Push to Talk
Conversations using push to talk are not simultaneous as they are with a phone call. Meaning, one person transmits and speaks while the other person can only listen. once the first person is finished and releases the transmission button, the second person may respond.
There is also the option to use the push to talk feature as group talk. This means that one person can transmit to several designated people at the same time. While group talk still requires that only one person can speak at a time, everyone designated in that group can hear what is being discussed and can respond back, one at a time.
In many ways, use of the convenient push to talk feature can help save time and money. In business applications, employees will spend less time on phone calls and still be able to get the answers they need quickly. For residential uses, money can be saved on using less minutes for the quick conversations that can easily be had over the push to talk process.
