vTime is the world's first sociable network in virtual reality on mobile. Completely cross-platform, vTime is now available for Google Cardboard for a limited number of devices.
Our VR social network allows you to chat and share with friends and family in incredible virtual destinations using only your phone, a Cardboard headset, and earphones with a built in microphone.
• Be sociable, together: vTime allows you to socialize and chat with family and friends in virtual reality from wherever you are in the world.
• Upload your flat and 360 images to share with friends: Share 2D photos in The Archive, The Boardroom, or chat together with family and friends inside your memories in the 360 Gallery.
• Make it personal: Convey more of what makes you unique with thousands of avatar customisation options and millions of bespoke facial combinations, with more personalization options on the way.
• Choose your destination: Relax and chat with friends in any one of our 20 beautifully realized environments, with new and seasonal environments launching throughout the year.
• Express yourself with vMote gestures - our suite of 17 virtual emojis - including blow kiss, wave and celebrate!
• Keep your friends close: Build and manage friends lists to easily connect, and see when your VR social circle is online.
• Stay in touch with ‘vText’: Private message vTime friends whether they’re online or offline.
• Add interests and spoken languages to your public profile, making it even easier to find compatible users to chat with.
• Immersive audio: Full 3D spatial audio creates a sense of “being there”.
• Take a vSelfie: What goes on in our VR social network doesn't have to stay there! Take vSelifes of yourself and your friends and share your vTime experiences!
• vTime without a headset with Magic Window: You don’t even need a Cardboard headset - just choose ‘Magic Window’ and then vTime straight from your phone’s screen.
• Low bandwidth: Connect over 3G, 4G, cellular, or WI-FI.
