VR collaboration platform Spatial Systems launched Oculus Quest Store, delivering a suite of 3D AR and VR features to make 3D remote work more comfortable than before. Spatial also stated that it would develop its app by integrating it with Google Docs, Figma, Slack, and whiteboard tools. Work tools created to improve collaboration, like conference calls, do not satisfactorily create environments that produce a sense of having other people in the room. That is why Spatial is working on these workplace problems and solving issues of isolation with VR.
“We constantly look to our customers to hear how to make the experience more personal and expressive for them — we want to make it so intuitive that it barely feels like work at all. Our power users spend several hours a day in Spatial, showing we are on a trajectory for holographic collaboration that not only replaces major meetings but transforms the way we work throughout the day, mirroring how we might interact with others in physical office.” – Anand Agarawala, co-founder and chief executive of Spatial.
As Spatial is available in the Quest Store now, buyers can bring cloud integrations into Google Drive, Figma, and Slack through VR with automatic imports and requires no manual uploads. It is now feasible to share and capture ideas with the whiteboard tool and pull up and organize web pages for real-time editing.
“I’ve been using Spatial for several months and have found it to be a great space to hold collaborative group meetings with my business partner, colleagues, and my clients. We use the platform for client introduction meetings to display PDFs, artifacts, screen sharing, and internal working and brainstorm sessions with Ed Haravon, my co-founder.” Merrilees also noted that being able to share more than one doc at a time is helpful and conducive to productivity.” – Get Real co-founder Rob Merrilees.
Spatial works across many AR and VR devices, including the Nreal, Oculus Quest, Microsoft HoloLens, Magic Leap through the web, and is continuously including more hardware devices as choice options to its supported list.
