Xbox Voice Reporting
In July 2023, Microsoft Xbox released a new addition to its family and online safety features. The new voice reporting feature gives players the ability to capture and report inappropriate in-game voice chats.

Key features of the tool include:
With this addition, Xbox’s player reporting and evidence capabilities now cover all content including text, image, video and voice, further supporting player safety. All players and their data are protected and secured in accordance with the Microsoft Privacy Statement.
To help players learn how to use the in-game voice reporting feature, Xbox Support published a quick ‘how-to’ video that demonstrates the process step by step.
