You may have noticed over the past several months that some of the social features that were once a part of the free Zello app are now gone — and you may be wondering why.
In 2019 we shifted our focus from social media to communication utility, with an emphasis on frontline workers and their communities. This has meant that some of the social features previously implemented in the app no longer supported our core mission. We have been working to remove these features to simplify the software and focus on building the world's best walkie talkie app, delivering crystal clear, highly reliable voice communication to the people who need it most.
Here are a few other items we’re currently working on to help support our adjusted goals and create a more reliable app that delivers an excellent communication experience, every time.
We understand that not everybody will be happy with these changes but firmly believe they are necessary. We’re excited to continue working to deliver fast, secure, reliable, and easy to use push-to-talk service for individuals and organizations of all sizes.
