Among us is a team-based game, which requires players to chat to figure out who is the impostor within them so if you’re having issues where the Text chat itself isn’t working then the game really has no meaning to it, we will explain in a step-by-step explanation how you can fix this issue and why it is occurring. This issue arises after the implementation of the quick chat wheel, which is usable by guest users who haven’t made an account and those who made an account but are below the age of 13. To fix the Text chat in Among us is rather simple but can get complicated from platform to platform, if you haven’t made an account yet then make one but make sure your age is 18+ to ensure that you can use the text chat.
