AdvanceTC Testing Satellite-Ready, Omnimode Voice Communication App, StarzChat

Unique combination of secure, federated instant messaging with Push-to-Talk radio comm, live video broadcasts, and emergency location sharing

NEW YORK, NY, May 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- AdvanceTC Limited (NSX:A88, OTCQB:ATCLF), Satellite and mobile communication innovation leader, today announced the pre-launch testing of its StarzChat integrated and satellite-ready, voice chat platform, soon to be available free for iOS and Android, Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Amidst a surge in downloads of alternative, encrypted, voice communication apps such as Signal and Telegram due to intensifying consumer and business security concerns, StarzChat is a groundbreaking communication platform combining secure, instant messaging with enhanced capabilities like Push-To-Talk radio communication, live video broadcasting, emergency location sharing, and satellite communications when used with the XPLORE X7U satellite smartphone. Whilst currently in beta, it will be available in one, easy-to-use application and service platform for real-time communities and for critical communications anywhere.

“The recent valuation of Discord validated the potential of this market. Discord app's differentiator is its high-quality audio and it was positioned as free voice and text chat for gamers needing seamless voice communication with team members," stated AdvanceTC CEO, C.P. Loi. "In order to win users and expand market share, it's time to innovate new channels that combine the best of messaging with full media capabilities."

When combined with AdvanceTC’s Android-based satellite smartphone XPLORE X7, Android users can unlock added features like Digital Mobile Ration (DMR), first responder and military oriented Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA), emergency location sharing, body or head-mounted live camera features, and satellite messaging when out of range with terrestrial networks.

About StarzChat

StarzChat is an app that combines multiple modes of communication including direct messaging, creating group channels, video calling, Push-To-Talk, live video broadcasting and emergency location sharing. The StarzChat platform is equally suitable for public facing communication or for secure private networks. The Company is targeting release of the app to the general public by August 2021, upon the completion of the trial.
