IMVU Desktop is a not-so-new desktop chat software that was released to prepare for Apple’s new version of macOS where Apple announced they will no longer support 32-bits apps (the IMVU legacy chat software is a 32-bits app).
In order not to lose all the apple IMVU users, IMVU had to act fast, so they created the IMVU Desktop chat software which was released as a beta desktop application for Mac users only.
