Greatest app I’ve ever discovered on my phone since Nextel
So this is app is so much better than any other 2 way radio app that I tried, I looked everywhere for a direct connect chat and Zello has it so far and it replaces the old Nextel direct connect so if you ever need anything such as at work where a customer needs help or if you need help with anything from your boss you can just radio him right away without having to yell out his name or having to make a phone call to him. I just downloaded this app yesterday and I’ve been really having fun with it since it is a permanent replacement to Nextel it provides that chirp that is heard on older Motorola cb and 2 way radios and was heard on all Nextel phones. One thing I would like to see in the future for a slight improvement is the ability to use hearing aids for the deaf and the old people who have trouble hearing so they can hear their clear message in their message history. Otherwise an excellent app and I highly recommend it to anyone, it’s free and also the Zello free trial has no credit card requirements when they say it’s a free trial they really mean it and they don’t believe in asking for your credit card information for your 14 day free trial because they believe other apps ask for credit card information for a 14 day free trial and they don’t even believe in such nonsense. So thanks Zello for providing us legitimate 14 day free trials

So helpful while I recover from surgery!
I recently had meniscal repair surgery and have limited mobility while I recover. At first when I needed something I’d either have to yell for my partner or call him on his phone. It occurred to me there had to be some kind of walkie talkie app, but I had no idea there would be a free one. This honestly works amazingly for what we need it for. If he’s downstairs and I need something else before he comes up I can just push the button and talk. It also has a little alert/alarm feature you can press before talking to make sure the person is available. As an added bonus, this app works great with earbuds/airpods. My partner works from home and he’s often listening to music with them, so he often can’t hear me even if I’m trying to talk to him from the next room. I might still use this even after I’m fully recovered instead of trying to get his attention while he’s listening.

Change how you view messages
Please change when someone leaves you a walkie talkie message and how you view it. Now you have to go to the little blue dot to listen. It would be great if you could have a message that stays on the home screen should you miss the original message and then you just press it to listen while it is displayed on the home screen. HeyTell is an app that has this as a feature. I have turned on a lot of people to this app but all don’t like how you have to go to the blue dot to listen. Again if you miss the walkie talkie message it should be in the home screen and then just hit the message to listen...much easier....please change this and this would make it great. Update.......so now you can’t can send a walkie talkie message and it stays on the screen but fir how long? Please update app so it stays on your phone screen until you listen to it. Nobody knows once it goes to the blue dot to listen to message. Again The HeyTell app leaves it on your phone screen until you listen to the message. Change that and this app will be excellent. Sometimes a leave a walkie talkie message and after so long the person never gets the message because they can’t see it.

Great app! 📣🚨
This is a great app because it’s like a phone call but it’s not. It’s great to have a conversation without making a call. When there is no signal the app doesn’t work which is the only bad thing if you want to use it in an emergency (like getting lost during a hike or driving where there is no signal/service). But besides that, this is a really good app. Also, the feature in which you can pick if you’re messages are saved or deleted every few days is just perfect. At the same time, I love the fact that messages auto play when you’re not on the app because like I said in an emergency it becomes very useful. By the way, even if it’s not an emergency I like the fact the messages auto play and that you can adjust the settings to your personal preferences. Again, the only thing I would change is the fact that you can’t send voice messages when you’re phone doesn’t have wifi, service, or signal. Therefore, I give it 4 out 5 stars. But overall its a great app, I recommend it.

Zello saved my Coachella camping group!
I direct a caravan of 15 cars from a superstore parking lot to the Coachella camp grounds each year. It’s a challenge as there are many traffic lights that can split up the group and a few turns. Thanks to this app I was quickly able to alert 2 cars that got off I-10 at the wrong exit and they were quickly able to rejoin our group. (no one fessed up to it 😝) We also found it handy during security check as the group is forced to split up a bit. We would have lost another car during group meetup too; the verbal communications made my instructions clear enough for my friend to disobey an ignorant traffic directors orders, escaping with them yelling in the background and successfully rejoining our group (don’t try this at home, kids). We didn’t use it much during the fest as the group has other means of chat. We’ll definitely use it again in future years!

