Xbox launches a new report feature for in-game voice chat

Xbox today launched a new voice reporting feature to combat malice in voice chats while gaming online. The feature is currently available to Xbox Insiders, allowing them to capture a 60-second video clip of an in-game voice chat and submit it to the Xbox security team for review.

The security team will evaluate the user’s complaint to determine if there is a policy violation, and then send the details of the evaluation results and reasons to the player through the notification update function.

Xbox is following the “record now, report later” scenario. Players can initiate reports while in-game by recording footage and submitting reports with minimal in-game interruptions. Clips will be saved in the Player Console for 24 hours, giving you flexibility when reporting. Xbox will also send reminders for clips that have been recorded but not reported. Clips not reported within 24 hours will be automatically deleted.


Voice reporting will be rolled out to Xbox Insiders during a beta period before rolling out to English-speaking markets including the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Xbox is also working to apply this feature to other languages.

With the above addition, the Xbox reporting feature now includes text, image, video, and voice reports. The company calls on gamers to take action, be an active ally, and report any instances of malicious behavior online.
