About AltspaceVR and Social VR

AltspaceVRSocial VR at its core is the idea of “social presence”, feeling as if you are in the same room with another person via VR and making an emotional connection with that person.

Through AltspaceVR, you can share a room and the web with anyone in the world. Attend or create events, share web content with others in real time, browse the web, and play web powered 3D apps. AltspaceVR is a shared VR experience – a communication platform focused on natural communication, intuitive UI, and real-time sharing of web content. Users in AltspaceVR can watch Netflix or YouTube, play tabletop games, or give a presentation – together and entirely inside of VR. Developers can use the AltspaceVR SDK to easily build VR apps and experiences. AltspaceVR has raised $15.5M in funding from investors including Tencent and Google Ventures.
