Voice Communication

From Tanki Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Voice communication enables you to actually talk to other players in the game. It can be useful since all you have to do is talk - no pausing the game and typing in the chat to communicate with other players in a battle. Voice communication is commonly used by players in battle groups and clans participating in eSports activities. You can use voice communication with your friends to help coordinate an attack, plan an eSports activity, or just talk about yourselves! Unfortunately, Tanki Online doesn't yet have a voice communication system built inside the game. So you need to use a 3rd-party software for voice communication.

Below are some of the popular voice communication programs and details on how to install them, their features, etc.
