You may ask yourself, “why should I use Zello now that I can send voice messages from my iPhone? You may also wonder how Zello is different from all those other voice messaging apps out there, such as Whatsapp, WeChat, Viber, etc. Simply put, Zello is a true push-to-talk (PTT) walkie-talkie app, while other apps use recorded messages.
Read on to learn why this matters and other reasons for using Zello for voice communications instead of iMessage or other apps with voice messaging:
With iMessage, you can’t talk to your friends who have Android or Windows Phone. You can only talk to other iOS users.
There is no way to play back a history of your iMessages or share them with other users. Zello is the only PTT app that offers a channel feature where you can talk to and meet new people across the world.
Zello uses Codec Opus. Compare the sound quality with recorded messaging apps, and you will hear the difference.
Zello will never charge you, post ads, or spam you and your friends.
Zello offers status and notification settings you can customize to avoid being disturbed, and missed messages can be saved to history.
