Yulio Feature Update: Simpler Viewing & Sharing

June 09, 2017

We have some exciting news to share! As of today, we've launched a newer, simpler viewing and sharing experience for both you and your clients. You can now send your VR experience to clients via URLs with no additional steps.

Currently, when viewers visit a permalink for your VR project, they see an intermediary page with options to view the scene in their browser or send to a phone to view in VR. We’ve been working to simplify the process. Now in one click, your client will be viewing your design with no additional steps and no Yulio mechanics in the way.

Here's how it worked before - additional clicks were required to view a scene:

Here's how it works now - the viewer will experience the scene immediately:

We've also simplified sending the scene to a phone for full stereoscopic VR mode. We’ve removed the need to get a pairing code from our mobile app. Instead, send your scene via text and your client will be dropped right into your design. To send the text, just click on the goggles icon while you're in Fishtank mode. Here's how it looked before - where the viewer needed a pairing code and had to switch between their browser and headset to view a VR project in a headset:

And here's how it looks now - You just send the design to your phone, straight from your desktop:

In just a few seconds, you'll receive a text message with a URL and a 3 character code. It looks like this:

Click on the link and hit Go. If you do not have the Yulio app installed, you'll be prompted to download it from the appropriate app store. Once the Yulio app is downloaded, the experience sent via text will load immediately. If you already have the Yulio app, the experience will open immediately when you hit Go. We also made it easier to share your VR project on social media directly from the scene. Click on the sharing icon, like this:

And choose the social platform you want to showcase your design on:

At Yulio, we talk a lot about reducing VR friction. We know making it simple for you to collaborate on designs and share VR scenes is critical to how easily you are able to integrate VR in your workflow. Today’s changes are designed to get you and your clients into your designs faster, so you can start presenting and gathering feedback with fewer barriers.
