GroupMe version 4 for Windows Phone on its way

GroupMe, a service which enables the creation of chat groups via data connection (or SMS as a backup), has bumped all mobile apps available on multiple platforms to version 4, except Windows Phone. According to an email sent out today, the app on Microsoft's platform will be updated soon.

Currently on version 3.5, GroupMe was last updated back in August where a number of improvements were made, including a cleaner UI and much desired functionality. GroupMe is now owned by Skype (Microsoft) so we expect to see better platform support in the future.

You can download the current version from the Windows Phone Store for free. Until version 4 is available for Windows Phone (possibly only 8 being supported), one can check out what's new on Android and i OS.

Fragmentation!!! Its going to be annoying for another few years until all the 7.x devices are history.

WinFan1 says:

good because i use groupme alot this app is hella slow

Gorki247 says:

Why isn't this integrated into Skype?

Vheissu says:

This app is one of the biggest reasons i want a WP8 device so it can launch faster, it's so slow.

Jf.Vigor says:

This app is slow as balls. I use it everyday almost as much as texting but I have all my messages come through as SMS because this app is like an old man on the interstate highway!

prowade says:

Can anyone tell me why someone would use this rather than texting? Also while we are on the subject, what is the best of these group messaging apps to use? And if Skype owns GroupMe, why should I bother with it, since Skype has an IM service?

erichon99 says:

I use this app too for volunteer group messaging, but I'm just confused why this isn't going to be integrated with Skype on WP8.

dalydose says:

GroupMe sounds like it will be irrelevant when we have "Rooms"
