Riot Games starts recording all in-game voice chat conversations in Valorant, setting a dangerous precedent


Although he announced the measure a year ago, it will July 13 When will Riot Games start? record all voice chat conversations of Valorant games.

And if you don’t like it, then the solution proposed by the company itself is simple: turn off the microphone and use text chat…which, by the way, is also stored…

This measure sets a dangerous precedent that opens the door for all video games and social media voice chats are recorded and monitoreddestroying a little more what little we have left.

The answer is always the same: fight crime and bad people and make us safer. This is an excuse that fits everything. In video games and in politics.

valiant, like all multiplayer games, full of toxic players who insult, harass and abuse other users because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, country, or just to annoy them. There is nothing new or isolated in this.

The producers of these games are desperately looking for measures to combat these unwanted users, and this is to be commended. The problem is that when these measures use the security and pursuit of criminals as a pretext, to destroy the privacy of their clients.

Riot Games, owned by the Chinese company Tencent, has assured that these first entries, which will begin on July 13 in Valorant, will not be used to accuse wrongdoers, but to train your artificial intelligence to detect keywords in these conversations like racial slurs, threatsetc.

It will be at the end of the year when voice chat monitoring becomes effective.

According to the company, these recordings will be used as evidence to exclude users who break the rules and will be destroyed when they are no longer needed, without a deadline.
