UPDATES

Meet the WithMoji Shop

Group Stickers now available

Chat and message with multiple friends

New purchased are now ordered as most recent ones first!

Credits can now be purchased directly on IMVU Next

************************************************************
It's been a while that we have provided an official update about IMVU Next so here you go... see what exciting additions have been made on Next and what is coming "Next"!

For your reference here and here are my earlier posts on the topic:

You can access Next anytime from your IMVU account by clicking on the menu option on the navigation bar on our website or simply going directly there.

So what is the summary version about IMVU Next?

SHOP - Clothing and accessories at this time and you can gift and wishlist items.

DRESS UP - Your collection of dress up items.

CHAT - Use Chat Now (one to one chats) and meet people or explore public chat rooms (no private rooms or "My Room" yet as a separate tab but if you invite someone from their profile card or accept a private chat invite you will be in your own or their room).

MESSAGES- New conversational-style messaging plus 3D Stickers
Feed - An enhanced version of Photo Stream (and pulse with text posts) with the exclusive Photo Booth feature.

EARN CREDITS - Earn free Credits from our partners by watching videos, taking surveys, completing offers etc.

ACTIVITY CENTER - One single place to see whose chat invites you missed as well as who liked and commented on your photos.

CREDIT STORE - Shop for Credits, bundles, and more by navigating to our Credit store.

AVATAR MENU IN UPPER RIGHT CORNER:

IMVU Labs - Check out what apps and games are being developed using our Unity-based API.

Edit Profile - Choose a Display Name or edit other details for your avatar card.

Privacy options - Choose to appear online/offline and show or not show your room location on your profile.

Settings - Customize your experience on Next regarding animations for 3D Stickers, using IMVU in high resolution, and turning on or off your notifications.

Read on for details about many recent and upcoming enhancements:

FEED

Love seeing what your friends have shared via their photos and text posts as well as exploring the recommended posts? Now that "task" is easier and more fun than ever with our newly launched "grid" view. You can choose to view the posts in a single column by scrolling through them as before or view multiple ones at a time for easy browsing. Plus you can also select text only and/or photos only feed posts for better control.



I know all you photo streamers out there are going to love this feature! Of course you can share your own text posts (with colored backgrounds) and photos (including via the Photo Booth). Photos taken from the camera tools available on Next when you are in chat also get posted to the Feed. We will be working on adding camera tools to the Dress Up feature next.

PHOTO BOOTH

This feature is much loved and used by many of you since it launch and is available exclusively on IMVU Next and our mobile apps. Coming soon...we will be changing the IMVU-provided backgrounds more frequently and have a wider selection available for all your photo-taking needs.

Of course, you can always make your own background by uploading any image from your computer or smartphone too.



ACTIVITY CENTER

Talking about Feed, want to know who was trying to invite you to chat, who liked your photos, and who posted comments on them? All that information is available in one place - Activity center!

SHOP

We are still working on adding rooms, furniture, actions, avatars etc to the list of things you can shop for but meanwhile the product cards have been enhanced to show some products from that Creator as well as a few recommendations - this will continue to be enhanced to make shopping fun and allow our Creators to be featured front and center.



CHAT

Check out the improved Chat Now feature where you can see the profile card of a user who leaves chat and then send them a friend request.

Plus. we have added a few avatar - single and cooperative - actions to the chat feature and are working on making this interactive experience even better.

STATUS INDICATOR

I know you have been asking for this! Yes, you can now use IMVU Next to check your messages etc and set your status indicator to be offline so that your friends do not think you are ignoring them!



3D STICKERS

Our collection of fun 3D Stickers keeps growing and the possibilities of how you can star in your own animated emojis aka 3D Stickers are infinite. Unlike other emojis and stickers, you don't just use what is available to you in the app but make it your own with a customized avatar and outfit to suit your every mood.

So check out IMVU Next at your convenience, have fun with all the exclusive features and enhancements and let us know what you think!

There are lots of ongoing updates and many that I have not mentioned here... so just keep checking in!

FAQs:

Are teams working on improving/changing features like Shop and Dress Up?

Yes! We have a list of things that will be done (many based on your feedback) and they will be worked on. I will update as relevant changes are available on IMVU Next for all of you to see.

Where are groups, forums etc?

We don't intend to present IMVU Next as a replacement to IMVU Original and hence each and every feature available will not be available on IMVU Next. Of course, there will be features available on newer platforms (Photo Booth, Stickers etc) that will not be available on imvu.com website or the client.

Users have been asking for that feature forever for the regular client. Any chance it could happen now? Please? Smile

"DRESS UP - Your collection of dress up items."

Nothing has changed here at all - it still starts out with the oldest items in my Inventory: the noob crap from 2007?! Stuff that I know I have hidden?! Seriously? Rolling Eyes

This all sounds great! I just have one question: Is taking photos while in chat via Next possible? I can't see how to do it - the camera symbol is there, but how do you actually take the pic? Super frustrating when you want to take a pic and upload it to your feed, but can't. Is this a feature already available... or coming soon?

It is available now! Click on the camera icon and zoom in our out to capture your shot. Then share it to the feed directly.

Still nothing about how to acces groups or how to get to the forums.

Still no mentioning about the mess in the wardrobe. My outfits are nowhere to be found.

Still no mentioning about the lists in the Dress Up we, as VIP, are allowed to use. Very handy feature

I have a large wardrobe and it's an absolute mess in there when I look at it in IMVU NEXT. It's not using the same product pictures as the site and the client. I can hardly find anything. Even products I have for a very long time, look alien to me now.

Shopping.. still not possible to shop while using the mesh as base.

As long as these things are not implemented, I see no reason to switch to IMVU NEXT.

Thank you for the update. Thank you for trying to make next fill a gap for users who prefer a web based experience.

I have tried next, and there's so many things that are seriously lacking. One thing that's really annoying, I can't zoom in for a close up on my avatar for a picture. It gets all grainy/pixelated/whateverthewordis. Another, dancing with another avatar is out of sync.

As previously mentioned too, the wardrobe - specifically pictures of items - terrible. Awful. One thing that always kept me here rather than SL was how color rich and beautiful imvu is. Now, we have the land of b & w where it relates to product images. Blah.

I can't make the switch from the client to Next. As long as I have a laptop I'll be using the client. I can see Next for tablet users, and mobile for phone users. The long view being, what..? The end of desktops and laptops? Sure, but not while the baby boomers are still walking the earth. lol.

Is the client dying? Is imvu dying? Where there used to be over 100k users chatting now reports under 50k. Sad days ahead. Sad

When are you going to do something about these god awful icons?

These are eyes. EYES.


Oh yes this shows off my earrings so well.


Great view of the product here.


Yup these fangs look great, I'd totally buy these.

I've noticed several features we've been begging for client, are being used for Next. I'd like to see them in both.

Status indicator for offline mode and photostream grid view are awesome!!! I think im ready to move to the Next messaging screen for now, testing it as we speak ^^ Also would like to test the collaborative actions while in 3d chat as huggers persons like me have a hard time when unable to hug in next lolol.

Shop and other features still need a bit polishing but so far the changes are good looking ^^
