Push to Talk is a slick and unobtrusive menu bar app that makes voice chats worry-free and keeps the flow of conversation clear. Simply press down the user-configurable hotkey when you want to activate your microphone, and then release when you want the microphone to be muted again.
The aim of this app is to eliminate all those unnecessary and often embarrassing noises that can play in the background during onlne voice conversations. We're all too familiar with children screaming in the background while you're trying to have that important cross-continent business call on a Saturday afternoon - worries like these will be a thing of the past :)
How does Push to Talk work?
The app simply mutes your microphone until you hold down a hot key (user selectable) on your keyboard. Hot key pressed, you can then chat on any voice client or record your voice knowing you are only transmitting audio via your microphone when you actually want to.