Accessibility
Compleatly steering away from voiceover This was the go too app when blind users wanted a app to chat that was fully accessible all the way threw Now the voiceover users can barely use to do anything 1 we can’t add people to our contacts because there is no add button when we click on any 1’s profile Same with the channels we can’t add any Channel because there’s no add button when we Serch for them so the only way to get in to them is being invited  2 we can’t send any 1 in our contacts a alert because there’s no send button or anything for us to press and send and to top it off there’s no way to back out of it either so we have to close the app and then open it again to try to do anything else 3 there’s no way to cancel or to back out or save or update our profile so if we tap on profile for anything again we have to close the app and then open it again to do anything else Also can’t update our about or our name because when we tap on 1 it just jump to something else or doesn’t open the text field so we can change our name or our about info Same with options no back, save, done or update button so if we want to change any settings when we’ve made changes we 1 more time have to close the app and open it get to anything else Please fix and make accessible for us blind voiceover users

Blind man walking
I lost my sight a little over a year ago and I find this app a tremendous help. I’ve used the voice recognition on my phone but it makes so many mistakes, I had my wife look for a walkie-talkie app and she found this one. Well I can honestly say it’s such a help to a blind person. We can’t dial the phone because we can’t see the numbers but with this app I push one button and I can talk to my wife, I’ve asked friends to download it so I can speak with them, some have some haven’t. But it’s all good. I can still answer my phone with air pods 👍🏻 Thank you so much for this app, it’s made a blind man’s life a lot easier. And NO I didn’t write this review 😂 I dictated it. I know someone out there who reads this will say if he’s blind how did he write the review. I thank my wife for all of her help and for writing this and a huge thank you to Zello.

Solid with flaws
When this app works it’s amazing. Super clear audio and solid coverage if you have LTE. One problem is that the app tends to go into background mode and when that happens you can’t hear people calling you, you only get a visual notification. If you have your device in your hand all the time it works fine but if it’s on your belt you’ll miss calls. The app itself can be a little convoluted and hard to follow. Something as simple as approving someone for a channel can take five minutes because it’s not obvious how to do it. In the end, Zello is the leader because the alternatives are just not that good. Zello IS good but there is still room for improvement.

Great for work...but hardware needed
this app is absolutely fantastic. I work in the Security industry and it’s great for staying in touch with other officers. I also love that each time something is set over the radio, it is time stamped and logged. So we can go back and pull up our audio to see what times things occurred. The only drawback is that May third-party piece of hardware is needed to use this realistically. Having to grab the phone unlock it, then open the app and push the button to talk gets tedious. There are very few microphones for PTT, that work with iOS. It would be fantastic if Zello would incorporate their app into Apple Watch. There would be so many people that would find that useful. Zello, if you are a developer and reading this, please please please invest in expanding into Apple Watch. I think the subscriber growth alone will justify the expense. If Apple Watch was an option, I would’ve rated a five.

Hurricane Ian 2022, I am disappointed I you
Let me just start off by saying that it does and does not work. I mean by this is that I had family in Kissimmee that have this app and we were communicating just fine. Mind you let me say that my family Kissimmee during the hurricane did that really suffer much, they didn’t lose power or water. On the other hand, me being in Davenport Haines city region, I ended up losing power for a couple of days. Even though I did not have power, it worked with my family in Kissimmee. I also have my husband in North Fort Myers. He ended up losing power water and a car due to the storm over there. It was way worse. He also had this app before he lost his power and cell service. The app was working fine. After he lost his cell service, it didn’t work at all. I had no way to communicate with him. It is very frustrating and I was very worried I had high hopes for the app, but kind of led me disappointed.

Does not stream audio over Bluetooth.
It does not stream audio over Bluetooth. No matter what settings I set in the app it refuses to play back over Bluetooth. If I have to listen to voice messages over the iPhones speaker I would not be able to hear it clearly. I am using a Bluetooth enabled hearing aid. It should act similar to how air pods works (I could be wrong on this). If it’s streamed over Bluetooth I should be able to use ios16s live caption feature and also hear it 2-3x more clearly directly thru the hearing aid. Can I be directed on how to get this app to play audio messages over Bluetooth only? Whenever I tried to use the echo test bot it turns red while recording then it turns green like it maybe sending audio back but I heard nothing. I tried turning it up and it does sound faint prob because it coming in over the iPhones built in speaker which I don’t want.

Lots of fun
I have never rated an app but this one brings so many laughs with the kids. I downloaded thinking I could use even if offline for emergencies. That is the only reason I took one star. In the event internet and cell towers are down its still not a practical way to give, and get imported information. However I have one daughter that does not live at home and one that stays hid in her room. With this app it’s like we are all back in the same room cutting up and they actually enjoy talking as a family on here. So for family fun , it’s great! And for the child that is not old enough for a cell phone yet but can watch themselves a few hours , it’s a nice way to keep in contact bc god knows he does not know how to answer a house phone . The only thing I would like to see is it work offline for true emergencies.

