Is there a party system in Oculus?

Answered by Robert Flynn

There is a party system in Oculus that allows you to connect and communicate with other users during VR experiences. The party system is a great way to socialize and interact with friends or other players while enjoying virtual reality.

To access the party system, you can press the headphones icon on your wrist while in a VR environment or game. This will bring up the party menu where you can manage your party settings and communication options.

One of the features of the party system is the ability to change who hears you. By pressing the headphones icon, you can select from three options: nearby, party, or everyone. Choosing “nearby” means only users who are physically close to you in the virtual world will be able to hear you. This can be useful for local interactions or private conversations.

The “party” option allows you to communicate with members of your party. When you join a party, you can invite friends or other players to join you. This enables you to chat and coordinate with your party members while playing together. It’s a great way to stay connected and work together in multiplayer games or experiences.

If you want to broadcast your voice to everyone in the virtual world, you can select the “everyone” option. This allows you to speak to anyone who is currently in the same virtual environment as you. It can be a fun way to engage with a larger group of people, join in conversations, or just socialize with others.

Additionally, if you are in create mode and want to collaborate with members of your party, Oculus provides the option to add them as collaborators when you travel to a world. This means you can work together on building or designing virtual worlds, sharing ideas, and creating immersive experiences as a team.

Oculus offers a party system that allows you to connect with others, manage your communication options, and collaborate with friends in virtual reality. Whether you want to chat with nearby users, communicate with your party members, or interact with everyone in the virtual world, the party system provides a versatile and social experience in VR.
