Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI): How to Disable The Annoying “This is a Simulation Game” Broadcast In Spawn Island

Krafton’s aim is to promote better health and well-being of BGMI players via the audio message


Battlegrounds Mobile India is available for early access on the Google Play Store. Android users who pre-registered can download the game from the Google Play Store. Krafton, the developers of PUBG Mobile, has made some changes to BGMI to make it suitable for the local Indian conditions. The changes, although minor, are aimed at improving the player’s gaming experience. The most significant and noticeable change is at the start of each match, wherein the system releases an audio message reminding the user about the game’s simulation based on a virtual world. The message also reminds players to take frequent breaks in between.

At the start of each match, Battlegrounds Mobile India players will hear “This is a simulation game set in the virtual world and does not represent real life. Please play in moderation. Take frequent breaks and play responsibly.” The repetitive message can get annoying, especially for those who play the game for long hours. There have been instances wherein players have taken severe life-threatening measures, either for losing a match or for not being allowed to play PUBG Mobile. Krafton’s aim is to promote the better health and well-being of BGMI players.
