TeamSpeak is a voice chat application that allows you to easily communicate with your friends over a channel. The impressive voice quality, the noise reduction implemented in the latest version, together with the possibilities to adjust microphone settings in order to acquire the best sound make it the software of choice in Voice over IP communications.
Configuring it is very easy because TeamSpeak is probably one of the best organized and well-documented software ever created. It offers information, tips and explanation every step of the way.
Once installation is complete, you are presented with a Setup Wizard, so adjusting the initial settings isn’t rocket science. The next step is to test your microphone by adjusting the level of your voice (TeamSpeak takes into consideration the background sounds, whispers and breathing), and optionally assign hotkeys to enable Microphone Mute and Speaker Mute.
Tips are offered every step of the way. For example, when you choose your nickname, the software tells you this is only to display your identity, and not in any way connected to a username (which is usually permanent in other similar software).
Voice Activation Detection or Push-To-Talk can be enabled, so the software automatically recognizes your voice and displays your nickname to the other users, or awaits your command to do so. What you need to do next is to log on to a server and start chatting with your friends.
The menus that populate the main window allow you to create bookmarks, manage permissions (for servers and channels), organize contacts, access file transfers or record conversations.
In conclusion, TeamSpeak is one of the most simple and customizable VoIP chat software that we got our hands on. By creating unique identities, TeamSpeak protects your privacy, no matter the channel you’re using.
