Multiple Teamspeak 3 clients?

Did you ever wish you could use multiple instances of the Teamspeak 3 client software? For example one Teamspeak 3 client for your close friends, and another for your gaming buddies?

If you follow this guide you will be able to open two (or even more) Teamspeak 3 clients!

Step 1: Teamspeak 3 properties

Tto run multiple Teamspeak 3 clients we will need to adjust it’s launch properties.  Find your Teamspeak 3 Client shortcut, right click and to go to Properties.

Teamspeak 3 client properties in order to run multiple instances of Teamspeak 3 at the same time.

Step 2: Adding to the command line

Behind the target box add the following code 


In this example the x64 client was installed in C:\Program Files\. If you used the 32bit client, or changed the default installation path, your target will be different. Make sure you place the code behind the last quotation mark (.exe”)!

Example Original Target

“C:\Program Files\TeamSpeak 3 Client\ts3client_win64.exe”

Example Target for multiple Teamspeak 3 clients

“C:\Program Files\TeamSpeak 3 Client\ts3client_win64.exe” -nosingleinstance

Use the Teamspeak 3 properties to add -nosignleinstance to the Shortcut Target to allow you to start two ore more teamspeak 3 clients at the same time.
This Teamspeak 3 shortcut clearly shows -nosingleinstance behind the last quotation mark (“).

Step 3: Just start Teamspeak 3 again!

Just click the shortcut twice to start multiple Teamspeak 3 clients! Easy wasn’t it?

    Is there another flag that allows you to have 2 different settings for each client?

      Not that I know off. Of course you can always use two different Windows account, but when you swap user the other user goes idle meaning you can no longer use that teamspeak instance.

        Thank you for the quick repy. The issue I am trying to overcome is I use teamspeak for live radio shows. To prevent lag we have all guests in the live broadcast room. I was wanting to send the same audio to 2 different rooms, but not pick up any chat from the “green room”. Means they hear almost live the audio and will know when they are cued to be brought in.

        I am going to see what happens if I install 32 and 64 bits on same pc lol.

          You can probably do something with virtualization. Windows 10 (Pro) supports Hyper-V.

    Thanks for the tip – that’s great.
    What I am hoping to do is to have two separate headsets plugged into the same PC (using USB sound dongles), and then have different Push to Talk buttons assigned to each Teamspeak instance. That way I can create an “intercom” between the headsets on the same PC.
    Would that work using the method you have described above?
    Thanks so much in advance
