The voice chat feature is finally about to ship in the game. The new feature was added to the PBE for players to test and work out the final kinks.
As soon as a player joins your party, you’ll both be dropped into the same voice channel. This means that you can’t join voice chat with random on your team like Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch. You’ll only communicate with those in your premade party.
From there, you can see all of the players in your voice channel through a new window that will appear in the bottom right corner of your client.
This window is also where you can change your voice settings, such as controlling the volume of each player in the channel. Unlike other windows within the client, you can still control voice settings from this panel when you’re in champ select. Don’t worry, if you don’t want to join voice channels automatically upon forming parties, there’s an option to turn it off.
There will be a small window next to the mini map in-game that appears after clicking a small voice icon next to the camera lock icon. Just like in the client before the game, this is where you can see players in your channel, as well as control certain settings.
This new voice chat feature isn’t shipping in Patch 8.5, despite being in the 8.5 PBE cycle. But we aren’t “too far out” from live release, according to Riot.
In real we can’t waiting a long time to test the voice chat feature in game.
