Verizon's Push to Talk is getting an upgrade with the introduction of Push to Talk Plus (PTT+). With Push to Talk Plus, you get quicker call set up times, lower latency, and more devices to help keep your workforce more efficient than ever.
Verizon's Push To Talk Plus leverages America's largest 4G LTE network to connect your important Push To Talk calls.
PTT+ allows you to instantly connect with 1, 10 or even 250 people.
PTT+ is available on 4G LTE smartphones, including iPhone 6+, iPhone 6, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5S.
Users can connect from anywhere using Verizon’s 4G LTE network or over any WiFi network and can maximize their productivity with unmatched features including: instant group calling, robust contact lists, and call alert to get more done, in less time.
Key Features for PTT+:
• Broad cellular network coverage
• Faster speeds
• Better voice quality
• Latest handset models that support 4G LTE
• User Presence (Available, Unavailable, Do Not Disturb)
• Contact Management via device or Web Portal
• Compatibility with existing Verizon PTT subscribers
Download of the Push To Talk Plus application is FREE, but data charges will apply for the download. Push To Talk Plus service requires a monthly subscription (see My Account or contract for actual pricing).
Important: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Added support for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Ratings and Reviews
Push to talk physical button needed
I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max and was looking in settings (both in app and in iPhone settings) to assign the Siri button as the physical push to talk button (while using the app). I can’t seem to find anything and even texted into Verizon customer care and spoke with an agent that could not find an answer, but was very eager to get my idea to the people that can implement it. I also decided to leave this review to double ensure that the proper people see this idea and are hopefully able to implement it sooner than later. That said, I know apple can be annoying for developers to work with, so hopefully it is a possibility to get it implemented.
Works great, needs update
We have all Kyocera PTT+ phones in my company. My son downloaded the app for his iPhone so he could be in contact. App works great, no noticeable difference between app and our phones except app must be open in the background at all times for someone to contact you. App should automatically run in background at all times like iMessage so even when closed you can receive alerts, maybe add a "do not disturb" option. Otherwise, great app!
Emergency Personnel use not too good
Ok, The greatest thing use to be Nextel! Now that Verizon has PTT+ I couldn’t wait to incorporate it into our account for EMS. Now that we have it I’m 50 - 50. The app itself works great and I have no complaints there. However, here are my issues; the app should be an integrated app into the phone so you can change things through settings like button configuration so you can use a side button for PTT. Also, you should be able to change the background color to black because trying to communicate on the way to an emergency you are blinded by the white screen. If these things can be changed I will give it 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and 100% recommendation! Thanks
