Skype Revamps GroupMe App For Windows Phone

GroupMe, the cross platform messaging group which is part of Skype today released a completely revamped version of its app for Windows Phone. The new app features the following in addition to the old features,

• Pin groups to start: Pin any of your groups to start for quick and easy access. From the main panorama, press and hold on any chat, and then click “pin to start” from the context menu. A secondary tile will be created for that group with its own avatar and live tile notifications.

• Create your first group for your family, friends, or coworkers, and enjoy free group messaging that will work on all their phones. Need ideas? Start with one of the suggested groups.

• Add contacts to your group right from your address book by clicking the address book icon on the new group screen. No need to remember anyone’s phone number.

• Share pictures to your group from your camera or photo gallery.

• Tap any of your contacts’ avatars to have private one-on-one conversations, but only if they also have the GroupMe app installed.

• Create a group with any of the featured brand partners to receive their updates and possibly win prizes.

• Set your own avatar by clicking settings from the main panorama app bar and swiping over to the profile pivot.

• Have a bad data connection? Switch to SMS-mode from the settings screen and receive messages via normal text messaging.
