Riot has added a new party chat system in League of Legends in the newest patch, 13.4.

League of Legends is a team-based game. Because of this, it is best to be played with a team who knows how to coordinate. And the best way to play with a coordinated team is to play with a party.

A party can play Summoner’s Rift in League of Legends in three different ways. These are normal, flex, and duo queues, although the duo queue is less popular.

But there is a party voice chat and a text chat in the lobby regarding communication. But there is only voice chat when it comes to in-match communication. Although the party can use team chat, sometimes players might feel uncomfortable using it.

Moreover, there could even be people without a mic. In that case, the players could still use the whisper system. But it is very inconvenient. And when the player is three-stacking, it is impossible to communicate the same message to two different people simultaneously.

Because of this, Riot is adding Party Chat in the newest patch, 13.4.

Starting from patch 13.4, players can use the all-new party chat.

After being part of a party, players can press the Tab button after opening their chat menu. Afterward, their chat should hover over to party chat. Players can also type /party, /pt, or /p at the beginning of their message to send to the party chat.

The incoming party chat messages will be indicated with a [Party] tag at the beginning of the message. It is a great quality-of-life update, as players can communicate easily now. It also aligns with Riot’s promise to make communication more intuitive starting from season 13.
