Text chat is an essential feature in modern video gaming. Since Minecraft does not have VOIP (Voice-over-IP) players will need to utilize a text chat system to communicate online. Whether playing with friends on console or joining a public multiplayer server on PC, you will need this tool to effectively communicate with your friends or even strangers.
Text chat is available in all versions of Minecraft but for the Pocket Edition. This means that you do not require the use of a USB keyboard on consoles to input text chat. Unlike most console games, Minecraft for PS4 and XBox are both fully compatible with the console commands from the PC version.
Text chat can be used to communicate or run useful commands
Press “T” on the keyboard if available, or press “right” on the d-pad of your controller to open up the text input field.
Say whatever you like! You can use commands by typing a slash as well as speak to other players.
Chat can be utilized for dozens of purposes in Minecraft. Many multiplayer servers require or allow the use of commands in survival multiplayer, so it is important to know how to access this feature. Once you know how to use chat, signs in multiplayer worlds become tomes of knowledge to unlock features like teleportation, changing the color of your name and more. While chat can be used like a command prompt, you can also use it to talk to other players! Post links, use the “@” key to mention users directly, and even whisper secret messages. Depending on the server, these options will be accessed in different ways.
Q. Can you use cheats and commands on console?
Yes. When creating your world, please make sure to select the cheat enabled option, so that you may use commands to restore your world should something go wrong. Simply type in the chat in the same way as you would on the PC version.
Q. Can you use mods on console?
No, Minecraft mods are not permitted on consoles like XBox and PS4.
With these new skills, you will be able to talk to strangers as well as teleport or utilize advanced functions in public Minecraft servers. Now that you are a social butterfly, you can adventure without being a nameless, mute default skin. This means that other players will be able to communicate in nonviolent terms, making griefing a thing of the past. Work together or against your peers in your Minecraft world.
