GroupMe for Negative User Reviews

Where is the contact Support?!?I’ve used this app for the past 7 years of my life. I throughly enjoyed using it to connect with all different groups of friends regarding meet-ups, vacations, and other assortment of plans. It’s a great communicator in that sense to keep you informed with your various groups within your own life. However, the past three years of my life, I’ve been constantly harassed by a friend who has gone a bit psychotic in the past couple of years and has been diagnosed schizophrenic and bi-polar. He will constantly create new accounts every day literally telling me “to kill myself” or “that my life has no meaning and I should just end it.” I wake up every morning to a new account sending me that same old message. I’ve tried countlessly to report the accounts or block them but the next day happens the exact same. It feels like a horrific groundhogs day effect. GroupMe support has never once responded to my feedback request or contact support requests. It’s frustrating because I love using this app, but had to delete because I need to stop hearing hate messages from an ex-friend who won’t stop harassing me on your app..Version: 5.51.1

RuinedHave loved using this app for a number of years. Great way for us to share stats for our fantasy football league and has a nice desktop web app too. BUT ... every time they release an update they add a host of new bugs. This latest update makes the group pretty unusable. Messages don't load unless you exit the group and go back in, viewing images sends you back about 6 weeks in the chat thread. It's totally unusable, not fit for purpose and we have decided to take our business elsewhere..Version: 5.6.1

Update makes app unstableEver since the most recent update, the app crashes and gets very slow. It used to be much better..Version: 4.4.1

Bugs need to be resolved.Forced log out and unable to log back in. Many issues for all members of group..Version: 5.53.1

No groupsI can't find groups, I can just create ones.Version: 5.55.2

Fix itCan’t log in.. time to use another app..Version: 5.52.1

Why is it so difficult to include a DELETE buttonAbsolutely rubbish when they cannot even include a most basic function such as a ‘delete’ button for those posts/pictures which you may have posted accidentally in the group.Version: 5.14.1

Notifications bugsNotifications bugs are getting worst. Even tho messages are all read the notifications badges don’t go away..Version: 5.55.2

Unable to log in!!The app logged me out and now won’t let me log in….tried multiple times, deleted and reinstalled it and nothing!!! Garbage…so frustrating!!.Version: 5.52.1

Keeps crashing.Please fix this issue/bug. Every time it opens it will close again. Thanks!.Version: 5.41.0

No goodEvery time I log in, it just kicks me back to the login page. Looks like people have been having this issue for quite some time and they haven’t fixed it. Find a more reliable app..Version: 5.53.3

Terrible!!!I should be able to bookmark messages or delete them. This is just so bad.Version: 5.55.2

Painful registeringMy partner created an account and sent me a group invite so I followed the procedure and decided to use my Apple ID to register. Other options were with a Microsoft account or Google. So after 2 days in a loop I eventually created an account but the invite was expired despite receiving an email reminder 1 hour ago from this app. Deleted, deleted and deleted email. Life is too short for this..Version: 5.47.0

What is this?This is just poop.Version: 5.54.2

REPLY FEATURE NEEDEDWe use this app frequently enough however I think that with the option to view votes would be useful. The app is still not 100%.Version: 5.43.3

Image qualityGreat app all round except image quality which is absolutely horrendous... I'm continually asked to provide feed back of which is ignored. I can't see why the people at groupme are dragging their feet on this....Version: 5.2.3

CrashingKeeps crashing on me the first 2-3 attempts takes me 4-5 turnes to finally get on. Great app overall just c if u can fix this issue thanks :).Version: 4.3.4

Dumb appKeeps telling me my login details are in use or incorrect - which means I can’t use the app..Version: 5.43.2

I can’t add peopleI can’t add people I have sent invites but none of my friends and family have seen them come through please help me!!.Version: 5.36.0

Modern WarGame is full of lags and often don’t get rewards as you should do.Version: 5.43.1

App logs me out, should be able to send longer high quality videosThe app randomly logs me out every few months and when I log back in I can’t see any of my previous chats or contacts. I have some peoples’ contacts through this app alone, so it’s really annoying when that happens. However, if I delete the app and redownload it, usually everything comes back. Not all the time though, and the process is very tedious so I wish this wouldn’t happen. The last time I was logged out it was across all of my devices and it wouldn’t let me log back in for several weeks even though I entered the correct password (it seemed like it was glitching out). If getting logged out is still a necessary procedure I wish there was at least some warning beforehand. Also wish we could send longer videos through the app while maintaining image quality. Other than that it’s pretty good, sorry for the low rating..Version: 5.35.1

Recent updateWas automatically logged in and used this app for a while. Now I am kicked out upon logging in rendering the app useless..Version: 5.52.1

HorribleKeeps logging me out and when I try to log back in it just spins forever and would not let me back in.Version: 5.56.0

