Best app ever created!

Zello goes above and beyond what you think is possible with an app, connecting people from all around the world & upholding their rights to free speech whilst making the interface simple for beginners Zello is full of features such as “channel” creation (you make a channel, set the rules, invite your friends) “conversation” creation, (slightly different to channels as the invite is usually auto accepted), you can search through thousands of channels, or add one of the channels from the trending list, add friends directly and have more private chats or just listen on the side. Zello can save all the chat history for you whilst your status is set to busy & you can play them all in one chunk when you want to like a global digital radio talk show, Zello has voting features and some users can become moderators or administrators of other people’s channels or set mods and admins for their own. Zello is the number 1 social speaking and listening app but it is also useful in emergency situations or just as a way to maybe find new friends or to get to know the ones you have more, with subjects ranging from every possibility imaginable & even radar for users of the paid service “Zello work” Zello is the number 1 communication app. “Key up!” - Zello slang for “getting the button”

Great app we use it all the time to contact each other while we work. Watch the rules on some pages they draw you in and break them against you and block you. They only block if you start to win against them which shows they've lost.

A perfect app ruined by the developers

Zello at one point was huge and still has the ability to be a fantastic app. However, the removal of trending menus to easily identify channels which are live and active is no longer a option. Each and every channel has nobody active, it’s too difficult to work out how to find exciting groups and you have to use key words which for a new user you would now. This boils down to the fact you set up a channel and unless you can physically bring people to your group from another app or real life, new users on Zello will find it near impossible to find you. The app is now just a shell to what it once was. Trying to get new people to join channels is to difficult. So now you have channels which are no longer active. The interface & options on Zello is complicated for new users with the lack of option to live video stream is still not available. I feel the developers are reluctant to make any changes and sadly they are not moving along with the times, they are known to ignore advice and feedback. I cannot see the app moving forward until new fresh developers or owners take over.
