AltspaceVr is a Google-backed virtual reality startup who is developing a shared virtual reality platform. This platform will give users a chance to share a virtual space and interact together, much like the real world. Users can play games together, watch movies together, or experience anything on the internet together. Currently, AltspaceVR’s platform is in closed beta.
“There’s something special about being together,” said Eric Romo, founder and CEO, AltspaceVR. “With AltspaceVR’s social VR platform, people feel as if they are in the same place, where they can enjoy shared experiences like watching a movie or sporting event. We’re bringing VR beyond gaming applications to give people the opportunity to interact in the most natural way possible online.”
