Mumble is a powerful application which was designed to ease the communication among gamers. When playing online games, gamers need good communication in order to take split-second actions, and most of the games don't provide a built-in voice tool. This feature-rich application can be used for voice communication around the world, but users need to create a server that other people connect to. In order to set up a new server, the creator must provide a name, an address, a port and a username. This software also groups servers by the country it comes from, in order to make it more simple to find a chat room. Also, you can choose to mute or deafen yourself if you don't want to hear what other people speak, or don't want them to hear you. Another useful option that this application provides is the Record function which can be used to record certain parts from a voice conversation. The Preferences menu offers a quick way to modify settings regarding the quality of the conversation, the interface of the program and its use.

All taken into consideration, Mumble proves to be an efficient tool designed to ease voice-communications, and stands as a great alternative to other similar applications.
