Some environments come with a Shared Wall. This is a central space to display 2D content. For environments without walls, the Shared Wall is especially helpful for neatly organizing your photos, videos, NFTs, documents, and more. Note that each space can have a maximum of one shared wall.
Take a seat! This is a snap-to-seat feature that allows guests to precisely position their avatar on virtual seating. You'll know you've found a seat hotspot when the green arrow appears when you click or teleport. Hotspots are featured in certain pre-set environments.
