STYLY Session Function Manual: Overview

In this manual, we will introduce how to use the “STYLY Session Function” in three parts (Overview/How to Hold a Session/How to Join a Session).

What is STYLY Session?

By using the STYLY Session function, multiple people can experience the same scene simultaneously, with the “host” acting as a guide.
By registering multiple scenes in the Session information, you can switch between scenes as a group.

Introducing the Function

The following is a basic description of the Session function.

When you Host a Session

  • You can create a Session by specifying multiple scenes to be included in the Session from STYLY Studio (Session Management Screen).
  • We recommend no more than five scenes in a Session, because the more scenes you add, the more you will need to download at the start of Session.
  • Multiple “guests” can join a Session and communicate with each other in the same scene, for example, by talking via voice chat.
  • We recommend that the maximum number of participants in a session is 10 or less due to the load.
  • In order to connect to a Session from a remote location that is different from the Session host’s network, the remote guest must be logged in.

When you Join a Session

  • Guests can join the Session via the STYLY XR Client* / STYLY Session Web version / STYLY App for Smartphones
  • Guests can join the Session from remote locations.
    • If you join the Session from a STYLY XR client, you can join from the same network even if you are not logged in (STYLY account).
  • All participants, including a guest, can perform the following operations.
    • Mute your own voice in voice chat.
    • Leave the Session
  • All participants, including a guest, are allowed to move within the Session.
    • The method of movement depends on the platform you are using.