TerribleThis app keeps kicking me out and the connection was terrible. Made me so angry and I will try something else, hopefully it will be more reliable than this. Would not recommend..Version: 5.41.0

Will not allow me to log inI’ve been using group me a number of years. It no longer lets me log in. Once logging in, it goes back to the log in page rather than the app opening. App is up to date. Phone up to date. Have even tried logging in on browser..Version: 5.53.3

It’s okOk frustrating that you have to manually scroll to find old messages that takes forever, to the point u give up as its laggy and takes forever for the app to load old messages!.Version: 5.15.1

Keeps on logging me in and logging me outNot working! Please fix the glitch!.Version: 5.52.1

Excellent appDoes everything it says and more. Highly recommend..Version: 5.2.3

What?It’s for 4+ and I’m twelve so I put my age in and it deleted my account. And it said I’m not eligible for one what ???.Version: 5.21.0

Constant issues with loginLogs me out of my account once every one to two months and doesn’t allow me to log back in. Always says there’s an issue and the support team does nothing to help..Version: 5.56.0

Date of BirthExactly how many times do I have to enter my date of birth on this app. One more request and I delete this (cr) app.Version: 5.19.0

Update: surely not, Aprils fool joke early perhaps?GroupMe; I have been using this app now for some considerable time and having used a number of similar apps, considered it the best of the bunch. However; that all changed just two days ago. The reason? I downloaded the latest update. I find it hard to believe that a company can attempt to improve an app and yet degrade it so much. Was no research done. After a great deal of thinking I finally came up with one improvement. It lists new messages. That's it. I can't even begin to list the failings of this app, I just wouldn't know where to start. Please tell me that this is an April Fools joke, and that you got your dates wrong! Failing that, would you please bring the old app back, as I believe that this update is beyond fixing. I will give this app one star purely because it once was the best. But I am being extremely generous One disgruntled user..Version: 5.0

GifsCan’t send a Gif since the new update on iOS always problems. And when ask get told to connect Microsoft. Very poor.Version: 5.19.0

Crashing????Why can I not check my messages??? App keeps crashing.Version: 5.41.0

It’s not getting any betterMake it more like Discord. And before you tell me to just go use Discord, I already do, but literally no one else in my family or community does, so I’m stuck on GroupMe for all the family and friend stuff like outings and parties and whatnot. Let us edit a message, or even delete a message we sent. What good is it to just hide the message on only my device? Another thing I want is to be able to delete a one-on-one chat with someone. That’s all. I don’t want to “hide” it. I don’t want to “clear” it. I want to straight up delete it. It obviously wouldn’t delete it from their device, just mine. And then what would happen if they messaged me again? Oh it would behave like every other messaging app ever made and just create a new chat with the person on my device. And then when we were done chatting, I could delete it again, just like that. I don’t feel like I’m asking too much, but then again I’m no developer, so maybe I am. Maybe deleting stuff is near impossible. Apple somehow figured it out. I can delete any conversation I want from iMessage. But then they are known for their “it just works” way of doing things. You guys should ask them how they do it. Send them a kind, humble email asking them how in the world they figured out how to delete a one-on-one chat in iMessage. Please, do it for me..Version: 5.32.0

Errors ALWAYSThe amount of times I try and add or remove someone from the groups and I get a “failed to remove” message or “failed to add” is bananas. App is soooo glitchy these last 5 months.Version: 5.55.2

Was good, but ran into a major problemI used to love GroupMe and I would use it for all my group activities that required lots of mass-communication. But recently, it started doing this thing where it doesn’t load all of the most recent messages until I send one. As you can imagine this is very inconvenient and makes me look like I’m not paying attention to the conversation, or I make a comment on something when ppl are talking about something completely different. One time someone sent a very sentimental and heartfelt message, but it never loaded on my end, so I sent a meme and it was very awkward. I don’t think this is just an internet issue though, because it happens to a lot of other people in various group chats. It’s a big deal to me because it kind of defeats the whole purpose of GroupMe if we can’t all communicate and receive messages effectively. It’s gotten to the point where I just don’t send messages anymore because I’m worried that I’ll have another incident like the one I mentioned. Please fix this and I’ll give you guys 5 stars, because otherwise it’s a really good app!.Version: 5.54.2

Update still buggyStops writing if you delete, use caps lock or auto fill a full stop. Needed more testing before release!.Version: 4.3

Stopped workingWas using the app everyday to talk with game groups now like the others mentioned I am logged out and it won’t work anymore. I sent a message and never received a reply..Version: 5.52.1

BadCan’t login for over a month.Version: 5.55.2

Unable to use.I am completely unable to log in to my account, I know the password and I’m able to logon on quite literally any other platform. Disappointment of an app.Version: 5.36.1

