A week after the cross-platform update, the new Destiny 2 update now also adds cross-play voice chat.
Bungie posted the patch notes for Destiny 2’s 184.108.40.206 Hotfix, activating cross-play voice chat and GameSpot reports. The voice chat feature comes right after the start of Season 15, called Season of the Lost.
At the bottom of the patch notes, the “General” section says “Cross Play voice chat enabled” as a dot. Bungie lists communication issues that don’t work as intended for Xbox players. Those problems are:
- Xbox players hear voices and get invites from anyone, even when privacy settings are set to “friends” or “in-game friends.”
- Xbox players will hear voices from non-Xbox players even when “You can communicate outside of Xbox with voice and text” is set to “blocked”.
- Xbox players hear other Xbox players in Fireteam Chat or Team Chat, even if those players are muted.
Bungie announced that cross-play would officially come out with Season 15 in Destiny 2. But that “cross-platform voice chat is not possible.” Bungie cited “late development issues” as to why cross-play voice chat was not available when cross-play came out.
The feature is live, and Guardians can talk to each other cross-platform about which Exotic they got their hands on now.
