AUSTIN, Texas, June 24, 2014 / PRNewswire / - Zello Inc. introduced Local, the latest feature for its free applications for iPhone and Android. This is the first application in its class where users can speak anonymously and in real time with other users to share information about local events. Local allows users to stay up-to-date on local and real-time events, discover new sites and make new friends.

Zello Local application users create new conversations by recording a short presentation message and selecting then an optional title, a category and a photo. Those within a 3-mile radius will hear the message instantly and can join or ignore the conversation.

The feature is optional and does not share the exact location of the user but instead displays the chat sites within a half mile on a map. Local voice chats disappear after a few hours of inactivity. To receive the new feature, current iOS and Android users simply upgrade to the latest version of the Zello app on Google Play or an Apple iTunes app store.

Since its launch in June 2012, Zello has become the most popular and best-qualified mobile PTT application in the world with more than 60 million registered users. The use of Zello increased dramatically in Egypt, Turkey, Venezuela and Ukraine, when protesters on the streets used the application to communicate freely.
