Zello Alternatives

As Zello's functionality works more similarly to a walkie-talkie than other voice communication apps, emphasizing push-to-talk and call and response style communication in comparison to other voice chat client alternatives.

Though Zello is available on both the App Store and Google Play Store as well as Windows, other alternatives that support Mac, Linux, and the web might cater more to your needs depending on how much flexibility you require in your voice calling solution.

Zello alternatives are mainly Group Chat Apps but may also be Instant Messengers or Encrypted Chat Apps. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Zello.
