πŸ¦‰ Overview

This article will help you move your avatar so you can join in on the fun. And the meetings (🎊)


Moving your avatar is important, because walking up to someone (like you do in real life) is how you start a video call.

There are two main ways to do this:

1. Using the Keyboard: Press the W-A-S-D keys or the arrow keys to move in a specific direction. This might take a bit of practice because of the orientation of the room. You got this πŸ‘.

2. Using your Mouse: Simply point and click and your avatar will move to the selected location.

πŸ’‘ Note: If objects are getting in your way, clicking with your mouse will automatically maneuver you around them.

We have recently also added the ability to jump in SoWork! Just press the spacebar on your keyboard! You can also press X near a chair, bench, etc. to sit :)

Meeting up with people in SoWork mimics how you do so in real life. You walk up to them to start a conversation and walk away to end it.
