Riot will analyze voice chats in Valorant to fight harmful players.
Players who disrupt other players on Valuing will soon be fined for their bad words. In a recent blog post, Riot Games reveals plans to begin analyzing in-game voice chat as part of its program to address bad behavior in its games.

So, starting July 13, the studio will start collecting voice data from Valorant games in North America. According to Riot, its teams will use the data to train its AI model, for it “to launch in beta later this year.” During the first phase, Riot explains that it will not use voice rating in reports of bad behavior.
“We know that before we even think about extending this tool, we need to be confident in its effectiveness, and if errors do occur, we have systems in place to ensure that we can correct any false positives (or true negatives) ”, explains the studio.

Some players will probably get cold sweats at the idea that Riot can listen to their voice conversations, just like it did with Vanguard, its anti-cheat software that uses a kernel-mode driver. But Riot says they see this voice assessment as a way to “gather clear evidence” against players who use voice to abuse and harass their teammates. The tool will allow the studio to have obvious proof to provide to sanctioned players when they rightly contest the sanction.
“It’s brand new technology and there will definitely be problems […] but the possibility of a safer and more inclusive environment for all who choose to play is worth it.”
