Object Menu

Avatar Menu

1. Volume: Changes the volume of the user's audio. (Doesn't affect the volume for others in the room.)

2. Hide: Hides a user's avatar and audio from you. This only applies to the current session; once you refresh you will see them again. Other room members can still see and hear the user.

Note that video recordings are temporarily saved to browser storage; a recording in progress may be lost if the browser runs out of space. If you wish to record an event we recommend using a screen recording tool such as OBS.

Emoji Spawners

A menu of emoji spawners is displayed when you display object or avatar menus.

The emoji menu lets you spawn a grabbable emoji that emits particles when shaken. The emoji is deleted a few seconds after you let go of it.

Invite Menu

The "Invite" button opens a dialog with the information you need in order to share the room with others, so they can join you in the room.

You can copy or share the URL or use the numeric code to share a link verbally. Note that numeric codes expire after 72 hours.

The iframe HTML code (displayed if you have room permissions) lets you embed the room in a web page.
