Razer, a company best known for its gaming mice and keyboards, has been branching out in recent years. From its Razer Blade laptops to Edge portable gaming devices to the upcoming Nabu wearable, the company has moved beyond peripherals.
The company’s latest project, Comms, has it competing with Skype, TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, and other voice over IP (VOIP) services. Comms is a gaming-focused communication platform that is currently available on PC, Mac, and Android (iOS is coming soon) that offers text-based messaging as well as voice calling.
According to Razer, the beta version of Comms has over 1 million users since becoming available in January 2014. Razer says it has caught on partly because of a feature that allows League of Legends players to automatically get placed in a voice channel with others using the software. The idea is to make it easy for teams of random players to communicate via voice since League requires strategic coordination.
