GroupMe enables group messaging on any phone that can text, regardless of who makes it or what operating system it runs, according to a review in the Wall Street Journal. There are three notable features in the new GroupMe app for Android, according to the paper: It’s programmable and usable through GroupMe’s website, so groups can be set up there and group conversations can be continued there; it lets users directly message just one person in a group for more private messaging; and its app for smartphones now works around the world in 90 countries with 900 carriers. But the downside to group chats is that not everyone in the group will want to share everything they say with everyone else. GroupMe’s newest Android app is now available. A new iPhone app is expected soon, and GroupMe apps for BlackBerry and Windows Phone are expected to be updated this fall.
