Valve Adopting Skype Codec



Steam will be using the well-regarded SILK codec for voice chat over its popular Steam service, according to a press release sent out this afternoon.

This is good news for anyone using Steam's built-in voice communication capabilities. As anyone who has used Skype knows, the sound quality is excellent. Integrating SILK into Steam will only increase the service's fidelity.

Personally I tend to use text chat with Steam friends and a dedicated Ventrilo server for MMO gameplay. How do you communicate with your peoples in-game?
