Frequently Asked Questions

A VRoom (VR room) is a virtual environment where you navigate with the use of an Avatar. You can meet-up with others by sharing your specific VRoom links or by entering another person’s VRoom.  VRooms can be used for personal or business purposes. A VRoom can range from a small boardroom to an entire Village. Each VRoom has a unique web link. If you want private VRooms you need to register as a free member.

A private VRoom is enabled when you set up your account. Click on Get Started Now button. After your registered with your private VRooms you will need to share your unique links with your contacts in order for others to join you. Your unique links can be shared by text, email and on all social media platforms. It only takes seconds to send a link and have someone enter your VRoom.

The public VRooms are listed on the Company website. There is currently 12 public VRooms featured. Anyone can randomly drop into a public VRoom at any time.

We recommend you set-up a free account so you receive your 12 FREE private VRooms.

We recommend a maximum of 25 in-room participants. This capacity is the default because low power devices, such as mobile phones and standalone VR headsets, may begin experiencing performance issues in busier rooms. Once a room is full, all additional users (participant #26 and beyond) can still participate by watching from the lobby. Users in the lobby can see what's happening in the room and interact via text chat; however, they are not represented as avatars in the room and their mic is not active.
VRooms stay open forever unless you choose the 'close room' option from the drop down menu. Unless a room has been 'closed' you will always be able to use the URL to revisit your room. If you plan to revisit a room, you might choose to add it to your favorites for easy access.
VRooms have the ability to play videos in the room, which allows you to watch with friends or live stream content from an existing stream. For videos, Utopia supports standard video formats. Live stream content is supported in the HLS format. You can embed videos from popular video hosting websites like YouTube and Twitch, but due to high load these may sometimes be unreliable.
VRooms are great for giving presentations. Supported media types are pdf files, images, 3D models, audio, video, webcam input, and screen sharing. To use a powerpoint in VRooms, you can convert it to a .pdf file and import it directly into VRooms, or you can use screen sharing to stream a view of your presentation into VRooms.
Because it runs in the browser, VRooms are very cross-platform compatible. It works on mobile, desktop, and VR devices, and runs on most modern browsers. For a VR experience, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, HTC Vive, Pico Neo 2, Oculus Quest and Oculus Go,  Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard.
The pen in VRooms doubles as a laser pointer tool. When the pen is emitting a laser, you will see a line going from your avatar in the direction you are pointing.
