Microsoft Teams: Walkie Talkie App



Message:   The Walkie Talkie app in Teams provides instant push-to-talk (PTT) communication on Android and iOS phones. The app connects members of a Teams channel, enabling the PTT capability once connected.  It is important to note that you must be an owner or member of the particular Teams Workspace Channel that is selected in the Walkie Talkie app (see step 3) to speak to each other.

To use the Walkie Talkie app on your phone (example below is on Android), open the Teams App on your phone, (1) view all apps, (2) select the Walkie Talkie icon, (3) select the Teams Channel for the group that will use the app, (4) select connect.
