VIVOX® KEEPS VIDEO GAME COMMUNITIES CONNECTED WITH THE VIVOX VOICE TOOLBAR
Interoperable Browser-Based Chat Allows Gamers to Easily Connect with Friends and Navigate the Web Without Breaking the Connection
NATICK, Mass. – March 18, 2009 — Vivox, Inc. (www.vivox.com), the market leader in voice services for games and virtual worlds, today unveiled the Vivox Voice Toolbar, a simple and powerful browser-based solution that enables developers of online casual games, virtual worlds and massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) to connect players through voice chat. Chat with an online poker buddy while playing a tournament. Imagine being on your guild’s website and asking for help to take down a mob you have been camping for days. Call into an event with your favorite blogger from your car to get the scoop on the most recent news. The Vivox Voice Toolbar seamlessly connects you with the people you want to talk to. The Vivox Voice Toolbar gives game developers access to all the features, scale, reach and stability of the Vivox Network. It is a powerful tool for game titles that have an active ingame community and would like to extend the community to the web. Any game or virtual world can enhance the community and extend game play with a simple integration and minimal business risk. “With the emergence of Web 2.0, game developers and publishers have been reviewing their web strategies, aiming to incorporate the best community-building tools to keep their customers connected to one another and to their products,” said Monty Sharma, vice president at Vivox. “Practically everything in the world today has a web-based community. The initial targets for the Vivox Voice Toolbar are web-based games with interest in developing their communities. Adding voice will bring a whole new social experience to these players and advanced opportunities for growth for the game developers. In addition, we are looking forward to working with a number of our partners to enhance the web experience for their established communities.” The Vivox Voice Toolbar offers high-quality voice chat for dynamic and persistent channels associated with your community. Dial-in phone numbers are also available for users to connect when offline. In addition, a full set of widgets are provided to developers, allowing

them to create a unique communication experience. As with all Vivox products, the voice traffic is handled by the Vivox Network that presently supports more than 10 million users from around the world and is supported 24/7 by a team of seasoned communication professionals. Vivox will be showing the Voice Toolbar in booth #6314 North Hall at the Game Developer Conference at The Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, March 25-27, 2009. ### About Vivox, Inc.
