The Basics of Kumospace
How do I move around?
There are multiple ways to move around in Kumospace.
🖱️ Click with your mouse or 👆 tap on your screen to where you want to go, and your video will move to that location.
⌨️ Use your keyboard’s Up, Down, Left, and Right arrow keys. These keys will move you up, down, left, and right, respectively.
✋ On a phone or tablet, swipe towards a certain direction. This will move you in that direction.
You can zoom in and out to view more or less of your surroundings and other people in Kumospace. Zooming in and out can be easily done by clicking the plus (+) and minus (–) icons at the bottom left of the screen. Alternatively, pressing the + and – ⌨️ keys will do the same.
What is spatial audio?
Sound in Kumospace behaves like it does in real life. The closer you are to someone, the louder they sound. We call this spatial audio.
This technology allows groups to organically form and dissolve in different areas of the same space at the same time. In Kumospace, the best discussions don’t happen in dedicated breakout rooms but fluidly and serendipitously throughout the room.
Who can hear me?
At the bottom of your browser window, there is a “Range” button. Click it to see who is within your range and can hear you and who is beyond your range and cannot hear you. Your range is indicated by the dotted circle.
