Headphones with Microphone Required

Pokemon UNITE - Headphones Required

You will need a compatible pair of headphones with a built-in microphone to use the Voice Chat feature. As long as your Nintendo Switch or mobile device recognizes the headphones you plugged in, you should be able to turn on the voice chat feature through the in-game settings.

How to Use Voice Chat

Voice Chat Settings

Incoming Outgoing
Team: All Hear all teammates. Talk to all teammates.
Team: Invited Hear all invited friends only. Talk to invited friends only.

Must Use Headphones Before Changing

You can only turn on the Voice Chat settings while you have headphones plugged in your device. If a player uses headphones that does not have a microphone, they can only turn on the Incoming option to hear their teammate's voices.

Must be Reactivated Every Match

Unlike other settings, Voice Chat settings do not save and must be turned on every match. We suspect that this is the reason why most players do not use Voice Chat, since it might waste a bit of time setting it up every game.

Can Mute Teammates

Pokemon UNITE - Voice Chat Mute
Players can mute individual teammates by going to the Battle Record screen and selecting their chat icon. This allows players to choose who they want to talk to without completely muting everyone.

If you get partnered up with a misbehaving teammate, you can report them by choosing Report Inappropriate Chat. We are uncertain what happens when a player is reported this way, but we know that it is best not to be on the receiving end of it.
