Microsoft has recently rolled out a new update for its GroupMe app. When it comes to new features, though, there’s nothing to talk about.

What has changed is its user interface: the app previously sported a two color interface — blue and white. Now, grey has replaced blue, so you have a grey and white interface. However, the most important update is the compatibility with large screen devices such as tablets and PCs. Regarding OS compatibility, the app is now Windows 10 compatible. Before the update, the app was described as being only Windows 10 Mobile compatible, as MS Poweruser reports.  The app is not available in the desktop store although there is a clear redirection to the site.

This could mean two things: either the tech giant has already rolled out the app version for Windows 10 PC or this hints at a future GroupMe version for Windows 10 PC. According to users, the new version of GroupMe is a Universal Windows Platform app:

It’s obvious its a UWP app. You can tell by the, speed and scalability when you turn landscape. Anything UWP is one click away from either mobile or desktop equivalent.

And Microsoft is not planning to stop here with the updates and the improvements. The company promises on its Store page that:

We’ve rebuilt GroupMe from the ground up for Windows 10 and are working hard to add more features. We can’t wait to show you, stay tuned!

GroupMe is a free, simple way to stay connected with those who matter most to you: family, friends and colleagues. The app features include:

  • chatting: you can add anyone to a group via their phone number or email address.
  • integrated with Windows: you can view your groups in the People app and you can reply to messages fast with interactive notifications.
  • control notifications: you can select the type of notifications you receive and when to get them.
  • chat wherever you are: you can even chat from your computer at groupme.com.
