How exactly do you use voice chat?

I read the update thread about voice chat being added, and tried playing a game with one of my friends and we couldn't hear each other. I put the transmit volume to 100% and enabled voice chat but still nothing. There isn't a key or something is there?

This is of interest to me as well.
How exactly does Nation Red's voicechat work?

It's supposed to be always active, but I think a push to talk and/or some sort of indication that it's receiving your voice would be a boon. As it is right now it doesn't really work that well.

If you play co-op with friends on your Steam friends list, just hit "Start voice chat" in the chat window and do it that way. I mapped the voice chat button on Steam to C on my keyboard, so when you call your friend on Steam and start the voice chat, you can be in-game and hold C or any other key you want to talk. You don't need to have the Steam in-game window open or anything like that. Anyways, it'll do until I find out how to use Nation Reds.

Hello VenomIce,

We're also adding Push to Talk and smoother voice chat to the upcoming 1.85 update. It's nearly done

Yeah, the best way is really to invite all players into a single chatroom and have everybody press the "Start Voice Chat" button.
This VoIP can be adjusted by going Steam -> View -> Settings -> tab VOICE. Works in game without without the overlay.

Works awesome in other games too. Me and my friend use it all the time for chatting in non-Steam multiplayer games.
