Space Analytics

Unfortunately, we do not have a way to track analytics at this time. It is something we are exploring and hope to implement, but we do not currently have a release date for this feature. 

You can upvote this request or add a comment with what analytics you're looking for on the Space Statistics/Analytics/Data thread at https://feedback.gather.town.

Recording

Gather currently does not record your screen at any time, and we do not currently provide recording services directly in our platform. However, we welcome you to use any free online tool to record your own Gather events. 

Some of our users have used the following free third-party tools for screen recording in Gather:

Warning: We are not affiliated with, nor do we offer support for any of these third-party tools; please use at your discretion. 

You can upvote this request or add a comment with what recording features you're looking for on the Record directly from inside Gather thread at https://feedback.gather.town.

Embed Gather

Unfortunately, embedding Gather is quite a difficult process due to permissions with cameras and mics inside the embedded iFrame. However, we have seen other theaters and conferences embed Gather into their own websites by finding a way to ensure Gather is first opened by the user separately, outside of the iframe, to grant our site camera and microphone permissions before using the embedded version.

One other setting that may help with embedment of the Gather site is to enable  third party cookies in your web browser. Any and all guests would also need to enable 3rd party cookies, which we realize is not ideal.

Custom Avatars

We currently offer an almost indefinite selection of customizations for avatars at your disposal. Unfortunately, Gather does not support self-made or customized avatars at this time due to how avatars are stored and retrieved. This is a feature we would like to implement in the future; however, it is currently on our list of longer term goals.

Virtual Background

Right now Gather doesn't support virtual backgrounds natively, but you can use any number of virtual webcam software options to get that functionality, and then use those virtual webcams inside of Gather.

Here's a tutorial on how to do that with OBS, which is a free and open source application that we know works well with Gather on both Mac and PC.  Unfortunately, we can't provide support on third party software, but there are lots of great resources out there to help you!

Change Space Name

Unfortunately, you cannot rename a Space at this time. However, you can copy or clone your existing Space and give the new space the name that you prefer.
