Accessing Team Chat is very simple. It can help your teammates understand certain situations or allow for discussion while another teammate is attempting to clutch a round. To open the team chat function, just hit “Enter” on your keyboard.

How to All Chat in VALORANT

Using All Chat is used primarily to trash-talk your opponents and has very little function outside of that. You can use All Chat in VALORANT by holding “Shift” before pressing “Enter.”

The chat functions are nice to have but are ultimately unnecessary if you have a working mic. It’s nice to know how to use the chat functions in VALORANT, but good voice comms will beat out text any day of the week. Either way, if you’re stuck with the chat feature, it’s important to know how to use it. And fortunately, it’s easier than in-depth tweaks like setting up custom dot crosshairs, so you can start chatting right away!
