Among Us streamers often use Discord to communicate with each other instead of the usual in-game chat.

Voice communication through Discord is a lot more effective than communicating through in-game texts. However, enabling the Discord overlay in Among Us can be a complicated process.

Discord is a voice and text chatting platform. While anyone can use it for voice communication or chatting, Discord is widely popular among gamers due to its convenient and user-friendly interface as well as its clear voice quality.

Enabling the Discord overlay in-game allows players to observe which person is currently talking and helps to minimize distractions, both of which are crucial when playing Among Us.

This article offers a step-by-step guide on how to choose the ideal Discord overlay settings for Among Us.
