This is a party! Once you appear in the space, walk around to see who’s there and what the space looks like. Wander around and enjoy yourself.

Topia tips

  • It’s a videoconferencing site with a spatial aspect that allows you to move around and join conversations by proximity.
  • Headphones aren’t required but they’re a good idea.
  • As you walk towards a group, the video and audio will fade in. As you walk away, it’ll fade out.
  • If more than 10 people gather together in one space, it gets a little glitchy and you may not be able to see everyone.
  • If your video hangs, try walking away from a group and back.
  • To navigate, use your arrow keys to move a short distances and click on a destination to walk somewhere far away.
  • To zoom in and out, use your browser’s zoom function (command or ctrl +/- , usually)
  • Turn off any adblockers or content blockers for the window you’re using.
  • You can’t turn off your own camera, but you can cover it. Do this if you’re stepping away from the party for a moment.
  • To leave, close the browser tab.
