The Buzz In! buzzer app is the first virtual network buzzer on the app store to connect multiple devices without requiring all of the users to be on the same WiFi network! Anyone across the world can join your group and compete to be the first one to buzz in. The Buzz In! buzzer app serves as a great tool for playing various game shows, quiz bowl type competitions, or as a tool to make your classroom more interactive. Do you need a fun way to determine which person buzzes in first in your video trivia game during quarantine?
The idea for this application originated from playing trivia through a video conference with friends and family while everyone quarantined. We needed an unbiased and accurate way to tell which team buzzed in first to answer each question. This application meets that goal and adds a little bit of extra fun for everyone involved. Technical Details
The buzzer requires multiple devices in order to use - one host and at least one player (up to 100 person games currently!). Only one device should be the host at any point in the game in order to accurately keep track of which player was the first to buzz in.
The host device is able to view the timestamp and order of every player that buzzes in. The host is also able to clear the round to allow for new buzzes.
Each player device can buzz in and celebrate with confetti and exploding tacos whenever they are the first to buzz in.
The Buzz In! app requires an Internet connection for every device in the competition. The player devices can either be in the same room or located halfway across the world as long as everyone has Internet access.Getting Started
Open the app then enter a Group Name and a Player Name. The Group Name needs to match with everyone else playing, so ensure everyone uses the same group (watch out for typos). The Player Name should be the name you would like to use when buzzing in. This name will be shown to the host when you buzz in so make it as creative as you like!
After entering the Group and Player Name fields, go to the Host or Player screen depending on which role you want to be. The host device will need to initiate the group and round by clicking on the "New Round" button before anyone will be allowed to buzz in.Non-Android Users
Currently, there is only a mobile app for Android users. Apple users can join in on the fun through a web version of the buzzer. Also, the Buzz In! buzzer app does cost a small fee because there are associated costs running the server that makes everything work. If you are interested in a free but heavily ad supported version or hearing about more information about the web version for friends without an Android device, email us at [email protected]
