I love the app, but it's gotten bad. Whoever is making updates needs to be fired asap! It's glitching my phone.. I almost overslept and missed my alarm because the alarm wasn't ringing(smart watch woke me up..)because of zello. For some reason, the app keeps disabling my phones speaker... How do I know? I force stop the app, and suddenly, my alarm and sound work.. Not to mention all the Bluetooth and connectivity problems. This thing has developed over the past 3 months. Please fix this..

I've would pay (once, no subscription) for a version that doesn't have constant issues. But for the last few years I have often had to exit zello, or turn on and off airplane mode just to get messages to send -with several different phones over the years. And now, within the last month or so, zello completely disconnects after probably 30 seconds of my phone being locked, so I miss messages. Support doesn't respond to emails. Makes me very hesitant ever to spend on this app.

It's good, but that would be cool if there was a button where when you're outside the app you can press and send the message to the person you were talking to. Another nice feature would be having the voices not over lap or interrupt each other if you are talking to one person separately then your other friend's voice comes in lol. Also, is there a way to have history saved temporarily? Like delete the data used after one or two days so I can still save it but not use my memory if I forget.

You can create a widget on the homescreen to talk to a person without opening the app. You can also buy wireless hardware buttons. If you set Status to "Solo" you will prevent the overlap from other Contacts and Channels.They are muted and audio is sent to History. To delete History, go to Options--History. Email support@zello.com for more info
