Anybody with a Nintendo Switch will be well aware of the features that the console is lacking, or is at least well behind the curve in.

Arguably, the feature that stands out more than most is the sub-par online functionality, which oftentimes struggles to work and has many key aspects missing – including voice chat.

Thankfully, when it comes to the newest MOBA in town, Pokemon Unite, The Pokemon Company has foreseen that this is likely to cause some major issues, especially when communication is key to success.

So, here is how you can enable, disable and use voice chat in Pokemon Unite.

Do You Need to Download The Nintendo Online Voice Chat App?

Fortunately, no.

Much like the popular battle royale titles Apex Legends and Fortnite, Pokemon Unite will have voice chat built into the game, without the need for any awkward and cumbersome apps.

How To Turn On/Off Voice Chat in Pokemon Unite

As stated, one of the keys to success in a MOBA is collaboration and teamwork and therefore, the voice chat functionality is great. However, for some, connecting a headset up and chatting with others is less than an ideal situation. Thankfully, we have the solution for both.

To turn voice chat on or off in Pokemon Unite, you first need to go to the menu by pressing the X button

Then, scroll to the bottom and settings. Once in settings, stay on the system settings option and scroll down – there you will see the ability to toggle voice chat on and off and is free for you to choose.

If you’re playing the game for the first time, be aware, it starts as on, so if you want them off, be sure to change the setting before you jump in to a battle.
