    I am developing a small platformer for a school project. The requirements are that the game must run on LAN, so we are using Unity's Netcode for Game Objects and that's working perfectly, and also that it must have a voice chat.

    I have been trying to find a voice chat that works with Netcode for Game Objects, so far I've only found Dissonance, but since it's a school project I would prefer a free option.

    If anyone knows a solution for this I would be very thankful. I am quite new to Unity.

    Install Discord. Done. :cool:

    Seriously, built-in ingame voice chat support has never gained much traction, gamers generally prefer to use a common and global service to do their voice chatting across multiple games and apps or just for having a chat.

    Photon Voice Chat might work since you can use the free plan and NGO has a Photon transport layer.

    I agree with CodeSmile. Since it's a school project you'll probably get an A+ for making a decent multiplayer game, even without voice chat, so don't worry :) If you really need to put one in, you could probably use Vivox. Also what school makes you put a voice chat in a game for homework?

    I usually buy the license and do it from there, it's much easier than having so much trouble on your head. I understand that it involves spending financial resources but that sure makes up for the nerves you will save.