BadCan’t login for awhile now fix it.Version: 5.55.2

New iso 14.1 update killed this appNew Apple iso update killed this app.Version: 5.50.0

Glitch Control to Major Tom!I have used GMe extensively for several years for many applications, especially small, social group scheduling. I ceased use for the last 8 months since the pandemic. Just started using it again and finding numerous glitches in the schedule forum. For example, when typing the location, there are dots in the left corner, but when typing text, you can’t see the letters unless typing a very long name. When dropping down from the location line to enter a physical address, it will not allow the ability to enter a street address. Then when entering a description, if you type out a longer description, but then make a mistake, you have to delete any text filling your typo by using backspace. You cannot just move the cursor to the mistake and edit. Like I said, these are all new issues. I’ve never experienced this before. It seems that GMe has gone the way of the neglect of a larger parent organization buying out a great platform and then ruining it by assuming it can run on auto-pilot, leaving behind the hard work that the startup company invested to make it great..Version: 5.45.6

Still terribleOk so now I can ad captions to images again. Thank you. It is extremely clunky to do so, it seems I have to use the meme button to get back from making a caption. Please re-release version 4. I will pay money for it..Version: 5.0.7

Changes neededIt would be appreciated if when an iPad is turned around the screen did also. Ability to download longer video clips would be good. Also need to be able to add comments to a thread..Version: 5.8.0

App is good an somewhat security consciousBut major technical issues. It constantly has login issues and changing the phone can cause it to fail to login. Sometimes it doesn’t restore groups properly and sometimes doesn’t update message chat list. It operates like a BETA version of an application. Trash..Version: 5.56.0

Date of Birth infoPlease can you add a DOB section in the ‘account’ info section along with name, email address, etc? I keep getting notifications telling me to give DOB, I click the link, am asked to log in online, I do so, then sent from internet to the app page, at which point it all goes quiet and no more requests pop up and there is NO SECTION to enter your DOB manually and so I can’t! I don’t want to be blocked from using this app because of this system - please can you help make it easier. Thanks..Version: 5.19.0

Can't message anyone.Only one person appears in the list. Everyone has to have this app to message them so it's useless. I just want to replace the message app with a better app that I can send text via sms or internet. If I want to message people and have chats I'll use Facebook messenger.Version: 5.2.6

Terrible-kicks out and won’t let me sign back inI have had this app for several years. Not sure what has changed but it was good up until about a week ago. Was recently automatically logged out and went to sign back in and it wouldn’t let me. Changed my password about 10 times and keeps saying “something went wrong”. I am not able to get back into my account. Possibly a glitch in an update, but it has become very frustrating, I do not recommend..Version: 5.52.1

Glitch with Notifications :\Personally, I think this app is pretty good. However, the thing that has been driving me absolutely NUTS is that when I open the app to read the newest messages, it doesn’t update afterwards that I read them, so when I exit the app it still shows that I have those same number of unread messages. I’ve tried clicking on each message on the thread and scrolling all the way up through every message to see if either of those things would fix it, but unfortunately it hasn’t done a thing to fix it. Been SO tempted to just delete the app to get rid of the notifications showing up as unread after I have for sure read them. Please find a way to fix this glitch soon! It is driving me absolutely INSANE!! I really want to enjoy this app, but it’s been so hard to with that glaring glitch constantly showing up. 😞 Please fix this!.Version: 5.35.0

Not able to log inThe new update doesn’t let me log in. Can’t check my urgent work-related updates. Can’t connect with my team. This login problem (where I can’t log in without getting kicked out) has been happening for a couple weeks now, on lots of different devices. Please fix this issue, thanks..Version: 5.52.1

Awful performance issuesI am always disappointed when I am forced to re-download GroupMe for other people. It’s performance while not on WiFi is absolutely abysmal. I often receive messages in my notifications bar from other group members. Then when I navigate to the group chat the messages, they are not there. I try to memorize the message in the notification bar if it is short enough to understand how to reply. Sometimes it takes up a few minutes for them to display In the chat. I can sometimes get it to show faster if I try to force a refresh. This lag has resulted in me not only missing messages but also leaving people behind on trips. I use telegram, signal, iMessage, discord, WhatsApp, and messenger. None of them have the performance issues that GroupMe does while on cell service. I don’t understand why this app is so highly rated when it has such critical issues on a modern iPhone. If GroupMe’s user base wasn’t so large I wouldn’t have to keep downloading it..Version: 5.20.0

Slow, losing connection all the timeWorst messenger app what I ever use in my life.Version: 5.29.3

