I'm using the newest version of Skype, and the only option I see there that's like PTT is "Mute microphone" which is definitely NOT the same thing. I have a small child and a lot of background noise, I definitely don't want to be holding the mute microphone button the whole night. Maybe I'm just missing something in the options, but I've been round and round over this issue before with some idiot who used to be in my guild. She couldn't understand why I had no desire to transmit every bit of audio in my computer room to everyone in the guild. Seriously, if I'm missing an option somewhere, let me know, but "Mute microphone" is the only thing I see there and that's just not adequate. I only want to talk when I push a button *to* talk.
