the internet communications. It’s a little application, which allows
you to talk to your friends or colleagues instantly with a single touch
of a button. Think walkie talkie. It’s faster than text chat and more
convenient than calls. Loudtalks is available for Windows right now,
but we are working hard to bring it to other platforms soon, including
your mobile phone. Loudtalks is free and will always be free.

- Loud talk to all your friends at once
asking a person, who is at a distant location, a quick question most
people would prefer a text chat over a phone call. Phone calls (even
free ones) lose to instant messaging because of the ritual associated
with them, which makes things too complicated. Phone call requires
focus and dedicated time from all parties involved, which is difficult
even for one-on-one communication and nearly impossible for larger
groups. Everybody who ever tried to arrange a conference call knows
At the same time, if you want to ask something a person
sitting next to you, you will most likely use your voice. If you want
to announce something to the people in the room you will just say it
There is no reason why humans should prefer to use a keyboard to communicate. Especially a tiny mobile one. Loudtalks is about voice communication without calls, instant messaging without typing.
You have something to say — you push the button and say it. That’s it.
No typing, no typos, no calling, no busy signal. Group communication
with Loudtalks is just as easy — everybody participates at his own pace
and the entire group stays tuned, without interrupting their normal
activity. Public safety services use this method for ages and there is
a good reason for that. It simply works.
Loudtalks is based on
p2p-architecture, which allows scaling easily, and proprietary
protocols optimized for real-time communication over low-bandwidth and
high-latency connections such as GPRS or EDGE.
