The pros are obvious - missed message is one of the reasons I’ve hung on to relay the past year or so, because it’s hard to always be listening 24/7 when it’s simply a cell-based walkie talkie. But it has been a disappointment for the following reasons that I hope can be addressed:
It only works on 1:1 direct chat. Like many parents, I like using my cell phone and having my own relay. The phone obviously gives versatility to the account, wifi settings and other such things. But having my own relay is convenient when I don’t want to use the phone - which is often, since the darn app needs to be open to hear someone anyway (I know, an issue Relay is well aware of). So, it’s a problem that my child has to leave two separate messages in case I am busy at work and want to check messages later. I know there are many scenarios besides mine where leaving a message for more than one person would be helpful.
The flashing light indicating a message waiting is far too infrequent - seems to be every 15 seconds or so. What are the odds you would see the flash if you just looked at the Relay to see if there is a missed message? You’d have to wait 15-20 seconds to see if you have a message? And the audio alert, while nice, is of course only done once (which it should be), but the visual flash should be more often.
Hope these can be addressed, or maybe there are settings I am unaware of.
