Sprint Turns On Direct Connect Plus PTT Service

Posted by at 3:20 pm on January 16, 2018

Sprint recently launched its Direct Connect Plus push-to-talk service. Direct Connect Plus powers walkie-talkie style conversations with instant connections between users.

The service relies on Kodiak’s LTE network-based technology, rather than Sprint’s discontinued iDEN network. It supports one-to-one and group conversations. Features include presence status, support for tablets, and corporate control over contacts and groups.

Sprint’s Direct Connect Plus service is available to most Android and iOS smartphones and tablets via mobile app for $5 per month.

Several handsets in Sprint’s line-up, including the Kyocera DuraXTP, DuraForce Pro, and DuraTR, include physical PTT buttons and native support for Direct Connect Plus. The service is aimed at business customers.
