Is there proximity chat available in Pubg on the version of Xbox One and PS4?

Unfortunately, Pubg does not have proximity chat on the gaming consoles, including PlayStation and Xbox One. On the other hand, the PC version of the battle royale game supports the proximity voice chat. So, if you’re a user of PS4 or Xbox One, then there’s bad news for you. Till today, the developers at PUBG didn’t make the version of the game for gaming consoles that support the proximity chat. However, the PC version of the BR game has a chat feature that allows the players to chat with other players in real-time.

Furthermore, there are no upcoming updates or evidence that suggests that in the future there’ll be an update rollout that will feature the voice chat.

Interestingly, in the past, some die heart fans of PUBG started a petition that forced the PUBG Corporation to roll out the chat feature on the gaming consoles, such as Xbox One. All the efforts went in vain because the PUBG-owned Twitter handle tweeted that there aren’t any plans, recent or in the future, to give the voice feature to other players on Xbox One. We can assume the same in the case of PS4 that is also another gaming console. However, there’re still other unethical ways of using the PUBG proximity chat feature.

What is proximity chat in Pubg?

Before getting into the important part of the article, firstly we should all know about the proximity chat feature of PUBG. Basically, the proximity voice feature allows the players from different teams in the same match to have a chit-chat over the game, but within a limited and close space. In other words, if you are rushing towards the enemies, there’re chances that you might have a voice chat if you connect your mic to the world.

In the case of Pubg – a last-standing multiplayer game, there’s a proximity voice feature of chat, but only for the PC version. However, if the users of gaming consoles want to use this feature, they’ll have to use those old-fashioned and typical methods. The Pubg proximity chat means that all the 100 players within the game can talk in real-time, but with some restrictions. The restrictions are not very difficult; the players have to be close with one another in order to communicate. Moreover, for those who want to communicate with the Pubg proximity voice feature, the mics should be turned on to the option of “World.” In these simple steps, one can easily access the PUBG proximity chat.
