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 advanced mixing technology allows guides to use voice and music to enhance their guests’ experience.

Guest interactivity enables polls to be conducted or questions answered at any time and a record function allows later playback. 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!
