Now GroupMe lets you create topics in your groups to better keep track of multiple conversations.
With Topics, you can add individual chat spaces to a group to keep things organized. Imagine your running club can add a topic for a special cause, or your class group can create topics for homework questions and swapping choice memes. Members can easily access and manage notifications for any topic added to a group. Additionally, topics support your favorite features such as pinned messages, polls, and calendar events.
You can easily add topics to any new or existing group where you are an owner or admin. Groups with topics display on your home chat list so you can easily find your DMs, groups, and groups with topics all in one place.
