What is Social VR?

Be together in a more natural way than a phone call, text or video chat. One click and you’re in a virtual space with people you care about. Our newest VR Call feature brings you even closer to being there in person.

VR with friends

Travel to a desert island, get lost in a maze, check out a dungeon, tea house, and a cozy living room. Be together with friends or meet new people. New environments, events and experiences are added often.

Social VR

Be together whenever, wherever

Make a VR Call from your phone to easily get together with the people you care about in VR. Want to meet new people? Our Welcome Space is always hopping.

Cross Platform

Available on Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or in 2D on your Mac or PC.

The Potential of Shared Virtual Reality | Bruce Wooden | TEDxGeneva

Virtual Reality is a burgeoning industry that is generating much excitement in tech circles.

Bruce speaks about his personal experiences with shared virtual reality, the surprises and epiphanies along the way, and the impact it can have on human communication at this early stage.

Bruce Wooden is Head of Developer Relations at AltspaceVR, a virtual reality interactive communications platform and leader in the Social VR space.

Known in VR circles as Cymatic Bruce, he has been an active industry evangelist since 2013, has participated in more than 700 VR experiences, and accrued millions of views on video and live-streamed content. Bruce co-founded Silicon Valley Virtual Reality (SVVR) in May 2013, a meetup group which has grown to 3,000 members and hosts an annual conference.

He hosted a regular show on VR experiences (SundayVR), and frequently speaks at industry events.
