You Can Now Text Groot From "Guardians of the Galaxy"

By Dave Bouressa

According to a report by, Groot, the lovable,"vocabulisticly challenged" fan-favorite tree from Marvel's latest surprise hit, Guardians of the Galaxy, can now be added to your phone's contacts for a lovely text message and have a conversation with him. However, be prepared for some not-so-engaging conversation.

Developer Ricky Robinett has developed a "chat bot" that users can text to talk to Groot, and have him respond. However, in the words of Rocket Raccoon, "Well, he don't know talking good like me and you, so his vocabulistics is limited to 'I and Am, and Groot-exclusively in that order".

The number you can text to talk to Groot is (866) 740-4531. Although this is not an "official" program from Marvel, Director of Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn, has shared it on Twitter, giving it his blessing. 

On a side note, if you haven't already seen Guardians of the Galaxy 500 times, you need to fix this. I'm sure the ushers won't mind if you text the star of the movie while the movie's playing.
