Connect Your Council

These days there are many ways for councils to connect — Remind, Twitter, Facebook Groups, the list goes on and on.

And many councils now are using GroupMe.

For those who are new to the GroupMe experience, it’s very simple. GroupMe is a free group messaging tool. It works through apps (available on almost every platform) and even old-school SMS text messaging.

The messaging platform recently went through a major update and included many new features:

  • Calendar  now you can create calendar events and share them directly with your group. All from inside the app! Read more about this feature here!
  • “Popular” – keep track of the most-liked messages and the messages that you like!
  • Emoji – the emoji craze is alive and well and now you’re emoji messages will appear even larger to have more of an impact!

You can also send YouTube videos, tweets, and even GIFs! And they have a powerful “Media Search” feature to find the best responses for every situation.

You can read more about the exciting updates and awesome features of GroupMe on their blog.
