Second Life adds Voice to Live Grid for all users

Second Life logo

Mashable reports that Second Life has made the previously announced voice option available on the Beta grid.

What is being called the Voice First Look Viewer is available for download to use in the live grid, meaning all users can now have voice options in their Second Life game. Second Life plans to run Voice on the live grid for a couple of months, and see how t goes, based on user feedback, but the company is looking to make this a standard feature on Second Life in the near future.

I used to play Unreal Tournament online a lot, and after checking some of the servers with voice enabled, I quickly discovered I rather not hear my fellow gamers at all. Now Second Life gamers are probably a different breed (at least the percentile of female users is higher, 50% isn’t it?), but I wonder how many people really welcome this option.

    Mashable’s report was in error. Read comments.

    And the number of people wanting it versus those that don’t is perhaps 50/50. There’ll be plenty who use it and plenty who’d rather keep their voice (and gender) a question.

    Thanks for pointing that out csven.

    So, Voice is moving from the Beta Grid to the Live Grid and the Voice First Look Viewer can now be downloaded to use against the Live Grid.
