Destiny 2 – How to Join Voice Chat

Like any team-based game, voice chat is an essential component of Destiny 2. Whether you’re a seasoned player or new to the game, this guide will provide you with valuable instructions on how to set up and join voice chat.

How to Join Voice Chat in Destiny 2

In many games, voice chat allows you to communicate with your team during PvE activities and coordinate strategies in PvP matches. Fortunately, Destiny 2 has its own built-in voice chat system that enables you to communicate in both the Fireteam chat and Team chat whenever necessary.

However, it’s important to note that the voice chat feature in Destiny 2 is initially disabled by default. Therefore, you need to enable it by adjusting your settings. Navigate to the “Settings” tab in the menu and click on the “Social” tab.

In the “Social” tab, you’ll find the Voice Chat settings. Make sure you have the “Voice Chat” option set to “Enabled”. By default, this option should already be enabled, allowing you to hear other players in the game. However, the reason why Destiny 2’s voice chat might appear less active compared to other games is due to the “Opt-in Team Chat” feature.

Opt-In Team Chat

Even with the voice chat enabled, you need to manually opt-in to the voice chat every time you join a new activity. If you fail to do so, you won’t be able to hear anyone speaking. This opt-in requirement is one of the reasons why you may rarely encounter Guardians with active microphones during your gaming sessions.

To join the Team Chat, simply pull out your Ghost and utilize the arrow keys on your PC or the D-pad on your controller to switch between Fireteam Chat and Team Chat.

Fireteam Chat is intended for communicating with members of your Fireteam, while Team Chat allows you to communicate with your team during matchmade activities.

If you want to streamline the process, you have the option to go back to the Voice Chat Settings and enable “Automatic Opt-in When Solo”. This will automatically join the Team Voice Chat every time you enter an activity without a Fireteam.

Although many players have shifted to using Discord as a replacement for Fireteam chat, you should still be able to find players who understand the features of Team Voice Chat and use them effectively during your gameplay.

That’s how you use the Voice Chat features of Destiny 2!
