Group chats are more fun with expressive elements – animated gifs, emoticons and now, emojis on the free GroupMe app for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8 devices. As you can see from the screenshot above (some of the 150-plus available), you can choose the right one for any moment from the compose message screen.
This app, which is now part of the Skype family, works on nearly every phone, via push or SMS. You can start groups with your contacts, and still sends messages via SMS if the data connection isn’t working well. You can also share photos inline (as you can see above). With Live Tiles you can pin group messages and chats right to your start screen, which update as the chats progress.
Install GroupMe from the Windows Phone Store now and start expressing yourself with more options on group chats.
