How Does The Proximity Chat Mod Work?
This mod / custom game server was created by developer @ottomated_ on Twitter. He released the proximity chat mod to the public on November 20th.
The rules and gameplay are the same as a regular round of Among Us.
All players in a lobby who are running the mod can speak to each other over voice chat when they are close.
The only major difference is that crewmates & impostors can all voice chat with each other when they are in range!

Troubleshooting the Mod
If you run into some issues when attempting to download & setup this mod, we have some suggestions.
- If you see red chat rings but not green, that players is not running CrewLink.
- Make sure everyone is running the latest version of the mod (only works with the non-beta version of Among Us)
- Make sure your microphone is plugged in correctly
- If you are having voice bugs (infinite chat range, etc) have everyone refresh the CrewLink mod menu with CTRL + R
