Hey there, Android users! We want to let you in a on a little secret…we’ve been working on completely redesigning our Android app and we want YOU to help us test it!
We’re not quite finished building out this version, but here’s what you can expect starting today:
- GroupMeme - meme or re-meme images uploaded to the chat
- See GIFs animated (up to 3mb) sent from your gallery or via a link
- Save GIFs your friends send in the chat to your gallery
- Use GroupMe direct messages to have private one-on-one messages with any of your friends using the app - find the full list in your Contacts
- Clear chat history for groups and direct messages
- Explore your Chats Archive
- Major improvements to battery usage, notifications, emoji download, picture sending, and generally just more awesome all around
And coming soon:
- Robust in-app notifications
- Links to Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo and more will display the content in the chat
- The ability to change your phone number and email address within the app
- Improved registration and PIN delivery
- Support for 22 languages
- + lots more!
You’ll need to sign up for GroupMe to try out the beta. Already use GroupMe? Here’s how to get access:
FIRST join this Google+ community
SECOND become a tester. If you get an error on this page, make sure you’ve joined the community first!
THIRD check for an update to GroupMe in the Play Store on your device. Be patient - it may take a little while for you to see the update.
Then, just login with your email and password and start using the app. You can invite your friends to join the beta community too! Feel free to post on the G+ community with any and all feedback you have. We want to make this the best version of GroupMe yet and we can only do that with your help.
Love, Team GroupMe #)
