If you are a lover of online games and you go online simply to play a game with a friend, there are times you will wish you could talk to your opponent, while playing. Imagine being able to tell your opponent that you think they are cheating, or to tease your opponent when they are losing. 

Unfortunately, there aren’t many software out there that offer such capabilities. Since we all agree that this would drastically change the way games are played and enjoyed, the developers decided to design an incredible software called Mumble to give you a chance at experiencing this.

Why will Mumble be useful to you?

Mumble can be used for a variety of activities, as you can host your personal server. It allows its users to be able to create channels for games and as well manage these channels.

Speex serves as a high quality voice codec and DSP library, which gives Mumble its audio quality, as it enables echo cancellation and noise removal. Mumble gives you an opportunity to keep in touch with your opponents, while playing online games, with a good audio quality. 

After its complete configuration, you can connect to any server, as well as create and join any channel, to have an uninterrupted chatting experience. It gives you a chance to customize its setting, and shortcuts are available. These make your usage of the application really interesting.

Key Features of Mumble:

  • You can save energy and time using Mumble, as it uses low latency and bandwidth;

  • It has the ability to remove any echoing;
  • Using this application, you can determine an opponent’s location, as a result of its positional audio;
