One of Arkio's main features is the possibility to design in real-time with up to 16 other users located anywhere in the world. To start a multi-user session, select the meetings icon in the Utilities menu or screen UI
When starting or joining a meeting the following details need to be filled:
Username - your avatar name that will be displayed to other users in the meeting
Meeting name - Give your meeting a name to share with other people (needs to be at least 3 letters)
Password name - Add a password to this meeting for more login security (optional)
All users must enter an identical Meeting name and Password name to join the same meeting.
The first user to join a meeting becomes the Meeting Master. Users joining later are not able to switch between scenes unless they become the meeting master. Active users in a meeting will be visible in the multi-user panel and in the scene by the corresponding color and name tag.
Custom content like locally loaded images, 3D models, programs, or maps are shared in real-time with meeting participants so everyone's always looking at the same model and everyone can make new suggestions on these models. All modeling operations in meetings are simultaneous, so modeling operations done by one user can be undone by other users.
You can mute yourself in a meeting by selecting the microphone icon behind your name. If you don't see your mic icon light up while talking your microphone is likely not set up correctly. This can be changed by selecting meeting settings in the top left corner. You can also gather all users for guides tours and jump to other users directly
If you don't hear other users please make sure your device's speaker settings are properly set to the headset and make sure your sound is turned on.
If you are not seeing other users while using the same Meeting name and Password you might be on an older version of Arkio and need to close and update the app or you might experience internet connection issues that you can try to overcome by joining another (wireless) network
