Valorant Voice Evaluation Update: In a release on their official website, Riot has confirmed that it has updated its privacy policies in…
The new voice evaluation system will be implemented from July 13 and will remain in a beta stage for a few months now, as it prepares for a late 2022 launch.
“On July 13 we will begin a background launch of the voice evaluation system in North America/English-only to help train our language models and get the tech in a good enough place for a beta launch later this year” mentions the release.

Apparently, the system needs to learn and adapt to different demographics and come up with a flawless detection system to prevent false positives. Therefore, the month-long beta period is necessary.
Riot is known to keep its user experience at the centre of everything and it is indeed a bold step from the company to fight discrimination within the game. VALORANT is a tactical team-based shooter and communication is one of the most essential parts of the game. It is a common phenomenon among players to be overly aggressive towards other teammates and thereby ruining the experience for a lot of players.
Riot is the first big title in the gaming industry to introduce such a feature that can give a major overhaul to the Valorant experience, especially for new players.
However, until the official launch of the voice evaluation system takes effect, the reports of disruptive behaviour will continue to be examined with the current evaluation system.
“We know that before we can even think of expanding this tool, we’ll have to be confident it’s effective, and if mistakes happen, we have systems in place to make sure we can correct any false positives (or negatives for that matter),” says Riot.
There’s no telling about its success rate and it’s obvious that there will be a lot of misfortunate penalties given to players who haven’t violated any guidelines. But Riot is confident that they will be able to create a safer and more inclusive environment which will eventually conceal any inconveniences caused by it.
