Systems and methods are described for intelligent grouping between group communication devices. In some embodiments, a method includes receiving, at a remote management platform, a recorded audio message from a first communication device that device includes a cellular networking component capable of connecting the first communication device to a cellular network. The first communication device may have a default grouping with a set of additional communication devices. In some embodiments, the default grouping can be created at a factory when the communication devices are manufactured. In other embodiments, the first communication device and the set of additional communications devices can be automatically paired upon initialization via a local communication network. A linking request can be automatically sent to the remote management platform to create the default grouping (e.g., by creating an entry in a routing table at the remote management platform).
