If you miss the days of Nextel and Walkie-Talkies - check out Zello!
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 21, 2014
“Zello” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which features the latest and coolest mobile applications on the iOS, Android, and Windows markets. Andrew Tropeano, a mobile technology expert and host of NewsWatch, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how it turns a phone into a walkie-talkie for live chats.
For consumers who want to bring the walkie-talkie concept back to their phone but with a much friendlier user interface, Zello is available for free on iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry.
Once it’s installed, users can push the talk button and chat live with their friends. Users can also join public chats with people from around the world or create private channels with their friends that are password protected. It’s a much more personal and quicker experience than texting, and it’s more fun and social.
To use it, users open up the app then see who is online and available. If a user wants to connect, tap the name or the group icon and start chatting. The person on the other end will receive the “chat” immediately or they can hear the message later when they’re online. However, it’s mostly meant for live conversation – which is different from other voice mail applications.
Zello works across platforms, so it’s not just iPhone to iPhone, or Android to Android. It’s available for iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry devices. There’s also a paid version for organizations that’s been popular in various industries.
