BlueParrott introduces headsets with Microsoft Walkie Talkie feature

BlueParrott today introduced the C300-XT MS and B450-XT MS Bluetooth headsets for use with the new Microsoft Teams Walkie Talkie feature.

The Teams Walkie Talkie feature turns smartphones and tablets into a walkie talkie that works over cellular or WiFi networks, allowing team members to talk instantly across geographic locations without standard radio range restrictions, according to the company. The Teams Walkie Talkie feature is always available for use, even when devices are locked or busy with another application such as scanning, providing seamless collaboration. The feature is built to ensure walkie talkie communications are secure and only authorized members can access each channel.
