I don’t think the mic icon shows up for the user who is looking at the list of users as you cant talk to yourself
What they also need is an indicator of who constantly has their mic on, allowing all their home drama to be heard in the damn background. This way you can mute them.
I do think voice chat for console is still bugged a bit. I was able to hear someone who was not near me at all but once our characters were in range of each other to much distance and I couldn’t hear them anymore. Which is a cool feature for proximity chat, their voices actually gets quieter as you move away. Brings a cool aspect to the chat but then I shouldn’t be able to hear them when they are no where near me.
Some global text chat could be beneficial to make new friends, especially on live 40 slot or larger servers
