Welcome to the future of messaging. BuzzBell is the only messaging app that can break through Silent Mode with urgent messages and calls to ensure they are read and answered immediately. Enjoy the unique peace of mind created by stepping away from your phone knowing you can still be reached by your trusted contacts when it matters.

BuzzBell empowers you to set boundaries. Only your approved contacts can communicate with you on BuzzBell. After creating an account, invite your contacts to BuzzBell to start the conversation. BuzzBell can be used for all conversations, but when it’s urgent, use the BUZZ or BELL feature to amplify your message or call so that it’s noticed immediately, even if the recipient’s phone is switched to Silent Mode. First, we convert the text message to a text-to-voice VoIP internet call that allows them to receive the message even when not otherwise capable of launching the app (ie, when driving). If the VoIP text-to-voice call is unanswered, then a unique and continuous BUZZ (audible vibration) or BELL (ringtone) notification is sent to their phone ensuring that you get their attention. Both the BUZZ vibration and the BELL tone continuously plays until the receiver opens the App. When it's not time-sensitive and you don’t use the BUZZ or BELL feature, they’ll simply receive the message or call with a standard notification.

BuzzBell is the only messaging platform that offers you peace of mind. It’s not always easy to relax and switch to Silent Mode – sometimes it feels like you’ll miss something important, whether that be good news or bad, if you’re not always available online. With BuzzBell, you can trust that you’ll still get the message or call when it really matters, and that your urgent calls and messages will stand out in return. Share photos, videos, GIFs and hyperlinks. Enjoy sending voice messages with playback speed controls. Mark your messages as unread to give yourself a reminder to respond later and schedule messages to send in the future while the message is top of mind.

When you want to completely disconnect, toggle off BUZZBELL notifications in your Settings located under the Menu Tab. While toggled off, BUZZ and BELL bypass alerts will not audibly play to protect your quiet time. When you’re ready to receive audible bypass alerts again, simply toggle BUZZBELL notifications back on. You can also toggle off standard and BUZZBELL notifications on a chat by chat basis. With BuzzBell, you are in control.

BuzzBell follows all iOS guidelines. Therefore, we do not affect Do Not Disturb Mode. If you have Do Not Disturb enabled, BUZZBELL alerts will not play.

We value your privacy. All messages are protected with a double layer of end-to-end encryption ensuring your conversations will never be accessed by anyone else. Also, your personal data and information will never be shared with any advertisers. When you share your location with a contact on BuzzBell, they’re the only ones who can see it.

Enjoy BuzzBell for FREE or upgrade to Premium for the best user experience. Select from 20 exclusive BELL tones for your overall sound and set BELL tones per chat. Plus, enjoy an ad-free experience, unlimited amount of pinned chats and future customizations.

Improve your peace of mind and reduce messaging anxiety. Download BuzzBell today!

Best way to reach someone urgently

I love this app so much! Whether it’s an emergency or I have super exciting news to share with my loved ones, BuzzBell is my go-to app! Almost everyone I know has their phone set to silent and I used to get so frustrated and/or anxious if I was in a critical situation and needed help ASAP, but they wouldn’t call me back for hours as they missed my calls and messages. I no longer experience that issue with BuzzBell! My important messages and calls rise above and cut through all other notifications and I reach my loved ones when I need them most and vice versa! It’s a crazy, strange world that keeps getting crazier and scarier. I genuinely think everyone could benefit from this app!!

Reach your family & friends instantly!

My daughter moved across the country for work and we barely talked as her phone is always on silent so she would often miss my calls and messages. She told me to download BuzzBell and ever since, we've communicated so much better! We send each other Buzz and Bell messages when we need to get a hold of each other and call and video call each other too! It's so much faster and better than regular text and calls. We added the rest of our family and friends and everyone loves using it! I recommend!

Peace of mind for both of us

It’s really nice to finally have an option for my older parents to be able to reach me, especially at night, without getting spam calls or non-urgent notifications while I’m asleep. This solves a concern they’ve had for a long time about reaching me in medical emergencies, and still lets me disconnect from screens in the evenings.
