Over the years, Razer has spread its wings and expanded into much more than just mice and keyboards for gamers. This, however, may be one of its most broad initiatives to date. Razer Comms is the new product from the company, launching as an open beta and described as an "all-in-one communications solution for gamers." Applying feedback gleaned from a community-based closed beta program, Razer Comms now combines VoIP client, instant messaging and IRC-chat features, allowing gamers the world over to connect with one service, free of charge. It also features an in-game overlay and seamlessly integrates with PC games, providing for uninterrupted gameplay while at the same time typing or talking with friends.

Razer Comms uses complex audio algorithms and an ultra-fast server infrastructure to deliver precise, crisp and clear communication with no timeouts or lag spikes, and it features advanced noise reduction and echo cancelation. Razer Comms originated as an internal project built on the spare “10 percent passion time” of a couple of engineers. After receiving many fan requests to make it widely available, Razer Comms has now become a fully supported project with a designated team working on it.

Could be interesting. Can't say I'm too keen on it overlaying a bunch of stuff on my game though. Not a big fan for on-screen clutter blocking out my gaming view.

Might give it a try though, just to see how I like it.

Yeah this could be interesting for sure. Since I run dual monitors if I could keep it over on the second screen so I don't have to worry about the overlay it could be real nice.

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630

no alt tab would be perfect for my friends pc. If he alt tabs out of a game like star craft or anything else it causes a huge slow down and takes him forever to get back up
