How to use Fast Talkie with VoicePing

Over the last year, we at Smart Walkie have been working on enhancing the communication functionality on VoicePing. The goal was to develop faster & easier methods of Push-to-talk communication to increase efficiency & productivity. There are many steps involved to send a PTT message which is time-consuming so we had to create a solution where the app has the ability to send PTT messages without unlocking the device screen.

We have released our Fast Talkie App so it would enhance your Push-to-Talk Communication experience.

What is Fast Talkie

Fast Talkie allows users to send Push-to-talk messages with a locked device screen.

Why Fast Talkie

Effortless Communication

Quick Communication between staff increases productivity and efficiency due to faster response time. With Fast Talkie staff can communication & respond to each other more effectively and efficiently.

Save Time

Time is valuable and delayed communication will not only hamper the daily workflow but also cause misunderstandings between staff. With Fast Talkie selecting a channel & sending a PTT message can be done in few seconds.


Communicating while Multi-Tasking is common among staff these days. So with Fast Talkie, staff can give their undivided attention on work and still communicate without looking at the device screen.

How it Works
