Hi, I was wondering if someone from EA staff could address this issue, as I've posted several times about it already. Coming from Xbox to PC this issue is really disappointing, as is the lack of feedback I've received so far.
On Xbox you have the ability to put the voice chat in your headset and the game sounds in your loudspeakers.
There is no way to do that on PC, because the game does not support multiple audio devices. This makes voice chat completely useless for me on PC. My loudspeakers are simply not good for voice chat (they're wide bandwidth, so everyone's voice is boomy and unclear), and my headset is not good for game sound (it's a model that's made for voice communications, so voice is always clear but the game sounds bad). Voice chat is perfect on Xbox. Could you please address this issue?
This has nothing to do with headset type or model, it's the same on all headsets on PC, and it's a software limitation of Apex Legends which needs to be addressed by the dev team.
One of my previous posts about this is here:
Well, if you have ever even played the Xbox version then you would know that the Xbox Apex Legends in-game voice chat is actually extremely good.
If you're playing with friends, you can (and should) use a 3rd party chat app such as Discord.
Not only is it vastly superior quality (higher bitrate), but you'd also be able to output chat to a different audio device.
It's a real shame Apex's in-game chat is such poor quality; I thought we'd be past the days of having to rely upon the unnecessary tedium of 3rd party apps for something as simple as voice chat.
I'm not, I don't know how to find people who play Apex on PC. I want to play with random people and have good audio quality. I know discord is pretty good, but its existence doesn't help me further sadly.
Hygieux I play Apex on Xbox every day and the in-game chat is much worse than Xbox Party Chat. It cuts out when you switch from lobby to game and vice versa, you can't verbally invite people to play another game with you after finishing one, you have to go through the invite button or find them on xbox and send a message, and the voice quality itself is much worse.
