Social XR Collaboration Platform ‘Spatial’ Now on Oculus Store for Quest

Originally posted on: www.roadtovr.com

Spatialthe social collaboration platform for XR devices, is now available for public download on Oculus Quest, which includes cross-platform support for HoloLens, Magic Leap One, Nreal, Web browsers, and iOS & Android mobile devices.

As a work-focused social app, Spatial puts heavy emphasis on productivity tools, including things such as an in-app browser, screen sharing abilities, support for multiple 2D/3D file types, communal whiteboards and sticky notes, and integration with Slack, Google Drive, One Drive, and Share Point.

The platform’s other claim to fame is its approach to avatars, as users can upload a selfie and generate a more realistic avatar than you might otherwise with the more cartoonish offerings in other social VR programs.

Notably, Spatial is available for free for individuals and groups who want to try it out. The free version lets you:

  • Host up to 30 people in a room
  • Host up to an additional 20 people from the webapp
  • Unlimited meeting length
  • Unlimited saved rooms
  • Up to 5GB of storage

For $20 a month, Spatial also includes unlimited storage and a dedicated team administration panel.

There’s still no word on whether PC VR headsets will eventually get support, however it seems Spatial is intent on keeping its platform mobile-first. You can download Spatial for Quest here.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
