IMVU, Inc. Key Developments

IMVU Launches 3D Stickers

IMVU launched 3D Stickers. A game changer in the messenger category, 3D Stickers take traditional emojis to the next level by enabling users' own fully customized avatars to perform popular actions and emotions (as .gifs). The stickers add an entirely new dimension of emotion to messaging by bringing users' conversations to life. As a result, users are able to connect on a deeper level with people from anywhere in the world. Text-based messaging has evolved into its own language as a simple, fast, and efficient method of communication. However, limited intent, tone, and emotion suggest some meaning is lost on the recipient, even with added emphasis using static or animated emojis. On top of basic messaging functionality, the new feature has a simple and intuitive user interface. Within IMVU's Messaging function, a user has the ability to text their friends, add one of present 20+ different emotion icons, and bring their avatar and conversation to life. IMVU's 3D Stickers are now available on IMVU Next and IMVU Mobile (iOS and Android).