Most disappointing, don’t waste your time. Kicks you out and won’t let you log back in.I loved this app for years and used it for all my sports teams. Recently it logged me out and won’t let me log back in. I’ve changed my password through the forgot my password link and looked up as much as I can through the support but it’s all garbage. Now I have to find a new app and recreate all these groups which is a ton of work. Tried to get a hold of support but they don’t have anything that can help anyone..Version: 5.52.1

Terrible functionality, many bugs, and lack of innovationHave had this app for 8 years. The only reason i still have it is because my friends think just as archaically as the people who run this app and refuse to change to something else. It is terrible. Every so often I can’t see new messages unless i open the app, quit and relaunch. Message very often are unable to deliver even though i have full service and can send messages and use internet with every other app. All that said about the poor functionality of the app and the many bugs, they haven’t made a significant update to the app since i first started using it in 2012. The design is the same and outdated, no new features. You would think this app was purchased by Microsoft, they would up their game. Utter incompetence..Version: 5.49.1

Won’t let me log inEver since the update GroupMe won’t let me login anymore. I use this for work and I suppose not everyone is experiencing this, but a lot of people are and it’s frustrating that all the work related stuff I can’t even see anymore. Please fix this, it’s been weeks and I’m tired of it.Version: 5.52.1

Get rid of phone verificationI got this app because a bunch of my friends started a group with it I go to make an account and realise I need a phone number Easy right? Well except I don't have a phone with SMS! There is no option to get the pin via email so I have since deleted the app Add an email verification. You are costing yourselves users. I sincerely hope you read this and take it into consideration.Version: 5.2.6

This app is full of crap.Okay. I use groupme for one reason: it doesn’t require every member in a group chat to have group chat abilities on their device. That being said, it’s a load of crap. I hate it. If someone hasn’t responded, for one, they may not be getting the messages. Second, if *I* set up this group chat, and put these people on it, that means I have their contact information, so if they don’t want to be on it anymore, LET US TAKE CARE OF IT. IT IS NOT FOR THE APP TO DECIDE WHETHER THESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT TO BE A PART OF THE GROUP. Some people are also content to receive the messages and not reply. It’s a thing, believe it or not. Let the members of the group chat deal in their own affairs, and stop making assumptions, especially TWO SECONDS after I just deleted someone and put them back on FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF ALLOWING THEM TO SEE THE NOTIFICATIONS AGAIN!!! Honestly! Either cut that out or at least make it easier for someone to discontinue the discontinuation of notifications. This is an awful app and y’all whoever designed this piece of crap needs to get it fixed..Version: 5.17.1

STUPIDI want to log on to the full site to try and change my display name once and for all as each time I get added to a new group (for gaming purposes) my real name is displayed. I only have an ipad and every time I log on to the full site it redirects me to this bloody useless app. Why, why, why do apps have to be a crap, inferior, cut down version of the real deal? If I wanted to use the app, I would bloody log in to it, I don't need help redirecting. THANKS!!!!!.Version: 5.0.5

I’m sorry but what?!I CANT DELETE IR OPEN THE APP I CAN ONLY OPEN IT FROM THE APP STORE ITS A WASTE IF MY STORAGE BECAUSE I CANT DELETE IT! IM VERY DISAPPOINTED AND UPSET BECAUSE I NEED STORAGE This app is totally SH*T!.Version: 5.35.1

It’s goodThe only issue I have this app is that for some reason I’m unable to send pictures. I’ve tried everything to fix it: updating the app, removing the app from my phone and downloading it again, signing out and signing in again, turning off access to photos and turning it on again, and none of it worked. When I try to send it, it immediately appears with a symbol and a notification indicating that it failed to send, and when I try to send it again, it does the exact same thing. Could you fix this issue please?.Version: 5.41.0

Messages do not sendI keep getting the message that “message failed to send”. I have reinstalled, restarted my phone, and created a new account and this has not resolved it.Version: 5.55.2

Needs some updates.I have been using group me for over 2 years and it is pretty good, except when you try to watch a video it glitches then takes a long tome then it finally lets you. Also i will see that i get a new group me message and it won’t let me view it. The main reason i am writing this review is because of how group me logs you out. i have been logged out multiple times and it is very hard to get back into your account. It logged you out and you can’t get back in. it won’t let me try to type in my email or password. I have been trying for almost and hour and can’t get back in. i am very disappointed because there is some very important information i need to see and i can’t get to. GroupMe please fix this problem. My group me is hacked and i need to get in please group me fixed this problem!!!! i am very mad and i need to get in my group me and stop sending me ads that i won something! please group me stop doing this and fix my account!!.Version: 5.49.1

Works well, but......that Add Location bar is taking up way too much valuable real estate on the screen. Is there really no way to remove it or even just hide it? 3 stars now, but give me back some of my screen and we're in serious business!.Version: 3.0.2

