Thursday, May 10th, 2018 from 5:30PM to 6:30PM PT
featuring Alex Kipman and Keegan Law


Starting today, every AltspaceVR community member gets their own Homespace. This is your homebase in AltspaceVR. Design your Homespace by choosing from an extensive selection of environments. You can watch videos, play games, and customize your space with our spotlight app: “Shane’s Editor”. No matter where your friends live in the world, gather them all in AltspaceVR and host a game night.


We’re excited to spotlight a new feature created by one of our AltspaceVR community members. It’s called Shane’s Editor and it’s available for everyone. You can access Shane’s Editor in your Homespace and can build virtual worlds without writing a single line of code. Apply 3D objects or effects into your environment while experimenting with new interactables, layers, objects, and sounds. Customize your Homespace and share it with your friends.

You don’t have need to be a VR developer to apply these customization features. If you want to be creative and further experiment with the feature, join our development meetups and information sessions.

Coming up soon! Shane will be hosting a weekly event where he will provide tutorials and showcase some worlds created by our early access users. The first event will be on Wednesday, May 16th. Sign-up to Shane’s Channel in AltspaceVR


We’ve added three new experiences for you to try out.

Poker: Plan out a Texas Hold-em Poker night with friends from around the world.
Trigger Words: Get your team to guess as many words possible without saying the trigger words.
Friend Maker: Find and chat with people who have similar interests.


We are always looking to give our community more ways to express themselves. Today we’re announcing 10 new clothing items for your avatar so you can find a look that matches you. This is only the beginning so keep an eye out for more updates.
