Second Life gets voice

With the unveiling of its 'million minutes' promotion on Wednesday, Vivox is now enabling Second Life users to speak to each other via their phones.

That's a big step for Second Life, as the 3D virtual world does not have a default voice feature, as does There, from Makena Technologies. And that's because Linden Lab, the publisher of Second Life, has so far chosen not to integrate voice directly into the software.

C|Net gives the low down.
