If you have recently switched from your usual battle royale game to Apex Legends, you’ve probably jumped straight into the action without exploring some of the games more in-depth features. If so, make sure you take a few minutes to appreciate some of the games finer details, like the ability to convert all voice chat into text.

For anyone who is a big fan of battle royale games like PUBG, Fortnite, and more recently Black Ops 4. Apex Legends manages to take some of the best aspects of each and merge them with an Overwatch inspired character system. Although this sounds a little strange from a written perspective, the results are surprisingly fun and if you’ve already logged a ton of hours in-game, you know exactly what we mean.
As well as a completely unique take on battle royale, Apex Legends has quite a few interesting quality of life features that you’ll find yourself using throughout the game. The Ping system is by far the most useful, so useful in fact that you’ll notice most players don’t even bother using voice chat anymore. That being said, there are still plenty of occasions voice chat still comes in handy, especially as the zone starts to shrink into really close quarters combat.
Another interesting feature of Apex Legends that hasn’t got as much attention as it should is voice to text conversion. With this enabled any spoken content and commands are instantly converted to text and displayed in-game via the text chat interface. Surprisingly it’s also extremely accurate and hasn’t managed to completely misinterpret anything I’ve spoken... So far. Although this feature probably isn’t for everyone, there are a lot of people who will find it interesting, so follow along as we show you how to enable it.
