How To Voice Chat Your Party In Valorant
Last Updated: August 1, 2021
Are you not fond of talking to strangers in your Valorant game? Do you prefer only talking to people that belong to your party instead of the entire team? If so, you can enable the Party Voice Activation Mode or toggle the push-to-talk key for your party. Either way, our quick guide below will show you how to use both of these methods.
In Valorant, there are two ways multiple ways to communicate with your teammates. You can use Radio Commands, type in the text chat, or talk through the voice chat.
For us, using voice chat is the best way to convey information to your team. Using the microphone allows you to give out precise info about the enemy’s whereabouts and other stuff that can give you an advantage on the round.
When it comes to voice chat, you can either talk to your entire team or the ones inside your party only. If you’re wondering how to use the latter option, you can either use the keybind or change your voice activation options to automatic.
Either way, we’re here to help you. All you have to do is read on and follow our quick guide below.
How to change the party voice chat options on Valorant
By default, your voice activation option in Valorant is push-to-talk, and the key to using it is “U.” However, you can always change your voice chat preferences on your Audio Settings.
You can change the keybind for your party chat or set the in-game push to talk option to automatic. Either way, we’ll show you how to find your voice chat options on Valorant in our step-by-step tutorial below.
- Open the Valorant launcher on your computer, sign in to your account (if asked to do so), and start the game.
- Once you’re on the main menu, click the gear icon on the top-right corner and select Settings on the menu that appears in the middle of your screen.
- Head to the Audio tab and select Voice Chat.
- Look for Party Voice Activation Mode, and you can opt to set it as Automatic. On the other hand, you can edit your chat key bindings if you prefer push-to-talk.
- If you chose the latter option, look for the Voice Chat section and set the key you want to use for party voice chat. You can use your extra mouse buttons or one of your unused keys.
After changing your party voice chat settings, you can test it out with your friends during matches or custom lobbies. If your party finds your voice as loud, you can gradually adjust your mic volume.
If you accidentally messed up your voice chat key binds, you can always reset your controls to default and start over. So for those who prefer push-to-talk, we recommend using a key that you can use comfortably, without affecting your shooting, movement, or ability keys in the game.
To wrap it all up
Now that you know about using the voice party chat feature on Valorant, you can go ahead and talk to your friends without worrying about other teammates hearing your conversation. In this way, you can still convey crucial information in-game that can help you win rounds, and eventually, the match.
Aside from using the in-game voice party chat, you can also use a third-party app like Discord to talk with your friends. You can create a private server and invite your friends to a voice channel so that you can talk while waiting in loading screens or when you’re warming up on the Range.
