Yesterday, we reported GroupMe had begun to roll out document sharing for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones, now the Skype-owned company is now rolling out document sharing to iOS, Android, and the Web.
In a blog post on the official GroupMe blog, Microsoft details that users o GroupMe will be able to share documents of up to 500MB in size – pretty large for the average user.
Microsoft indicates that they’ll be adding support for sharing via OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox natively as well. Users of the Windows 10 PC GroupMe app will, of course, be able to share from DropBox and OneDrive using the integrated file picker, while iOS (iPhone and iPad) users already have the ability to share their documents via Dropbox with support for OneDrive and Google currently in the works.
Microsoft says that you can store your files on GroupMe as long as ou want, though it might be worth downloading and storing them locally for a more office t workflow.
GroupMe is a member of the Skype family of apps, and while Microsoft had left it to languish over a time post-purchase, the firm is now working on improving its offering here, albeit curiously doing so in a way that seems to work against its streamlining of communication experiences into Skype.
Microsoft is also working on a Skype Teams app which seems to have a lot of feature overlap with GroupMe as well, it would be interesting to how both apps would be balanced should the Skype Teams app ever be released.