Sucks!!!Been using this app for 8yrs, now it’s just booted me out and won’t sign me back in, uninstalled app and reinstalled, didn’t work, reset password didn’t work, tried making new account and says account already exists. And can’t contact them to get help so app can’t even be used.Version: 5.53.1

Good but could be betterProblems with trying to add people to chats but other than that it's a fantastic app.Version: 5.12.0

PointlessEvery other messaging service = make group + add members, not group me though, just refuses to let members join groups because it “failed” … really helpful message. Overly complicated platform for minimal features, only using it because it’s the only software a system I use will communicate with, once other platforms are supported this will be dropped ..Version: 5.54.2

Needs a fixWas great but now I can’t do anything with it as it keeps kicking me out I’ve tried deleting/reinstalling /updating/logging out. no use disappointed.Version: 5.52.1

Direct message failDirect messages are not showing up!!! i’m the leader of an organizational I get a lot of direct messages,Until now I hadn’t been receiving them. I tried to figure out what the problem was, but this morning I woke up with a notification. It was a direct message, and when I clicked on it and I went into group me, it didn’t take me to the direct message. I refreshed group me went out of the app came back in restarted my phone, tried everything, and I couldn’t get to that message. Thankfully I remembered who sent it, and I went into a group and found their profile and clicked direct message, and when I clicked direct message-their message finally came up. so I did that with some other groups, and some other people in those groups, and realized I had a bunch of unread direct messages that groupme wasn’t showing me. and I can possibly do that with all the groups, because there’s just too many people, and I know that I have unread messages and it’s really really frustrating and there seems to be no way to fix it.Version: 5.49.1

Not working anymoreWas a fantastic app. Several days ago it logged me out and won’t let me back in. I’ve sent emails but the fixes they suggested I had already done and told them I did them. We use this for work. I’m not the only one in my workplace that is having this problem..Version: 5.52.1

A good platformA good app. Had a few issues with friends adding me to the group. The notification feature seems unpredictable if using the app across iOS devices. Also, it's too easy for anyone in the group to mute all phone alerts. If this issues are fixed then it gets a higher rating!.Version: 4.0.2

Won’t let me see any messages or add anyoneThe app won’t let me add anyone or won’t let me see any messages that I’ve been sent.Version: 5.35.0

Fix the login bug!Ever since the newest update I haven’t been able to login to my account without getting kicked right back out..Version: 5.52.1

Can you fix this already?Haven’t been able to log in for over a month. Login, see the messages, and immediately get kicked back to the login screen. How has this not been fixed yet?.Version: 5.52.1

Auto shutting of the appI am using this from past 2 years and just recently it’s start acting up. It’s just just kicks me out to the sign in page. Every time I have to put my I’d and password, verify pin , sync my contacts as soon as I am checking my account with in seconds it’s back to the sign in page. Already uninstalled and reinstalled multiple time. Did all my troubleshoot nothing works..Version: 5.52.1

Chats do not open anymoreIPad Pro M1 15.5 - when I click a chat nothing happens. But if I tap a notification I can enter that specific chat. Works on my iPhone 13 mini 15.0.2.Version: 5.55.2

HisYou guys did an update but i still can’t log in, keeps reverting me back to the login page after i have completed the log in process..Version: 5.54.2

Same as every other appI thought I would be able to connect to new people and groups out there but it’s just for my own contacts. Does no more than what WhatsApp and Skype does better..Version: 5.15.1

Needs the ability to delete chats and have invitesOverall, 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..Version: 5.40.0

TerribleHad been fine up until a few days ago… logged me out and can no longer log back in. Even after resetting my password and reinstalling the app. Terrible..Version: 5.52.1

UpdatesDoesn’t look like they read these reviews so not sure this will ever be rectified... the app is great and easy to use BUT there NEEDS to be an option to delete messages. Especially for business purposes. Groupme! Listen to your reviews..Version: 5.37.1

Group me not workingI automatically logged out then when I tried to log in I can’t log in I changed my password but still there I can’t log in…I badly need this for my work hope it will fix my account ASAP..Version: 5.52.1

BugAfter the new update....Now i cant share videos on my iPhone 6 plus...!!.Version: 5.13.0

Keeps crashingKeeps crashing in this version..Version: 5.54.0

Accessibility issuesI don’t know if I simply have a glitchy download or what but this app is driving me crazy with trying to use voiceover which is a screen reader. I am blind and this app has been very difficult to navigate. What’s worse than an app that is completely inaccessible? An app that appears to be accessible but after you have spent much time setting it up, it proves to be almost impossible to function as it should. I hardly get any notifications and when I follow a notification to the app the app immediately shuts down. I have not been able to add people to the group of volunteers I am setting up for ride requests. I had to figure out how to share a link through text message and many of the people I have invited are also having difficulty with the app. This app was suggested by several friends as a great platform for my needs and I really want it to work. I hope the team who created this app will take a look at these issues. When I open a calendar event, voiceover reads the top and then skips to the bottom and all of the information in between is not accessible. Therefore I cannot find out who has excepted my ride request..Version: 5.52.1

