The report, which includes screenshots of the document transferring feature in action, was posted by Windowsblogitalia based on what they state is an unreleased internal build of GroupMe. Adding this to the app will certainly be a welcome addition for GroupMe users. Be aware that this feature is still reportedly in testing and may or may not be released in the future.

GroupMe, alone is an amazing service and when I tell others about this, they're like they've never heard of such a thing and it's great. This service works whether you have Windows, Android, Apple, Blackberry, even a basic flip phone!!!!
And also I created GroupMe Bots to troll my friends ☺
GroupMe overlaps Skype only if you use it as you'd use a Skype app. That's where the similarities end. And all of that with a "dumb" feature phone!
What a brilliant idea this was.
Personally, I would have prefered them to finally fix the calendar integration with W10 calendar app, but sending files would be a welcome addition, nonetheless. GroupMe funny stickers have been my favorite for a long time. I still don't understand MSFT's strategy with GroupMe vs Skype, similar to their Office 365 features, which will directly compete with their Slack service. I doubt it is just plain carelessnes or lack of vision and wonder if it is their take on internal competition to push their teams to compete and invent at faster pace? GroupMe occasionally crashes on me whe trying to share photos from the Photos app, but still, GroupMe is a fantastic app and the latest build resolved my major gripe - slow speed. I hope they don't kill it as yet another niche product with a decent user base and force all users to move to Skype, without building GroupMe functionality into Skype first.
