Gaming company Razer releases Razer Comms app for Android, syncs calls and texts to PC

Razer Comms

Razer is a fairly young company (with a fairly young CEO) that makes gaming peripherals–and some damn good ones at that. I’m a big fan. The company has also dipped into software, creating Synapse software that syncs your peripheral settings and macros to an account across computers. It took a while to get this software into a good state, but the company used this expertise to make Razer Comms.

Razer Comms is communication software for the gamer. Skype can be resource and internet intensive, and other services can be flaky and cause issues during gaming. That’s where Razer Comms comes in. It aims to solve this by being light on resources, having extremely low latency and integrating into some games like League of Legends.

The new Razer Comms app for Android can send messages and call people on your Comms friends list, whether they are on a PC or an Android device. But best of all, this app can forward calls and text messages to your PC so you can text and answer calls while in-game on your computer. No more picking up your phone and moving away from the game.

It’s a pretty dang cool app for gamers. Even if you don’t have any friends who use Razer Comms, the SMS and call sync feature should be enough to pique your interest. Hit the source link to download it for Windows, and use the widget to install the Android app. Then tell us how you like it!

    I use the RAZR Game Booster religiously… Looks like I will have to add to my RAZR library.

    Those are some nice features. I would totally use this but between Steam and Google Voice I already have those things covered. This does seem like it would integrate them in game better but it would also require getting all my friends to install and get accounts.

    I have been using Comms with a buddy for a little while now. Works fairly well on the PC. Downloaded it during the beta for Android but haven’t tried calling on it yet. Sends and receives messages no problem though and easy to use.

    Pretty cool.
