Beta Release 84 Coming Soon and New Office Hours

Beta Release 84

We're releasing Beta Release 84 on Monday, September 23, 2019 between 3-6 p.m. PT / 10 p.m. - 1 a.m. UTC. There is a protocol change.

In this release, we implemented Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), which improves voice quality by preventing the echo that results in open mic setups. By default, AEC is turned on, and you can turn it off in Settings > Audio. Documentation is available at Acoustic Echo Cancellation.

We also made avatar improvements, added new properties to Create, improved performance for interface's rendering pipelines, and much more.

Check out the full release notes.

What are some examples of 3D assets I can build in High Fidelity?
3D avatars, wearables, environments, and other artistic assets.

Do I need any prior experience?
Nope, these Office Hours are open to total beginners and advanced users alike.

I’d like to host my own community event in High Fidelity. How do I submit that to the events schedule so it will be promoted?
We want to continue to encourage and support people running their own events! To get your event or experience added to the calendar and as a Feature Card in GoTo, submit your community event or experience using this form and we will review it.
