Voice Chat Banner.png
Communication when playing MOBAs like Pokemon UNITE helps players to make better decisions. Using voice chat serves this purpose. Read on to learn how to use voice chat in Pokemon UNITE, as well as the best apps to use.

Is Voice Chat Available?

Voice Chat is available in-game for both Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. However, a separate voice chat device (mic) is required.

How to Use Voice Chat

Available In-Game, But Not Working

Currently, although the feature has been implemented in-game, our team was not able to use the voice chat feature. We recommend using an external app for voice chat rather than attempting to use the in-game feature.

If you have had success using the in-game voice chat, be sure to leave a comment and let us know how it went for you!

Available at Trainer Level 6

Headphones with Microphone is Required

Headphones and earphones with a microphone function are required to talk in in-game voice chat. If a player doesn't have a microphone, they can only hear the other person's voice.

Players Can Choose Which Teammates They Can Talk To

Choose Teammates to Talk
Voice chat allows players to choose who they want to talk to. They can also mute the other party's voice by pressing the plus button during the match, so players can use it when they do not want to talk to anyone other than their friends.

Best Apps for Voice Chat

Players can utilize apps that support voice chat to better communicate with their team. There are many voice chat apps available for multiple platforms, but there are a few apps that gamers trust and enjoy the most.

    Benefits of Voice Chat

    The greatest benefit of voice chat is being able to communicate better with your team. Although there is quick chat during the match, talking with the team is easier and faster. However, things can also get toxic when players fight each other using voice chat.
