Valorant VC Recording

Valorant has always had issues with their in-game voice chat. Not with the quality, but on the vulgarity that is said through the mic. In an effort to combat disruptive behavior, Riot Games has recently updated its Privacy Notion and Terms of Service that will now allow voice communication to not only be recorded, but then evaluated if said communication has been reported.

This system will provide the moderation teams with clear evidence that could prove any violations of behavioral policies before action is taken. Not only that, but this will also allow Valorant to deliver the exact reasoning behind any action taken as a resulting penalty. This process will start on July 13 with a background launch of the voice evaluation system in North America/ English-only to train language models for a beta launch later this year.

Players shouldn't get too trigger happy with the report button just yet as the voice evaluation during this current period will not be used for disruptive behavior reports; that will begin with the beta. With all new tech, there are sure to be issues, but the end goal is to make Valorant a safer and more inclusive environment for everyone who chooses to play.
