Razer, the company most well known for making gaming-focused PCs and laptops, will soon launch its very own Pokémon GO chat application. The service is called RazerGo, and will be available in the form of Android and iOS apps around the July 25 mark, depending on how quickly the Play Store and App Store approve of the apps. A web version of the service will go online today at 10PM EST/9PM CST.

Pokémon GO is notoriously communication-free, meaning there’s basically no way for players to talk to one another within the app itself. There are, however, a few third-party apps already available in the Google Play Store for chatting, but one of the most popular apps is struggling quite a bit.

Razer hopes RazerGo will be players' go-to chat app for Pokémon GO
Razer hopes RazerGo will be players’ go-to chat app for Pokémon GO. As reported by The Verge, RazerGo is location-aware and will allow users to find and talk to other players within a radius of 3, 60 or 600 miles. Players can also join public chats, talk only with members on the same team, or privately talk with one another. Razer is also planning a feature for the app that will let players drop beacons to open a chat room that’s only available near them.

If you’re near San Francisco and happen to be interested in the new app, Razer will be hosting “pokécrawls” near its brick-and-mortar store tonight at 6PM PST. The exact locations of these pokécrawls will be announced on its Facebook and Twitter channels, so be on the lookout for more details later today.
