Wide Gameplay Coverage

Wide Gameplay Coverage

For scenarios such as gaming, social networking and entertainment, GME comprehensively covers various types of voice-based gameplay. It provides voice chat, voice messaging and speech to text conversion services to meet mainstream voice needs such as voice-enabled team battling, game commanding, host broadcasting in turn and public messaging. Its proprietary 3D voice technology is ideal for creating an immersive gaming experience in scenarios such as battle royale and VR. Moreover, it makes gaming even more enjoyable with its amusing voice changing and karaoke features.

Ultimate Performance

Ultimate Performance

Thanks to its in-depth optimization for gaming, GME lowers voice delay down to 200 ms and CPU utilization down to below 10%, requires only small incremental packets for SDK and consumes less data traffic in cellular networks. Its packet loss recovery technology and packet loss compensation algorithm ensure smooth communication even in case of over 50% packet loss and 1,000 ms network jitter. Its patented algorithms for echo and ambient sound cancellation as well as noise and howling suppression help restore crystal clear sound quality. Further, its deep integration with the Wwise audio engine ingeniously solves the problem where the background sound quality of the game is degraded and the sound effects are lost when in-game voice is turned on.

Built based on the advanced audio and video technologies of QQ that have been verified by hundreds of millions of QQ users, GME serves over 400 audio, video, social networking and gaming customers across the full industry chain, sustaining more than 29 million voice calls of 120+ million minutes daily on average. It features real-time monitoring, remote disaster recovery and intelligent scheduling, which help ensure stable and reliable services, allow an unlimited number of voice room participants and reduce the crash rate to below 0.01%.

GME has been deeply optimized for mainstream game engines, including Unity, Cocos and UE. It supports major operating systems such as MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android.

After a new model is launched, GME can be intelligently adjusted for adaption in the cloud, eliminating the need to modify the client version.
