Tell Us: How Do You Feel About Nintendo’s Lack of Integrated Voice Chat?

By | October 7, 2020

Hey, listen! We love hearing your feedback on Nintendo Voice Chat, and now you once again have the chance to actually let us hear your beautiful voices on NVC.At the bottom of this article, you will find an option that lets you share a brief video with us and the IGN community, powered by audio and video commenting tool, Yappa.

We just learned Monster Hunter Rise will not have integrated voice chat for the Nintendo Switch

, or via the Nintendo Switch Online App. We want as many NVC fans as we can get to answer this question for next week’s episode:

How do you feel about the Nintendo Switch not having an integrated party chat feature, like PS4 and Xbox One have? Does it affect you much, if at all?

Bonus: Have you used the Nintendo Switch Online App for voice chat or integrated voice chat in games it’s available for, like Fortnite? Let us know!

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Create a Yappa account or sign in with a Facebook, Google, Disqus, or LinkedIn account.
  • Look for the video commenting box at the bottom of our articles on both desktop and mobile web. Note that the feature is currently not available on our mobile apps.
  • Hit the green bar with the speech bubble icon, allow access to your mic and camera if your permission settings require that step.
  • You can choose between audio and video recording. We’d prefer video to see your face (and only your face, please — although Samus and Master Chief helmets or God of War face paint, etc. are cool with us), but you can use the audio-only option if you’re having a bad hair day.
  • When you can see your face, hit record to start recording your video. Hit stop when you’re done. You can leave a message that’s up to 45 seconds long.
  • You can rewatch your video and then choose to cancel or post.
  • If you’d rather upload a video you recorded separately, you can use the Upload Media function to do so. This’ll be handy to show off your amiibo or classic games collections. But please, no copyrighted content.
  • You can watch and share videos from fellow commenters by clicking on their icons and you can follow contributors you like as well.

Still have questions? You can learn more details about the new commenting system. And, please remember to follow our guidelines for commenting.

Now go and Get the Thing!