Super cool Walkie Talkies app that is spot on
Hi we have used an assortment of walkie talkies/ preps for work going on 32 years now also we use them for keeping in contact with our family and with 4 kids who love to pretend they are cops and robbers talking on the phone like they are Motorola preps. Very cool. So Zello is the coolest application this side of the Mississippi River. I can not speak to the inner working of Zello or how secure it is. Seriously I am sure it has some draw backs in the privacy area but if this is of serious concern they offer a commercial version that is $6.00 a month per phone and all two way goes through a DES 256 encryption but you pay for that. So if your not discussing the movement of “high value clients “ for executive protection ect. then this program gives you outstanding performance for very little visible intrusion. I have a iPhone 7 with latest IOS and the program ran perfectly from the start on both of our phone. Not a single glitch thus far. Very easy to set up and use. So if your looking for an easy walkie talkie application that work great then Zello is for you. For what it’s worth I am not compensated in any way by Zello or Apple. Remember helping some one in need is helping Jesus Him self. God Bless and God Bless America!

Needless changes
This may seem trivial but for no apparent reason the dev changed the logo/icon which now doesn't have the "Z" as a part of it. The new icon makes no sense, not quickly drawing the eye to Zello, because it is just an abstract design, again making no sense and changed for no good reason other than for the sake of change itself. And that is never a good, well-founded, valid reason for doing anything. Just go back to the previous, attractive icon and leave well enough alone. I have skipped the latest update, with the new icon, hoping you will change it back before I update. Otherwise, it's a good, useful app which comes in handy sometimes. What does the new design even mean, anyway? How does one get "Zello" or even a "Z" out of that hot mess? Have you ever heard the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" ?

Thank you !!!
After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico was left in total devastation. Communications were pretty much nonexistent. Not knowing the well being of family and friends was a extremely agonizing. This app was one of the few means we had to communicate with the disaster stricken island and our families and friends. We were able to relay calls and messages stateside for other folks trying to find out about their family members too. I can tell you that it worked perfect!! I can’t thank you guys enough. I highly encourage everyone to get this to chat with family and friends and have it as a backup means of communications. This app with always be part my phone for the next “Just in Case” Thank you!!!

Didn’t maintain the connection
I’m not impressed. It worked only until I closed the app. When I reopen it later to use, all of my previously established contacts have a status that says “Request Sent.” I tried to resend the request just to see if that would work but the receiver never gets the request, leaving me unable to communicate with them even though we’ve already communicated via the app. I deleted then readded the contacts but nothing worked. This app was fun while it lasted but it wasn’t worth the trouble. We downloaded it to save time on texting, but it was way more time consuming just trying to get it to work consistently.

Can I use it while playing music?
My team uses Zello at work (can’t say what I do). I usually use the Zello app on my city issues phone (windows phone) but the windows version is horribly outdated, and can’t be updated. I would like to use my iPhone app because I prefer these features, but my issue is that I also plug my iPhone into the USB port on my patrol car to listen to my music. I had issues while doing this. Sometimes Zello broadcasts my music on the channel. Sometimes the music simply pauses during radio traffic. I’d like to be able to play music via usb over the car speakers, and hear the Zello communication over my phone’s speaker. Is there anyway to adjust these settings?

Wonderful app but needs a little bit of improvement
This is a wonderful app and I use it all the time. There’s just one small improvement that it needs. I am a voiceover user and use accessibility features. Whenever I exit the app, I noticed that voiceover is very slow to respond when in this particular app and I’m not sure why. I have contacted actress abilities hotline for Apple and they have said of course to get in touch with you guys. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it with no success. Please fix the sluggish or slow issue that is happening when exiting the app. Other than that, keep up the great work.

Needs work
They need to do a better job really /pushing/ the fact that you need WiFi. Everyone who told me about this app said its perfect for when the power goes out and cellphone towers are down and you can’t communicate with the outside world. That is when WiFi is down so uhhhh yeah. Very frustrating. I was just in Hurricane Florence and then Hurricane Matthew. Florence I thought it was just a glitch but then it also didn’t work during Michael so I just am very upset because that’s when I need it most 🙃 and when you click help, instead of taking you to like an FAQ page or something, it takes you to a website, which also needs internet 🙃 But outside of internet issues, the app is great. It really is like a walkie talkie for your phone and the basic UI is great.

