MingleVerse was founded in February of 2008 by Ron Stevens and Len Layton. The company headquarters can be found in Vancouver, British Columbia. The team consists of less than ten individuals, with Stevens standing in as President and CEO. MingleVerse was created to provide a consumer telepresence service. Today, many users utilize MingleVerse as a better way to communicate online.
Anyone can use voice chat programs like Ventrilo and TeamSpeak. They could host a server; however the sound quality may vary. The user will also have to find another way to share media (such as through a link). Overall, this approach may work for casual chatting but it is a little too cumbersome for professional or educational needs. MingleVerse has streamlined the features that usually go with voice chat and made it easier to supplement discussion with audio or video media.
MingleVerse uses a bold blue, black and white color scheme that creates an attractive contrast that appeals to casual and professional users. The site is well organized and easy to navigate. Users can create themselves on MingleVerse, choosing from realistic (and sometimes humorous) wardrobe options so the chat feels as though all participants are standing in the same room together.
A new user has two options for creating a MingleVerse account. Those with a Facebook profile that they are willing to connect can log in that way. A blue button can be found at the top right hand corner of the homepage to log in using Facebook. A green “Sign Up” button can be found along the left hand side of the homepage. This takes the user to the registration form. The form asks for a username, email address (entered twice), password, and agree to the terms of service. A check box is automatically checked to receive MingleVerse updates via email. The user can opt out by manually unchecking the box. After clicking the green “Sign up” button at the bottom of the form, the user is advised to check their email inbox for a verification code.
MingleVerse is available to users for free. Anyone can create an account and begin accessing MingleVerse features without paying anything for access. All features are made available. It should be noted that MingleVerse is currently listed as in beta. There is no word on whether the application will remain free after leaving beta. For now, anyone can create an account without paying any subscription fees.
Anyone with a reason to chat online can appreciate MingleVerse. The application provides a unique approach to online voice chat. The current beta status includes free user accounts, so for now anyone can enjoy MingleVerse without paying.
