have to scroll up for. It would be better if it was part of a menu.
They fixed it!
anonymous #q on 7/16/2018
I love this app. All my friends at camp use it to communicate and it’s the only way I can talk to them when I am not at camp. The one problem that was just kind of annoying me was that when I opened the app on my iPad it would always open in portrait style no matter how I had my iPad oriented. They have finally fixed this and I see no problem with the app otherwise.
Needs Update
tsnt on 7/16/2018
Keeps Crashinf
So annoyed
reviewwwwriterrr on 7/16/2018
I’ve been trying since 10 am (it is now 2pm) to change my phone number for group me! I’ve sent several emails and haven’t gotten any response! Why don’t you have a number we can call when we’re having trouble with something? The situation is too complicated to explain via email. I need to talk to a person over the phone! I love the app, I just am very annoyed with the customer service!
Account issues
Ecreman1 on 7/16/2018
I cannot create my account through Facebook because it won’t let me put in my Email address
Communication
Nam-myoho-renge-kyo on 7/16/2018
I really like the advantage of having Groupme it allows me to communicate with many of my friends about various topics. Great!!!!
Great app for groups
Kim in Tex on 7/16/2018
Several of my group texts have moved over to GroupMe. Now that I am used to checking the app, I find it much easier than long text strings. One suggestion for improvement: it would be so helpful to make threads searchable. Sometimes my friends have a lot to say and I have a hard time finding info from a few days ago, not to mention last month!
Multiple Accounts
Yellobabes on 7/16/2018
App is easy to navigate and helpful for staying up-to-date with current info for work, but I would like to be able to sign-in to two different accounts... I use the app for two separate jobs and can only be signed in one account at a time... This puts me in somewhat of a bind... if there could be a way to have multiple accounts on here that’d be a great bonus...
Very small improvement over SMS messaging
Otter3564 on 7/15/2018
It organizes your group chats a little better than SMS messaging, but there are FAR better tools on the market right now. Unless a group is being stubborn and doesn’t want to use a better tool I wouldn’t recommend.
Fix Please
3volley on 7/15/2018
I keep my contacts by families. If I want to add the wife AND the husband I have to have them in separate contacts. I don't want them in separate - I want them organized by family. (Never got an answer) Also - I would like to go back to an event that ended and be able to see it or update it (who won the match, how the event went, etc)
Great app!
curtinkatie on 7/15/2018
GroupMe is a great app and incredibly useful when I want to keep in touch with folks with many different types of phones. The one thing I wish the app allowed for was creating groups of conversations (I.e.: "work", "school", "friends") to keep everything in one place. I have so many group and individual chats going at once and it's difficult to keep up without a way of separating them.
Annoyed
CartierBihh on 7/15/2018
All of my GroupMe messages are being forwarded to my real phone messages and that hinders me from seeing pictures. I’ve re-downloaded and reset this app a million times and the messages are still being sent to my phone instead of on the app. At this point, I no longer want to even use this app but I have to due to my job uses it to keep in touch with the workers.
Family Vacation
redbandit1 on 7/15/2018
The app worked really great on the road and while were real on vacation to keep close to 30 people all in tune with each other as to what all was doing during the day.
👍🏼👍🏼 for GroupMe
jb32475 on 7/15/2018
I have been using text to reach out to my staff in group messages for years. With 50+ employees, some have iPhones and others droids, and of course all different cellular providers. I could only send out a group text to 20 people at a time so we had so many different chats going, it got very confusing at times. GroupMe has made it so much easier and more efficient, streamlining my efforts.
An excellent idea
luxa458 on 7/14/2018
I love your app but I think it would be great if we could have a dislike button for messages as well as the heart. It may sound rude but I literally just want to be sarcastic with my friends
Great App, Very Convenient
Larie Seras on 7/14/2018
I use this app for school (all of my classmates are in it) in order to chat about assignments, exchange info, set up study session, etc. Easy to navigate, great functionality.
Recall messages
shdjr. r on 7/14/2018
For GroupMe to be more competitive, I think a recall option should be incorporating into this app. Recall /unsend messages, pictures, and memes is necessary.
No silent tone
wudbfbeis on 7/14/2018
Cant have the app without sound notifications unless you do mute. Then you don’t know if anyone is talking unless you open chat.
Claire Goodyear
Ggoody142729472719 on 7/14/2018
I love this app because it is so easy to use and a lot of people can be in One chat while you don’t even have to get the app to be in a conversation. The only thing I would request, is that you also add a dislike button on the side next to the heart, so you wouldn’t have to respond that you don’t like it. Otherwise I love it.
Like the app but......
Jack'sGirl on 7/14/2018
Like the app, but it used to work on my watch, now it doesn’t. Want to access it from my watch.
Great
DJLEVERT on 7/13/2018
Just great
Unable to use any longer
reneetu on 7/13/2018
1) Whatever updates have transpired I am no longer able to add users to groups. They just don’t show up for me to add like they used to. Did a synch on contacts with groupme seems like it made it worse. I have to ask others members to add them now. Frustrating. Kinda giving up. 2) Also frustrating groupme randomly pops up all single person groups making a big mess with multiple singles groupmes that I don’t want displayed. So I then have to go individually HIDE CHAT. 3) But then that option HIDE CHAT is not available for every groupme so then. I’m stuck with all of these groupmes displayed on phone. Cludgy.. 3) would be nice for individual person groupmes to not just randomly pop up (all of them) I know this is a free app and it is nice but just wanted to input what’s making it unusable now.
great app just needs a few more options!
Kmarielove on 7/13/2018
I love this app, they make sure to fix bugs in a timely manner. I only wish i could pause notifications for longer than 24 hours. My weeklong vacation consisted of me getting reminded of work once a day then turned the notifications back to “pause” for 24 hours. More options for pausing notifications or even certain threads would be really nice! Thanks for a great app that makes my work and leisure groups easy to communicate with.
videos
brezzy07 on 7/12/2018
can you make it to where longer videos can be sent

its your girl carlito on 7/12/2018
I love group me it helps me stay in contact with family and friends
Opens automatically
BriannaMOne on 7/12/2018
The app is great, the only problem I am having I the message thread automatically opening when I open the app. If there is a new message in the thread I don’t want that message to open up when I open the app. Also just to note, I am not opening the app by notification, my notifications are not on for this app, I am opening the app from the hope screen and I always “force close” the app so it is never running in the background.
TERRIBLE.
Lizzy Lu :) on 7/12/2018
I would give no stars if I could. I have had a man harassing me for weeks. Because he is not on my contact list and I am on an iPhone8+ I cannot block or delete him. I tried creating a new account which did nothing other than change my email and name. Basically kept the same account. There is no help number or anyone I can contact on the website. Awful. No way to protect myself.
Simple and convenient
canade on 7/12/2018
Easy to use for group communication Adding a Tab for “Files” in addition to Gallery, Calendar and Polls would be nice to make sharing PDFs and Docs easier vs getting lost in the chat thread
