One of our favorite apps at events, like this past Nokia World 2013 or //Build/, is GroupMe for Windows Phone. The app allows those of us covering the event to stay in communication with the rest of the Windows Phone Central team. It’s great because it works on nearly every phone, either via push notifications in the app or SMS. GroupMe was also just updated for Windows Phone. Let’s see what’s new in this latest update.
The last update for GroupMe came out back in August. That update was notable for including new emoji and fixing some issues for the previous update. Today we’re looking at version 126.96.36.199 in the Windows Phone Store. Here’s what is new with it:
- Copy messages
- Improved message delivery
- View previously sent messages while offline
- See muted group members
- Faster app start up
- Bug fixes
This is actually a pretty nice update. The app will now let you see previously sent messages even if you’re offline. You can also copy messages, which is always handy when needing to look up directions.
The app is also looking at general performance improvements and bug fixes. For example, it’s pretty fast at start up now. Overall, a solid update to a great app.
Want GroupMe? It’s free for Windows Phone 7.x and 8. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
