How to use Fast Talkie with Zello

Even though Walkie Talkie Apps have changed how staff ​communicate with each other during work, there were many areas of improvement to make communication more easy & efficient.

Over the last year we have developed a faster way to communicate using Push-to-Talk Apps such as Zello & VoicePing.

We have released the Fast Talkie App that would enhance your Push-to-Talk Communication experience.

What is Fast Talkie

Fast Talkie allows Zello users to send Push-to-talk messages without entering the Zello App.

Why Fast Talkie

Effective & Efficient

Effortless Communication increases productivity and efficiency. A good response time is crucial for effective communication. With Fast Talkie staff can communication & respond to each other more effectively and efficiently

Saves Time

The amount times do you have to unlock your device screen and open the app to send a PTT message is numerous. With Fast Talkie sending a Push-to-Talk message can be performed by pressing couple button which saves you from the hassle of unlocking your device over & over again.


Looking a your device screen while multi-tasking can not only distract you at your task at hand, but it can also dangerous if you driving etc. Fast Talkie allows you to send messages without looking at the device screen.

How it Works

Activate Fast Talkie

When the device is in sleep mode, Press the Power Button on the device to activate your screen. Fast Talkie detects button presses but it is only able to do this when the screen is ON.
