Radio Messages are a form of communication in BATTLEGROUNDS to communicate to squad members who don't have microphones.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Playing with players from different regions in random Duo or Squad matches or players with no access to voice chat have made it difficult to establish team-based strategy through close communication between team members. To help solve this problem, we are introducing text-based Radio Messages that will help you communicate with your team more quickly and easily for successful strategic gameplay [1].
