The future is here
While we’ve continued to provide VRS, we’ve also been building something new. We learned so much from our global counterparts and we wanted to bring their innovations to the USA.
We’re thrilled to introduce Convo Now, your on-demand platform for in-person conversations. Get started today: bring us to where you have been meaning to have a conversation.
Want full access at a specific place? Let us know!
We are inspired by the stories of Deaf people in the countries we work in. We’re finding new ways to use this new technology and testing it out in new settings. But one thing’s for sure, we can see how impactful a simple conversation can be.
Want to try Convo Now before signing up to become a subscriber? Not a problem!

I thought you couldn't use this service in the same room? Is this paid by FCC?
Convo Now is an on-demand video interpreting service designed for in-person conversations and is not paid for by the FCC. This is different from Convo VRS which is funded through the interstate Telecommunications Relay Fund (TRS) which the FCC oversees and regulates. To learn more about payment options and opportunities to use Convo Now at a place of business, visit convorelay.com/convonow.
Who pays for it? Is this service free?
We agree that the burden should not fall on the D/HH community and we encourage businesses and employers to support communication access by funding Convo Now services. We can help on the advocacy and education front. To start this process, please connect with us at convorelay.com/convonow and recommend local businesses and organizations you’d like to be able to use Convo Now.
Deaf people are also welcome to set up an account for personal use, and there’s a wonderful option for family and friends to support this fund. If you have any questions, we’re just a message away!
Can I use Convo Now anywhere?
Yes, anywhere you can use your phone! Make sure you have a strong LTE/cellular connection or access to WiFi for the best experience.
Is this in the same Convo app? Or do I need to download a different app?
Convo Now is a new app that you will need to download separately. To begin this process, please connect with us at convorelay.com/convonow, and our team will guide you through it.