UselessDoesn't work with network providers it claims to, support staff provide no help - good idea in concept.Version: 3.3.1

Won’t let me sign inWhen I try to sign in it won’t let me, it just keeps being me back to the login page. It will ask me to verify my account and once it do it brings me back to the login page..Version: 5.53.3

New userGreat way to send free messages. Not the easiest to use, but it's fee to download.Version: 3.3.1

App qualityHad the app freeze on me a number of times but last week it was stuck on the loading screen and I couldn’t used my phone for hours. I couldn’t even hard reset my iPhone. I was trying everything and accidentally hit my lock button 5 times, which calls the police. The call went thru but since I could not leave the loading screen and use my phone I couldn’t hang up and had to explain to them what happened. They sent people over to my house at midnight to check on us and my parents had no idea what was going on and I had to calm them down and get us back to sleep before we woke up at 4am the next day to catch a flight for vacation. Didn’t have a phone for some of the vacation until I was finally able to hard reset. I love talking to my friends on this application but I have had multiple problems with the quality. This past time was the worst it’s ever gotten and I just got a brand new phone so it can’t be that..Version: 5.36.0

Was a five star app until latest update.This was a 1 of a kind truly great app, Then the latest update happened😞 Now it has a stupid button, right in the center of the bottom Where it’s real easy to hit it by mistake when trying to tap in the type box. Worse it takes you to school stuff. I’ve seen very few kids on this app🤷‍♂️ also it now asks for permission to access the camera every time I try to post a pic. It doesn’t need camera access for that and isn’t going to get it. So to sum up you made it harder to use while making it necessary to be careful exactly where you tap. Old story if it ain’t broke don’t fix it! Update The stupid school button is still very annoying. And when you login or come back to GM from another app you can’t reopen the room you were just in. Have to open another room first then go to the room you want, again you made it worse not better..Version: 5.55.2

BugsI’ve always used group me and am happy with it, however, I have had a lot of trouble adding people to the groups. In big group chats that have been around a long time, people do not want to leave the group me or create a new one usually because there are good memories in the group. On multiple occasions I have been unable to add someone back to a group, either because they have left in the past or because they were removed. I have experienced this issue as an admin and a normal user in a group, and if it happens to one person, nobody in the group has the ability to add that person back. If that person is a vital member of the group, the entire group chat gallery and messages are lost because we have to create a new one. This has happened enough times for me to write a review about it. I am unhappy that our previous groups’ memories have been lost and become inactive and wish I was able to start the old chats again by adding the previous members back..Version: 5.31.0

Messages Not Showing. Edit. Edit againI haven’t had a problem with this until today, but today I got message notifications for a group and could see the messages. But after a while, I was getting notifications but not seeing them when I opened the app. The time stamp shows the time of the most recent message (that I can’t see) in the group. Other than this, I have had no problems and enjoy the app. Edit: I deleted then re-logged into the app, and now I cannot see any of the messages in that group. However, I can still click on the group info and see the images, group members, etc. Also, other group messages and individual chats are unaffected by this. I would really appreciate it if this issue could be resolved soon. Thank you! Edit again: after this update, nothing happened. I still cannot see any messages in the one group (still other groups/messages seem to be unaffected). I get notifications for the group and can click on them, but it brings me to the “group chat” where it says no one has sent anything yet, even though I have gotten notifications. There have been some images sent and I can see those if I click on the button that lets you see all the images others have sent. Please fix!!!.Version: 5.28.0

Use a different group appThis app is buggy and most importantly completely void of any security. You can’t delete chats or block people who you don’t know the phone number to like stalkers, creepy strangers, and mostly scam bots. People who aren’t in you contacts or groups can still direct message you with no way to block, only can ‘hide’ messages. Fat lot of good that does. Bots will contact you for sure, advertising porn and free iphones but GroupMe lets them do it because they don’t care about user security. You will get spammed. Even in normal use it’s a bad app when compared even to email. You can’t send audio, high quality images, video over 30 seconds. You can’t delete posts or search through a group chat. Sometimes you won’t get notifications for no reason. The app loads for a million years. You’ll even get issues logging in and creating an account ‘unknown error’. It’s just a bad app and completely ridiculous they have 4.7 stars. They must be buying reviews is all I can think of.Version: 5.43.2

