Viewing other party members' screens gives you the chance to help them out with the game or just watch for fun while chatting.

A vital accessory to have for voice chats while gaming is an excellent pair of headphones. Wearing headphones while gaming does more than just let you focus on what you're doing. You'll also be able to talk with those in your party since most gaming headsets have a microphone built-in. This makes forming strategies with your team, helping someone through part of their game, or talking smack on others, that much easier.
