Sprint Adds PTT Compatibility For Another 6 Android-Powered Smartphones


Earlier today, Sprint announced that it has added another six new Android-powered smartphones to its lineup of PTT service compatible handsets which enables customers to have fast one-to-one conversations via 3G when they open up the Sprint Direct Connect Now App – which is available to download from the Google play store.

“With Sprint Direct Connect Now, consumers and businesses can easily download push-to-talk service to help mobilize their lives, their businesses, and their workforces,” says John Tudhope, Sprint director-Product Marketing.

The list of newly added smartphones can be seen below:

  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • LG G2
  • LG G Flex
  • LG Optimus F3
  • Kyocera Hydro Edge

Sprint also unveiled its plans to add the Galaxy S4 Mini, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and the Galaxy S4 with Spark LTE to its push-to-talk portfolio of handsets. Unfortunately, the operator did not provide us with any information with regards to a launch date for these devices, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Earlier today the carrier re-uploaded the app to the Play Store servers, so if you own one of the newly added compatible devices and wish to download the application all you have to do is click here, then give Sprint a call to subscribe to its Push-to-Talk plan for an additional $5 per month, then you’re good to go.
