VoIP technology allows us to use the Internet to send voice messages and make phone calls over the network. Skype is one of the most popular programs of this kind but the concept of Zello is slightly different. This tool has been designed to be used like a walkie-talkie, allowing us to record and send voice messages by just pressing a button. Its PTT (push to talk) mode has been later adopted by other chat and instant messaging apps as is the case of WhatsApp.
Zello for PC: much more than a walkie-talkie
This tool isn't only limited to sending voice messages to the contacts on our list. It also offers us the possibility to join thematic channels where users from all over the world share their concerns and use it to meet new people. Therefore, here we'll be able to find channels about Christian music, online movies in HD or the craziest topics you can think of. And you'll come across users from all over the world: Spain, USA, Germany, UK...
How it works is quite simple: you only have to press a button to talk. The message is immediately sent and the recipients can listen to it whenever they want. And although this is the native app for Windows, so you don't have to download its Android APK and emulate it with Andy or BlueStacks, it syncs with the mobiles of this operating system, and also with iOS and Windows Phone. In other words, your activity on your computer will also appear on your phone.
Turn your PC into a walkie-talkie to be able to send free voice messages.

This service can be used for free but Zello also offers corporative plans. Therefore, by means of a monthly payment, you can expand your communication functions and capacities. Quite a few companies have decided to use it for internal communications, as is the case of IKEA, Cemex or Westin, making use of the Work version. For such purpose, it offers its API as well as encrypted communications to guarantee the confidentiality of its users.
