Been having trouble communicating with your fellow crewmates in Among Us? A new option in the game will now make it easier to swiftly talk to your fellow friends (or impostors)!
The developers of the game have released a Version 2021.2.21 update, which adds a special “Quickchat” function into the game. In the Switch version, players will be able to access this function by simply holding the “R” button and moving their analog stick around a menu wheel (as shown above).

While it’s certainly not a perfect substitute for actual voice chat, this new feature definitely looks handy for Switch players who don’t want to deal with a clunky keyboard to speak up in the game. Hopefully it levels the playing field a little!
