Voice communication allows gaming to transcend to the next level. It’s one thing to play a multiplayer game with your friends – it’s something else when you can talk with your friends while playing.

TeamSpeak 3: The Original Cross-Platform Voice Chat For Gaming Teams and Clans

I’m a big fan of voice communication when it comes to gaming. Wearing a headset while gaming adds a social element that makes the gaming experience that much better. While TeamSpeak may have started off as a solution for competitive gaming teams to discuss strategy and tactics in real-time, it has evolved into something beyond the bare essentials. It is used by casual gamers and fierce e-sports enthusiasts alike. TeamSpeak is a great program for talking with your gamer friends.

Razer Comms: A New Free Voice Chat For PC Gamers

Voice communication is a fantastic bit of technology that truly complements the fast-paced nature of multiplayer gaming. It frees up your hands from typing out long messages, allowing you to chat in real-time without any sacrifice in game play. Established gaming brand, Razer, has recently come out with a great new voice communication program for free. Even though it is still in beta, Razer Comms puts up a formidable bit of competition even against the alternatives that have been around for many years.

Add The World’s Largest Social Network & Online Game To Pidgin

Add The World’s Largest Social Network & Online Game To Pidgin

With MSN (or Windows Live Messenger) being recently laid to rest and Skype not offering a protocol for us all to connect through, it’s safe to say that all-purpose messengers like Pidgin are slowly falling out of favor. Nevertheless, it’s still my all-time favorite and – although it’s ancient – I am still a firm believer in AIM as a messenger. I still use it and many of my friends still use it. Text-based IMing is all I really care for and AIM gets the job done.

Trillian Is Still One Of The Best Chat Clients Around, Even On The iPad [iOS]

Do you love using your iPad as a communication device? Apple’s tablet is great for chatting because it’s small enough to carry around and big enough to type with comfortably. If you are looking for a handy way to chat with friends on your iPad, you should give Trillian a try. It’s been one of the most prevalent chat clients for years, and its creators consistently add new features and improvements that make it a serious contender for one of the best IM clients on iOS, or any platform for that matter.

How To Chat On Facebook From The Comfort Of Your Desktop

From the first days of public Internet, it’s been a long and winding road for chat. From Web chats that were nothing but forums, to ICQ and IRC, to MSN Messenger and Google Talk, and finally – the chat most of us use today – Facebook chat. To me, chat’s evolution is a bit sad, really. As old as ICQ and IRC look today, they were both chat protocols and programs I really enjoyed using.

Skype For Mac: Video Call All Your Friends, Apple-Style [Mac]

There are already a few articles on MakeUseOf about the features available for Mac’s Skype such as its group video client, experience-enhancing tips, and even some shortcuts that you may not know about. However, we’ve never really talked about the app itself. Overall, Skype for Mac is an app that performs in a solid manner, and I have a feeling that I will end up using it time and time again.

Empathy: Use One Application To IM Chat On All Networks [Linux]

There are still plenty of people who use instant messaging networks to talk with each other, as it’s very quick to exchange messages or ask a simple question. In fact, there are plenty of corporations who run their own networks, to make communication between employees a snap. Therefore, it’s good to have a capable instant messaging client by your side so that you can keep in touch with just about everyone.
