Announcing Bell Push to Talk (PTT) 9.0. As part of the 9.0 release, new and existing Bell customers will benefit from the following new features if they choose to download the software update.
Integrated secure messaging*
You can now use the Bell PTT app for more than just voice communications. Easily send text messages, multimedia content (e.g., images, video, recorded audio), or location information (e.g., specific address or GPS coordinates) to users in your Talkgroup.
PTT supervisors and dispatchers can now create a geo-fence and receive notifications when fleet members enter or leave the defined area. These geo-fences can be static or follow the supervisor as they move, helping them stay notified of those nearby. Supervisors can also now initiate calls from within the map window by selecting a user’s location marker.
Voice message fallback*
Automatically records and delivers an incoming PTT call as a voice message when the recipient is not available, busy, or out of the coverage area.
Radio Mode enhancements
Radio Mode now supports 96 Talkgroups (increasing from eight) and uses the concept of zones to group Talkgroup channels.
* Data connectivity is required with use of these features and standard data charges may apply.
