Chat with your friends while playing Quake Live

Until recently I did not know it was possible to talk to someone in your friends list while you are playing Quake Live.

When you send a message through the browser, it pops up in your friend’s Quake Live. This is already a nice feature but it is also possible to talk back while in game.

Open the console and type

/tell_buddy <name> “text here”

I find this tool very useful to drop an online friend a quick note while you’re playing.
