Q. Why can't I share my screen?
A. If the host of a space has disabled "allow adding content" via Host Tools, guests won't see the Share Screen button at the bottom. If you don't see the Share Screen icon in a space, ask the space owner to appoint you as a Host to access this feature.
Q. How can I adjust my screen share quality?
A. Click the (...) menu in the lower right and click Settings. Click Screen Share to adjust your screen share performance settings.
Q. Can several screens be shared in a Spatial space at once?
A. Yes! Multiple users can share their screen in a single Spatial space. Only one window, tab, or desktop can be streamed per user at one time.
Q. Can I record an event in Spatial?
A. Yes, there are a few ways to do this:
- Record via screen capture on your mobile/computer device.
- Record using Loom.com to easily share a link to the video recording with others. Loom is a great option if you need to record audio (microphone input and Spatial audio output).
