Can I Mute Text Chat in Overwatch 2? Explained

Overwatch 2 is one of the most popular hero-shooter games of recent times. Being a multiplayer game, there is always the option to chat with your friends or random teammates. If you are playing with random strangers and you don’t want to talk in your microphone, you can still communicate with them using the voice chat option.

However, sometimes the voice chat option goes wrong, especially if the teammates are strangers. During a match, if they think you didn’t perform well, they start blaming you for that reason. This is a common case in Overwatch 2 because the Overwatch community is famous for its non-cooperativeness and toxic behaviors. In that case, it will be humiliating for you to see those. So, if you don’t want to communicate with players even in Text Chat, follow the below steps to turn it off-

  1. Launch the game
  2. Go to Main Menu
  3. Click on the Social tab
  4. Select Groups
  5. Now, if it is a specific player, click on the chat icon beside his name. This will mute a specific player, and you have to do it in every match.
