How to use and disable voice chat - Rocket League

Learn how to use voice chat in Rocket League or disable it if you don't want to use it.


Rocket League now features voice chat for players to use. Not only does this allow players to better coordinate, but it lets players chat and communicate in a game that previously only featured text chat. However, the voice chat options aren’t exactly easy to find in Rocket League, especially if you’re on certain platforms.

How to use and disable voice chat

The Rocket League voice chat options can be found in the Settings. There are actually two locations here that must be utilized, the Gameplay and Audio tab. For those that want to disable voice chat, you must go to Gameplay and under Voice Chat, select Disabled from the dropdown box. There are other options available for those that want to use the feature. Select the one that is appropriate for your needs.

For those have voice chat enabled, the Audio tab allows for greater control over the balance between the audio sources. It is here you can lower the voice chat volume if it’s too loud overall. This is useful if you’ve got particularly loud teammates and you can’t hear the other critical audio cues the game offers.

While there are voice chat controls on Rocket League on Steam, there are no voice chat options on the Epic Games Store version. No matter where you look, it doesn’t exist. Players that play Rocket League through EGS will need to stick to text chat if they want to communicate with their teammates or use external programs like Discord.

      Good god that game can be toxic. I quit playing for a couple years so decided to go at it.

      Of course I suck but I am playing in the casual que. I got screamed at by I believe both teams.

      Good times....🙄 The game should have voice off by default with a on screen popup giving you a shortcut to turn it on. Did I play anymore? nahhh, I got into it on launch and put around 50hrs in but that was ages ago. I'll take my old man gaming elsewhere thank you very much.

          It's amazing how salty quick chat can get too.

              This game made me admit to myself that I'm just too old for these ultra-competitive e-sports games. I just don't have the time to get any good at it and being perpetually awful doesn't sound like fun.

            You can turn on Tactical Quick Chat as well to reduce your sodium intake.

          Team chat only and maybe quick chat only as well. This is the way. The voice chat in Rocket League has always been terrible, both for quality and all the kiddies screaming.

          I'm terrible at letting the toxic chat get to me so I went team chat only a while ago and I've been playing better ever since.

          RL seems a little different, everything is on full display for your team and the other team to see at all times. If you make a mistake it's apparent immediately. CSGO or something your teammate covering long A isn't going to have a front row view immediately when you whiffed an AWP shot at B

      lol, no voice chat on EGS.

      tyvm, working as intended. =D

      Queuing into 3v3 with randos is already a dice roll, toxic chat makes an unfun game a session ending event somtimes. I've found that PC lobbies are more toxic due to people being able to type readily. Toxic Quick Chat is mostly amusing until that person also starts throwing the game.

      I've busted myself from Plat back down to Silver this month, broke back in to Gold. Been meaning to swing through the Shack RL Discord when my buddies aren't hollering for me to play something else.
