What does VC stand for?

Voice chat

When someone says they want to ‘VC’, it simply means they wish to engage in a “voice chat”. This form of communication is usually carried out using digital devices such as a computer and a microphone, along with online voice chat platforms like Teamspeak, Ventrilo, Google Meet, or TeamViewer. The participants connect to the voice chat service and talk as if they were on a phone call, instead of exchanging written messages.

Choosing to ‘VC’ instead of text chatting can be due to various reasons. One of the main advantages of ‘VC’ is that it is often more effective than text chat as it minimizes the risk of misunderstandings. A lot of people also find voice chat more satisfying than text messaging. Hearing the voice of the person you’re interacting with can make the conversation more personal and authentic.
