Around exactly one year ago Blizzard revealed that it was working on a voice chat system for its Battle.net client that would enable players to talk to one another while grinding their favorite Blizzard games or even just hanging out on Battle.net. Testing for the voice chat service started earlier this year and yesterday the service was released to everyone.
To try Blizzard Voice for yourself all you need to do is update your Battle.net client, open your friends list, select “Create a Channel,” and then invite all your buddies. Alternatively, for a spot of one-on-one conversation, you can simply right-click a name in your list and select “Start a Voice Chat.” I’ve recently tested it out and I can say it is a really cool service!
