Vox is the name of the new MYETV‘s project aimed at free communication between people. Many messaging software-[Program/Software]: [the instructions that control what a computer does; computer programs] is inadequate for the purpose of protecting our customers’ privacy; for this reason we decided to build an entire platform-[Platform]: [the the set of the main domain and all the subdomain of a particular website; also the computer architecture and equipment using a particular operating system], exclusive to MYETV, to facilitate communication even between people not directly registered on the site. We have introduced VOX a few days ago, announcing that it would be ready soon. The functionality is not yet active worldwide, but we are trying to cascade it in all the countries where we are allowed. For more information, consult the project roadmap. Currently V.O.X. is turned on and supported in all these areas specified in the project roadmap.
