But how do you mount a voice chat next to a game of Among Us? We've put together everything you need to know, along with some extra tips. If you're new to the game, you can also check out how to download Among Us for free and see if Among Us is coming to PS4, Xbox and Switch.
How to start a group chat in Among Us
The first thing you need to know is that Among Us doesn't yet have a built-in voice chat system. There is a text chat room that can be accessed throughout the game, but this is all available at the time of writing.
If you want to chat voice chat with other players, you will have to host a third-party audio call. You can use the one that suits you and your friends – Discord, Google Meet, Messenger, WhatsApp or even Skype. If you are using the PC, you can do this by simply opening it in the browser and running along with the game. On mobile, the app version should work well along with Among Us.
If you are playing on PC, we suggest changing Among Us to window instead of full screen to facilitate switching between the two – this can be done by opening the game by going to the settings (by clicking on the wheel icon – the second at the bottom of the screen), selecting the graphics and switching the entire screen to 'off'.
Everyone will need the open software on their PC/phone and a working microphone whatever they are using. We recommend using headphones to prevent any game sound effects from being picked up by the microphone.
If you are playing with strangers from an online group, such as the Among Us Discord server, we recommend using Discord for your voice chat because you can easily use a pseudonym and do not need to provide personal details such as your email address, full name, or phone number. Alternatively, just stay with the built-in text chat if you want to be more cautious.
If you are broadcasting the game on Twitch,make sure that your audio call is being picked up in our sound output settings and make sure to balance your microphone levels, players on call and game/music sound effects
Finally – and most importantly – get into the habit of silencing yourself when you're not in the elimination part of the game! You don't want to accidentally spoil the game (something this author has done in the past), so click the mute button on the calling software you're using or manually change your microphone if you can.
What is Among Us?
Among Us is a game that was created in 2018 by InnerSloth, a game studio in the United States. At its launch, only the mobile version was made available (Android and iOS) and at the end of the same year the PC version was developed by its creators.
What is the objective of the game?
The objective of the game is considered simple and is not the first to use the premises that are proposed. Among Us is a multiplayer game, that is, you must play with other people, there is no possibility to play alone. Players meet in groups to start the game, and in a group it is necessary to have a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 participants.
As soon as the app opens, the player has a few options: he can create his own room and call friends or family to play, or enter rooms that have been created before.
Host: if the player wants to host a match;
Public: if he wants to play in any public room;
Private: it is necessary to enter a code provided by the Host to access the match.
The match takes place inside a spaceship, where there is a group of crew members trying to survive in space. In the middle of this group there is an “impostor”, who aims to eliminate the other participants. The imposter is chosen at random and, depending on the game's configuration, a game may have more than one imposter.
