Learn how to enable push to talk alerts.




You can control how you want notifications sent to your phone. Users can set an alert for:

  • Incoming message starting
  • Incoming message completed
  • Failed to send a message
  • Failed to play incoming messages
  • Connection lost
  • Connection restored.
  • When there is new PTT Activitiy

You can turn these notifications on from the PTT screen by clicking the gear icon (settings) and selecting alerts: PTT > PTT Settings > Alerts

Also, from our testing on properties, we've found that using a headset works better to prevent missed messages while allowing you to keep your phone in your pocket and still receive and respond to PTT messages. Zinc PTT works with any wired headsets and we've also partnered with various vendors to enable Push to Talk on hardware devices.
