Riot Games to Record In-Game Valorant Voice Chat

Valorant Voice Chat

Do you enjoy playing Valorant? If so, you should be aware that Riot Games will begin recording in-game voice chat in order to combat abusive players and cheating, as well as develop an automated system dedicated to analyzing Voice Communication.

Riot Games has just updated its Privacy Policy and Terms of Service while playing the game, which will go into effect on July 13. They stated that it “allows us to record and evaluate in-game voice communications when a report for that type of behavior is submitted.”

They also added that:
“Voice evaluation would provide a way to collect clear evidence that could verify any violations of behavioral policies before we can take any action,” which should limit abuse, and “help us share back to players why a particular action resulted in a penalty,” 

Some players frequently hurl racial slurs, scream obscenities, and abuse the game by exploiting hacks in Player vs. Player games. Reporting the offending player is a better approach since Riot Games may easily ban them from voice chat—or from Valorant altogether.

The aforementioned changes will be introduced initially for testing in English-speaking players in North America, and will shortly be implemented globally. According to the firm, the data gathered during the testing phase would be used to “help train our language models and get the tech in a decent enough place for a beta launch later this year.”
