Skillz, the worldwide leader in mobile eSports, today unveiled chat and friends systems cross-platform and cross-app as part of the Skillz Tournament Management System. The new social technology, available immediately, is the first integrated chat experience to connect millions of gamers across thousands of games on both iOS and Android.
While chat programs have been a staple of the console gaming experience on platforms such as Sony’s Playstation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Live, the functionality for mobile gamers has been much more limited until now. Mobile gamers previously had to choose between non-integrated chat experiences such as those offered by companies like Discord and game-specific chat programs such as those found in games including Mobile Strike by Machine Zone. In contrast, the Skillz chat functionality is the first cross-studio, cross-platform, integrated chat experience on mobile.
