GroupMe is a popular group messaging app that makes it easy to stay in touch with friends, family, coworkers, classmates, and more.
While GroupMe groups can be a fun and convenient way to communicate, sometimes you may want to delete a group you no longer need.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to delete a group on GroupMe for Android.
Steps to Delete a Group on GroupMe Android
Open the GroupMe App and Go to the Group Page
To start, open the GroupMe app on your Android device. Once the app is open, go to the “Chats” tab at the bottom and tap on the group you want to delete.
This will take you to that group’s page where you can view the full chat history, group members, and more.
Tap the Group Name at the Top
At the very top of the group page, you’ll see the group’s name, picture, and various icons. To delete the group, tap directly on the group’s name at the top.
This will open a menu with options like “View Info,” “Add Members,” “Leave Group,” and more.
Select “Delete Group”
Now simply select the red “Delete Group” option at the bottom of this menu.
GroupMe will ask you to confirm that you really want to delete the group. Tap “Delete” again to proceed.
The Group is Now Deleted
That’s all there is to it! The group will be permanently deleted from GroupMe once you confirm the deletion.
All former group members will no longer be able to send or view messages in the deleted group. The group will also be removed from your list of active chats.
Keep in mind that you must be the group creator to delete a GroupMe group. If you’re not the admin, you can only leave the group yourself.
Deleting a GroupMe group is a quick and straightforward process on Android. With just a few taps in the app, you can easily remove any group you no longer need or want to be a part of.
What happens when I delete a GroupMe group?
When you delete a GroupMe group, it is permanently removed and can no longer be accessed by any members. All previous messages and media will also be deleted.
Can I delete a GroupMe group if I’m not the admin?
No, only the group creator (admin) has the ability to fully delete a GroupMe group. If you are not the admin, you can only leave the group yourself.
Can I recover a deleted GroupMe group?
Unfortunately, once a GroupMe group is deleted, it cannot be recovered. The deletion is permanent. You would have to create a brand new group if you wanted to start over.
Deleting a group on GroupMe for Android is a straightforward process that only takes a few taps once you’re in the group page. This can help clean up your chats by removing any outdated or unwanted groups. Just make sure you really want to delete the group, as the action cannot be undone!
