What is Zalo?


Zalo is a free messaging app for Vietnam

In a free system, everyone has got to compete for survival, for relevance, for a lasting legacy and all. The same also is applicable in the social networking system.

Zalo is a messaging app that allows the user to chat, call and send pictures. It has been around for almost a decade with more than 100 Million users worldwide. Millions of messages, calls, pictures, and videos are being sent through Zalo daily.

The name Zalo was coined from the combination of “Zing” and “Alo” which can be translated for "hello" in Vietnam.

Some apps have already made their mark with distinct features, while some others are still struggling to stand. But no doubt, Zalo is making its mark with giant strides in the social network.

According to eMarketers research, Zalo has managed to beat some well-known apps such as Facebook Messenger, Line, Viber, and even Skype in Vietnam.

Zalo was initially targeted by VNG as an application that supports normal free calling and texting. With time, it upgraded from a messaging app like other social networks to a diary page for users to share their daily status and photos.

It also allows friends of users to like and comment on their posts.

Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Need better option

    By Jayimu (Pcmac user)

    I like using this app just something missing there no way to hide your online status when your online and want to stay invisible to other to focus on other thing.
  • Good but still has areas to improve

    By lvphat (Pcmac user)

    This is a good local OTA app in VN. I'd like the recent changes you made to Zalo. One issue, why I don't get the global notification when someone replies to my comment? It only shows the number increased on the bell icon which is easily got unnoticed.
  • The app is fairly crappy

    By Whomybest (Pcmac user)

    It requires access to your contacts without having a deny button. Viewing live video after it finished and it barely load 10 seconds of the live video. The app only load message on 1 device. Customer service is nonexistent. All I want is to talk to my friends in Vietnam and watch my friend’s live video record, since I missed it. This app need an update to fix all these problems.
  • Dark Mode

    By kermitxclouds (Pcmac user)

    It’d be great if you have an option for Dark Mode. 😌overall it’s all good.
