Voice chat Among Us proximity: how to play with this mode?

voice chat Among Us proximity

Some feared that Wave Among Us would quickly fade after its runaway success in 2020. But this werewolf-like multiplayer game continues to renew its offering. A new game mode has been introduced with the Among Us voice chat. This allows you to talk to other players at any time on lobby, as long as you are close to them. This new feature greatly enhances the gameplay experience, which can quickly become repetitive over time. While some people use voice chat to talk and joke with their friends, it also adds a new strategic dimension. Crewmates can use it to take and share information. Impostors can give false information and totally brain the innocent.

It should be noted that the Among Us voice chat was not developed by Innersloth. The studio is quite busy with its 4th map, Airship. Several individuals have developed their own versions. For our part, we have tested and used theOttomated one. It works and has several advantages. It is very easy to install and above all, you don't have to spend a single cent. Totally free, its only drawback is that it only works on PC. Only players who have bought the game on Steam or those who use our tip to play Among Us for free can access it. Sorry for mobile players, you'll have to wait a little longer.

How to install the Among Us proximity voice chat

The game already has a chat, but it only allows you to write in it. If you look hard enough, you can only find two interests.

  • In NVC (no voice chat)games, which are usually found on community Discord servers. However, you can only write during emergency meetings
  • By the dead to pass the time once the impostor has killed them

The voice chat Among Us is much more interesting. But to benefit from it, you have to use a third-party application, as it is not (yet) integrated into the game. We recommend using the free CrewLink software. But players can also choose alternative solutions such as Mumble.

Time required: 5 minutes.

The CrewLink interface looks like this.

After opening the game, it is up to you to create a lobby or join one by copying the game code. In both cases, your little astronaut will then appear in the lobby of CrewLink. You should have the same colour and clothes. Checkpoint: Only players who appear in lobby CrewLink can use the Among Us voice chat. Those who are not in lobby have a problem and need to fix it (game not up to date, bad version...). Currently, players have access to CrewLinkversion 1.2.0.

Final adjustments

Before starting the game, some last little adjustments can also be useful. They can all be found by clicking on the small gear at the top left of the CrewLink interface.

Adjusting the sensitivity of the chat is particularly important. Ideally, you should only be able to hear other players if you are in the same room. Depending on your preferences, you can also set the Among Us voice chat to push-to-talk mode.

Hi, thanks for the article! However, CrewLink does not run my game (which I have on Blue Stack). Any ideas?

On BlueStacks, you have a feature that is built right into the emulator 🙂
