So you have a stereo headset, and the mic is straddled in front of your head. Your device drivers are all set up, and you are ready to talk via VOIP. You proceed to play your game, but… Wait a minute, how exactly do you talk? Here are some ways to talk to other players while playing.

 

Discord

Discord is a chat-and-voice app that focuses on gamers. Here, people are divided into channels and servers, allowing the users to change their audience according to their location on the globe. This is further maximized by the fact that the channels are divided into games, so if you’re in a proximity of gamers that like League of Legends, you’re bound to find people with good ping rates with you, and from there, you and a few pals could prepare a room for yourselves on Steam.

 

Teamspeak

This is similar to Discord, but is somehow set up more similarly to Skype. Channels are present, but more importantly, it can be used with other things outside of gaming. Teamspeak servers can be rented, and customer service is 24/7.

 

Steam Friends

Though more specific to Steam, this is nonetheless effective because it is connected to the Steam Overlay. With the push of a keybind (by default Shift+Tab), one may start a voice conversation, or chat whenever the gamer is playing a game that uses Steam.

 

Facebook Messenger

Since this is based on a social media website, there will be some restrictions, such as how switching to the chat panel isn’t as quick as the Steam Overlay. Still, this could be effective in certain scenarios when no other VOIP option is available, especially since it does not require a setup.

 

Using your mobile phone

If all else fails, why not?
