Super cool Walkie Talkies app that is spot on
Hi we have used an assortment of walkie talkies/ preps for work going on 32 years now also we use them for keeping in contact with our family and with 4 kids who love to pretend they are cops and robbers talking on the phone like they are Motorola preps. Very cool.
So Zello is the coolest application this side of the Mississippi River. I can not speak to the inner working of Zello or how secure it is. Seriously I am sure it has some draw backs in the privacy area but if this is of serious concern they offer a commercial version that is $6.00 a month per phone and all two way goes through a DES 256 encryption but you pay for that.
So if your not discussing the movement of “high value clients “ for executive protection ect. then this program gives you outstanding performance for very little visible intrusion.
I have a iPhone 7 with latest IOS and the program ran perfectly from the start on both of our phone. Not a single glitch thus far. Very easy to set up and use. So if your looking for an easy walkie talkie application that work great then Zello is for you.
For what it’s worth I am not compensated in any way by Zello or Apple.
Remember helping some one in need is helping Jesus Him self.
God Bless and God Bless America!
Can I use it while playing music?
My team uses Zello at work (can’t say what I do). I usually use the Zello app on my city issues phone (windows phone) but the windows version is horribly outdated, and can’t be updated.
I would like to use my iPhone app because I prefer these features, but my issue is that I also plug my iPhone into the USB port on my patrol car to listen to my music. I had issues while doing this.
Sometimes Zello broadcasts my music on the channel. Sometimes the music simply pauses during radio traffic.
I’d like to be able to play music via usb over the car speakers, and hear the Zello communication over my phone’s speaker. Is there anyway to adjust these settings?
Absolutely love this app works great as a secondary radio system for when we are out in the field with our security company. Would not use it for the main communication but it’s perfect to communicate between supervisors were not wanting staff to know exactly what’s going on yet. Also the feature of messaging allows us to send messages out to all of our supervisors that they can have right in front of them about missing people or people that we are looking for. Also being able to send photos is great because if you remove somebody from an event or property, you can send the picture out to all points immediately.
