I have not been able to use it. The app is not intuitive. I did not yet notify my grat aunt that I have it by sharing, but now have no option to do anything from the front page. It shows my number and gives me an opportunity to add another number. There should be three dots on page with more actions but the only things I can do is use help (question mark) in top right, I can share, and I can add a number. None of these " let me start a VRS call.

The app is alright for incoming calls, but I'm upset that I can't call my deaf friends through wavello. I have many older deaf friends who dont use tablets/smart phones so as to contact them on other apps, such as WhatsApp. I think it crazy that I should have to wait for them to call me through wavello. I also find it silly/spinning my wheels to call them on Sorenson and tell them to call me so I can see them on Wavello. Maybe this is my view as a hearing person IDK... Responding to Miranda Wessel's post, Miranda, you are spot on (I'm a hearing person as well). I think the concept of the tool is excellent, but I feel like it's also a step back (or maybe a step off) from a fuller deaf/HOH => hearing conversation. If each party had the ability to initiate the call though whatever device that party uses (ie: a Chromebook, such as myself) it seems that that would be fuller environment for both parties. (Or, somehow add the interpreter's presence to, for example, Google Meet meetings, or Zoom meetings. All that's needed would be a means to invite an interpreter to the meeting ... perhaps by sending a "join this call" type of message to a single ID which would be a pool of interpreters. And this would totally eliminate ANY device dependence from ANY of the 3 parties. If there's a browser on a person's environment, that's the common thread for the tool I don't think your view is off at all.

Not Helpful This app says on the homepage that you can start a VRS call, but there is no way to do it. As a hearing person with many dead friends, I would live to be able to call them through VRS, and not wait for them to call me, or text them and tell them to call me.
