First Method To Unmute

When you are in-game and have already jumped from the plane, you might feel like your teammates are not hearing you. This is the case where they might be muted automatically. To unmute, head straight toward the Scoreboard menu.

For PlayStation players, press the touchpad in the middle.

In there, go to the Channels section. Under the heading “Game Channels”, you will see a tab “Squad”. Click on it to show all your teammates and your profile. Select your profile from the D-Pad on your controllers and the Arrow keys on the keyboard and unmute yourself.

When you hover over a teammate, a small window appearing under their name will say “Unmute” and also display the button with which you can unmute them. PlayStation players will press Square to unmute whereas Xbox players will press X. PC players can use Left Mouse Button (LMB).

Try using it and see if players are unmuted now.

Second Method To Unmute

The above procedure can be used to unmute players one by one. If you are looking to unmute them all at once, you can follow another quick method.

Go directly to the options menu by using the options button on your consoles and the Escape key on your keyboards. Go to settings. Scroll down to the Audio settings. In there you will see all Game Channels from where you can hear in-game.

Available Game Channels are All Lobby, Party Only, Friends Only, and Friends & Channels.

If you have selected the “All Lobby” option, then you can hear all the players that are currently in-game or in your lobby. The proximity chat lets you hear any player that is in a radius of 55 meters around you.

The “Party Only” option will unmute only the players that are in your squad. It won’t matter if you have added them or not. If they are inside your party, then they will be unmuted.

If you want to keep your options more restricted and want to have a fun time with your friends only, then you should choose the option “Friends Only”. This way, the people in your party who are not on your friend list are kept muted.

Problems with Unmuting

Sometimes the issue is not straightforward. Warzone 2 is still in its early phases, so a lot of bugs are unfixed. Here are some of the problems you might be facing with the voice chat:

Automatically Getting Muted

After unmuting your teammates, the game will automatically re-mute them for 10 to 15 minutes or even for a whole match and you won’t be able to unmute them again.

Getting Muted In Cross-Platform Servers

The major issue is in cross-playing servers when people on PlayStations are unable to hear the ones on Xbox and vice versa. The PS players can talk with each other only and are unable to converse with Xbox players.

Voice Chat Not Working During Match

If you are playing with your friends and are in a party together, you might notice that your voice chat is working fine in the lobby but when the match starts, the voice chat shuts down for everyone.

Solutions for Unmuting

Although the game still requires some updates to fix some major bugs in warzone 2 but here are some quick fixes that might solve your problem temporarily till the next update so you can have a good time playing with your friends.

Removing Players From Friend List

If you have added one of your teammates to your friend list and you are unable to unmute them, try unfriending them and then add them back. This might get rid of the glitch and your voice chat will get unmuted.

Cross-Play Communication

If you are in a cross-platform lobby, meaning that players on PlayStation and Xbox consoles are in your squad and you can’t hear them, Cross-play Communication might be turned off for you.

On your PlayStation, you can turn on Cross-play Communication by:

  1. Heading into Main Menu.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Go right by pressing R1 to reach settings.
  4. Move down to Account & Network.
  5. Turn on Crossplay.

For Xbox users, you will allow crossplay from your Xbox Main Menu which is outside warzone 2.

Turn on your Xbox. Then select General Settings > Online Safety & Family > Privacy & Online Safety > Xbox Privacy > View Details and Customize > Communication & Multiplayer > Cross-play Network.

In there, select Allow to continue.

PS Party Chat

If you are on a PlayStation console and your voice chat is muted when playing with PS Players only, you can alternatively use your PS Party chat outside warzone 2 if in-game voice chat is muted.

To connect with your teammates on PS Party, go to Home Screen Panel. Now either press the Up key on D-Pad or move your left controller stick up. You will see the Party option which is 5th from the right side with a headphone symbol.

In there, you can join public parties as well as create your private party. To create a private party, select “Create Party”. Set your party name to whatever you prefer. Set the member limit which is allowed in your party and then select Create Party once more.

Now that your party is created, to your right, you will see the Invite button, click on that to invite players to your PS Party. Note that you have to add your warzone teammates to your PS Friend List first.

PS Party works perfectly fine and your teammates will stay unmuted if you keep it that way.

Restart Warzone 2

Sometimes when you are having a problem unmuting, closing the game completely and then restarting it works fine. There is no proper explanation for this, but we have seen this work successfully for some players in the warzone community.

Final Remarks

Warzone 2 is famous for its standard Battle Royale in which 150 players fight in squads or solos to win. For modes like BR duos or trios, you need to communicate with your teammates to have each other’s back in intense fights.

If due to some wrong settings, you muted your squad members, then you can unmute them either from the Scoreboard menu or by turning voice chat on from audio settings.
