    Short summary describing this concept.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    'Push to talk' (PTT) is a common feature in online multiplayer games, predominantly FPS (First Person Shooters). It is the act of allowing a player to communicate via the internet with his team or the entire group of players by holding a button which verifies that he/she wishes to speak.

    it is an updated model of multiplayer communication due to complaints by players for hearing coughs, radios, TV's and family members, thus degrading their online experience. With PTT the only sound that is transmitted is of the individual's choosing.
