Relay is a unique device that raises a lot of questions. How long is the Relay battery life? Does the Relay have a vibrate mode? Can the Relay work on WiFi?
To make getting answers easier, I wanted to put all of your questions in one easy-to-find place.
How long is the Relay battery life?
Relay has a unique battery that was designed specifically to the shape and size of Relay. This battery typically lasts for 2-days before it needs recharging.
How does the Relay charge?
The Relay uses magnetic charging to fire up its battery. We purposely avoided using a charging port to make Relay more durable - without a port, the chance of water, dirt, or sand damage to the charging port is eliminated.
How durable is the Relay?
With splash guards and the lack of a charging port (mentioned above), the Relay is designed to be play-proof. An accidental drop on the sidewalk or walk through the rain shouldn’t hurt it.
Does Relay have a vibrate mode and a silent mode?
Relay does vibrate to alert you of incoming messages, however, Relay does not have a silent mode. This is a feature we hope to have in a future software update.
Will Relay tell me if I am in an area with no coverage?
Relay has an LED display as well as a voice indicator that will notify a user if he or she is out of range. The companion app will also indicate when/if the Relay is not in a coverage area.
Can Relay connect to WiFi?
Yes, Relay can connect to WiFi through the companion app.
Can I leave messages on a Relay?
Not currently. This is something we would like to have in the future but is not a feature we have available at the moment. This is an important use case and we are working on making this feature available in the future.
Will I be able to access Google Assistant from my Relay?
Our engineers are working on adding a Google assistant channel for Relay. Many of the channels are still in development, and that is one of them. Since Relay is a push to talk device, you would be holding down the talk button while addressing the Google Assistant.
How does the GPS tracking capability work with Relay?
The GPS tracking capability will work essentially the same as a phone’s GPS with the same accuracy and similar overall experience.
