Tencent Cloud is to support Metalife, a new communication tool from Japan that can be used as an office, event venue, classroom, remote workspace and meeting room in the Metaverse. 

On the platform, Tencent Cloud Media Services including Tencent Real-Time Communication (TRTC), along with a suite of audio and video solutions, are set to be integrated for users to realistically communicate anytime, anywhere as an avatar in the virtual world.

Tencent Cloud supports Metalife to allow users to connect in an immersive, virtual environment through its TRTC technologies, enabling enterprises to build interactive live streaming services with minimal lags, and a global end-to-end latency of below 300 milliseconds.

Poshu Yeung, Senior Vice President, Tencent Cloud International, said: “The advent of technologies that power the Metaverse, allows businesses and enterprises of all sizes and from various fields to create virtual worlds of their own, and opens doors of opportunity to widen their reach and audience-base. Tencent Cloud is pleased to have its high-quality solutions as a leading choice to assist companies and organizations like Metalife in this digitalization journey.”

Kiyoshi Kondo, Chief Executive Officer, Metalife, said: “Metalife is pleased to benefit from Tencent Cloud and its cost-effective, highly compatible and high-performing TRTC to allow our users to communicate better in the Metaverse through their avatars.”
