Turn Off Quick Chat in Among Us

Among Us Quick Chat is a new system that the developers have implemented, which bars younger players (and those without an account) from talking freely with other people. Naturally, everyone has immediately started asking how to turn it off. It’s very restricting, which is good for some instances, but it’s way too stringent and makes communication difficult. With all that said, here’s our Turn Off Quick Chat in Among Us guide to make things easier.

How to Turn Off Among Us Quick Chat

To turn off Quick Chat in Among Us, you have to go into the settings from the main menu, aka title screen. You do that by clicking the gear icon in the bottom. From there, click on Data in the top right, then find the Chat Type option. If it’s set to “Quick Chat Only,” switch it over to “Free or Quick Chat.” If you’ve entered your birthday properly, and you are over thirteen, you’ll now be able to use Free Chat as you please. If you’re under thirteen, or are over but entered the wrong birthday as a joke, you’re stuck with Quick Chat only.

That’s the only way to turn off Among Us Quick Chat. I know a lot of people are hating on the system, and I completely understand them. However, based on all the creeps I’ve run into in public lobbies, I also get why the developers felt the need to implement a way to protect kids playing Among Us. However, I do hope that they fine-tune the limitations a bit further, since I can see why people would consider the current system too stringent. I have to commend InnerSloth for their vigilance, though.

If you’re having trouble with anything else with the new Among Us update, we have a couple of other guides that you can check out. Things are a little hectic with the new content, so I can see people getting lost. We’ve written articles like Vault Task Among Us – Unlock Airship Safe, Change Account Name, and How to Sign In – Google Auth No Token, so give them a look-see.
