Microsoft Mixed Reality and AI expert Alex Kipman informed about the changes the company has made to its virtual social network AltspaceVR.
As it became known, in order to improve security of AltspaceVR, it was decided to close all social centers available until recently, including News and Campfire.
Additionally, Microsoft has privacy bubbles enabled by default, and new attendees who join events are now automatically muted.
Additionally, you will need a Microsoft account to log into AltspaceVR in the coming weeks. This allows the company to improve content ratings and increase moderation on the platform.
As part of the new initiative, parents can also grant and restrict access to AltspaceVR for family members aged 13 and over. Microsoft will announce how and when these changes will be implemented within a few months.
“Everyone should feel safe with apps like AltspaceVR that make the metaverse a reality. We are committed to putting up fences and look forward to sharing more as we embark on this journey with you.”Kipman shared.
Before “personal limits” Avatars in their metaverse added meta. A feature to limit harassment in VR is enabled by default on the Horizon Worlds platform and Horizon Venues live streaming service.
