If you want to install and use the Zello Walkie Talkie app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Zello Walkie Talkie in the search bar and press Search. Click on Zello Walkie Talkie application icon. A window of Zello Walkie Talkie on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Super cool Walkie Talkies app that is spot on

    By Storm view
    Hi we have used an assortment of walkie talkies/ preps for work going on 32 years now also we use them for keeping in contact with our family and with 4 kids who love to pretend they are cops and robbers talking on the phone like they are Motorola preps. Very cool. So Zello is the coolest application this side of the Mississippi River. I can not speak to the inner working of Zello or how secure it is. Seriously I am sure it has some draw backs in the privacy area but if this is of serious concern they offer a commercial version that is $6.00 a month per phone and all two way goes through a DES 256 encryption but you pay for that. So if your not discussing the movement of “high value clients “ for executive protection ect. then this program gives you outstanding performance for very little visible intrusion. I have a iPhone 7 with latest IOS and the program ran perfectly from the start on both of our phone. Not a single glitch thus far. Very easy to set up and use. So if your looking for an easy walkie talkie application that work great then Zello is for you. For what it’s worth I am not compensated in any way by Zello or Apple. Remember helping some one in need is helping Jesus Him self. God Bless and God Bless America!
  • Can I use it while playing music?

    By Turpe turp
    My team uses Zello at work (can’t say what I do). I usually use the Zello app on my city issues phone (windows phone) but the windows version is horribly outdated, and can’t be updated. I would like to use my iPhone app because I prefer these features, but my issue is that I also plug my iPhone into the USB port on my patrol car to listen to my music. I had issues while doing this. Sometimes Zello broadcasts my music on the channel. Sometimes the music simply pauses during radio traffic. I’d like to be able to play music via usb over the car speakers, and hear the Zello communication over my phone’s speaker. Is there anyway to adjust these settings?
  • Needs work

    By abdesignoriginal
    They need to do a better job really /pushing/ the fact that you need WiFi. Everyone who told me about this app said its perfect for when the power goes out and cellphone towers are down and you can’t communicate with the outside world. That is when WiFi is down so uhhhh yeah. Very frustrating. I was just in Hurricane Florence and then Hurricane Matthew. Florence I thought it was just a glitch but then it also didn’t work during Michael so I just am very upset because that’s when I need it most 🙃 and when you click help, instead of taking you to like an FAQ page or something, it takes you to a website, which also needs internet 🙃 But outside of internet issues, the app is great. It really is like a walkie talkie for your phone and the basic UI is great.
  • Good but needs work

    By jlthorpe-C354
    I’ve been testing then using Zello for my search and rescue team for over 8 months now. I also use a Motorola XTS-5000 and a sitecast RF Box along with computer to patch our trunked 800mhz radio system to our Zello channels. I love the app and have tweaked the gateway to provide amazing audio and reliability in both directions. My only issue is this. Sometimes instead of passing audio in real time, the app stops passing audio and starts to store it on the phone. Then I have to go back and replay the audio. In our business this could be dangerous for the user. We won’t use it for mission critical ops without our users being trained on the passing audio issue. I hope this address at some point. All of our users are IOS.

  • Not good for iOS.

    By Jinxsterr2000
    I’m using a brand new iPhone XS Max , My wife has the same kind of phone and I encounter the same problems on her phone and mine , so I know it’s not a unique problem with my phone . There is no option to turn on/off background app refresh. Once your iPhone auto-locks Zello disconnects. So you need to keep your phone unlocked at all times in order to use Zello. But then when I close Zello (app is no longer running) suddenly a few hours later incoming messages will begin playing through the speakerphone all on its own even with screen locked and phone is not in use , even though Zello is not running and is completely closed , makes zero sense . Zello focuses on android phones and ignores iPhone users problems, if you have an Android you will be happy, but if you have an iPhone you should look elsewhere for a similar app. These issues I mentioned are only a couple of the many many other problems I constantly have on Zello. Perhaps the worst issue which I’ve had for over 2 years and they still haven’t fixed is incoming messages will drop the audio after 2-4 seconds and the rest of the incoming message shows they are talking but you hear nothing, then if you go to history to relay what they said the 30+ second long message only replays the 2-4 seconds that you heard. It’s not an issue with internet connectivity becuase I used WiFi and cellular data, and it happens on other people iPhones as well. The only reason I don’t stop using Zello is because my father has a CB radio channel that I try to support. But it’s very aggravating to wake up in the middle of the night to people talking through my phone even tho the app is not even running , it’s very suspicious as to how an app can run even though it’s completely closed. Please consider supporting us iPhone users and give us a background refresh option and stop allowing Zello to mysterious operate while closed.
