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!

Developer Response ,

This is exactly what Zello is perfect for - thanks for your caravan story! Just wondering what you used during the fest instead and why. In addition to voice, Zello has other standard chat features (texting, image and location sharing, call alerts)

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.
