Have you ever found yourself trapped in a group text message thread that you desperately wanted to escape? Until now, there was no way to get out of a situation like that without blocking your contacts’ phone numbers, but a new Android app called GroupXit is here to save the day. GroupXit pulls the text message threads you’re a part of from your native messaging app. You can then tell GroupXit if you want to leave a particular thread altogether, or if there are certain people you want to silence in a particular chat. Don’t be afraid of missing out on a key message, either – GroupXit lets you set alerts if certain keywords are mentioned. The team is currently working on an iOS version, but GroupXit is – for now – only available for Android. That version is free to download, but you’ll need to pay $2 to keep going after you’ve used the app to escape from six conversations. If you’re dying for some peace and quiet, download GroupXit from Google Play today.
