Adding the Widget

Hi friends!

We are so glad it's the weekend! Whatever you have planned with your friends, grooop is there to keep you safe and connected every step of the way. One of the most convenient features of grooop is the ability to add the app's widget on your phone.

Don't know how to add a widget? Don't know what a widget is? Read on!

For iPhone users, widgets can be accessed by swiping all the way to the left on your phone's home screen (it can be accessed from the lock screen as well). Here are displayed Siri's app suggestions and other pieces of information, like the weather or your upcoming calendar entries.


It only takes one simple step to add the grooop widget! Find the "Edit" button at the bottom of the widget screen and press it — you can add grooop and move it to the top of your accessible apps, like I've done in the picture to the right.

What's so great about adding the widget?

When the grooop widget is on your phone, you can update your status just by swiping left, even from your locked phone screen. In the case of an emergency, you can send an alert to your grooop asap!

Download the widget today and keep your grooop up to speed for the rest of the weekend. Also, don't forget to check the App Store for regular updates that will make using grooop even better!
