Find answers to commonly asked questions about the Voxer Messaging app.
Voxer is a live messaging application that brings push-to-talk technology to smartphones. Our service features live and recorded voice - if a you push the button to talk, you can be heard on the other end as you speak, but everything is also simultaneously recorded so you and the recipient(s) can play back any message later.
Unlike other push-to-talk services and systems, Voxer also has integrated text, photo, and location sharing which can be sent alongside voice messaging. You can to talk to individuals or groups - select up to 5 chat participants to communicate with at once (or up to 500 using Voxer Pro).
Voxer works over any cellular data network (2G, 3G, 4G, EDGE, LTE) and over WiFi. Anywhere there’s a data signal, you can vox - we have groups of individuals talking to each other in over 200 countries.
Voxer is a free application that can be downloaded onto any iOS (iPhone, iPad or iPod), or Android device.
The most notable difference between Voxer and other systems is live and recorded audio messaging. Other PTT solutions are live-only, which means communication is lost when someone is busy or unavailable. We have over 100 issued patents that protect our proprietary technology. Voxer also has multimedia integration (text, photo and location sharing) which many live-only voice services do not offer.
Our service works on any cellular phone or WiFi-enabled iOS or Android device that can download apps. You do not need to purchase a proprietary device for the app to work, and each user can use their preferred device.
Some cellular based PTT services still only work on a 3G network, we work on any available data network - 2G, 3G, 4G, and WiFi. We pick the best available network to send a message. The message is sent as the data is received.
Voxer also works on the web and allows for easy international communication at no additional cost, and allows for group chats of up to 500 users, while EPTT only allows for 200.
