What does GC stand for?

Group chat

If you often find yourself in group chats, you might be familiar with the term GC. This slang is commonly used when somebody wants to share something through a group chat or ask someone to go through messages in a group chat.

Group chats, or GCs, can happen through various platforms. It could be a simple text message thread or through messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Discord, or Slack. Unlike Direct Messages (DMs) or one-on-one texting, GC involves more than two people exchanging messages.

GCs are often used by tight-knit groups of friends, family members, or even colleagues at work. They use GCs to share details, discuss topics, or just have a friendly chat. In case you are part of an active GC, there might be times when you would want to silence the notifications to avoid being disturbed by the continuous pings.
