Your Device

If you tidy yourself up to attend an offline conference, we need to prepare your device to attend a virtual event.

Your device settings

Hello! My name is...

Just like at an offline event, you need a badge. In SpatialChat, this is a profile picture and description. Here's how to set them:

How to upload your profile picture

Personal description

Space

Space is a virtual area you create. It can contain a different number of rooms.

Being an admin, you can customize your space according to your needs.

How to customize your space

The space name and space ID can be changed. ID is the name of your space in the Space URL.

How to change the space name and space ID

Entering a room

When you enter any room, you will see only a small part of the whole room. You can choose a scale of the screen after entering the room, clicking on the right bottom button, and choose the best option. You may also use the scroll wheel or do it by tapping your device's screen to change zoom settings.

Room

The Room is a part of the space. You can have several rooms in the space according to your plan.

There are different types of rooms in the Space (Breakout, Stage, Audio). You can check detailed information in the following article. Further, we will talk about the Breakout room mostly. 

Moving between rooms

When you press the "Join Space" button, you will be taken to one of the rooms.

One picture, instead of a thousand words:

If suddenly you do not see a list of rooms, take a look at this article:

How to move between rooms

Moving inside the room

Just click on your circle and drag it to any other location. Your background will move among your avatar as you navigate through the room, even if it's zoomed to the maximum (250%). So no more searching yourself around the corners of the screen.

You can find your bubble by clicking on your name on the right panel.

Circle/bubble

A circle or bubble shows your position in space. With your camera on, it will show your video stream. With your camera off, it will show your profile picture if you uploaded it before signing in. If not, it will show the first letter of your name.

Share

Anyone can add a picture, video, gif, or share their screen (if there are no restrictions in the room).

Any content that the user has shared will disappear after that user leaves the room. For example, if the user will move to another room or close the browser tab.

Chat

By clicking on this button, you can send emojis or any text. There can also be some links.

The Megaphone!

As you already know, SpatialChat rooms feature dynamic volume. So the volume at which you and other guests hear each other changes according to your circles’ distance from each other, just like in a real room.

But sometimes, you need the whole room to hear you equally well. That’s where the Megaphone comes in handy.

Just like the iconic street meetings and parades of the golden age, the Megaphone allows a user to be heard at the same volume all across the room.

Leave Space

This button will take you to the welcome page. For example, to upload a profile picture or change the description.
