vTime is revealed as the only sociable network available at launch for the upcoming Microsoft hardware
(August 28th, 2017 – Liverpool, UK) vTime, The Sociable Network, today announces details of a global partnership with Microsoft, the world’s largest software company. vTime will launch its cross-platform, social VR experience across all new Windows Mixed Reality devices in Q4, 2017. Part of a stellar line-up of launch titles for the highly-anticipated platform, vTime’s collaboration with Microsoft gives millions of Windows 10 users the opportunity to meet, chat and share in incredible virtual destinations from this October.
vTime takes advantage of many Windows Mixed
Reality features, including the ‘See It, Say It’ functionality. Working
alongside vTime’s gaze-driven menu systems, the feature
allows Windows users to amplify their sociable experience with voice control.
Powered by Cortana technology, users can simply say commands such as ‘add
friend’ or ‘selfie’ instead of manually selecting the item on the menu.
vTime also supports the Microsoft motion controllers, allowing users to bring their real hands into conversations with lifelike gestures, while the headset’s inside-out tracking capabilities allows conversational body movement to be replicated within the vTime destinations without the need for tracking sensors.
Used around the world for socialising, business meetings, dating and more, Windows Mixed Reality users will be welcomed into vTime’s already global community. With almost 700,000 downloads to-date across Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, Google Cardboard, Android and iOS, the addition of a new high-end platform opens vTime to an even wider audience, and one that moves beyond the early adopter.
vTime Managing Director Clemens Wangerin said: "We’re proud that vTime is partnering with Microsoft to support the launch of Windows Mixed Reality. From its inception, vTime was designed for the masses, and to be an experience that people use daily. Microsoft and its OEMs are set to deliver an incredibly compelling proposition to the mass consumer market, and we're delighted that vTime will be central to many people's first Windows Mixed Reality experience."
vTime for Windows Mixed Reality will be available at launch from mid-October via the Windows Store
