WhatsApp Could Get Push-To-Talk Functionality [Rumor]

whatsapp-blackberry-q10WhatsApp is a popular messaging platform available for smartphones. It allows users to send videos, photos and even audio clips to one another, but could the developers behind WhatsApp be thinking about possibly adding push-to-talk capabilities in the future? According to the folks at 9to5 Mac, they claim to have received several tips so far which has suggested that the developers behind WhatsApp could be looking to add a push-to-talk feature in the app.

This was revealed via an email allegedly from the WhatsApp team to a Hong Kong developer, asking the developer to help the company translate several new strings into Chinese. The strings, according to the email, include Camera button on/off, and a push-to-talk button. Of course this email could have easily been faked, but adding push-to-talk functionality isn’t exactly groundbreaking, plus it would give users a reason to stay with WhatsApp instead of switching to push-to-talk apps such as Vox. Take this with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think of push-to-talk coming to WhatsApp? Is this a welcome feature?
