Being able to whisper to each other has been a frequent request from IMVU’s community members. Well, now you can! We have just launched the new Whisper chat feature exclusively for our VIP members. Now when you are in a chat room, you can have a private conversation with just a single person in that room (as long as at least one of you is a VIP).
So how does the Whisper feature work?
Whisper is a feature available exclusively for our VIPs. A VIP member can whisper to anyone and anyone can whisper to a VIP. Two non-VIP users however cannot use the feature to chat with each other.
To whisper with someone when in a chat room, simply hover over their avatar name in the text chat window. You will see a “Whisper” button appear next to their name. Click on the button and the next message you type will go to that person only. You can distinguish your whisper messages in the text chat window as they will appear italicized. Wanna stop whispering? Click the “x” next to the user’s name and you will resume your conversations with the entire room. Please note that you can only whisper to one person at a time. Close out one whisper dialog session before starting a new one with someone else.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead download the latest IMVU 3D client (v443) and check out this new feature. Don’t have VIP? No worries, simply click here to get your membership started. There are plenty more benefits available to our VIP members.
