You can download the GroupMe app from the App Store, Play Store and Windows Phone Store. If you’re on a desktop, you can use the web version of GroupMe instead.

To set up GroupMe:

  1. Enter your Facebook details, Microsoft Account, Google Account or email address, and then tap Continue.

  2. Enter your name, set an avatar (profile photo) and create a password.

  3. Check the box to indicate that you agree to the Terms of Service.

  4. Check the box if you want to sync your contacts to GroupMe, then tap Continue.

  5. Enter your phone number and then tap Get PIN. We will send you a text message (SMS) containing a PIN.

  6. Enter the PIN we sent to your phone into the app and tap Continue. We will take you through a brief tutorial to get you started.

Note: If you do not have a smart phone, you can use GroupMe over SMS. This feature is only available in the US.

To get started, simply text START to GROUP (47687). We’ll walk you through everything from there.
