Portals

Portals are a way to easily travel between experiences with a group of friends. When you open a portal, it appears at your location and stays open for up to two minutes. While the portal is open, other visitors may click it to travel to the experience you have provided.

Opening a portal using the Atlas

 The easiest way to open a portal is to use the Atlas:

  1. Choose Go > Find places to go (Atlas) from the main menu to open the Atlas
  2. Click the Experiences tab.
  3. Choose an experience and view its details by clicking the experience image (but not the Visit button).
  4. In the experience details, click the Create portal button to open the portal at your location. The portal stays open for up to two minutes, or until you open another portal.

Opening a portal using Nearby Chat

You can open a portal using the Nearby tab of the Chat panel by using the /portal command:

  1. If the Chat panel is not already open, open it by choosing Socialize > Chat from the main menu.
  2. On the Nearby tab of the Chat panel, enter the command /portal, followed by a valid experience URL.
  3. Press Enter or click Send Message to open the portal at your location. The portal stays open for up to two minutes, or until you open another portal.
Note: You may only have one portal open at a time. If you open a second portal, the first one closes immediately.

To open a portal, enter /portal, followed by a valid experience URL, into Nearby Chat. When a valid URL is used with the /portal command, a portal appears at your avatar's location.

Getting an experience URL

In order to open a portal, you must first obtain the URL of the experience you would like to visit. You can easily get an experience's URL from the Atlas:

  1. Open the Atlas by choosing Go > Find places to go (Atlas) from the main menu.
  2. Find your desired destination and view its details by clicking its portrait (but not the Visit button).
  3. Click the Copy URL button to copy the experience's URL to your clipboard.

Traveling through a portal

To travel through an open portal, you must move close enough to it that the portal's name appears when you hover your mouse or VR pointer over it. Then, click the portal and agree to the prompt in order to follow the portal's creator to the new destination.
