🚂 This release is all about locomotion so get on board & get jiggy with us! We’ve got lots of new moves to show you! Jump together through Portals and navigate Spatial in an entirely new way!
🦘Creating a Portal allows you to quickly jump from one Room to the next. Easily hop between Spaces and allow your friends to follow along, or not!
You can find Portals where the “Spaces” menu used to be. Use Portals to create seamless journeys through the Spatialverse! 😜
Finally you can navigate multiple levels in custom environments, with the ability to teleport onto all colliders. Roam freely up the stairs and around multiple levels!
This is an ability that can be turned on and off in the settings menu.
New Space Picker
Navigate between your personal room collection, shared team rooms, as well as community rooms or public events! See what’s going on in Spatial. Now all organized and easily discoverable! Plus, easily see who created a room!
Spatial, but make it move, make it come ALIVE! In case you missed it, we recently added support for animated models! Now you are able to switch between animations and start and stop them!
Need to see who is in the room with you? 🤝 Check out your new Subdock!
Your Subdock is also where you can leave the room you are in or invite others to join you.
😎 Your Avatar has a new look! It is now more realistic and moves more naturally! 💃
You will also notice additional motion options for Web App joiners.
You can now sign up for a personal Pro account & do so via Oculus Subscriptions in headset! Our pricing tiers now consist of Free, Pro, Teams, and Enterprise.
New Webcam Bubbles
Now your webcam feed can show up right on top of your avatar! Be immersed while sharing real time expressions.
