Hey, here’s a very helpful GroupMe feature that you may not know about.
Ever get woken up in the middle of the night by someone blowing up your group? Or been unable to focus on your work because your friends just won’t stop chatting? We can’t help you make your friends less talkative, but we can help you ignore them for a little while!
If one of your groups just won’t shut up…
Easy. Mute it! In the app, slide to the left to see the members drawer and flip the switch. Your phone won’t make any noise when this group is updated.
You might also want to consider putting the group in Office Mode, which turns off notifications for everyone in the group. It’s helpful if your phones are buzzing all day when you’re all actually just using the GroupMe website to chat, or if everyone checks the group often enough that nobody needs notifications. Turn on Office Mode by hitting Edit in the members drawer, or from the group settings on web.
If ALL of your groups just won’t shut up…
Need some sleep, huh? Slide to the right, and hit the gear icon. Tap “Turn off all notifications until…” and choose the length of time you need. GroupMe won’t buzz your phone for any reason until that time is up.
Just be sure to check in on those muted groups every now and then. You wouldn’t want your friends to think you’re ignoring them… would you?
