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.

      I’m having the same problem! It says Quick Chat and it’s not a clickable option. I’ve been playing for the past few days and I’ve only ran into two different people that have said anything that wasn’t on the quick chat menu.

      Make sure your birthday is over 13. Also, you need to make an Among Us account. Go to homescreen of Among Us where it says “Online, Freeplay, etc”, and press account at the left. Then, press sign in, and make one.

    5. C

      same. i don’t know why this is, but it is set at “quick chat only” and the lettering is in gray. i can’t change it, but the only reason i can think of is probably bc you may be under 13.

  2. M

    I have the same issue as HELP NEEDED. It cant change it. It is gray and when I click on it, its not changing.

  3. M

    Mine is also stuck on quick chat and it is grayed out to it in the options menu. I noticed everyone I play can only use quick chat now.

    Sign in to Google Play

    For those whose box is gray, you need to sign in. It seems like you are, but hit “account” in the top left and sign in to Google Play Games (or whatever your phone uses). Then you can change this setting!:)

  8. M

    I think that among us developers should separate people by age so if your a certain age you go to a certain lobby.
    Also among us added a new update every one has to use quick chat
