Push to Talk Plus now available for Verizon DROID MAXX, Galaxy S5, and more

Verizon seemingly doesn't want to let go of Push to Talk, so they've updated things a bit with their new Push to Talk Plus service. Push to Talk Plus brings improvements such as better voice quality and faster call set up time. New features like Talker Priority — which allows for a group leader to take over a call — and Late Join — which allows a caller to access a call late — make the service more like a traditional conference call.

Push to Talk Plus is available now on numerous Android devices like the DROID MAXX, Galaxy S5, G'zOne Commando, and will soon be available on the Kyocera Brigadier as well. Business users simply need to activate the service and download the Push to Talk app on their devices. The service rings in at $5/month, but Verizon is offering a 6-month credit on the service for a limited time (so it's free for the first six months).