Navigating Help is TerribleI received an email that my account was changed over to another email, which was not done by me. I clicked on the link provided to indicate that this is an issue, and their “help page” does not have any link specific to the issue. Still trying to solve the problem, I emailed their support email with a quick little blurb about what’s going on and a screenshot of the email I received from them. My email got sent back for being too large, although it had less than a paragraph and one normal sized screenshot image. This experience has been excessively complicated and my problem is not resolved. I am now sitting with concern about having some random person accessing my account. Upon redownloading the app, it is only allowing me to create a new account rather than having any option to log in with a previously made account. I’ve had to spend way more time and energy than is necessary, and still have not been able to get through the process. I’m a 22 year old college student, so I’m fairly competent with technology, but this is ridiculous..Version: 5.15.1

Latest update is the worst!!Please put it back to how it was! If it ain't broke don't fix it and your unnecessary fix broke it. The in app notifications that you can't seem to switch of hamper the use of the app, also the type bar for text fails to appear all the time and groups dissapear or become locked out until you do a force close of the app. Frankly you've ruined it!!!.Version: 5.0.3

AnnoyingApps pretty good except that when it asked me for my phone number I didn’t know I would start getting text messages from the gc and even after I deleted my account I still get gc messages.Version: 5.36.1

THIS IS A WARNING. DO NOT USE THIS APP.I’ve been using GroupMe for years, only because I have no other choice. This app is non-functional. It is incompetently designed and frustrating to use. Up until recently you could not delete messages, and even now you can’t even edit them to fix typos. It’s ability to connect to a device is pathetic, regardless of how strong your wifi or cellular data is. You can’t share videos that are more than 15 seconds long, and gifs only work half the time. It regularly glitches out. When you post a photo set, it shuffles the order of your photos. And, when you try to look through photo sets, when you get to the end of one, if you keep scrolling it will take you through the previous set in BACKWARDS. ORDER. When you try to scroll FORWARD. How asinine is that?! And almost always, if you post a large photo set, and you’ve spent 20 minutes trying to comb through to find the perfect ones to fit within the post limit (10), after you hit send, they will simply not show up in the app, and you have to try again multiple times. These are only a sampling of the problems with this app. This app is BROKEN. DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER CHOICE..Version: 5.54.2

Constant unwanted spamThis app is very Inefficient. The Group App control features does not allow to delete unwanted groups or spam messages. Instead, it gives a feature to “hide it”. There’s another selection it gives to block the message. However, it is useless if it is suppose to “Block” unwanted iM’s. You would think if there’s a “Block” selection It would work like a spam blocker that blocks unwanted messages from an ad or sender. To be honest, I don’t know or understand what it is blocking. I continue to get spammed with unwanted ads that I won stuff and weird messages from people that’s not in my contacts that I cannot delete or block. This app needs a huge reconfiguration. I don’t even want to talk about the time consuming process It takes to block or hide each message. There should be a feature to select multiple group messages that allows the person to actually delete the messages from the app. Also, a “Block” selection that literally does it’s purpose..Version: 5.48.0

Good for groups if people replyWe use GroupMe for a neighborhood chat to keep people informed. When people like or reply to messages everything works great. One really annoying feature of the app is if people stop replying or liking other people’s messages, it stops sending the group messages to the individual. They are still shown in the members of the group but they are no longer receiving messages or notifications. It would be awesome if people could continue receiving messages even if they didn’t reply or like others comments. Another annoying thing about the app is you’ll get messages that say they are from GroupMe support saying you’ve won an iPhone or whatever. They are total spam. I wish GroupMe would prevent those types of messages being sent to people inside their app. Overall the app is good. These are just my frustrations with the app..Version: 5.49.1

Doesn’t workNeeded this app for a new job. Spent a month going back and forward with their support team because my account is completely uncontactable (whenever people tried to send me a message it would tell them I didn’t have the app and send me a text with a link to download the app; which, when clicked on, would redirect to the app I already had downloaded and logged in). The only assistance support could give me was just variations of ‘delete the app and reinstall it’, ‘delete your account and remake it’, and ‘use a different device’ (all of which I tried more than once). Multiple times they took over a week to reply, finally replied on a Friday afternoon, and then sent two follow up e-mails over the weekend saying that because I wasn’t responding they would close my support case; even if I assume that there’s a time zone difference that allowed that period of time to include a business day for them, expecting a response so quickly after taking ten days to send me another email telling me to reinstall the app again is ridiculous. I was willing to accept that the issue might be on my side at first and followed their instructions, but after I did so and there was no change I expected someone to actually look into the cause and not just keep sending me the same troubleshooting techniques I had already tried. The company that hired me were super patient and understanding considering they hired me for an immediate start, but as all of their work gets sent through GroupMe (job that requires travel, location/hours are sent to the GroupMe chat for staff to opt in/out of depending on their location and availability) I wasn’t able to pick up any work for them. Essentially, the terrible tech support for this app lost me a job that I very much needed, and I still have no idea why I was unable to make a functioning account. In trying to solve the problem with a friend we found that I could create an account with their details on my device that worked perfectly, but they couldn’t make an account with my details on their device that could receive messages, so for whatever reason it seems like my personal details were the problem, despite the fact that I could use them to initially sign up and received verification text messages and emails to the contact details provided. I’m sure this app is great for the people it works for, but unfortunately it has been completely unusable for me..Version: 5.51.3

