If you are on client version 496.20 or above, some of you may see a new button on your 3D Chat homepage - Chat Now.

This is where users are connected randomly to other available users and get to chat in a private 1:1 chat. We hope to bring this feature back in an improved format to encourage new users to explore IMVU and meet some friendly faces.

For those of you who used this feature before, please note that there is no longer a selection process when you want to chat with someone via Chat Now. When you click on the mode, you are matched to any person who might be available (teens with teens, adults with adults). The chat will default to the Buckstars room but any party can switch to a room in their collection if they choose to do so. If the other party leaves the chat, you will be asked if you would like to chat with another person. If you say yes, then you will be matched with a new person and continue to chat in the same chat room.

Please note that this feature is in testing and therefore not available to all customers.

Some screenshots:







We hope those of you who are new to IMVU enjoy meeting new friends and those who have been here for a while make new visitors feel welcome and make some new friends.

Do give us feedback!

Nice. I'm looking forward to seeing what the improvements are and it's also kinda cool for Buckstars to be the initial venue ... much more appropriate than that old apartment we so often ended up in Very Happy

Testing.

Update:

I dont see the feature so I guess I am not in the group which are able to test the Chat Now feature, a bit disappointed but I hope it will be a success!

Can you make it so GA items only work in the initial chat now room, if people wanna change room let them wear what they want, but that initial meet an greet.. needs to be genital free.

That's a great idea and I hope it's one of the improvements.

Chat Now was hated by many because that would so often happen and it just made you not want to use the feature any more.

It's weird for IMVU to bring back an old feature. It's definitely one that a lot of older accounts will most likely not even use.

I believe that we should be given the option to organize those tabs ourselves. It gets annoying when there are a bunch of tabs on the first page that you don't even use.

This is going to be interesting. I have to admit, when I was bored I don't mind friend roulette. I truly enjoy meeting new people. You never know what you might learn about society or off the wall subjects. The only down side was 75% of the people I met asked me for sex within the first 2 sentences of the conversation. I am a bit leery of getting involved in this ....again. We shall see, said the Blind man.

I don't imagine it will be any different this time around. It will be used as another easy avenue for begging and a cyber junkies hunting ground.

I think it's a great way to find new people out there, if you get a creep? try again. Those who doesn't want to it's as easy as not using it (like Pulse).

However I do agree that we should be able to arrange those buttons the way we see fit, as we daily use ones much more than others. perharps an arranging mode similar to the Smartphones.

-list by name A-Z or Z-A
-list by most used
-custom list
