For Immediate Release:                                                                                                                             

CARLSBAD, Calif. – Dec. 12, 2013 – Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced the launch of the Android version of Razer Comms, its all-in-one communications solution for gamers.

The all-new Razer Comms Android app will allow gamers to take their Razer Comms experience mobile by allowing calls and messages to be made from in-game to Android phones and from Android phones to users who are in-game on the Razer Comms PC client.

“Staying connected in today’s world has become increasingly important and gamers are no exception to that,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “Razer Comms solves that by being the world’s first VoIP solution to allow gamers to make VoIP calls or instant message with their friends on the road from in-game and vice versa.”

New Features:

1.      In-game to Android/Android to in-game phone messaging and calls: PC gamers can now call or message their friends from within the game (no alt-tabbing required) and the other way round.

2.      Stay in the Game: The new update to the Razer Comms PC client allows gamers to reply to text messages or reject calls from their Android phones within the PC client, effectively eliminating the need for gamers to check their smartphones occasionally or to leave a game while in play.

3.      Compatible with Android phones and tablets.

An iOS version of Razer Comms is tentatively scheduled for early 2014.
