In the Warzone 2 pre-game lobby you may notice a bunch of players typing in the text chat but how can you join the conversation?

Warzone 2 has introduced new ways to communicate including proximity chat, but if you don’t own a functioning microphone text chat can be an alternative way to talk to your team.
