Walkie Talkie in Teams Android

Walkie Talkie, which provides instant push-to-talk communication, will soon be available in Public Preview on Teams for Android.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 57157.

When this will happen

We will begin the rollout in mid-July and expect to be complete by end of July.

How this will affect your organization

During Public Preview, you need to enable Walkie Talkie using the Teams Admin Center to provide access to people in your organization. Once enabled, Walkie Talkie will become available on the Android app within 48 hours. Walkie Talkie allows users to connect with their team using the same underlying channels they are members of. Only users who connect to Walkie Talkie in a channel become participants and can communicate with each other using push-to-talk.
