GroupMe is a free service for organizing group communication. The platform allows you to send chat or SMS messages to the phone of your conversation partner, and works on any device thanks to the apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
Why use GroupMe?
The service is useful for personal communication with friends and family members, organizing events (meetings, parties, school and department meetings). The program is free for any number of participants, which makes it accessible to a wide range of people who want to save money, including freelancers, owners of startups and small businesses.
The software allows you to send text messages as well as videos and photo galleries. You can “Like” participants and their content, add emoji, share photos and videos, and connect geolocation. The system provides for creation of group and personal chats and possibility to disable notifications. SMS messages from GroupMe are sent from a laptop or computer without installing additional applications. All you have to do is specify the subscriber’s number. The program allows you to use simple global commands to manage contact lists (change group name, add and delete a participant, mass mailing). You can send them as tags to several developers and thus remotely manage the chat processes.

Account without a phone number
If you want to recreate your account, you won’t be able to sign up for the same number right away; you’ll need to wait a few days. If you need an account right away, you can sign up with a one-time virtual number. This number can be purchased on the Sms-man website. Go to the site, top up your balance and purchase a number on the main page of the site. Select the country of the number, and then the service – GroupMe. The registration confirmation code will appear on the site. In conclusion, with such numbers you can quickly register any service. It is convenient and much easier than buying a new SIM card.
