Basic Features and Usability

GroupMe offers users all of the most important functions within a centralized platform. Some basic options include direct messaging, group chats and the ability to access the application from a personal computer. As this software caters to international needs, it can be a great idea when speaking with friends and family members living abroad. Groups sessions are offered and it is even possible to send entire URLs within a standard chat.

Additional Benefits

Besides standard direct messaging, GroupMe provides several other advantages. Images, GIFs and memes can all be sent with the click of a button. A handy image gallery will store this information for download at a later time. Users can control the types of notifications that they receive and it is possible to mute the application when necessary.
