PTT Messenger

In a landmark technological development, Turkey launched on Sunday PttMessenger - a domestice messaging App to rival Facebook’s popular WhatsApp Messenger service.

PttMessenger is named after Turkey’s Post and Telegraph General Directorate (PTT).

At present, the new app is introduced in a limited roll-out to state institutions and some private companies this week. It is expected to be publicly available in six months.

“All public institutions will use this. Later it will be opened up for the use of citizens. It is a kind of ‘native and national’ version of WhatsApp.

"None of the data will be stored in a server so it will not be possible to access it. A more secure system than WhatsApp has been developed,” Bozdağ said.

Ahead of the cabinet meeting at the Prime Ministry’s Çankaya Palace earlier on Feb. 5, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım was recorded by the press speaking via live video conference on PTT Messenger with military commanders stationed in the southern province of Hatay.

“The visuals are very clear, the image has a high resolution. This shows that [PTT Messenger] is a very good product,” Yıldırım said.
