If location permission is allowed, OtoZen Buddies can see when each is driving. This allows your Buddy to pick the safest and most effective way to communicate with you. For example, if a father and son are OtoZen Buddies, the father can check the OtoZen app to see if the son is driving. If he is, the father may choose to send the son an OtoZen Voice Message, instead of a text, to prevent the son from being tempted to check his phone while driving.
Buddy Voice Messages play directly through the car's stereo system without any action required from the Driver.
Other apps do not allow you to see if the recipient is driving and require the recipient to open the app and tap a play button to hear the message.
With OtoZen Voice Messages, eyes stay on the road and hands stay on the wheel.
