Roger replacements?

iOS and iPadOS

Hello all,
In just a few short days, Roger, one of my favorite voice messaging apps will sease to exist. I know about Hey Tell, Zello, WhatsApp, and Threma. I am just trying to figure out which one I should go for. I already hav WhatsApp, but sometimes the messages that I receive take up room on my iPhone. Another app that was recommended to me was BitTorrent Bleep, but I do not know if that supports voice messaging. And I know that Wire is not very accessible. Have I missed any apps? Let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
Thanks so much. :-)

I'm using zello and threema. All of my groups are on threema. It is a pretty good audio platform. The devs just need to make some tweeks. They are very good at responding.

There's an excellent podcast explaining Threema. This might help you make a decision.

I'm having no trouble with Threema. One of my friends set it up so I would have to enter their ID as their nickname, but it worked and we were able to send messages back and forth. The audio quality is comparable to Roger, which is a good thing.

What's happening with Roger? Devs discontinuing development?

I am also using Zello and Threema. I like them both but I am leaning more towards Threema even though it is a paid app. I wish they would make a few tweeks but it is pretty nice. WhatsApp is ok too I guess.
