We are excited to announce that sharing on GroupMe just got easier. We are partnering with If This Then That (IFTTT), a service that connects different apps and services, such as Instagram, ESPN, DropBox, and GroupMe to each other. Now you can automatically share content from these apps directly to specified groups on GroupMe.
Here are just some of the fun ways to use IFTTT:
Let ESPN tell your friends know when a game starts and send updated scores.
Don’t make your family and friends plead for your vacation photos. Send Instagram photos of your latest excursions to the people who matter most.
Always have the latest revisions. Coworkers can share their public Dropbox files so that everyone has the most up-to-date documents.
Never forget another team practice, meeting…or happy hour. A Google Calendar notification of upcoming events keeps your group on track.
Send and share images and articles from Pocket, Instapaper, and Readability to any of your groups.
You can also combine recipes:
SMS => Google Calendar => GroupMe allows you to create a Google calendar event via text message then share that event with your group!
