UPDATE ON 12/14/2015: The test has now concluded. Client Inbox is available to all users.


UPDATE ON NOV 10: If you are on client version 522.24 or up, you might be in the test segment. Half of the customers will be shown the current client Inbox while the other half will be re-directed to the website Inbox (for messages and notifications)

UPDATE ON NOV 04

Starting with our next client pre-release (522.20 and up), there is a change to the way you access your IMVU messages, missed chat invites and friend requests - they will all now be available on the IMVU website.

With 522.20 pre-release, when you click on the client Inbox, you will be automatically directed to the website (just like you are if you click on the Photo Stream or Groups mode button). There will be a dialog shown explaining the change the first time you do so.

You already have access to your messages on that page and now you will have an additional tab called "Notifications" which will have your friend requests, group requests, and missed chat invites.



There is no changes to the Messages tab on the web page - you can choose to view your messages in the new "conversation" style view or the classic style view.



All your messages that you have not deleted or archived are still there - only on the website instead of in the client Inbox.

If you get a pop-up notification about a received message while in the client, they will also lead you to the web inbox.

Get Matched Notifications will now be shown within the Get Matched feature in the client.

Why the change?

We are consolidating the two different types of messaging systems we are maintaining in the backend to make the experience streamlined and efficient.

We hope this also makes it easier for all of you to know that all your messages and notifications are in one place - where you also have the choice to use the conversation style messaging system.

I will update here when the client version with this change is available for downloading.

Thank you

So, with pretty decorations, this announcement just says "we're removing the client's inbox" and adding a new tab to the website

Why not make a new one for the cient instead? Why only remove it? That's a lazy move. If you want to unify, make them the same, but one in client and another in website.

Because maybe some people who only use the client don't feel like opening the browser only to check on messages.

And because the client's inbox load ways faster, and allows you to jump to pages from time ago way faster

This is really deceptionating... it doesn't improve our imvu experience, it makes it worse, forcing us to open a browser that maybe we don't want, if we're using the client. we had a very easy, fast and quick way of checking messages there

I really don't like this idea at all, with these kind of changes why does imvu never even ask their users if they would actually like this idea? I really can't be bothered to open up a browser tab just to check my messages, i think the clients inbox is fine the way it is. it's a way easier and faster way to check your messages and go through pages.

In my opinion this update will only cause trouble, and annoyed users..

I really hope this can be reconsidered.

So the "Real Time" message notifications when a user is in client are going away as well? That is pretty silly. Some users prefer to use the client based message platform to take orders, communicate and such for customs. You are making every user now go around their elbow to get to their a$$. Why? What is the meaning behind it or the purpose?

Mod hat off

I agree with all of that ^

Please keep the Inbox feature on the client. I like it the way it currently is right now. When I am on the client, I most times use the Client's Inbox instead of the website version.
It is handy, fast and easy to use. I will definatly miss it when its gone.

I'm just flummoxed. Flabbergasted even. Why in the name of all that is holy would you even consider doing a thing like this?

I honestly don't know why this shocks me when you have obviously not been listening to any of us when it comes to recent changes. Users seem to overwhelmingly hate IMVU Next, yet you continue with that farce. Most of the people I've seen talking about your IMVU+ stuff also are not happy at all about it...and that isn't stopping you from pushing that on us. So I don't know why you wouldn't choose to make a change like this...a change that is going to inconvenience EVERYONE.

You're going to take away a feature in the client that I (along with most others) use every single day and then improve that stupid "Get Matched" junk that I, for one, have never even touched. Way to go, IMVU. Way to "relate" to your customer base.

Phase 1 of killing off the client: done.

What's next on the hit list?

I am not in favor of this change.

While I do most of my messaging via the web site, when I am in an active chat I use the client-based messages. Having the notification open the web site causes lag and delay...that's not what I want whilst in an active chat.

A really poor decision... im not even considering them removing the pop up instant notification for messages when we are online as that would be even more pointless, they cant be that idiotic, can they? Does no one ever challenge bad ideas there?

Wow just wow i know of loads of userss who now won't be reading messages at all. They cannot run the client and have web browsers open without hitting major issues and i can pretty much say this they ain't going to so signing off and on all the time just so they can read their inboxes.

I have several hundred saved messages, I often enjoy going back and reading very early messages from friends or using the client inbox to search through them to find something important. The website version only allows you to go back 10 pages and if you delete just one message you get thrown back to page 1.

This move effectively makes everything except the first 100 messages lost unless you start deleting loads. I have no idea if the crappy new inbox version allows more because I can't use it due to lag and freezing.

This is yet another downgrade being passed off with the usual "backend" excuse.

I know IMVU are trying to force people off the client and onto things like NEXT so that they can quote dwindling usage figures when they finally kill off the client but this is despicable.