Best PTT app!
I'm a radio geek and this app turned out to work better than expected. I still prefer traditional 2-way radios from Motorola and Midland. But what makes Zello a great alternative is you don't have to worry about range, FCC licensing, or compatible radios. Best of all, it has end-to-end encryption! You can also join groups and talk to people all over the world! The response time for broadcasts is nearly instant too. Almost like a real 2-way radio. If you want excellent PTT service with lots of features and/or want an extra tool for emergency preparation, you really should try Zello. As a radio geek, I love it!

The emperor card
Watch out for special interest users. The Emperor Card likes to cyber stalk people and expose them because of his own narcissistic insecurities. So not reveal your full first and last name to this user unless you’re prepared to be harassed. It doesn’t matter if you do anything to him or not, he will invent a scenario in which you spy on him for other users and run with it. He also saved audios and pictures and has files saved on his computer for all of it. Obsessed and dangerous but he’s only found in the banter and roasting rooms. It’s just an app, don’t let it consume you like this guy.

My opinion
I like this app alot I got to make a lot of friends on it also i can keep contact with my family and friends . What I wish you bring back to zello is the fact we can make arabic users because not everyone knows how to read english users and alot of arabic people use this app and the idea of using volume up and down to catch a mic cause alot of people have a problem getting a mic from the screen also its annoying pressing mic from the screen when theres more then 15 people in a channel it used to be better in 2012, 2013 ,2014 & 2015 when we could do that , people now get annoyed from pressing mics from the screen and end up leaving . Thanks.

Good but needs work
I’ve been testing then using Zello for my search and rescue team for over 8 months now. I also use a Motorola XTS-5000 and a sitecast RF Box along with computer to patch our trunked 800mhz radio system to our Zello channels. I love the app and have tweaked the gateway to provide amazing audio and reliability in both directions. My only issue is this. Sometimes instead of passing audio in real time, the app stops passing audio and starts to store it on the phone. Then I have to go back and replay the audio. In our business this could be dangerous for the user. We won’t use it for mission critical ops without our users being trained on the passing audio issue. I hope this address at some point. All of our users are IOS.

Need improvement + bug fixes
I’m new on this app and my friends who are thousands of miles apart love the instant messaging voice app. However, this unfortunately have a lot of bugs, my friends most of the time appear as “standby” when they are not... we made sure we all have the app running in the back. Few days I’ve notice a beeping from this app when nobody has sent me a message. It just goes off and that’s pretty annoying. I’d make it work to run in Apple Watch that would be a total game changer... it’s sad you can only use it via WiFi or data, could be cool if somehow the app catches radio waves to transmit messages with contacts that are closer to you.

Used to be completely accessible with VoiceOver, isn't so much anymore.
Is a good app. But its ridiculous that you'd decrease accessibility with VoiceOver. I'm having trouble getting out of certain screens. One of for example, when I click navigation menu and select one of the screens from there, I can't get out using voiceover without force closing the app from the app switcher and opening it back up again. Same for the screen to send an alert message to someone. I can't click cancel. And the send button on that screen isn't labeled for voiceover anymore. It doesn't make any sense. The one thing about making a good quality app is not making it worse and worse with every update.

Non existent customer service
Zello wants you to get their paid service. Nothing wrong with that, except they deliberately refuse to provide support for the free app, all you have is the online faqs. I was on the phone today with a rep asking for help using group conversations. A simple question, after which I’d consider the paid version for our not for profit. I need to be able to compare features in the free vs paid before making a decision. Was flat out told that any q’s for the free app can’t be answered, support will only be offered for and if you sign up for the paid service. Guess what - was going to, but won’t be doing so now. Says a lot about a company they’re not willing to stand behind and offer FULL support to users for their product.

Won’t work without cell phone service!
This is a great app, but there are people who think this app is magical and can somehow allow them to use this app without any cell phone service PR WiFi when the towers are all destroyed during a hurricane. Can you please let people know that this is not possible so they will not have a false sense of security and depend on it? I have to fight this battle every time there’s a hurricane and explain to people why Zillo will not work if their cell phone towers are down and there is no Wi-Fi. It’s maddening.

