Zulu Mobile (for Android and iPhone) has now been released as a Beta, open to all Zulu 3 users for testing. For more information on installing the Beta, please check out the Installation section below or refer to Zulu Mobile Installation


The team continues to work on the reliability of push notifications for both Zulu Mobile on iOS and Android based on user feedback.

Zulu Mobile beta requires the FreePBX Zulu module versions 14.0.57 and 15.0.57 or beyond. FreePBX version 13 will not be supported at this time.  This version is currently the Zulu server module published to edge.

To update the Zulu module in FreePBX, run the command fwconsole ma upgrade zulu --edge, or enable Edge mode and upgrade via the Module Admin UI. See https://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FPG/Edge+vs+Stable for more information on FreePBX Edge mode.

Zulu Mobile does not work with FreePBX or PBXact self-signed certificates. To use Zulu Mobile, please configure a valid certificate in the Certificate Manager, using the instructions in the Certificate Management User Guide. Note that for Android to work correctly you also need to add the trusted chain for your certificate within Certificate Manager. If you are already getting a certificate error on Android, please see Android - Trust anchor for certification path not found for more information on how to resolve.
