The Zello Walkie Talkie app is quickly becoming the one to one, and one to many, secure communications app for protestors around the world. That’s because Zello (not to be confused with Zillow) is secure, light weight, available in many languages, works over 3G, GPRS, Edge, and wifi, and it’s free. There are versions for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and PC. It’s available in Chinese, Czech, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Bulgarian, Dutch, Hebrew, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese and Swedish.

So it is a perfect way to coordinate uprisings, demonstrations, and protests. In fact, maybe too perfect, causing Venezuela to block the app, as demonstrators turned to Zello as the administration clamped down on the Internet.


The Zello Walkie Talkie app also supports up to 600 users per channel, making it an ideal vector for leaders to talk to their groups.

This is almost certainly why Zello was the number one downloaded app, for both iPhone and Android, in Ukraine last week. And why there were over 150,000 downloads in Venezuela in one 24-hour period this week.

Zello basically works like any walke talkie. If you remember those Nextel phones that service people used to carry around that also had a walkie talkie button, then you get the gist of Zello.

zello walkie talkie app features

In addition to being lightweight, easy to use, and available on nearly all platforms (and free), Zello has a few other features, including saving your history, so that you can “replay your conversations whenever you want.” Of course, you may want to disable this ‘feature’ if you are engaging in overthrowing a regime, as it would be damning evidence if you are caught.

 

But perhaps the most critical features that make Zello ideal for these purposes is that it is secure, and that it is available in so many languages. In fact, Zello is available in the following languages for the following OSs:

iOS: Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Hebrew, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Android: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Bulgarian, Galician, Hebrew, Indonesian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish and Spanish.

Windows: Chinese, Czech, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Bulgarian, Dutch, Hebrew, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese and Swedish.

BlackBerry: Chinese, English, Russian, Bulgarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.

All that said, if you are in a country where the app could be blocked, you will want to download and install it sooner rather than later.
