Voice chat is unavailable...

...this could be due to routine server maintenence or a configuration issue.

I've had this error since launch. I can't talk to anyone.

Please help.

    I would so LOVE to have Voice chat unavailable ...

    coughing, children crying, random shouting ... the birds noises I didn't mind so much

    I'm regularly going into Voicechat and leaving Chat channels ... wish it would remember so I only had to join a Chat channel if I wanted, not every time I log in
    Everyone knows the phenomenon of trying to hold your breath underwater - how at first it's alright and you can handle it, and then as it gets closer and closer to the time when you must breathe, how urgent the need becomes, the lust and the hunger to breathe. And then the panic sets in when you begin to think that you won't be able to breathe - and finally, when you take in air and the anxiety subsides...that's what it's like to be a vampire and need blood.

    Not sure if this is causing your issue but just a thought. Game chat will not work if you are in a private PSN chat party. (i.e. your voice you are projecting its prioritized to the PSN chat party rather than the in game chat.) Also, under the "options" tab followed by the "voice" tab, make sure that the voice is set to "area".

    I use PSN party chat only because in game chat won't work. I'll check all my options again in game, but I've already gone over them multiple times.

    I have heard from others that opening up some port helped. Haven't done it myself though.

    What ports do I need open to play ESOTU on my console?

    We suggest players forward certain ports to ensure that their consoles are able to reach our servers. Different consoles will require different ports, so players should ensure that the ports suggested below are open for the platform they're playing on:

    Xbox One Ports:
    •Port 88 (UDP)
    •Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
    •Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
    •Port 80 (TCP)



    PlayStation 4 Ports:
    •TCP Ports 10040 through 10060
    •UDP Ports 50000 through 60000

    Although normally those same folks said they experience voice chat issues in other games as well, not sure if you do.

    Thank you, I have had zero issues in any other game but I will give a look into you're possible fix, thanks.

    I'll update if it works.

    Yes, I'm not sure why it keeps going back to current area instead of just leaving me in group. It's a pain selecting it every single time. There's only so much heavy breathing, coughing, background children noises, dog barking & listening to other people's personal music choices I can take!

    how do you switch ports?

    Voice Chat issues have been in place since launch in general. More often than not Area Chat is broken in Cyrodiil also. The game's "social" mechanics are still far from adequately working 24/7.

    Question for you, what is your upload and download speeds that you are currently receiving? Not what your ISP says you should be receiving but what you are actually receiving. Also probably try running a ping test and post the results, I ran into someone yesterday that those 2 things shed much light on the source of the problem.