Zello works!
I came across this app in use in a hotel that I worked at. We were all issued iPhones at the beginning of our shifts, as needed. What’s super cool is the fact that you could contact person to person if needed. No reason for housekeeping to hear that I forgot ranch dressing for room 809’s order. Conversely, you could alert multiple departments and individuals if there was an emergency. Since then, I’ve moved to a very rural area with a lot of open land. It was easy to teach my 80 year old stepfather how to use. Now, he and I can be in contact while acres apart. Super handy!

Why isn’t it showing up?
Hi! I really like this app. I think it’s cool that you can use this app as a texting and walkie talkie device. But when I tried to get my friends to get the app, they couldn’t because it wasn’t showing up or available on the App Store on their phones..I guess. I don’t know if my friends need an update or something, I’m very confused. It is a huge disappointment that I can’t talk to my friends on this app. I might as well delete it since I can’t talk to anyone. Anyway, I am hoping someone will read this and know what the problem is. In the meantime, I will be deleting this app and getting another one.

battery drainer
first, the app. the app itselfis great. however, it's drainage of battery is just crazy. fix that and it would be nearly perfect. one big issue, it's not supported on my Apple Watch🙄😒😖😢😬. ... if you could build a supported Apple Watch version that doesn't drain an abzorbidant amount of batery, battery it would gain a higher rating in my eyes. especiallyif it could run in the background like it can do on your phone. a larre large ammount amount of people got their watches to play like Dick Tracey. while I got mine for more practicle things, I got it as well thinking I could run Zello. that simply didn't happen unfortionatelyunfortunately. can you make a Zello for Apple Watch?

Wonderful when working overnights
I work for a gym chain during the 10p-6a shifts five days a week, and my overnight team prefers this over traditional walkie talkies as this allows text chat and image exchange alongside PTT (having replay capability is a huge deal for us, too, since gym music is typically loud). The one thing that’s really keeping me from rating at 5-stars is that it’s missing Apple Watch support, which is super important to the Apple using side of my team. I’m hoping to see this soon, but other than that, I love this app for personal reasons, my team loves this app because it helps us communicate better. Thank you, Zello!

Zello saved MANY lives during Hurricane Harvey
I am so thankful for Zello, I was doing water rescues with the Cajun Navy and Homeland Security and had we not had this app many animals and people would’ve went without being rescued. It was precise, it allowed us to navigate to people that were crying for help and kept us save from looters shooting. This is the #1 app you could use during a crisis and I’m so thankful for it. Thank you Zello, I’m happy to provide video of how this app saved lives. I have plenty of evidence of exactly what it did and how it helped :)

Conventionally amazing however…
It doesn’t have an Apple Watch feature:( so pitiful, because the app is so good when you want to communicate quickly without texting. I was playing hide and seek at target with my friends and was using the app to communicate. It worked really well, but drained the battery fairly fast. So I wanted to use my watch but it doesn’t have a feature for this. Hopefully they could update it with one, even though there’s a walkie talkie feature on the watch already it doesn’t include groups.

Very useful in some situations
I just wanna say that in the last 2 months, I have used this app to stay in contact with my security team and my management team so I am amazed about how this works out however the con is that I have to keep finding better spots where I can get a better signal so that I can keep communications up but I still find this app to be very useful so hopefully anyone working in emergency services can use this app in the future moving forward.

Volume button to speak
This app is lit! I really like the concept. This app is one of the coolest apps I have ever used in a long time, so congrats on making such a cool app. My one small idea I have that would make the app even better would be to simply use a volume button to toggle to speak/respond to make it be like an actual real deal walkie talkie. So that way we can answer people on the radio quicker than the way now which is having to go into the app and press and hold. Making the volume button a toggle button to respond will save time and be more cooler. Just an idea💯

You Should Add
I already wrote one review but here I am again Zillow is a great walkie-talkie PTT app I would like it if you could think about adding in a sound effect after you releast a PTT button it would be very cool and can you contact Apple and let them know to look at your descriptions on the app because so many people want it we’re on iOS you can use the volume buttons as a third-party but Apple I guess you said took it out because you don’t want them using third-party features

Awesome
This app is so Helpful, it’s really easy to use and understand, however, I just wish that it was more accessible when I’m not in the app itself. I wish that they would make it a widget that I could put in the control center so that I could access it at any time through other apps. But I do like how he will broadcast over my music in the video that I’m watching, it’s really useful just wish it could be accessed more easily. Still a five star app

