We need voice chat ingame on consoles this is something that needs to be added.
I have not heard anything about this which is a big concern.
There is voice chat in game. Works on xbox one
Would be awesome to have it also on PC version. Steam could do the job well IMO, but it isn't implemented yet. Ok there're also various voice chat software, but not everyone have those installed...
Would like to see a normal textchat like on PC
I support this notion. There is no mic function in this game on ps4, you'd have to be friends or in your own psn party chat. It should work like in Gt5/6 which had in lobby/race mic chat integrated from launch. Gt5 came out 6 years ago on the ps3.... so I'd say it's pretty unacceptable for this game not to have voice chat on ps4 in 2016. But thats not the only thing online gameplay is lacking right now, we are also waiting for news to be released in the next week for the plan to add custom lobbies. This game has about as much online content as a free psn game at the moment
Is chat integrated into Assetto Corsa on xbox, or is it some xbox application/function working independently of the game?
One thing I'll note, is that the PS Messages app for iPhone and probably Android works really well as a substitute. It's very easy to find people you're playing with in-game and send PSN messages real quick from the phone.
Really hope something is done about this..Still nothing being mentioned about it anywhere.
There is no need to wait. Just use what is available now, such as Skype and Hangouts, even Discord or TeamSpeak. I've even known drivers to use their cell phones, but watch your charges. If you must, even Google Voice is free, if you are in the US.
The last time that I checked, their free versions all have enough headroom to group 16 drivers in a conversation.
I understand they are plenty of options for a group but when its open lobbies there are no options for communication to other players other than messaging outside assetto(ps message etc)would be awesome to have a chat within the lobby so u can chat to all at once.
How many console racing sims have chat in open lobbies?
All you would get is a bunch of weenies playing crappy music in their background or doing sound effects with their voice.
Let's see what we get with private lobbies first.
Almost all console games have ingame chat with the option to mute players if u choose to do so.
