Downloading the Legacy PC Application


Zello's legacy PC application is the predecessor to the Zello Dispatch Hub

While the below instructions walk you through downloading the legacy PC application, we recommend all users migrate to Dispatch Hub as soon as possible. Doing so will ensure you and your team receive the best support and most current Zello features.  

Legacy PC application download

Download the legacy app from your management console by going to Home > Service Status & Updates > Releases Archive > Legacy PC App.

Future Plans

Zello Work customers are strongly encouraged to migrate to Dispatch Hub for a similar—but enhanced—Zello Work desktop experience. At this point in time, we don't have an exact date that that the legacy PC app will sunset. When that date is established, we'll ensure users are informed. 

If you're a free app user curious about the Dispatch Hub, we invite you to establish a free trial of Zello Work. 

Questions? Contact us or submit a new ticket for support-related inquiries.

    Will we all lose our free zello on our cell phones in the future? It would be a sad day for us all if we did. We need our free zello. It helps us to keep in touch with people who are in need and lonely. And need someone to talk to. And can not afford to pay for zello if this is the case. So think of these people who depend on this network, even in the case of an emergency.
    Thank you for your attention. A fellow user who stands for the helpless R. A. L.

    I am one of many folks that weather support for a number of volunteer response teams during disasters. The desktop app is vital these operations in keeping our teams on the ground updated with potential threats or hazards, without having to drop comms each time my cell phone rings. I hope that you might reconsider this decision for the volunteers and non profit organizations who utilize Zello for vital comms during severe weather events such as major storms, flooding and tornadoes; along with wildfire ops, searches for those lost, hurricane search, rescue and recovery operations. Your consideration will be greatly appreciated.

    Little by little you're removing all the things Zello once offered with ease of use, like searching for channels, and all for free. Everyone was happy and grateful. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before you take away the free mobile app too. That's when I hope everyone boycotts your Zello Work and you lose it all. Keep in mind Nextel's fate. Have a nice day :)
