GroupMe is a popular service from Microsoft, enabling consumers to connect with others using groups (hence the name). It's an app that allows the transfer of photos, while making use of both push and SMS for messages. GroupMe was previously bumped to version 4.2, which is now being replaced by 4.3. The latest release has been submitted for publication.
The question is: what's new in v4.3? Well, you'll be pleased (as a GroupMe user) that the team has followed what feedback was provided and we're now looking at an update that includes a number of new features.
Oh, I say! Hello there, counters!
Here's what's new for Windows Phone 8 owners only:
- Custom tile sizes and badge counts
- Lock screen notifications
New features and improvements for all users:
- Load earlier messages in any group
- Mark all unread now works correctly
- Non-standard characters in a name are now supported
That's right, folks. Custom tile sizes and badge counters will be implemented in the next release. It's good to see some features and fixes being added for those on legacy hardware too. The team behind GroupMe isn't stopping here though. Talks on future development is already underway and they're eagerly looking at what can be added next.
We are told that consumers can expect to see the update go live within the next 24 hours. You can download GroupMe from the Windows Phone Store.
