Ratings and Reviews
Zello saved my Coachella camping group!
I direct a caravan of 15 cars from a superstore parking lot to the Coachella camp grounds each year. It’s a challenge as there are many traffic lights that can split up the group and a few turns. Thanks to this app I was quickly able to alert 2 cars that got off I-10 at the wrong exit and they were quickly able to rejoin our group. (no one fessed up to it 😝) We also found it handy during security check as the group is forced to split up a bit. We would have lost another car during group meetup too; the verbal communications made my instructions clear enough for my friend to disobey an ignorant traffic directors orders, escaping with them yelling in the background and successfully rejoining our group (don’t try this at home, kids). We didn’t use it much during the fest as the group has other means of chat. We’ll definitely use it again in future years!

This is exactly what Zello is perfect for - thanks for your caravan story! Just wondering what you used during the fest instead and why. In addition to voice, Zello has other standard chat features (texting, image and location sharing, call alerts)
Lots of fun
I have never rated an app but this one brings so many laughs with the kids. I downloaded thinking I could use even if offline for emergencies. That is the only reason I took one star. In the event internet and cell towers are down its still not a practical way to give, and get imported information. However I have one daughter that does not live at home and one that stays hid in her room. With this app it’s like we are all back in the same room cutting up and they actually enjoy talking as a family on here. So for family fun , it’s great! And for the child that is not old enough for a cell phone yet but can watch themselves a few hours , it’s a nice way to keep in contact bc god knows he does not know how to answer a house phone . The only thing I would like to see is it work offline for true emergencies.
Thank you !!!
After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico was left in total devastation. Communications were pretty much nonexistent. Not knowing the well being of family and friends was a extremely agonizing. This app was one of the few means we had to communicate with the disaster stricken island and our families and friends. We were able to relay calls and messages stateside for other folks trying to find out about their family members too. I can tell you that it worked perfect!! I can’t thank you guys enough. I highly encourage everyone to get this to chat with family and friends and have it as a backup means of communications. This app with always be part my phone for the next “Just in Case”
