Guests can also text-chat, regardless of Synch Mode status.

Vyew – (pronounced ‘view’) was born of a vision to merge virtual space with human interaction, empowering users to communicate and collaborate with each other remotely. Through Vyew, you can “Share Your View”. The Y in Vyew is representative of “Your”. Of course, the name “Vyew” is also unique, short and easy to remember.
Vyew Room – A workspace/meeting room where collaboration takes place. A Vyew Room also holds all content in pages created during the meeting for use persistantly (available anytime). Please watch the Getting Started Demo for an introduction to Vyew.
