Microsoft makes Walkie Talkie available to all users

Washington US January 15, ANI Microsoft is making its Walkie Talkie feature available to all users of its Microsoft Teams.

Walkie Talkie lets Microsoft Teams users turn their phones or tablets into a walkie-talkie that works over cellular data or Wi-Fi. It was originally announced two years ago and has been available in preview for a long time.

Microsoft has launched the feature on Android in September of 2020, but it is now available for iPhones and iPads as well as Zebra mobile devices.

Microsoft mainly pitches this to frontline workers, employees who are customer-facing and run day-to- day operations inside companies. The software maker's collaboration with Zebra Technologies makes it work with a dedicated push-to- talk button for quick and secure communication.

These devices are widely used by frontline workers, the employees who have helped steer the world through the ongoing Pandemic, according to The Verge.
