Now that Fall Guys has become free-to-play, people can finally get their pesky friends to play the game. But what's playing with friends without voice chat? Read on to learn how players can enable the feature and vie for a podium finish.
Twitter user FGPancake shared alleged screenshots of a leak last month which claimed that the new Free For All update would bring the much requested feature to the multiplayer game. As it stands, Mediatonic has delivered by adding voice chat to Fall Guys in the latest update.
How to enable Voice Chat in Fall Guys
With the game being released on so many platforms for free, except Steam, playing the game with friends has never been easier. Enabling voice chat can indubitably accentuate gameplay. Here is a quick and easy way to do it.
Players can go to the settings menu in the top right corner of the main menu. From there, they must select 'Audio' which should be the first option.
Under the heading Party Voice Chat, players will find an option to turn on Party chat. They will have to click on it to move ahead.
The game will subsequently open a pop-up dialogue box as a warning. Players should then click 'Don't show this dialogue again' to stop it from popping up every time they enable or disable voice chat. They can change the Talk mode from 'Open Mic' to 'Push to talk' depending on their preference.
Just like that, players can now talk to their friends in the party chat. They cannot talk to people outside their party for now, which is probably for the best considering there are dozens of players onscreen on various occasions.
Voice chat in Fall Guys has been a long-requested feature and ever since the game came out in August of 2020, fans have been clamouring for its incorporation. They quickly realised that tumbling through the colourful obstacle courses would be more enjoyable if they could hear their friends rage during the game. Suffice to say, the free-for-all update has been welcomed by the Fall Guys community.
