Razer Comms Beta connects gamers around the world

When it comes to gaming, there is one name that would definitely resonate with gamers – whether they are casual or hardcore, it does not matter. Razer is a name that has rolled out its fair share of hardware, be they mice, mouse pads, or keyboards (and even tablets recently), not to mention marrying such high-tech hardware to software apps that get the job done. Well, Razer’s latest effort would come in the form of the Razer Comms that is currently in Beta format, where it will help to connect gamers around the world. Let us learn more about Razer Comms in the extended story.

 In a nutshell, Razer Comms is an all-in-one communications solution for gamers. After taking in feedback that were gleaned from a community-based closed beta program, Razer Comms will now see the incorporation of VoIP client, instant messaging and IRC-chat features, where it will enable gamers all over the world to hook up to a single service, all without having to fork out an additional cent. After all, times are hard, and this is another example that there is a free lunch after all. Not only that, Razer Comms also boasts of an in-game overlay that will seamlessly integrate with PC games, delivering uninterrupted gameplay while at the same time typing or talking with friends.

Razer Comms will rely on the implementation of complex audio algorithms as well as an ultra-fast server infrastructure in order to deliver precise, crisp and clear communication without any danger of timeouts or lag spikes. Not only that, it also features advanced noise reduction and echo cancellation, which will definitely be a boon to the millions of PC gamers around the world.

The history of Razer Comms is a rather interesting one, where it came about as an internal project that was built on the spare “10 percent passion time” of a couple of engineers (sounds a bit like Google, no?). After taking in their fair share of fan requests to make it widely available, Razer Comms is now a fully supported project with a specially designated team working on it. Let’s hope that when Razer Comms is no longer in beta, it would be a game changer, pun not intended.
