Voice chat has (finally) been added using FreeSwitch, described as a "scalable open source [free software] cross-platform telephony platform" or multi-protocol soft switch. By default, it has been enabled in all areas of the grid, although land owners may or may not choose to switch it off on their parcels in future.

Note that a section on voice has been added to the terms of service, which notes that no users should be put under pressure to use voice chat in this grid, which will be regarded as a form of bullying. Please respect people's preferences in this regard as in others.
