Offline messages support

By Alexey Gavrilov on March 18, 2012

In the most recent updates of Zello for Android (v. 1.23) and BlackBerry (v 1.21) clients we added experimental support for offline messages. Now when someone is off the coverage or doesn’t have the app currently running, you still can send them a message (if they run the latest Zello).

The contacts capable of receiving offline messages will show as ‘Standby‘ in your list with a green circle status icon. The messages sent to such contacts are delivered as soon as the contact returns online.

Let us know what you think and don’t forget to tell you friends to update their Zello!

P.S. We are working to enable this feature in Windows and bring it to Zello Cloud. Upcoming Zello for iPhone will support offline messages too including push notifications about new messages.

  3. @phil To take advantage of this feature your contacts have to use the latest version of the app as well.

  4. I’ve just noticed that on Iphone and Android versions, when you completly close Zello, and someone talks to you, the app will bring an icon or something like that to let the user know they received a call. That is not happening on BB (at least not on the BB9810 OS7.0). It could be useful because we can be alerted when we don’t want to have the app open and consuming battery.
