WhatsApp Adds Push To Talk Feature on BlackBerry 10 & Other Platforms

WhatsApop Voice

WhatsApp has just pushed their app a little forward with push to talk integration. That means you can easily send voice notes back and forth just by holding the little recording microphone. This is nowhere near the full duplex voice and video calls you can make over BBM now but I really really hope BlackBerry adds a push to talk button in the future. It would be a great way to send a note quickly without having to make a full call or having to enter the menu. In short it would just be another button to add to the BBM chat screen.

Check out the new Push to Talk feature out in WhatsApp and let us know what you think. The new feature is added server side so you do not need to upgrade the app but if you don’t already have it then you can download it in BlackBerry World. Let us know if it is working on legacy BlackBerry devices!

  1. Wow, the race is on for IM supremacy. I really hope that the BBM cross platform app kicks some major butt. It has to be released working flawlessly, for the microscope will be all over it.

  2. Everyone with what’s app should change their status to “Watch for BBM COMING SOON”

  3. No WhatsApp love for legacy devices…

  4. BBM must have feature “Push to Talk or Push to Video” just by pressing the button and talk and person at the other end can hear without doing anything like a Walki Talki radio. This is the only way to be ahead of competitions. BBM must have this feature for people to be excited!!!

  5. I love it. There is no shame in BlackBerry copying this feature. It is brilliant

  6. Dude why is nt there much apps for blackberry world….cmon..they shud upgrade it with more cool and free apps like da playstore…whyyyy

  7. What cool apps are you looking for? I know people think they need more, but, which ones? I don’t know what I want on my device that isn’t coming already. I guess I am not that interested unless it makes me more efficient in my life. I know that it is not the same for everyone.

  8. I still have 10.1.0.4181 version for my Blackberry Q10 OS, how to upgrade it to 10.2?

  9. If you have a side button mapped to BBM and press it in a BBM conversation it records a voice note (which you can send immediately by pressing the BBM button again). I’ve been doing this for a long time now. BBM 7 on a 9700.
