If you're like us, the first question you probably asked after reading our headline is, "Why would I want or need to turn my phone into a walkie-talkie?" After doing a little digging, we found out that these walkie-talkie apps have lots of practical uses. We'll cover three apps that you can use to turn your phone into a press-to-talk device.
The press-to-talk feature replaces the need to send text messages or dial someone, wait for them to answer and hold a (gasp!) real conversation. Construction crews use walkie-talkie apps to communicate on large job sites. Event staff use them to coordinate event details and communicate with each other. And families use them when they're camping, shopping the superstores, and sport events.
