Third-party Developer Readying Voice Chat for Facebook

Pulkit Chandna

Facebook will soon be at your eardrums as Boston-based tech firm Vivox is busy giving the finishing touches to its voice chat offering for Facebook. Vivox identifies itself as the leading provider of voice chat services for online games and virtual worlds. The service is currently in closed beta and only a few weeks away from launch.

Users will have to download a plug-in before they can begin using the voice chat service , a Vivox undertaking independent from Facebook. Non-Facebook users will also be able to join conversations using free dial-in numbers. The company will provide its technology to any third party apps developer willing to integrate it in its Facebook apps.
