If you are not able to type in the chat in Among Us, the reason is that your date of birth has been chosen in a way which doesn’t allow it. Basically the quick chat feature in the game is dependent on your age. If you are underage, you will only be able to use the quick wheel for chatting whereas if you are older, you can type freely to communicate with other players. The predefined messages, while well-made, can restrict your communication regarding location, blaming other players etc. If you are wondering how to change your age in Among Us so that you can access the free chat again, this guide will explain the steps.
How to Change your Age in Among Us
Follow these steps to enable free chat by changing your age in Among Us and communicate with other players without the restriction of quick chat.
- Enable Hidden Files and Folders first.
