USA based AT&T has announced the launch of Push to Talk capabilities for users of Apple's iPhone. In addition, AT&T Enhanced Push to Talk, which is currently only available to business customers can now be used over Wi Fi.
The service will be available to users of Apple's iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S.
"Across industries such as manufacturing, engineering, hospitality, construction and government, organizations need instant communications in challenging environments," said Mike Troiano, Vice President, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. "From the start, AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk was designed specifically for AT&T's speedy 4G LTE networks and now we are offering even more devices so our business customers can communicate faster and to larger talk groups."
The announcement coincidentally comes just a few weeks before Sprint Nextel shuts-down its legacy iDEN based PTT service and is trying to migrate customers over to its newer network.
