Origin Chat Room

Does Anyone know how to use origin chat room to chat, is it with a microphone or text writing, and can this be done in live game mode or not. ?

    ~ I chat with people in Origin, if I am in game or not a pop-up will appear on my screen telling me one of my friends has messaged me,& the message,but I am usually not quick enough to read it all before it disappears, I will open Origin,if it is not already open, & on the bottom of the page near my Friends list you will find the message,you just click underneath to message/type them back, basically it is like texting, but through Origin!
    ~ I hope that made sense? Need any more help just PM me, OK! ;)

    I have one Origin friend who also plays Sims but we never seem to be on at the same time so I've never actually used it.

    Thanks for responding, I was hoping to chat with a microphone than this text writing, it would've been a hold lot easier to explain to someone that I'm helping out in the game how to do things for their builds, I've been doing this through pm message somethings are tricky to explain in this text writing it would've been good if we had an option on this, as long as the other person is ok with this, I guess I have to think a better way to explain in this text writing and thanks again :)

    Have you tried using the voice chat option @chips46? It comes up when you right click on their name (second in the list). Obviously the other person will need to have a mike as well.

    Maybe we should think about having an Aussie/Kiwi Sims Discord channel. I use Discord when playing Elder Scrolls Online. Discord is a free download.

    ~ Good idea,one worth considering,but we would need a few to make it a worthwhile chat line,I myself would find it easier to explain exactly what I mean,when my "WORDS" don't convey what I mean!

    Hi there chips46 :)
    I have a few international sim friends I made on the TS3 forums that I occasionally chat to via Origin. I have the voice chat feature activated so whenever we are online together we simply chat via our microphones so we do not have to stop simming :D
    I hope this helps answer your question xx
