Microsoft just dropped a bombshell on their roadmap for Microsoft 365. They’re integrating Teams Walkie-Talkie with Apple’s Push-to-Talk framework for iOS devices. But what does that mean for us? Well, imagine having the functionality of a walkie-talkie right on your iPhone, seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Teams.

What is Teams Walkie-Talkie?

It’s like having a virtual walkie-talkie in your pocket, allowing you to chat instantly and securely with your colleagues. And now, with this integration, it’s getting even better. Apple’s PTT framework lets developers create walkie-talkie features in their apps, but with system-wide controls and efficient background operation.

Translation? You can use Walkie-Talkie mode straight from your lock screen, even when Teams isn’t open on your phone.

Exciting, isn’t it? Who’s ready to start walkie-talkie chatting?
