    "In order to find a voice chat for gaming, I would look into Twitch. However, Twitch is not currently available in the USA, so people who don't live in the USA might have trouble finding the download. Perhaps it might be better to look at other solutions. I would try to find a solution by preforming a google search on the problem."

    "Started using this after TeamSpeak inexplicably started disconnected me from server randomly. Decided to pick up a new VoIP and this one came recommended. It's definitely got a good price point (free) and setting up a server was easy. Would definitely recommend doing so for the absolute minimum latency. The HUD is pretty great and keeps everything organized. "

    "This app is great for voice chat on mobile! I didn't think my devices would be able to handle the multitasking involved, but it works smoothly while playing mobile games! The UI is simple, and there are even capture and streaming features included. I really like how everything you'd want on mobile that's included on the computer is consolidated into one app."
