Downloading the Legacy PC Application


This article provides some information and resources with regard to the Legacy PC Zello Application. This application is the predecessor to the Zello Dispatch Hub application. This application will be fully replaced and will no longer receive updates moving forward. For users who are utilizing a radio gateway, the Legacy PC app is currently the only app that supports this feature.



If you are a Zello Work customer: Download the legacy app from your management console by going to Home > Service Status & Updates > Releases Archive > Legacy PC App.


If you are not a Zello Work customer: follow the link here to download the legacy PC application.

Note: This version of the app is not compatible with Zello Work. 


Future Plans

While the legacy PC application is still functional at this time, this application will be sunset and all free Zello users will need to use the free mobile application for either iOS or Android operating systems. For ZelloWork customers who may be using this application, we strongly suggest migrating to Dispatch Hub for the most up to date application and ongoing support. For customers using the free Zello app who would like to use Dispatch Hub, we recommend starting a free trial of ZelloWork to use Dispatch Hub.

    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 :)
