Our iPhone app was just updated with a few really great new features.
First of all, we’ve fulfilled one of our most common requests: you can now clear your group chat history. Messages in your group that you don’t want on your phone? Just swipe over to the right drawer in any group, scroll past all the members, and tap “Clear Chat History”. The rest of the group will still be able to see them, but now you don’t have to look at them anymore, even if you sign in on a different device.
The new iPhone app also lets you share and save animated GIFs in your group. Enough said.
And finally, in our iPhone app and on the web, we’re introducing a really fun feature that has deep roots in our office culture. Now, you can make memes to share with your groups. It’s easy and delightful. Just try it and see!
In the iPhone app, simply tap the paper clip icon, choose a photo from your roll, and then tap “Meme”. Type any text you want for the top and bottom of the photo, and it’s added in real time.
Boom. Ready to share with the group.
We’ve made it just as easy on the web, as well. Just drag an image file into the chat…
And add text.
We can’t wait to hear what you all can do with this. Tweet us screenshots!
If you need some inspiration, click the meme below to read about how we use them here at GroupMe HQ.
