Vr chat rooms are a place to hang out and talk in real-time with other users in a virtual world limited only by the players’ creativity. While they can be fun and a great way to meet new people, they also present a unique platform for harassment and even bullying. This article will offer some tips for staying safe in these virtual spaces.
VRChat is a free-to-play platform accessible on Windows Mixed Reality (WMR), HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift. Once you’ve got your headset and controllers set up, launching the app and entering a room will let you start chatting with other players in VR. The built-in microphone on your headset will pick up your voice, and the headphones will emit 3D audio, making it easy to find others in the room. There are several settings to tweak, including locomotion and avatar customization, so you can make the experience your own.
While most players are friendly and willing to talk, you may encounter some that aren’t. Fortunately, the quick menu on your controllers (Vive, Rift, and WMR) will allow you to remove an offending player’s avatar and even mute them in-game.
