How to Setup Simple Voice Chat on Your Minecraft Server

Simple Voice Chat is a Minecraft mod that allows voice chatting in-game without the use of external software. One feature of the mod is proximity chat, which allows you to hear the voice of nearby players and be able to tell the direction that the sound is coming from. The mod is available for both Forge and Fabric.

Installing Simple Voice Chat on Your Server

  1. Ensure your server is running a Forge or Fabric Server Type.
  2. Download Simple Voice Chat. Make sure the file works for the same version as your server.
  3. Open your Control Panel and navigate to Files > FTP File Access.


  4. Open your /mods directory.
  5. Click Upload on the left side of the page.
  6. Upload the Simple Voice Chat JAR file.
  7. Restart your server.
Important reminder: you will need to install the mod on your computer before joining the server. Please refer to our Forge or Fabric guides on how to install mods on your computer.

Configuring Simple Voice Chat (Forge)

If running Forge, you can learn how to configure your plugin here. Please skip to the next section if you’re running Fabric.

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > FTP Access.
  3. Navigate to /<YOUR_WORLD_NAME>/serverconfig.
  4. Click Edit on the file named voicechat-server.toml.

  5. Find the line port=24454 and change this to match the port of your server. You can find your :port in the Server Address on the control panel.


  6. Click Save.
  7. Start your server.

Configuring Simple Voice Chat (Fabric)

If running Fabric, you will need to follow slightly different steps. Please refer to the section above if you’re running Forge.

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > FTP Access.
  3. Navigate to /config/voicechat.
  4. Click Edit on the file named voicechat-server.properties.

  5. Find the line port=24454 and change this to match the port of your server. You can find your :port in the Server Address on the control panel.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Start your server.
