VoicePing supports most modern Bluetooth 4.0 Headsets that has a Call or Multi Function button. On Android 8.0 and above smartphones, users can press on the button once to start a PTT. After they finish talking they can then press again to stop. To prevent accidental PTT, the maximum duration is 15 seconds in toggle mode.

With the above “Bluetooth Headset using toggle mode”, some users might find that their button might not be placed in an accessible location or angle. Thus you can also pair a Bluetooth PTT button like Flic or Seecode SHP at the same time with your commercial bluetooth headset.

In this way, you can place the Bluetooth PTT button within easy reach and hear via the bluetooth headset.

Using the bluetooth button also gives you a real PTT effect where instead of pressing once to start talking and pressing again to stop, you can have Push-To-Talk. This means the message is recorded when you are pressing the button and stopped once you release. This will be more akin to traditional walkie talkies and users can get accustomed to it faster.

You can of course use the Bluetooth PTT button without an accompanying bluetooth headset. The microphone and speaker will rely on the smartphone or tablet. In this case, it will usually be a tablet or mounted device.

By leveraging on their current smartphone devices, and pairing any of the available PTT Bluetooth hands-free devices, you would be making significant savings from having to buy extra sets of hardware for the required walkie-talkie experience.

Not to mention the fact that an effective PTT device should be easily accessible and fit comfortably in your hand.
