GroupMe has offered 50 BlackBerryCool readers the opportunity to get in on the 2.0 beta build for BlackBerry. In this latest version of GroupMe, the app features in-app chat, which will allow users to send messages over their data connection, entirely within the app and will use push notifications. Also, the new app has a cleaner UI, and GroupMe made improvements to overall performance.
Head over to the GroupMe blog and use the passcode “bbcool” (sans quotes) to register for the 2.0 beta. Remember, GroupMe is only available for US residents right now.
Also, here’s a little tip for those in the beta: choose “Push” mode for background notifications, or “SMS” mode to use less battery life.
