Sprint today announced the recent availability of a new app (Sprint Direct Connect Now) that adds push-to-talk features to Android smartphones such as the Kyocera Rise and forthcoming LG Optimus Elite. Available as a free app, it basically adds the same PTT service that comes with Direct Connect models but without the physical button.
Sprint Direct Connect Now key features:
- Interoperable with Nextel Direct Connect and Sprint Direct Connect
- Group Connect calls up to 21 participants
- Call alerts to notify others you want to talk without interrupting
- Convenient touchscreen controls
- Displays contact image for speaker
- Synchronizes contacts with device’s address book
