Release Notes for Second Life 1.17.0(107) June 1, 2007

  • Group voice chat is available for both "formal" Second Life groups and ad hoc groups (as is the case for text chat).
  • Group voice chat for "formal" Second Life groups can be initiated by clicking on the Groups tab in the Chatterbox and double-clicking on the group with which you'd like to chat.
  • Group voice chat with two or more friends can be initiated by clicking on the Friends tab in the Chatterbox, selecting multiple friends from the list, and clicking the "Call/IM" button.
  • If you were speaking in a spatial voice channel prior to joining a group voice chat, you will return to the same spatial voice channel after leaving the group voice chat.
  • The Talk button on the Voice tab contains a volume indicator (a dot to the right of the button text "Talk") that shows how loudly YOU are speaking. Green indicates a normal volume, red indicates too loud a volume (a standard across speaking indicators for voice).

Known Issues

  • Users do not see a notification or visible invitation to group voice conversations. We expect this to be fixed in the next release, so users can accept or reject calls and receive feedback that they've successfully joined.
