How to talk on Fortnite Xbox

After explaining what you need to use the voice chat feature on Xbox, I'd say it's time to get to the heart of the guide. Below are directions for using Fortnite's internal voice chat and Xbox Live party functionality. For the tutorial I used a Xbox series s, but the indications I will give you should also apply to the other Microsoft console models.

Via the game settings

The quickest way to play Fortnite by talking to your friends is to use the feature directly voice chat implemented in the game.

Once connect headphones to the pad via jack cable or connected a wireless adapter / receiver to the console, usually via USB port, and the headset is turned on (there is no support for Bluetooth accessories), possibly extracting the microphone from the body (or connected to the headphones) and checked that any physical button for the microphone volume (usually located along the headphone cable) is active, setup is very simple.

In any case, if you have problems with the use of headphones, I recommend that you go to the settings console (gear icon) and access the section first Generali and following that Output audio e volume. Here you will find the option Group chat output, which I recommend you set to Headphones.

For the rest, just start Fortnite, go to the main page of the mode Battle Royale, first il pulsating Menu (hamburger icon) of the controller and select the option SETTINGS.

At this point, using the key RB of the pad, go to the tab marked byspeaker icon. Here you will find all the audio settings, including the section dedicated to voice chat.

To be precise. at the top is the section VOLUME, through which you can manage the volume of the option VOICE CHAT. Further down, however, there are various other options, from enabling this feature to the voice chat method. In the latter case, you can choose between MICROPHONE OPEN, so everyone always feels, or PRESS AND TALK, which allows you to be heard only when you press and hold a special button.

Going down the menu again you will find the option to choose who you want to talk to during the games played with matchmaking upon completion, therefore with unknown users. You can choose whether to be heard only by yours group or from all people in the game. You can also decide whether to view the indications when other users speak.

In short, in the menu in question there is just everything you need. If you want some advice, Xbox is better from my point of view activate chat, keep the open microphone (you can also close it using the physical button if your headphones allow it), set Group as regards the public matches and keep activate the alerts related to voice chat.

By doing this, you will see that everything will work as it should as soon as you enter the game. Speaking of which, I guess you already know everything since you play Fortnite, but for invite other people just press the button to play A of the pad into one of the team blanks which you can find on the main screen and select theamico you want to invite.

For example, you can activate the voice overlay, as well as press on the panel options and set the room as accessible only by invitation. From here you can also turn off the voice for everyone and use the option Switch to game chat.
