In certain spaces you can talk to other persons in the space via the voice chat feature.
Use the voice chat
If the voice chat is activated in a space, you will be asked to agree to the use of your microphone when you enter. Please click "Allow" here for voice chat to work properly.
Please always use a headset when participating in voice chat to prevent noise interference.
Click on the arrow next to the microphone to select your preferred input device (microphone).
Important: The speaker you have selected as output device in your system settings will also be used by the voice chat.
(Windows: taskbar at the bottom , Mac: menu bar at the top )
If a red light is displayed above the microphone at the bottom, your microphone is muted. Click on the microphone button to unmute it.
When a green light is displayed above the microphone at the bottom, your microphone is on. Click on the microphone button to mute the microphone.
When the push-to-talk mode is active, you have to hold down the microphone button to talk (you can also hold down the T key instead). You can tell if the mode is active or not by the fact that the microphone button is only active for a short time when you click it and then immediately deactivates again.
If the microphone button is dark, your microphone is muted. Click on the microphone button to unmute it.
When the microphone button is highlighted in color, your microphone is on. Click on the microphone button to mute the microphone.
