The good old-fashioned two-way radio, or walkie-talkie has been around for decades, in fact over a century. As early as 1907 two-way telegraphy traffic across the Atlantic Ocean was commercially available. With the advent of World War 1 (1914-18) military application of two-way communication saw rapid advancements.

Fast-forward one hundred years and push-to-talk (PTT) technology has evolved by taking two-way radio technology and marrying it to the internet.

WHAT IS PUSH TO TALK?

Push to Talk (PTT) is a method of voice communication that allows you to simply press a button for instant and secure talk.

PTT works on many types of devices, dedicated PTT devices, smartphones and even computers.

Like walkie-talkie, you can talk to many devices at once, or privately one-to-one.
