What is Vox Connect?

‘Vox Connect’ is intelligent smartphone guiding for groups. It is a state-of-the-art app that harnesses wireless technology to connect the smartphones of tour guides and their groups. It is simple to set up and use and delivers crystal-clear communication with low latency. Moreover, by using their personal devices and earphones group members can socially distance with ease.

With Vox Connect, touring becomes even more of a pleasure as this unique technology allows guests to message their guide, and receive images and information sheets, to enhance their experience.

Long-distance streaming will allow a tour in Italy to be listened to in New York, or a guest relaxing at their hotel to virtually join their group at the Eiffel Tower.

How it works

The Vox Connect app is a free download. It turns the smartphone of a guide into a transmitter and the visitor’s phone into a receiver, which then connect wirelessly over mobile internet, venue Wi-Fi or Vox Box, our portable Wi-Fi device (see below).

After creating a Vox account you can choose between daily, long and seasonal rental. Simply  share your channel codes with guests and begin your tours. It couldn’t be easier!
