Is there voice chat in Dead by Daylight?

Unfortunately, no, Dead by Daylight does not have voice chat, and it’s unlikely that it will receive the feature any time soon, if at all.

Behaviour Interactive responded to this popular request back in 2020 on their official Twitter account, stating that “we have no plan to add a voice chat…”

If you’re playing with a group of friends, however, this can be alleviated somewhat by utilizing applications like Discord on PC, and PlayStation or Xbox players can form parties on their respective platforms, too, giving you the chance to coordinate your strategies a little more.

Another method that we’d recommend using if you’re a solo Survivor looking to get a bit more information on your team and the Killer’s location is the Perk ‘Kindred’. With this in your loadout, whenever you or a fellow Survivor is hooked, you’ll be able to see each other’s positions along with the Killer if they’re in a specified range whilst that person remains hooked.

So, there you have it – that’s everything you need to know about voice chat in Dead by Daylight.
