Explanation of Settings

    • Reduces the "ready to send" delay to zero, allowing Zello to instantaneously broadcast a message.
    • Results in faster connection times between two users.
    • Particularly beneficial for networks with a higher latency.
    • For more information on the QuickConnect feature, see this support article.

    • Determines the duration a message can play before it is interrupted by another message.
    • Useful when two messages are sent concurrently. The message sent first will play for the intended duration, after which it'll be interrupted by the second message. 

    • Determines the maximum length of voice messages sent in the channel.
    • Increments include an unlimited duration; 5, 10, 20, or 30 seconds; or 1, 2, or 5 minutes. 

    • Determines the frequency that Zello will attempt to re-deliver messages to connected users in case of failure.
    • Beneficial if a user experiences a temporary network disconnection (for example, a momentary internet disruption).
    • This setting will only apply to the current list of recipients at the time the message is sent. 
    • Intention: delivery to connected users in case of failure. 

    • Enables a channel to cache a message and deliver it for a specified amount time, including to users who connect to the channel after the message is sent.
    • This ensures users who were not initially connected to the channel will receive the message if they sign in within the specified time frame. 
    • Intention: delivery to specified users regardless of connection status.
