It’s summertime and your kids are running free. Luckily, they’re still only a Relay away. But what if you, the parent, don’t want to carry around two devices? When you told us your concerns, we listened. Did you know you can communicate with your Relay right from your smartphone with PTT (push to talk) walkie talkie app functionality via the Relay app? You said you didn’t want to carry around a second device every day—and we agree!
When you update your Relay app to the latest version and open it, Relay chat should be the first thing you see. You can tap and hold the push to talk button and communicate to all Relays in your group. Now, we heard your concerns about Relay messages blaring from your pocket during meetings and at work, so messages will only come through to your smartphone when the Relay app is open. But we wouldn’t leave your Relays with no way to reach you!
When you press and hold the volume button on your Relay, it sends a notification, or channel alert, to your phone telling you which Relay is trying to get in touch with you. Then, you can open the app and start chatting. Now you can keep your pockets light and keep tabs on the little ones during your summer vacation!
Pro Tip: Make sure the media volume on your phone isn’t muted to get the best in-app Relay experience!
