Popular group messaging app GroupMe has just received a nice update that adds a slate of new features. First up, version 4.3 of the app features a flatter design inspired by the minimalistic look of iOS 7. And most importantly, the update adds the ability to send videos to groups. Users can record videos directly in the app, up to 30 seconds long, and also attach previously recorded videos from their Camera Roll. Videos can also be attached to direct messages. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, GroupMe can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. The service, which was acquired by Skype in 2011, works with smartphone apps or even via SMS. Because the app uses a data connection, messages can also be sent and received with an iPod touch or iPad. Others can also join a group with a simple URL. An update earlier this year brought the ability to quickly see shared photos and easily split the cost of a purchase between friends.
