We're not sure whether this news is relevant to Diablo 3 yet but it's worth pointing out to the Diablo community. Next week Blizzard will launch the beta test for their upcoming shooter Overwatch, and as part of that test they'll be launching the first test version of Battle.Net Voice Chat.
Right now Blizzard are staying tight lipped about the future of the new voice chat system simply saying that "it's too early to say which Blizzard games will be supported and when". Based on the level of support the Diablo community currently receives from Blizzard don't be surprised if Voice Chat does not appear for a long time, if at all.
There are no further details on the new voice chat system but we'll find out more about how it functions when the Overwatch beta launches on the 27th.
