Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of global technology company Tencent, has collaborated with Voicemod, one of the leading providers in augmented voice and interactive audio for the launch of a real-time voice-changing chat solution for games.
The partnership aims to bring immersive and rich gameplay for players by allowing them to customize their own voices – transforming them into their own, unique game characters, and talk with each other, Tencent said in a statement. Based in Spain, Voicemod is the leader in real-time audio augmentation. Developers trust Voicemod’s audio technology to help end-users create virtual voices and define their sonic identities.
Real-time chat solution
The new real-time voice-changing chat solution provides game developers with tools and templates and supports custom parameter adjustment that can be applied to voice messages as well as real-time voice chat. Through the new solution, an SDK set can change voices in real-time and customize the voice of any characters. It supports cross-platform applications on PC, mobile, and web, covering the demands of gamers across consoles and devices. Poshu Yeung, Senior Vice President, Tencent Cloud International, said:
“The quality of immersion in gaming has become more and more important among players, especially with the advent of the virtual world, where they can be anyone they can be. Through Tencent Cloud’s GME, which is a high-quality voice communication service trusted by companies and clients all around the world, and our collaboration with Voicemod, the newly launched real-time voice-changing chat solution has made it even more immersive for gamers and helps them become a truly integral part of the fantastic worlds and scenarios they are in.”
Jaime Bosch, CEO and Co-Founder of Voicemod said, “The newly introduced real-time voice-changing chat solution in collaboration with Tencent Cloud is a significant development for game developers. Not only does it help enhance player immersion and strengthen gaming styles, it also assists in driving game revenue growth and player interaction frequency. This new solution allows game developers to provide their players with more interactions, entertainment, and communication, as well as security and privacy, as it reduces the risk of personal and real voice leakage.”
