Does this mean voice chat with strangers?

That's how I read it as well, if so, maybe the app will have some benefit now.

Maybe it's because I'm old, but what I detest most about online play is talking to strangers. Even rocket league quick chat can become super sarcastic and annoying so I turn off that chat option. Unless of course I am playing with friends. But again, being older, my friends and I never have the same schedule.

Yeah, I'm the same way ("old man" here as well). But I have hopes that MK will be better.

I wholeheartedly agree with u on this. I guess u can say im an "old man" as well. I DESPISE talking online with complete strangers, especially with kids/teens. Something about them I find annoying, I cant quite put a finger on it? (even the ones tht are pretty chill) I've been like this since Highschool. I only stick with Discord if I want to VC and thts only with ppl I know pretty weel and gamed with.
