The valorant will start tracking your voice conversations from July 13 – The Verge

Riot Games, the developer behind the free first-person shooter (FPS) Evaluation,, will begin to monitor the player’s voice communication July 13 (via PCGamer). The gaming company says it will help train language models that they will eventually use in evaluating player reports in all of their games.

Riot originally announced this change in April 2021 after an update privacy policy. The new terms give Riot permission to “record and potentially evaluate voice data when using Riot-owned voice communication channels” for the purpose of combating hate speech and harassment through voice chat. Riot says he will analyze the footage when a player reports someone for offensive or offensive comments. In return, this should help the company to determine if the registered player has violated its rules and take appropriate action.

Riot will not yet begin evaluating player reports based on these recordings – it uses the data it collects to help build the beta system it expects to be unveiled later this year. For now, Riot will only rate English-speaking conversations Evaluation players in North America. The only way to disconnect from this system is to completely disable voice chat or use some other communication tool, such as Discord.

“We know that before we can even think about extending this tool, we need to make sure it’s effective, and if mistakes happen, we have systems in place to ensure we can correct any false positives (or negatives in that case),” Riot notes. in his announcement.

When this system is actually introduced, Riot says it will not “actively monitor your live communications with games” and will only “potentially listen to and view voice recordings” if you are reported for disruptive behavior. He also adds that he will delete this information after resolving the situation, similar to what he does for reports made through his text chat systems. Even further, it will surely cause some players’ privacy concerns, much like always included Vanguard anti-cheat system which tracks your activity and in and beyond Evaluation.

A planned reporting system is not the only way Evaluation trying to break the poisonous players. Earlier this year, Riot started letting go Evaluation players add certain words or phrases to the “excluded words list” that should help block offensive chat content.
