Vivox Makes In-Game Comms Free for Indie Devs

Game communication giant, Vivox, has announced that its voice and text chat technology is now available at no cost for small and indie developers. This is the same technology used by millions of players in games like Fortnite and League of Legends. Starting immediately, game developers can download and integrate their games with Vivox’s SDKs that are compatible with Windows, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, iOS, and Android platforms.  Dave Verratti, president of Vivox, explains the decision to make this technology free, “We’ve seen an explosion of indie development thanks to the democratization of game engines and other technologies. The creativity and quality that has come from this have been fantastic for the industry. Therefore, we knew that access to our technology should no longer be exclusive to AAA publishers with blockbuster budgets.” This move hopes to create more accessible pathways to making  games without stifling developer creativity and productivity. If you’re a developer looking to integrate these products, Vivox invites you to sign up on their website.
