AT&T Announces Enhanced Push-to-Talk Service for iPhone Business Customers

Lost in the shuffle in all the excitement over WWDC 2013 yesterday, was AT&T’s announcement that its Enhanced Push-to-Talk service is now available to business customers through a new app for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S. AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to offer this walkie-talkie- type of communication on the iPhone.

With Enhanced Push-to-Talk capability, iPhone business customers won’t have to dial a number to call someone, and instead can push a button on the iPhone to broadcast a voice message to a group of people. The feature can be used over Wi-Fi, which gives U.S. customers more in-building coverage and access to the service through compatible networks and the company said it operates using the U.S.’s largest Wi-Fi network, which includes more than 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots.

AT&T claims that its push-to-talk service will support up to 250 people.

Features of AT&T’s Enhanced Push-to-Talk for iPhone include:

  • Larger contact lists and talk groups than competitive push-to-talk solutions
  • Ability to combine push-to-talk services and mobile applications, with help available from AT&T’s team of mobility consulting and integration experts
  • Supervisory override that allows supervisors to communicate important time sensitive messages to their team
  • Call setup in less than one second

iPhone business customers on AT&T’s network can download the AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk app in the App Store for free. [DIRECT LINK]
