The new online tool also enables users to play YouTube videos in their virtual TVs and show photos in virtual picture frames inside their Lively rooms. According to Google, the Lively chat rooms can also be embedded in blogs and websites.

Niniane Wang, an engineering manager at Google, has developed Lively as a part of Google’s 20 per cent project that allows the company’s employees to spend one day a week working on projects outside their day-to-day responsibilities.

“The Lively team wants to help people experience another dimension of the web. We hope you will use the product to express yourself with and without words, and to do this in the places you already visit on the web,” Niniane Wang writes on the Google blog.
