Yesterday, it was announced that Vivox is releasing a SDK for the Nintendo Switch, allowing developers to add text and voice chat functionalities to their multiplayer games. Vivox is used in some high profiles games, including the extremely popular Fortnite. It’s a pretty big deal for developers, especially indies, because of a lack of global chat system on Nintendo Switch, but also because Vivox offers cross-platform support. Also: the SDK is free for small studios and indies.
According to Vivox, this SDK release is something they have been working with Nintendo for a few months already. And it looks like we won’t have to wait months before seeing more games using the SDK: Hi-Rez will start using it for Paladins and SMITE.
