In KartRider: Drift, you can communicate with other racers via voice chat. Voice Chat settings can be set up through “[In-game Lobby - Menu - Settings - Audio]”.

Don't forget that you need a device with a microphone (like a headset, webcam, etc.) for Voice Chat!

Voice Chat Settings
∙ The initial Voice Chat setting is set to “On”, but you can turn ON/OFF Voice Chat and adjust the volume.
1. How to Check My Voice Chat Settings
∙ You can check whether your Voice Chat is active by checking the speaker icon next to your racer name.
∙ When Voice Chat is active, the speaker icon will show a blue wave. When Voice Chat is inactive, there is an “X” displayed next to the speaker icon.

Voice Chat
∙ Voice Chat is sorted as “Party Chat” when you're in the lobby and sorted as “Team Chat” while you're waiting to join a game.
1. Voice Chat Icon Details
Party Chat
∙ If you create a party with your friends, you can chat with them in the lobby.
Custom Race Chat
∙ In the Custom Race lobby, you can chat with all the present racers.
Voice Chat In A Race
∙ You can use Voice Chat with your teammates during a race.
∙ As shown in the screen above, a teammate who is speaking has a wave on their speaker icon to the right of their racer name.
(Please note that the speaker icon can be displayed differently based on a racer's Voice Chat settings!)
∙ The Voice Chat feature is unavailable in Solo races.

Mute Voice Chat Feature
∙ You can use “Mute” if you don't want to hear a specific racer.
∙ While you're waiting for the race to start or after a race has finished, select the nickname of a racer and press “Mute” on the screen.
∙ If you want to hear the voice of the racer you previously blocked, you can select the muted racer and “Unmute” them.
Emoji Chat
The “Emoji” feature will allow you to express a variety of emotions in the lobby or waiting screen.

How to Use Emojis
∙ If you press “Emoji” at the bottom-left of the lobby, eight types of emojis expressing certain emotions are shown on a wheel to the left.
∙ When you select an emoji, that emoji will be displayed in the speech bubble and the character will express an emotion that matches the emoji used.
Setting Up Your Emojis
∙ You can choose your emojis at “Main Screen > Garage > Emoji”.
∙ Select and use an emoji for each situation (ex. Joy, Sad, etc.)
∙ Emojis that have been set up for use are displayed with a white border along with the text, “In Use”.
∙ The emojis you set up are applied to your character.
∙ Emojis: Joy, Sad, Surprised, Agree, Bluff, Nice, Angry, etc.
∙ Emoji Decals: Dao, Bazzi, Diz, Marid, Brodi, Neo, Rex

You can select an emote to use after a Victory, Defeat, Finish, or Retire on “[Main Screen - Garage - Character - Emote]”.

Emotes are owned by each character and can be obtained from purchases at the Shop or as rewards from the Racing Pass.
