Download, GroupVox Is A Virtual Walkie Talkie For Facebook Groups & Events [Android, iOS]

The newest update to the official Facebook Messenger app for Android and iOS might have conveyed the support for voice messaging, but it will not be regarded as a true walkie-talkie app. That is because the app only permits you share noted voice messages with your associates rather than proposing real push-to-talk (PTT) functionality like the previously-reviewed Rallee, which influenced us with most of its features but left much to be yearned in terms of the interface. If you’re searching for a cross-platform Facebook walkie talkie app that sports a design alike to the authorized Facebook apps, take a gaze at GroupVox. issued lately for Android and iOS, GroupVox permits you communicate with choose Facebook associates, assemblies and Events in walkie talkie style by push-to-talk voice messaging. In supplement, you get the choice to swap to accepted text-based chatting from the identical screen.

While the texting capabilities of GroupVox are a welcome addition to the package, it’s the app’s PTT messaging feature that makes it special. With minimum effort, you can stay in touch with your Facebook Groups, Event attendees and select Facebook friends via voice messaging. Unlike the Facebook Messaging app, GroupVox lets you instantly share your voice with a mere push of a button. Better yet, the app caches all the previously shared voice messages so that you may listen to them as many times as you want.
Compared to Rallee, GroupVox sports a rather simple UI. The app’s main screen lists your conversations with various Facebook users and groups. By tapping the + button at the top, you can initiate a new conversation session with a Facebook Group, Event or Friend. From the messaging screen, you can easily switch back and forth between text chatting and walkie talkie mode. For the latter, you just have to hold the blue button at the bottom and start talking. As with any walkie-talkie app, your conversations will be conveyed instantly to the other participants upon release of the button.
Every voice message will appear on the messaging screen as a separately playable audio clip. For messages shared by other users, the app alerts you through real-time notifications and if you have the messaging screen open when you receive a message, you’ll be able to instantly listen to it. GroupVox automatically posts all voice messages shared with a specific Facebook Group to their respective Walls, so that all the participants can listen to the complete conversation from their web browsers.

For an ongoing dialogue, you have the choice to invite new participants, set a applicable conversation theme, mark all messages as glimpsed, or depart the messaging computer display. The app’s settings computer display permits you clear newspapers cache, tweak diverse notification & vibration settings and hue: Red;">hue: Red;">accredit a hue: Red;">hue: Red;">made-to-order LED notification hue: Red;">hue for all GroupVox notifications. You’ll furthermore find the choice to use the ‘Volume down’ button to trigger the PTT characteristic from the messaging computer display, giving you a hardware PTT button.

Though not as feature-rich as Rallee, GroupVox is expected to catch the vigilance of a somewhat large assembly, particularly due to its cross-platform compatibility, easy-on-the-eyes interface, outstanding voice messaging quality, and Facebook support.
