If you’re a gamer who plays online multiplayer games at one point or another you probably wanted to communicate quickly with a teammate or fellow player. > Whether it’s fast paced FPS games like Overwatch, Call of Duty and Battlefield or MMOs like World of Warcraft and Guild Wars 2, or even MOBAS like League of Legends and DOTA2, communication via in game chat sometimes isn’t enough. This is where your mic comes in, but what if you don’t have a mic? What if the mic you have doesn’t work, or for some reason you cannot afford a mic or an expensive video game headset.

In this guide I am going to show you how to use your android cell phone as a mic (wired or wireless) for online gaming. This will work whether the game has built in voice communication or you are doing it through external software like TeamSpeak or Discord. Save your money, your cell phone is a free mic!
