Discord and Nintendo’s Voice Chat

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…!

While single-player games are amazing, especially since Rachel and I have each other as sometimes-snarky cheerleaders for each other whenever we play those games, multiplayer games can be so much fun. With the online capabilities of nowadays, being able to play with friends who don’t live around the corner is fantastic. Voice chatting definitely helps, but the platform needs to be done well…

How many of you actually use Nintendo’s voice chat? You know, the Nintendo Switch Online app on your phone? We personally haven’t. We’ve heard it wasn’t that great…

We do use Discord, however, mostly just between each other when we’re working in different rooms, but we’ve also played around with Discord’s voice chat while playing online games together. Recently, there was an article on My Nintendo News that mentioned how Discord would be willing to talk with Nintendo about powering Nintendo’s voice chat, and it honestly sounds like it would be a good partnership.

The article itself didn’t mention many details, but from what I’ve heard of the Nintendo Voice Chat, it needs an overhaul. Discord is a popular choice amid gamers nowadays, as forums, video, and voice chat. With all the games that Nintendo is bringing to the Switch, especially multiplayer games, having a well-working voice chat system is crucial.

 

Do you use Nintendo’s Voice Chat app? How well do you think Discord would work as Nintendo’s voice chat platform?
