UPDATE APPLE DEVICE USERS: The IMVU Mobile Experience is now available in the iTunes App store! Download it today on your iPhones or iPads!

UPDATE ANDROID DEVICE USERS: The IMVU Mobile experience is now available as an app in Google play store. Download it today on your Android devices!

UPDATE: The new IMVU Mobile experience is here for you to test and give us feedback on! Get details here: http://www.imvu.com/mobile/

YOU enjoy IMVU - a rich, immersive, 3D avatar-based experience by downloading our 3D Chat product onto your PC/Mac desktops.

YOU use IMVU2Go - our companion app available for iOS and Android devices - to stay connected with IMVU and your friends when you have to step away from your computers.

YOU while on the go want to be able to dress up your avatar, use it to chat, explore public chat rooms, and indulge in shopping in the catalog.

YOU have friends that you know would love to join you in IMVU but can’t or won’t download the client to explore it with you.

YOU are the experts of all things IMVU!



WE here at IMVU have a grand and long-term vision to be everywhere YOU and your friends are - web browsers, tablets, smartphones, and yet to be invented platforms.

WE need your help and feedback to help us along this path.

So coming soon, to a mobile phone, tablet, or a mobile browser near you is a brand-new - but still in development - version of the IMVU experience! It is an “alpha” version of what promises to be a great way to introduce IMVU to new users coming to us via their mobile browsers and for our existing customers to stay connected with IMVU using their own customized avatars (and not the big phone)! We will soon make it available to you so you have an opportunity to test it out and give us feedback - to make improvements, additions and more.

What is it?

IMVU Mobile (a tentative name very likely to change) is a companion app for customers like you - being developed based mainly on your suggestions regarding improvements to IMVU2Go. It is also a first experience that allows brand-new users to IMVU to start exploring all IMVU has to offer when they come to us using their mobile devices and browsers.

At the very initial launch of the alpha version you will be able to:

● Log into your IMVU account using any type of phone or device that has a mobile browser
● Have access to your own dress up items and outfits
--Note: At the beginning, larger inventories (1,000+ items) may load slower or not at all
● Dress up your avatar
● Explore and join public chat rooms including your favorites
● Be seen as yourself (i.e. your own avatar and not the big phone) inside the rooms you join
● See the avatars of room participants and feel that you are part of the scene - while on your mobile devices
● Make new friends or connect with existing ones
● Access your IMVU Inbox messages - read, send, and reply
● Access safety features as needed

These are just a few of the features you have requested that will be part of IMVU Mobile. Future releases will deliver more features and improvements including Shopping in the catalog, joining chats via chat invites, and more.

What it is not?

● A replacement for the rich 3D experience on your PC or Mac
● An exact replacement for IMVU2Go. We seek your feedback in adding the next set of features as well as improvements such as Pulse, Private Chats, DOC etc.

When?

Try it today. Get details at: http://www.imvu.com/mobile/

Where is it?

We can’t wait to have you check out the mobile product. We will provide information here to tell you how - either on your mobile browser (likely to be the first step) or as an app for your mobile devices!

UPDATES:

Since a picture is indeed worth a 1000 words......here are some screenshots of the under-development IMVU Mobile experience. Please note that these are indicative of how the app/mobile browser product will look but not necessarily the final versions.

Homescreen:




Browsing Chat Rooms:



Chatting in Rooms (your avatar in 2D with room background)

For chat participants inside that room when they are on the desktop version, you will appear as your own avatar.



Dress Up (your own inventory including outfits)



Messages (IMVU Inbox)



Friends (List of friends as well as friend requests)



Profile Card - As seen for anyone in your friends list or for chat room participants. More information will be added to the cards in later versions!

Questions?

Check here for answers (will be updated as needed)


Are you replacing IMVU2GO?

No. IMVU2GO will continue to be available for iOS and Android devices as long as the platforms continue to support the current versions. We are striving to make our new companion app more feature-rich and more widely available across not just iPhones and Android phones - but all smartphones and mobile browsers.

Once we have the IMVU Mobile experience be not just at par but far superior than IMVU2Go, then we will consider having a single experience for mobile.

Is this a beta version?

Consider it not just beta but really alpha version with lots of development still ongoing! We want to make it available soon to you for your testing and feedback and to those people who try to use IMVU using their mobile devices for the first time and are unable to do so.

Is this an app or what?

Yes and no. "IMVU Mobile" will be available for any mobile browser without needing an app. PLUS, we are planning to publish it in iTunes and Android stores. Stay tuned for details….

How will I appear in chat rooms that I join?

As your own avatar not the big phone that is used when someone is on IMVU2Go. Other participants in the chat room - if they themselves are on our PC/MAC product - will see you as the avatar you have chosen. Your experience of course is not the same - it is not full 3D as you are used to when using the client. When using IMVU Mobile you will see your avatar as a 2D image with the background of the room.

What about other features?

Music, groups, pulse, photo stream etc will not be part of the first version of IMVU Mobile

Will I see profile cards when using IMVU Mobile?

Not in the same format that you see using our desktop client or website. Information about avatars will be shown in a different format (stay tuned for screenshots!).

Will I need to submit additional information?

If you already have an IMVU account, you will simply need to log in using your username/email and password. For new customers, there will be a registration process similar to the current one for IMVU.

Where is my AP stuff?

Access Pass content is not allowed in any apps and we are discussing ways to see how we can manage the AP experience.

What about Creators?

Shopping in the catalog is a feature to be added soon after initial launch. Creator catalogs will be integrated at that time.

Hello Varsha! This is great news indeed, and, as a IMVU user who uses the the mobile apps, I very much appreciate this change and look forward to it. Does this mean we will be able to chat with our avatars on-the go and provide users the same 3D experience we have on PCs/Macs?

This sounds great! I can't wait to play around with it. The only draw back to IMVU2Go for me was the inability to join public rooms without an invite.

As part of the Experts on IMVU, give me 1 TRUTHFUL REASON in why I should believe you.

You are SEEKING our feedback........ You've got a NERVE to mention that word "Feedback".

You did not reply to my feedback regarding the "New Muted Colours" in progress in August.

You are standing firm on NO OPT OUT on the profile cards and as EXPERTS, you have IGNORED our feedback.

FEEDBACK FOR THIS = I will NEVER put anything imvu brings out for other platforms on any of my devices EVER!

You say the name could change... to what?...Search Protect, Conduit, Neon Nightmares???

As usual, you are working on the future whilst there are things in place NOW which need fixing.

I'm honestly excited to see how this works. I'm sure many people will be glad to see this is in the works. While I do agree that there are some other things that need to be fixed first, I look forward to the future. Perhaps I'm just being optimistic.

I just hope this doesn't eat up the battery life on my iPhone.
I also hope that it doesn't hog my phone, i.e. I cannot use other features on my iPhone because the "app" will close. This happened to me a lot when I used to have IMVU2GO on my iPad.

That reminds me!
Please add the wallpaper-opt-out to this new app too

I don't want the eyesores on my mobile phone, so I think I will not use it since
on iphones/ipads, there's a restricting limit to how much lower I can set the brightness >_<
unlike on the computer screen which is already enough!
Can't wait 'til October esp. when it isn't even a full-opt-out D: (<A serious sentence, not one out of excitement)

Thanks!!!
