Zello, Push to talk app, Walkie-talkie application

Good news for Windows Phone users, as we have just been informed that Zello push to talk is currently being planned for development on Microsoft’s latest mobile platform version.

Zello CEO Bill Moore has confirmed this information with us, but unfortunately there is not yet an ETA for when the application will begin development, so obviously a release date is out of the question.

Zello was initially released in April, 2012 and currently has over 35 million users worldwide. The application is also available for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and web browsers. The application is similar to Voxer and Heytell, but has a unique “channel” feature that turns it into a kind of app-based, wide-reaching CB radio or walkie-talkie, allowing up to a whopping 300 participants to group chat in real-time.

The app also has a Zello Work version for Enterprise users, which would also be a perfect fit for business customers who are utilizing Windows Phones in their primary work place.

We’ll be publishing a review of Zello in the near future and will go into more details regarding its functionality then. We’ll also keep everyone informed of any further developments. Have you used Zello yet?
