Among Us Update Adds Much-Needed Feature

A new Among Us update has added a much-needed feature alongside a few other new features, a metric ton of “big fixes,” and even more minor fixes. How do we know all of this? Because developer Innersloth has provided the official and extensive patch notes for the update, which it calls a “Bug Bashing Bonanza,” but is officially called version 2022.6.21. While we have the patch notes for the update, won’t we don’t have are the various file sizes for it.

As for highlights of the update, a Streamer Mode has been added, which isn’t relevant for most players, but great news for some. That’s not the much-needed feature though. The much-needed feature comes in the form of colorblind settings, which vastly improve the game for those suffering with colorblindness.

Below, you can check out the update’s full patch notes:

Quality of Life Improvements & Implemented Community Suggestions

Added a Streamer Mode. When active, room codes do not display in the lobby and is replaced by “Click to copy”. This can be toggled on or off in the General Settings.
Added Colorblind Settings. When active, the names of the colors will appear next to the players during meetings, and below the player during gameplay.

Account linking for all platforms (minus PlayStation and Nintendo) is back. Follow the in-game instructions carefully as we’ve removed Guest Accounts, but it should make it an easier process. More information on the new Account Linking here.
Players are now able to view the map from the voting screen.
Friends List – The player’s last display name will appear above a player’s Friend Code.