The worstFix the bug already. Logging in doesn’t work..Version: 5.53.0

Great idea but some. tweaks neededI like this app and use it but it is a bit clunky in execution and the instructions not clear to me. I would like a more straightforward way of operating rather than commands. I can't work out how to delete a group I created and have no idea where or how to send commands. Otherwise I like it..Version: 4.2.4

Hi group me I want to join the group I don’t know how to joinHelp.Version: 5.37.1

Multiple media uploads in one goWhy is that I cannot upload multiple pictures or any other media files at once? This is such a small upgrade..Version: 5.12.4

StinksThis app sticks no matter what platform I use it on it does not work there are about 35 of us that use this app in various forms over a 24 hour. Seven days a week sometimes we get a message sometimes we don’t get a message sometimes it goes through 10 minutes later sometimes we don’t ever see the message it’s not any particular platform it’s not the iPad it’s not the iPhone it’s not the messaging app it’s something and I don’t know what it is and it’s very frustrating that I’ve contacted Microsoft 15,000 times and gone on Twitter for GroupMe to ask what the problem is and they keep on telling me delete the app that it’s not just me it’s 40 other people that are having the problem. I don’t know I’m done I’m aggravated I wouldn’t download this app if I was you because they don’t respond back to you I put a Microsoft thing in you can contact GroupMe you got a put a ticket in and wait like five days for a response absolute ridiculous fix the app.Version: 5.50.2

I use it because I have toIt’s almost like this app is used by so many people because.. it’s used by so many people. So many groups use it as a main form of communication that it does become a necessity app. However, it’s built like a cheap scaffolding or paper house. I’ve arrived at numerous glitches: messages not loading, the app not loading, password reset issues, it not remembering my email for a few days (how does that happen?) notifications not coming through until I click on the app, profile pictures and names not updating in real time (not even after weeks of people changing them) not being able to add people to groups despite them having the app & a verified phone number after numerous attempts, and an overall ugly UI. Those are my complaints. Although managing so many threads and accounts and messages has to be a challenge in and of itself, I just feel like it can’t be that hard to put a little money into making it work better and more smoothly. It is free though and it works 80% of the time as intended, and everyone is on it so as of now it’s probably one of the best group chat mediums..Version: 5.55.2

TerribleBeen using this app forever and all of a sudden it can’t function, load any of my chats, can’t send any messages, Connection is perfectly fine all my other apps are functioning this one just broke..Version: 5.51.3

Don’t waste your timeIf you have been sent a join link and then download the app it will still loop you to download the app and you are unable to join the group - completely ridiculous..Version: 5.56.0

Why is there so many scams on this app?I am not sure if someone's account got hijacked or not, but one morning I received a message from GroupMe Support that said "Hello! We sent you a FREE iPhone 11 Pro; Congratulations! Claim now." I've read up online that this is clearly a scam much like the other I received a few months back from a random person. This could be someone impersonating GroupMe's support by going under their name and using their profile picture, but something needs to be done about it. This scam has costed some people their personal and bank information because there is no way of them knowing if this is official or not when a scam disguises itself to make it look more official, but I recommend that you all increase the security and single out any bots or impersonators. I even got a random message from a bot account that wanted to share me "inappropriate photos" on a link, seriously? I am not sure how these people even opening conversations with me as I haven't shared my profile and I don't have them added on my social media profile. It's a bit annoying to know that you don't have actual privacy from these circumstances other than to block the user. I hope the app's security is majorly enforced to prevent scams like this from going around on it..Version: 5.36.1

Hacked?? No longer trusting the appHey GroupMe - what’s up with the pop-ups I’m getting asking for my date of birth or I can no longer use the app? I checked it out on the web and found that it was required for security to make sure I was 18 or older so I entered it. Then I received a “GroupMe Support” message and pop up saying I was selected for being a loyal user to receive an iPad. I was curious and tapped the link because it was within an app I trusted and wanted to see if it was legit. It said I won and asked for name and address and then to check the box agreeing to the terms and conditions which were not given in a link there. I had to scroll way down to find a tiny link. When you read the terms and conditions, they plan to charge you $19 immediately and then after 7 days, another $87 for 30 days and that they have full access to use your account information. I think I need to close my GroupMe account and take our group elsewhere..Version: 5.50.2
