Battlefield 2042 finally gets voice chat – a whole five months after launch


Battlefield 2042’s major 4.0 update is live, introducing over 400 bug fixes and gameplay rebalances, as well as new features that fans have been calling for since the multiplayer shooter launched last November.

Chief among them is in-game voice chat – or VoIP functionality, as it’s officially called. You’ll now be able to chat with the players in your Battlefield 2042 party or squad using a microphone. Previously, voice chat was totally absent from the game, requiring you to use in-game text chat or map pings to communicate with your fellow players. If you wanted to speak live, you’d have to use Discord, TeamSpeak, join a party on PlayStation or Xbox consoles, or use another third-party platform.
