Some people believe that the new mod for Among Us game called the proximity voice chat mod is the greatest mod the game has ever gotten. Here is the way to use it on mobile and PC and the reason why should everyone be using it.
How do you install the proximity chat in Among Us?
Actually, the game does not have a proximity chat option just yet, but here is a simple guide that will help you to get it. For now, it is only able to be achieved via the community mod, meaning it is not made by the developer of Among Us called InnerSloth. Even though it is not made by the creator and the developer of the game, it works fine with the game.
In order to use the proximity chat in Among Us, the first thing that you will need to do is to simply go to the Crew link to download the latest application from it and install it. Here is the link that will take you to the Crew link https://github.com/ottomated/CrewLink. Then, choose the newest version of the app. For those who have no idea, there is usually a text written “Latest” next to it. Once you have found it, run the program and install the app. Do not forget to choose options, and choose mic and speaker output device. Feel free to choose either voice activity or push to talk. The first one is recommended here since the proximity chat works really well with it.
You are able to give the specific keys if you want to deafen your comms and push to talk, in case you want to use it. Apparently, there will be another section with a community voice server IP address that can be used by you and your lobby. You can just get the default IP address and run the game along with the application.
How does the thing called Crew link work?
Crew link is the name of a third party app. Despite being the third party app, it offers you all the tools to make the proximity chat in the game enabled. It is such an unfortunate thing for the mobile users as this app does not work with the mobile version, so they have to use the purchased Among Us copy from Steam.
Once it is installed, all players in your party will need to run the same app to enable the proximity chat. Doing so will enable the proximity chat in your lobby. Apart from that, you are also able to make your own private server with it. There is a video on Youtube shared by TroubleChute. The video consists of the guide to make your own private server for those who want some privacy. Once the server is made, then all that should be done is to share the IP address with your friends and they would join your session.
Keep in mind that the avatar of everyone should show up in the Crew link lobby. If the are able to be seen on it then the game can go live, as you have successfully enabled the proximity chat.
What is the reason behind the fact that the proximity voice chat mod is perfect for Among Us?
The proximity voice chat mod for Among Us is really good for increasing suspense and making the game more interesting. The existence of the limited range means the characters will not be able to communicate across the whole map, inserting a dash of realism to the experience. Aside from that, it is also possible for the players to hear the others before they usually see anyone, a great feature that can also help to raise up the tension.
In the case when voice chat has been used for cheating in Among us, it is a good way to stop cheaters in the game by having everyone use the same voice chat mod. It is good except when people are playing on mobile and do not have access to the proximity voice chat mod of the game. Basically, there is really no reason not to use it.
There are a lot of reasons why you need to use the proximity voice chat mod of Among Us and a few reasons to not to use it.
It is normal for modding any kind of game to be complicated, hence the issue might occur. You have a few things to check if the mod does not work or does not start up. If you are facing this kind of situation, first of all, you will have to make sure that everyone is using the newest version of the mod, which can be done by checking for new releases, and making sure that everyone is playing on the newest non-beta patch for the Among Us game as well. The second thing that you need to make sure is everyone has a microphone and keyboard plugged in and detected by the mod.
Actually, the proximity chat mod itself also allows the players to adjust some of their options, such as changing their connected voice server. A set of numbers that comes with the mod is the server of the modmakers and it does have a limited capacity.
For those who are having a hard time connecting to or using the voice server, you may want to consider setting up your own voice server by following this link https://github.com/ottomated/CrewLink-server and scrolling down the guide. The thing may include installing the other programs so that the private voice server can be established and operated. However, it should at least allow for the stable use of the Among US proximity chat mod.
There are a lot of mods related to Among Us. Some of them are Among Us Solo Mode, Among Us Zombie Mode, the 100 Players Mode, and many more. However, most of them are tweaks and have some limits, which is really different compared to the proximity chat mod.
