le gong communicates with the smartphone with Bluetooth low energy (also known as BLE). BLE is a wireless technology. This tech is standard, available almost on any device (iOS and Android) and does not need a lot of battery power to work. le gong is paired with your phone ; don't worry! other bluetooth devices can work along le gong : your earpods, your portable speaker, whatever.
The companion app (iOS and Android) allows you to configure the behaviour of a le gong button click. You can choose who is calling you (picture, name, number). You can also select a time offset to determine how long after a button push your smartphone should ring.
