Mumble is a free, open-source voice-over IP application designed primarily for gamers. Thanks to its client-server architecture, users can communicate with one another even if they are using the same server. What really makes it stand out from other similar applications are its high quality, low latency voice capabilities.
For starters, it makes use of a low latency audio codec known as Opus. This codec enables low latency communication, which means that it reduces the delay between when a message is being conveyed and when it is heard by the receiver. The software also comes preloaded with an echo cancellation feature, which comes in handy when you are using mediocre speakers or other acoustic hardware for communication or gaming.
Due to end-to-end encryption, you don’t have to worry about user privacy either. It also targets different user groups and offers different features catering to the needs of each group.
