Mozilla strides along when it comes to supporting virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR).
Last year, the company released the experimental browser-based social platform Hubs, where users could create rooms and share content. Today, Mozilla has announced plans to integrate with the popular Discord community platform.
Discord is a voice and chat platform commonly used by online gaming and technology communities. In recent years, more and more developers use it to connect with players, publish updates and use as a portal for beta testing.
“Hubs integration with Discord allows participants to use their Discord ID to connect to rooms and connects the Discord channel to a specific Hubs room to capture text chat, photos and multimedia shared between users in each space,” explains Liv Ericson, Senior Product Manager and Greg Fodor, Engineering Manager, about Hubs on the Mozilla blog.
“With the ability to add web content to rooms in Hubs, users who are together can interact and entertain each other, watch videos, chat, share their screen / webcam and drag out 3D objects from Sketchfab and Google Poly. Users will be able to chat on the connected Discord channel to post messages, see the media added to the Hubs room, and easily get notifications about who joined or left at any time. ”
As it is fairly common for Mozilla, the company continues to promote WebVR. Because of this, the system will work with almost any VR headset, you just have to go into the browser. To try Discord integration, you need to register for beta testing.
