Zello Local feature first introduced this June never became popular so was pulled to simplify the app.
Many found the feature and a few started local conversations. But even with hundreds of nearby Zello users listening, the conversations seldom lived on.
Zello is anonymous and only used approximate location, yet many users worried about their security. Maybe they worried because our live voice is uniquely authentic. Of course that’s what makes Zello special.
Live public and private voice channels remain popular and we’ll keep trying new ideas to make Zello a better place to keep and make friends.
