imVOX Gaming Voice Chat Early Mac Alpha Available
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Ayalogic has announced the release of an alpha build for the Mac version of imVOX, a new voice communication service designed "to broaden the use of voice in games." The free imVOX service allows up to 30 gamers to join a voice chat for free, or up to 250 for the paid premium service.
The software runs in the background while a user plays a multiplayer game like World of Warcraft to provide users with better communication with teammates. Premium services will be available for $24.99 USD per year, and will provide users with the ability to connect up to 250 users to a single server and expanded in-client features such as text-to-voice and a customizable client.
We've actually released an early release Mac version finally after much work. Currently it is still being worked on, and we'll admit that its got some room to grow (doesn't look/act Mac-like yet), but we're on it!For more information about imVOX follow the links below.
imVOX Mac Client Download
Hot off the press is the imVOX Mac client. This thing is so hot off the press I'd say its radioactive, as in not fully stable. Call it an alpha, call it a nightly build. Call it what you will. It works (mostly, or at least most of the time) and its available for you to try out. Just don't cry to me if it goes down when you're facing off with the Lich King. Don't say I didn't warn you!
The download is somewhat bigger than the PC version due to the fact that it includes the Mono Framework that we're using instead of Microsoft's .NET for Windows.
Go ahead- download it. Mount the image, and give it a shot. You'll have to install Mono before running it, but doing so is quick and painless. Then just drag imVOX to your Applications folder and you're good to go.