As a early user this app used to be fun and inviting with a lobby of rooms to choose from to pick common interests.. now it’s all closed and everything is only with invitation and it’s terrible... you utterly destroyed this app’s capabilities by listening to crybabies who have no business on the internet anyways.. users who couldn’t handle random strangers coming into their rooms and couldn’t contain themselves when it came to banning people who where “too much” for them.. so you took away people’s ability to find open rooms? For what? To accommodate the weak? Get it together Zello.. this wasn’t just designed to be a “walkie talkie” it was open to everyone at some point..

send help
hi. so to start from the top, my grandmother is highly afraid of bad weather. so during the last hurricane (ida maybe?), she had all the family download this. fortunately, we didn’t have to use it. so I went on a phone purge, deleting the apps I didn’t need, and this was one of them (no offense). well, the next day, it came back. so I wrote it off as a glitch, and deleted it again. it came back again. this has happened 3 or 4 times, I can’t find what’s wrong with it. please help. I’m losing my mind

tremendously useless
such a huge letdown. only downloaded this app because people mept complaining about the glitches on Voxer. well, i'll take my chances. this zello app says messages are "saved" in history, but you can't actually see or listen to any of them, it only tells you the total data size of the saved messages. it's pointless to waste space "saving" messages that can't be read. though there's no need for me to complain about that since i haven't been able to actually receive any messages sent to me. So, yes, this app was a waste of my time and phone memory.

Somethings changed, and it ain’t good :(
This app has gone from one of the coolest and most useful apps I have so almost completely unusable. -In the car (and only on Zello), it randomly switches between the iPhone and the car BT system. When talking I have absolutely no idea if I’m talking to the phone or the car speakerphone. And it will likely change the next time I press the button, but maybe not -Likewise with the receive.. the person I’m talking to may appear on the phone or the car. It’s totally random -MOST IF THE TIME now I get the ‘not available’ beep, meaning the person I was talking to is not available, but again that’s a random crap shoot.. sometimes that’s real, and others they answer me back as normal. Totally random.. These are recent developments over the last few months, and the people I talk to on Zello are all reporting similar issues back. I sent a note regarding all of the above to the Zello Support address and received no response, so I’ll try here since it appears someone actually monitors these comments. ZELLO: ARE YOU LISTENING?

Bring back channel browse.
Not sure what happened. It’s been a good few years since I used this app. Used to be able to view/browse/explore new or different channels. Now I need to know a name of a channel to find it. So if your new and don’t know any other channels, what exactly do you search for? That limits you to only search for known channels that you are advised of by friends or families. It’s time consuming and frustrating to put in keywords to only find one or two channels so you try other words to see what else may pop up.

Zello is a very raw “product”
It always amazes me how frequently and how radically they change things up in the app. There is never a version without some serious bugs and it feels almost as if the free version of the app is just a sandbox for devs. They always change something but never announce any changes, like “oops channel search is no longer an option and by the way we ditched ratings too... but we added a super-useful (no) search bar right above the user list”. Guys come on, in the age of the Clubhouse and Telegram voice chats, your loyal user base deserves some consistency. Figure things out once and for all and implement some real features. PS: and I’m not even asking to bring back the Camo theme.

HURRICANE DLA
So my friends were saying stuff about this app on a group chat. I was not to sure about it. My mom had said things like people can hack into your phone, but no one has! I have this app on my I pad and I phone and during the hurricane when we had no internet (We live out in the country also) we would use this app. I really like it and am using it whenever we don’t have power again!

Kianna’s Review
My fiancé travels for work and right now he’s in New Orleans and I’m in PA. He is a towerhand/technician and his job is long and busy hours so we don’t get much time to text or call each other so this app is absolutely amazing and fun for us! I can’t believe how quick and easy it is! Even being so far away it’s clear and fast. We love it! U can also send pics and text 💜💚💙 Thank you to whoever created this app! My best friend and I also have a lot of fun using it!

Amazing App!
This app does wonders, didn’t expect it to be live audio notifications. This app separates its self from other Walkie apps. I work for a mom and pop Corp. And dealing with Loss Preventions made me reach out into lookin for the perfect app, and that app is Zello, it does the job well, barely any lag, it’s in real time. Got the company to use it at all retail locations, communication is much more effective. I also use this app outside of work makes everything easier.

Very Very Good....But 1 problem
Basically I love this app it’s a great app where I can connect with my family and friends. I love how you can use the voice messages instead of texting and you can text as well. But my only problem is that there is no option to make a video it’s only photos. I would really like it if you made it so we can face time each other or make videos! That would make it a bit better
