Get Past the Velvet Rope with VIP on IMVU

VIP Club Membership from IMVU gives you the tools and benefits to build your virtual world the way you want!

Go on, admit it, we have all tried out socializing in an avatar-based digital world… No? Well? get with the program! It can be hilarious. For most people, their first experience was in Second Life but the options have grown and there are now a plethora of these virtual worlds out there offering online chat, banter and even companionship and dating. There is something hugely addictive about these digital playgrounds and I know I have enjoyed chatting up complete strangers, laughing together at our over the top digital outfits or absurd animal avatars and chuckling when snubbed (usually in broken English) by outrageously rude users. One such platform that is seeing rapid user adoption is IMVU where high-quality 3D graphics and super creative options make it stand out from the crowd.

Available for iOS, Android and desktop users and boasting over 50 million registered users and 10 million unique visitors a month IMVU is clearly one to watch. The platform is booming and celebrated it’s fifteen birthday in 2019. Take a look at the video below to see how the avatars and platform have evolved.

New users can sign up easily, create their avatar and jump into the action meeting and chatting with people in virtual rooms. Users all get a personal homepage that is customizable with color themes, rearrangeable info panels, a personal blog where you can upload images and music and tell the world about yourself. IMVU also offers animated stickers to let you express your moods and the search function makes it easy to look for new people to meet. Rather than speaking into a microphone to chat and hearing other user’s real voices reply, like you can in Second Life, IMVU features 3D Avatar Chat where typing makes chat bubbles appear over your avatar’s head. This is much more practical for users commuting on the train or quietly chatting while at work, naughty, naughty. These chat bubbles automatically resize based on how much you type. You can click on a balloon to copy the text, and then paste to add text to a bubble. You can even paste in clickable URLs. Also, by clicking on a bubble, you can drag it down to reveal your chat history. This is a familiar and practical interface for all smartphone users.

More advanced and fun interactions are possible using Avatar Actions. You can easily express yourself with hundreds of Avatar Actions by clicking on your avatar to open the Actions Menu and select the animation you want to use or simply typing in the name of the action to trigger the animation. So typing LOL, wave, and even breakdance will make your avatar act it out! You can also shake hands, hug, hello, serenade, and even body slam your 3D avatars. Just click on the other person’s avatar and choose from the hundreds of fun animations.
