GroupMe is a popular group-messaging app from Microsoft, enables you to communicate with multiple contacts at once in chatrooms. We previously covered version 4.7 back in December, which introduced a new group design. Today, we're looking at yet another update, bringing GIF support and more.

Here's the full change log for version 4.7.1:

  • View images and GIFs shared via URL in the chat
  • See which of your groups are muted
  • Hide Direct Messages
  • More bug fixes and improvements


We've used GroupMe when covering events and for general discussion and found it to be invaluable when needing to get hold of one another while mobile. It's a sweet service, available cross-platform, offering a free way for colleagues or friends to remain in contact.

You can download GroupMe from the Windows Phone Store for free.
