Channel Broadcast Widgets

July 18, 2018

Got something really important to say? Share it with the world.

Zello now offers channel owners the opportunity to broadcast live channel conversations to anyone in the world. With just a few easy steps, you can make your push-to-talk channel conversations public and global (unless your channel is Zelect+, Premium, or password-protected).

We’ve been excited to see our users take advantage of this option within Zello, and even extend it to other media! Fibonacci Team School and Caminhoneiros PX have added their Zello channels to their websites, allowing visitors to listen in on live broadcasts of Brazilian political musings and Polish trading discussions as they browse the web. Ham Radio UK even hosts multiple channels on its site, giving visitors the opportunity to listen to a dozen conversations on a variety of topics. The ability to share any message with a larger audience is the best part of our channel broadcast widgets, and by adding it to their websites, these users have created just one more way to reach their audiences: instant voice communications.

Want to broadcast your channel? Just follow these simple steps:

Step 1. Access your account by signing in at the zello.com website.

Step 2. Select the My channels tab, find the channel you want to broadcast, and select the Edit icon to the right of the channel name. In this example, we are creating a widget for the channel named "Austin Events 2018":

 
 
Step 3. Scroll down to Channel options and enable "Allow anonymous listeners". Save your changes and Close the popup.

Anyone who’s interested can now listen to your channel from your Zello channel page! If you’re ever curious about the size of your audience, you can check it out by clicking the Channel Broadcast Widget on your channel page. Have you heard someone you really want to talk to? The widget also shows the username of the person speaking, so you can contact and initiate a conversation with that person on Zello.

Got a website? Click on the Share Channel Widget icon to display HTML code that you can use to embed the widget on your website, enhancing your website content with voice communications.
