Multiplayer gaming has a fast-paced nature and voice communication is an awesome bit of technology which complements it to the core. With voice communication, you don’t need to type out the long messages and you don’t need to sacrifice the game play for real time chatting. Razer which is an established gaming brand already has a new offering for voice communication. Well, the best part is that the program doesn’t cost a single dime. Razer Comms is still in its beta version, but, it already boasts of good enough features to compete with its major competitors such as RaidCall, TeamSpeak, Skype, Ventrilo etc.
Razer Comms User Interface
As soon as you open the software, the main contact window appears in front of you. This one lets you keep track of your friends, your groups, your conversations, the games that you are playing etc.
The software supports a multi-window layout rather than a single window for maintaining all the elements. It’s definitely convenient to have multiple windows for contacts, conversations, preferences; however, if you cannot manage things well, it can become bothersome for you.
Installed Games – Integration with Razor Comms
This is a high point for Razor Comms as it integrates with not only the newly installed games, but also with the ones which are already there in your system. Surprisingly, even if you don’t install the games in your C folder, the software is still able to look through the installed games. You can directly launch the games from the software itself.
I didn’t expect much on this front, as Razor Comms is still a beta program. To my amazement, there are number of preferences to fit your requirements. You can get sound and popup notifications. Apart from that, the input sensitivity, volume, push to talk features can definitely be modified based on your requirements.
There’s lot more to talk of Razor Comms which I will do in a later article for sure. For the time being, I’ll conclude here. If you want to share any experience of yours with me and the other readers regarding Razor Comms or any other similar software, please use the comments feature.
